In your small business, how can you get reliable answers to your complex marketing problems?
(And how on earth do you find answers to these questions at 3:26 in the morning?)
On most days, a small business owner has questions.
These questions may involve something to do with marketing, or technology, or how to roll out a project. It may be about how to launch an offline company, or how to promote an online product.
And the natural response to such a situation is to try and find the answers via the Internet. But often the answers online are unpredictable and contradictory.
What's worse is that the source of the information can't always be trusted. You're never sure what's being revealed and what's being 'conveniently forgotten.' Plus when you do fix things in your marketing strategy, website etc., there's often no other trusted source you can turn to, to ask for an opinion.
It's a bit like standing outside the cave
It's cold, it's raining buckets. And the last bolt of lightning was uncomfortably close for you to jump. You look inside the cave and see a nice warm fire, a party going on and lots of soothing hot food. But outside the cave you're on your own.
And when you're on your own you struggle.
You struggle because there's no one to turn to. If you get stuck, you've got to work things out yourself. You get more frustrated and often spend hours going around in circles.
And within 5000bc, you'll find the warmth of the Cave. (Yes, there is really a forum called the Cave within 5000bc, where we all gather).
In the Cave, you'll find the warm comfort of other Cavers who are searching for reliable information, just like you. You'll find resources and ideas that will help you move ahead, and progress rapidly. Instead of standing out in the cold rain, you'll experience the satisfaction of sitting around a warm fireplace, warming your toes and getting the answers you seek in a safe environment.
So what's inside 5000bc that makes it so warm?
1) People with kind eyes and steely determination.
Reason 1: People with kind eyes and steely determination
But how do the members interact?
So which are the 'right kind of people?'
The second factor is that despite being around since the year 2003, the membership of 5000bc is deliberately kept small and intimate. Based on our member's advice, we accept few members every month and grow slowly, because we need to get to know each other and work with each other as a group. You'll find people from countries all over the world. Some countries represented are Hungary, Netherlands, USA, Canada, France, India, New Zealand, Japan, Malaysia, UK, Australia, Italy, Germany...um...you can say it's a very diverse place.
But it's people with the right attitude who are determined to make progress and make their business better.
And that takes us to Reason No.2
Reason 2: Information that's specific to your current and future needs.
So how do we make this specifically apply to you?
So the way it works is like this
Unlike a search engine that will just pop back an answer, the answers you get in 5000bc are specific. You will be not only be given an opinion, but will also be directed to detailed information within the Cave itself. For example, if you wanted to find out how to create signature stories (like the 'seven red bags' story) you'll have a wealth of information. And this is the most important fact of all. If the information doesn't exist, we'll create it. And often the answer may be as many as four-five articles. Sometimes it can be a whole report—created just based on a single question.
Unlike other forums where the forum owner is nowhere to be seen, I'm there from 4am (NZ Time) answering questions through the year (except when I take my vacations—and the vacation dates are announced well in advance). On most days you'll find me there at 5am, 6am, 11am, 12pm (People ask me if I ever sleep. The answer is yes, but I am around in the Cave a lot). Each question is answered in great detail. And amazing as it may sound, I may even write a series of articles purely based on your questions. Of course if you need proof, it's plain to see.
Unlike other forums that are dead most of the time, you can clearly see the amazing activity on the 5000bc forum. The forum allows you to collaborate, to network, to get your questions answered, and it's just a great place to hang out. The rule of the forum is simple: Be kind, be helpful or begone. We love diversity of opinion, but there's no name-calling or stupid behaviour.
And just in case, you don't like using a forum, you can use the 'Ask Sean' feature, that's like a hot button right to my inbox.
And this is because we want to advance as a group
So if you ask just a few questions or 4779 questions, your question will be promptly answered in great detail and with great courtesy (There's no such thing as a 'too big' question or 'too silly' question).
Which takes us to Reason 3.
Reason 3: Fun, fun and a source of great inspiration.
And of course you get inspiration from the way we (that's my wife Renuka and I) run things. How we have taken 3-month vacations since the year 2004. And how we've grown the business systematically and ethically. And without any hoopla. And you'll get a template for what can be achieved with a ton of hard work and a ton of fun.
And finally, Reason 4
Reason 4: First preference to events and courses
As a 5000bc member you get first preference to these courses and workshops. Some are free, some are paid. But there's always a massive rush to the door and that's why it pays to be a 5000bc member. This is also why you almost never see the huge 'launch formula' that you see with most 'gurus'. There's nothing to launch here. We all understand what needs to be done and we get down to it.
And of course you get goodies that others don't see. Courses that others don't hear of at all. It all happens in 5000bc. And it happens all the time.
"The obstacle preventing me from buying 5000bc was the uncertainty of knowing if it would have really been worth it."
"I remember I was checking out the free stuff on 5000bc after reading the Brain Audit. I was having some problems with the videos on the site.
I sent Sean an email about it. I was very impressed with his quick and amiable response. The video issue was fixed shortly after wards. And I was impressed with the content.
This coupled with Sean's response made me feel very comfortable. And that seemed to be the tipping point for me. 5000bc has lot of great content. Content that is fun and helpful. Not that dry and boring stuff you find most places.
The specific feature I like best is the access to Sean.
Also the other benefits are the: Special Reports, The Rips and the great community.
I would definitely recommend 5000bc because if you enjoyed the Brain Audit it's the next step to working through the concepts. It's a big help to understanding and applying things to your business.
I'd just like to add that I feel very good about the decision to join. I've learned a lot. And continue to do so everyday."
Some of the information you get in 5000bc
And that's just the information part of things. There's also a helpful, kind community within 5000bc.
Some of the topics covered in the Vanishing Reports include: Blogging, Video, Visuals and Conversion, Domain Naming Techniques, Viral Campaigns, Headline Techniques and other such goodies. The sooner you get in, the more you have access to the reports that will follow (most of these reports have already vanished, but you'll see some good topics in the future).
Can I see a sample before I join?
Sure, why not. Sure, sure, sure...:) Be my guest!
Here's a sample of the critiques in video
Here's a sample of a Cave Discussion
Click on one of the images on the right to see examples of Cave activity.
Here's a sample of a question concerning how to apply the Brain Audit
The Brain Audit is comprehensive in giving you the concept of how the customer thinks. And members of 5000bc, get to take that concept one step (or many steps further). They ask questions about how the Brain Audit applies to their own business. And their own marketing. And their own marketing material. Of course, answers are given. And you can keep asking. And each question will be answered in detail.
The screenshot on the right shows one discussion with 117 posts. That means the member asked about 40-50 questions on one post, and at least 60-70 answers were given, both by Sean and the rest of the experienced Cave members. This means you can keep asking questions, no matter how small or 'silly' they seem. Each answer is given patiently, and the problem is resolved. But hey, you'll figure it out yourself, when you join us in 5000bc.
Here's a sample of how the material is presented each week

Here's a sample of audio files
Sometimes the content will be good, but I'm at a stage now where I don't necessarily need more content, and if I do, I need more specific training courses/programs.
What attracted me to 5000bc—It came down to one thing: access to Sean. I still remember reading the one sentence on the sales page where Sean said "You can ask as many questions as you like, which would be equal to $60,000 in consulting" or something along those lines.
5000bc is different—For one, Sean actually talks to people and the members are having fun. In other forums/memberships often just the members are in there sharing and talking, and they might not know what they are talking about or what advice they're giving.
You would think a resource that gave you so much value would cost at least $200 a month, right? I mean you can literally pick up the phone and call a coach or consultant in your city and easily expect to pay $200 per hour. And if you ask several questions over the year, you could quite easily rack up several hundred if not thousands of dollars in advice fees. Of course those advice fees wouldn't include any reading material, videos, critiques etc. You'd have to pay a lot more for that.
So would it be almost unreal to learn that 5000bc costs just a little over $250 a year?
It's so unreal that most people think there must be a catch. How can you get so much for so little? ? How come you get access to all the article archives? How can it be possible that you can ask hundreds of questions and get answers (some members have asked over 300 questions each). There has got to be a catch.
And no there is no catch. You get everything just as it is described here on this page. And if you feel like contacting a current member, please get in touch with us, and we'll be happy to give you their details.
