How to Sell Online with Kurt Kummerer!

It’s Thursday and I’m here again with someone you certainly have seen on this blog a couple of times. Beside being an excellent writer, this blogger’s frequent visit to my blog and his skills of networking could not just keep me away from noticing him.

His blog recently has become one of the top on my list and I’m absolutely excited to talk about him today. Well, before we get into some personal details, check out the list of those I have featured in the past here. Let’s meet out blogger for the week.

Meet Kurt Kummerer

Kurt KummererKurt Kummerer is new to the blogging scene and he lives in Methuen, MA with his wife Marie and 17 month old son Evan.  Kurt works full-time in sales selling to eye doctors in which he plans to jettison in the near future.

Kurt’s Story

Kurt has been working in corporate America since 2001. For the past 14 years he has served in a sales/sales training capacity for numerous organizations mostly in the eye care segment, with a brief stop in life science research.

He has had a successful career and has been a part of teams responsible for bringing new products to market and growing those brands resulting in millions of dollars in sales.

Kurt has a passion for sales and his desire to help others succeed is unmatched.

He was on the fast track and moving through the ranks of corporate America with blazing speed due to his tenacity and work ethic. In 2006 he learned what corporate America was all about. He was downsized and out of the work force for 7 months.

Kurt always had an entrepreneurial itch that needs to be scratched, and a desire to run his own business, but decided that was not the time and went back into corporate America where he remains today.

In 2008, Kurt along with his wife began to scratch that itch by investing in residential real estate where he purchases multi-family units, fixes them up and rents them out to prospective tenants.

He allows equity to build up over time and sell for a profit. He continues to invest in real estate to this day.

In 2011, he decided it was time to get more aggressive in his entrepreneurial endeavors and entered into a partnership with 2 other associates to start up a company for those in life science research who ordered products. In that industry you are required to get a certain number of product quotes before buying anything.

Our company allowed you to seek multiple quotes anonymously. There was nothing out there like this. After trying to gain traction for a year, we failed and could not make it happen. As a result we dissolved the partnership in early 2012.

Kurt was introduced to the world of network marketing through a friend of his. Kurt joined a network marketing company and endured all the pomp and circumstance that goes with that. While in this company Kurt thought to himself. Wait a minute. Network marketing is no different than sales.

He knows how to sell, but how do you find prospects for your network marketing opportunity? You can’t go knocking on people’s doors? The light dawned on Marblehead. Use the internet. So what did Kurt do next?

Started a Blog

kurt kummerer blogKurt set up a blog and spent all of his time “learning” and not implementing what he learned. Then life got in the way and Kurt did not do anything with his blog and quit his network marketing company.

Kurt would continue doing research on making money online opportunities and joined a Top Tier affiliate program with hopes of promoting that program through his blog in December of 2013.

Then in March of 2014 Kurt’s son Evan was born. That was a game changer to say the least for Kurt and his family.

Kurt blogged twice a day for one month that summer posting short content that was not necessarily quality. While having a newborn there was no way Kurt could keep up that blistering pace, thus he stopped blogging.

Furthermore, he wanted to get some clarity on what he was going to blog about. So it was now 2015.

As the stress of unrealistic expectations, travel, and decrease in income potential Kurt decided he was finally going to do something about it and make things happen.

When the Change Happened

Since April 15, 2015 Kurt has been blogging consistently posting at least once a week on his blog, where he blogs about sales and marketing training for newbie marketers.

He started to blog and worked hard on not only learning how to produce quality, in-depth content, but implementing what he had learned.

One of his most popular posts to date:

Can’t Make a Sale If Your Life Depended On It? Here’s Why

Also, knowing that in selling anything it is all about building relationships. He reached out and started to build relationships with other bloggers by leaving thoughtful comments consistently that adds to the conversation.

This is how Kurt met Adrienne Smith who is awesome and someone you need to get to know if you have not done so already.

Additionally, being social on Twitter has helped him in this regard as well.

Kurt would be remiss if he did not mention Enstine Muki who has afforded him the opportunity to be featured on his blog today.

Kurt continues to build relationships with other bloggers daily.

His burning desire to teach other marketers how to sell online is Kurt’s mission and where he focuses his time and efforts.

    Your story can really inspire those who are new to the “WORLD” of real estate.
    Interesting post…!!! 🙂
    Cheers buddy….

  2. Awesome post, I have never heard of Kurt but I just read his “Can’t Make a Sale If Your Life Depended On It? Here’s Why” post and it was fantastic. Business is all about being a salesman and it looks like he is pretty dang good at that. Thanks for the read!

  3. Really Fabulous, I also agree with “Can’t Make a Sale If Your Life Depended On It?”. as my prospective Selling product online is an art. if you know then you will archive anything in your life. thank for this sell online guide with different serious.

  4. Impressive. Kurt’s blog has seen such tremendous growth within such a short time. We can all learn from him.

  5. Just like Kurt I have a sales background and for far too long had a focus on “learning” rather than taking at the very least “imperfect action”. I had purchased so many training programs but had never implemented any of them fully. I totally agree with Kurt when he talks about the importance of building relationships. Doing this everyday and consistently adding value has been my key to success online. Many thanks for sharing this inspirational post.

    • Hi Peter,

      Nice to meet you. I like how you used the word “imperfect” because there is no such thing as being perfect at anything really as that does not exist.

      Having a sales background Peter you know the importance of building relationships as that is the key to success in my opinion not only in sales, but your online endeavors as well.

      Thanks for sharing your key to success online Peter.

      We appreciate you stopping by, reading, and engaging.


  6. After reading the above story I see Kurt has a background that in one respect is similar to mine – he marketed big ticket/top tier products. I also see that Kurt has a sales background like me.

    This is good – most bloggers are a little weak on the sales side of things, so power to Kurt for teaching sales skills.

    Thanks for introducing Kurt to us, Enstine!

    • Hi Kim,

      Nice to meet you here on Enstine’s blog. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment for Enstine and myself.

      I have to agree with you as blogger’s are a little weak in the area of selling.

      Fact of the matter is if you don’t know how to sell you’ll never make any money.

      Have a great day Kim.


  7. Hello,

    I read several of his excellent post and it’s obvious he not only knows of what he
    speaks, but he definitely cares about other people’s success as well!

    • Hey Jackie,

      Thank you so much for the comment. It is nice to meet you here on Enstine’s blog. I appreciate you taking the time to read my posts.

      Enjoy the rest of your day.


  8. Hi Enstine,

    Thank for continuing feature interesting bloggers here. I am also a full-time worker who is trying to build my own thing on the side.

    Sorry that I can’t show my real identity, as you understand, I prefer to keep low profile as much as possible.

    To be frank, I started my first blog since 2008 but it didn’t go anywhere due to non-consistency.

    Kurt real example is inspiring me to keep going and find some time to blog consistency. I hope to be able to grown a targeted blog and earn some side income very soon.


    • Leon,

      Nice to meet you. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. It makes my day knowing that my story is inspiring you to make time for your blogging endeavors.

      If you want something bad enough, you’ll find a way to make it happen.

      Have a great day.


  9. Hi Yvonne,

    Nice to meet you as well. My hats off to you Yvonne for working a full-time job and making time for your blogging efforts. I can definitely relate. It feels like you’re trying to drink out of a fire hose a lot of the time.

    No doubt about it Yvonne there have been twists and turns along the way, but you got to stay the course and see things through no matter what happens. Persist and good things will happen.

    I second that in regards to Adrienne. She is definitely a great person to know for sure. We are fortunate to have met her.

    I appreciate the kind words Yvonne.


  10. Hi Enstine,

    What another amazing guest you have on here today? You do a great job bringing the best from the blogging world.

    Hi Kurt, it is a pleasure meeting you here on Enstine’s blog and to learn more about you. I applaud your efforts balancing your time with full time job, blogging and taking care of your young son Evan. I also engage in a full time job at a hospital and trying to balance my time with blogging can prove a bit challenging at times.

    I noted some of the set backs you mentioned initially but glad to see that you were able to overcome that and you now post on a regular basis, weekly, on your blog.

    I recently connected with Adrienne and I concur with the sentiments you’ve shared about her. Really a great person to network and be in company with.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  11. Hi Kurt; so glad to meet you through enstine’s post. the one thing i noticed about your story is that we have one significant person and event in common. we both made a lot of progress in our blogging and online business lives after meeting adrienne smith and following her teachings about relationship marketing. i refer to her as my blogging mama. glad to connect with you now. best of luck max

    • Hi Max,

      Glad to meet you too here on Enstine’s blog. Yes, we do have that event and person in common. Adrienne is one of a kind and someone every blogger needs to know and connect with for sure. Your “blogging mama” knows her stuff and can teach you a ton about how this whole blogging thing works.

      It’s a pleasure to connect with you Max and thanks for the well wishes.


  12. Hey Enstine,

    Another great guest you have this week and someone I recently met and love what he shares.

    Hey Kurt, great seeing you here and welcome to the club. I enjoyed reading more about you and getting to know more of how you came to the online world and started blogging.

    As you know though, we recently met and I’m glad that we did because I love what you share and what you teach. I think it’s awesome how much you dedicated to blogging on top of your full-time job and of course taking care of Evan. Getting up SO early with him, well I applaud you my friend. My brain wouldn’t be functioning that early and certainly not to start reading blog posts.

    Thank you for the mention, what a nice surprise. Enjoyed reading more about you and I do hope that those who haven’t had that chance to meet you yet will stop by your blog and check out what you share.

    You have a great day and a wonderful weekend.


    • Hey Adrienne,

      Thrilled to be part of the club. I enjoyed sharing how I came to the online space and started blogging. If you would have asked me 10 years ago, heck 5 years ago where I thought I would be today, I would not have said going online and start blogging.

      I have to say I am happy that I am here and have had the opportunity to meet you and learn from you in the brief time I have known you. It’s definitely not easy juggling taking care of Evan, working full-time and being dedicated to blogging, but I welcome the challenge and enjoy it.

      Yeah, getting up SO early is a character flaw I think, but really part of the work ethic that my family instilled in me as a kid. I hope Evan inherits that when he gets older. Sometimes I am cross-eyed that early in the morning, but I suck it up because that is the time I have.

      My pleasure Adrienne and as you know you’re awesome!

      Have a great Thursday my friend.


  13. Hi enstine,

    It another great Thursday, isn’t it. And it nice to have you here Kurt.

    Although I haven’t check out Kurt’s blog but judging from the post and the comment above, it seems pretty cool.

    I will have to follow Kurt on Twitter and check out his blog. As I hope to connect with him right away.

    Than you both,

    • Hi Aderemi,

      Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment here. I am happy to be here and appreciative to Enstine for having me here today.

      I look forward to connecting with you on Twitter and seeing you over on my blog.


  14. Hey Dan.

    Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I am glad you liked my story that I have shared here on Enstine’s blog. The word “quit” does not exist in my vocabulary, and I am determined to succeed no matter what obstacles I face.

    Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog. I try to make sure that when I learn something new that I implement ASAP. I was not always that way.

    We all have a story to tell and if by telling mine I am able to inspire others in some way and it helps them that’s great.

    It’s great to meet you Dan.

    Enjoy the rest of your day.


  15. Hi Enstine,

    Thanks for having Kurt here today; I enjoyed every bit of the post, it re-enforced the need to never give up. Consistency is the key.

    Hi Kurt,

    I love your story man, I like the fact you kept the focus and drive; even when it was way more convenient to throw in the towel, you kept the hustle on… that’s the spirit, brother.

    I already checked out your blog and it just re-enforced the fact that there’s no substitute to learning; yes, Enstine said you are new to blogging, but the truth is that you’ve done so much reading up and it shows all over your blog in the quality of posts you share with your audience.

    I really hope that this story of yours will encourage and motivate other would-be or newbie bloggers to keep the hustle on and never give up.

    The greater the battle, the sweeter the victory.

    It may be rough initially, but it’s well worth the trouble; thousands or perhaps hundreds of thousands of people are tied to your destiny waiting for your story to find themselves. we will not disappoint them.

    Every successful man/woman has a story for the secrets of men are in their story; but the formation stage of this story is never palatable, that is the rough times, but it will pass, it never lingers forever.

    So guys, Keep the hope alive and keep hustling.

    Yes… You Can


  16. What another excellent choice Enstine!

    Kurt’s content is totally fabulous! I too recently found him as a direct
    result of leaving a comment on Coach & Mentor Adrienne Smith’s outstanding blog.

    I read several of his excellent post and it’s obvious he not only knows of what he
    speaks, but he definitely cares about other people’s success as well!

    The guy totally rocks, so you would be wise to heed his proven advice! Thanks so much
    for featuring him Enstine! I’m quite certain your audience will find his expertise extremely valuable!

    • Mark,

      I appreciate your kind words. I am glad to have connected with you. Uh oh. The pressure is on! I better make sure that I continue to produce fabulous content that you get something out of.

      Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment here on Enstine’s blog.

      Have a great day Mark.
