This Leaked Text Will Upset You, But…

I guarantee that what you’re about to read will both upset you and paradoxically also make you feel better about your internet business.

Tomorrow I’m going to show you how right now as you read this you’re losing money hand over fist, and how you can correct that with a few simple steps.

I’m going to show you by using 3 key learning points (plus a couple of bonus points for good measure) and to whet your appetite I’m going to leak part of the whole lesson here today.

Included in this leaked info is one of the bonus learning points. I don’t think I’m spoiling the fun for tomorrow by giving you this today, this is just to set the mood and prepare you for what’s coming.

*** Begin Leaked Text ***

First of all, if you’re marketing online then whatever niche you work in you should be building a list of subscribers. And assuming that you are, you should be making them a great offer the moment they sign up because this tactic definitely works.

Secondly, I want to hammer this principle home in numbers just so you understand the potential.

Assuming you can grow your mailing list by a modest 300 new subscribers per month (if not I’ll explain how to do that and more shortly), and that you make all your new subscribers a great special offer that sells for $67.

With a typical 1% conversion rate, you could earn:-

3 sales at $67 = $201 / month
$201 x 12 months = $2,412 / year

For just a few hours work that you did ONCE, you’ve added $2,412 / year to your income. Every year.

With a little testing and tweaking of the sales copy and offer, you can get most pages up to 3% in just a few weeks and it’s certainly worth the small amount of effort to do this.

Bonus Learning PointIncidentally, most people ignore trying to increase their conversions, when it’s the easiest thing to do of all.Imagine spending a few hours working on increasing your conversion from 1% to 3% and giving yourself a pay rise of 300% in the process.

Most people bash their brains out trying to get more traffic.

Not me. Not until I have the conversion figure up where I want it.

So, just to really bang that bonus learning point home, get your conversion up to 2% and the numbers look like this:-

6 sales at $67 = $402 / month
$402 x 12 months = $4,824 / year

Nearly five grand a year for a few hours work

Sound like a good deal? Well, I hope I’ve convinced you it makes sense to do this.

And how important it is to get everything in place as fast as you can, because the longer you leave it the more money you’re losing.

*** End Leaked Text ***

Okay, that’s enough. I hope you can already see that that the info I’m going to release for you tomorrow is dynamite for your internet business.

Incidentally, even though I said it’s possible to earn “five grand for a few hours work”, I’m also going to show you how to shortcut the few hours and make it more like an hour.

Well there’s no sense in making any of this difficult is there?

More tomorrow.

  1. Good point Frank, we put a website or blog together, get some traffic to it and see if it performs.

    I wonder how many websites that didn’t perform well were just abandoned that could have been goldmines with a little work to improve conversion rate.

    Looking forward to seeing what you have for us – maybe it can help me resurrect some of my forgotten under performing sites.

      Hi Mike,

      The principle behind this is something I’ve known for quite a while, but sometimes you just lose sight of things that can be very important to you through no fault of your own.

      Distractions can do it…

      I hope that when you read the full text, you’ll get a “aha!” moment, and shortly afterwards do something about it.

      I’ve said it before, and I’ll repeat it now.

      You guys and gals know I put out decent products. You know they’re something that you wouldn’t be ashamed of promoting (many other products out there fall in that category I’m sorry to say), and you know I always try to give good support. So you know that any prospects you send me are going to have a good time.

      If I can do things to help you build your own list, then hopefully you’ll send some of that traffic my way too.

      The learning points I’ll be covering tomorrow will help you see how to build your lists and make them pay. In time things can only get better.

      -Frank.

  2. Hi Frank, as I’ve told you on numerous occassions, I really enjoy reading your
    posts on your blog.
    I have to say that this small “Leaked text” has certainly made me excited to see
    what will be coming tomorrow.
    I have to admit that I’ve never once had an offer for my susbscribers ofther than
    “free” ebooks. As a newbie I’ve always wondered what all the fuss was about with regards to converssion rates and the like. The way you have worked out the figures etc. has made me change my mind about having an offer on the go. No wonder I’m not making any dosh lol.
    You certainly have shed new light on how I will be doing things in the future, so thank you for that, you always make things sound so easy and worth while doing. I just have to figure out how to set up that kind of system etc.
    I look forward to tomorrow.
    Take care
    Val

      Hi Valda,

      “Free” ebooks and products are good, but the issue there is that you collect freebie seekers who are unlikely to become customers.

      Using the key learning points from tomorrow, you’ll be finding out who will be one of your customers and who will be just a freebie seeker almost straight away.

    I like the idea of changing the numbers…A LOT!

    Great TIP and I’m looking forward to the continuation of this article series

  4. You just gave me my “aha” moment Frank. There goes the next couple of days sorting out those pages I have been meaning to tweak for a couple of weeks! I cannot wait to read it all, although I suspect I will probably loose my Sundays as well.

    “You guys and gals know I put out decent products. You know they’re something that you wouldn’t be ashamed of promoting (many other products out there fall in that category I’m sorry to say), and you know I always try to give good support.

    I wondered if anybody was watching this launch of “Auction Acrobat” on the Warrior Forum, It starts off with enthusiastic buyers and slowly you can see the doubt set in. I see my co-worker John Wilkes even got a mention in for “Smartdd” bless him. He has got a bee in his bonnet about it been “totally, hands off, automatic”.

      Hi Gareth,

      I didn’t know about that thread, thanks for that.

      I think it’s worth me pointing out here that SmartDD v3 (I believe) will do everything that Disc Mojo and Auction Acrobat does, plus a lot more. I say I believe it will because I haven’t bought either of the other products.

      From what I can tell that DM and AA do, if you want to sell Kunaki based products either via eBay, your blog, other site or wherever, then SmartDD v3 is the product to use.

      I think I’ve also mentioned on here that v3 also does free sign ups and integrates with almost any autoresponder (service or self-hosted). And one time offers too. Oh and we’ve thrown in a web store, plus 3 web templates you can use with your store, sales page, download page etc.

      And apart from digital downloads and Kunaki based products, you can also use it with any other physical products too. Via eBay if you like.

      With the templating system we’ve added, it’s very VERY flexible.

      The downside is, it’s a little more complicated than the original version of SmartDD we released nearly 2 years ago, but that’s only because we’ve responded to requests for change.

      Oh and as soon as we’ve released v3, we’ll (finally!) add ClickBank support in a minor release.

      You know what? I think in many respects SmartDD v3 is also better than RAPS now.

      When we add subscriptions and then later on memberships in v4, it will be an extremely strong all round product.

      Hmm… You could sell a one month trial membership on eBay and upsell to lifetime membership via a One Time Offer.

    Frank,

    YOU HAD ME AT HELLO!!

    Where is SmartDD V3? You’ve already trained us to respond to the pitch – now let’s putt (pitch and putt – groan!) our money where your mouth is. Launch the payment button, please – people are queueing up!

    Please don’t keep telling us about the extra facilities it has. That’s like showing a starving man food and I know you’re not that cruel.

    As to your leaked text, it’s done everything I’ve come to expect of you so well done on that.

    Using the key learning points from tomorrow, you’ll be finding out who will be one of your customers and who will be just a freebie seeker almost straight away.

    That, on its own, can be worth a fortune to anyone who pays attention. If what you’re promoting goes even halfway towards doing ‘what it says on the tin’ it will have the power to change lives radically.

    I wonder how many people are actually ready for that?

    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Amin,

      Pitch and putt – ah all those wasted hours doing something I knew I was never going to be very good at. ;)

      I’m really sorry about SmartDD v3 taking so long. We were going to release Kunaki support via v2.1 (which I still have on my hard drive) and Paul said “It shouldn’t take too long to do all the stuff for v3, why don’t we wait until that’s done?”

      Never again.

      We kept adding stuff and changing things to make it a little more flexible and a little more easier to use based on what people were asking for. The outcome is a product that’s in layers. You can ignore most of things it can do and just focus on a few to get you up and running quickly, like the “create products, add to item, tweak email and sell”, and then use the more advanced stuff as you get to grips with it.

      Plus we found a few bugs along the way which we think we’ve squished in our own testing, so I hope we’ll be releasing a very stable product. Time will tell when we release it into the wild which we’re very VERY close to doing. In fact I’m waiting for Paul to get back from holiday on Thursday and then we’ll start the wind up to it.

      Not long now.

      -Frank
