Hello. It's Kit Elliott here, and what a great weekend! It's time to get in gear and make this another great week for online profits. After checking my comments over the weekend, I noticed one comment that I've seen over and over again.
“Can You Tell Me How to Market This?”
That's what the next three months of Mondays are for: Marketing Mindset Mondays! How to get in the marketing mindset. Many people think simply by advertising or placing links – that's marketing. That may work for some, but you end up working harder and when you get in the marketing mindset – it's all about working smarter.
The next system – I'm going back four years when I created this simple system for making money. Here's how it works:
The first step is to setup a voicemail – there are a ton of voicemail systems out there right now and I use a company called Eagle Telecommunications. For $90 per year – I could get a simple greeting phone number. Four years later – they have very sophisticated systems out there.
Step 2: Setup Your Pitch. This works for any product, any niche. (even if it's not yours). You would talk about the benefits of the product and how they can get a copy for $x amount. These new systems will let you press 1 to enter the order or press 2 to leave a message.
Step 3: Now the system will let you press 1 to speak to a live operator or press 2 to enter your credit card (which you will transcribe later or have someone transcribe and enter the order). There are many order taking services, and while I don't believe ours is the cheapest – we use Teledirect.com. If you know one that is super cheap and super reliable – please let us know. We went super cheap once before, and our phone numbers were constantly down and not answering after five o'clock. So we switched to a service that cost a little more but was much more reliable!
Step 4: Send postcards that advertise your product and your new phone number. That's right! Whatever your product or service is – you would send a postcard to your niche's list with the number of your greeting from above. You can also advertise this in your niche's magazines. People love hearing a voice on the other end, and when they get a live operator – even better.
So let's take these 4 steps and give you an example. The product is how to buy houses for pennies on the dollar. Right now, I would stay clear of this pitch because of a certain FTC swoop last week regarding the same product. But let's apply this marketing method to this product.
Step 1: You would record a greeting about the benefits, the testimonials, and how you can pick up your copy for $57. Press 1 to speak to a live operator. (you can price this from $47 to $77) The system will let you program a number to forward to when you press 1.
Step 2: Of course – you need to setup an account with Teledirect, PatLive, or any other live operator business.
Step 3: And then – design a postcard (using Elance.com or RentaCoder.com) and send it to a list in the real estate market. Right now – you can visit many list brokers and find a perfect match.
Let's call this system: Voice Mail Profits!
How can you use this same system and skyrocket your conversions?
Easy – put your own spin on it.
Press 1 if you would like to receive a 30 day try before you buy. All you do is pay the shipping and handling – you try it out for 30 days – if you don't like it – return it for a full refund. If you do like it, keep it – and you'll pay $47 – $77.
If the product is great – add a monthly subscription to this. Break up the $497 into payments.
