Provoking Customer Response

Hi everyone,

This weekend Cinnamon and I were asked to speak at an event in Monterey – so we took the opportunity to also celebrate our 20th Annivesary! So I shot this week’s video on the balcany – and I focused on answering the question,

“do you have a challenge getting people to respond to your marketing messages?”

Watch the video on Youtube at this link:

Comment Contest: As an example of one response-provoking method – I’m adding a fun comment contest to this post. Simply answer the question,

“I could provoke customers to engage with my products by doing _____________.”

Give me an idea or two, (and if you can’t think of any – that’s okay too – just tell me what you think about this topic). In 3 days, (September 2nd), I’ll pick a winner at random and they’ll receive 3 of my best-selling books…

How To Start Your Freedom Business While Avoiding Assumed Requirements

Screen Shot 2014-09-22 at 3.48.52 PM

Hi everybody,

In this week’s video I explain what “assumed requirements” are – and how to overcome them so you can start your freedom (online) business today!

Plus – I’ve got the full transcript saved as a little PDF booklet file for ya – almost like a little booklet. I hope you enjoy it. But please note – it’s a transcript of the video so it’s not necessarily the smoothest of writing.


Ps. I’d love to hear your perspective – tell me what you think – are you battling against any assumed requirements that are stopping you from starting or growing your online business?

Pps. I’d be super grateful if you’d pin the booklet or the video to Pinterest! Thanks in advance!
