Who This Course Is For
06:58

I am what you might call obsessive when it comes to marketing and sales. At 13 I was creating advertisements for local businesses, and by 15 consulting on web design. A University degree, 100s of marketing and sales books, and about a dozen jobs or businesses later I now help business owners and freelancers improve their website conversion rates by creating a compelling marketing story, effective sales writing and design optimization.

My background includes a Degree in Psychology, Certification in NLP and awards for Top Internet Presence and Best Advertising in Canada.

+ 5 Common (and Costly!) Landing Page Mistakes
8 lectures 21:55

In this lesson you'll learn the first of five costly mistakes commonly made on landing pages and websites. You can't fault anyone for Mistake #1, it is only natural and stems from how people are wired to behave. Regardless of what's natural, if you're making this mistake, I can guarantee you're losing 50% or more of potential customers who visit your page.

Mistake #1
02:57

In this lesson we will look at different examples of landing pages. Some are excellent, while others are downright terrible. We will discuss the merits of the great pages and pick apart the bad ones. Watch this lesson to ensure you don't make the same mistakes these big companies did.

Examples of Good and Bad Landing Pages (Part 1)
04:59

Mistake #2 happens with the best of intentions, and from following a lot of the weak business advice out there. Unfortunately these excuses won't improve your conversion rate or get back the visitors you're losing by making this mistake.


Mistake #2
02:02

There comes a time in your business growth cycle when you need to invest in advertising in order to acquire new customers and increase your profits. Before you spend a dime on lead generation or new traffic you must be sure you aren't making Mistake #3.

Preview 03:29

We've been there before. Going for the kiss before it's time can be extremely embarrassing. Making Mistake #4 can be extremely costly.

This isn't a common problem, but occasionally students have trouble with videos buffering due to file size. If you're on a slower connection, or experience this problem, just change the video quality to 360p instead of 720p. See the screenshot.

Wouldn't it be great if you knew exactly what your potential customers were thinking? Then you could design your sales process and marketing to engage them and have the highest possible return on investment. Using the idea of a customer avatar, and understanding why your customer buys, will allow you to do just this.

Features versus Benefits

Most companies know what a feature is and when it comes to their marketing they focus almost exclusively on their features. Successful companies understand that benefits are what really sell products and design their marketing to promote the real benefits of using their product or service.

For Example:

Feature: This photocopier can copy 45 sheets per minute and takes just 4 seconds to warm up.

Benefit: Your office will save 24 human hours per week, or $24,950 per year.

Feature: Our e-book is 225 pages long and took 1 year to research.

Benefit: Our e-book is complete so you can begin to lose weight immediately without spending more time or money on additional research or learning.

Feature: The BMW’s convertible roof can lower in 3 seconds while driving at 30 km/hr.

Benefit: Girls will think you’re cool and in just 3 seconds you can lower the roof so they can hop in.

Features vs Benefits
03:46

In this lesson you'll learn one technique to significantly improve your writing quality and reader engagement. This same technique will help you eliminate writers block and produce a lot more work in less time.
