Description

If you've ever thought about creating a product or selling your expertise online, but just don't know where to begin OR are looking to speed up the process - THIS IS YOUR COURSE!


THE STORY

I was laying in bed figuring out how much I was going to make as a Computer Engineer after graduation. Plugging the number away in my head, trying to do the math and figure out how much I’d make per hour. I assumed I’d be making about seventy thousand dollars per year. If I was working forty hour weeks, then I was probably going to be making about thirty-five dollars an hour. 


I then thought back on a “how to” book I’d purchased the day before. It was a lot for a college student, but worth it! I paid thirty-seven dollars for the book, and it was so awesome to me. The guy who wrote the book had come out publicly on an affiliate platform (ClickBank) and shown that he sold, on average, two hundred copies of that book per day. Two hundred copies! 


I started doing the math, and at thirty-seven dollars per book, he was making about seven thousand dollars per day! Or $2,701,000 per year! To make that much money, I always believed you had to do something illegal for a living. It felt like a ‘dirty’ secret to riches, and he was just giving it away. 


But the craziest part is he only spent a few days writing the book, and once he was done—he NEVER had to write it again. The book did the rest for him, teaching on autopilot! He just made it once and then got paid for it over and over again! That’s when I realized I didn’t want to sell my knowledge by the hour like all my classmates we're doing... I wanted to sell like this author!

And that’s what I teach you to do... 


BEST PART? You can sell your expertise like an "expert" and earn more in a day than most do in a week!

---------------------------------------

About the Topic

---------------------------------------


Have you ever thought about creating your own product but have been put off by the process as there are so many components.

Step 1: Product Concept


This consists of basic sketches around your product idea. So ask yourself -what is your product and how is your product going to be used?

Step 2: Research
It is vital to research the current markets and demands. So you need to find out what is already on the market what is similar to your product idea? If there is a similar product, how is yours going to be better?

Step 3: Product design development
Using the information you have gathered from your research you can now develop your product designs. When you are designing your product need to answer the following questions:

– What is the function of my product?

– Will my product be able to withstand use?

– Will the product be reliable?

– Can the product be produced at a cost effective price?

– Will the manufacturing process be easy to produce the final product? Does it contain multiple parts?

– Will the process be cost effective? Can you still make profit after manufacturing your product?

– Do you want your product to be of a high quality?

– Can your product be maintained or will it break after one use?

– Which material(s) will your product be made from? This will depend on the use and the forces your product is expected to withstand.

Step 4: Research and development of the final design
This is the final tweaks to your drawings with dimensions and material selection so when you progress to step 5 you have a detailed drawing to work from.

Step 5: CAD(any software)
Using 3D modelling software (CAD – computer aided design) you will get a computerised 3D model of your final product design. These designs will often highlight problem areas where the theoretical stresses and strains on the product will be shown. If there are problems now is a good time to address the design faults and revisit step 4.

Step 6: CAM
A prototype of your design will be created using computer aided engineering systems. A physical representation of your design is great for testing and developing.

Step 7: Prototype Testing
This is the point where you may have to go back to the drawing board when you test your prototype. Be critical – will your product function properly? If your product isn’t right, go back to Step 3 and re-develop your designs.

Step 8: Manufacturing
Once you are happy with your product prototype you can then manufacture your product! Manufacturing costs depend on complexity of your product, if there are multiple components, material selection, low batch product or high batch numbers. These factors need to be considered to ensure you will make a healthy profit on your end product.

Step 9: Assembly
The assembly of your product is vital – if you use a glue that will degenerate quickly you will not sell many products. It is recommended that your product should have the minimum number of joins; this will not only spend up manufacture and reduce manufacturing costs it also makes assembly of your product quicker. So the overall costs of your product will be considerably less than a complex product.

Step 10: Feedback and testing
Test your final product with family, friends and focus groups. Again it is important to be critical of your product and listen to the feedback you get back from other people. This will help with any further product development.

Step 11: Product development

If your testing and feedback have highlight areas that need improvement, you will need to revisit your product development – most manufacturing companies would have flagged up obvious issues before you get to this stage so at this point you are just tweaking or you might be skipping straight to Step 12.

Step 12: Final Product
You now have your final product so you need to focus on your marketing campaign and how you are going to sell your product. Remember, the more you sell, the larger the manufacturing batches, the lower the cost of manufacture = more profits!

Udemy asks for a review a little too quick for my taste, so if you don't feel it's 5-stars when they ask, JUST HOLD OUT and watch the entire course.

I try to pack as much juicy info up-front as I can, but it's just not possible to do it 100% of the time. I have A LOT of information and things for you to do, so watch the entire course and then leave a review once you have seen the 'big picture' I'm laying out for you.

The way you inflect your voice and tone can change the meaning of things. To demonstrate what you can do with your voice, I’m going to take one sentence, which has eight words in it, and make those eight words mean eight different things.

1) I did not say he stole the money. (Simple fact statement.)

2) I did not say that he stole the money. (Implies that it was someone else who said it.)

3) I DID NOT say he stole the money. (This is vigorous denial that you said it.)

4) I did not SAAAYY he stole the money. (Hints that you may have implied it but you didn’t say it.)

5) I did not say HE stole the money. (Implies that someone other than the accused stole the money.)

6) I did not say he STOLE the money. (You hint he might have borrowed it.)

7) I did not say he stole THE money. (He might have stolen some money but not THE money.)

8) I did not say he stole the MONEY. (suggests that he might have stolen something but certainly not the money.)

***These are the same words, but with an educated change in your voice inflection, you can change the meaning.

It's easy to create extras for your product - I personally call it homework in the Udemy setting. All you need to do, is build off other successful exercises/guides in your niche and re-brand + rewrite it to make it your own.

This is the very beginning of your funnel. Here is where you ask your visitor to exchange their email address in return for a digital asset (PDF, video, ebook, etc.).

Squeeze Page

Having your TYP page setup correctly virtually guarantees that 100% of your subscribers that opt-in to your list, will be seeing the sales page. This simple TYP page will reset the "freebie mindset" and transition a user into another offer, this time PAID.

TYP Page

The Front-End is where you ask your subscribers to finally pull out their credit card in exchange for a Tripwire (splinter of your core product), SLO (your full core product) or a Free + Shipping. Any of these variations of a Front-End accomplish the same goal, get the credit card.

A Value Ladder is one of the MOST IMPORTANT parts to building a successful business, online and off. Whenever I have a client come to me for coaching and my team and I help them build out their business, the first thing we approach is implementing a Value Ladder. If our coaching student doesn't have a Value Ladder, it's one of the quickest ways to double or even triple a business (seemingly overnight).

In this lecture, we're going to review a few general ideas about The Value Ladder, so you can understand how it fits into your business personally.

Hi, my name is Zach Miller...

Before we dive on in, I want to introduce myself and let you know what this course is (and is not).

This course is NOT about getting more traffic to your website—yet the secrets I’m about to share with you will help you get exponentially MORE traffic than ever before.

This course is NOT about increasing conversions—yet these secrets will increase your conversions MORE than any headline tweak or split-test you could ever hope to make.

If you are currently struggling with getting traffic or converting that traffic once it arrives, you may think you’ve got a traffic or conversion problem. In my experience, after working with thousands of businesses over the last decade, I have found that is rarely the case. Low traffic and weak conversion numbers are but symptoms of a much greater problem; a problem that is a little harder to see (that’s the bad news), but is a lot easier to fix (that’s the good news).

Get a copy of my video course, Sales Funnel Secrets and get the same training my Inner Circle students paid $25,000 to learn: www.Zach-Miller.com/udemy

---

Once this course is available to millions of people, I know it is going to be much harder for me to accommodate everyone who wants more personalized help. So I created something special just for the readers who are here now. I have opened up space in our Inner Circle program so that I can personally look at your funnels, spend an hour with you on the phone, and then have my team work with you for a full year to implement the changes you need to make. Doesn’t that sound amazing?

If you would be interested in being part of my Inner Circle, then I want to invite you to apply with me personally. You can apply here: www.Zach-Miller.com/inner-circle

After you apply, someone on my team will give you a call and explain the Inner Circle program to see if it is a good fit. If it is, then we’ll actually be talking together in less than a week from right now.

And with that... I will end this message.

I want to thank you so much for joining me here, and I wish you all the success you can dream of...
