Shot Down In Flames
"I wouldn't follow that guy even if he was my friend."
That's what Rockit (my life partner and muse) said when I showed her a site I was looking at.
I say looking at, but to be more accurate, I was shredding it in my usual 'remove a splinter with a chainsaw' style.
To say it was bad is far too charitable a rating.
It flat-out sucked like a black hole.
The guy was asking for a critique because he'd spent $1k on ads, but got less than stellar results. (meaning he made no money and got only a handful of fresh leads)
Unlike every fake friend and wannabe goo-rue on Flakebook, I won't praise what won't sell.
Because it doesn't matter how much time it took, or if you followed all the Best Practices! these folks who should keep their pie-holes slammed shut spew all over so-shill media... if it don't sell anything, it's crap.
And believe me, this site couldn't sell a dollar on Wall St. for 95 cents.
I'm a copy guy. Not design, or colors or graphics. Or any of the other dozen things falling under the heading Stuff To Make Your Site Look Good.
But even I - a guy who's fashion idol would be closer to Fonzie than anyone you'd find on the cover of GQ - could see these pages were awful.
How bad could they be?
I'm glad you asked.
Try pics of boring family functions taking up half the page. And that's one with a pic. Another had the same size area sporting a dull gray background with white text and lousy formatting.
Don't even get me started on the copy. I swear it was so boring it sounded like he swiped it from the brochure of an old folks home. Yikes.
I've learned a metric crap-ton of marketing over the last dozen years or so. It comes with the territory. No matter your specialty, you'll pick up jewels of good info all over the place - if you keep your eyes and ears open.
But what's really good is when you find a gold nugget so big it answers dozens of questions and fits it all together. It's like a huge jigsaw puzzle in your mind suddenly puts itself together and you see the picture clearly for the first time.
That's the kind of nugget The Mass Traffic Blueprint is.
If you haven't downloaded it yet, what the heck are you waiting for?
If you have, why haven't you plugged into the Crash Course yet?
Things could be tight in the ol' revenue department. I get it. But if there's one thing I see crystal clear with all the shenanigans going on right now, it's the absolute necessity of having a way to earn a living not dependent on the whims of others. At least as much as possible.
You've already taken the first step towards making it a reality.
Don't let up on the pedal now.
As I like to say... "When in doubt, go balls out!"
This philosophy has served me well. Maybe it'll do the same for you.You can download the blueprint and get started on the crash course here
<<< UPDATE >>>
For a limited time, The Traffic Power System is FREE. All you have to do is create your free account and login. This course sold for $1497, and I don't know how long it'll be available at no cost. If you think you'll ever need traffic to your offers, it would be a good idea to jump on this now - before it's too late.
