This offer available for discussion to first 3 people who say YES! (sent to over 3,000 others)

 

I’ve got a writing itch that feels like 2008 all over again and I want to write!
 
If I look back at 2008, that is when things REALLY took off for me and the companies I worked with. Fear was everywhere, panic, and crazy ideas.
 
But if managed CORRECTLY the disasters of today could mean massive GROWTH for tomorrow!
 
I truly saw that play out in 2008 and I’m getting the same feeling now.
 
To you I ask this…Can I write for you?
 
Here are the strings:
 
– You have a product you’re buying media for (or CAN buy media for)
– You need/want new creatives to match market tone, and get people taking action.

That’s IT!

P.P.S. Sorry but I do reserve the right to say no to a project. Burned too many times to not say no when I
get the feeling. But chances are, if you’re reading THIS far…I might not say no!
Marketing Tip: Speed = Money! Here’s how to do it well…

Marketing Tip: Speed = Money! Here’s how to do it well…

Speed…

Anytime I think of the word speed the scene from ‘Cars’ comes to mind when Lighting McQueen is in this trailer hyping himself up before the big race…yes you can blame my kids lol.

But what ALSO comes to mind is speed in marketing.

So the question becomes how fast are you?

Can you change out pages within a day or two in order to try to improve conversions?

How quickly can you write an email funnel or TWO? 3 days or 15?

If a strategy you work hard to build turns out to be a flop, are you able to pivot to a new strategy using existing assets or build NEW assets? 1 week…3?

What I’m getting at is the difference between success and struggle.

“If you’re able to make changes quickly, then you’ll stay ahead of the curve in your OWN business cycle.”

If it takes you 4 weeks to change strategies how much time has been lost making revenue due to a delay in copy, or a new page not coming together quickly, or something like actually TRADING gets in the way?

Copy delay, page issues, life…those are all NORMAL things that slow down the success of your marketing.

So the question you have to ask yourself is this…

See what I’ve seen a LOT of recently is the inability to get ahead of the curve after getting SO far behind…then the strategy they banked so much time, effort, and capital into, turns out to be a flop simply because the market has changed.

Then it’s either a quick business death…or a slow painful one.

Either way, it can happen to you.

So…

Are you fast enough?

If yes, AWESOME! Keep it up and you’ll keep driving revenues forward!

If no, why?

You KNOW that you need to, so why aren’t you? Not enough time? Think you can’t do it? Not your area of expertise?

I totally understand.

Marketing Tip: Maximize Your Inbox! (⬆️ Money ⬆️ Free Time)

Marketing Tip: Maximize Your Inbox! (⬆️ Money ⬆️ Free Time)

Raise your hand if you’re on like 50 or more email lists…

 

Right…so was I until about 9 months ago.

That’s when I cut the ‘fat’ from my inbox and my writing, my funnels, and my REVENUES exploded!!

Before you say ‘ok Brad I’ll get off a couple of email lists, adios!” Please hear me out…

Because if you want to TRULY make more money and save time, you need to follow my SIMPLE plan.

Cool?

Ok, so for me, and you, and probably everyone else, you’re on those lists to actually learn something. See what others are doing, and testing it on your audience.

You saw an ad at some point that you said ‘oh that looks cool’ and clicked. And you thought that you might be able to glean some new methods to apply to your own business!

Years ago it was an AWESOME source of ideas of how to improve!

But today…not so much.

It really started when I realized I was spending about a hour or more a day, just DELETING emails that were either old, or from people I don’t follow anymore, etc etc.

Such a time suck!

But I didn’t opt out of everything at once, I had to have a plan that actually allowed me to still get premium content that challenged me, and improved my revenues.

Here’s the PLAN I executed a while back:

This is step one in your journey to make more money, save a TON of time, and improve your business.

When you’re watching a horse race, do you watch the horses at the front or the back?

THE FRONT!! That’s right!

Same is true with your inbox.

If you know I’m working with someone, and that person is making a TON of money…READ THEIR EMAILS! We’re doing something right!

We’ve got the messaging, timing, content, sales pages, squeeze pages, ads, etc etc that ARE WORKING!

And if you know someone who’s struggling, and their content isn’t great, and the sales pages aren’t compelling…CUT IT! Trust me you won’t miss it.

The ‘WIN’ here is two part:

First, you’re putting QUALITY INTO YOUR MIND and cutting crap out. If you read books by bad writers, will your writing improve…or get worse? You get it.

Second, by cutting junk you’ll free up a TON of time. Because you don’t always ‘delete’ the email right away. You might linger and see if what you’re expecting has improved…and when it hasn’t…you delete. But you’ve wasted 5 minutes.

See??

Never steal. Never. You’ll get caught and you’ll look like a fool.

Trust me. I’ve been doing this for 11 years (HOLY COW REALLY!?!?) and when someone steals they get busted. Never steal.

You analyze and adapt.

You HAVE to do this simply because YOU ARE UNIQUE!!

Just because Fernando and Palm Beach Letter are launching a huge webinar with a celebrity, doesn’t mean it’ll work for you.

Jeff and Jason with RagingBull sharing their winning trades is KILLING it for them…but might not work for you.

HOWEVER…they’re doing SOMETHING right, so analyze what they’re doing and how it COULD be adapted to YOU.

It takes a lot of time and introspective analysis to crack the code of why something is working for someone else, and how that code could be applied to the assets that YOU have.

And it’s often more than what you would classify as ‘assets’ like ebooks, videos, products, etc etc.

Often you’re not even aware of the intangible assets that you have! Sometimes you need a third party to clarify what makes you…YOU. Those are the assets you need to leverage and apply to the parts of the decoded success plan that you get by following the quality people.

Make sense?

Little confused?

Probably. But that’s ok.

If you ask me ANYTHING about a straddle option trade I’d be drooling on myself trying to wrap my brain around it!!

HOPEFULLY you’re not overwhelmed with step two as that’s the hard one. But the idea is that you’ve cut out so much junk from your inbox you’re only reading Pulitzer Prize winners.

So your inbox will only leave you the golden nuggets to analyze and ADAPT.

Then start SMALL.

Start with what you can do.

If it’s a headline style/font, then try it.

If it’s the timing on the emails…adjust yourself.

Is it messaging that’s more positive? Try it.

But keep a close eye to make sure that your baseline numbers do not DIP BECAUSE OF YOUR TESTING!

Numbers should be improving with these tests, that’s why it’s small, and manageable.

If you’re doing it on your own, it’s gotta be small.

But if you’ve got a dedicated person/team (like ME!) working with you, you can do a LOT more and cut right to what SHOULD really be working for you.

Because if you’re working with someone who’s focused on marketing, then success should come faster simply because that person/team can analyze YOU and apply the things that SHOULD work based on their own testing…vs you testing a bunch of stuff based on your gut.

I’ve got 2 openings for consulting clients for 2019…contact me TODAY for guarantees and costs.

No obligation, FREE, one hour phone consult.

STOP! Don’t Spend Another Ad Dollar Till You Read This

STOP! Don’t Spend Another Ad Dollar Till You Read This

Let me tell you something AWESOME…

You are literally living in the greatest time to sell anything EVER!
You can reach customers all over the globe…on dozens of platforms…with MILLIONS of highly targeted customers just wanting to buy!

But you’re struggling…

WHY?!

You’re struggling because you don’t know your data! Right at your fingertips you have the ability to NEVER guess if you’re ads are working or how many products your customers are buying, or which pages are working the best… however you do not know what your EPL, EPC, or KPI’s are and you’re spending more money than you’re making.

And you’re blaming the ad sources instead of examining your own processes and tracking because you can’t believe that anyone who laid eyes on your product isn’t just BUYING IT as soon as they land on your page!

Well let me tell you as gently as I can what needs to happen:

LOSE THE EGO!

The truth is you do NOT need to struggle with your ad buys. It’s not EASY,  but it’s manageable and truly the ONLY way you can grow your businesses.

I’m here to tell you that:

I wrote this whole post after a call recently and the only real solution, if you want to do it yourself is this:

Tracking 101 by Justin Brooke

This is NOT an affiliate link…this is a link to what could be the start of your REAL growth!

I know Justin and his team personally, and can attest to their awesomeness ten times out of ten. Justin knows his stuff and he’s really the only person I trust to teach ANYONE how to track ads and scale ad buys.

So if you want to be a high level DYI ad buyer, it starts with TRACKING and it starts with Justin!

Now, if you want someone to do it FOR you, that’s another story.

If you need PERSONALIZED help with someone who’s done it DOZENS of times…email me and let’s chat: brad@bradstafford.com

Cheers,

Brad

Here’s what I learned in Jamaica’s high level mastermind event

I went to Jamaica, did zero drugs, and STILL had my mind blown! 

This month, I had a chance to rub shoulders with some epic ad buyers and marketers across a dozen different industries in Jamaica’s high level mastermind event.

So many awesome people with insights and expertise that I basically felt like I was drinking from a fire hose of gold! There were people who sell millions in high quality supplements via content marketing, a group of consultants for a TINY but billion dollar niche in Singapore, a 7 figure Amazon seller and her prodigy, the ‘Godfather’ (and his wife) of internet marketing, a 24 million dollar webinar architect, and more…trust me when I say it was a WOW event with just 12 of us.

When I sat down to write this, my outline was about 3 pages long…

Then I realized we live in a instant gratification world and shortened it down to 3 high level points that I think you should apply TODAY to your business and life!

During one break I had a chance to chat with ‘the Godfather’ who’s been around since the advent of the internet, yet continues to be relevant and growing!

We chatted about his early successes, and failures. After hearing some incredible stories I realized the only way this guy is here NOW, is that he’s never stopped pushing. There was a time when he was doing like 1000+ DAILY orders for a product he was selling, yet he never sat back and relaxed and said ‘welp this will work forever’…not at all.

He kept pushing new angles, testing new tools, meeting new people, and all the time staying at the leading edge of internet advertising. Sometimes close to the line 🙂 but never resting in what’s working now.

That was a recurring theme among everyone.

Pushing to see what new channels they could test, who was working on them, and what was working NOW…and how they could innovate WITHIN those channels.

You might think you’re using Facebook videos well…but probably not as well as some guys who are testing native ads on people who’ve not yet fully watched a video, and then chasing them with pixels all over the place with content…

Using the latest tools to best reach and convert customers.

It’s amazing.

As you know the tracking and measuring tools that are available for internet marketing make Orwells 1984 look like the Stone Age. With those tools for Google, Facebook, WordPress, YouTube, etc etc etc…you have DIFFERENT strategies for reaching and tracking your visitor with the GOAL of conversion.

For example, did you know that you can put out a video on Facebook to, let’s say, an audience of 1 million, then target the people who have watched 100%, 90%, 75%, etc etc of the video?! Creepy right…

Wrong…it’s now called good marketing!

And the BEST in the world are analyzing all the data to better convert people because someone who watched 80% of a video will convert into a customer differently than someone who’s watched 50%…and each SHOULD receive different messages because they’re at a different part of the conversion path.

Maybe they need more time on the video to really produce the buyer that they are looking for…or maybe they need NEW content…it’s all being tested at ALL TIMES!!

Think of internet marketing as a mad scientists laboratory where he’s made Frankenstein, taught rats how to speak, and yet isn’t done yet! Always something new testing, always being cross checked, it’s almost maddening…

Until you realize THIS IS SALES!

The last day we got some insights from the 24 million dollar webinar man…

Super interesting regarding data, how he managed to get 85,000 people to a live webinar on Cryptocurrencies, and how it was the biggest promotion in Agora history. Mind you Agora is a BILLION dollar company.

He shared ‘effort’ stats, how many emails were sent, the anatomy of the tech behind hosting 85k people, the affiliate results, updates from his team…and a LOT more.

What really stuck out to me, he was most proud of the process!!

Did he make great money….of COURSE…but that was just icing on the cake of doing something really innovative and FUN! Yes in all the stress of managing a beast of a promotion like that…HE WAS HAVING FUN!

And the more people I talked to there from multi million dollar ad buyers, webinar geniuses, etc etc, the less people talked about how much money THEY made vs what new they were working on.

It was really refreshing actually.

In a world in which it’s all about stuff, look at my fancy car, check out my latest instagram conquest, these people stood out for their character vs their bank account.

How’s that a take away from my trip…no idea.

Make of it what you will, it was my observation and impactful to me.

Hope the above was impactful and thought provoking for you as well!!

Talk soon,

Brad
