OFFER DEVELOPMENT (not product development)
What is your Niche?

  • Don’t Try to be All Things to All People
  • Think “MICRO” Niche
  • The More Specific you can be, the easier and faster you can get it to be

Hard Topic vs Soft Topic

  • Make sure it’s a Hard Topic rather than a Soft Topic – example of a soft topic “how to Knit, how to lose weight, how to make money”.
  • A hard topic “how to lose weight in 23 minutes, 6 min abs, how to cross stitch for profit”   (Time or Money)
  • How to play the piano in 5 minutes a day
  • How I was able to overcome this sickness in only 3 days.

Offer Research

  • (pulls offers from 30+ CPA Offers) * free

Creating your “System Outline”

What is the END goal for your system?

  • (Help people get to the top of Google Results)

Can you break it down into 7 Steps? 12 Steps? 15 Steps?

  • Table of Contents (Barnes & Noble/Amazon)
  • Modules or Chapters
  • Module #1 is this
  • Module #2 is this.. etc

Make sure steps are answers to what people are already asking

  • Research Forums to find out what people are complaining about/asking about – make sure these are in your 7 steps

Can you call these steps “Secrets” ?

  • Secrets will convert higher, but if you don’t have secrets, call them “Strategies”. If you can’t justify them as a secret, don’t use the word secrets.

Write a headline for each “Secret”

  • i.e. Step #1 – Picking the right types of piping.
  • The secrets of how to pick the right piping that doesn’t blow up in your face

“Hey, before I get to the training on this call, I wanna tell you that I got a very important secret – I’ve got 7 secrets to share, but I actually figured out, just recently, an 8th secret, which is completely different and nobody else knows about, in fact I just got it on just in time to share it on this cd, but I’m not going to be able to share it until the end, so make sure you stay on for the entire thing so I can share with you the 8th secret (or 13th secret.. etc)”
