"This Changes Everything

This book is like having a treasure map that says dig here directly over a kings
ransom in gold.

I first studied with Richard Petrie back in 2007 and I can directly attribute the success
of my company, MedRecruit, to applying what I learned from him.

Since then we have been featured in the Deloitte Fast 50 for the past four consecutive
years, after entering in 2009 as the Fastest Growing Business Services Business and
the second fastest growing business in New Zealand, and last year I was named the
Ernst & Young young Entrepreneur of the Year.

Richard is one of the smartest marketers I have ever come across and this book is the
distillation of his very best work.

If you are sick of getting just average results in your business, or if youre getting
good results but want outstanding results, then you are reading the right book.

But dont just read; act. This book will not do the digging for you; you will have to
apply what you learn. But this book does give you the best marketing formula I have
ever seen to literally guarantee exceptional results.

Enjoy applying this and joining the 1% of business owners who are getting 99% of
the rewards.

If you actually do what is written in this book, you WILL crank up your businesses.

Let's say there is a huge treasure hidden on a small Island
somewhere at sea.

That means, there are millions of possible places to look but only
one holds the treasure.

Then, let's say I spend 10 years day and night searching every single
island until one day we hit the right one.

Then, suppose I write the correct directions on a piece of paper and
give it to you.

There it is.

What If Everything You Have Been Taught
About Selling Was Wrong?

This book wont just change your business it will change your life.

By taking all the ACTIONS outlined in this book you will
increase your income by at least 400% this year

That is a bold statement.
How can I be so confident?

Because everything else you have tried has been based on lies or misinformation.
Yes, everything you have been taught about selling and marketing is wrong.

Everything you see big companies do will not work for you. Your competitors are all
doing slight variations of the same wrong thing. If you follow the crowd you will end
up getting slaughtered because people are following people who are following people
who are lost.

Since I have helped hundreds of clients make millions of dollars, please refer to the
statement above and IF ACTED ON you WILL experience income growth faster and
easier than you ever imagined.

If you want the testimonial proof, go to but iathei than
waste space heie, let's get stiaight to the meat.

You are about to receive an education that few will ever get, even if they paid tens of
thousands of dollars to an expert.

Upon completion of this course, here are some things that will happen.

1. You will change the way you get your clients
2. You will change the way you communicate your value to your marketplace
3. You will change your current advertising and marketing and never go back to
the old traditional way
4. You will be able to charge higher prices than your competition
5. You will be able to generate more leads in a week than you attracted last year
6. You will be smarter than anyone else in your industry about what really
works. In fact you will chuckle when you see competitors waste money on
branding and any non-measurable image based advertising.
7. You will never go back to the old way of selling.

Bullet #1 The Dirty Little Secret
(Ad Agencies Dont Want You To Know)

I know fifty percent of my marketing works.
If only I knew which fifty percent I would be rich
PT Barnum

The advertising fat cats choked when my article was published in InBusiness
magazine. Why?
Because it exposed their dirty little secret.
Three agencies submitted counter articles the following month to the editor. Frankly I
dont mind because every word is true.
Why am I telling you this?
Because I am embarrassed by the marketing industry. Daily I see business owners
who have wasted thousands of dollars on ineffective advertising or marketing in
unsuitable publications because so called experts have agendas other than your
financial success.
Once you have inoculated yourself against the misinformation and industry B.S. by
reading the article below, we can get started.
Here is the article that caused the stink.
There is the dirty little secret in advertising
***Traditional advertising does not work anymore***
Yip, does-not-work, you read right!
OK here are the two main reasons why.
1. Congestion
Just 10 years ago the average consumer received 1,000 commercial messages per
Copyiight NT2 Ltu Speeu Naiketing 2u1S 11
Today the average consumer receives over 3,000 commercial messages per day.
Business spends three times more money on marketing today than it did 10 years
ago. Yet customer penetration has been reduced by 50%.
2. Inoculation to marketing messages
First, you must understand why some of what you have been taught about marketing
is wrong, or at least outdated and incomplete.

Most of the few great books on advertising were written more than a generation
ago by legends such as John Caples, David Ogilvy, Claude Hopkins and one or two
others. Most of their response-boosting secrets remain valid.

However their main teaching is that promoting big benefits are the key to success.
But heres the problem. These giants wrote this advice long ago when, compared with
today, prospects were under-marketed to. So, yes, back then, flat-out big promises
and words like FREE and NEW got people excited.
In the 1950s if your company was advertised on TV, you had instant credibility and
became a famous brand. The rich could get richer and life was simple.

But today, more often than not, super-sized claims instantly trigger rejection.
These days words like FREE and NEW and the big-claim style of advertising have
been so overused that they have become bright red flags that instantly scream to your
prospects, throw me away!

Just ask yourself, do you get overly excited when you encounter an email
trumpeting some fantastic claim to make you rich, change your life overnight or grow
body parts bigger than you ever dreamed?

Of course not.

You have heard such claims too many times. Your own exquisitely sensitive mental
spam filter rejects all such messages instantly.
90% Of Ads Are Losers
For the reasons above, when you go to the local newspaper, realise that 90% of the
ads you see are losers, meaning the advertiser do not cover their cost.
What makes matters worse is that advertisers do not even know how ineffective their
ad was because using traditional advertising methods they have no way to measure
how it performed.
Copyiight NT2 Ltu Speeu Naiketing 2u1S 12
As PT Barnham said once I know 50% of my marketing works if only I knew
which 50% Id be rich.
Marketing agencies and media reps will have told you you just need to get your name
out there or you need to build your brand first and build your image, and until
today you may have nodded your head like an obedient puppy.
Listen bucko, the only thing you NEED to do is to make a profit from each ad,
building an image is secondary to getting a sale or generating a lead.
Do I mean branding is not useful at all? No, it is useful when you have millions of
dollars to invest in building the image of your business in the mind of your buyers and
can afford to get no measurable results in the short term.
Running that strategy is for the big boys who pump millions into looking good instead
of getting an immediate dollar return.
Think of the great brands like Apple, Coke or Nike. How much do you think they have
to spend to look good?
As a business owner you are being conned into adopting branding strategies that
require VERY deep pockets to pull off successfully.
Why Advertising Agencies Dont Advertise
Advertising agencies are very keen to spend your money on advertising but consider
this, how many ads do you see in the paper or TV for advertising agencies?
Not many if any, right?
Dont you think thats a little strange that they dont eat their own dog food?
Well how do advertising agencies get their clients if not by advertising?
The answer may surprise you because it is predominantly cold calling, referrals,
schmoozing and responding to tenders.
Go to the Wellington yellow pages and see how many advertising agencies there are.
I count about 60 listed with phone numbers only.
How many ads do you think they use? Three. Thats right, three, and they are pretty
small. Check it out for yourself.
What do you think they know about advertising that they are not telling you? Like I
said, they have a dirty little secret.
Copyiight NT2 Ltu Speeu Naiketing 2u1S 1S
Most agency creatives are young, straight out of university and have never done a
days real selling in their life.
When they tell you they want to start the ad with a catchy jingle, ask yourself If I
walked into an office to sell face to face, would I sit down across from my prospect
and sing a catchy song? Unlikely!
When they tell you that you need plenty of white space so you must limit the word
count to no more than a hundred words in the ad, ask yourself If I sent a salesperson
out to a prospect would I tell her she had to stop what she was saying once she
reached a hundred words? Unlikely, you say what you need to say to get the job
***Traditional advertising does not work anymore***

What Is The Solution?

Good advertising is nothing more than salesmanship in print.
The best creators of money producing ads are almost always ex salespeople because
to sell using only paper and ink requires an outstanding understanding of buyer
psychology, NOT creativity!
You only get that experience by running thousands of tests with live customers under
battle conditions this is what sales people do everyday.
The job of your ad is to sell, not be clever or make people laugh but to get the
prospect to put their hand into their wallet and pull out their credit card.
Always make an offer that can be measured because there is a clear call to action.
For example, buy one get one free or bring in this coupon to redeem your special
As you can imagine, for most ad agencies tracking branding or creative work back to
sales is like shining a light on a vampire. Creative agencies prefer to hide in the

Brand Marketing vs. Measurable Marketing
There are two types of marketing the traditional get your name out there
Branding. This is almost impossible to measure and any results are based on
Copyiight NT2 Ltu Speeu Naiketing 2u1S 14
anecdotes and guesswork. And secondly the less promoted direct response marketing,
which is 100% measurable.
Why do you think they prefer branding a business or using image based ads?
Here are some reasons.
1) Branding by and large cannot be measured
2) Branding takes a lot of time and creative hours to produce
3) Branding makes you look pretty
4) Branding allows people to talk a lot, workshops, surveys, focus groups
5) Branding allows an ad agency or creative team to win industry awards without
the client needing to actually sell anything.
6) Because branding is creative and not measurable it allows creative people to
turn up to work unshaven wearing jeans

Bullet #2
Magic Numbers

You cannot control what you do not measure

Imagine you are driving to an important meeting 5 minutes early.

Then all of a sudden the car starts to splutter. You coast to the side of the road as the
car loses power.

Confused you call a mechanic to come and fix your car.

Do you know why the car lost power? The mechanic asks.

No idea you respond.

Good news sir, he says. You are just out of petrol I can give you enough to get to
a petrol pump.

Now 10 minutes late for your big meeting you detour your journey at speed towards a
petrol station when a police car pulls you over.

Do you know how fast you were going? The officer asks.

No idea you respond.

Well you were going 75 in a 50kph zone. That will be a $200 fine and 100 demerit
points on your license, and I see you already have 200 demerit points so that will
probably cost you your license too.

Now you are 30 minutes late for the big meeting with a big fine and a big date in

You drive off slowly this time to fill the tank and the car starts to splutter again! As
you call the mechanic again you know petrol cannot be the problem.

The mechanic arrives and immediately asks 'Do you know why the car stopped this

No idea you respond.

Copyiight NT2 Ltu Speeu Naiketing 2u1S 16
'The car is overheating because you dont have enough oil or water in the engine.
Didnt the indicators tell you the car was getting hot? He enquires as if you are

What indicators? you respond.

All Your Problems Come Down To ONE Thing

You are not stupid. It is just that your car does NOT have any indicators.

No speedometer, no temperature gauge, no fuel gauge. No feedback of the key
performance indicators of your car.

No indicators means no warning signals as you run out of petrol. No indicators mean
no warning that the car was over heating. No indicators mean you have no idea of
you speed and so you drive too fast.

You have now missed your big meeting and a potentially huge sale but that is just the
start of your problems.

You decide to sell this car with no indicators. But all prospective buyers want to know
is How many kilometers does the car have on the clock?

No idea you respond.
Vital Feedback

Now lets imagine you install a dashboard that showed your speed, petrol levels,
engine temperature and mileage.

Instantly the car has become a safe asset and does not need to be sold.

Of course this is just a story to exaggerate my point. No-one would have a car with no
indicators. That is just silly.

But remember your sales and marketing is also a vehicle that drives revenue and
profits. This is also an area that MUST be measured and tracked meticulously.

...Because you cannot control what you cannot measure.

A business without sales and marketing indicators can run into trouble as quickly as a
car without a dashboard of indicators.

If I were to ask you what your current performance indicators were telling you this
week and your answer is 'No idea' then we both know why you are having so many

The only time I really like math is when I am counting my money.

But in 10 years of working with clients, I get to see that the rich ones know and play
the numbers like a sport.

Like picking winners at the track, many marketing questions I get asked cannot be
answered without knowing the historical form. For example: My newspaper ad
works pretty good. The media rep is urging me to increase from quarter page to half
page. Should I?

My questions have to do with what pretty good really is.

1. What is the cost per lead (CPL) from the ad? (Total cost divided by the number of
leads your ad generated)

This is the money spent to get the prospect to raise his/her hand. So if you spend $100
a month and get 10 people call you or go to your website, then your CPL is $10 from
that media.

2. What is the cost per sale (CPS) from the ad? (Total cost divided by the number of
clients your marketing exercise generated)

This is a truly critical number that tells you the cost of acquiring each new customer.

3. What is the lifetime customer value (LCV) from the ad?

This allows you to measure the total value of each new client you acquire. This
number also helps you get real about the cost of losing each client and helps you
determine what you are willing to invest to acquire and keep them.

4. How do these values compare with other CPL, CPS and LCV from the other means
you use to get customers?

Thats just the beginning, but if you cant at least tell me those, I cannot tell you
whether to increase, decrease of eliminate your ad all together.

Once you know these numbers you then have a MA-CPS, a maximum allowable CPS
and you work at getting as many new ways of bringing in customers as possible to
perform at or below that number.

Hardly any business owner knows these numbers, although many think they do.
Just as a car with no indicators is trouble waiting to happen, so too is a business.

If you are buying ad media or investing in marketing without tracking the numbers on
a dashboard then you arent managing your business.

You are guessing your business.

Would you spend $5,000 on a sales person each month and never track his
Copyiight NT2 Ltu Speeu Naiketing 2u1S 18
Would you invest with an advisor who cannot tell you her current return on
her funds invested?
Why do people except anything less from their marketing investment? We
need to make any marketing we do from now on 100% measurable.

Then we can start to make objective decisions about how to spend money.
We can start to back the horses that keep winning rather than the one with
the catchy name.

You can be either a transaction marketer and sell something to a customer just
once or you can be a relationship marketer and sell them something over and
over again.

you've made the first sale. Notice how much more profitable Michaels

It Costs 500% More To Win A New Client
Than It Does To Re-Sell To An Existing Client

With that in mind, if you can make your first sale (aka front-end) profitable or
simply break-even, then you're in the perfect position to start taking on multiples
of new clients who will, if handled properly, result in an ongoing influx of
continual income that will make your bank account explode!
Until I learned this simple concept, I was always focused on just making a one-
time sale. Even today, with as many marketers that have written about lifetime
Copyiight NT2 Ltu Speeu Naiketing 2u1S 2u
value of a customer, and how much it's been put out there, most companies just
simply do not focus on re-selling or retaining the client.

The problem is that winning a new client is always more rewarding for the ego.
No-one claps when you re-sell an existing client.

Transactional marketers spend all their time chasing new customers!!! New
customers!!! New customers!!! While they neglect the ones they already have.

You need to realise that the most profitable lead is the one that has already given
you money!

Broaden What You Sell

Okay, lets say for example that you own a car dealership. To get an idea of how
much the average
customer will be
worth to you over a
lifetime of owning
your business, lets
take a look at the
following diagram.

Remember the
marketer will only
focus on the first
sale. But the
marketer sees the
first sale as the
starting point only.

Lets say we realise
there are three areas
we can generate
sales from

Holy smokes
$60,000! Do you
know what that means? It means you can afford to spend a lot of $$$ trying to
acquire a new customer for your business.

Shheeeesh with that level of profit waiting in the wings for you from each
customer, would you be willing to spend $1,000 to obtain a new client/customer?

I sure would.
Copyiight NT2 Ltu Speeu Naiketing 2u1S 21

If your competitor only makes $10,000 from each new client and you make
$60,000 because you have an organised back end that means you can completely
outspend him to win new clients.

While your competitor can only advertise in one publication, you can afford to be
everywhere. Your growth in clients and profit will be exponentially faster than
your competitors.

If your competitor is only profitable until they spend $1,000 on marketing, then
they have to stop well before you.

If you can spend $2,000, $3,000, $5,000 to win a new client, then that is an unfair
battle. Just how we like it.

Lets get back to the $1,000,000 burger.

When I ask how to sell a burger for a inflated price in seminars, the answers normally
go like this

1. Make it ORGANIC! (note to reader raise the QUALITY)
New price = Eight Bucks

2. Add fancy toppings and a bucket of fries.
OK, Twelve Bucks (Raising the amount of STUFF and Add-Ons know
anyone who does this?)

3. Ok what about selling in a swanky restaurant with White Linen napkins and
someone to scrape the crumbs off the table-cloth every five minutes while
Hayley Westerna sings the World Cup song?
Ninety Five Bucks? (Hmm, fancy Packaging of Exotic Locations for your
burger smart!)

I can go ON and ON and I have done so in the seminars. What usually happens is
that- somewhere between fifty and a hundred bucks all the marketing and

There Are Riches In Niches

20% of clients will typically provide 80% of your sales

20% of clients will typically produce 80% of your problems

20% of the buyers will typically spend 80% of the money

Most buyers have little impact on your results; a vital few could make you rich. The
best buyers in your market would ideally have the following

1. NEED: Have a problem
2. MONEY: They have money and prepared to spend it to solve the problem.
Ideally they are already spending money
3. DECISION MAKER: You can reach the decision maker economically
4. TIME: They are ready to take action now if presented with the right offer
5. SIZE: The niche is large enough to justify being a specialist provider
6. ADVANTAGE: Ideally you have a rare ability to solve the problem

Nice to have

1. *LIMITED SUPPLY: The service you can provide is not perceived to be
widely available
2. *PROACTIVELY LOOKING: The buyer is already searching for a solution

As soon as you have identified the best buyers, you need some bait.

The Irresistible Offer

"Make your offer so great that only
a lunatic would refuse to buy"
Claude Hopkins.

The Trojan Horse is a tale from the Trojan War about the strategy that the Greeks
used to enter the city of Troy.
For ten years the Greeks tried to storm the city of Troy unsuccessfully using
traditional warefare. The results were fruitless.
Then the Greeks constructed a huge wooden horse and hid a select force of men
inside. The Greeks pretended to sail away, and the Trojans pulled the horse into their
city as a victory trophy.
That night the Greek force crept out of the horse and opened the gates for the rest of
the Greek army, which had sailed back under cover of night. The Greeks entered and
destroyed the city of Troy, decisively ending the war.
A "Trojan Horse" has come to mean any trick or strategy that causes a target to invite
a foe into a securely protected bastion or space. This strategy works just as well in
marketing as it did in war.
As we know most people are told You need to get your name out there.
This is called branding and as we discussed in bullet #1 NOW is a good time to stop
playing the foolish game of shouting louder than the competition. You dont have the
budget of Nike or Apple so it is best not to try to play their game.
You need a marketing Tojan Horse.
Heres why. Just yesterday I dropped my daughter off to school in the city. The
school is near a very big Thorndon supermarket.
Ok, so I decide I will just get some soya milk for my shakes.
By the time I reach the checkout counter my grocery bill is over $70! All I wanted
was the soya milk. This happens all the time to me, and apparently happens to
everyone else too.
Copyiight NT2 Ltu Speeu Naiketing 2u1S 26
That is why the average spend for someone who comes into the supermarket for a
single item is over $27.
Whoa did you get that? $27
The supermarkets know this so they know that they can give milk away at cost price
because the milk only shoppers or the bread only shoppers cannot help themselves.
Just get em in the shop and their lack of dscipline will take over. Discounted items
like this are called a loss leader or we might see it as a Trojan Horse.
Heres another example, Tonys Tyre repairs do a free puncture repair.
The free pucture repair is a classic Trojan Horse because most of the repairs turn
into a sale of a new tyre. And not just one either.
The first sale is come in for a free puncture repair. That is pretty easy to sell. The
second sale is tyre #1, then tyre #2 etc.
The research tells us it is 5 times easier to sell an existing client item number 2 than it
is to sell item number 1.
Here is the secret.
Get the Horse into the city first.
Make your initial offer so irresistible the buyer would be a fool not to take you up.
Traditionally the first sale is hard to make but once the buyer had made the decision
the second, third and fourth are exponentially easier.
Most people make the first sale too hard. All you need to do is make the first sale
irresistibly easy. Then make the second sale only a slightly larger commitment, then
the third almost happens itself.
Rather than try to get to home base with one hit, a series of small steps will often be
far more successful.
OK HOW specifically do we construct our offer?

#1: The offer must be clearly stated

#2: The offer must be of great value

#3: The offer should either involve a discount, a bonus, or both

#4: There should be a reason for the offer. Was there a fire at your warehouse and you
must liquidate everything? Is the manufacturer running a one-time-only promotion? Is
your company's founder retiring and giving his best customers an unprecedented deal
as a fond farewell? Are you celebrating a special anniversary or event, introducing a
new service, or clearing out overstocked inventory?
Copyiight NT2 Ltu Speeu Naiketing 2u1S 27

#5: There should be a reason for immediate action - expiration dates, limited
availability or a bonus for fast response. These all work well in creating a sense of
urgency on the consumer's part.

#6: There should be a strong, clear, direct call to action. Tell the person exactly what
you want him to do. Do you want him to pick up the phone and call? Go to a website?
Come in to a business? When? What will happen when he does?

Here's a good call to action, for example.
Cut this coupon out of your newspaper. Bring it in to any of our
locations any day of this week from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm. Take it to the
cashier at the counter; she'll give you your free travel alarm clock, a
gift for just coming in while the supply lasts. Then feel free to browse
through our unique travel store. Take advantage of the huge mark
downs and sale prices and get a second travel clock free with any
$50.00 purchase to give to a friend.

#7: Make your guarantee as strong as you can. For example, I've found that longer-
term guarantees reduce refunds! In other words, a one-year, full money-back
guarantee not only gives your prospect more confidence when considering an order,
triggering higher response, but also results in fewer refunds than a one-, three-, or six-
month guarantee. A five-year guarantee works better still. These longer terms allow a
disappointed customer to feel that he has plenty of time to get around to returning the
item. Most of the time, she never does.

#8: There should be follow-up offers. In my tests with clients, if you repeat the offer
three times, you will double your response rate.

#10 Never sell more than one thing at a time, unless you have a catalogue or a group
of closely related items (for example, mystery books in a book club offer).

#12 In any business, repeat business is where the real money lies. That's why it's
usually much smarter to sell an ongoing product or service than a one-shot. Whatever
your business, try to figure out how you can market it as a club, a membership, a
newsletter, a periodic maintenance service, or some other continuity relationship.

The Secret Of The Monkeys Fist

You must first sell your prospect on giving you an
audience the sale before the sale
Gary Bencivenga

Selling is like seduction. If you ask a woman to go to bed with you, her answer
will largely depend on when you ask her.

If you ask her the moment you first meet then your chances of getting a yes
are slim because she will be too busy slapping your face.

Dont Be A Masochist!

You probably had a friend like I did who used to ask to sleep with every
woman he met as soon as he met her. When friends would ask, dont you get
slapped a lot he says sure, but I also get lucky a lot too.

Well in my opinion that guy was far more of a masochist than he needed to be
and you dont have to get slapped repeatedly just to get a little romance. And in
selling or marketing, you dont need to get a high rate of rejections.

Successful relationships often start with a flirtatious conversation, then maybe
a sharing of phone numbers and a date, then more dates, which lead to an
engagement, which leads to a marriage proposal, which leads to a lifelong

If you take the time to warm the prospect up before you ask them to buy, then
your closing rate will soar.

The Very First Step

Gary Bencivenga explains this concept best. In every sale, either in person or in
an advertisement, there are at least two sales that have to be made.

Copyiight NT2 Ltu Speeu Naiketing 2u1S 29
The main sale, of course, is the product or service you ultimately want to sell.
But before you can even get a chance to sell your main product, you must first
sell your prospect on giving you an audience.

He calls this the sale before the sale.

Two years ago my uncle (a tour operator) invited my wife and I on board a
large cruise ship docked in Wellington. While standing on the deck of a ship I
noticed that the ropes needed to moor a ship to the dock were huge. I wondered
how any seamancould ever lift such a thick rope, let alone hurl it so that it
would reach the pier.

So We Waited

We discovered that the crew doesn't even try to throw the heavy rope, known
as a "hawser." Instead a solitary crewman hurled a little iron ball, called a
"monkey's fist," which was attached to a thin rope about the size of a clothes
line to a longshoreman standing on the pier, waiting to receive it.

The longshoreman then collects the monkeys fist and starts to haul the line in
until he grabs the hawser and then pulls the hawser onshore.

Throwing a hawser is too big a first step for any sailor, just as it's too big a first
step for any marketer to approach ice-cold prospects and instantly persuade
them to buy.

The first step in the relationship between buyer and seller has to be easy.

Unlike my friend, you dont start off asking for the full Monty until trust and
mutual attraction have been well established.

Small steps, like a series of dates are more likely to lead to a yes. How many
sales people are trying to get a shag on the first date?

Gary Bencivenga, tells a story how coffee salesmen in the early 20
would sell door to door.

The selling rate was around 4% of every door knocked on. Imagine what a
tough job that would be with doors constantly being slammed in your face.

The coffee marketers tried many different approaches but they ultimately came
up with a very effective strategy.

They threw the monkey's fist and made the first step in the sales process
irresistibly easy. It was so simple...

The coffee salesman would knock on the door. But rather than launching
Copyiight NT2 Ltu Speeu Naiketing 2u1S Su
into a pitch the salesman would hold back and instead say, "Good afternoon,
madam. Today I bring you a special gift, a free half-pound of our finest coffee.

Please accept it with my compliments. In about a week, I'll return to see what
you think about it. Fair enough?"

How could she refuse?

The following week he would return with another gift if she placed her first

What happened by design was that the salesman had bypassed the automatic
rejection he would surely get if he tried a hyped-up sales pitch. This made the
sale so easy, because the salesman made the first step easy.

As Hopkins put it, "Any apparent effort to sell creates corresponding

The conversion rate went to over 40% using this new approach.

easier to sell but from that initial step, you know your conversion rates will be

How To Write a Monkeys Fist Ad

Copyiight NT2 Ltu Speeu Naiketing 2u1S S1
In its purest form the Monkeys Fist ad works just like a personals ad: it
1. Who you want to respond
2. AND who you dont want to respond
3. AND gets them to respond
So your perfect prospects step out of the crowd and identify themselves to you.
Fortunately this can often be done with small low cost ads, enabling you to put the
majority of your marketing budget into the follow-up process to super well qualified
A personals ad might read like this:

SWM, 38 seeks SWF or DWF, 25-35, into
golf, travel, fine dining, U2, Dire Straits. No
pets bigger than a bread box. Write to

For those of you who dont read the personals column SWM = single white
male, SWF (female) and DWF = divorced white female.
As you can see the advertiser has described who he wants and who he does
NOT want.
The tighter the description the more likely youll get the respondents you
The looser the greater the quantity but lower the quality

busy with the demands of your job that you have little time or effort to deal
with your finances, my video: Breakthrough wealth building strategies for
busy executives will be of interest to you. Please do not respond if you are
completely satisfied with the amount of taxes you pay, the return on your
investments and the pace of your personal wealth accumulation OR if you

should read my report BEFORE you bank your next pay cheque! For details
and free report sent by mail, confidentially, to home or office, call free

Last we add the bait to stimulate response (free report). So lets say that the perfect
prospect for you is an experienced, successful corporate executive frustrated and
Copyiight NT2 Ltu Speeu Naiketing 2u1S S2
concerned with his lack of personal and financial security and wealth. Your ad might
look something like this

The success depends on the right mix of getting the right message to the right people
using the right media, but make no mistake this strategy can be applied to almost any
business or sales career.

How Animal Nutrition Products Used A Monkeys Fist

Nigel had a team of sales people around the country selling nutritional supplements to
dairy farmers. But getting appointments with dairy farmers who were motivated to
buy was tough. Everyone is trying to sell to them. Richard Petrie said to Nigel lets

By now you have two types of offers to fire, you know how to measure the success or failure
of every campaign you run and you know the best buyers to target.

But there is one more silver bullet I want you to have. Once again this bullet fired correctly is
all you need for outstanding results. Combine it with the others and you are unstoppable.

Bullet #7
Zen And The Art Of Pricing

In all research conducted price never ranks in the top
three buying criteria yet sellers act as if price is #1

Q: How do you make more money over night?

A: Increase your prices.

Research says 10% of buyers in any market will always go for the premium option
and about 10% will always go for the cheapest option.

That means at least 90% of the market does not use lowest price as their #1 buying
criteria. Yet most businesses sell as if price is the ONLY factor.

Dont believe me? Here are some examples to make my point.

Lets say you have a brain tumour; do you tell your personal assistant to look for the
cheapest brain surgeon in the yellow pages? No.

Lets say you are in court facing charges for mass murder. Do you look to see who is
offering a 20% Christmas sale on legal fees? No.

Ok murder, brain tumour I know what you are thinking - these are extreme
examples Richard is using just to prove himself right.

Thats ok I dont mind working a little harder to prove my point so you can make
more money (effortlessly).

Right then, how about the clothes you are wearing right now?
Are you wearing the cheapest shirt, skirt, shoes, jacket you could have found?

Copyiight NT2 Ltu Speeu Naiketing 2u1S S4
No you bought stuff that makes you feel good or look good right? You paid more than
the cheapest alternative because there is a higher emotional cost in wearing cheap
What about your car, house, cell phone? Could have bought a far cheaper version that
did the same basic function but maybe was not nearly as cool? Yip you know it and
I know it.

Then if you dont buy on price maybe neither does your market.

The research on price is hardly hidden and yet dumb marketers or business owners
will compete on lowest price like a Lemming jumping off a cliff. This is because they
know no other way.

The solution is to sack whoever is telling you to drop your pants as your advisor, even
if that advisor is you.

Heres the good news the competition at the premium end is nowhere near as
intense as at the discount end of the market.

While the Lemmings are dropping their pants and slitting each others throats in an
attempt to win the worst clients in the market, you can be servicing the rich end.

Bigger margins mean you can provide a better service. Better service means clients
get a better result or experience. A better result or experience leads to happier clients
and more referrals, and more profits.

More profits means you can invest more to win new clients, meaning you can grow
faster and get rich. And this means you can outsource the delivery and spend more
time on the beach.

I can buy a smart cell phone for $100 or $1,000. Apart from my ego they essentially
do the same thing. It does not cost Apple 10x more to build an i-phone. Maybe with
economies of scale it is possible an i-phone costs less.

If you offer a premium service for 50% more, it wont need to cost you 50% more.

In my local paper, the Dominion Post, yesterday there was an article titled 'It's a
decadent dogs life at Waglands' where Ben Adams and Arlene Hawkyard set up
'Waglands DogsGrooming and Holiday Retreat'.

The article describes a 'luxury 5 star experience with heated pads during winter,
gourmet food, sand pits and special areas for afternoon naps are available.

Despite being at the premium priced end of the scale, Waglands have had to turn
away 300 dogs for the Christmas period and were booked out months ago.

They are using strategies #1 #2 #3 and probably 3 to4 others.

This selling at higher prices stuff works but you cannot serve up the same slop as
everyone else.
Copyiight NT2 Ltu Speeu Naiketing 2u1S SS

When looking to sell at higher prices here are some important keys

1. It is best to break the old industry norms of what gets delivered - because the
traditional way of delivering the standard service triggers traditional price

When no-one else is offering heated dog pads or gourmet food, then it is hard
compare against anything else comparable.

2. Create a new service more aligned to an outcome wanted than the process.

Rather than selling a dog kennel service, try selling the equivalent of a Grooming
And Holiday Retreat'

3. Create a service aligned to exactly what the big spenders want.

Stop trying to be all things to all people. There are some people who like John Wayne
and others who like Boy George, but creating a service that appeals to both is going to
make you poor.
