My Ask formula is what I need to share because it’s too valuable to keep it for myself.
People don’t know what they want until they have seen it so 1 question to ask your market before doing anything is, “Whats single biggest challenge you have related to your problem you currently have?”
Single sentence: There is a difference between what people say they want and what they really want and what they really wanna buy from you and to uncover that it’s all about asking the right questions at the right time.
It all starts with the deep dive survey asking the big question: “What’s your biggest problem?”
We have entered 23 markets successfully.
We generate 52,000 email subscribers every single day which is about 19 million per year.
Some of those markets include satellite television, weight loss supplements, witness education, dog training, memory improvement, business funding, it ranges from physical products that sell for thousands to info products we sell for free plus shipping.
I have a team of 25 people all around the world and growing to become a 8 figure business.
Biggest Temporary Defeat?
I invested a ton of money to get it off the ground and at end of day had to close it down.
Flushed $75K down the toilet.
