I Jacked Best Buy’s “Santa Special” and Made My Own

All it cost was $1… I was scanning some “deals of the season,” and I noticed Best Buy was running a promotion.  If you switched your phone plan to Verizon, they’d give you a brand new iPhone for only $1. Boom! That’s a great deal. AND great timing! I’ve been sick and tired of my phone service for awhile now. Plus it’s GREAT ... Read More »

Copy the WWE to Grow Your Business (Works Immediately)

Unless you live under a rock, you know what the WWE is.  It’s SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT, otherwise known as “Professional Wrestling.” I’ve been a fan since I was probably 6 years old. As I got older, I used to shy away from telling people I watched wrestling. “Are you serious? You still watch that?” Then I realized I didn’t G.A.F what ... Read More »

(Seriously) Ethan Made His First Sale WITHOUT Ad Spend

So last week I told you about Ethan. He’s a new client of mine in a small segment of the real estate niche. Ethan has built an email list of around 10,000 people. And he has a core product he sells. But that was all he had. If people didn’t buy his core product, he had nothing else to sell ... Read More »

What My Cable TV Provider Taught Me About Facebook Ads

If you’re anything like me, you have a love/hate relationship with your cable TV provider.  But one thing I LOVE is how they recommend shows for me to watch, based on PREVIOUS shows I’ve watched. Let’s say I’ve watched 3 cheesy Christmas movies over the last 2 days. They’ll recommend me 15 other cheesy Christmas movies that I might enjoy. ... Read More »

A Broken iPad, $150, and a Facebook Targeting “Secret”

It’s a BOOMING business that no one is talking about… Cracked iPads (…and iPhones too). If you have young kids, you know what I’m talking about.  Even if you don’t, you see it all around.

The first thing I did was send an email to our list of over 10,000 customers for this store. That brought some immediate sales, which let us ... Read More »
