Key Takeaways

  • There are killer ideas everywhere, but you have to be open to receiving them, no matter where you are. Like Gary, always keep your marketing radar on & open your mind to ideas in even the most unlikely of places.
  • Having a fascinating & often unbelievable character with a success story can be extremely powerful in your marketing. It grabs attention, gives the pitch believability by giving a concrete example & can make the prospect feel that "if this person can achieve this, so can I!" or "this person has experienced my struggles & it's clear they've discovered the answers I need".
  • Notice how at the end of the ad, Gary goes into detail about exactly what action they need to take next. Of course, the ordering is done by phone so a thorough explanation is needed, but overall, you should get into the habit of clearly directing prospects on exactly what they must do next. You don't want any confusion when it's time for them to buy or opt-in.
