Were you completely bombarded by emails urging you to buy Michael Rasmussen's new “Get More Buyers” Video Course on Tuesday?
Ya, me too.
What really got me was the sheer number of so-called ‘reviews' that contained exactly the same wording.
(Here's a tip… regurgitating merchant copy word-for-word is NOT how one becomes a Super affiliate.)
Suffice to say that those marketers probably didn't bother to watch the course in its entirety — if at all.
But before I tell you what I thought about the course and just in case you think email marketing / list-building isn't where it's at when it comes to making money online — I sent out 2 emails last month in one niche and bought an RV with the proceeds — and I don't do everything that Michael suggests in “Get More Buyers“… yet. 🙂
Just 25 seconds into the videos, Michael discards the entrenched marketing theory that ‘the money is in the list'. From the perspective of an avid and successful email marketer, Michael's assertion grabbed my attention and kept it throughout the rest of the course.
Pretty remarkable, considering I have trouble sitting through some 2 minute video tutorials, and “Get More Buyers” took a couple of hours to go through as I paused the video a few times to make notes.
So, the video was well produced and the content captivating, but will his course really help YOU get more buyers? Well…
Considering how well Michael does in some JV sales contests, I know that his approach works extremely well.
For instance, having already won one prize (and hoping for another), I was sitting pretty in a top spot a few days into one contest when Michael came out of nowhere to end up in the third position and won a giant prize for his efforts.
If I implement just a few of the tips that I picked up from his videos, he'll have more competition from me down the road. You hear that, Michael? 🙂
But will Michael's 10 strategies work for you?
Well, that somewhat depends on the markets in which you work.
For example, a couple of his suggestions are completely irrelevant to picking up more buyers in dating niche. Too, it might be very difficult to make his strategies work if you affiliate only with big brand name companies. OR, if you're a ‘lazy' affiliate marketer – someone who just wants to drive traffic to your offers with PPC then take your commissions and run – Michael's strategies probably won't work for you.
Too, I've tried one of the more specific strategies in ‘Get More Buyers' and found that while it generated a mountain of subscribers, they were ‘garbage leads' or ‘freebie seekers' – not buyers. Then again, I probably didn't work hard enough to cultivate those particular leads – a subject that is covered in one of Michael's Fast Action Bonuses, ‘Making Your Buyers List Pay Off‘ report. Note: This bonus is only available until November 4th at 9:00pm PST.
That said, what Michael recommends will work particularly well if you promote products in the business opportunities market OR if you promote information products in almost any other niche. Affiliate marketers would do well just to listen to Michael's 16:39 introduction for ideas on how to expand their businesses. And if you put in the effort to do as Michael suggests (re creating funnels, partnerships, added value, etc.), there's no doubt that you'll be able to build big fat lists that are filled with buyers, and he gives you a raft of good ideas on how to simplify your workload.
Is ‘Get More Buyers‘ worth $77.00?
To figure that out, calculate the value of your typical buyer. If a buyer is worth $10 to you, you'll have to make 8 sales to recoup your cost. If your leads are worth $50, then you'll only have to make 2 sales. It's all gravy after that, and if you follow Michael's ‘Get More Buyers‘ plan, you will add hundreds, if not thousands, of buyers to your lists.
In summary, I say Get More Buyers is worth the price it if you want to grow your business and make more money from building bigger buyer lists.
