Tip Of The Week
Move this book to the top of your reading stack. Work the System by Sam Carpenter.
We must study the mechanical minutia of our tasks if we are to excel. This means observing: looking down and analyzing the sub-systems of our lives…to see our selves as mechanical devices that can be made to be super-efficient. The next step is to spend the majority of our time perfecting each of our sub-systems, one by one.
Here’s a happy thought: Study and then perfect your systems as a main focus and you’ll find yourself in select company and therefore flying faster and higher than a huge percentage of the competition. Make More. Work Less.
Lots of people work hard to become expert at what they do, but what great heights will be achieved by becoming expert at a flawed process?
Is it okay for Christians to be rich?
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Feature Segment: How to Market Like a Machine
No business can survive without a systematic approach to marketing.
“Systematic” means well-defined, carefully followed procedures that produce predictable results.
A true Marketing System consists of the following things: predictable processes that produce large quantities of good prospects, clients, and customers for your business. Your marketing system must provide these prospects efficiently (without a lot of hands-on work from you) and affordably (as in, it costs less to get a customer than the revenue that customer produces).
Violate any one of these rules and you're in trouble, one step away from the Taco Delmar Phenomena.
Here are the components of a good Marketing System:
1. Product Success Formula: TG + CDP/HAS(YCS )+ THM + WTS
2. Media that is efficient, affordable, they already use
3. A compelling message
4. An irresistable free offer
5. Multi-step automated short-term follow up systems
6. Multi-step long term follow up
7. Tested conversion process
