Ryan Deiss' Continuity Blueprint

30 replies
Just got the first launch vid for this yesterday. Landing page looks a LOT like the PLF 2 launch vids.

I'd love to know more about this product. I'm guessing launch will be in 10-14 days if he's following the "formula."

    In looking forward to Ryan's material. He really seems to know continuity programs inside and out and delivers good information.

      Pretty good video even though it was pretty choppy. However I am also looking forward to learning more about the continuity blueprint.

        Video 3 is very well done, easy to follow and persuasive. Now the question is: Is he going to make it affordable?

            I'd be surprised if it wasn't a continuity program.

            Seriously, though, it'll be at *least* $497, and probably more like 2k.

    I think Ryan really knows his stuff, but is it worth $2k? I don't know, but he does give a great guarantee if you watch video 3 all the way to the end...

      Ryan Deiss knows his stuff well. I bought the previous version which was called "30 days to 10k program". I ended up snapping up his upsells and follow ups and they were all great material.

      Having spent nearly 2k buying his membership site products, I already own most of the bonuses (experts interviews) he is offering this time round. I'm kind of disappointed that he didn't offer lifetime upgrades for past buyers. In the past program, he mentioned that the reason he made this program digitally delivered, as opposed to physical package was so that he could update it in the future if there was a need to. Sadly it didn't happen without having me fork out extra money.

      However, it's still worth checking out if you hadn't gone through it before. But make sure that you already understand the fundamentals of internet marketing. Test your niche like crazy before you even invest your 1st dollar. If you picked the wrong market, it curtains (been there).

      Make sure that you have the budget to follow through. Ryan mentioned that it only takes about $500 to start a membership site. I cannot agree with that one. He did not factor in the cost of traffic generation, hiring graphics designer, content creation and licensing. If you are expecting to pay 2k and out pops a 10k per month membership site, then this is definitely not for you. Don't be surprised if you need to spend another 1-3k to fuel that online recurring income machine.

      Time + Money + Action = Results (success or failure depending on what you did)

      Hope this helps.

        In my mind Ryan is the authority of Continuity. Most
        people don't realize his brilliance. I'd pay alot more
        then 2k for his knowledge. I actually have in the past.

          Yeah, Matt I agree with you. Ryan Deiss is a brilliant marketer. What I'm saying here is just that you need to make sure you have the financial means to carry out the steps in the program. Some people don't even make 2k/mth.

          If you're gonna buy a course and lose sleep over the next because of that, then quite frankly you're just not ready to take on the challenge of creating a membership site yet. In a nutshell. Make your first 3k/mth income selling regular products, THEN figure out how to turn it into forced continuity. Sure you'll agree with me.

            There are two schools of thought. Every thought works. Depends on the person.

            I would have agreed with you a few years ago but If you start with using
            continuity in the beginning then you'll never need to worry about money, just
            put the same effort you would put into selling the stuff you would sell in
            the first place.

            Example.

            Sell $3,000 with regular product - you make $3,000

            If you sell $3,000 regular product with continuity - you make $3,000 plus "monthly" money.

            That's called "Piece of Mind".

              My biggest concern with continuity (or forced continuity in this case) is the tremendous amounts of support requests that you might get from some customers who "skim" through salesletters and don't bother looking at what's being offered. They come a month later complaining about the charge and if you are using your own merchant account, chargebacks can hurt you as well...

              I don't know how that would account for a peace of mind?

                Yep. It depends on the person who bought the product. But selling & maintaining a membership site is much harder than one-time sale. I would only recommend it for someone who has immediate level of experience in internet marketing. To all who bought Ryan's product, you're in good hands and I wish you best of luck.

                  I went ahead and jumped in. Ryan is brilliant at continuity and just having access to him is worth the cost alone.

                  Russell Brunson, in Affiliate Evolution, said he makes over $160,000 a month off just one of his membership sites (4,000 members at $40 a month) and - if he had to start over - would start with a continuity program right from the get go.

                  Mbacak's right, why struggle trying to come up with a new product every month (that is, if you're like most people and don't make $10,000 a month just off affiliate commissions) when you can setup a membership site and put your effort into that.

                  If you set it up right, there should be a lot of things you can outsource (think "systemization") and eventually, if you want, sell it for some major bucks because you have an asset with a constant flow of income.

                  Of course, that's just my .02 . Sounds good though...

                    Yeah gotta agree with Matt.

                    Nowadays, my lead product for any niche is always a membership site. Even better, make the membership low-cost to get in tons of front-end sign-ups which will translate to long term profits and also a bigger customer list.

                      The videos were great, but I didn't buy this as it's pretty pricey and I have a pretty good handle on membership sites. I started one using Extreme Member (aff) which provides membership levels/payments, email marketing, affiliate marketing and forums for $99/month. I teach guitar lessons and have been giving away free lessons for years so it's a huge passion of mine. I sell monthly (with cheap 1 week trial) and annual memberships.

                      For my second niche product I did things a bit differently. I obtained some amazing content and threw up a wordpress based site with paypal and email and will see if I get sales before I expand on it.

    I use this system as well.

    I used a twist (that I got from Dan Kennedy stuff), my continuity program is free for the first 3 months. It converts well.

    I had a little problem with Joomla though. I won't use them anymore in my business. Wordpress may be a good choice.

    this seems to be a good product.

    Continuity is a MUST have. Every millionaire will tell you this.

      I like Ryan's insight.

      He mentions how most fitness products
      are designed to slide under the bed so
      the people that purchase them won't be
      faced with the fact that they won't use them.

      He tied that in with not emailing your members
      so you don't remind them they are paying
      you every month.

      Priceless tip...

        Maybe, but on the same token, if you don't e-mail them
        then you can't upsell them on something else.

        (BTW, e-mail me or PM me, Craig. You, John and I should
        talk.)

        Yup!

        I just unsubscribed from a keyword service 2 days ago after they sent me an email about a new feature...

        It's a good tip... indeed.

        His email reminded me that I wanted to unsubscribe.

        Depends if you're building relationships or just trying to be sleazy.

        If I find a subscription on my card that I haven't found useful and felt like I was promised something that didn't deliver, I'm not afraid to do a chargeback for the last 3 or 4 months.

    take plenty of notes and watch each vid at least twice and you have more than 90% of the courses on the market IMHO... I took pages of notes from the vids when he originally released this product so much so I didn't feel that euphoric urge to buy it, as is normally the case when i absorb that much information on someones cure-all system/course

    Craig...great point.

    If you are not emailing your list...how can you build relationships. I don't agree with bombarding with offers but the only way to build a business that will thrive is to keep in touch with your members. Let them know you care and appreciate them. They will be responsive when you send them a good offer. Let them know that you are there for them and not hiding behind your computer.

    Cheers!

      It is a fine line.

      I email my members less than I
      mail my non paying subscribers.

      For two reasons.

      I feel that if they are paying me each
      month then they should be learning
      new things from me.

      And as I mentioned before some people
      remember that they meant to cancel
      their membership.

    One advantage with Clickbank over Paypal has always been that they don't send emails every month, as long as you don't have the Paypal option in CB switched on.
    The same is true if you use your own merchant account.

    There are negative aspects as well... pre-empting the anti-Clickbank trolls

    Building a continuity program where you avoid emailing your subscribers for fear that they will cancel, is a sure sign that you are not providing value and not a leader in your niche.

    This is a sad truism for many of today's IM Gurus!

  • Profile picture of the author AndyBeard
    Emailing about new content and the added value shouldn't be something you avoid, I agree, though others wouldn't.

    A few things I object to

    1. Using the same email address for membership updates as used for promotional emails - it is annoying not being able to filter just the most valuable emails
    2. I want better delivery options, and if there are lots of things to download, links that work with download managers
    3. If I need to attend a call, private ustream etc, make sure there is a link I can use with various calendars

    I'd say that a continuity makes your life 3x easier... if your stick rate is 3 months.

    Simply because if you get 100 customers per month, then the average no. of customers you will have at any time will be 300.. not 100. And ytou'd get paid 3 times more money. That's when your stick rate is 3 months.

    In most cases when you are with an extert, the stick rate is just about 4-5 months.

    More power with the same effort= Continuity

    P.S. Go for it if you need to. This stuff really is good.

    One VERY important thing is that when you talk to Ryan, you feel like talking to a real businessman.

    Not a lot of people out there really know business. That is your hard core business that is created for life and is at the center of your attention.

    Ryan does.
