Any Interest In This?

44 replies
Would you be interested in a membership site where I give content on [obviously] offline marketing?

I'm not looking to get rich off the site, so I was considering just making it like $9.95 per month.

Content would be screen capture videos talking about everything related to offline marketing (marketing, advertising, sales, persuasion, positioning, etc). Not sure on content length, 30-60 minutes I suppose.

I would also answer FAQ's each month.

And if anyone wanted to send in their client scenarios, I would be more than willing to offer insight into how you can help your client grow their business.

If you've followed me at all on here, or purchased any of my products, you know I leave out the fluff and deliver solid content.


Summary
Content comes once a month
Content will be videos
You'll get any accompanying PDF's if needed
MP3's of the video
FAQ
Suggestions on how to help your clients (extra set of eyes)

All for only $9.95.


Would you be interested in this?

And I'm open to suggestions on how to add more value to this. So if you have any ideas, let me know.

    Wow 30 to 60 min is very long. I would break them down to 10 minutes at the most.

    My question is - why should anyone listen to you? What makes you an expert? What results do you have? Why would anyone pay you $9.95 a month to listen to you? Will you be including any content about how to actually get clients, based on actual experience? I'm not being mean, just curious.

    Better idea would be to do something like this as a mastermind group. Something that gets dialogue going back and forth among subscribers. Mario has something like that, but it's too expensive. $37 a month, I think.

      Wait, are you saying that I would be giving too much content?? :confused:

      Or take the 60 minute video and break it down into (6) ten minute videos?

      Do a search on my name.

      Not to mention all of this would be covered in the sales letter.

      That's a good idea. Like a webinar/teleconfernce.

      But you think $37 is too much for that?! If it's with the right people, that is a steal.

        Perhaps we're thinking of two separate things. To me, a mastermind group is a good idea, but no one really should profit from that. It's a gathering of minds to help move each other forward. I won't pay money for it though, except as a maintenance fee for the group.

        I think you are presenting yourself more as a consultant/coach, which could be good for some, especially for those just starting out. Not me so much as my background is in marketing. Your price is good.

        Good luck with it.

    Its flat out Brilliant. This is a product that is so needed. Marketing is the single important business skill, bar none. (I'm not talking about advertising...I'm talking about making and keeping customers)

    Businesses fail not because they are "risky" they fail because the owners didn't realize that their one and only job was to make and keep customers....they got lost in all the other things they thought businesses do.

    I'd love to contribute ideas where I can.

    (raises hand) I'm in if needed.

      Yes, marketing is the highest leverage point in a business.

      And yet, often the most overlooked aspect of doing business. As Dan Kennedy says, "You're not in the thing business. You're in the marketing of the thing business."

      Big breakthroughs can be made when someone truly grasps what that means.

      Agreed.

      Business really comes down to 3 components...

      Identify market
      Get leads
      Convert leads

      Thanks! If I move forward with this, perhaps we can team up and do something on postcard marketing.

      ----------------------------------------------------------------------


      Perhaps I'll do these but as WSO's. So each month would be another WSO product. I'd probably just keep them all in one single WSO. So as time goes on it will provide one place for people to see every months content and allow them to pick and choose what they want instead of being locked into a monthly membership.

      Thoughts on this?

      Doran has this covered - so many people lose sight of the fact that (a) it's a business, it will behave like any other business and (b) that marketing is the same essentially, be it off-line or on-line. The same principles apply.

    Hey Vagabond 007,

    It sounds like a good offering for $9.95. The two hot buttons for me are:
    • "I would also answer FAQ's each month." - This is a fast moving business. Knowing you will address changes as they quickly come up is a big plus.
    • "You'll get any accompanying PDF's if needed" - OK, I won't come out and say that I hate videos, but usually I find them to be such a time waster. Far to often, the presenter will blather on for minutes before making a marginally useful comment. I'd much prefer have a pdf to scan through and then if something seems real interesting, I'll fast forward to that section of the video.
    I'll keep an eye out for your sales letter.

    thanks,

    Randy

    Gene...

    This sounds great. You are one of the handful of people on here that I pay attention to and I have found great benefit from your information products.

    I'd love to see 10 minute videos as well as PDFs. Sometimes important things get lost in a video. However, having it readable on-screen where I can get a chance to mull over the information is a HUGE plus for me.

    I would also like to see a forum component where members could network, ask questions, bounce ideas and get feedback. I think a behind the curtain open discussion forum would add great value and a stickiness to your program. (similar to Offline X Factor)

    A repository of your products would also be of great value (hint). I for one would pay whatever you asked. $9.95 seems really cheap to me for what you deliver.

    Pickup the AP mantle on this... he had a great private program outlined, just a shame he didn't deliver.

    $9.95 is an absolute pittance!

    Can't believe all the cheap @3!&*! out there. If you can get true value from a mastermind or membership site so that you make money... it's worth it.

    I'm paying one membership site $47 a month, another $27 and another $9.95 per month. EVERYONE of them MAKES ME MONEY. The key is the value, not the cost.

    For example: When I am going after a specific market it may cost me $100 - $500 to land a client... but that client pays me $5000 - $20,000, so I pay that all the time.

    So what's the problem with $9.95 or more if the ROI is great?

      It's real, time tested information that you will be getting from a real pro and not some look-at-all-my-WSO's type that creates more WSO's than the actual business they do outside of selling WSO's.

      What you get from Gene is pure platinum at scrap metal prices.

      That is the point that I wanted to make.

    Gene is one of the "top shelf" members of Warrior Forum when it comes to "getting it" as a marketing consultant. He's one of the few that I would include in any mastermind group discussion because he's going to skip past all the inane nonsense and just cut straight to the point. If he's offering his time and attention, I'd take advantage of it as a beginner to intermediate warrior looking to take the next step.

      It seems a lot of people are like that. They would rather have a PDF so they can skim through it when they want. It's quicker.

      I always do my best to leave out the BS and get right to the point. But, if I do go through with this, then I'll be sure to include any PPT slides, docs, PDFs, etc. along with the videos.

      I've exchanged some private messages with him and he has shared some fantastic resources with me. I have a feeling that you will blown away by what he shares with you if you are smart enough to convince him to go ahead and offer this.

      You wouldn't pay to have access to a group of like minded individuals that can help you make huge breakthroughs in your business?!

      I'm not even referring to my membership site (assuming I did it). Just in general. Being a part of the right mastermind group is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your business.

      So why wouldn't you pay for that?

      Regards,

      Yes, part of it would be on coaching/consulting. But a small part. The things I talk about on here and in my products apply to virtually any business, not just consultants.

      Thing you have to remember is when I, or anyone else (Michael Hiles, for example), talk about ways to improve your consulting business by positioning yourself properly, communication skills, generating leads, getting "high" fees, and all of the other things we talk about, they are the very same things a consultant could teach to their clients (read: a variety of different businesses).

      Wouldn't you agree that most businesses could benefit from positioning themselves properly, lead generation, better communication with their market, higher prices and adding value, etc.?

      A lot of people seem to gloss over the fact that "he's talking about being a consultant, that doesn't apply to other businesses."

      WRONG!

      This is something Dan Kennedy talks about a lot...people are always complaining "my business is different."

      That was a long response to a quick comment. But the bottom line is what I talk about, and will continue to talk about, goes way beyond the scope of just helping consultants/coaches.

      Hey George, thanks for the compliments and feedback.

      The forum is a good suggestion. Although, probably something I would only do after a good number of people were in the membership. Nothing worse than a forum that's a ghost town.

      Thanks Michael! I think the same about you. You are one of my favorite members and I have learned a lot from you.


      -----------------------------------------------------------------------


      Thank you to everyone for all of their kind words. It's nice to see that what I contribute is not going un-noticed. So again, I appreciate the compliments.

      I will think more about this whole later tonight and this weekend. And most likely will have the first months content ready to go by early next weekend...shooting for Monday.

      Also, it seems that mindset should be one of the first things I cover. Unfortunately, mindset stuff is not pretty or something that will instantly add a billion dollars to your bank account with the push of a button. So most people tend to over look it.

      Which is a shame. Because in my opinion, getting your head straight IS the shortcut.

      I attribute learning the right mindset to turning my life around. Literally. Mentally I am in a much better place than I was earlier in my life. Mindset and self image is one of my favorite topics and I could teach a lot on the topic.

      It's a shame others don't embrace learning the right mindset. Seriously, it helps you out in ALL areas of life.

      Ok, I'm rambling again.

      Thanks again. Really, I appreciate all of the great feedback. So Thank You.


      But wait, there's more!

      Sorry, had to.


      Feel free to post any topics you want help on. I want you to know that this will be very interactive. I WILL listen to your feedback and create content on your suggestions. I want this membership to be something that YOU get value from. Sure, it's only going to be $10 or so and it will be a steal, but again, I want feedback and any suggestions on how to make it better/what topics to cover.


      Don't quote me on this (as $10 is already a steal), but I'll probably make the first months content for $1. This way anyone on the edge can see the value of it and see if it's worth the extra 9 dollars.

          It's a pity these other people don't know you, they don't know what they'll miss out on! (Maybe it's a good thing for me: less competition. )

          And at $ 10.00 a month it's a steal.

          There are alot of guys on here hiding under their tin foil hats wanting to say we are conspiring to sell to them, that is why we would promote each others products or ideas.....


          Really... I don't care if I like you or not. If your product and material is crap. I will tell you.

          From my experience... Vagabond has always offered quality posts on this forum. I have yet to buy one of his products, but that doesn't mean I won't in the very near future.

          I look at what each individual on this forum brings to the table. Then I decide if I would spend the dough on one of their shiny new bells and whistles.

          From what I have seen of Genes posts and quality of content therein, I would totally endorse and trust the fact that I am going to receive way more than a measley $10 a month worth of ideas, and content.

          Just sayin....

          There are a few guys on this forum that under promise and over deliver, which is just good marketing by God.....

          From what I have seen.... Most of them are on this thread. Including but not limited to the OP.

          I'm going to give my opinion here, and it kind of goes against the grain.

          But I think your offering is too cheap. If you've got the experience and the runs on the board that others say you have then you should be charging much more for this. It should be aimed at real business owners, and be no less than $50.

          One reason is the price does not make you look credible.

          Another is the amount of time you'll spend for potentially not a lot of $$$ (although you could be going for a huge number of subscribers instead).

          But the real problem I see is...where do you go next? You offer so much for so little, what opportunity is there to take people to the next level? If you structure it differently, couldn't you run a smaller program for an intro price, have a middle level program like this then a high end coaching group for a lot more.

            I appreciate your input. Truth be told, I've always been a fan of higher pricing. I always feel that if the product is good and provides value, there is no way I'm letting it go for dirt cheap.

            Although I've been tossing around the idea of selling a WSO that I should charge a lot for but was going to sell it cheap.

            Ultimately, it wasn't about the money. I'm just REALLY passionate about marketing and helping people. So I've been tossing around the idea of doing some type of membership site...hence this thread.

            ------------------------------------------------------------------------


            After giving this further thought, for now, I'm NOT going to do the membership site. I was really dead set on doing this. But gave it further thought and for now I'm just going to focus on other things. I'll probably just release the trainings I was going to do as cheaper priced WSO's (like I mentioned in my post above). This way no one has to worry about their card getting charged every month and I'm not handcuffed to any deadlines.

            I'll be releasing something either today or tomorrow that will be cheap (my cheapest WSO to date) but I'll really think you'll like it. Although it wouldn't fall under membership type content like I've been talking about.

            Perfect example of me being lazy...this has been done for about 2 weeks now and all I had left was to make a screen capture video of it for the sales letter. Just got around to it last night and finishing it up today.

      Thanks, I did it in-house.

      I have a full production facility but this was quick and dirty so it was literally just jpg background with animated text using Corel Video Studio Pro X3 (which I like to use even more than Premiere sometimes because it has the hands down fastest rip engine known to mankind).

    Adriana Lima is HOT!

    WoW!

    Client management and retention would be an excellent topic that is never really talked about here.

    I don't have problems keeping them... but sometimes I back burner some....

    Thank you... I will have to look into Corel.. I haven't used any of their products in a LONG time.

      Well, I don't know. For $9.95 every month?

        Hey Gene,
        I'll bite. I've received great value from your info and posts here on the forum so to me $9.95 sounds like a steal knowing that you don't put out garbage. Let me know when you go live with it... or even before you go live and I'll write you a review / testimonial for your sales copy. Looking forward to it.

    I'm not looking to get rich off the site, so I was considering just making it like $9.95 per month.

    Content would be screen capture videos talking about everything related to offline marketing (marketing, advertising, sales, persuasion, positioning, etc). Not sure on content length, 30-60 minutes I suppose.

    I would also answer FAQ's each month.

    And if anyone wanted to send in their client scenarios, I would be more than willing to offer insight into how you can help your client grow their business.

    If you've followed me at all on here, or purchased any of my products, you know I leave out the fluff and deliver solid content.


    Summary
    Content comes once a month
    Content will be videos
    You'll get any accompanying PDF's if needed
    MP3's of the video
    FAQ
    Suggestions on how to help your clients (extra set of eyes)

    All for only $9.95.


    Would you be interested in this?

    And I'm open to suggestions on how to add more value to this. So if you have any ideas, let me know.
    Hi,
    A 60 minute vid for $10 bucks is really a ton of work for little cash...

    You may want to get a plan with oneononeads dot com for cheaper vids and save your pro work for higher quality/priced commercials...

    i'd love to see this. i don't know about a monthly fee, but an encyclopedic tome of offline marketing would be very helpful. I'd be in. Do you consult?
