TIME-STAMPED SHOW NOTES:

  • [00:27] Today’s Topic: Should You Give Up On Marketing Campaigns That Don’t Work Initially
  • [00:40] Singlegrain is trying to do what ClickFunnels has done in terms of bundling software with online courses.
  • [01:00] Eric made an elaborate webinar and found that people really liked it.
  • [01:17] However, no one bought immediately afterwards.
  • [01:35] Eric was so disappointed, but he decided it would take more work to succeed pitching bundles.
  • [02:04] The feedback he received let him know that he was downplaying his teaching skills too much.
  • [02:15] So, sometimes you need to take a step back and re-jigger things and understand that everything takes time.
  • [02:35] Don’t give up.
  • [03:00] Marketing isn’t easy: you’re not going to get the results you want unless you put in a lot of work.
  • [03:10] It could take a year before you start to gain traction.
  • [03:40] Even though Neil gets 1 Million visits a month, he is still hungry for more.

  • [04:15] Don’t’ just do the webinar, follow up with emails!
  • [04:30] If a campaign stops working, don’t give up on it. Figure out what needs to be added (upsells, downsells) or updated (your landing page, etc.).
  • [04:50] Never give up on things that work. Always attempt to fix it before giving up.
  • [05:09] That’s all for today!
