Solving the Marketing Model Mystery

Sep 12, 2020

I was sad to hear that one of my all-time favourite copywriters, Clayton Makepeace, passed away recently. With permission, I'm sharing one of his many insightful articles here. Enjoy - Rob

  • The six qualities all great products share…
  • How flawed marketing models kill great products and render brilliant sales copy worse than worthless …
  • The quickest, easiest way to find the best marketing model for your product …

Dear Business-Builder,

It’s your lucky day:

You’ve found a great product to promote.

Maybe it’s a client’s product; maybe it’s your own.

It could be an information product – a book or e-book, newsletter or website membership, an audio or video, a live teleseminar or webinar, a course, conference or a live coaching service – that really does help folks get richer, healthier, thinner, sexier or just plain happier.

Lots of Competition? Great!!!

Sep 12, 2020

Often, I’ll talk to someone who says:

‘I’m a bit worried that everyone else seems to be doing what I plan to do… 

...there seems to be an awful lot of competition.’

You SHOULD fear:

Your inability to differentiate.

In ‘busy’ or even saturated markets, being better arguably isn’t as good as being different.

There may be ‘nowt new under the sun,’ but…

There ARE always different spins…

...different styles...

...different emphases…

...different routes to the goal.

Need an example?

Think back to Apple’s wildly successful...
