The Best Sales and Marketing Techniques from my Mastermind
I’ve been fortunate to be exposed to some amazing internet advertisers through my Mastermind. And in 2019 I plan to double down on my efforts in running facebook ads etc.
So here is a mash up from my notes of the best advice I have received related to advertising. Sometimes my notes are just not that complete but I think you will get the idea.
Lewis Howes – Viral Advertising
Title or headline examples:
- Before you celebrate your birthday, watch this
- Before you make an excuse, watch this
- If you want to become a millionaire watch this

Minimum 3 minutes in video length, shoot for 3-8 mins
Did you ever struggle in school? I learned early on that I needed good grades, but when I was in school I stuttered. I always felt inadequate.
As I got older I found out that stuttering doesn’t indicate your potential!
The truth is… successful people think outside of the box.
If you failed in school you might be more qualified to be a millionaire than you thought!
You were taught to sit still but not when to speak up against bullying…
Don’t sell the system – sell the results!
Empathize with your customer. When you try to sell to them, their NO really means “Please don’t give up on me yet! I just don’t know enough to make a decision!”
Example: If you feel like you are meant to do greater things than your current 9-5 job, well I felt the same way. 5 years ago I ended up in a dead end job that was crush gin my spirit, but then I found that starting my own side hustle gave me an avenue to become excited again!
Fee, Cost, Price! ONLY use Invest or Investment
- Hope for gain
- Fear of loss
Example: You are going to want to invest because you will love the results.
Positive presuppositions: Just by watching this video I know you are an action taker looking for more out of life. Maybe you’ve done well but are ready to do even better, etc
Confirmation sets: 2 obvious and 1 future set
- You are here and ready to learn real estate
- You know that having the best knowledge will give you the best chance of success
- You are ready today to invest in starting your own real estate business

Problem / Solution: Summer is coming and when you are invited to go to the beach what will you say? Get in bikini shape in no time with XYZ workout routine.
- The HOOK
$5 CPM average on Facebook
Ask 1,000 people per day to buy your stuff:
Example: Billy ran an ad with 27 million views, 20,000 customers, and $2,000,000 in revenue on a cost of $135,000
That means 99.92% of people said NO! But he made $2 million dollars!
Boring ads will put you out of business in 2019.
