This is the LAST time this program is being offered at this price. Oh yes, the fee is going up (hey, my marketing coach is even tougher than I am about fees!).
My next program isn't even scheduled yet, so if you want clients sooner rather than later, now is the time to take action.
Need more reasons? How about this:
You'll learn how to answer the five most frequently asked (yet often hardest to answer) questions from your prospects
I'll share my three favorite easy, low-cost strategies you can use to build your business quickly
You'll learn exactly how to articulate how you stand out from everyone else--even those who do the same thing you do
We'll figure out what you can do to attract clients that leverages your personal skills and talents
Plus you'll get my personal list of must-have resources (including ideas for how to use them to your advantage)
Oh, I almost forgot: You'll ALSO receive a copy of my own marketing plans so you can see exactly what I did to build my business--and what I am doing now!
You can work at your own pace. Although the program schedule is set and followed by the group, you may complete assignments by either following the recommended schedule, by working ahead, or by catching up
The beauty of this program is that you can access it as often or as little as you like because all the course materials are available 24/7 on the website in both audio and written form
So, even if you have to skip one (or five) meetings, you won't really miss a thing because all meetings are recorded and posted to the website in MP3 audio format. You can listen to it right from your computer, download it to your iPod or hard drive, or even burn the audios to CD
And the best part? All this support, information, tools, and coaching costs UNDER $100 PER MONTH!
You don't have to be a techie to get your website high in Google rankings--at least I'm not, and my site has been #1 for two solid YEARS. Just read my two short articles (SEO Part 1 and Part 2) that outline my easy (seriously, it took me about 20 minutes) strategies for getting to the TOP (#1 for "marketing coach") on Google.
All you need to do to win this package is to tell Brandie why you should win in the comments on the page by the deadline (March 8, 2009 at 11:59pm PST). Why you? Are you starting your dream company? Pursuing a dream? Tell Brandie your story! Good luck to you.
