Since we’re coming up on the biggest day of the year, I thought I’d take a rest day today and not work so much.
What’s the biggest day of the year? Ballantyne’s Day, of course, and it’s happening this Friday…and I have a lot to prepare for it.
And so while I rest, Mikey Whitfield subs in with this powerful launch lesson. It’s a system that worked so well for him that you can just print it out and follow along for your own.
Over to you Mikey “Pancakes & launches will make you rich & happy” Whitfield for another BIG lesson.
The Follow-Along Videos Launch Formula
By Mike Whitfield
I just tallied the numbers for my Workout Finishers 2.0 program promo and I’m pumped. It’s come a long way since my promotion of the original program in October of 2011.
Total Launch Sales of Workout Finishers 2.0 – 3,030
And thanks to Mike Geary’s email promotion a couple of weeks before the launch, I’ve sold a grand total of 4,141 copies of WF 2.0!
Fortunately, I did a test promo of this product in March (without the follow-along videos) and I was able to see what worked (and what didn’t). I had data and one of the improvements I wanted to make was to have a better final day swipe email for affliates.
You see, there are people on the fence that have hundreds of objections going on in their head. They can’t quite see the value of your program and they are “gun shy” because they don’t want to part with their money… yet.
The final day gives you a chance to overcome their objections.
It has to be more than just “it’s on a discount today”.
I saw Craig Ballantyne do this with his Turbulence Training 2.0 and I modeled it for my readers and my final day was a grand slam for his program. You can imagine the power of what this can do for your own readers for your own products.
Before we get to that, I wanted to deliver more valuable content to my own readers as well as my affiliates, too. That included a full follow-along video on Day 3. That was an improvement for sure.
No, it wasn’t my idea. I just modeled what Adam Steer did for his affiliates the week before with Tyler Bramlett’s CT-50 system. It’s easy content to send your readers.
Side note – Don’t try to figure this out. Just plug in the video at the top of the sales page and have your tech rep create an affiliate link for that page.
In a nutshell, here is the formula I followed and then you’ll see what I did for the final day email. No matter what your niche may be, you can certainly model something like this for your own promos.
Day 1 – TWO Emails
Email 1 – How the program is different and is complimentary to any existing program with a mention of the fast action bonus
Email 2 – Sense of urgency and focusing on the fast-action bonus
Day 2 – “Outside the Box” Content
For day 2, I wrote a “4 Sneaky Ways to Use Finishers” content piece that got people to realize that they can use finishers for more than just a cool way to finish their workouts. There were “outside the box” advantages to finishers that I wanted to point out to prospects that added more value to the program.
Day 3 – Follow-Along Video
Even if you don’t have a fitness product, you can use this as great content. Let’s say you sell real estate and you sell, “44 Secrets to Sell More Houses” and they come in video lessons.
Give one away. Let your prospect know what they are getting with a taste of your actual program while showing them the value. Talk about how this is just ONE of your secrets, etc., etc.
So, on day 3 for me, it was a full follow-along finisher at the top of the sales page so the prospect could get a little “flavor” of the program.
Day 4 – TWO Emails
These are the “top 9 reasons” portion of the email that got people off the fence. I tried to overcome objections in the morning email. It’s a longer message, but it overcomes hesitation.
And hey, this was REALLY fun to write.
In the PM email is when you remind them of the deadline and push the sense of urgency while letting them know what they are missing out on. With the PM email, “sell the click”.
Using this approach, I had more sales from my own list on the final day than I did the first day, and the first day had a fast-action bonus.
Here is the “9 reasons” portion of the email – feel free to model (because after all, I modeled it after Craig Ballantyne’s TT 2.0). It has it all…
a) Social proof (with testimonials)
d) Benefits the prospect may have not realized and more…

# 3 – The Most Unique Set and Rep Schemes You’ve Ever Seen So You Get Insane Results

… all without any fancy equipment. Plus, Brian and Mikey will show you modifications with every exercise, too!
