(Plus six cool gifts to help make 2009
YOUR most profitable year ever!)
I just figured out what’s been keeping you up nights.
You’ve been waking up in a cold sweat worrying about what you’re going to give me – Clayton Makepeace – this holiday season.
And why not? After all; I’ve given you nearly 600 zero-baloney articles packed with money-making insights, ideas and advice on this blog so far – nearly 300 articles this year alone.
And each one of those articles is jammed with brainstorms other online coaches charge a freaking fortune for – all for free.
I mean, when you think about how much time and money my staff and I invest to give you all this great free stuff — and especially about how much the help you get here will earn you every year for the rest of your natural life … WHO ELSE would you be shopping for right now?!
In my book, the fact that you’ve recognized the value The Total Package brings to your life — and that you want to thank me for it with a nice holiday gift — makes you a good person. (Not like folks who greedily snark up all the free stuff they can get and then complain when offered something to actually buy!)
And since you are obviously a quality individual … since I am NOT an easy guy to buy presents for … and especially since my mission here is to make your life easier; not harder … I’m going to solve your problem for you.
Now, if you’ve been reading The Total Package for a while, you probably already have some gift ideas for me. You know I love Grey Goose and Cohibas … $30,000 Harley-Davidsons and $130,000 Porsches. And the fact that you’ve actually considered giving me such thoughtful gifts touches my heart. Sincerely.
But frankly, I’m good in all those areas. Besides; there’s something I want from you that will give me more holiday cheer than all of those things combined – and it won’t cost you a red cent …
I want you to help me help more people.
It’s like a double-karma thing. You’ll help others by introducing them to The Total Package. And you’ll help me … by helping me help them. How can you possibly lose on a deal like that?
The best part is, my holiday gift won’t cost you a penny. In fact, I’ll even reciprocate – with up to six gifts I promise you’ll love (because they’ll make you money).
So what do I – Clayton Makepeace – want this holiday season? Three things, actually …
1. Make a video about The Total Package: Put your webcam to good use. Or, if you prefer, create a PowerPoint, then use Camtasia to record it along with your narration.
Explain why any entrepreneur, business owner, marketing exec, copywriter or other consultant who doesn’t read The Total Package is certifiably insane.
Prove your point by showing – as specifically as possible – how an idea or article has saved you time … saved you effort … made you money.
Then, post your video on YouTube.com and also post the link to your video in our blog comments below.
I’ll reciprocate by sending you a free copy of Steal These Secrets, Volumes 1 and 2 just for posting your video …
Packed inside these two volumes are 25 of my slam-dunk promotions – complete with red-hot headlines … compelling themes … and marketing strategies that worked like gangbusters to make my clients millions of dollars.
PLUS, you get a boatload of bonuses: Makepeace Under the Microscope … The Intelligence Briefing … an eye-opening "How I Do It" interview with yours truly … 206-Page Headline Swipe File … Swipe File Secrets of the Rich and Famous … and my Global MegaTrends E-mail Campaign swipe file – a whopping $718 value!
These response exploding volumes go for $394 in our online store, but they’re all yours, FREE – just for making a simple video.
And if yours is one of the two best, you’ll also get your choice of any product in our online store (Value: Up to $7,500).
2. Give the gift of The Total Package to everyone you know: I figure birds of a feather flock together. If direct response marketing is your thing, you probably know plenty of others in this game, too.
It would make me really, really happy if you’d take a few minutes to write a nice e-mail about how valuable The Total Package has been to you and include this sign-up link in your e-mail: http://www.makepeacetotalpackage.com/bonus/holiday-referral-signup.html
Then, open your contacts list and send your e-mail to everyone you think would benefit from the help we offer here. They’ll get four valuable reports just for joining us: 1) Why Your Advertising Never Makes Money … 2) The Eight Components of Irresistible Direct Response Offers … 3) How to Decide Where to Advertise and … 4) How to Write Killer Ads and Compelling Sales Copy.
(You should have received those reports when you subscribed to The Total Package. If by some chance you don’t have them, click this link to download the reports now.)
If you’ll post the text of your e-mail in the blog comments below, I’ll reciprocate by sending you a free copy of How to Challenge a Strong Control and Kick It To The Curb! …
Just pop this CD-ROM into your computer and watch over my shoulder as I transform four lukewarm promos into certified control-killers – and give you proven response-boosting techniques that’ll set a fire under your own promotions.
PLUS, you get the special bonus session – The 37 Most Valuable Marketing and Copywriting Lessons I’ve Ever Learned – a $99 value!
This 7 1/2 hours of video mentoring and the career-exploding bonus session sell for $346 in our online store, but they’re yours, FREE – and all you have to do is write an e-mail.
And if yours is one of the two best e-mails I see, you’ll also get your choice of any product in our online store.
3. Blog your brains out: Visit every home business, small business, entrepreneurial, copywriting and marketing blog on the Web and start or contribute to threads about how THEY can get great freebies by reading this issue. Tell your own story about how The Total Package has helped you – again, with as many specifics as you can.
Give us the link to your posts in our blog comments below and you’ll get a free copy of Double Your Profits in 12 Months or Less just for playing …
You’ll be able to instantly download this 234-page e-book which is jam-packed with practical, nitty-gritty tips, tricks and tactics – including 177 proven business-building secrets that have at least QUADRUPLED profits for my clients over the past 37 odd years.
PLUS, you’ll be showered with $227-worth of response-rocketing bonuses: Ad Writers Arsenal … Beat the Blank Page Blues … and 37 Proven Ways to Get Bigger Winners More Often.
You’d have to shell out $79 to get Double Your Profits and the bonuses from our online store, but they’re yours, FREE – in return for a quick blog post.
And if yours is judged to be one of the two most persuasive blog posts we see, you’ll also (you guessed it!) get your choice of any product in our online store.
Give me all three of these gifts if you can.
That gives you three different free gifts just for trying — plus six chances to win the product of your choice from our online store!
And by doing so, you’ll help me help thousands more people get their businesses, employees and families safely through these tough times.
Plus, you get to stop waking up in the middle of the night wondering how to thank me for The Total Package – not to mention, karma out the wazzoo.
Oh, one more thing: Martha just reminded me that she needs to know where to send your free gift. So this is what you need to do. When you submit your entry on The Total Package blog comments, shoot her a quick e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org Give her your full name, e-mail address, mailing address and the number of your Total Package blog comment post, and she’ll get your gift out to you as soon as possible.
But make sure you get your entries in before the deadline on January 12th. The big winners for each category will be announced on January 15th.
So what do you say? You in?
Yours for Bigger Winners, More Often,
Publisher & Editor
