When Facebook allowed their advertisers to leverage the interests, psychographic and demographic information they have been collecting on their 2 billion+ users, they changed the marketing and advertising world forever.
Now, individuals like you and me can target people based on their age, their income, their likes and dozens more intimate details that make the Facebook ads platform the best investment for advertising ever created.
This course is a 100% complete course that will take you from the very basics to the most advanced techniques... So whether you are a beginner advertiser or you have been here for years and are looking for more techniques and tricks to further increase your ROI, get the Facebook™ Ad IQ Academy, now!
This is the most current course on Facebook advertising that I have personally purchased and am studying!
In 2013 I launched my first Video Sales Letter based off of this forumula... It resulted in earning over $10,000 in one day.
Since then, I have continued to leverage video sales letters for our membership program, high ticket products, and our key evergreen products with massive success.
I can honestly say that a great video sales letter is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not millions to me personally... And the 3x system has been used to generate literally a billion dollars in sales by his clients (like Frank Kern, Eben Pagan, Ryan Deiss, Yanik Silver, etc).
Here's the kicker, tho... Writing sales copy and video sales letter scripts without a proven system and software to help is TERRIBLY DIFFICULT. And if you don't get the right persuasion techniques in the right order, your VSL will flop.
That is what makes the 3x system so powerful... Because it is a software and training package that takes you through the process one step at a time, you can't miss any of the conversion pieces and you are able to effortlessly keep everything in order to maximize your conversions.
If you really think about "The One Thing" that results in your online business making money or not, you will realize that your sales copy is the ultimate inflection point in your business... Which is why this software is so valuable!

Todd Brown is the go-to marketing funnel consultant for the best-of-the-best in internet marketing.
I appreciate his focus on the old-school concepts like the prospect's awareness level, the unique mechanism, and the big idea. Funnels that don't work right are missing these components and this is exactly what he teaches.
You may notice that on this page, there are very few courses recommended... Above is 'traffic', this is 'funnels' and below is 'email autoresponder' because all you need is to perfect these three working parts to create a highly lucrative online business.
It took me years of trial and error to figure out a lot of what is taught in this funnels course and honestly, I struggled for over 4 years with no funnel at all before ever getting clued in that the funnel was the trick.
Once we implemented our first funnel, with the web traffic we were receiving already, our site jumped over the six figure per year mark and we haven't looked back.
If there is one course and one expert on funnels worthy of your attention, it is Todd! I've even seen him live, I like his training so much.
Best part? You can get a full dose of Todd's style and his teachings through a free 4 part video training series, here
You obviously 'get' that the core of your online business is your email list. You also understand that the money is in your relationship with your list. So how do you quickly and effectively establish that relationship?
Enter the Autoresponder Madness course from Andre Chaperon...
It is rare that internet marketers all over the world will concede that there is one be-all-end-all course on a subject... But Andre Chaperon's Autoresponder Madness is just that.
This course is deep and goes into the exact ideas that made TV shows like Lost, 24, Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones successful and how to incorporate the kinds of psychological addiction those shows created into your emails so your audience doesn't just read your emails...
They are waiting on the edge of their seat, refreshing their Gmail hoping that you sent the next email so they can read it from start to finish!
When you have achieved this level of email marketing, your open rates go up, your engagement goes up, your income goes up and it all happens faster than ever before.
This course is deep and is for you if you are building your list but feel like you haven't really crafted the kind of deep relationship with your audience yet that results in a hyper-responsive list. Learn how to do just that, here.
Nowhere is the power of the story more evident than in Hollywood. Michael Hague is a professional script consultant who helps the biggest names and movies in Hollywood. He coaches screenwriters, producers, stars, directors on how to make their stories and characters more engaging for the viewers.
When Will Smith wasn't satisfied with the new Karate Kid script and how the 'hero' of the story didn't tug at the audience's heartstrings... He called Michael Hague! And those changes made that move an absolute HIT!
A few years ago, Michael got discovered by a handful of internet marketers and was brought into some high-end marketing seminars to coach internet marketers about how to leverage the power of story in marketing. From here, Andre Chaperon found out and started hiring him for coaching on his autoresponder sequences.
Shortly thereafter, Andre and Michael did a paid webinar together that completely changed my perspective on marketing and storytelling... I had always heard 'stories sell' but this was the first time I got a real formula to follow and it has revolutionized my main business incorporating this into my videos, blog posts, emails, and autoresponders.
You don't need to go through the Autoresponder Madness course before this one... Although I have received great value from both... This course is stand alone in the fact that the types of stories you learn about here will work at all levels of your content marketing and your copywriting, not just in your email autoresponders (but it will help those, too!)
If there was a 'secret weapon' for some of the best marketers out there, it is effective storytelling and you can learn how to become a great storyteller here.
Russell Brunson is a great marketer and potentially one of his greatest contributions to the marketing world is his Perfect Webinar system and scripts.
For anyone doing webinars, this is the 'must have' course that will lay out a very specific script, setup and close that creates amazing conversions on live webinars.
Personally, I have purchased to this course now and am studying it because my wife and I plan to being offering webinars here in the near future. With that said, I have very good friends in several different niches who are using this exact system and script with amazing results.
Webinars are best for selling products valued at $300 to $1000 and they have resulted in one of the most powerful leaps forward in marketing in a long time. It combines the power of platform selling with the ease of the web and results in a powerful experience for your visitors and often generates a significantly higher conversion rate than a traditional sales letter or video sales letter.
The feedback you are able to get in the comments section during the webinar also allows you the ability to tweak your approach, handle objections and adjust your product as needed, in real time, further helping you increase conversions through webinars.
