  1. Great info Robert. Would you recommend a Low Barrier Offer for a trial period? And are you a fan of the 30-day $$ back guarantee method? Thanks!

    1. Whenever possible I try to sell membership with a bonus item as an inducement to pay membership on day 1. Either that, or purchase a product that comes with a bonus of membership.

      I am not a fan of discounting your membership program as a trial. I’ve found that it encourages people who aren’t serious and devalues your program.

      I hope this helps.
