I’m coming to you this month from seat 6E in the first-class cabin of flight AA1229 from San Diego to Dallas where I’ll catch a flight home to Tallahassee.
I’ve been traveling a lot this summer. There’s a lot of Retention Deficit Disorder out there, and I’m the guy subscription membership programs call to treat it..
We’ve had a tumultuous October with Hurricane Michael. Overall we were extremely lucky. We did spend several days without electricity or internet. Lots of trees fell in Tallahassee, luckily none of them hit my house or cars. The days without electricity gave us an opportunity to clean up.
This month, I have some personal travel. First, my wife and I are flying to Raleigh, North Carolina, for the FSU Seminoles versus NC State Wolfpack football game. My wife, Kory, graduated from NC State, so we’ll be catching up with a lot of her college friends while in town. The next week, Kory and I are traveling to South Bend, Indiana, for the FSU Seminoles versus Notre Dame Fighting Irish football game. I graduated from Florida State but have never been to a football game in the shadow of the Golden Dome.
After the football game weekend, I’m attending Ken McCarthy’s System Seminar Reunion. Ken is widely known as the first person to write about the commercial application of the internet. Yes, that’s right, that internet thing that birthed Amazon, Google, Facebook, and a million other commercial enterprises. Ken McCarthy was the pioneer who held the first conference on internet marketing.
All internet marketing courses have been derivatives of the original that Ken taught at his first “System Seminar.” Ken has been copied by the best, and it’ll be great to have the opportunity to connect with him and see everyone again.
My book, Retention Point: The Single Biggest Secret to Membership and Subscription Growth has been selling briskly. So much so that it became an Amazon Best Seller. I’ve been using Amazon advertising to promote my book, and it has enabled me to reach a lot of target customers.
It’s ironic; I wrote the book as a training tool for new clients and their teams. However, the book has turned into a great new client acquisition tool for me. The book, together with the Amazon advertising platform, has enabled me to reach people I never could have in any other way and convert them into clients.
If you have a book on Amazon and you’d like to know how I’m using the Amazon advertising platform, reach out for a call. I’d love to catch up with you, and it’ll only take 10–15 minutes to show you what I’m doing and how it works.
And last but not least, thank you! I am the luckiest man ever.
Because of you, I get to work with the smartest marketers in the world. As if that wasn’t enough, I also get to work with your teams. You create amazing marketing campaigns and deliver excellent products.
I’m proud that I can be a contributor to your team. The world of membership and subscriptions is a small one. Luckily, I know how to attract and retain members. And with that little bit of knowledge, I can be a big contributor.
Among what you’ll discover in my blog posts this month is a $651,958.00 free trial conversion sequence. Yes, $651,958.00! That’s what the improvement I created generates for my client, but only because he’s already doing so many smart things. I can plug in what I know and have a huge impact.
You have two months, and then we’ll be into 2019. As of this writing, I still have a couple of dates available in December if growing your membership and subscription revenue will be a 2019 priority for you. If so, let’s get it scheduled while we can.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Thank YOU for the opportunity to contribute to you and your business.
