John Carlton's
Pint of Beer Challenge
Lesson #3 - Close The Deal

You’ve made it to the home stretch!  You survived Lesson #1 and Lesson #2...

(If you haven't looked at those lessons, please do. Just like in the full Simple Writing System, the lessons in this Pint of Beer Challenge express course are meant to be completed in order.)

And now, it's time for the most important part of your business...

Getting Paid.

You won't stay in business long if you can't Close the Deal.

Yet it's one of the biggest blocks I find business owners stumbling over. Let’s take care of that right now.

Here’s our man, Mr. Carlton with three specific tips…

Good schtuff!

Now you know your ABCs. Always Be Closing.

And just like the last two lessons... it's your turn now.


1. You've watched the video

2. Think about what you can do to reverse risk

3. Can you map out the exact process by which money gets into your hands?

4. What can you add to your offer to boost value?

Teaching this course to over 1000 people, we've learned it's not uncommon for people to get tripped up on #4, "What you can add to boost value?".

Don't worry, we got your back.

Here are some ideas for you (courtesy of my colleague, Colin Chung)...

If you took a look at this list and said to yourself, "That's fine for info-products and high level services like consultants... but my business is different."

THINK AGAIN!

That’s enough from me for now. I'll let you at it.

P.S. If you haven’t done the exercise from Lesson 1 or Lesson 2, yet... you really ought to.

John Carlton's Simple Writing System was designed with an internal logic where you go from step 1 to step 2 and so forth.

Skipping steps can really hurt you in your copy training.

I'm serious. Do 'em in order.

P.P.S.  As soon as you've finished Lessons 1-3, and you're ready to "bring it all together" and create a Pretty Darn Good Ad...

... all in what could have been about as long as it *should* take you to enjoy a pint of beer...

... head over the final Pint of Beer Challenge lesson.

$340,000 in 7 Days

"I started working for internet marketer Russell Brunson as a full-time copywriter and had only written a handful of letters up until that point. He asked me to write a sales letter for our 12-Month Internet Millionaire launch -- my first major launch. I was a little nerved up and repeatedly referred to John's course for guidance while writing the letter. Thanks to implementing the quick-start copywriting secrets John revealed in his course, the letter ended up pulling in $340,000 in 7 days.

If you remotely care about becoming a better copywriter and marketer, you need to get your hands on John's materials before your competition does."

Sold Out The Show

"You inspired me to write a new pitch to my house list, using your tactics... and it generated a near-DOUBLE response rate (over 203 requests in under 24 hours, at $495 a pop). Sold out the show."

"Quitting My Cushy 6-Figure Job"

"Our investment education business went from $50k a year in sales to over $200k in six months, thanks to John Carlton (and a hot webmaster from Houston). Thanks to what I've learned, I'm quitting my cushy six-figure a year job to go full-time in this new business!"

John Carlton is a world-class copywriter, teacher, and trainer.

He doesn't just tell you how to do it. He doesn't just show you how to do it. He involves you so you learn and you burn those ideas into your mind so that you pick up his strategies and techniques... and the way to apply the psychology of world-class copy.

Most copywriters just write about writing copy. John shows you how to get deep... How to bury your mind into the mind of your prospect.

I want to thank John Carlton from the bottom of my heart. I give John my highest endorsement.

.One Tip, One New Car

"On your advice, I edited my copy using your 'Action Verbs'. This killer strategy ALONE allowed me to buy a new car (for cash) after the first campaign!"

100% Right With Just A Glance

"It's scary how exactly on target you were with your advice based on reading just a few pages of our sales letter. You were 100% right. We've now made over 1,000 sales, captured wonderful customer feedback (as you advised), and are establishing national distribution."

Stacey MorgensternStacey MorgensternHolisticMBA.com

"John promises a lot in the SWS. You get 200%. I don't even know how to calculate the ROI on this one. I am only half way through the course and one specific tactic I've used this week has generated at least $2,000 in passive revenue - and that was the FIRST time I tried it!"

Ken GlickmanKen GlickmanFormer Vice President of Marketing and Sales, Boardroom, Inc.

"Great copywriters are proven because consumers vote with their money. That's why guys like John Carlton are so expensive, and so valuable. This is seriously important information for your business. There are only a handful of writers in John's league. I read his book as soon as I got my hands on it."

Lorrie MorganLorrie MorganRedHotCopy.com

"When my copywriting business was operating in the red, I bit the bullet and invested in John's stuff. Know what? I started making money. Lots of it. The subtle tweaks and step-by-step system I learned from John shot conversion rates through the roof. And I confidently raised my fees by 60% because of everything I learned from him... and my fees continue to rise."

[Disclosure: Lorrie has turned into such a successful copywriter and consultant that she's become a frequent Simple Writing System's Coach.]

"Over 6 figures/year into my pocket."

"For me... Copywriting was my lacking skill...

I never knew how to write effective copy, and John you've done a GREAT job... the SWS blows away any "system" I've seen in a long time. It's pretty much idiot proof.

To top it off, my motivation after this course has never been so high... Since starting it I've sold 2 new franchisees (which adds over 6 figures/year into my pocket). I'm starting to blast off writing follow up sequences....I've also finalized my entire franchise manual for all of my stores, and my web guy is starting to build a new website for my retail stores and will use your copywriting to make it smash the competition as well as build an avenue through the site to franchise even more...

I can't thank you enough... this is a program geared for REAL business minded people... it's the real deal... not some fancy, full of fluff, way of repackaging old basic marketing. Thanks John!"
