Simple Writing System Express Course
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 Express Course are meant to be completed in order.)
I love reading your takeaways and "ahas". That’s exactly why John Carlton designed the SWS Express Course – to show how easy (and fun) success can be when you have the right map.
And now, it's time for the most important part of your business...
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…
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?
5. Write it all out in the comments section...
6. And I'll hit you back with some feedback.
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."
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. Go back to Lesson 1 now, and do the exercise. And then Lesson 2.
I'll be spending most of my time here today, but I'll try to jump back to the Lesson 1 or Lesson 2 exercises and give you some feedback and tips if you post today.
In any case, you will find all of the replies I've made so far. I think you'll get a lot of value out of reading the comments on both pages.
