I bet you knew this already.
You see, where a lot of people miss the boat is that they only hit the surface.
Let me explain.
When your prospects hit your sales page, most won’t take you up on your offer right off the bat. That’s just how marketing works.
Earth-shattering? Not really. I bet you knew this already too.
This is why you see the emphasis is on scooping up the “no’s” who don’t want to buy and putting them into your marketing funnel. Most of your money will be made in your marketing funnel. This is where your marketing system comes in.
“Think about it. Even if you’re the baddest of all marketing badasses, only around 10% (at most!) of the people who come into your funnel are going to buy from you right off the bat.
They might not have the money right now, it might not be the right time, they might not believe your claims of cat juggling heroics, whatever.
We both know that the vast majority of people who come into your sales funnel do not buy right up front. Them’s the facts. But 90% of our efforts are often focused entirely on that tiny little segment of people who are going to buy immediately.
…And we ignore the overwhelming majority of people who have come to our site, demonstrated that they’re interested our stuff, and haven’t bought yet.
Do that and you’re leaving 90% of your money on the table.“

System – All your components work together to give you the desired result. From the targeted lead capture page, to the messages within your autoresponder that leads to your list, to the products you promote within the system, the front-end sales to the back-end sales. They all work synergistically together to form a system and create income streams 24/7 on autopilot.
