The comments said I am stupid

Your stupid!

You can’t even spell?

How can somebody with bad grammar like you give advice here!

Believe it or not those were actual comments on posts which I wrote on the warrior forum back in 2008.

So you can imagine how much it knocked my confidence especially when trying to write sales pages.

However in 2009 I received an email informing me of spelling mistakes on my first sales page.

Did this bother me?

Actually I found it quite funny.

Why?

Because sometimes things don’t need to be perfect.

Let me explain.

The sales page in question “The YouTube Loophole” had just made me $6,000 in sales in a single week!

This just proves the point that things don’t have to be perfect.

Sometimes 80% is good enough…

I see a lot of marketers struggling because they seem to be taking months sometimes even years finishing off that final 20%.

In other words trying to get things perfect…

It’s more important to get something out there and start testing it Rather than trying to get it perfect…

In fact I still get emails today about blog posts and sales pages complaining about spelling mistakes…

I don’t let it bother me, if it makes money it’s good enough for me…

Right now I’m putting together a brand-new sales funnel to bring in new leads to my business.

I spent the last couple of days writing sales copy for the sales page…

This morning I was looking at the sales copy and was not happy with it..

My immediate thought was I need to rewrite some of the bullet points..

However I had to stop myself…

You see I found over the years it’s more important to get something out there and running as quickly as possible…

I can tweak things once I have things up and running…

The marketers who succeed in this industry, are those that can get things out as quickly as possible…

Like I said things don’t have to be perfect…

Who knows I might find that the current copy I’ve written works perfectly fine…

In which case, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it…

Test drive some of my new products:

Right now I’m running a marketing test and I’d love you to be part of it…

The Video Projector

About 10 years ago I used to have a video projector set up for watching movies..

This was an old school CRT projector….

You may remember those they were the ones with the three coloured lenses on the front of the projector..

Some people may even remember seeing these on Boeing 747’s back in the 80s..

Of course that was before there were video monitors on the back of everybody seats!!

However when my video projector finally died back in 2011 I never replaced it…

A couple of months back when I was cleaning out my storage unit I opened a flight case and found my workshop LCD projector…

This is a projector I use for my workshops mainly to projects PowerPoint slides…

Over the Christmas period I decided to test this projector…

I hooked up a Blu-ray player and projected it onto a white wall…

Okay it’s not quite as good as my old CRT projector but you know what it’s not bad…

So as a Christmas present to myself I purchased a 10 foot pop-up projection screen..

It’s so cool to be able to watch movies on the big screen again…

So last Saturday Dave and I sat down and watched the 4K Blu-ray version of 2001 a space Odyssey..

Wow I’ve never actually seen this movie on the big screen before!!

We are both completely blown away and almost speechless…

One funny fact…

At the beginning of the movie you see one of the characters in a shuttle craft on his way to the space station.

The inside of the shuttle craft looks a lot like a small aeroplane with lots of seats…

The seats all had video monitors on the back, just like the seats in a modern aeroplane today…

Kind of incredible really when you think that this movie was made in 1967!!

I’ve definitely caught the bug now for watching movies on the big screen…

I think I’m going to eventually buy a slightly better projector…

After all there are some movies which you should only ever watch on the big screen…

Have a great week whatever you’re doing,
