  • The problem with slapshot marketing. (9:19)
  • The essence of direct response marketing – getting renewals is much more exciting because it means you deliver what you promised, you created an environment that people want to stay in. (10:25)
  • O-to-O-to-O and toggling between the two. Offline to Online to Offline. (14:31)
  • The audience will tell you if your marketing program works, or if it doesn’t. If you’re looking for feedback on what you’re doing, direct response marketing is the only way to go.  (28:10)
  • No direct response marketing business can survive without repeat business. (48:13)
  • Living your legacy > waiting for your legacy. (1:04:02)

"We’ve tried a couple of other membership tools that were part of packages that we’d invested in. But nothing can compare to WishList Member. I know that there’s a lot of cool stuff out there that people have been building over the years. But when it comes to customization, if you use WordPress, you can’t touch this. Obviously, I’m super biased, but we’ve made millions of dollars because of this product."

I have moved [WishList Member] into my top list of options for people. The new WishList Member packs a punch! And the price for WishList Member makes it a fantastic offer.

WishList Member integrates with the tools I use TODAY. And they’re so eager to integrate with tools that are coming out. It’s amazing how they do it actually. If I was going to be buying a membership plugin, today… for me, I would go with WishList Member.
