This week’s Idea: Go big, or go home!

with Neil Godin

An email. From good friend and colleague, Jonathan Christian. Inside, an offer. It isn’t confidential so here, have a look:

“Hey everyone – as you may have heard I have recently totally revised our Social Media 101 workshop to bring it right up to date with all the big changes at Google and Facebook – and we’re holding the next one this Thursday, here in Langley. We’ve sold a number of seats but we can still accommodate another 10 – and I want to fill the room – because we’re going to film the event and turn it into a DVD series.

“So, I have a great offer – totally exclusive to Marketing Dangerously members. The regular fee for the workshop is $397 – but you are invited to attend for just $200 – that’s more than a 50% discount.”

Jonathan called just as I finished reading his email. “What do you think?” he asked. My response? “Aw, Jonathan,” I cajoled (is cajoled really a word?) – “ya gotta go big, or you gotta go home!”

I urged him to “make certain” those 10 seats are filled – by making you an irresistible offer – and 50% just wouldn’t do.

“Agreed,” he replied, “I want those seats filled – so the fee for our Dangerous Marketeers, will be just $100 (plus tax, of course).”  Now “that” (for anyone who needs to understand social media marketing) is an irresistible offer.  Thank you, Jonathan.

Your call to action:

Jonathan’s workshops have drawn rave reviews in the past, but this version is even stronger. The workshop will heavily feature how to use Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn and the all-new Google+ to help you become social media savvy – while taking advantage of a great new (and inexpensive) way to grow your business online. And, as always, Jonathan’s workshop is 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

So. Here’s the link to register: http://snipurl.com/23wihau . (When signing up, use discount code  297offsm ).

And now the question: There are only 10 seats remaining (probably fewer than that by now).  Will one of them be sat on by you?

See you Thursday with our social media challenge.

Meanwhile, keep on marketing dangerously!
