Dear Services Provider:

In 1982, I quit my corporate job to try and make it on my own as a freelance copywriter.

That year, despite the fact that my clients seemed to be happy with the service I provided to them, I made only $39,000.

I called my friend SR -- an older, much more successful copywriter -- and I asked him, "What am I doing wrong?"

He then revealed a simple but powerful secret to me ... a profound truth about business that totally transformed my career.

I call it a "secret" because it's precisely that.

Most service providers truly don't know or understand this simple fact.

And many of those who do know the secret ignore it, because it clashes with their view of the way the world should work.

But I'm not interested in the way the world should work. I'm interested in the way it does work.

And the way the world works ... at least when it comes to the way people buy services ... is the harsh reality that this principle reveals.

Within a year of discovering this secret, sales of my copywriting services more than doubled ... and within two years, were more than triple my first year's earnings.

Here's the secret SR told me that day, decades ago:

"Bob, it's all well and good that you provide clients with quality service. But so do a lot of your competitors."

"The fact is this: those who make the most money selling their services in any field are not necessarily the best at their profession or craft ... they are the best at marketing and selling their services to others."

What this means to you is that it's not enough to be good or even great at what you do.

You have to be great at convincing others that you are the one they should hire instead of your competitors.

When I learned this, I didn't stop trying to improve my skills, master my craft, learn more, or provide better service to my clients.

But, taking his advice, I did spend the next few years figuring out ... and then refining ... a methodology for selling more of my services, to more and bigger clients, for larger fees.

The truth about why clients buy services can make you rich!

My friend SR was right..

Those who make the most money in any field, industry, or profession are not necessarily those who have the most knowledge, are most experienced in their craft, or sell the highest quality service.

No, those who make the most money, charge the top fees, and are constantly in demand are those who are best at selling and marketing themselves!

You may not like hearing this.

I know I didn't ... because it clashed so violently with my view of the way things ought to be.

I figured that, if I was the best at what I did, I would attract more business than I could handle, be constantly busy, and make a small fortune.

But as I told you, when I put that theory to work in my first year as a freelance copywriter, I earned only $39,000.

However, as soon as I put my 5-step "Service Selling" Process to work ... the same process I want to help you master ... my income increased dramatically.

Within 2 years, I was earning over $100,000 a year ... then $200,000 ... $300,000 ... $400,000 ... $500,000 ... $600,000 ... and along the way, became a self-made millionaire, selling only my services, while still in my 30s

This year, I am on track to crack the $700,000 mark -- and others using my 5-step "Selling Your Services" Process are making even more.

Ironically, there is more competition in copywriting today than when I started ... there is, in fact, more competition in almost every conceivable service ... yet, thanks to my battle-tested 5-step "Selling Your Services" Process, I make more money every year.

That's because the competition, good as they may be, does NOT know how to sell and market their services successfully.

And that's where you can gain an enormous advantage over your competitors - and out-sell, out-market, and out-earn them all year long ... stealing away the prime clients and plum projects that they want, but you'll get.

Listen to Selling Your Services today, start stealing business away from your competitors tomorrow.

I know you're busy, don't have much time to read, and probably have a stack of books you've been meaning to get to sitting on your nightstand.

That's why I produced the new edition of Selling Your Services as an audio program..

Even thought it's packed with business-building selling techniques, you can listen to the entire program in less than a week while you drive around in your car.

If you're in a hurry, you can listen to the whole program in just one day. Set aside this Saturday or Sunday -- and start outselling the competition first thing Monday morning!

For, once you master my sure-fire 5-step "Selling Your Services" Process, you will be able to:

  •   Generate more leads and inquiries for your services than you could ever hope to handle ... permanently tipping the supply and demand ratio for your services in your favor.
  •   Stand out from all the competition in your industry -- and offer clients such enormous additional value that you win out over your competitors almost every time.
  •   Cause your prospects to want to hire you with such intensity that objections either vanish - or if they don't disappear, no longer prevent potential clients from pulling out their checkbooks.
  •   Charge and command premium fees ... up to double or triple what you and your competitors are getting today ... with clients happy to pay whatever price you ask.
  •   Eliminate fear and anxiety when talking with prospects and following up leads ... gain incredible confidence in yourself and the value of your services ... and develop a self-assured attitude that attracts new business like a magnet.
  •   Produce such an incredible demand for your service that clients will book you months in advance ... and wait to do their project until you become available.
  •   Create such incredible customer satisfaction that clients flood you with reorders, repeat business, and referrals ... boosting the profitability of your service business to unprecedented levels.
  •   Increase your personal income by $50,000 ... $100,000 ... even $250,000 a year ... and become a self-made millionaire or multi-millionaire within the next few years.
