John Carlton here...
If you're finally ready to kick your business and career up a few levels (where the money is staggering and the lifestyle options will blow your mind)...
... then it's finally time to surround yourself with other experienced and successful marketers and small business owners.
Join us for 2 days of brainstorming and masterminding...
And Come Home With An "Action Plan" you can put to use immediately.
My business partners and I have earned a fortune (and a rockin' global reputation) as professional copywriters and marketing consultants...
… and -- most importantly for you -- TEACHERS of everything necessary to make your entrepreneurial efforts bring home the Big Bucks.
We've been hosting similar meetings for over ten years now…
… and know how to ensure each attendee gets maximum value from their time and investment.
We've both attended many mastermind and brainstorming meetings over the years.
Most of those meetings are heavy on theory...
... and painfully lacking when it comes time to deliver specific advice that attendees can put to use.
Those meetings leave us hungry for a chance to dive deep into solving business problems...
… to create profitable, yet realistic and workable plans...
… instead of just shucking and jiving... tossing out a bunch of theory... without leaving anyone with specific steps to implement before the next meeting.
We dedicate time to you! Every attendee gets a full session as the center of attention, with the entire group entirely focused on your situation.
We bring every field-tested tactic, every secret piece of inside info, and every brilliant thought (from both inside and outside the box) to bear on one simple goal:
We show you how to:
It's our hands-on approach... dedicated to finding real solutions that WORK in the real world...
... that you can put into action immediately upon getting back to your office...
... that sets our mastermind & brainstorming meetings far apart from the others.
Now that I've explained what happens at every meeting... let me tell you what will be unique about our next meeting... And why you don't want to miss it.
At every meeting, the time set aside to focus on you and your business will always be yours to use as you like.
However, we've learned one of the ways we can best help our mastermind group members continue to improve their businesses, year after year...
... is to invite one or more special guests to every meeting...
... and have them present something on their particular area of expertise.
For example, we held a recent meeting in a brand new video production studio and, after working together on scripts and strategies, attendees had the opportunity to shoot marketing videos right in the studio. (And have them produced and edited by an experienced pro.)
In another meeting, the marketing layout designer for one of the largest direct response companies in the world did "Design Hot Seats" on the websites of every attendee who asked...
... instantly transforming them into hot, modern, enticing sites that scream "professionalism" and trust.
Further down this page, you'll find a list of just some of the Marketing Royalty and Legends who have sat in meetings over the years and helped multiply the profits of our members. Before you check out those names, let me tell you...
We'll be concentrating on the most overlooked step in kicking your marketing up a notch – your miserable copy.
It’s critical to know what to write, and how to write it, if you want to play with the Big Dogs. And we’ve got just the guest expert to give you INSTANT design mojo (if you want it).
We scored BIG this time :)
I am super-jazzed to have the leader of the highest-performing division of Agora Inc. – where“copy is king” – share what they’ve learned about attracting hot prospects and converting them into customers.
Joe Schriefer has agreed not just to attend, and partake in the masterminding and brainstorming…
… he’s also bringing in several of his hottest in-house copywriters…
… who will share the tactics and strategies they used to boost the company far beyond their competition.
You may not be familiar with Agora Inc. by name, but you have almost certainly seen their work. They're the "Big Dog", billion-dollar behemoth marketer and publisher in some of the most competitive niches in the world, including finance and health.
Look – I’ve been running around with the best direct response copywriters for over 35 years now (from Gary Halbert to Gary Bencivenga to Jim Rutz to Clayton Makepeace to anyone you can name)…
… and I’m always on the hunt for what’s working NOW in competitive online and offline markets.
And this opportunity to sit elbow-to-elbow with the most smokin’-hot copywriters in the game right now has me as excited as I’ve ever been.
You will WIN or DIE in your biz, depending on how well your copy performs. Whether it’s content, text, emails, video scripts, print ads or direct mail…
… if your copy sucks, then you’re sunk.
Because it won't be just Joe, his crew from Agora, and myself going over your copy and giving you specific and custom tips...
We want to bring as much sales and marketing firepower to every single meeting...
... so we've invited some of our long-time colleagues to join each meeting as co-hosts and contributors.
They are among the most sought-after and highly respected copywriters and marketing consultants on the planet.
They attend most of our mastermind meetings, giving you critical help with your marketing strategy.
In a meeting like this one, where we'll be focusing on improving your copy, there is nobody better than these folks at improving whatever copy you've got.
To get in the room or on the phone with any one of them typically costs small business owners several thousands dollars.
The last few meetings were game-changers for many members (cuz folks came away with actual usable marketing video we shot after the hot seats, and detailed design breakthroughs to increase readership and sales).
This April meeting will be just as much of a game-changer...
... especially if your copy blunders are costing you customers and moolah.
You'll come away with a new marketing plan bristling with fresh ideas, strategies and tactics...
... and …
You'll also learn how top marketers lure more customers in (and convert them) with the secrets of powerful copy tested in the most competitive and vicious markets in the world.
As always, we'll be holding the meeting in a small meeting room (perfect for these kinds of brainstorming masterminds)
Because everyone will get so much personal attention, there will be a limit of 10 attendees.
More than that and we would not have enough time to go deep into your business and offer specific suggestions you'll be able to put to work to increase sales and profits within 1-3 months.
My personal goal for every attendee, at every meeting, is:
For you to leave with 1-3 custom "Action Items" you will realistically be able to implement in 1-3 months.
There isn't any fine print. No catch or long-term commitment.
You are invited to apply to attend this amazing 2-day event, where a few small business owners will get specific, custom advice from myself, my long-time business partner, Stan Dahl, our co-hosts, and our special guests.
And, of course, you'll be learning from, and sharing best practices with, the other attendees.
If you're accepted, you can join us for just this one meeting, or become a full-member of this mastermind group. Whichever is the best option for you.
For today, the only commitment I'm asking you to make is to answer a few brief questions, and then schedule some time for a short phone call.
Because of the intimate nature of these meetings, my business partner Stan Dahl or I will get on the phone with everyone for a quick chat before their first meeting.
We need to be confident you're going to get exceptional value from this meeting.
We also need to be comfortable inviting you into our inner circle like this. That's part of our commitment to all of our current members.
Every attendee is expected to share openly from their business and life experiences. These meetings are true masterminds, where everyone commits to helping everyone else.
Before we allow anyone into the room, Stan and I have to be confident they are willing to contribute.
This type of commitment to helping each other is critical to making these meetings the smashing successes they always are.
We accept new business owners, as long as there is something in their background and experiences that will enable them to not just learn, but to share some of what they know.
Here’s what you need to do now to claim your seat:
Step #1: Enter your email address below.
Please do this right now. It would be a shame to miss this meeting because you got distracted and put it off. We do keep these meetings small -- that's the only way we can give so much time to each attendee.
Step #2: As soon as you enter your email address, you'll be taken to a page with a few simple questions.
We need you to spend a few minutes answering those questions before we can get on the phone or consider you for the group. The questions and the phone call are part of our quality-control process. It's how we ensure everyone in the room is qualified to be there.
Don't worry... we keep all your info completely confidential (as we do in the meetings, too).
Step #3: We'll review the information you provided and send you an email to arrange a good time for us to talk.
Think of that call as a 2-way interview. You'll have some questions for us, and we'll have some for you. The goal for both of us is to be 100% sure this meeting will be a profitable investment of your time and money.
On this call, we'll talk about the price of the 2-day meeting and your options for becoming a full member of the group.
This meeting isn't cheap, but it's probably a lot less than you're thinking right now.
Stan and I are looking for long-term relationships with a few clients.
We are very willing to WOW you at your first meeting before you commit to a full year of membership. Most people who attend one meeting want in for at least a full year. Fact is, most of our members stay in the group for several years, because they continue to get value.
Right now, your only commitment is to answering a few questions and a short chat on the phone.
Step #4: If, after talking, we both agree this meeting will have a major impact on the profitability of your business, my assistant will send you all the details and we'll be seeing each other in a few weeks.
That's all there is to it... Just enter your email address below and we'll move on to the next step.
As promised, once you've signed up to join us for this event or join our mastermind group...
... you'll get a FREE consulting call with me and my biz partner Stan Dahl.
These consulting calls go for $1,500 - $2,500, each.
We take on only 1-2 new consulting clients a month... but as someone we'll be working with face-to-face, your consulting call cuts to the front of the line.
We'll get right to work (before the next meeting) on solving the most pressing problems you're facing right now.
This call will give you an introduction to our problem-solving methods, ...
... leave you with up to 3 specific things you can start working on before the meeting.
Your free bonus consulting call will be just a sampling of the detailed effort we put into every member at every meeting.
We focus on specific issues, questions, and problems.
And we solve stuff. That’s what we do.
That’s why this small, elite mastermind has lasted 10 years now.
If you know this is for you, please don't put it off.
Enter your email address right now, and we'll be in touch soon.
I shared a little bit of the background of our co-hosts above.
Here's a little bit of information about Stan and I:
My career has gone down two major paths:
Early on, I was one of a handful of hotshot "A-List" copywriters in direct response, with a global reputation based on massive results.
However, during years of partnering with Gary Halbert and going deep into the entrepreneurial world alongside other legends like Jay Abraham and Dan Kennedy, I became more of a one-stop "problem solver"...
... quickly fixing the sticking points and profit-murdering missteps that plague small biz owners...
... while also transforming their advertising into something awesome.
The decades I've spent deconstructing problems for clients and finding solutions that work like crazy... over and over again in almost every business niche you’ve ever heard of... has given me a unique experience-based view of how to help you get where you want to go.
Stan Dahl brings 25 years of marketing and business process analysis and improvement to the table.
Before Stan and I joined forces, he specialized in bringing data-driven analytics and solutions to businesses big and small, located all over the world. (He was implementing “Big Data” solutions years before most business owners and CEOs had even heard of the concepts.)
These days he focuses on helping clients create and implement realistic and efficient marketing strategies and funnels.
We've been one phone call away from the beating heart of marketing for decades…
… so we lure insiders to our masterminds to share the good stuff (especially the moolah-producing secrets they rarely share with anyone else).
Here's a partial list of past Special Guests. These are the kinds of marketing wizards you'll get to learn from and hang out with once you join the Platinum Mastermind.mind Group:
Hear what our members (small business owners just like you) want to share with you about what John Carlton's Platinum Mastermind Group has done for their businesses.
"... one particular piece of advice that doubled what we paid to be in the group.
