Our next Platinum Mastermind Group meeting will be in late January. We'll have a different "special offer" and primary focus. To learn more and get on the waiting list, enter your email address down below. Thanks.

John Carlton & I are hosting a small, one-time marketing event at a professional video studio...

You'll work with a team of marketing experts... who will quickly solve your most pressing marketing challenges.

And then, if you like...

You'll record the best darn marketing video you've ever shot....

... and take it home with you.

All in just 2 action-packed days.

* Fix Every Marketing Problem * Brainstorm Fresh Ideas *
* Clarify & Meet Goals * Get Implementation Help *

Immediate, massively-experienced, and personalized help for you and your biz, laser-focused on solving everything that's holding up profits, ruining your passion, or keeping you and your business from moving confidently to the next level of wealth and happiness.

Plus: Before the event... to be 100% sure you're ready to take full advantage of this opportunity... we're tossing in a FREE private consultation call worth $2,500.

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 in Phoenix, AZ for 2 days of brainstorming and masterminding...

And Come Home With An Actual Marketing Video You Can Use Immediately.

We've 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 many years 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.

How Will This Meeting Be Different?

This meeting will be different because not only will you come away with a new marketing plan...

... you'll also have a chance to shoot some professional video during the meeting.

This means you'll have a new and improved marketing strategy... AND a valuable resource to help bring it to life.

At This Meeting,
We Will Dedicate Time To YOU

At all of our meetings... every attendee gets a full session as the center of attention, with the entire group focused ONLY 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 -> Fixing Whatever Is Holding You Back.

We show you:

  • How to fix the immediate problems causing you pain...
  • How to shore up the weak parts of your current biz plan so you're completely clear on what to do NEXT...
  • Where to find better resources, tech help, networking possibilities, and the best tactics known to the group, plus...
  • How to shake off the bad parts of being an entrepreneur, so you can get busy enjoying the fame, wealth and happiness you deserve.
  • Help you find your core business problems,
  • Bring every shred of personal experience and professional savvy to brainstorm better ideas, and
  • Come up with practical, solid, results-getting options.

It's this 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.

It's mind-blowing how much you will accomplish when you know exactly what your NEXT STEP is going to be...

... because your new ideas are actually cemented inside of a PLAN.

The Details

Let me tell you exactly how this one-time meeting will work:

We'll be holding the meeting in Phoenix, AZ at the office and studio of Richard Miller.  He and his crew film the live events for top marketers like Jeff Walker (Product Launch Formula) and Eben Pagan.  Richard also produced and filmed our Simple Writing System training videos and all of our live Action Seminar events.

He knows how to make you relaxed and look great on camera, even if this will be your first time in a professional studio.

Because everyone will get so much personal attention from John Carlton and our co-hosts, 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.

That's always our goal for every attendee at every one of these meetings -- Every attendee leaves with 1-3 custom "action items" they will realistically be able to implement in 1-3 months.  By doing this, we ensure your investment in this meeting is quickly earned back and every meeting is profitable for you.

While you can use your personal time to get input on any aspect of your marketing, most attendees will be focused on using video to capture leads at this meeting.

Every attendee will walk away with 5-10 minutes of high quality, pro-level video for whatever they need.

Most likely, that will be something you'll use to make your Facebook or landing page more effective.  Whatever your customer's "first contact" is with you.

We'll provide a simple template you can use for your video script and, after learning more about your business and marketing funnel, help you write what you'll say in minutes.  (I've done this with many marketers before.  It's fun and it works.)

We'll show you ways to use video to establish your credibility and motivate your prospects to continue to your website, signup for your free trial or course, or whatever makes the most sense for you.

Side Note: If you want to shoot more video in a professional studio with an experienced producer, we can arrange an insider discount for you with Richard and his studio.  You can come into town a few days before the meeting or stay a few days after and film more promotional videos, or even a new product.  I can give you more details about this when we talk.  It's a killer deal and because there are just a few time slots, it's only available to folks who attend this meeting.

The Fine Print

There isn't any fine print.  No catch or long-term commitment.

You'll get to attend an amazing 2-day event, where a few small business owners will get specific, custom advice from John Carlton, myself, and our co-hosts and special guests.  And of course you'll be learning from and sharing best practices with the other attendees.

If you like this meeting as much as I expect you will... and you see how profitable our meetings are for all of our attendees... we can talk about working together in the future.  Either by private coaching or by you attending other meetings like this one.

For today, you're not committing to anything beyond attending this one-time 2-day event.

Actually, for today, all you're committing to is a short phone call.

Because of the intimate nature of these meetings, I get on the phone with everyone for a quick chat to make sure I'm confident you're going to get exceptional value from this meeting, and to make sure I'm comfortable inviting you into our inner circle like this.  Part of our commitment to all attendees is everyone in the room is worth learning from.

We do accept new business owners, but I want to be sure there is something in their background and experiences that will enable them to not just learn, but to share some of what they know.  This type of commitment to helping each other is critical to making these meetings the smashing successes they always are.

Are You Ready To Join Us?
Here's How...

The process is easy...

Step #1:  Enter your email address below.

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:  You'll be taken to a page with a few questions I'd like you to answer.  Besides your phone number (which I need to call you), I'll also ask a few questions about your business so we can hit the ground running on the phone call.  I want to take as little of your time as possible. Knowing something about you before we get on the phone helps.

Don't worry...  we keep all your info completely confidential (as we do in the meetings, too).

Step #3:  I'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 me, and I'll have some for you.  The goal for both of us is to be 100% sure this meeting will be the most profitable investment of time and money you've made in a long time.

On this call we'll talk about the price of the 2-day meeting.  This meeting isn't cheap, but it's probably a lot less than you're thinking right now.  John Carlton and I are looking for long term relationships with a few clients.  You're not committing to anything besides the meeting.  We're committing to WOW-ing you during this meeting so you'll want to keep working together.

Step #4:  If, after talking, you and I 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 Phoenix 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.

Extra Bonus If You Act NOW!

As promised, once you've signed up to join us for this 1-time masterminding / brainstorming / video shooting event...

... my assistant will schedule a full 1-hour phone call consulting session for you with John Carlton and myself.

These consulting calls go for $2,500.

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.

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, and...

... make sure you're ready to get maximum value from this event.

This bonus alone is worth the price of admission... so if you know this is for you, please don't put it off.  Enter your email address right now and I'll be in touch soon.

Who The Heck Are John Carlton & Stan Dahl?

You probably wouldn't be on this website if you haven't heard of us before.  Maybe you've seen us speak at a marketing event?  Maybe a colleague or business partner recommended us?  Or you may know us from our Simple Writing System Coaching Program.

John Carlton Platinum Mastermind GrupJohn Carlton's career has gone down two major paths:

Early on, he was one of a handful of hotshot "A-List" copywriters in direct response, with a global reputation based on massive results.

However, during years partnering with Gary Halbert and going deep into the entrepreneurial world alongside other legends like Jay Abraham and Dan Kennedy, he 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 he's 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 him a unique experience-based view of how to help you get where you want to go.

Quickly... and often using resources you already have at your disposal.

Stan Dahl Platinum Mastermind GroupMy name is Stan Dahl.  I bring 25 years of marketing and business process analysis and improvement to the table. Before Carlton and I joined forces, I specialized in bringing data-driven analytics and solutions to businesses big and small, located all over the world. (I was implementing “Big Data” solutions years before most business owners and CEOs had even heard of the concepts.)  These days I focus on helping my clients create and implement realistic and efficient marketing strategies and funnels.
