Can you make more money by losing money?

Believe it or not this is possible.

You see, most people don’t understand that direct marketing is a maths game.

By knowing your numbers you can get very creative.

A good example of this is when you’re selling a front end product.

The purpose of your front end shouldn’t be to make any money at all.

Instead you want to LOSE money.

You do this by selling a cheap front end product and advertising it as much as possible.

This way you can make far more sales and grow your list quickly.

(You’re basically buying as many customers as possible.)

Once this is done only THEN do you start making things up on the back end.

This is a risky strategy.

To carry it out successfully you need to know your numbers…down to the very wire.

You need to know if you’re actually going to make things up on the back end.

If you don’t it’s possible to lose a LOT of money.

This idea is simple but powerful.

It’s something that a lot of people don’t understand.

But if done correctly it allows you to get maximum yield from your advertising campaigns…

…and also gives you an overwhelming advantage against your competition.
