I just published a video where I show you how I made $500,000 from one single blog post. Yes. From ONE blog post. It’s a long video. 84 minutes. It’s from a presentation I gave at a mastermind where many of the people in the room were advanced business owners. So, I know you’ll dig it. How I Got $500,000 From One Blog Post Now, I know this sounds like clickbait. And it sort of is.
So you finally want to get paid what you’re worth? You’re in the right place. How do some photographers get $7,000 for a wedding shoot… while others get $500 for the same job?

Well, you’re in luck.
Content is king. More so today than ever before. (Except in the first few seconds. Design is king then. If your design turns people off, they won’t even read your content). The question is, how can you never run out of content ideas? Or, better, yet… How can you never ...

Google (and other platforms) have waged war against websites that use intrusive popup boxes on mobile websites… It’s bad, too. Popups convert very well. But I understand why they hate them. So I created a new way to turn mobile website visitors into subscribers and customers. What else can you do? First, here’s the back story… According to Search Engine Land: * Showing a ...
So, the content game is changing. And people are scared. “Help! Facebook changed the algo. What can I do?” “My email open rates are declining and I don’t know what to do” “My website traffic is the lowest it’s ever been. Help!” It hit everyone like a ton of bricks. And you know what? It will get worse.
So, you want to create a product launch? I host a mastermind with business owners who do more than $500,000 a year in revenue and want to scale to multiple seven figures in revenue. And they recently asked me the same question: “What’s the best way to launch a product?” Here’s what I said… The Truth About Product Launches When most people launch a product, they often just say, “Hey guys.
So, you want to become a better copywriter? Or writer? Or maybe you want to become a better public speaker? You should watch this new video.

So I recently spoke at a conference in Las Vegas. In the Q&A a business owner told me about what she does. I had to interrupt… “But why does it matter?” And that’s where she stumbled. I’m not putting her on blast, because the truth is as simple as this: she’s good at what she does, but when it comes to describing what she does to someone she doesn’t know… in a concise ...

Let’s jump right in… Here Are The Top 10 Highest Open Rate Emails of 2017 Hi, I’m Derek Halpern, the founder of Social Triggers.
So, you want to know what converts better? $1,499 or $1499? Or in other words, you want to know if a comma impacts the way people perceive your price? Well… Here’s how selling works: First, you make an offer. Then, potential buyers look at the VALUE and the PRICE of your offer. And they compare the two: If the value is greater than the price, they buy.
So, I remember when I tried to sell someone one of my older, high quality domain names. At the start of the negotiation process, we were at a standoff… Should I make the first offer? Or should he? We traded several emails. None of us crossed the line. He wouldn’t tell me what he wanted to pay and I wouldn’t tell him my price.
So, I just got back from Asheville, North Carolina where I gave a speech to a bunch of people about how to make more sales. It was a 90 minute presentation. But luckily for you I brought my video guy to film the entire thing. And the best part? I have a 7 minute clip where I show you how you can instantly begin making more sales. The secret? Watch the video. It’s 7 minutes.
So, I made a mistake… A big mistake. A $100,000 mistake. And the most surprising part? I could have prevented it with one conversation with someone who was a little more experienced than me. Here’s what happened… My Big $100,000 Mistake A few years ago, I wanted to roll out a new paid traffic initiative at Social Triggers, and I had… I thought… a simple problem.
So, I went to Asheville, North Carolina to speak at an event. As I walked out of the airport, my Uber driver told me “12 Bones” is the best BBQ in Asheville. And it’s only open for lunch. “TAKE ME THERE!” It was me. And my video guy. We had all our luggage. But we didn’t have a choice. The place was closing soon. I walked into the restaurant and saw the writing on the wall. Here’s a pic.
So, I’m at an event, and someone came up to introduce themselves to me. Random guy: “Hi, my name is…” And then he shoved his business card in my mouth. Yes. IN MY MOUTH. He pulled his hand out of his pocket, and thrust it towards my face… business card in hand. I was annoyed. “Is this guy serious?” “Wow. Rude!” But I really can’t blame him.
So, someone wrote to me with a huge problem. I’ll call them Sam. Sam: “Derek, I just launched my new thing and no one is buying it.” Me: “Okay, let me ask you a question. How many people visited your offer page?” Sam: “Oh, i don’t know. Like 47 people! And still. NO buyers. 47 people. NO BUYERS! Can you help me fix me sales page?” Derek: “Dude.
So, I made $88.71 for each person who visited this one single page on my website. What page was it? My checkout page. Here’s a screenshot of what it looks like: It’s simple. It’s clean. And it works like a charm. Now let me breakdown why it works… And then show you how to make one yourself.
