Default Wow! $800 a Week!

Just got a call from one of my "students" (single mom who was totally Desperate with 2 kids under 4 and husband who walked out)

I showed her my "Oil Change Coupon" program and she wanted to give it a try.

I went to 2 Auto Repair guys....1 North and 1 South. Asked if they'd be interested in a program to bring them MORE "Auto Repair" biz.

Told them I'd put together a "Free Oil Change" program where they'd provide 2 FREE Oil Changes .....to local residents. Then I told them tht because they were "Auto Repair Specialists".....when they did the Free Oil Changes....they were VERY likely to find Something Else on the vehicle that they could charge for.

They both agreed so.....I made up a "coupon" for "2 Free Oil Changes" at either of the 2 locations.....for $20.

Now.....most everyone has Twenty Bux and most everyone needs an Oil Change...so....I showed her what to do and what to say and.....sent her on her way....going door to door....up one side and down the other.

Within 20 minutes I received a call...."I Got my first Sale!" I responded with "Whopee CowPoopee!" and this morn she gave me the 4-day report (she only wants to "work 4 hrs a day and 4 days a week!" that's why THIS is el-perfecto for her.

Thanks for reading.....

Ooopps....just got an email asking a question;

I forgot to mention, with THIS program.....we do NOT bother with "Oil Change" Businesses like "Jiffy Lube" etc. There MUST be a REASON WHY businesses who can do "Oil Changes" would be willing to offer FREE Oil Changes!

The "reason" is....."THEY CAN DISCOVER OTHER THINGS THAT NEED ATTENTION, WHILE THEY'RE PROVIDING FREE OIL CHANGES!

"Other things" like.....TUNE-UPS.....etc!

So.....I do NOT tell my "students" to even bother with biznesses that ONLY do Oil Changes! Almost ANY Auto Repair Biz, that can do Oil Changes CAN.....FIND something ELSE that needs SERVICE!

Holy Camoly.....the first time I did this I had EVERY auto repair guy I talked to WANTING.....TO BE IN MY PROGRAM! So....getting Auto Repair biz to agree to this is.....automatic......and.....walking up to a house....ringing the doorbell... and when someone appears at the door.....you SHOW your COUPON ( for 4 FREE Oil Changes......4 FREE Oil Changes for a year for $20!) ...you kiddin' me! OVER $100 worth of Value for 20 Bux?

Excuse me......right now.....there are 93 MILLYUN Americans OUT-OF WORK!

The "so-called" UN-employment Stats we are given from our "Honest Media and Gummit" claim 5.5 %......what a JOKE!

If YOU are one of the "Dummies" (imho) who believe this.....Join the Millyuns of "TAKERS" who are NOT dependent upon THEMSELVES.for their INCOME, but....looking forward to their Next CHECK from.....Uncle Sam!

HOWEVER.....remember that YOUR GUMMIT CHECK IS COMING FROM DA GUMMIT .....FOR ONE REASON.....the TAXPAYERS of this country have PAID.... (including Me, Myself and I).....also known as the "Upper Crust"for YOU to be able to collect your monthly check...and....the next time you get in a Protest Line (against "Those RICH people").....understand ONE thing.....it is the RICH, who are PAYING FOR YOU!

Excuse me.....I have FOUR children (out of 6) and 6 Grandkids (out of 8) who are having a "rough time" EARNING MONEY in the "OBAMA REGIME"!

Don Alm.....ALWAYS been depentent upon ONE person or thing.....MYSELF!

Hi Don,

One thing I really like about your posts is you give the psychology of what's going on, too... And why it works!

You know what? One day, some university somewhere should give a "sales psychology" course... And the textbook could be all of your posts!

This is clever. And win/win... Customer gets a free oil change, and I'm sure a good percentage of those will convert to paying customers...

Great idea!

Best wishes,

Dien

I forgot to include an Image of our "Car Care Card". Here's one we started with. This one was 8 Free Oil Changes over 2 yrs at 4 Auto Repair biz for $50.

We've since dropped to 4 Oil Change over 12 mos at 2 Biz for $20.

Hi Dien....I've put my "psychology" stuff , along with 50 of the projects I've done.....in my Midas Reports, which I'm thinking about UpDating and offering for sale...again.

I stopped selling it about 5yrs ago and.....with the TRUTH of what our economy is REALLY like ....93 Millyun who've stopped looking and are NOT being counted in the UN-employment stats....and 2 of my kids who have a College Education BUT.....can't find a job in their field.
