“Business owners – what keeps you awake at night? Whatever it is – I’d like to help”

“Have you ever left a restaurant wondering why you ordered so much?

I know I have.

You order with good intentions – but you literally can’t fit in everything you’d like to.

A lot like life, really. And that’s why I’ve launched this new site. Let me explain.

Over the years, I’ve created a huge amount of marketing material: videos, PDFs, case studies and Q&As.

I’m hugely biased, naturally. But I believe these little gems will help you solve any marketing conundrum – and come out with a profit. So a while ago I crowbarred them in to a membership site.

But it all went wrong because of one disastrous factor I had overlooked: lack of time.

Lots of people subscribed. But hardly any – and I mean this – used all that material. In fact, most subscribers watched less than 30 minutes of video a month. They just didn’t have the time.

“Got a question? Ask me!

Some poor souls paid happily each month and never logged in – a classic case of other people’s money – like their bosses’ – I suspect.

In my younger days, I would have been perfectly happy with this arrangement. But not now. The biggest thrill – and pleasure – I get is teaching.

So I wondered what I could do.

Give it all away perhaps? Not a chance: who values free information? Though I concede it’s smart to give some away.

Lower the price? This seemed obvious to me. At my age I far prefer the people who want to learn but can’t afford to, rather than the people who can, but don’t.

Short on time?

But there’s a much bigger problem: the thorny issue of subscribers actually using what’s in there.

Well, that seemed obvious to me as well.

After decades of giving seminars and mastermind groups, you get a feel of what people are after, what’s useful, and what’s not.

So I’ve recorded hours of new content – but with a difference:

It’s the stuff I’d want to know if I was learning.

It all comes in short videos – from 5 minutes to 20 minutes, max.

So you really can dip in and dip out.

Each month you’ll get 1 hour of these little nuggets, as well as access to what I call ‘the vault’, which consists of all the videos and PDFs from the old site. But then I thought, what can I add to make it even better value?

And I just thought of ‘Ask Drayton’. Ask me a reasonable question and I’ll reply in person (let’s not get carried away now, ask me to write a complete marketing plan and I’ll tell you to bugger off).

Questions like this:

“Dear Drayton,

This may seem absolutely bloody ridiculous. But since you asked for questions, I thought I’d fire this one in.

If you had the chance to go back in time and tell three secrets (maybe about achieving success, making big money, being happy, living well… whatever… but you can only pick 3) to your 18-year-old self, what would they be?


I thought it a very good question. Here’s my reply:

“Not ridiculous at all, Aaron.

1. “Aim for the top. It is less crowded there” – General De Gaulle. You can probably do better than you think. “The great problem with the mass of men is the poverty of their desires” said someone.

2. Study – and especially study people, because that’s all you’re going to have to deal with for the most part. Ignorance is the greatest enemy of progress.

3. Don’t give up. Success may not be round the corner, but you’ll never know unless you keep going.”
I am not sure if I should have made some comments about grammar. But I bet a lot of people have the same questions in mind.

If my replies struck a chord with you, then I firmly suspect you’ll get a lot more out of this site than it’ll cost you.

What’s more, I’ll archive all the questions, too.

Of course, I’m biased, but with an hour’s new content every month (broken down in to short, sharp, videos), your questions answered personally by me, and an Aladdin’s cave of marketing gold (the vault), all for a monthly subscription of $29, I think it’s an absolute steal.

What’s more, you can cancel anytime. Cancel the same day you join if you like.

In month 1, with brand spanking new, bite sized content, I cover:
What to spend your marketing money on. When everyone is zigging, it’s sometimes smart to zag.
How a little bit of planning can go a long way. I’ve always surprised myself , and my financial director, when I take the time to plan.
Money squandered by the lazy. I see this time and time again and it drives me insane.
How to avoid vampires that suck away your writing substance. These ghouls still keep me awake at night.
Two roads to copy disaster. And they are not what you think.
Why people really respond. It’s all about them…
A great formula for sales letters and landing pages. As I said, I’m biased, but this is worth the subscription price on its own.
Time is money. Especially so with copy.
The 5 elements of success. Only four are needed, but the fifth helps.
What we can all learn from Leonardo da Vinci. A genius tells you how all marketers should think.
The market stages. Critically important – but often overlooked. Don’t make this mistake and make things unnecessarily hard for yourself.
But never mind that. One demonstration is worth more than a mountain of promises. So here’s a snippet from the first month:

Still not convinced?

If you’re serious about studying marketing – I’ll bet the shirt on my back you won’t find a better resource than ‘the vault’.

But remember, the vault isn’t the main event.

Every month you’ll also get one hour’s worth of brand new content, just like the video above.

And it’ll be on a subject I know will have an impact on your business. Because these principles work any business – large or small, in any country, no matter what you sell, or what it costs, whether it’s a product or a service.

It’s the stuff I wish I was spoon fed when I was running around like a mad man in my first business – which went broke, by the way – a nightmare it took me seven years to recover from

So, you get all this:

1 hours worth of manageable marketing chunks (like
the one above) each month.

Access to the marketing vault (as listed above)

Act now and start picking my brains.

Sounds good? it’s just $29 a month, and you get to learn in minutes what took me decades to discover.

But perhaps it sounds too good to be true? Will you really get everything I mentioned, just for $29?

Well, you get my usual 60 day money back guarantee.

If you don’t think it’s worth every penny, for any reason, or no reason at all, tell me and I’ll refund you in full, no questions asked.

I really look forward to answering your questions, and making sure you don’t make some of the ghastly mistakes I have in the last 50 odd years of marketing at the sharp end.

I guarantee that if you’re a busy business owner or marketing exec you’ll find my short chunks of brain fodder a Godsend.

And if you want to get lost in the vault, that’s up to you. I can promise you that in there you’ll find priceless lessons that will pay off – in more profit, less loss – and wisdom from some of the business world’s cleverest people.

But if you’re still not sure, I’ll trot out my favourite testimonial, from marketing legend, David Ogilvy:

“Drayton Bird knows more about direct marketing than anyone else in the world”

I guess I’ve said all I can.

Sign up now – don’t miss the launch price. You really have nothing to lose.
