1: Define the Boundaries.

Name four things your clients pay you for:

If you’re an insurance agent you might say

[a] Homeowners Insurance

[c] Bike/Boat/RV

[a] What is the six-step process you go through with a client who wants this product or service?
[b] What are six choices or options they have?
[c] List six facts – facts are thinks I can’t argue with. Time is a fact. Money is a fact.
[d] List six benefits – benefits are emotions or results.
[e] Catalog six behaviors we would see when a prospect is ready for you.
[f] Name six types of clients for this product or service.


NOW: Pick one.

You have 36 things listed on your working paper – pick one.
ONE of the 36 topics
is the amount of information
you can profitably
cover in 7-Minutes.
Any ONE of these would be a profitable 7-Minute topic.

3: Decide on a Handout or a Handoff.

and to add content about those points to your website.
