U – Uplevel Ads 

It’s fight night, and the Mr Miyagi of the launch world has stepped into the ring, “Let’s get ready to rumble!” Jeff Walker is warming up for a fascinating 3 phase launch process. 

More on that in the Now Launching segment, but let’s dive into one of Jeff’s Facebook Ads.

This ad is driving people to a registration page for, yes, you guessed it, a 3-part workshopCountdown To Launch – Free 3-Day Live Challenge.

3 Elements To Inspire Your Ad Campaigns:

  • Join the conversation: Jeff immediately joins the conversation in people’s heads. “If you’ve been sitting on a great business idea…. But have no idea if people will pay for it or not”. A lot is going on in this one sentence. Jeff hits a pain point. So many people want to start a business and believe they have a great idea but don’t know what to do next. Jeff shows that he understands his audience by voicing inner feelings, thoughts and conversations his audience is having. Jeff also calls out their big challenge. Even if my idea is good, how will I get people to pay for it?

  • Take A Counter Intuitive Stance: Next, Jeff builds interest by introducing a “crucial” (hidden, secret, missing) step. This step will bring you from where you are stuck (idea phase) to your dream state (profitable business). But it’s not what you would expect. It’s what makes people “BELIEVE” in a product or service. To an aspiring entrepreneur, this opens up a host of new opportunities. It wasn’t that their idea was wrong. They just hadn’t found this secret sauce that would make people believe in their product and buy it. This is why they failed before. This is why it will be different this time.

  • Tackle Objections: “If you’ve got an idea for a transformation product, program or course, you don’t have to have an MBA, wait for the “perfect” time, or have a flawlessly polished offering” What holds people back the most are feeling like they need to learn more or now is not the right time, or they need things to be perfect. It’s the exact same for your audience. Call this out but the key is to tell them what the magic antidote is to help them move forward with confidence. 

3 Elements We’d Test:

  • Simplify The Language: “then I’ve got exactly the key information you’ve been missing” Sometimes, we feel the need to stack adjectives and adverbs into our copy. Often this can detract from our message and lose our audience. It would be interesting to see if “then I’ve got the critical information you’ve been missing”. It’s only a change of two words but sometimes that can have a big impact on results.
  • Formatting: This is something small but it still plays into the vision your audience creates of you. Make sure to review your ads before they go live. We can see the url in the middle of the ad has fallen off its bullet point. This will have a tiny impact on conversion rates if any but it is still worth noting. Make sure to review your ads before you hit publish. After doing all the work sometimes all you want to do is hit that publish button and go live but always stand back. Take a mental break and come back to review your ad copy and creative later with fresh eyes. You’ll be surprised what you’ll pick up. (PS. Deliberate mistakes and errors can result in higher conversion rates. It’s a risky strategy and one I would only attempt after every other avenue was explored!) 


N – Now Launching

So onto Jeff’s launch strategy. Jeff is running a 3-Part Challenge as a pre-launch for PLF Live.

At PLF Live, Jeff will offer Launch Club. 

This makes Countdown to Launch a pre-launch for the pre-launch of Launch Club.

The structure is as follows:

(JV, FB Ads, Email) > Countdown to Launch Opt-in > VIP Upsell ($47) > PLF Live ($397) > Launch Club ($12,000)

3 day live events are the #1 way to sell high-ticket programs. Since COVID forced people to move there events online, people across the board are seeing significant decreases in event costs, increases in events registrations and high conversion rates to their in event offers. 

The three primary methodologies for launching a virtual live event are webinar series, challenge or multi-part workshop.

Jeff is rolling out a multi-part workshop….but here is the interesting part. He isn’t just doing it once. He is delivering the workshop live and then rolling out a recorded version of it each week for 3 weeks up until PLF Live. 

This gives plenty of opportunity for his JV partners to pick the most opportune time to email and his team time to scale their Facebook Ad campaigns.

Here is an above the fold screen shot of the opt-in page.


3 Elements To Inspire Your Opt-in Page:

  • Follow the proven model: There are 5 key above-the-fold components of an opt-in page. Headline, Subhead/Prehead, Image, Body Copy, CTA. Not alone is Jeff following the proven model structurally. He is following it from a copy perspective too. Free is used twice (Prehead & CTA). Clear primary promise (Launch Your Online Course, Member Ste, or Coaching Program). Make it feel easy (3 simple steps). Then the body copy backs up your claims and provides evidence as to how people will achieve the primary promise of your headline. Deviate from this model, and you risk a much lower conversion rate.

    • Make it easy: People are busy. They don’t read your copy. They scan it. I love how Jeff has highlighted key phrases and sentences using bold. This helps people take away 80% of the message in your copy at a glance without reading all the words. This is one of the reasons I love bullet points. Bullet points force you to say what you want to say concisely. They also draw the reader’s attention to the points and force them to slow down.

  • Mobile optimization: Below is a screenshot of the mobile version of the opt-in page. If you are running ads 60%-80% of your traffic will come from mobile. If you’re driving email traffic, your mobile percentage might be a little lower, but it will still make up over 50%. Look how Jeff moves the opt-in button up directly below the headline to make sure it shows up above the fold. If you download the pdf of the mobile opt-in page you will also notice the image has moved to the very bottom of the above-the-fold section from the desktop version. There is nothing worse to arriving on a mobile opt-in page and being hit with an image that takes up 75% of your screen. Ain’t no one got time to be scrolling past images on their mobile!
