Experiment Results: Professional VS Amateur (Which Won?)

So I recently wrote an ad for my new book Ignition. It was all written text, and an amateur-looking image.

In it, I outlined a 3-step exercise to help people discover their perfect niche for their online business.

It was working pretty well, acquiring new customers at break even on the first run-through of testing. However, I wondered if turning this tutorial-like post into an entertaining video would work better.

So I came up with a video.

The Great Social Media Armageddon

So yesterday you'll probably know that Facebook, Instagram and some other social media sites were having problems most of the day.

Pages weren't loading. Replies weren't posting. Ads weren't showing.

The Best Customer Service Software?

When you're starting and running an online business, there are two important areas you have to focus on:

1) Making the sale.
2) Keeping the sale.

Over the last 11+ years of running several six figure online businesses, I've learned that keeping the sale is 10X harder without good customer service in place.

Your customers need somewhere to send their questions, and relying on email with the ever-increasing strict spam filters nowadays isn't going to cut it.

Not only that, but good customer service can help you make the sale in the first place, too. All is takes is answering a potential buyer's question and they'll often buy right away when they realize your solution is right for them.

(Yes, we've made $3,000 and even $20,000 sales this way.)

But what is the best customer service software to help you do this?
