[Story-Driven Marketing of the Week #1] Matt Hussey Pre-Sale Page

Screenshot (79)

When you’re selling a product by email, you might want to add an EXTRA WARM-UP STEP in the buying process.

Perhaps you’re not sure if your email list is quite warm enough to buy directly from a link in your email.  So you need to give them a little extra nudge to get in the right mindset to buy.

This is where a pre-sale page comes in.  

It bridges the gap between the initial call to action (CTA) and your product sales page.

A couple weeks ago, I came across a brilliant pre-sales page by a well-known coach in the dating niche.  It was done in a way I’ve never seen before.  If I was in the market for relationship advice, it would have done the job to move me closer to the sale.

If you find that there’s a large drop-off between cold ad, organic social media or email traffic and your sales page…you’ll definitely want to see it.  It’s going to give you some great ideas for your own pre-sales page.

I’m going to break down the key elements that make this step in Matthew Hussey’s funnel so effective.

Let’s dive in…
