My notes on “How To Make Millions With Your Ideas”

Due to the fact i’m still feeling the consequences of the coronavirus, i’m writing to you from my bed not giving you a full summary but the essential points

To win with premium prices, clobber competitors with service
Call every customer after the job is completed to verify satisfaction
Offer strong guarantees
Get crazy publicity & word of mouth with free product to local companies (works if you own a cafe anyway)
Stake out a market leader position from the start – define a new niche
Break even on the first sale / product to get a mailing list together. Sell to that group long term
Repackage the same core product / service in heaps of different ways, different formats, different prices, to different target markets
