Have you ever noticed that the longer you do something the more you either consciously or even sometimes subconsciously develop a set of rules for doing what you do?
It’s almost like part of how you get better at what you’re doing.
If you do it long enough you can basically develop your own rule book of what to do and what not to do for success at almost anything.
It’s like that for me in the Make Money Online space.
I’ve been in this niche for a while and I’ve had my share of successes but I’ve also had my share of failures (or learning moments lol).
Over the course of all that time I have developed a kind of personal “handbook” of do’s and don’ts for myself. Things to help me not embarrass myself so much as I move forward on my journey.
I’d like to share 3 of the big ones from my handbook with you today.
I call them the Holy Trinity of MMO and I can safely tell you that every time I have ever ignored one of them I always paid for it. I’ve never walked away unscathed when I didn’t respect the MMO Holy Trinity.
So…okay, obligatory build up over. What are they?
The Holy Trinity of MMO is as follows:
Let me explain.
Rule Number One – Cheap
Is the product you are trying to sell cheap or reasonably priced in conjunction with what the market perceives the price should be?
Just because you are the best email marker in the world and your email marketing book is the best because you have made a billion dollars with email marketing…
…what are comparable email marketing books retailing for?
If yours is listed at a moderately higher price than that, then generally you are now fighting an uphill battle because of it.
First rule of the MMO Holy Trinity. Make it cheap.
Rule Number Two – Easy
Make sure the tactics and strategies you teach in the product are easy to grasp and make sure you have convinced them of this on the sales page.
If they are not then you better address it on the sales page and you better fix it in the product. What do I mean by address it?
I mean make sure you break the information down and make it easy in the product. Use analogy and storytelling to help people understand and relate to complex ideas. AND on top of that, make sure you let them know it is going to be easy on the sales page.
If you violate this rule of the MMO Holy Trinity, I assure you, there is a painful burn in your future lol (I wish I did not speak from experience).
Rule Number Three – Free
The third and final rule of the MMO Holy Trinity is this;
Make sure your product is teaching free methods to achieve the outcome or solve the problem and if it isn’t then make sure you provide free alternatives.
If you are teaching people how to write viral content and you use “buzzsumo” as a place to start strategy wise…
Buzzsumo has a free trial and then it costs money. Now you have sold people a product that teaches them how to do something that won’t work unless they buy something else (and in this case something very expensive).
That’s in direct violation of the Holy Trinity of MMO. You will definitely feel the refund fire if you go down this road lol.
If you are teaching people how to do something and you use a paid tool to accomplish the outcome…
…always, always, always….
…include a free alternative for those on a budget or just starting out. Trust me, this is important.
In fact all 3 of these rules are very important. They didn’t end up being called the Holy Trinity of MMO in my personal handbook for nothing.
All three of these rules earned their place by burning me and/or my peers every single time we tried to ignore them or not respect their power.
I can take you on a walk through some of my launch history.
Affiliate Command 2017 – launched at a price of $197 on the front end, thereby violating rule 1 of the Holy Trinity of MMO. It did not sell well.
Free Funnels – launched at a cheap price, promised and delivered easy to follow training, and utilized ALL FREE methods and resources to accomplish the job. It was a 5 figure launch.
Launch Levels VOL1 – launched with a promise of showing people a case study of EXACTLY what I did to produce that 5 figure launch. Guess what. The perception in the market is that launching products is very hard and involved. I didn’t address that in my product or on my sales page. That was a direct violation of rule number 2 of the Holy Trinity of MMO. And I got burned for it.
Cloud Money – launched with an idea of teaching people how to make money online, with nothing…not even a real computer to do it. It was cheap, it was easy to understand and take action on training, and it was utilizing ALL FREE services and methods. Another 5 figure launch.
Talk Show Empire – launched with the promise of showing people how to start a complete business utilizing the power of interviews.
Guess what…the perception in the market is that interviews are hard to do because you have to be on camera to do them, and also they are kind of a pain because you have to talk to other people and be social. I didn’t address those concerns on my sales page and it put me in direct violation of rule number 2 of the MMO Holy Trinity again. I got burned…again. Ended up not even finishing the launch cycle on this one, sales were so poor (I don’t recommend that btw, I should have at least finished the launch cycle).
I could go on and on here guys.
The point is what I am telling you is the absolute truth.
It doesn’t mean you can’t violate the Holy Trinity of MMO and win. This is the universe we are talking about…it prides itself on exceptions to the rule.
But what it does mean is I promise you, if you ignore these rules, you WILL have a massively more difficult time winning online in the MMO space. LIke running uphill versus running downhill.
Trust me, you can see the difference pretty fast once you go live.
Now look, all of this assumes you have a great product that will really help people and bring value to their lives and businesses.
Can you use the rules of the MMO Holy Trinity to sell garbage?
Sure you can. And people do…every day.
Email marketing is the core of every sustainable online business. Good luck with your email marketing when your selling people garbage and ripping them off.
Anyways, that’s the Holy Trinity of MMO and it comes directly from the Kam Fatz personal “rules so I don’t embarrass myself…too much” handbook.
If you like this one and would like to hear more from my “don’t lose too much” handbook let me know in the comments below and I will have my team of highly trained mice get the message back to me…
…and I will seriously consider it. Lol.
That’s all I got. Hope you are doing awesome out there and may the best of your todays be the worst of your tomorrows!
