You’ve got a second chance…

Wednesday afternoon at 4:00 PM Eastern time, we
launched… and things just
went nuts.

We had people signing up so fast that I thought
our Internet connection was going to melt.

Which means we sold out our first 50 memberships WAY
faster than I thought we would. That also means
that the special bonus for the first 50 people to
sign up for is now long gone. My apologies if you
missed out… I know some folks had unavoidable
conflicts and couldn’t be waiting at their
computer when we went live.

HOWEVER, I have some good news for you. We did
some brainstorming this morning, and we came up
with an idea. This is the deal – the special
one-on-one coaching call is sold out… but if you sign up for
a membership by Tuesday, May 12th at
11:59 PM, you will get access to a 1 hour coaching webcast
(20 person maximum), where you can still get your
questions answered. We will schedule as many of these
webcasts as needed for those who sign up by Tuesday at
11:59 PM.

I know this isn’t quite the same thing as a one-on-one call…
but you will still get a bit more intimacy than the regular Q&A
webcast provides, which will be open to every member
of towards the end of every month.

But remember, to get this bonus you have to act by
Tuesday, May 12th at 11:59 PM.

Fast Mover Bonus #1 – First 50 Only

Ok, this is a biggie…

For the first 50 people who join, I will schedule a one-on-one strategy session where we can discuss your ideas and how you should proceed.

And if you don’t think we can get much accomplished in 30-minutes, think again!

Prior to our first call, you’ll fill out an information sheet where you’ll give me all the details about your ministry. (NOTE: You’ll find the mere act of filling out this info sheet to be valuable all by itself.) This way I’ll be able to prepare for our call ahead of time and fully maximize the time that we have.

Value: Priceless

Fast Mover Bonus #2 – First 500 Only

When we were cleaning out the vault we found my original presentation on servant evangelism on the church satellite network. Though the clothes and hairstyles of the audience will have you laughing, the content has never been needed more. It’s just as appropriate for you doing ministry in 2009, as it was fifteen years ago in 1994.

This 3 hour training seminar has been broken down into 6 lessons and includes PDF notes for you to download, print out, and fill out as you watch the videos.

Value: $99

OK, now you know about the bonuses being offered, so make sure you’re ready for the launch tomorrow at 4 PM Eastern / 1 PM Pacific!


P.S. – We have a large number of people on our list, visiting the blog, and leaving comments. All of this has come without much “publicity” – this is all from our own internal list.

I have no way of knowing how many people will register for, but I DO know that the first bonus will go very fast.

So if you want to grab one of those spots, then be ready tomorrow when we open.
