Hook, Story, Offer

Day 1 was all about understanding your product story. How can you relate your message to your audience and how can you make them connect with things you’ve gone through to build the product you’re offering.

Here are some of my favorite key takeaways:

  • What is your hook? – R. Brunson
  • What false beliefs do your customers have? – R. Brunson
  • Of Something Isn’t Working IN Your Funnel… It’s Always Either The Hook, The Story, Or The Offer… – R. Brunson
