THE 28-DAY RAPID DEPLOYMENT CHALLENGE IS A SHORTCUT
Before I created the Rapid Deployment Model, I was living in a constant tech quagmire. Because I was saving money on my multiple websites by using shared hosting, things were cheap, but abysmally slow. And because a safe, SEO-proper website needs constant updating of plugins, themes, schema and content to get their proper amount of Google-love, every morning for at least an hour or so, I found myself digging around on the back end of things, updating, installing, and tweaking even more settings to get each of these Frankestien parts to cooperate with one another.
I sure felt as though I was being productive, but if the consultant in me were to side sidebar and watch my morning routine, it would be quickly pointed out that I was being everything but productive. Worse, I was failing to pay attention to what would actually make a difference in the life of my business, and for my family—promoting and selling my services. I was saving money, but losing time—a ton of it.
Because none of these tools ever really played well together, using them became unsustainable. The constant need to iterate and update made it impossible to suitably get even a single website humming, and so…
I decided to find a better way.
I spent two years, thousands of dollars, and thousands more hours researching and testing every imaginable platform and technique in an attempt to find a better way to successfully launch a consulting brand online.
At times, I felt like James Madison searching for a more enlightened way to construct a better government by combing through trunk-loads of books sent to him from Europe by Thomas Jefferson…
In the end, it all paid off.
Because, at the tail end of 2019, I was able to engineer a single repeatable method that leveraged best practices in SEO, conversion optimization, content creation, Google speed optimization, design ideals, and lead generation techniques in a way that freed these disparate parts from their typical business silos, and introduced them a la carte into a process that finally allowed them to hum in unison.
—It was as if sales and marketing finally got together and hugged, design and content finally found a way to shuffle more amiably between “which goes first.. the content, or the design?” … and the engineers finally found a way to communicate without the need for a technical writer.
Now, everything I needed to conscientiously—and swiftly—produce a consulting website for myself and others was do-able in under a month.
It was a true revelation, and the reason why I believe the Rapid Deployment Model is so helpful to consultants who want to get right to business, and not fiddle with tech, with design, with anything outside their area of expertise. Does that sound like you?
The Rapid Deployment model allows you to reach and acquire clients rapidly—by condensing the creation of your website into a mere 28-day window, with zero tech hassles…
… all while establishing you as an authority in your market space so you can be found, (and called upon) by clients and other professionals interested in your services.
See below to learn how it works in detail, but here’s a snapshot of how things play out:
HERE’S WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS…
Every business is built on one thing and one thing only – it’s ability to generate revenue…
…And revenue is largely based on the ability to get customers. Generating customers is also the #1 expense a business will incur in it’s quest for growth….
…That’s why I developed the Rapid Deployment model—to help consultants like myself ramp-up an online presence quickly so it then becomes possible to shift energy to where business growth happens. On the phone, in person, via email. We want to help clients achieve success. I want to help you do the same as a client of mine. And it all begins with a simple, yes, simple consulting website.
…So you can get found, get clients and get on with business building.
How far you scale is up to you.
…Here are a few of the folks I’ve worked with and their stories of what they’ve been able to accomplish with the help of the RDC model:

From: The desk of Doc Kane
Re: The most efficient way to get in front of customers & clients (and why your business is going to depend on it)
Dear Fellow Consultant,
I can do something you can’t. Yet.
I can easily attract dozens of interested prospects to my consulting practice, who because of all the up-front work I’ve done building a client-focused web presence…
I can later team-up with to help solve pressing sales and marketing problems on projects that range between $4,000 and $10,000, and help them reach more customers using my content and lead generation services.
I transition a fair number of those businesses into long term clients… the kind of folks I look forward to sharing a cold or toasty beverage with here in Japan, and who hire me to work with them on retainer, or as a fractional team member, at rates upwards of $85,000 annually.
Those Clients I Generate Everyday – Turn Into The Best Source of Referrals I Could Ever Ask For…
… because, as I’ll show you in just a minute, being able to tell an effective story, being able to illustrate to my ideal client who I am and how I can help them, allows them to tell their friends and professional colleagues how I can help them too.
And the best part? …
The Entire Process, From Getting The Customer, To Converting That Customer Into a High Paying Client, Is Almost Entirely Automated
Making what I’m about to share with you,
The Single Most Effective Method Of Generating Brand Awareness & Clients — In Any Market, And Any Consulting Niche…
And it all starts out by creating a simple, easy-to-browse, easy-to-find, fast-loading, SEO-backed WordPress website with a few basic pages of content that draws your ideal clients for all the right reasons.
Each building block of the RDC process enables you to launch a go-to-market plan more rapidly, help your intended clients, impact the clarity of the consulting industry on the whole, and offers tremendous value right out of the gate.
The RDC gets you running now whether you currently work for someone else and are getting a headstart on your consulting practice, or if you’ve already got a client or two under your belt, and are ready to take your practice to the next step. Because that chutzpah…
Combined With The Construct, Convey and Commence Framework—Turns Empty Web Real Estate Into A Client-Grabbing Machine (All Within 28 Days)
If you’re skeptical about that…
Because there’s reason to be. Web design horror stories are legion… I’ve been a victim myself. And this is a direct response sales letter… we all know what that means, right?
… yes, but, this sales letter allows me to illustrate how I can put you in the driver’s seat quickly without the need to jump on a call with everyeoone first.
It’s part of the entire operational design process. Part of the Kaizen map.
Consider it Six Sixma lite, if you will…
… because my business isn’t sales operations, it’s writing and editing (and maybe sales enablement to a degree).
That means, if you’re interested, READY TO GO NOW, and have the budget, we’ll hop on a call. But not a moment before that—because we all know being too early serves no one, right?
Speaking of taking the leap, I imagine you want to know who I’ve helped in the past, so you can feel compfortable choosing me to handle this investment for you.
You Want Proof—Real Proof…
You want proof it worked for me.
You want proof that it worked for others.
And Most Of All You Want Proof That It’s Going To Work For You
But first, read this disclaimer:
I have the benefit of thirty years of experience as a writer and marketing guy, and have helped generate multiple seven figures and a slew of eager eyeballs for businesses in a host of verticals.
The average person who hangs out their shingle online gets little to no results.
I’m using these references for example purposes only.
Your results will vary and depend on many factors …including but not limited to your background, experience, and work ethic.
All business entails risk as well as massive and consistent effort and action.
If you’re not willing to accept that, please DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS OFFER.
With That Said, Look At This…
They’re just a small part of a group of consultants…
who are using this breakthrough framework to generate hundreds of customers and turning them into high paying clients..
So The Question Isn’t If This Is Going To Work For You…
It worked for us and it worked for all of these other entrepreneurs…
The real question is:
…What Might They Be Doing That You’re Not?
They’re just a small portion of a defined group of consultants…
who are using this breakthrough framework to generate a bounty of interest and turning those interested businesses into high paying clients…
So The Question Isn’t, Really, If This Is Going To Work For You…
It worked for us and it worked for all of these other entrepreneurs…
The real question is:
…What Might They Be Doing That You’re Not?
Are you still trying to figure out how to draw in clients who will see you as the solution to their problems, and will work with you because they believe they can benefit from your expertise?
Are you spending time and income reading marketing books (if you're not a marketing consultant) and trying to figure out how you're going to make this business work?
They’re Not Better, Smarter Or More Talented Than You—They’re Just Doing Things Differently Than You…
They’re not operating without in-house, or contracted editors. Yep, I’m an editor, and this bodes well for me, but if you’re writing anything that is going to be consumed by future and current clients and not using an editor, this is one biggie your more progressive competition figured out a long time ago.
They’re not hosting their website on a website builder like Wix, Weebly, Squarespace, or other such shops because of the inherent lack of control, as well as the lack of theme, plugin and content flexibility…. not to mention the smoke and mirrors (expensive) pricing structure.
They’re not posting incessantly on social media—despite the current wisdom, there is a finite return on each of these properties… including LinkedIn.
They’re not over-doing it on content creation—too much content means too much time away from solving client problems. New and repeat business is a intentional contact, exposure, and a demonstration of worth and personality. You don’t need to be flashy and everything to everyone to win business from your preferred clients. You are not McKinsey, or Bain, BCG… any of the big shops… Who also, by the way are not “everywhere.”
They’re not relying soley on cold calling—but they definitely do it.
In fact: they’re not doing anything that just about everyone else is doing when it comes to acquiring clients…
They do something entirely different…
…Something that actually works.
Instead, They’re Leveraging The Front Door Of Their Business—Their Website—To Act As An Automated Invitation Machine
This machine works 24/7/365 – generating interest and clients on command
Using the construct, convey, and commence framework that allows you to…
Establish yourself with clarity as an authority in your market space (in any market or niche)
And in turn, generate interest in your products and services on autopilot
While at the same time ascending a number of those customers into retainer clients (that rely on you to help them solve and head off problems that affect their business and their teams day in and day out)
Here’s what it looks like and details of how and why each phase works
Now you can see…
Why this will be the most powerful model for you to use in 2022 to acquire customers and clients…
Are you currently offering your services to the market? Are you reaching and helping as many businesses as you would like? Chances are your online presence and branding might need a boost, and that’s likely because it’s missing this one thing. And today, I’m going to hand that one thing to you.
Clarifying your message pays for itself—forever.
I think the fact, you get to build an audience of colleagues and clients who respect you as an authority because you’re able to quickly demonstrate to them how you can address and solve the problems that plague their operations. With clear, quality messaging, built atop an easy to find, easy to navigate website, you front load value, and distance yourself in your market from other consultants not doing the same.
I would say that the case study story approach is an excellent tool to promote, strengthen, and build your credibility and authority in your marketplace. It also gives you the opportunity to implant your solution in the minds of readers so when they’re ready to become clients your approach to their business need is easy to recall and share with other team members.
Low time investment
This model ensures you do not end up squandering time with tech concerns, nor the production of less-than-stellar content. You know the web real estate you finalize at the end of your time in the cohort will be complete.
Because you know what’s worse than losing time working outside of your wheelhouse? Ending up with less-than-stellar results.
I want to spend more time helping clients solve their problems …because 1 hour saved by delegating unfamiliar tasks = 10 times the productivity
Any successful entrepreneur knows it’s easier to bring in an expert and delegate than to handle everything on their own.
And That’s Where The Sales Pitch Ends
So, if you’re someone who hates reading long
sales letters – I’m going to save you a lot of time right now…
Let Me Explain To You How This All Came To Be, So That You Fully Understand Why It Works In The First Place…
Howdy, I’m Doc Kane…
Thanks for swinging by, and for your steady interest if you’ve stuck with me this long. Can I share with you a little about myself? It might help you understand where I’m coming from, and why I’ve gone through this elaborate presentation to get your attention today.
Like you, I’m not the biggest fan of direct response sales letters like the one you’re reading now. Not the biggest fan, but I am a fan.
And, I’m a fan because a good direct response letter is probably THE best way to tell a story that’s long and meaty—particularly if you’re interested in running a lean operation like I do. An operation that allows you to get much more out of your day… your year (!) as a solopreneur, or small business than many larger firms do on their best days.
And for that reason, I’ve always admired the writing behind a good direct response letter. Because a good sales letter, like those you’ll learn to create as a Nihon Hustle member, WORKS.
And if you’re between the ages of 35 and 65 (I’m leaning toward the high end of things myself these days at 52…) —
You might remember some of my favorites from when we were younger:
Rolling Stone magazine…
Or, maybe Publisher’s Clearing House?
I can’t tell you how many times, I’d sit on the floor of my bedroom, separating those mini-stamps for records and magazines, and sending them off in the mail in eager anticipation of all the goodies my paper route money was going to help me pay for.
Do you remember those days?!
I love long letters like this one, because when they speak to us, they do so at our core.
They light up that spirit and drive inside us that taps into WHO we are, what we WANT out of life, WHAT we aspire to become, WHAT we’re afraid of… and, hopefully… what we want to to for others.I like that kind of writing, as I do all writing that’s good, tells a message, and is effective.
Because more than driving the income of the person who wrote it, it drives the income and experience OF THOSE WHO READ IT.
A good sales letter isn’t really about the exchange of currency, it’s the exchange of ideas, of enthusiasm, of possibility.
And, that is hopefully what I’ve accomplished here today… at least a little bit, I hope.
This is my first one ever. So… I’m still learning. Please, forgive the bumpiness.
Because I have a goal.
A goal to help 1000 people in the next five years realize their dreams of entrepreneurship. I want to prove to the world, that people can be their own brand, make a difference in the lives of their families and in the lives of others throughout the world.
If you follow me on LinkedIn you’ll see me post this hashtag #1000Entrepreneurs …
It’s my mission.
And, I think there is almost no better time for those 1,000 entrepreneurs to get started on building that dream for themselves that, perhaps, until now, they have only been able to imagine.
We all understand how world has indeed changed drastically these last two years.
Ideas I’ve espoused for the last decade or two are finally becoming things the average person is talking about. Four hour work days (not work week) being all the average employee can really accomplish, commute time cost that is more than a wast of time resources, but energy, capital, and a life lost to the road.
Work inefficiencies that have plagued offices… open air layouts, meetings that run toward endless at every opportunity, colleagues you’re forced to deal with that in any other circumstance would be avoided like the plague.
There are are many problems with the modern workplace, and I address some of them regularly in my columns for GaijinPot here in Japan, in my “Head Down, Beard Out” Sunday email, and in future pieces I’m pitching to Inc. Magazine, Outside Magazine, and Men’s Health.
(See, I’m still a product of all that Publisher’s Clearing House stamp collecting! I used to save them even! Nuts!)
Why the fascination with work and wealth?
A life time of exposure to the former and a lack of exposure to the latter.
I come from a family of thinkers. Of engineers in our early days…
And in this generation, a lot of blue collar cousins and uncles (carpenters, shipyard workers turned managers), insurance professionals, teachers and kick ass supply chain logistics pros.
Today, we’re artists, we’re writers… we’re homemakers, and credit professionals.
In the end, though, we’re all just Kanes and Brennans. Two families that began in Ireland hundreds of years ago, made their way to America about two hundred years ago and have been hustling ever since.
And, we ain’t rich. I certainly am not!
And, I can’t make YOU rich either. Only you can do that. Just so we’re clear on that.
My recent story looks like this:
Somehow, I managed to wander over on a plane to Japan in 2017, and have never looked back.
My wife and I occasionally wonder as to how interesting it is that my grandfather was a Lt. Commander of the seabees in World War II… helping the U.S. Army make its way through the South Pacific just outside Japan, and here I am living in Japan, married to a Japanese woman. At some point kids will be in the mix, and they’ll grow up here as Japanese citizens.
The world is indeed a remarkable place.
Remarkable in ways we can all experience if we wait long enough, pray long enough, hustle long enough.
And, yet, when that long enough will pay off is often a mystery.
It is still for me as well…
When do we realize what it is we’re looking to achieve?
How can we remove the obstacles that constantly get in the way?
If we have little time and money to carve out a space for ourselves where we can share our gifts and talents with the world, without having to work for someone else, how to we do that?
And, how to do we do that quickly?
I have wrestled with this idea for nearly 40 years… from the time I was selling candy sticks in grade school band class and getting up early (most days) to deliver newspapers as a twelve year old, I wanted more.
Have I achieved it all ?
No way in hell.
Do I always want more?
If you were to be hanging out with me in my kitchen just now, you would have heard my wife tell me to put down my phone and stop consuming information so I could create some of my own, and nurture some of my own ideas.
And, so here I am. Writing. Hoping to help nudge you in a direction you’ve thought about, but have waited to head toward for too long.
Maybe because you didn’t know how to do the tech to launch your consultancy.
Maybe because you don’t have the money.
Maybe because you don’t consider yourself a designer or a writer.
I am here to tell you that I am going to take all of that wishing away from you for less than just about every course about minset, about coaching, about creating a course… all of it.
I am going to show you how to get your very own consulting website up and running in less than one month.
So you can start pitching clients and sending them to your very own real estate online this year. Not next year, not in five years. This year.
Actually, this month.
Ready to do this?
Compare That Vs. The Low Cost High Value Model We Run
I’m gonna show you what you need to do…
Because you never needed what’s been billed as necessary in the past, and you sure don’t need what’s still being billed as necessary when it comes to the future.
When it comes to crafting your web presence online you need three things, and three things only. Fast tech, sharp design, and superior content. That’s it.
You need only a few things to make the mechanics of this hum, and I’m going to lead you through completing those steps by actually doing most of them for you. How ’bout them apples?
Why the hell would I do that?
Because for 27 years I have seen web design firms charge an arm and a a leg for design elements that aren’t necessary.
I have seen SEO “professionals” charge exhorbinant sums of money for mystical advice that is completely uncessessary when as the owner of your business, you write with your audeince in mind.
And, I have seen talented writers get paid pennies on the dollar for what actually drives eyeballs to sites, keeps them there, helps companies sell products and services, and basically drives every single web property out there.
The model you’re paying for is backwards.
Because design is crafty.
Crafty, but unnecessary.
Design is the fox that steals your lunch and dances away with your money while you look at it’s pretty, fluffy tail.
Content, on the other hand, appears simple. Easy to do. Easy to overlook.
And yet nothing exists without content.
Because it’s not that content is King, content is everything.
Without it, all you have is a pretty website. That’s it. Congratulations. And, you probably paid USD $7,000-$10,000 for the privilege.
You bought a fox.
Then, on top of that… if you’ve already been down this route before, you had to find a writer, or you had to do it all yourself. And, while you can write, you likely wouldn’t define yourself as a writer.
Throughout all of this, not only do we lose time, but we lose money.
And, this DOES NOT NEED TO HAPPEN.
I mention 1994.
You might think I’m batty talking about the Internet in 1994.
Except, I’m not. Because in 1994, I was part of a team straight out of college bringing the Internet (with a capital “I” back then) to the entire state of Illinois. Before that, all most Americans knew about the Internet, was there was this company called America Online that spammed the heck out of your actual mailbox with CD-ROMs.
In 1994, I was running advertising for a company called Midwest Internet in tiny Carbondale, Illinois. I was 25.
The internet was cool.
And, it was expensive as hell.
We had a web design team, and I swear, I was hearing about prices upwards of 100,000k for design. It was nuts. And, STILL back then no one was doing content, everyone was only just selling design.
Because everybody thinks they can’t do design.
It’s too hard… to complicated… too… “not me.”
Well, these days, it’s easier than you think.
And, I make it even easier for you, by showing you exactly where to get the pictures you need, editing them for you, and in some cases (even shooting them for you). Neat, huh?
Okay. So, pictures and graphics. Done.
Oh, boy… tech is a pain in the neck.
That’s why I spend four years of my life between 2017 and 2021 figuring it all out.
I also have the benefit of being a techie kinda guy since way the heck back in the 90’s. The folks at U.S. Bank taught me a few things about network support, coding and other cool things like that, and because I was able to piggy back on HTML coding from back in my days at Midwest Internet… all that knowledge paid off.
That means I developed a healthy vocabulary to diagnose problems, chat with folks a hell of a lot smarter than me in tech support, and in general ferret out even the most complex website problems we run into.
My secret weapon though, isn’t my own knowledge… it’s that of my outsourced tech team. And, the fact that I am in contact with them constantly. Things go wrong. Definitely, and always. But, beacuse they’re available to me 24/7, all year round, and I know what to ask them, I get around issues quickly.
One more obstacle I remove for you so you can focus on business building and not website building.
Two Down. Your Tech Finished, and NOT costing an arm and a leg.
One to go.
I have spent the last forty years of my life writing.
Sometimes I say I’ve been at it 30 years… or 30+ years… but, in reality, I’ve been writing with a decent amount of attention to it, since I was at least 15, I’d say.
So, since I’m 52 now… let’s call it forty years.
I’ve also worked as a professional communicator (writer/editor) for the last twenty.
I’ve been on the board of IABC (International Association of Business Communicators), I’ve written content for SaaS companies, Associations, pharmaceutical companies, non-profits, Fortune 200 firms, and the tiniest family businesses you’ve never heard, of but were some of the most fun to work with in the entire world.
Those kinda companies, are my kinda company.
They’re like my two companies… Roscommon, and Maplopo.
Roscommon is the larger company I run that includes Nihon Hustle, and Maplopo is the Japanese literature translation company my wife and I run here in Japan with our trusty dog, Chiro. He actually does help out. Mostly at keeping us sane and all…
What does all this have to do with content, and better yet the content that you need for your website.
Because, the first thing I want you to know having written for 40 years, having run a communications company, with the best specialist writers in America, Ireland, and Candada… sourcing, researching, and writing content for top companies in consulting, insurance, and tech…
the first thing I want you to know when it comes to writing for your website is…
You do not need a writer.
You can already write.
You can write what you do better than all of the best writers out there about what it is that you do best.
Because you know it better than us.
You have lived it.
You have helped others do what you’re good at, so THEIR businesses hum.
You are a writer, whether you think you are or not.
And, I’m going to prove it to you in the 28-day RDC. I promise.
Because you’re going to see just how damn good you are when I pair you up with… not a writer… but an editor.
Listen. If you can craft a praise-worthy post on LinkedIn…
If you think you could write a decent congratulations letter to a loved one who graduated from college, or passed the bar, or did something meaningful in their life, then you can handle the initial drafts for your website.
You CAN benefit, however, from the instructive nature of a good developmental editor.
And, I happen to have a number of amazing ones in my pocket…
And with the right editor ensuring your content is top notch…
Your website is…then, ready to go.
Why am I doing this? Why am I offering all of this at this insane price?
One simple reason.
Because, I love small companies.
I love what they do for local business. For the community. For the spirit of the entreprenuer.
And, if that’s the kind of business you want to run as well, I want you to get there as well.
If you don’t yet have a web presence and are reading this here page because you need one, I’ll lead you through getting that done in 28 days.
If you need to know how to handle sales and marketing…
If you need to know how to handle hiring and retaining talent…
If you need to know what to charge, where to find clients, and how to set up your accounting…
Our adjuncts in action program will show you how to do all of that as well once you complete the 28-Day RDC.
If you can see yourself as the owner of your own company, I can help get you there.
Another Saturday spent tinkering… Not anymore.
…another nearly sleepless night wondering how you’re going to take this business of idea of yours online, so you can show people your expertise. Not anymore.
Another calendar, another book of … another notebook near the bedside, in your pocket, frayed from a being grabbed and turned over, folded, and return back to its place. A lifetime almost of ideas, it seems… waiting to see… to come to fruition, and yet growing ever more stagnant by the minute. Not anymore.
I used to think that aspiring to start a business was that point just before being successful in business. As I’ve grown older, I’ve come to realize that most of that aspirational thinking removes us too much from the action part.
We rationalize why this is the case… this not being able to take action… and while some of it may be some inasane reluctance to take the leap that is presented just before us, I believe there is always much more to it than that.
And, what others may label for you as excuses, in the real world, they are reasons.
Not enough money.
Not enough time.
Not enough connections.
Not a clue as to how to get started.
Many people will tell you these are excuses. They’re Wrong.
These are reasons.
And we all have them.
They are REAL.
The antidote to breaking through those very real obstacles, though, is first being aware of how you can break through them, and then doing just that.
Now, I can’t help you tweak your schedule so the effort needed to launch your consultancy happens.
And, I can’t help you earn more money right out of the gate.
But, what I can do is show you a path to getting your butt online quickly, without having to learn the hell out of all sorts of technology to get you there.
Wtihout having to become a designer, or hire one.
Without having to worry that the content you create doesn’t make sense, and languishes in the never, never land of Google with 10 billion other wesbsites out there.
You will have to spend some money. But you will also save a ton of money and time AT the same time.
You will also walk away more confident in your own abilities as a writer because of our writers’s room approach, where the best ideas always bubble up, and our stinky ideas sink. (trust me, I have a lot of those)
Then, because I toss in the first three adjunct lessons to our business builders course as complimentary, you’ll be able to get right out of the gates with selling your services.
How’s that sound for a great way to start 2022?
Not bad, right?
Tuition for the 28-Day Rapid Deployment Challenge is $2,500. Read below all of the insanity that I include in this program so you get the absolute most out of it possible.
And, because this is a cohort program, that means we all work together… move to gether… complete things together… help one another… together.
At the end, you walk away with 10 additonal contacts and maybe even friends who can help you, and whom you can help as they launch their own businesses. Then, once you finish, you’re entered into the larger pool of consultants who have completed the same journey as you, so you can learn more about what’s working now. And, share with the community what’s working for you now as well.
Think of it as basic training for your business self, without all the pushups.
Great. Get on my calendar, and we’ll have a chat. At the end of our call, I’ll ask you for your credit card number so we can process your order.
Why tell you this now?
Because I believe in transparency when it comes to sales, and I have seen it work wonders when acted upon. It creates trust, because you’re coming from a position of trust, and it is the same openess I encourge you to engender as well.
So, know that’s coming. If I think you’d be a fit for the community, and you believe the community will be a fit for you as well, I’ll ask you to buy right then and there. If you don’t think you’ll get your consultancy off the ground quicker with our internal support, and the support of the community, that’s cool as well—at the end of our call, we’ll part ways for the time being and stay in touch in other ways. LinkedIn is always good.
But, we’re not playing games here… this is the real deal.
Action is the name of the game. I’m not a coach, and I’m not here to convince you to do something you don’t want to do. I’m not here to convince you to spend money you don’t have. And, I’m not here to convince you to excel at personal branding, marketing and sales, if that’s not a series of cards you want to play.
So (!), there is so much in this write up, I hope I’ve helped you get a feeling for whether you will want to move forward, or pass on things for now. Totally your call.
A quick word before moving forward…
If perhaps you need to chat with someone ahead of time, go for it. I totally respect that, and do the same. I don’t make any kind of big money decisions without chatting with my wife. This is the way it works in all families. Some people like to get pushy in sales and suggest that when we’re considering a purchase we’re not strong enough in our decision making if we request to chat with our significant other or loved one before pulling the trigger on decisions revolving around a significant investment.
That’s foolish. Of course you should speak with any and all persons you need to chat with before giving me approval to run your card.
But, the ol… gotta speak with my… is a soft exit, we all know that. Many people use it as a way to let down easy the seller. Thing is, if you’re not ready, that is completly okay with me. But, lets decide ahead of time. Everything you need to know about this offer is right here on this page, and the proof of what’s in the pudding is in every single testimonial you’ve read here (you’ve read them, right?)… what we’ll cover on the phone call is your background, why you want to join, and what you expect to get out of the program.
You be feeling me out for the same things. Will you want to work with me? Do you think I can build your website in 28 days, motivate you to create amazing content, send you the bonuses I promise, and place you in a community of other like minded peers.
If we both see eye-to-eye on all of those things, then we both move forward as soon as the next cohort begins. If you don’t, I can handle the rejection—trust me. I’ve been in sales and marketing for three decades and not every girl I liked like me… so, rejection is something I’m okay with.
In fact, when I was about 12 or so, I asked a girl in school if she’d like to go to a movie with me some time … (that was a good idea for a date back in my time) … she just had a one word answer: no.
Funny, I survived.
She got married to someone else, and so did I. And, I’m damn happy for it.
You’ve likely got a number of these candid answers in your life as well.
Sure, they sting, but they’re clear, we appreciate the clarity, and we move forward.
Being upfront about telling people no, I think that’s a solid, professional way of doing things, and we all like working with people who do things with candor. If that sounds like you, go ahead and make an appointment to chat.
A little example…
I need a new computer. A new mac is about 2 grand. Pretty much exactly what you’ll be ponying up for this program.
I’ve needed one for a few years because I have a 2009 model.
But, I haven’t NEEDED one until now.
My eyes hurt from the damn small screen.
And, there are things I want to do on this laptop that are dreadfully slow due to old tech.
So, I need a new computer.
But, I’m not going to stroll into a computer store until I’m ready to actually buy one.
I need it.
When I want to buy it, I’ll buy it.
As an old sales and marketing guy, I really don’t believe in this idea of convincing people to buy.
It’s like trying to convince someone to love you.
It just aint gonna happen.
Either you love me, or you don’t.
I don’t want to convince you.
Hopefully, I’ve demonstrated precisely how I can help you go from where you are right now to where you want to be.
If I’ve done that well… then, well… we both win.
So, if you’re interested, please fill out the form, get on my calendar, and … oh! before you do that… don’t forget to draft up something that tells me about your business so I can check out your writing chops.
Don’t worry, I’m not looking at it with a red pen in hand.
Actually, I don’t even own a red pen.
Send it in, and let’s chat.
Here are 17 Reasons Why Our Clients Like To Sell Low Ticket Books & Courses To Acquire Customers and Clients
If you don’t have an effective website that acquires customers and clients for you – then you might as well be invisible.
It doesn’t matter how good your course or product is…
It doesn’t matter how much you can actually help others…
It doesn’t matter how much content you put out…
Because If No One Ever Buys Your Product or Service – Then It’s All For Nothing…
And if no one buys it…then you can’t reach the people whose lives you want to impact the most.
But in Order for Someone To Buy What You’re Selling – You Have To Be Able To Sell It
Without losing money in the process….
And when it comes to selling…
It doesn’t matter how good your branding is…
It doesn’t matter how good your graphics are…
It doesn’t matter how good your sales copy is…
It doesn’t matter how much content you put out…
Everyone tells you that you need a funnel but what no one tells you is that you need a funnel within a funnel in order to have the kind of success that people that are making millions of dollars…
…You need a funnel within a funnel.
And this secret funnel within a funnel is what no one will sell you about.
But it’s the exact thing that you’re going to get today.
This is the one thing that every “how to get customers” system out there is missing.
This secret funnel within the funnel is what they won’t tell you or show you – ever, because that’s what actually makes them money.
It’s do as I say, not do as I do, because they don’t actually want to tell you what they’re doing.
When it comes down to it…
When You Do Have An Effective Selling System – You Finally Can Build A Real Business That Works
We Realized It Was Time To Write Another Book And Help Others Just Like You Get The Same Results As Them…
We realized that there wasn’t anything else out there on the market that worked good as this and this is something that everyone needs in their online business.
And that’s why you’re here right now.
Because, now with one single decision – you could be next.
We spent the last 5 months writing the automatic clients book…
…We put everything we knew about how to do this…
…We didn’t hold anything back..
..And it came out to be 2 sections, 21 chapters – totaling out to 345 pages.
After it was done – we did one last test…to make sure that was not only up to our standards, but up to the standards of our readers.
So we asked them to review it…and you just saw the testimonials from the book readers.
After fine tuning the entire process for ourselves and others…
We wrote a 340 page book explaining how this entire model works – so we can help you get results too…
And in order to help you get results, we had to give you everything that you needed to do this…
At 340 pages – It’s a pretty hefty book.
One Book. 21 Chapters. 340 Pages.
1 System That Works.
It’s broken down in 3 parts – 12 foundations chapters, 10 implementation chapters and 7 bonus chapters.
This is a big book…
…And it’s that big for two reasons:
The first reason is:
We didn’t hold anything back.
We’re going to give you everything you need to do this.
And the second reason is:
Building an automated selling machine that powers a 7-figure business has a certain level of complexity to it…
…With many moving parts that make the machine work.
And when you know how to build a customer & client generating machine….
You Get Results, But In Order For You To Get Results…
You have to know how to do it step by step and that’s exactly what we’ll show you in the Automatic Clients book….
Here’s the Exact System Revealed in the Automatic Clients Book:
Step 1 – Pick a market where you can offer value (I’ll tell you more about this later in this video)
Step 2 – Discover your unique superpower and disruptive idea
Step 3 – Create a high-value low-priced “value vehicle ”product (book, course, template, etc)
Step 4 – Create the “bigger, faster, stronger” upsell path – this will allow you to make 10x on your front end product
Step 5 – Engineer the awareness bridge which naturally leads them to sign up for your $5,000 – $10,000 back end programs
Those Are the 5 Steps to being able to acquire 300+ customers a day

Why WPMU and Elegant Themes For your Tech Needs?
Because they integrate as top in class WordPress tech providers. With 24/7 live chat support from WPMU, and the intuitive and beautiful design of Divi you can tackle your tech in month one. We use both here at Nihon Hustle, and could not have scaled our business, nor operated successfully without their assistance. They are that good.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can you register a domain name for me?
Unfortunately, this is one thing we don’t do. And, there are a few good reasons for this. For one, you will always want complete control over your domain name. Having someone else (particularly a domain hosting company) register it for you can cause all sorts of issues you don’t want to deal with, so always handle domain names on your own.
Second, we want you to take your consultancy for a ride this year. By purchasing the domain name on your own, you start off from the get-go with skin in the game, and that’s a good thing, right?
Lastly, while we use and recommend Media Temple for domain names, there are a number of cheaper alternatives. If I needed to purchase a domain name and did not want to use Media Temple, I would consider (in no particular order) Name Silo, Hover, or NameCheap.
Remember, though, when purchasing your domain name, purchase only the name, do not purchase hosting, as that is what this knock ’em out kit provides for you. The domain name just helps you get rockin’.
First you need an address… the real esate comes later!
Isn't this too cheap? Isn't this too expensive?
In answering this question, I’m going to steal a page from WPMU’s playbook. They get this question all the time, and it is precisely what I was thinking when I first discovered their offerings.
Initially, their tech did seem to be a bit on the expensive side when compared to shared hosting provided by other companies. For example, at Media Temple, I pay $20 a month and host about 100 sites there. So, it’s affordable. But, as soon as I wanted to do more than just have a basic lead page up there, I noticed the sites were dragging like mad, which translates to lost visitors.
So, when I bit the bullet and began transferring my sites to WPMU, I felt like I was getting the deal of a lifetime. And, having been online since 1994 with websites, I had a lot of comparisons I could make. Funny how that works. I swear, I feel as though I should have several of their support team members over for dinner at this point.
WPMU has a partnership with Digital Ocean (they use what’s known as server “droplets”) to keep hosting dedicated (not shared or on a “grid), and reasonable. These droplets can be purchased individually from Digital Ocean for $5 USD if you were looking to do all of this on your own a la carte.
Additionally, outside of WPMU’s hosting and support, you also get the other goodies I’ve bundled into this Knock ’em Out Kit. This is were you might be thinking… what’s the catch? Well, there isn’t one. Because I have a licences for the plugins we provide at installation, I can share them with you as a client. That also includes the Divi Theme. Once the year is out, you will have to purchase the Divi theme package on your own, which also provides you with access to their support team and all future updates. Its a great investment. But in the first year, you get the theme for free. Support for Divi you can largely get through WPMU. I think in the last year, I’ve contacted Divi’s support team three times. And, each time that was because my troubles were related to hosting problems with Media Temple. So, once you have everything on WMPU’s servers, they can pretty much assist you with everything.
How does my own markup fit into the price of all this? Good question. The relatively thin markup I apply covers: the time it takes to set things up for you, a fraction of the cost I spend on the additional plugin and theme licenses I provide, the video training I offer, and the specific knowlege I have gained over the years in the tech and markekting space that will help you avoid twenty years of apprentiship and training.
My goal is to help you get your consulting practice off the ground. I struggled with doing the same thing for years. Certain technologies have made this easier as of late, but all the noise out there has made it increasingly difficult to analyze which options are best.
Because it drive me batty to see well intentioned business builders stuck on technology, I want to help eliminate that obstacle. Marketing is hard enough. Sales is a killer. Tech does not have to be. A year from now, you can hand the tech off to someone else entirely, because you’ll be selling more, and consulting more, right? Go get ’em.
Can I extend my access beyond a single year?
Absolutely. About two months before your one year anniversary date would arrive, I’ll start to message you so you’re informed of the end of your term. WPMU should also be reaching out to you around this time as well to remind you that you will want to renew your hosting contract with them. As always, everything I have created for the course within Teachable with remain yours for as long as you want access to it.
I already have a website, can I migrate it to WPMU?
Yes, indeed you can. And, here’s the deal. If you already have a website, that means you already have email accounts, and a domain name. And, you’ve likely got a slew of images, and content, and all sorts of other things. In that case, I would suggest you forgo this particular kit, and simply sign up with WPMU directly. They will help you migrate your site, and have you up in no time flat. Once you’ve got all that rolling, you may be interested in my Master Your Marketing, or Target 200 kits, but if you already have a website, I’d say you’re in good shape from a basic tech standpoint.
What happens after I've been with you for the full year?
Once the year is up, we cut you loose! Because you pre-pay for the first year of hosting with WPMU and get access to our bulk buying discount that first year, if you like how WPMU has performed for you, the billing will have already switched to you and you can continue with them from there. Of course, if you want to switch to another provider, you can do that as well. The big thing I focus on here is not tying you into anything beyond that first year. The rails are set in the first year to ensure you’re able to move quickly with your tech, but you own the relationship with WPMU just as you do with your domain name provider.
Once the year is up, you will also have to subscribe to Elegant Themes if you would like the updates they frequently dole out. It isn’t necessary, but (and this is a BIG but) not renewing can open you up to problems with hackers and the like. So, as alsways, and with all tech, staying up to date is important. Elegant Themes Divi is only $89. USD for the year, $299 for a a lifetime license. So, again, if you like it, it’s easy to stay with them. If not, you can check out another provider.
As always, you’ll retain access to all the training that came with this package. Yay!

Tackle your Tech launches September 17th, but as you might expect, there are several advantages to signing up early. For one, you’ll take advantage of the $50.00 early bird discount. Second, if you pre-register, I can get your tech ready ahead of time so you are ready to go right away on September 17th.
Installations are completed, first come, first served within the first 17 days of the course launch. So, once you have your domain name set up, pre-register on my Teachable page, and I will send you information that will help you take the next steps.
(From Sept. 17— Sept. 20, 2021)
On launch day, September 17th, 2021, you can still sign up for the course, but only until September 20th, 2021. On September 21 when the clock strikes 12:01 am Japan Standard Time, the course will close to new registrations until Q2, 2022. This way, I can keep classes relatively small, which is especially important when it comes to the monthly and group calls we will do within the course.

24/7 WPMU WordPress support
