|Most of us make a fundamental mistake when dealing with the first few paragraphs. We put too many problems in, right away.
And it's a mistake. A big mistake! It's like an air traffic controller letting three planes land on the same runway.
So how do we avoid this problem? And is the problem over once the “plane” lands? Or is there more to worry about?

Imagine you are an air traffic controller and you've got three planes circling the airport
Are you going to land all three at once? Hi. This is Sean D'Souza from the Three Month Vacation. Today, we're going to be talking about how you need to dwell on a single problem instead of several problems when you're writing a sales page. Now why would a sales page be critical to you and how would it be connected to a three-month vacation?
It doesn't matter who you are. At some point in time, you're going to have to follow the three-prong system. If you haven't done so, listen to episode number two, where I outline the three-prong system. It is a system that has run for pretty much thousands of years, and it's based on three core concepts, which is creating products, services, and training.
Today, we're trying to sell either a workshop, which is training, or a service or a product and you're trying to write a sales page. You know that once you write that sales page and once you sell that product, service, or training, it generates income and clients, and then you get to go on your three-month vacation. Even as you're sitting there, you're trying to land three planes, and that's a mistake.
I don't have to tell you it's a mistake.
You already know it's a mistake. You know it's a mistake when you're trying to land three planes, but the moment you get onto the sales page, all hell breaks loose.
How do we prevent this from happening? How do we land a single plane at a time? If you follow this podcast, you know that we have three topics that we cover and then an action plan.
What are those three topics that we're going to cover today?
- The first thing we're going to look at the problem and how these problems seem to circle the airport and how we have to land them one at a time.
- The second thing is once they land, what are we going to do with them?
- The third thing is when do we give them a break? When do we get to the solution?
Let's look at these three and see how we can get this sales page to really work for us so that we can start to sell our products, services, and our training.
