"Then, when the offer was ready, we sent an email to this opt-in list pointing them to a video.
"The video is basically just the client reading the script, and then showing the script almost verbatim on screen as she reads it.
"There are no control buttons on the video… the viewer must watch it all to get the info.
"The order button doesn’t appear until I want it to show up, which is at 11:29.
“In FOUR DAYS I sold more than twice as much of that specific product than they had been able to in the previous THREE YEARS.
