* Squeeze Page
* Opt In

all the internet marketing wizardry in the world won’t save you.
It comes down to real people, not prospects and visitors. And look,
real people smell bullshit — you can’t fool many people with it.
Keep this in mind too. You’re going to get more people into your
sales funnel and onto your list with a *real* offer and solid value.
