"Do NOT take this lightly. I choose my words VERY carefully...
As a client, I am a pain in the ass. It’s okay. I know. I want the platinum service with the (better-than-mom-got) friends & family discount. I want done-for-me service but I want it with the (hold-my-hand) explanation tutorial.
I procrastinate until the eleventh hour while I expect perfect completion — twenty minutes ago. I want it to look like Steven Spielberg and Senator Elizabeth Warren produced it. I am a misguided perfectionist and I ask for the wrong thing — every time. I talk too much and I have no idea what I’m talking about.
Brent stays exactly 187 steps ahead of me at all times. Not only does he KNOW his business, he’s learned MINE. Not only does he DO the work well, he’s learned to speak neanderthal so I can understand what the (bleep) he’s talking about.
The man is a genius. Not because he’s a reliable professional (although he is). Not because he’s timely, diligent, or well-trained and uber experienced in his craft (although he is). But because — without question — he cares.
I fancy myself a customer-service oriented professional…but Brent has me beat…by a full kilometer (and quite frankly, I’m not really all that confident I know how far that is, but I’m sure we could ask him. And he would tell us. Or find out. Under budget and within the hour. And explain it to us in good ol’ plain speak we’ll be able to comprehend.)
In all seriousness, Brent is the best thing I’ve done to take my business to the next level. By a lot. Study theory and nerd-industry best-practice all you want. But when you’re ready for implementation, make sure Brent Peterson is in your corner setting it up, calling the plays, and working crazy sh!t you never even heard of to get it right.
His motto should be, “I make YOU look good. And that’s saying a lot!”
A lead magnet is an extra incentive to inspire someone to join your email mailing list. In essence, it is a form of exchange. You gain someone’s contact information (e.g. email address) and the other person receives your lead magnet - click here for a example.
A good lead magnet will:
Attract the right leads to your mailing list and business.
Grow your online business automatically.
Give you time back for your family and friends.
Lead Magnet Project FAQs

Q: Do I need any technical skills to participate?
A: Participants do not need any web technical skills to participate. This project is a great fit for professionals who often feel overwhelmed by the technical side of online entrepreneurship and are stuck taking the next strategic step.
Q: Do I need a website to go along with a Lead Magnet?
A: Not at all! Lead magnet opt-in sequences can be handling directly through Facebook Lead Ads or landing page software such as Leadpages (in fact, project participants can receive custom designed Leadpages tempates for their own re-use). Participants with websites will be given professional design advice for their opt-in forms as well.
Q: What is the duration of the Lead Magnet Project?
A: The Lead Magnet Project does not have a set duration - as advanced instruction will be added to the project in Teamwork each month. Participants can stay connected the project for as long as they see fit. There are no annual contracts to sign or big online course fees to pay upfront. Leave after one month or stay connected. It's up to you!
Q: What is the cost to participate in the Lead Magnet Project?
A: The project retainer fee for custom client projects is $500/month (and there's a wait list). You are obviously not going to be charged that amount. The cost for the Lead Magnet Project is instead 75% less per month or $125/month. Professionals on the email interest list (click here to sign up) will also have the opportunity to lock in an additional monthly project discount of 25% leading to a very reasonable cost to participate of $93.75/month.
