Introducing the smart marketers landing page conversion course
Today is the official launch of The Smart Marketers Landing Page Conversion Course

The word ‘epic’ is often abused, in fact it’s been quoted as being the most overused word ever, along with the word ‘fail’. So I’m going to use it appropriately today to introduce you to something… well, epic.

According to, the word EPIC can mean:

An episode in the lives of men/women in which heroic deeds are performed or attempted

Let’s see if The Smart Marketer’s Landing Page Conversion Course fits the bill.

Course statistics

  • 11 episodes – each will take you 30 minutes or less.
  • 10 world-renowned marketing minds.
  • 9 most excellent instructional videos.
  • 21,417 words, but who’s counting.
  • A worldwide community of internet marketers just like you, to discuss, share, and learn alongside.
  • 0 cost. Yup, we’re not charging anything for it. That’s not how we roll.

I think that fits.
