Does the Machine only work for "IM" businesses?
ABSOLUTELY NOT! We’ve successfully applied the Machine to everything from high-end consulting businesses, done-4-you service businesses, software businesses, eCommerce businesses, information publishing businesses and even the commercial water filter manufacturing business (it doesn’t get more boring – or further from the “IM business” than that). But don’t take my word for it; here are just a few success stories from the Machine BETA group: http://followupmachine.com/why-the-machine
Do I need an email list?
Yes, you do. (But wait… if you don’t have a list yet I still have a plan for you.) The first bonus module is all about “Social List-Building”. In other words, how to leverage Facebook and Twitter to build a list of (at least) 1000 subscribers quickly and cheaply in virtually any market. So, if you don’t have a list YET, don’t let that hold you back! Because when you join “The Machine,” we’ll teach you how to build and then monetize your own subscriber list.
Do I need my own product?
No having your own product isn’t a requirement. While it’s easier to make a lot of money if you have your own products, it isn’t essential, and “The Machine” will work exactly the same even if you’re promoting products as an affiliate. In fact, it’s a lot smarter to build your list BEFORE you build your first product, because then you can let your subscribers tell you what they want instead of having to guess and hope you’re right.

Do I need any special software or technology?
Nope. You’ll need an autoresponder solution like Aweber, iContact, Mailchimp, Infusionsoft, etc… …but you’d need that no matter what. The Machine is designed to work with “out of the box” solutions, because they’re both stable and cost-effective. So as long as you can swing $20 or $30 a month on an email service provider (less if your list is really small), then you have all the software you need. The magic is in the system and the turnkey, templatized campaigns… …not in some expensive, hard to use software.
Will I have to write emails from scratch?
Nope, but by the time the program is done you’ll be able to write killer emails! When you join the Machine Coaching Program you’re getting access to over 30 proven, tested and templatized email campaigns that you can swipe, fill in the blanks and deploy in your business. BUT, I don’t just want to “give you the fish”, I want to “teach you to fish” too… So, I’ve dedicated an entire Bonus Module on “Killer Email Copywriting”, taught by none other than Perry Belcher (who in my opinion is one of the greatest living copywriters), so you can learn how to craft your own persuasive emails, when ever you need to, just like us!
What if I have questions during the training?
The Machine Coaching Program isn’t just training and email templates, it’s an actual coaching program and membership into a powerful group of like minded people pushing you towards success. So, my team and I will be here for you, to help you get your “Machine” up and running – QUICKLY. I know you’ll have questions along the way and that’s why we created the Private Members ONLY Facebook group… So you can ask questions and get answers from my team and I AND your fellow students.
Can my team get access to the training?
YES, the Machine templates and training are structured so that you can absolutely hand this off to a member of your team to tweak and implement in your business. In fact, that’s one of the biggest benefits of this program. Check out what Machine BETA members Daniel Arzuaga and Chris Curry have to say about that aspect of the program here: http://followupmachine.com/why-the-machine
