Be a Better Hitter by Playoffs? Issue #73

Is it Possible to Be a Better Hitter by Playoffs?

What if I could help you be a better hitter by playoffs?

I made that offer to the little league players across the street from me. What amazed me was I overheard the coach say to his team and other coaches "we need to find a way to be better in the next two weeks because that's when playoffs start" and I was right behind him with my sign offering my "get better by playoff special" but no one even asked about what that meant.

I think what it is, there's a saying that people like and need to buy stuff, but no one wants to be sold. I think they viewed me as a dreaded salesperson who was going to push something on them that they didn't want or worse yet didn't need, when really all I wanted to do was to help their kids succeed at the very game they signed their kids up to play.

Maybe you are feeling a little like "Yikes, this newsletter sounds like a sales pitch".

Let's get that off the table for a moment and know that I only want to help you or your child be the hitter that they want to be and ask a better question, "Do you need to be a better hitter than you are right now in a very short period of time?"

How has what you've been doing been helping so far?

Do you know how to make a dramatic change in your hitting so that when playoffs come for you (whether it's right upon you or it's a month or two away) you can stop striking out as much or hit it harder and deliver in the way you'd like to?

Don't Buy my Book or Videos

You won't hear a sales person say that will you?

The truth is, most of what I offer in my book and videos will help you long term.

And if your skills aren't that good, then maybe the long term approach is a better approach, but if you have fairly good skills, maybe you're in a slump or you have a glitch in your swing that maybe your coaches can see but they can't seem to tell you how to fix it.

You need a hitting doctor, if there was such a thing.

The Hitting Doctor Is In

Let me tell you a little story about one of my readers like you.

He asked me if I would look at his swing. I said sure, but there was only one problem, I'm in Ventura, CA and he was near Toronto, Canada. But with technology we tried a number of ways for him to get me videos of his swing, then after a number of tries to figure out a way to watch the videos together, we finally found a way to talk to one another and look at his swing and see what he was doing that I felt wasn't helping his swing (he's a slo-pitch player, but we could've just as easily done it for his 12 year old son or any of the other players on the team he coaches (or any girl's softball player as well)).

Afterwards he said "I have found this experience to be quite enjoyable. Your strength, in my opinion, is the ability to take relatively complex subjects and frame them in a manner easily digestible by most people. Thank you for what you do."

He used the analogy of going to the doctor and getting his expert opinion.

I'll take it a step further.

You know when you're feeling like crud? You don't want to see a doctor who says "Let's try this and see if it works". You want the guy who taps on your knee, looks in your eyes and down your throat and says "I know exactly what it is and here's what we're going to do to make you feel better in the shortest amount of time possible".

Well that's what I can be for your hitting!

I normally can spot what's happening with a person's swing within 3 sample swings, and I know what you need to do to fix it.

Just like the kids across the street from me, I'm going to offer you my "Get Better by Playoffs Special" only in Internet style.

So we need to move fast as playoffs are upon us.

Here's what to do if you want to be a better hitter quickly

Here's the special. I normally charge $40 for a lesson and I'm willing to help you in one session at that price, but if you'd like 4 sessions, my "Get Better by Playoffs" special is for $120. So if you have enough time between now and playoffs to get 4 sessions in, let's do this. If not, and you'd like to take advantage of the special anyway, because you're tired of not hitting as good as you want to, I will honor those lessons we can't get in before playoffs through the end of summer.

So even if you just want the one lesson at a discount now, then we'll work together as your private coach to get you to be a better hitter overall, choose this 4 lesson route and get the benefits of both, be better now and over the long haul.

Nowadays it's so simple to have me coaching you to hit harder and better and not just having others telling you what's wrong with your swing that needs fixing, but not knowing how to help you.

Here's all you need to do reserve your 1 video analyis lesson here "I believe the $40 was well spent!" - Tom B. (the hitter in our story above) or if you want to take advantage of the special then use this link.

Once that's done, I will send you to the instructions on how to get the swings to me and how we can meet online in the next day or week depending on your needs. You almost always have a cell phone with you that will take video of 3 - 4 swings (they can be balls hit off a tee, soft toss, at a batting cage or they can even be dry swings). Remember, I'm a Hitting Doctor, I don't need more than that, they don't have to be game swings. So 5 minutes from now you could have this done.

Even meeting online is easy nowadays even if you don't have a camera and microphone, I'll be able to text chat with you what you'll need to do in the short run to hit better and if I see something that needs more long term work, I'll mention it, but we won't work on anything that will mess with your swing that isn't a simple immediate fix (that's where the 4 or ongoing lessons are great).

So again if you or your son or daughter want this get better by playoffs special reserve your 4 lessons and if you just want the one video analysis and fix it lesson

All of this is guaranteed, so that if you don't feel I helped you, I'll gladly refund your money, so it's really worth a try or you can take your chances with what you've been doing all along.

Until next time when we have more time.
