A Special Message from a Business Owner, Just Like You

Blake & Company
Dear Friend,

Not long ago I heard about this workshop from a friend of mine. This encounter caused me to make one of the wisest business decisions of my life.

Now I feel compelled to let others know about what I have discovered.

My name is Murray Blake. I live in Provo, Utah. I own my own insurance and investment company. I beat the bushes every day. I work almost every night, and I wear multiple “hats.” So you see, I’m probably just like you – an eager, hard-working businessperson, looking for ways to maximize profits by working smarter, not harder.

I’m excited to tell you that I’ve more than doubled my business in just the last six months. How did I do it? It was amazingly easy! The first week after attending the workshop, I implemented just one of the marketing techniques I learned. Without spending a single additional advertising dollar, my business took an immediate and dramatic shot upward.

Suddenly, I was able to go from spending hours chasing down one potential prospect at his office, to having 6 or 8 prospects meet me at my office and be glad they came! I never realized business could be done this way. What a refreshing change!

Now here’s the great part. If I did it, so can you.

Ascend Marketing’s workshop taught me the old ways of doing business are dead. The world has changed and in order to succeed we must think differently and apply new marketing methods. I came away with so many good ideas I still haven’t had time to use them all.

Business is a lot more exciting now with the measurable results I’m getting.

I can’t recommend strongly enough that you take the opportunity to go to this workshop. You’ll never regret it. I’m certain that no matter what business you are in you will get many thousands of dollars return on your investment.

Murray Blake, President

P.S. The great thing about this workshop is its risk-free guarantee. It made me feel really comfortable about attending. If you don’t feel you’ve already received your money’s worth in just the first 2 hours, they will refund your tuition on the spot. I’ve never heard of a guarantee like that before. I don’t know what could be more fair.

And more, from Workshop attendees all over these United States…


Lisa Cohen, Houston TX

“…I consider myself pretty marketing savvy — but this guy blew me away!”

Dave Tippets, Orem UT

“At its current pace, my business will more than double this year, and I know exactly why. If you want your business to experience immediate, dramatic growth, you’ll want to listen to what I have to say.

My business had struggled along for quite some time until I attended a workshop last year where I learned what it takes to really market my business.

That event changed by business and my life… and it can for you too.

The workshop is called How To Get More Customers Who Will Pay You More Money, More Often, and it’s taught by Jim Ackerman, a nationally recognized marketing consultant. I heartily recommend you attend.”

Dian Thomas, NY Times Best-selling Author

“Jim is the best thing since sliced bread… in fact, he is sliced bread.”

Marli Bober, Oklahoma City OK
“This was excellent! I’ve taken lots of marketing courses and this was the best! Lots of information — great delivery!

Michael Furey, Minneapolis MN

“Excellent presentation! Information very well organized with style and enthusiasm. Time passed quickly in what could have been a long day.!”

Ken & Kathy Ross, Woodland Hills CA
“…We were impressed! Explicit info and presentation with examples. Interaction and repetition for clarification and organization of material. Sense of humor and control of participation by the audience was great!”

Len Hovde, Milwaukee WI

“Forceful! Didn’t hesitate to praise or correct. Pushed me to be better!”

Ken & Lynn Baskin, Folsom CA
“…Excellent job of simplifying and communicating marketing concepts… Very fast moving and enthusiastic.”

Mark Hufstetler, Provo UT

“I would say you gotta go to this seminar because there’s so much information and it’s all good!
I got exactly what I was looking for. It’s definitely worth the 3 grand I paid to attend. Matter of fact, I’m going to go home and call my father and recommend it to him.”

Michael L. Carter, Los Angeles CA

Patsy Tonne, Dallas TX

“Very informative and knowledgable. The seminar was well worth the money. Made me feel more comfortable about this venture. Very good speaker — I feel like he really cares whether or not we are successful!”

Paul J Pysh, Pittsburgh PA
“After 4 years of advertising in college and another 13 years of ‘on the job training,’ including having attended dozens of other marketing workshops, I feel I am qualified to judge the workshop you conducted on July 16 in Pittsburgh.

“I do not think I have ever seen a better presentation! From the standpoints of energy, knowledge, the ability to get the information through to the audience and just plain charisma, you’re the best!
“Now let me get something straight. I have been delivering advertising seminars for more than 12 years and I consider my presentation to be the best. But now I know I better work a lot harder to keep up with you!
Thanks for teaching me some things I did not know and for reminding me of many of the things I’d forgotten!”

Ray Cox, St. Louis MO

“…Powerful, powerful, powerful! The best tool of this workshop. I look forward to working with you in the future.”

Kent Monen, Orem UT
“My first results came within about 10 days. I sent a letter to my customers for an annual private sale we have prior to our yearly, “Christmas in July” promotion. In the letter I applied some of the things you taught.

The results were stunning!

We normally hope to gross between 20 and 25 thousand dollars in the one-day sale. This year, the private sale customers started calling early and showed up throughout the sale, and we had spill-overs the following week. As near as I can calculate so far, we did almost $55,000.00 for the event. That’s more than twice as much as normal… about a 129% increase!

I conservatively estimate the increased profit from this one event alone will pay for a full-price newsletter subscription for at least the next 21 years and 8 months.

What a great first experience with your ideas. For the first time in a long while, I’m excited about what the future has in store. As long as you don’t sell it to my competitors, I highly recommend your newsletter, too.”

Laura Jones, Spanish Fork UT

“This seminar has opened not just doors, but whole worlds for me. It’s just incredible! You made concepts easy to understand and logical… and doable! I never would have gone out and found this information on my own. It’s the best investment anyone could make.


“I recently got a fortune cookie that said, ‘You will soon have a miracle in your life.’ I feel like this workshop has been that miracle.”

Sally Darling, Irvine CA
“…Tremendous amount of information about marketing in a very short period of time. Got more from this than classes taken in college.”

Pam Kombrink (Realtor), Geneva IL

“…The intense, 3-day marketing course gave me a new, successful approach to marketing. I also did the one-on-one coaching program. Our results are unbelievable and… Better ads = tons of calls Better tracking = $$$ Savings, because we know where to spend the money.

More $$-productive use of our time because we now have an arsenal of material ready to go at all times and a much better marketing plan.

Business increased 300%!”

Slobodanka Franky, Las Vegas NV

“…Outstanding! Just wish it was 2 days!”
