Would You Like Me To Personally Fix your Software Project … For Free?

I’m looking for a “dream” client for whom I can bring in massive success by fixing their software project.

If you’re that client, I will personally work with you one-on-one in your business to help you get the profitable business results that you deserve from your project.

You Pay Nothing Out Of Pocket – Ever.

Here’s why:

The first thing I’m going to do for you is to personally help you create a strategic plan to get your software project firmly on the road to success.

There’s no charge for this and it only takes about 45-90 minutes for us to do together.

(After doing this type of thing for 14 years straight, I’ve become pretty good at getting fast results).

Anyway, I’ll even do most of the work for you: identifying the root causes of your project’s problems, and showing you how to overcome them.

At the end of this initial planning session one of these three things will happen:

  1. You love the plan and decide to implement it on your own. If this is the case, I’ll wish you the best of luck and ask that you keep in touch with me to let me know how you’re doing.
  2. You love the plan and ask to become my client so I can personally help you execute, maximize, and profit from it ASAP. If that’s the case, you’ll be on the real fast-track to results.
  3. In the unlikely and unprecedented event that you feel like you wasted your time, I will send you $500 as payment immediately. No questions asked. Your time is your most valuable asset you have, and I respect that.

It really is that simple and there’s no catch.

Think about this.

The “worst” that can happen is you get $500 for “wasting” 45-90 minutes of your time.

The best that can happen is we work together one-on-one to leapfrog over your problems and find a way to deliver results FAST.

Here’s how it’ll work:

First, we get on the phone or Skype one-on-one and go over your project.

I take a look at what you’ve got, what you’re doing, and what you want to achieve.

Once we have those “raw materials”, I help you come up with a strategic plan of action to immediately get fixing your problems.

There are a number of ways I might do this for you.

For example, I might show you how to control the chaos that’s surrounding you, identify where you need to strengthen your team, put my finger on how to properly track and whack your bugs, or find a way to dramatically cut your project’s timescales or budget without affecting quality.

The aim is to stop you floundering, give you back control, and put you on a definite track to success.

And like I said, there’s no charge for this.

So Why Would I Offer It?

Two reasons:

First of all, I enjoy it. This type of thing is what I do best, and it makes me very, very happy to see someone achieve success (and all that comes with it) as a result of the help I give them.

Second, it’s how I attract top-level clients. Here’s how that works:

Assuming you’re happy and you want me to help you implement your plan, and make sure you stay on the path to success, you’ll probably want to continue working together long term so I can help you to deliver the project and let you reap the rewards.

If this is the case, I might invite you to become a consulting client. My “fee” is $3,950 a month, for one day of my time spread across the month, but if you think about it, it really doesn’t “cost” you anything. Why?

Because I expect to make you much more than $3,950 from quickly harvesting the benefits of your project. And if we keep working together over the next 12 months, I’m confident I can get your project to a highly profitable place.

So you’ll see the value by the time we hang up the phone – without ever spending a cent.

And look. If you don’t want to become a client, don’t worry about it.

You won’t get any sales pitch or pressure from me of any kind, ever.

In fact, here’s my “HUGELY CONFIDENT PROMISE” to you:

You Find Our Conversation To Be Incredibly Valuable Or I’ll Pay You $500 Immediately To Compensate You For Your Time.

Now, obviously this is an amazing offer which you’ll probably never see from any other software project guy in the world.

Think about it.

I’m personally generating a success plan for you up front – for free – and then letting you pay me if (and only if) you decide to work together with me long-term.

Plus, I’m taking it one BOLD step further by guaranteeing you’ll find this free plan immensely valuable – or I’ll pay you $500 just for “wasting” your time.

Just tell me, and it’s yours. No questions asked.

Who Else Would Do That?

NOBODY. (I checked).

But I’m happy to put it on the line like this because my consulting clients always get great results.

End of story.

My methods work, and I’ve proven it on project after project. I know that if we work together we’ll achieve success.

Anyway, as you can imagine, I’ll get a LOT of interest from this letter. And that’s why I need you to read this next part carefully:

This Is NOT For Everybody. Here’s Who I CAN Help.

I’m VERY picky about who I’ll speak with and I’ve got a strict (but reasonable) set of criteria that needs to be met in order for us to proceed.

Here it is:

1. Your project has to seem achievable to a sane person!
If you need to fire a rocket ship to Mars by next Friday then good luck to you, but I can’t help you with it.

2. Your project has to have a budget of at least $150,000 over its whole lifetime, including support and maintenance.
I ask for this because we can’t do useful work if we’ve got no resources to achieve anything.

3. Your company has to have profits of at least $100,000 per year.
I don’t want you stressing out about affording my “no-brainer” fee.

4. The project has to be important to you, in a meaningful sense.
I need your full buy-in to get the results you want, so you have to be focused on getting those results too.

5. You MUST follow directions.
(Don’t worry, I won’t ask you to do anything weird.) After all, if you don’t actually implement the stuff I give you, neither one of us will make money.

That’s it! Those are all my requirements.

Here’s What I Want You To Do Next.

If you meet the criteria above and would like to talk to me personally about getting rapid results, then I’ll happily set aside some time for you.

Here’s how the process works:

First, you’ll need to fill in an application. Don’t worry, it’s simple and unobtrusive.

I just need to know who you are, what your project is aiming to do, the benefits you’re looking for, and the problems you need my help in overcoming.

Here’s What Will Happen After That.

Once I have your application, Victoria from my office will contact you and set up a time for us to talk.

She’s been my “right hand” for 4 years, is my ONLY assistant, and she’ll be contacting you in 48 business hours at the most.

Our initial call will be between 45 and 90 minutes.

This is where we really begin working to figure out exactly what you want… and how to make it happen.

I’ll painstakingly review your project and your current difficulties, and I’ll deliver a plan to get fixing things immediately.

If you see the value in becoming high level client, great! We can talk about it.

And if you don’t want to become a client – that’s OK too. It’s no big deal.

And if you tell me I’ve wasted your time, I’ll give you $500 immediately.

So you literally can’t lose.

(By the way – I’ve never had anyone feel like their time was wasted. EVER. That’s why I can make this offer. I DELIVER. Would anyone else take such a risk?)


This opportunity is extremely limited because of the intense one-on-one time needed in order to provide you with results.

Therefore, it is physically impossible for me to work with more than a handful of people.

Also, you should realize there’s a very large demand for personal one- on-one help from me, and what I’m offering to you is unprecedented.

So with that said, know that the window of opportunity won’t be open long.

If you feel like this is right for you, click here to leave your application and let’s talk.


Talk soon,

Ian Howlett.
