The Pandemic Proof “Phone Money Blueprint” - Just Swipe and Deploy This Step-By-Step System to Make an Extra Mortgage Payment by the End of the Week
(Even During a Recession)

Think About All The Ways You Think You Could Save Your Business Right Now

Government bailouts... 
Winning the lottery... 
Having everything magically return to the good ol’ days...
Well, I’m sorry to say... but none of those are a real fix.
The bailouts come too slowly... if at all.
The lottery? Yeah right...
And that magical “return to good ol’ days”? Well, it ain't happening. 
Those days are over and they aren’t coming back... we’re in a new normal now.
But what if there was a way that your phone could save your business?... And allow you to quickly and easily increase your income no matter where you were, who you were with, or what you were doing?
And if it worked in any economy ... good or bad... boom times or recession?
Sounds like wishful thinking, right?
But it’s not... 
Just look around you... at the park or even the grocery store... everywhere you go you see people taking selfie videos and then hopping in their new Mercedes or Tesla and driving away...
You go on social media and see people living amazing lives and working from home...
It makes you think, “Why can’t that be me?”
The answer is...
It can.

Today I want to tell you about a NEW “Income Accelerator”... that can save your business and make you extra income anytime, anywhere, and in any economy... all with just your phone.

This is extremely important for you to hear ... especially if your business is struggling and you want to add an extra $1,000 to $5,000 to your bottom line in the next month.
In this short article, you’ll discover a little-known secret that top entrepreneurs are using to rapidly grow their brands and generate thousands of dollars in predictable income each month -- no matter what’s happening in the rest of the world or how bad the economy gets.
In fact, with this secret…
You can use your phone to automatically make an extra $1,000 to $2,500 in as little as 24 hours.

My Fellow Entrepreneurs, 

If you need to make a “paycheck pivot” and find a proven system to generate instant income on command… to save and grow your business… and to do it without a fancy website, sales funnel, or single paid ad… then this will be the most important message you ever read. 

Here's why:

Hi, my name is Craig Ballantyne. I’m a best-selling author and business coach with over 5,000 students and clients around the world -- including 8-figure entrepreneurs, CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, New York Times best-selling authors, and Hollywood Actors. 

I’ve personally helped more than 250 business owners – many of them just like you – build 7-figure businesses in as little as 6 months.

More importantly, I’ve helped over 1,000 entrepreneurs go from “broke to financially free” in as little as 3 weeks. Some of them have even earned thousands of dollars overnight ... and I’ll show you how they did it below.

But here’s the crazy part. 

Even though Entrepreneur Magazine named me a “Business Titan” and “Social Media Expert” back in 2019, only a few short years ago.. 

I Couldn’t Market on Social Media if My Life Depended On It!


In fact, my friends and clients regularly made fun of me because I was “that guy” who still used a 2010 Blackberry...in 2016.

And before I learned the system I’m going to share with you today, this was a BIG problem. 
Because I was in the middle of one of the biggest career changes in my life. 
I’d just shut down my $5.5 million/year Turbulence Training fitness business and decided to dive into business coaching and consulting full time. 
The problem was, even as an acclaimed business coach (with four 7-figure successes under his belt), I was struggling to transition from “Old School” marketing to the new way of marketing.
And frankly… I was scared that I was going to get left behind as a “dinosaur”.  
Can you relate?

My website Early to Rise was generating a ton of traffic (more than 200,000 unique visitors a month at the time) but few qualified leads. 

My email marketing was ridiculously good...but apparently the members of my list who wanted a “15 minute 6 pack” and “metabolic belly buster” programs weren’t the best fit for exclusive high-end business consulting (go figure). 

My Facebook ads were generating some revenue. But it was barely enough to fuel my Quest Bar addiction and far from the “life changing” amounts I was accustomed to.  

No matter how hard I tried or what I tried, I just couldn’t grow my business using the same strategies that worked back in 2009… even though I was doing everything I was “supposed” to do


  • I self-published a best-selling book The Perfect Day Formula (40,000 copies and counting)
  • ​​I wrote more than 2,976 blog posts (yes, that’s the actual number)
  • I sent 1-2 emails a day to my list of more than 213,000 people
  • ​I did more than 337 podcast interviews to get more leads
But nothing worked. 

And when I told my peers and “old school” mentors about this, they told me to “Do more podcast interviews” and “Write more blog content”. 

They said I just wasn’t marketing “hard” enough.

But those things only gave me more anxiety… adding more work to my plate with almost nothing to show for it… 

If I’m being honest, I started to wonder if I’d made the right decision shutting down a multimillion dollar business to become a full-time coach. 

Then one day, by a stroke of pure luck, my friend and business partner Bedros Keuilian gave me a piece of advice that would change my life forever

“Dude” he said, “You’re marketing your services the old way. Instagram is where all of the best buyers are today. Go create an account and start pushing hard there. It’s working great for me.” 

Now… I wish I could say that I immediately took action on his advice, launched my account and the rest was history. 

But the truth is, I stubbornly ignored him for almost a year. 

I convinced myself that Instagram “wasn’t for me.” 

And I used every excuse in the book to do it…

  • Lame Excuse #1:  No one buys coaching on Instagram.
  • ​Lame Excuse #2:  Instagram is just for teenagers and college kids.
  • ​Lame Excuse #3:  I’m not an influencer with a ton of followers
  • ​Lame Excuse #4:  I don’t know what to post
  • ​Lame Excuse #5:  I don’t have time for this.
And so I continued using the same outdated tactics I had for a decade… and continued getting the same lame results

Eventually, after a month of painfully low revenue, I decided to bite the bullet and launch my account. 

And for the first few months, nothing happened

I generated a grand total of 500 followers and $0 and if I’m being honest… I was happy about it in a twisted sort of way. 

Because I thought that I was “right”... Instagram doesn’t work for my business! 

Well… That’s what I thought. 

But then, while I was sitting at the airport, I realized that I was very very very wrong

One of my followers had sent me a DM wanting to learn more about my coaching services. 

I didn’t think anything would come from it, but I had nothing better to do so I started a conversation with him and answered his questions. 

And then he sent me a message I’ll never forget. 

“I’m down… send me a link and I’ll go ahead and send you the payment.” 

Now, before I continue, let me be clear… 

I wasn’t selling a $100 phone consult or some $500/month coaching package. 

This was a $5,000 group coaching workshop. 

$5,000 for 2 days of coaching with 11 other entrepreneurs. 

And a stranger I’d met through Instagram wanted to send me the money so he could join. At first, I didn’t think he was serious, but I sent him the link and a few minutes later… 

I got a notification telling me I’d just made a $5,000 sale. 

I think it’s safe to say that airport visit was probably the most important trip of my life, because it led me to create a simple 3 step system to generate instant income in any business… from anywhere in the world… even if you don’t have a huge following or haven’t used Instagram before… and even during a recession.  

A system my clients call “stupid simple” that required no list building, no cold calling, and almost no direct selling… 

In fact, with this secret… 

Complete strangers were reaching out to ME and asking to buy my services and work with my business.

Almost overnight I went from… 

  • Spending thousands of dollars on paid advertising that barely broke even
  • Working insane 60-70 hour work weeks just to stay at the 6-figure level
  • ​Struggling to find a single qualified lead and wasting hours each week on “sales calls to nowhere”
  • ​Wasting half my revenue on useless marketing strategies that made more work for me and my team (without giving us more of an ROI)

  • Building a highly-targeted following of hungry leads who slide into my DM’s, credit card in hand, and read to buy … for free.
  • Effortlessly converting clients on my highest ticket offers (like my $7,500 group coaching workshop or $30k/year mastermind) … without spending hours on the phone trying to hard sell them.
  • Slashing 15 hours off my work week and making more money than ever before while having the freedom I wanted to travel, relax, and enjoy long walks with my partners in crime, Daisy the Dog and my girlfriend Michelle.
My floundering coaching business took off overnight. 

Sales flooded into my business -- DAILY. 

People from every corner of the globe (who I’d never met and who’d never read my blog, books, or emails) started reaching out to me and asking to pay me 5-figures to work with them

Within a year, I went from struggling to attract new clients to making more than 6-figures a month… 

All from my “dumb phone” and all without begging leads to buy, building a huge list, or spending hours each day facing bitter rejections on cold calls. 

If I’m being honest, even I was skeptical of my success. 

I was making sales so quickly and so easily, I figured it had to be some sort of “fluke”

That I’d somehow “gamed” the system and it would all come crashing down the second Zuckerburg and his cronies changed the ‘algo’

But it didn’t… 

It just got better. 

Eventually, I decided to share my method with a few of my struggling coaching clients to see if it worked for them. 

And guess what happened? 

They transformed their businesses just as quickly and easily as I did! 


I had discovered a “fool proof” system that lets entrepreneurs--even entrepreneurs who aren’t good at marketing and have never used social media before--drive thousands in profits to their business in as little as 24-hours

A system that consistently and predictably helped my clients get results like these… 
I’d discovered a completely free way of marketing your business that lets even the most introverted and “sales-shy” entrepreneur generate hundreds of leads and dozens of sales in just a few short days.

  • Without risking thousands of dollars on ad campaigns that might work not work.
  • Without adding 10 hours to your workweek and working a “second job” to get it going.
  • And without being a world-famous influencer...or even having 1,000 followers.
 Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? 

And I understand. Sometimes I still have a hard time believing this works as well as it does. 

But if you’ll stick around until the end of this letter and see the proof for yourself, I think you’ll be blown away by what you find. 

It’ll only take a few minutes and will help you generate leads, close sales, and generate instant cash for your business faster and easier than you ever have before


Here’s the brutal truth you won’t hear in The 4-Hour Work Week or Scaling Up

In 2020: 

The “old school” business strategies will KILL your chances of making any real money and growing your impact, income, and influence to the level you want. 

In fact, using those old tactics almost guarantees that you’ll get left behind and have your best clients and customers stolen by the competition.

Here’s why: 

If you follow the “conventional wisdom” and entrepreneurial dogma, you can expect to spend about 80-hours a week on:

  • Cold Calling
  • ​Podcasting
  • ​Blogging
  • ​Emailing
  • ​Guest Posting
  • ​SEO
  • ​Ad Optimization
  • ​Consulting Calls
Or other “slow lane” strategies that steal your time and energy and leave you burned out and anxious… with nothing left in the tank for yourself or your family

And I’m guessing you didn’t become an entrepreneur to have less freedom, fun, and family time, right? 

What’s worse is this… 

If you keep playing the “slow game” you’ll likely lose most (if not all) of your clients to bigger brands who have huge budgets--which is the ONLY way to make the “slow lane strategies” work-- and teams and can out-spend, outwork, and out sell you every day of the week. 

This means you’ll be scrounging for leads every day, turning your business into a glorified job that barely brings in enough profits to make ends meet. 

You see, the old ways worked great back in the early 2000s. 

But that was almost 20 years ago. 


  • Everyone and their mother-in-law had their own blog and email list…
  • Before “influencer culture” took off and every 17-year old with an iPhone started pumping out content…
  • Before 80% of businesses used Facebook to market their offers and grow their revenue…
But with all of the craziness going on in the world today--especially with the “Corona Crisis” and recession we’re facing right now--the old school strategies don’t work

They’re basically a guarantee that you’ll invest hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars for a few low-ticket sales… and that’s if you’re lucky. 

Just consider a few of these crazy small business statistics…

  • 91% of email leads will unsubscribe from a list they opted into -- meaning that your email list is basically like filling a leaky bucket
  • More than 54% of all emails sent by small businesses land in the dreaded “spam” folder -- and it doesn’t matter how good your email marketing is if half of your list never sees it
  • More than 80% of new leads generated online will never translate into sales -- so even if you are a lead generation wizard it doesn’t mean you’ll make real money from those leads
  • 90% of all web pages generate zero traffic from Google and more than 67% of all organic traffic goes to the top five results on the search page -- unless you have a dedicated content team who knows SEO front and back, you’ll struggle to make a single dime from your blog
That’s how much the online world has changed over the past few years. 

But it’s not all bad news… for smart marketers who are willing to do things differently, the opportunities are endless… 

  • 56% of people say they’re afraid of missing out if they don’t stay connected to social media on a regular basis -- making your social presence one of the most valuable assets your company has
  • 78% of salespeople using social media outperform their peers. They make more sales, earn more money, and have a higher closing rate because they understand the power of social selling -- and when you start using this system, you will too
  • More than 95% of all U.S citizens have a cell phone and on average, they spend 3.5 hours a day on their phone and 55 minutes of the day on Instagram -- your customers are on Instagram… and they’re on it almost every single day (and if YOU aren’t on Instagram, you’re getting left behind)
  • And the craziest of all? Only 7% of businesses say that social selling is a priority for their organization.
Let me repeat that… 

Even though almost every single person in the country uses social media, specifically Instagram, and even though the businesses and individuals who use social media make more than those who don’t… 

Only 7% of businesses are actually prioritizing social selling! 

And after auditing (literally) thousands of Instagram accounts I can tell you that of the 7% who use social selling… maybe 20% of them are using it the right way

Which gives YOU an unprecedented opportunity to cash in on the social gold rush before the rest of the business world catches on

So how can YOU use social selling to generate thousands in predictable income for your business? 

It’s actually pretty simple. 

Just do the opposite of what other digital marketers and “interpreneurs” are doing!

Most digital marketers are obsessed with building a huge list, SEO, funnel hacking, and paid advertising, or as I like to call it “doing things the HARD way.”

And those who DO try to use social selling do it all wrong… 

They try to “game” the system by buying fake followers to artificially boost their credibility (something that can get you blacklisted for life) … spending hours a day drooling over hashtags to increase their reach by 0.0001%... and spending thousands of dollars a month to design pretty pictures that get a lot of likes but don’t drive a single dollar. 

But the smartest and richest marketers don’t do ANY of those things. 

Instead we use what I call “Social Story Selling”. 

A strategy that’s given me (and more than 731 entrepreneurs) complete financial freedom. 

Here’s how it works:

Social Story Selling is based on THREE FOUNDATIONAL TRUTHS about growing your business in the internet economy…

  • The “old school” digital marketing strategies like blogging, Facebook marketing, and traditional email marketing DON’T work
  • The fastest way to grow your business is to GO WHERE YOUR CUSTOMERS ARE and then attract them TO you using authentic story selling and valuable content
  • The more you can “manufacture celebrity” and position yourself as THE expert in your field, the easier it is grow your business… and the easiest way to manufacture celebrity is through strategic Instagram marketing
These three simple truths took me from struggling to make a single sale… 

...To completely filling up my pipeline and making well over $1 million in sales in less than 18 months. 

And YOU can learn how to do the same thing -- whether you’re a seasoned social media expert or a complete newbie with only a few hundreds followers. 

In fact, when you use Social Story Selling, you can build a nearly limitless stream of eager-to-buy leads who come to YOU every single day. 

And the craziest part is… it’s a LOT easier than you think. 

It’s WAY easier than writing a new blog post every day, spending $10,000+ every month on Facebook ads (only to have your account shut down without any explanation), recording a new podcast every week, or building out huge and confusing funnels

When you master the art and science of social story selling, you’ll never “struckle” to grow your business again… instead, you’ll get to write your own checks and make thousands of dollars every month by simply recording your journey and unique insights and sharing them with the world

And over the past few years, I’ve discovered dozens of high-level social selling strategies you won’t learn anywhere else. Things like….

  • Influencer marketing and Instagram algorithm hacks (that I learned from the man who manages the Kardashian’s IG profiles) to 4X your followers and engagement overnight
  • The EXACT posting frequency, timing, and schedule to maximize your engagement and drive thousands in new sales.
  • “Forbidden” words, phrases, and strategies 90% of marketers use that destroy their account’s performance and all but guarantee they’ll never make a sale (in fact, there are 3 commonly used words guaranteed to drop post performance by 75% or more)
  • ​Word-for-word DM scripts that convert skeptical prospects into raving customers (without you ever picking up the phone or talking to them in-person)
And a whole lot more. 

Obviously, I can’t share all of these secrets with you here (I would actually get sued if I revealed 2 of these strategies to the public) BUT… 

...You CAN get these secrets today, quickly, and easily, with NO risk. 


The Social Story Selling System

The EXACT system many of the world’s best entrepreneurs are using to predictably generate 6 and even 7-figure income streams through Instagram

A step-by-step blueprint I’ve given to my $25k/day coaching clients to help them quickly transform their businesses and make millions with social selling. 

You won’t find this information on Google or YouTube and you certainly won’t find it from the mainstream gurus and influencers trying to make a quick buck peddling outdated info. 

But today, you have the opportunity to get the exact systems--including swipe and deploy campaigns, detailed posting schedules, word-for-word scripts, and deep dive interviews--immediately. 

Here’s just a quick teaser of what can happen in your life and business when you apply the Social Story Selling System… 
What would it do for your life and business if you could tap into a proven system to predictably generate thousands of dollars of “cash on command” in as little as 10 hours a week? 

If, instead of going to bed with crushing anxiety… wondering how you’re going to meet payroll… burned out from the 60+ hour work weeks… and questioning if you’re even cut out to be an entrepreneur in the first place… 


  • Had the freedom to work only 4 days a week, taking a long weekend, every weekend to spend time with your family, go on adventures with your friends, and enjoy the finest things this life has to offer?
  • Never had to worry about money again and knew that any time you wanted to make a big purchase or needed a quick injection of extra cash you could easily print money on command using nothing but your phone?
  • Woke up to a HUGE list of new leads and sales every single day and actually made money while you slept?
  • ​Could take off two weeks from your business without touching your email, checking your phone, or even THINKING about work… and knew that when you came back from Italy, or Greece or France (or anywhere else you want to go!) you’d have MORE money in the bank than when you left?
It might sound like a pipe dream, but these are the EXACT results my best clients get when they use this system.  

Even more importantly… 

This system has worked for entrepreneurs in EVERY industry and at EVERY level including…

  • The world’s #1 rodeo star who used the Social Story Selling System to build a 6-figure eCom brand selling belt buckles (nope, I’m not kidding).
  • ​Single mothers looking to make an extra $1,000/month to pay for their children’s private school tuition
  • ​Coaches and consultants who charge $5,000 a MONTH for their services
  • First-time entrepreneurs who have NEVER used social media before or sold a single product online
  • ​Brick and mortar stores looking to pivot their incomes and use the internet to save their dying business
And everyone in between. 

It’s worked for them and it will work for you too.

And much more. 

Now… you’re probably thinking, “I’m sold on the system and OBVIOUSLY I want to make an extra $1,000 in instant cash by this time next week… But how much does this thing cost?” 

And that’s where things get really exciting. 

When you consider that I’ve literally had clients pay me $5,000 to show them this exact system, it’s safe to say that I could easily charge $1,000 for this information and you’d STILL be getting an amazing deal. 

ESPECIALLY when you consider the fact that, on average, the clients who actually put in the work with this system generate a 500-1,000% ROI in their first MONTH.
But I’m not going to charge anywhere near that. 

Because the truth is… I care about YOU. I want you to succeed and I want to make sure you have the tools and strategies you need to protect your business and family during these unprecedented times. 

I know that with the “Corona Crisis” times are hard -- especially for entrepreneurs. 

Which is why I’ve decided to do something crazy. 

Normally, the Social Story Selling System retails for $997. And even at that price, it’s a steal. 

But like I said… I care about you and want to make sure that you get all of the tools you need without jeopardizing your financial security. 

So, until this crisis passes, you can get the ENTIRE Social Story Selling System for a one-time payment of $797

      I’m not exaggerating when I say that I’ve NEVER offered this system for such a low price before and I will NEVER offer it at this price again.

      And in case you’re wondering… yes, offering this system for such a low price benefits ME too

      Because once you apply it in your business and see the results you’re able to achieve with this ONE system, I’m confident that you’ll want more of my training and coaching (and better yet, you’ll be able to pay for it with a single video!)

      The Ultimate "Child's Promise to His Mother" Guarantee
      Let me tell you a story about a little boy will do everything he can to make sure you succeed.

      Once upon a time, someone sold something to my mom that didn't work. She was upset, they lied and didn't stand behind the product they sold. My mom tried, but they wouldn't refund her money.
      On our ride home from the store, my mom gripped the steering wheel harder than anything I’ve ever seen. I remember feeling how frustrated and sad she was.

      Someone took advantage of her. No, someone took advantage of our entire family, and they did NOTHING to make it right.

      On that day, 4-year old me promised my mother I would always "give da money back, Mommy!" if you were ever unhappy with me. I would never be the type of person who didn’t make things right with my customers and clients.

      So listen, if for any reason within the next 90 days you feel that Social Cash Machine is not what you expected to send an email to support@earlytorise.com and we will give you a full refund.

      I never want you ever to feel bad—that's why I want to put the risk 100% on the little 4-year-old boy who dedicated his life to helping other people transform. The little boy was me.
