When I launched Time Effective Cycling Training after four years of blogging, I was curious to see how people would respond to it. I know that an e-book is different from a physical book, yet it offers some advantages that you don’t get from physical books (e.g. instant delivery and no shipping costs).
Also people have the chance to get free e-mail support to maximize their performance with the training programs included. That’s a great service and a perfect option for me to develop my skills as a cycling coach.
Since this was my very first product, I wanted people to be happy. So, I decided to offer a 100% money back guarantee within the first 30 days after purchase. Many of my friends and family members warned me about offering that guarantee, because there was a potential risk that someone would just ”˜steal’ my e-book. They were wrong.
So far, less than 1% had asked for a refund. That is an extremely low return percentage on a digital product and that indicates to me that people are quite satisfied. It’s more than likely that there is a cheater among the refunds, but I don’t care.
A low refund percentage is great, but what is much more interesting to me is how well the training programs work. I have had a good feeling from several e-mails during the past months. Still, I wanted to hear more stories, because that is an important part of my learning process.
So I decided to simply ask my customers what results they have achieved with Time Effective Cycling Training. Most people have implemented several of my training techniques. They have used the very popular and extremely effective VO2 Max Booster Program and/or started on the 16 week training program.
Here are some of the great comments I received:
“I have realized that it is possible to use less time on and at the same time keep up the fitness level.”
“I have improved my Vo2max test result by more than 40 watts in just 2 months with only approx 6 hours weekly traning.”
“VO2 threshold improved from 290W to 354W after 3 rounds of the 14 day VO2 Max program.”
“Concise, practical, balanced approach to training. I Especially liked the focus on shorter workouts to develop vo2 max and anaerobic capacity.”
“The range of workouts for the intensity levels and the explanations of their effect in your training made things crystal clear. It was organized so you can select a training effort level and have reasonable expectations of power gains. Reading the book has given me the drive to try and take my training to the next level.”
“The organization, descriptions, and clarity of the presented material was outstanding. Like I said before, I couldn’t put it down and just kept reading. I think it would have a positive influence on anyone to go out there and train hard.”
“While you are training, you feel that you are doing really hard work, which is a good feeling. The program is also varied enough not to become boring i.e. short intervals, long intervals etc.”
“I did a modified version of the vo2 max booster. Over 14 days I did roughly 12 of the intervals (I was doing a lot of teaching at that point in time) and increased my 5 minute power from 377 to 404 watts at 185 pounds.”
Overall, I conclude that my first e-book has been a huge success and I’m very motivated now.
I look forward to develop future products or services for you. Also I look forward to hearing from the readers when they have finished the entire 16week training plan, because that training program uses the best principles about cycling training I have learned the past 10 years.
