How I made $1200 this past weekend selling mobile sites

Hey gang,

My fellow Warriors!!! How ya all doin' tonight? Alright!

Well,, it took a while to put together but,, I finally got it together and launched my mobile biz. I have been here for a while now getting all the info and everything set up,,, whew!!! A lot of you have seen me. (This is just my first crack at mobile,, always been a IM'er for the past 10 years,, well,, a dabbler with some ok success, but now I may quit my day job,, and I make a lot)

Now,,I will tell you what I did to get $1200 buck-a-roonies,, 1200 smack-a-doodles,, 1200 samolians. Cold hard cash, my brothas. On my 1st attempt no less!

Ok,, It took a while but that's because I had to go through a ton of materials, training courses,, and bought every wso for mobile marketing. I went in with a NO FAIL attitude. You MUST have this in order to succeed. Aim to be the greatest ever! So if you're not,, you'll still be pretty damn good.

Ok, Ok,,, 1st)... I decided on a biz name. Rockstar Mobile Media (Free)

2nd),, I got a domain with that name,, or close. ($10?)

3rd.) I filed the name with the city. You must do this to get the papers to open a bank account in your biz name(in the U.S.). Don't forget this people, you can't just get checks made out to a business name and cash them,, it won't work. And what biz wants to write checks to a persons name? They dont know you. A business seems more trustworthy than some dude sayin' "hey, write me a check, dammit. ($40 I think.)

4th) I opened a bank account in my new biz name. Need a place to dump the cash that's allegedly gonna be raining down on my head. (free)

5th) Next I got a new phone #. Only $9mo,, but worth it. (I have another biz so I don't wanna mix up calls, ("Hello, Rockstar,, oops I mean...),

6th) Website. Now, this is not totally necssary, but I want to look establised and professional. But you can do this without one,, right up until a client wants to see YOUR site. Also, a site provides a place to educate potential clients and them have them fill out their info. Like a squeeze page but much larger .

Ok,, then I got the Localizer Lead tool. I think from here. $97 bucks. With this software, you can choose any niche, in any city in the world, and it will seek out all the info about every business in that niche, in that city. It gives name, numbers, websites and even emails. I ONLY have used the emails so far. By the way,, I chose bailbonds in San Diego, CA. Turns out the biz I sold 2 sites to was in Minnasota. I did it all by email. NO PERSONAL CONTACT! This software takes 20 seconds to find 300 leads,, not 300 emails,, but 300 leads.

So, I picked out all the emails and sent out a blast with a simple email that said I can't view your company website on my phone. With a little expanation of their problem and how I can help to solve it. Very soft selling. Not even selling,, just trying to get them to see a video. So, I sent out about 100 emails. I got 1 response so far but, 1 was worth $1200!
And the emails took about 10 minutes. I only email out 25 at a time, And I use Bcc. ( I read up on spamming) Well, one bailbonds company emailed me,, asked how much,, I said $597 + Hosting. He said Ok,,,

Now, I have WillR's My Mobile Business and learned a ton of stuff from his training course. But I used Mobile Marketing XT to build the sites,, super awesome software, combined with Will's Lil Red Snapper. It's drag and drop,, super easy,, you can easily install video as well on these sites.

So, I made up a site in about 2 hours,, sent it to him as a mock up,, he liked it, and said he had another location and wanted a whole new site for that one too. $597 X 2= $1194.00 + Monthly hosting. I made the 2nd site even faster. Maybe 1 hour. I'm not kidding. This stuff is easy and fast to do and you can make a killing. Yes,, I'm on the high end,, but isn't that where you wanna be?

So,, now I'm gonna do more email blasts in other niches to test what's best,, if there is such a thing. I tried Chiropractors and I got 2 calls that I still need to respond to. They were missed calls and they didn't leave a message, so I'm gonna try my hand at semi-cold calling. Hope I don't stu stu ststststst, stutter.

Any questions?

Thanks to all my fellow Warriors that have made $1200 smackers possible. In 3 hours,, or 4,, does it matter?

Update 2/9/14: Sorry everyone for not responding as often. All posts must always fade away at some point to make room for the more modern stuff. But, just to add a little more to this post, the dude that I sold these 2 sites came back and asked for 2 more,, so, I made nearly $2400 and $76 monthly just for his 4 sites (many others as well). I've been focusing on Real Estate and Facebook and will be back with some awesome info! Stay tuned. And, I got my site hacked (The Warrior Syndicate.com) but am finally rebuilding!!! Me----> ...... I'm a full blown IM'er and have a few ventures going at the moment. I like to make money in every niche,,, and I wanna master them all!!! Hahaha!!! And I'm gonna put some great, free informative videos on my site real soon

    The Mobile Marketing XT is drag and drop system. They host the sites,, I got them down to $4 mo by asking. But,, it's almost $400. So,, it's not cheap. But I made the money back already. And these were my first sites other than my own.

    Robert,

    Congratulations on your success.

    I've seen you doing a lot of prep for this over the last month or so and am glad to see you finally got your first sale... and not a bad one at that.

    By the way, I like the name of your business.

    Nice timeline - very helpful. I did an emailing and got only one response (which told me his site looks okay on a mobile phone - hardly). Anyway, that's a good niche for mobile.

    Reading your post encourages me. I definitely need to get some sites sold as I have the same software available to me, but I am paying monthly as part of their broader Apps/Mobile Web/SMS package.

    How much did you charge for the hosting and did you have any problems getting the ftp lo-gin info to the main site (did he know it or did you have to contact the original web designer)?

    Well, I jumped on this so fast I literally forgot to mention hosting. So, I would've charged $29mo for hosting and maintenece. (more for larger sites,, maybe $49mo? Sounds good to me) But, I pay $4 mo. so I asked for $10mo X 2 = $20 a month. And since I hit him up for more cash on a monthly basis, because I forgot, I threw in QR codes for each site.

    What can I say,, I'm a giver. Over deliver, right?

    He actually refered me to his designer and he gave up the info I needed (or I said I would choke it outta him,,, hahaha,, kidding, he was helpful)
    It was super easy to redirect the site. I don't know what all the fuss is about. Coding is soooooooooooo simple,, you know,, like quantum physics and talking with Stephen Hawking.

    The X-man (or Rockstar)

    p.s. did I mention the guy was so stoked, he said he would mention me to all his business buddies. Word of mouth advertising can't be beat!

    At first I started with gmail. But, I consulted with a "big wig" friend at a worldwide company and he explained all about email marketing on a global level. So,, I did the 1st mail blast with the big "G". But now, I'm gonna do extensive tracking with iContact. My buddy explained that it's easier to CALL leads when you know they have opened your email, and knowing they clicked your link is even better. Then you can easily call, or have a little more confidence. (iContact $14mo for 500 contacts and 3000 emails)enough to get a great start. and cheap to add more 1000 contacts: $19mo

    Let see:
    Domain: $10 You may find cheaper
    Register w/city: $42 You should to get a bank account
    Phone #: $9 Not a must
    Website: $97 You can get cheaper, I'm just lazy
    Localizer Software: $97 Or do it manually for free
    Mobile Marketing XT: $397. But there are many others than this.
    that are much cheaper. try WillR's, Quentin's, Niel's, and so many more. See whats right for you. I buy everything so, I'm not the smartest at being low budget. You can refine this down to almost nothing. (almost) Like I said,, i'm lazy and look for thing that are "done for you".

    I started with gmail. I did about 100 emails but learned that tracking can be super important for other types of marketing,, such as calling. When you know someone has viewed your message, then you know, at the very least, they have some idea of what you're about if you call. Not totally cold calling. Now I'm using iContact

    Well, all of the products and courses that I have gone through talk about email marketing. I'm lazy (ok, not really) but I wanted to have a simple way to do this biz. And email is it. So, if you haven't seen "Localizer Lead Tool" you need to. It provides leads by the truck load. (in 20 seconds) You choose a niche, choose a city anywhere in the world, and it gets you all the info about all the companies in that niche, in that city. (names, phone numbers, websites, emails) It's AWESOME!!!

    Let me just add I just made a good mistake. I'm sending emails as we speak here in San Diego, Wednesday, 10am. I'm doing an email to real estate agents and I sent a blast out to 16 agents. I got a response back immediately. She said i have a great hook because she saw the subject line: "I can't view your company website on my phone!" and she immediately went to their site.

    But , she wrote and said, "Sorry to say, but I checked our site and it works fine on mobile" (oops) But,, she said also, "That is a great hook. I will keep you in my database if we need any of your services."

    So,, I guess the subject line works well. The software said they weren't mobile. It does have a fault rate of I think of a few percent. But even though it was wrong, it could very well lead to something in the future.

    Off to the next.

    Congratulations Robert, that's exciting!!!

    As for the realtor response below - it could be that her site is not mobile optimized
    and she thought you meant you can't see the site at all, anyway, that's what crossed
    my mind when I read it so it may be worth to go and double check... if she kept you
    for future reference, the future may come faster than imagined

    Rock on...

    Thanks for the great Post, I was just wondering if you think the Mobile Marketing XT Program is eazy to use and do you think this system is worth the cost?

    I have looked into the Lime Cellular system, however; someone mentioned in a previous post that it was a copy of Lime Cellular, so I contacted the company and asked about the cost of the program, unfortunately; they would not allow me to purchase just the mobile web design element - I would have had to purchase the white label package which (for me) is a very high cost...

    Any thoughts?

    Regards
    dean.

    That's awesome Robert,

    Who did you get your phone number through...that's a great price.

    I would also love to know, did you write your own emails or did you find a template...I always find emails difficult to write.

    I am getting ready to pull the trigger on some mobile marketing myself and love your success story.

    Regards
    Adrian
