CLOSED A HUGE SALE!!!!! +What I've Learned

So about 6months ago I attended a $3k seminar about Branding your self and little bit of self help stuff, I knew the Speaker as he was my Uncle's success coaches and he knew i was into IM, anyway After about 3hours into the seminar, I realized NO ONE knew anything about internet marketing! Not even the GURU haha!!

So I started giving some helpfull tips in between and some basic resources, I took a huge risk doing this as i didn't want to come off cocky or better knowing, but people were intrigued and took notes and asked if they can have a private talk after!

So about 2 days into the seminar i shared another tip and the speaker seemed to of had a Light Bulb moment, he went on to give me the mic to expand on the subject. 45 mins later I gave the mic back to him lol, people gave me some weird looks and i thought dammnn shouldn't of done that, thinking that my age could of been the factor!

That same evening, about 30 people gave me their business cards and offering to buy me drinks and picking my brain left right and center!!

It was seriously overwhelming, that day I realized that age is not a factor (personal thing that held me back) and what we don't realize that us Warriors know 80% more than business owners, authors, product owners when it comes to marketing!

They need our KNOWLEDGE, seriously!!!!

Anyway I closed about 3clients after the seminar, didn't really follow up with the rest as I was busy with some other projects. But probably 3days ago, I get a call from a lady I met at the seminar asking why I never called back? She then went on to ask if I could help her with her new business launch (her husband owns a really successful biz), she also added that they've been implementing some of the strategies iv shared with her husband's Biz and it's working!

She literally wanted to start ASAP and wanted my bank details straight away, don't even think shes seen my website lol!

But most important thing i've learned is that I gave them VALUE, didn't take advantage of them or the others in anyway! So i think without me realizing, i created some sort of illusion that I must of been busy on other more important projects or something, making them think I choose my clients?!

Also to go out and NETWORK!!!! If your not NETWORKING your *NOT* WORKING.

Anyway It's really important to know your identity and to improve it daily, Eventually It will give you the CONFIDENCE needed to succeed in whatever you do!

LETS GO OUT & NETWORK fellow WARRIORS

    Closing the the first 3 was easy, they told me about their business and i gave them suggestions, i then followed up with how they going and if they needed help. Think because i demonstrated knowledge in the field they knew I knew what i was talking about, thats where Identity and Confidence come into play.

    With the lady, i just told her i was busy with other projects, i didn't say sorry or anything.. Just told her in a nice way and then she asked if my services were available

    It's a huge project, biggest i have closed to date

    Looks like you were at the right place at the right time, a business seminar where nobody knows how to market their business online

    That's like getting stranded on an island and you are welcomed with nothing but women :p

    I've had a similar experience. Even at my young age, I seem to know a lot more than a lot my colleagues at work when it comes to online marketing.

    It can really get you places these days, but without networking/knowing people, it won't.

    Right on.

    Rather broad statement to make, don't you think?
