my own 2 Shekels.
Most people on this forum that aren't making the money they desire lack "one" thing
that can put them over the top.
I'm able to make these big ticket deals not because I'm an expert or because I'm the
number one guru on the internet......
IT'S BECAUSE OF MY CONFIDENCE (My faith in God play a huge role in this too)
But speaking purely from a confidence perspective; a lot of people just don't realize
how valuable a skill it is just to know what the top article directories are...
What SEO is....
How to setup an aweber account.....
How to get free traffic to a website....
But because I have confidence in the knowledge that I have, I approach business owners
from a different angle..
They need me, I certainly don't need them....
I'll give all the secrets to their competition if they dare not do business with me...
They better be paying me well or else I'd be wasting my time....
And the most important one is: I give them A LOT of FREE information.
They think: "Gee, this guy really know what he's talking about. I should probably
do business with him"
I made $65,000 on my last offline deal, and so far all we've done is set up a few squeeze pages. We also got a 3000 square foot office free of charge!
Here's a classic example:
The other day I was watching CNN and I saw a commercial for Alcoholism Addiction Cure by (I deleted the name so it won't get picked up by Google). This was like the 100th time I had seen their commercial so I looked up their website because I knew they were making big bucks.
Low and behold, I saw some areas that I could improve on their website.
So I filled in their customer contact form and said: (I'm paraphrasing here)
I'm an internet expert, it looks like you're doing well already, but I see some areas on your
website that can be improved with my help.
I like what you're doing so if you have any questions feel free to call me or email me.
-----End of email
One of the owners called me an hour later saying he had built the site himself. The site looked great by the way.
I told him I would do a diagnostic on the site and shoot him an email.
The gentleman that called me was acting and sounding like he knew it all so I told him this:
"Look, business owners call me all the time saying they their website is perfect, but you can
definitely see double the response from your website than you're currently getting"
I put together a video for him telling him what needed to be fixed and he said he would get back to me after watching the video...
Here's the kicker, in the video I said, "you can get these things done elsewhere for a cheaper price but if you get it done with me you'll get great results. But I charge a very
hefty fee. Anywhere between 3 to 5 thousand bucks a month"
I say I charge a lot because I'm confident and because I KNOW what I'm worth.
If this guy doesn't get back to me, the fact they he called, shows me that he need help. So I'll put together a site in his market. Call him back and tell him that I want to rent it or sell it to him or HIS COMPETITOR.
But before I do that, I'll get it ranked in GOOGLE above him :-)
Then sell or rent the site.
My newest client called me and offered to pay me 5k a month, did you think I accepted his offer? NO!
Not because I didn't think it was enough, it was, I was just confident in my ability.
So I asked for 7k a month. They said they would call me back. They called me back
in 5 minutes and agreed to the deal.....
FULL DISCLOSURE: This 7k/month client already was presold on me because he saw
some of my videos and we had a relationship already.
He also tried to pull out of the deal at the last moment saying he wasn't sure about revealing his business trade secrets.
I said "I have trade secrets too, but I'm willing to share them with you. And my trade
secret are what they're after"
He agreed and has been paying me 7k/month ever since.
If you aren't making the money you desire even though you have the knowledge, it's because your lacking in the confidence area.
Look in the mirror and tell yourself that: "I'm good enough, I smart enough, and dog gonnit people like me"
