My first attempt on Mobile site selling and first call I got a sale

9 replies
I was only testing the waters and decided to ring a restraunt, I looked them up and saw they were not mobile compliant. So I pitched for fun and just told the guy I liked this menu but hated his site when I check it through my mobile.

He was kind of suprsied so i told him I can fix it for him. I just sent him a link of his competior who had his mobile site and told him they were better. He asked me if I could do that for him and how much.... needless to say I had no price in mind as I never expected to get a sale and just did it for the fun and I quoted $250.

He said fine.

The problem is I have no idea about mobile sites. I cant even put up a damn WP site

In truth I can sell I know I am good at it but techincal stuff is not for me. So I gave the job to a buddy of mine.

Is it possible to outsource this job?

Does anyone have an idea what sort of prices one could charge?

I think I am ready to attack this niche

    I could help you if you want.Have a look at my service here http://www.warriorforum.com/warriors...-counting.html and send me a message if you want to see a bigger portfolio.

    You can sell them for how much you want but you can get a lot more than the usual price people are selling($400-$500) if you can explain to the owner how much value it brings to their business.

    For example:
    Using Google keyword you find that there are 500 people searching for restaurant in X city straight from their mobile devices.
    Average sale could be $50/new client
    If only 10% of the 300 people looking for the restaurant in X city from their mobile phones lands their business website that's 30 people who could potential order some food from them.
    So 30 people * $50/each could mean $1500 potential revenue within one month, each and every month from the moment they have their mobile website LIVE.
    $1500 * 12 months = $18.000/year
    How about in 5 years?

    Would they pay $1000 one time fee for the mobile website?
    Or would they pay $500 on time + 29.97/month for maintenance, menus and specials updates(twice per month included) + a free .mobi domain?

    This strategy works best if you let them do the calculations

    Hope it helps

      Hi Adrian,

      I looked at your portfolio, and it is great quality, with exceptional pricing.

      I have sent someone your way recently, so she may be in touch. When my volume kicks in, I'll also be in touch.

    Thank you Scott, I'm trying to do my best to satisfy everyone and over-deliver when possible
    Each satisfied end-client could mean more business through referrals so it's very important to deliver exceptional work to get more business.
    I haven't been contacted yet by anyone in the last couple of hours but thanks for recommending me. I'm sure we'll catch up soon

    I'm looking forward working together.I have a team in place, trained by me to deliver the same quality so quantity order are not a problem

    Have a lovely day.

    PS: If by any chance you record any of your winning calls I would really appreciate if you could send me a copy for my own training purposes.Cheers

    Nice work Bear Trader!

    It's a great feeling, isn't it?

    Now don't let up!

    As for fulfillment, one suggestion to use is DudaMobile as their platform is SUPER easy to use even if you know NOTHING about building mobile sites. It's affordable too and they continually upgrade the platform.

    I've been with them since the beginning, good stuff.

    Congrats again on the sale, now go get 10 more. =)

      Bro, majority of your posts are worthless ramblings designed to promote your sig. You have been doing this for a LONG time, even back when I was the moderator of this mobile marketing forum. I remember having to remove a lot of your posts. All one need do is look at the number of thanks you have compared to the number of posts you have.

      Why don't you actually contribute some useful info occasionally and people might just be interested enough to click the link in your signature?

    Nice job and congrat.


    -----

    Today I went to see an Italian Pizza business owner after I met him first then took an appointment.

    Wow this italian guy was not really nice, when I came he said:what are you selling, ads? you want me to pay for ads? I'm not interested! Then I said no, it's a mobile website and a QR code solution that will bring you more customers. Then he reply: I don't have time (lol he gives me an appointment then say don't have much time) and continue with "explain me in 2 minutes what you are selling" he was like in rush and nervous (no smile). (don't see why in rush because it was 1 hour before he opens his restaurant) so all the stats and docs I have in hand were not needed. Then I scaned the QRcode of his mobile site mockup with menu.... explain he could print QR codes on table tents, pizza boxes... then he reply "humm interesting, I will check with my partner and call you if we were interested, thanks and bye".

    Our appointment was like less than 5 minutes long and I did drive like more than 1 hour from my business to his place.

    He pisssss me off!

    Now I have to hope he call me for a mobile site with all the situations I've been through.

    Great job! Getting the sale is the first step! $250 is on the low end IMO...Typically you can be charging anywhere between $500 - $2000+ for mobile sites then you can tack on additional monthly depending on the level of service you provide to the business...Regardless great work and keep it up!
