I don't know everything. But I do listen to people that truly can inspire me.
This technique is expensive and requires you to have "balls". But it works.
I was told by a friend of mine for years to do that, but I was afraid. You take it anyway you want. All I can say, it works for me. But you need to make your own decisions.
I was told to rent a nice office and clients will come. "If you build it they will come" Field of Dreams.
For those that live in Southern California, you will know the place.
I rented a nice high-end office in Malibu California. Ocean view from all offices. Beautiful!
My life has changed. So once you in an office building, preferably high end, your neighbors need your services. My neighbors are all in the movie industry, or music industry. So that was a start.
But that's not what is really important. The important part is when we call business owners and we tell them we are in Malibu, immediately they listen and respect us (in most cases).
And for those that actually come to meet with us in our office....93% closure rate.
We don't go to their offices. "You want my service? You come here"
This is 180 degrees of where I used to be. You see, I used to go to small business owners, offer them web development, SEO Social Media and so on. And what happen there? In there office? They are not focused, they get calls all the time, employees coming in and out and I was just a guy that annoyed them. I felt miserable. I hated it.
Now? I have the upper hand. You walk into my office, these are my rules and you play by my rules....
Guess what? IT WORKS!!!!!!
They come in, we usually have one meeting and we get paid on the first meeting. Before? I used to have three meetings and begging to get paid.
I know it may sound crazy, but it works.
For those who live in the Los Angeles area, hit me up, stop by, lets try to brainstorm to bring more business.
I hope this post will inspire someone to take action.
