Offline Success!! $50k+ contract

37 replies
Almost everything I have done in the past has been online. I have several CB products that do OK, one even doing about $2k per month.

Then I had an opportunity to meet with a GM of a small company that does several million in sales every year.

Before the meeting, I went thru several offline WSO's here - bought them and poured thru them and LEARNED what to say and what to show them.

I emailed a couple of videos before the meeting and then went to the meeting armed to the teeth with Goodies.

They signed a 2 year+ contract for $5k down and $1,500/month. I put the "+" in there because I also have 8 YEARS of trailing residuals based on increases in profits.

This was all one month ago...

One month later they are on page one for multiple keywords and traffic is up 30% to their site. I am also writing a hardcopy book for them (all outsourced of course) and it will be coming out in about a month.

They have a Twitter page, a Youtube page, a blog, and this next month I will be doing article and social bookmarking for deep linking to the interior pages of their site.

The WSO's I purchased for the material are by the people you see all the time doing WSO's on offline success - need I say more?

The GM is so happy that she has already referred 4 more people. I may have to spend a week whitewater rafting (all at no expense), a week touring a steel factory, and a week learning the inner workings of a commercial landscaping company.

Besides redoing the onsite SEO, everything is outsourced to people here on the forum or on fiverr.

After I get a couple more contracts, I'll be thinking about scaling up and hiring a couple of sales people.

Needless to say - I'm excited. Ain't IM grand?

      I was talking to another mate of mine who makes a ton of money marketing in Australia. I told him that even though the secret is old, I printed out this image below:-

      The Secret Check - Print It Now

      wrote out how much I wanted in 2010, signed it then dated it, put it and walked around with in my pocket. OMG i cant belive how good it works. Every time i was in a shop or found myself bored I pulled it out and envisioned this money coming to me.

      (not going to say how much) but Am happy to say that I have surpassed the amount I wrote out, and there is still 2 and a half months left of 2010. I am so thrilled and excited.

      The power of the mind is truely a very powerful tool. That is for sure, it is flabbergasting.

        wow, I absolutely love that idea plus it will remind me to "talk" to people or work my business even when I'm out with family or what ever. Thanks for the great tip here.

        Oh sorry..... major congrats to you winebuddy!! This is very inspirational.

        Gotta go write myself a check hehe and I'm gonna make it big too haha,

          Congratulations! This just goes to show that it's not enough to buy WSO's you have to actually put them into action!

          Your offline business is sure to do well because you are an action taker.

    Offline demand for IM services is at an all time high now. There are tons of business all around you that would love to have great search engine rankings and are willing to pay to get it. I run a local city blog and just a month after opening I was approached by local businesses wanting advertising space. What winebuddy is doing is a nearly untapped market just begging to be tapped.

    I have not wanted a job where I drive around town and have marketing meetings with various business - I like staying at home for work, so this isn't exactly my cup of tea. For those of you that would love to work like this, I encourage you to explore more ideas like winebuddy has because there is a lot of money to be made and not a lot of competition.

    That's GREAT!!!

    This really gets you thinking that we should be targeting businesses that do $2 million per year and more and not so much targeting with local mom and pop shops that may do $200,000 per year.

    I love it winebuddy.

    I am looking to hop into the industry myself.

    I think it might be helpful for me and other newbies if you listed some off the WSO that you purchased to get you up and going.

    Any recommendations?

        I know that I get cranky with people, especially about "offline" (when can we just start calling it what it is? MARKETING CONSULTING).

        But that's because I keep trying to show people the bigger picture. While people are trolling away for chicken feed $200 deals, there's massive numbers sitting there waiting to be had.

    Very inspiring! I also work with a few offline companies and the trick of the trade is what to say and what to show them. Mainly, its all about the research before you go in and talk. Congrats once again.

      I offered them a complete IM blueprint found in one of the WSOs I purchased. Pretty much just went in and said - "you get all this and here's the price".

      The IM blueprint covers just about every aspect... SM, SEO, Mapped local listings, Authority Creation (hardcopy book), press releases, Ebay store... pretty much the entire spectrum.

      I explained to them that it would take 2 years to implement everything and get it rocking and rollin but they would be the Kingpin in their industry at the end of it.

    WineBuddy,

    You mentioned that you were also getting residual income, etc.

    You can also, go in and do some business development stuff that will bring a few more gold coins into your treasure chest.

    Ha! Are they paying you EXTRA for the book your doing for them?

    Cheers,

    Millard
