A newbie on the forum, but Albert Einstein to an Offline business

7 replies
Hi Guys,

I realise that I am a complete newbie on this forum compared to all of you, BUT to someone who has no idea how to market their business online I am Albert Einstein

I was chatting to an aquaintance the other day and she asked what I do. My response was "My day job, or the empire I am building at night?".

I explained how I had learnt about Internet Marketing, using Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn etc for marketing, as well as setting up a blog, optimising it for search engines etc etc etc etc.

She looks at me as if I am a gift from heaven. "How much would you charge me to get me setup with a basic blog, FB, Twitter account etc, and then teach me how to maintain it?"

"Uhm .... can I get back to you on that?" was my response. So I typed up a quote (major thumb suck), sent it to them and yesterday I got a call saying "Please could I come and see them about getting it started."

I am so excited I could just PLATZ and to put it into persective, the amount I quoted was one 6th of my monthly salary. I will get it done in a weekend

Just had to share.

    Awesome! Congrats on your success. Be sure that you ask your client for referrals once they start seeing results.

    By the way, I was in Jo'berg for the World Cup last year and absolutely loved it. I can't wait to go back!

    I said it unexpected because I think you were not trying sell anything or but was just sharing

    It's amazing how just educating someone and offering friendly knowledge and value up front, instead of just expecting money in the first place, can lead you to your first successful deal.

    Congrats!
