I am walking away with just under $1k after expenses! But....its not about profiting on the first card because after they see how powerful the return is....now I can position myself to charge the full money and walk away clearing over $5k profit. It was a sacrifice move on my end.....but it will pay off

Oh Greg.....

That still beats a job at Starbucks, doesn't it?!?!?

Ya did good.

Do you have any commitments already for a second postcard in about a month or so?

Great job greggorio for taking some action, really nice looking card. Love the fact that you are looking to quit the job that doesnt satisfy you. Keeping an eye on you

Im all about helping small business owners but seriously if $200 is too much to invest then they cant even be in business or dont want to be in business. I mean how much can they pay if $200 is too much:confused:.

The key to selling these is to 1. Be excited about this giant billboard that is going to be put into 10,000 mailboxes. 2. Ask them how much a customer is worth.

I recently spoke with a jeweler whose store is not in an upscale center (not the slums either). He was such a downer! Talked about people coming in by the dozens with no money so buying ads wouldn't be worth it. I told him that it was obvious he was targeting the wrong neighborhoods for his marketing efforts and that I could show him how to get a better class of clientele coming into his store. All of a sudden, he was very interested in setting the appointment.

The biggest key to selling these is just having a lot of appointments. I sold an ad today where they barely speak English, had to have a customer interpret part of the conversation. They loved it and were ready to write the check (in full) even before the interpretation. See a lot of people with this and you will make sales.

Yes!!!!

I got my samples from bob, yesterday, spent most of last night meditating through all info, woke up this morning, got on the road AND:

Sold 3 spots already!

One is a Barbershop, 1 ad, AND............he also buys gold, 1 ad, i sold him 2 spaces as a one time deal $600 for both!

ad 3.......................Pizzeria! hahahaha, $495!

Now heres what i did,'

I got the pitch down packed, i will not really mention much here, for if you have read all there was to read buying the WSO, then its ALL YOU NEED MATIES!

I also have perfected a give me a deposit now, 50% and the 50% i;ll pick up when i have the proof of your ad, works like a charm!

One thing i will tell you, HYPE the quality of the card, its something that creates a WOW effect to the business owner your trying to close, keep emphasizing the quality and value of 10K homes mailboxes receiving this wonderful EYECATCHING 9x12 flyer, because after all, that is our product we do sell in the end!

BOB! thanks my bro, i also have 11 people to re-visit tomorrow, by this friday i will have my first one completed, also i am doing 2 areas at the same time, so this week i am focusing on the one area, next week the other!

Follow all bob has to offer in his WSO and get out there, keep at it DO NOT GIVE UP!

Business owners NEED US! I also, wanna give this advice:

Key pointer, when you walk in to an establishment, the introduction, i found out today, makes or breaks your end result, Say hi, shake their hand firm, real firm, DO NOT BREAK EYE CONTACT!

So bottom line, i made in my pocket today $550, $550 to collect, and thats only 3 ads, (really 2 clients)
go get them mates! they are waiting!

thanks bob!

PS: Forgot to add something!

Make business cards, how many people asked me today for one, and i didnt have i felt half armed, to be honest, i will be making some tonight from my printer at home temporarily, but make sure all who embark on this journey, carry business cards, its essential!

PPS: My wife just brought me a surprise lol, i received the card reader for my android to accept credit cards today from Square Inc. things are progressing along...............!!!!!!

Now, when closing a deal, for the deposit i accept

1. cash
2. check
3. credit card!

My advertisers are fired up...I am already getting a couple calls and warm leads for more advertisers....and its all unfolding nicely now. Here's a snapshot of my card that's going out next week:





Good luck everyone and keep kicking butt out there! We will all be making big bucks before the holidays, if not MUCH sooner
gregg, congrats, its real, and you have inspired me as has bob, i am on track to finish mine also by this friday, all we need to do is BE OUT THERE< location by location collect business cards, gather our ammo, and keep at it, i cant wait to hear updated results and feedback from the advertisers, i know they will be happy beyond doubt!

PS: sent you an email also

Just finished reading this thread. All I can say is:

WOW

I cannot wait to try this out. I am a business student so a lot of the stuff I am learning in my classes can be implemented into this. My goal is to have everything designed and ready to go before finals, and as soon as my last final is over to start selling.

If I do not have $10,000 in my pocket by the end of the summer from this, shame on me!

This is a magnificent post! The offline method that you are stating does in fact work. I am a firm believer in using offline and online methods to increase my business potential. Another offline method you can use is by utilizing message boards. (the kinds you see when you are on the highway)

Comments appreciated

Will be posting here less as I have joined the forum. There was a small re-opening of the wso (not sure if still open) and joined purely for the forum. Quite a number are starting to progress well there. About 200 members and around 40 regular contributors.
Be careful about mentioning Groupon and associating your service with Groupon. This may kill the sale with some business owners because of a lot of negative publicity regarding Groupon.

UK warriors

Have any of you had any success with this business? What size card have you gone with? The 9x12 too big for UK letter boxes?

Who are you using for print and delivery and what prices have you been quoted?

Cheers

Hi Bob, this is a huge method for advertising local companies on local communities, and I think this can work everywhere in the world.
Really awesome!

Thanks for sharing your details for free with us on Warrior Forum!

Business incorporation
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

Hey everyone!! Great thread! I'm almost ready to start selling. I have one question though. Did anyone incorporate their business? Is it necessary to do so before selling? If not what do you do when someone wants to pay you in a check? I figure no one will want to write a check made out to me personally?

Any help would be great! Thank you!

Rakinitin: Open a bank account as DBA (Doing Business As) with your business name and just be a self-employed person without incorporating a business right now.
Have a biz card and people will write you a check to your DBA for 50% down. Have a fill in blanks (printed out page form with your DBA name) as receipt for the deposit. Then take by a "paid in full" printed receipt when they pay the balance.

Not read through the thread (which looks great) but adding something here ,forgive me if its already been raised.

Additional idea to add value and longevity to this. Put shortcode numbers on each add, ie text pizzadeals to 86444 , text spadeals to 86444 etc etc , this builds an SMS list for each business via you and allows you to track the responses each ad recieves so allowing you to upsell the next publication knowing theyve had XXX success from the last one .

Also see if some businesses will provide prizes else make it cash prizes, the home based recipients of the ad sheet have to text in to your own shortcode to be entered into the contests which are drawn maybe every month (or whatever is neccesary to ensure they all keep the ad sheet for a number of months and someplace handy because the rule is that when their number is drawn and they are phoned, they have say 30 seconds to get the ad sheet and answer a relevant question about it ie what is the 10th word on the 2nd line of the Pizza ad , tell us and they win, dont tell us and we ring someone else for the prize .

Just these two simple ideas enable each advertiser to build their own SMS list which you can run and develop for them (££££) , you also build your own SMS list of consumers which Im sure you can find multiple good uses for (££££) and the ad sheets are more likely to be held onto and be somewhere quick to get at so they people have a chance of winning the prizes rather than being stored away or binned after a few days and of course you can charge a premium rate for the shortcode /SMS option .

Hey Dave.
I have designed some "A4 " giant mailers for UK ...
Which are not that much smaller but do fit UK letter boxes. (8 1/4" X 9 3/4")

I am also a graphic designer and designed all the ads myself
take a look at an example: ( May be changing this layout to exactly match "Bobs" original)

I may have missed this in the 18 pages, but did he mention where to get the mock up done? I would like to avoid having my local printing place do it as I know several of the people who work there and they would steal the concept and run with it. I know where I can get the mass printing done but not the original mock up. Can anyone fill me in? Do you just tell the concept and sell them on that? I would imagine having a real mock up would go along towards closing the sale.

There is the possibility the printers would think this is agreat idea........... because IT IS !!
But as someone has already said, there is so much work to do initially with this business your local printers will have enough on their hands already just doing their own work!

But Just to be safe, if yo like, for your short run prints ...mock ups and proofs etc
you could just look for printers a few towns away??

Additional idea to add value and longevity to this. Put shortcode numbers on each add, ie text pizzadeals to 86444 , text spadeals to 86444 etc etc , this builds an SMS list for each business via you and allows you to track the responses each ad recieves so allowing you to upsell the next publication knowing theyve had XXX success from the last one .

Also see if some businesses will provide prizes else make it cash prizes, the home based recipients of the ad sheet have to text in to your own shortcode to be entered into the contests which are drawn maybe every month (or whatever is neccesary to ensure they all keep the ad sheet for a number of months and someplace handy because the rule is that when their number is drawn and they are phoned, they have say 30 seconds to get the ad sheet and answer a relevant question about it ie what is the 10th word on the 2nd line of the Pizza ad , tell us and they win, dont tell us and we ring someone else for the prize .

Just these two simple ideas enable each advertiser to build their own SMS list which you can run and develop for them (££££) , you also build your own SMS list of consumers which Im sure you can find multiple good uses for (££££) and the ad sheets are more likely to be held onto and be somewhere quick to get at so they people have a chance of winning the prizes rather than being stored away or binned after a few days and of course you can charge a premium rate for the shortcode /SMS option .
Thanks for this post... I've been thinking along the same lines but could use a little help shaving off a little learning curve when it comes to SMS service sources.

Do you have an SMS service that you can recommend for this?

Any recommendations on how to price this service to a merchant?

Some of you guys have come up with AMAZING ways to upsell this program. Its serious mind-boggling and inspiring!

My boxes of 10,000 postcards should be delivered on Wednesday and Im fired up! Ready to bundle them up and drop at the good old USPS by Friday. My advertisers are fired up...I am already getting a couple calls and warm leads for more advertisers....and its all unfolding nicely now.


Good luck everyone and keep kicking butt out there! We will all be making big bucks before the holidays, if not MUCH sooner
Hey Greggorio.
Nice work !!
I love your site ... really clean and crisp and to the point.
cool vid too!! what program /plug in you use for vid ..... I want one!

Tell me something, did you use your design company 'persona' while out prospecting? or did you set up "Value Titan" as a company and collect cheques under that name?

Cheers buddy.
Keep it up !
Steve

Hi Coalminer.

Take care and best of luck.

Its a 3 step strategy and its scalable to any degree you want. But the more you scale it the more you will have to invest in the post office. I have lots of people mad at me because I've promised this information like a week ago and wound up getting blasted with so many pms right around the holidays that I just haven't had the time to finish the 3rd step.

Plus I get involved browsing the forum and doing things I'm trying to do for myself. But I do get at least a couple hours work in on this everyday its just coming about pretty slowly because of that.

A quick write up of how it will read would be like this -

Step 1 - How I get my leads, the source (I have actually posted 3 sources in here already but lots of people are missing the concept of how easily you can scale up that process to get thousands of warm leads)

Step 2 - All about scaling it up. Its more a money/numbers game here. You are paying $60 I believe in most states for this part but you are getting 6 months of free warm leads in whatever area of the state you employ this method. I do a lot of math here that shows people WHY this is so incredibly powerful and WHY if you plan on getting into this business you ABSOLUTELY NEED to be doing this. I started doing this in other towns before I even implemented this biz it was the FIRST thing I realized I had to do w/out Bob mentioning a word about it. And byfar the biggest reason I will be able to keep this business successful down the road. You HAVE TO INVEST in your warm leads. They WILL PAY you back enormously.

Step 3 - How it all comes together in a simple email. Very short, professional and to the point. This email does 2 very specific things and there IS some brief research people will absolutely need to do on their parts. I collect information from the business before I decide to market to them. Depending on the information I get I will either respond with my research or I won't. But if I DO respond, I KNOW I'm getting through that front door and very likely selling a spot.

What the method really does is just eliminate every bit of resistance anyone can possibly face in trying to sell spots to business's. Can't find leads? This will show you how to get thousands all around your entire state (from people who have already paid for the exact service you're offering). It will show you how to USE those leads. And most of all how to convert them.

--------------------------------

Now a brief announcement to people waiting -

I've changed up rules. These are the criteria you must meet for getting this info & just please continue to be patient with me.

1) You MUST be a premium member of this WSO.
2) You MUST not live in NJ or at least in my region of NJ (central). =]
3) I will very likely ask for some form of proof of where you're residing.
4) I still have not decided as to a pricetag or whether or not I will even charge. But due to the growing attention I've recieved in my pm box please understand a low cost may be mandatory here.

To Vikuna the first person who messaged me and everyone else, I will be done in a matter of days with the 3rd step. I will keep my promise to the first 3 Just please understand how busy I am right now I have not dissappeared yet and don't plan on it. I just have so many things I'm trying to accomplish at once and if you please just bear with me people I will get the information to the ones who really need/want it.

I'm working on this a couple hours every night when I get home it should really just be another 2-3 days before its ready. I could have rushed this whole thing too but then I feared people would not see the larger picture, which is why I'm really trying to get detailed about everything I do.

-Red
I can't PM yet, is this system still available?

They STILL want their $250! and for every month you don't pay...you get penalized...so make sure you ask about the cost so you'll know up front!)

You also have to register your business with the State Dept Of Revenue Office (but you are not charged if you shut down your business and or don't make any income)

P.S--Make sure you register with both because they work together in tandem and if you register with one and not the other....it won't be pretty! Just so you know...

You may have to get a Federal E.I.N number from the I.R.S :rolleyes: The government gotta get theirs, you know!

You also have to register with your city or town because they want to know who's doing business, what kind of business and how you plan to run it (usually if it's not a commercial business with foot traffic, they don't hassle you too much) so they'll know what taxes, licenses, inspections and fee's to assess you and your business with!

Okay...and now off to the bank for that business account!

Check your local laws on this. All it takes in my state to get a DBA bank account is walking into to your local bank. You don't have to register anything with the Secretary of State's office first, you don't have to have your business license first. For a sole proprietership, you can do it in about 20 minutes. My bank encouraged me to get an EIN and a business license, which is smart business. I've set up a half dozen DBA accounts over the years like this.

If you are creating an S Corp or LLC you will have to check your local laws. Do that anyway. You should be able to call a small business development office in your area who can walk you through it.

I read this thread when it first started and quietly went away, planned over December and went out today to sell. Here's what happened...

First I checked out the costings. Royal mail were far too expensive. I went to a company one of my networking contacts referred me to. Royal mail wanted £2k to run ten thousand A4 fliers in postcodes of my choosing. The company I met with charge £500 for the same amount. They also do the printing. It would cost under £1000 to do the whole thing.

I picked one of the most famous streets in Scotland. Hugely popular with middle class students and the wealthy (think vodka bars and boutiques - don't forget the Starbucks). The street name is searched on Google over 20 thousand times a month on 'Low' competition rating. The street is quite a few miles long and would take some time to walk the full length.
I set up the webpage for the flier, explaining what customers get.

I had a unique spin to the idea. Customers got:

- Flier sent out to 10,000 local homes with their promotion and cut out coupon.
- Custom QR code on the coupon that linked to....
- Mobile landing page with the promotion that also offered an opt in for database building. Meaning the old school can cut out the coupon and the tech savvy can scan the code and show their phone to the staff for the promotion.
- Database listing on the website that I will rank number one for the street name.

I avoided the big guns like Starbucks/Subway etc as they obviously run their own promotions and probably don't have the authority to run separate local fliers/websites.

Armed with a sample landing page on my phone I hit the streets. I walked for 3 hours, going into every store. I explained that I was a local business owner and have begun a project called "we love <street name>" which is a vehicle designed to get the businesses of <street name> more exposure and more customers.

I spoke to one business owner the whole time, which was the second biggest business on the street. He said that the price (£500) was every reasonable and he would be very interested. I was to send over the details to get things moving.
The rest of the time was spent speaking to managers because the owners weren't in. Every manager I spoke to that told me they were interested (about 18) gave me the owners personal emails.

So for 3 hours and several businesses later I got one sign up. The other emails....I'm going to record a personal video for each individual email explaining who I am, who I spoke to in their shop that day and go over the offer. I'll also add pictures and text to the email just in case they read it on their phone and can't watch the video.

I'll let you know how that goes....
Well i recorded 17 different videos intros and added them to the start of a promotional video I made, explaining the project. Uploaded all 17 videos to youtube and emailed each individual address with the corresponding video.

That was 6 days ago.
1 reply.... ONE. ...and that was a 'possibly interested'.

Quite a bit of work in coming up with the project, putting the site together, walking the street for those 3 hours, filming all the individual videos, editing them all together, uploading them, sending them out in individual emails.

Fail.
I obviously wasn't good enough at selling it.

Shame, but glad I done it - at least I tried

Wow, it just goes to show you... No matter how swept up we are in the whole Social Media, internet-based sales world, offline sales are still effective and lucrative. Who knew?!!! Congrats Bob, and thanks for sharing and walking us through the entire business model.

You could just as easily have packaged this information up into a WSO and sold it to us for some vast sum...

@ scottish

You need to call everyone that you sent an email to and create a sense of urgency and value. Sense that you are getting too caught up in the technology and trying to WOW them with all the qr code,mobile landing page, directory stuff which is cool but UNNECESSARY right now.

Just get in and you can do all that other stuff later. Drop the price if you have to the first time, make sure they know its a one time deal, once they see results getting the full amount wont be a problem next time AND then you may want to add a "fancy" tech benefit to make them feel better about the higher rate.

Get the money, its there and they WANT to give it to you! Do you want to receive it?

That's a cool idea. I used to sell ads to local business too, but I'd put the ads on a "homework folder". I would then print the folders (with the ads on them) and give them to the local elementary schools for free.

Well I have been reading through this thread over the last couple of days as I take action to get my own business started. So far I have gotten my EIN and spoke with my bank. I will get the rest of that as well as my business cards and shirts tommorrow. I have spoken with 3 local business were I know the owners and all of them said yes right off. One in particular has spoken with a few of her friends. (That one was ready to spend $500 to send out 1000 regular post cards). I showed her a copy of the mock-up that I printed out and she was amazed.

This will work but you must take action. Thank you Bob.

I've been following this thread, and I'm very excited to start taking action on this as I just lost my full time job last week.

Gregg, I see that you used Indesign for this layout. I have the software but I'm not very familiar with it. Do you have any info you are willing to share about setting up your layout? Any help will be appreciated - Thanks!
