so, in combination with the cold calling i was doing earlyer today. (not much success on that one today). Earlier in the week i had sent out some emails, i realy dident expect anything to happen with the emails but i figured, why not, since it only took like 20 minutes of my time. (email blast)
long story short, the freakin president of a nationally known car type company left a message on my phone today while i was sleeping. i sleep during the day, fyi. and by nationally known i mean, if you live in the u.s. there is pretty much a 100% chance you have heard of these guys. at first i thought it would be some kinda weird franchize thing or something, then i looked up his name. this is the main dude, the man with the plan. (everyone knows his company. im sure they HAVE to be pullin close to a billion)
unfortunately in the email i promised to never ask for any money, or else im pretty sure id be set for a couple of years from him alone. (im freakin shaking of excitement right now)
i always hear of success stories, and it kinda used to seem like people just got lucky a lot. i guess i got mad lucky or something.
basically this is going to be my very first interview ever that i will be doing for a client, and he is freakin huge. i always expected to fumble and stuff on my first couple of clients. this literally could be the biggest client of my life. and unfortunately, he is my first. f***...
also, to top it off, it seems like they have their act together preeety tightly.
the only thing i can really think of, that he dosent do, and that i know how to do is.
1. send out physical newsletters. and to be honest, im thinkin he probably wont do this one, as this advice is comming from some free marketing guy who hasent even sat down with 1 client yet.
2. email campagns. this is probably something he would do, as i don't see any email capture on their website or their contact page or pretty much anywhere else.
and number 2 is pretty much the ONLY thing i know of that they are not doing, and that is really worth doing. i mean these guys have got everything from properly educating their customers (without mail), to doing seminars, to even being a semi household name in america.
like i said before, im really not lying, i just need some help. im going to give him a call back tomorrow morning, and schedule a meeting for Tuesday.
please please please, experts. lend me your thoughts.
this is pretty ****ing insane.
tl;dr: ef you, read the wall of text.
maybe he just wants to kill me.
