I've seen ambitious individuals post their ideas/goals on Warrior Forum, to only watch "negative harry" reply with why it may not work.
"Did you think about x?"
"Did you plan for y?"
"What will you do when the inevitable z happens?"
Then, an empathetic, typically very experienced, individual rushes to the poster's rescue with something like "Leave them alone...at least they have goals, which means they've given their idea/goals some thought!"
Negative Harry, I'm seeking your comments. (Ofcourse along with the experienced rescuer)
My goal: Simple...to make $1,000,000 per year! There are those who want to be financially free (most on the forum) and there are those who want to be 100%, completely, totally financial free AND want the same for their kids. I'm the latter.
I've chosen an authority business directory as my vehicle, basically to provide leads to my clients. Thanks John D.! (...and SOOOO MANY OTHERS) You're the best!
Revenue $100,000 per month
340 ($297/month) clients
1 client out of 200 calls
70,000 calls (1250 daily)
5 telemarketers frontline (250 calls each, daily)
1 closer (for 6 phone closes per day)
Expenses $4000 - $8400 per month
$4400/month (TMs $10/hour, $25 to $50 spiffs) (3 months only)
$2000/month (VA/Telemarketer to replace cancellations) (After 3 months)
$10/month website hosting
$2000-$4000/month SEO/Advert (company identified and spoken with)
$297/month seems a little steep when attempting to close 1 out of 200 calls. To reach this goal, I plan to start calling in a particular city ONLY after receiving 10 visitors per day to the site from that city. Then, the script will start with something like...
"Our website is currently receiving 10 visitors per day from people looking for a Chicago Pizzeria (example). We've yet to identify a Pizzeria to send these leads to. Are you currently overwhelmed with customers right now?"
Why am I feeling like this is too much money to hope for? $1,100,000 annually really seems like a LOT of money for such a low start-up (around $5k).
However, gosh, this plan seems totally feasible based on the research I've done: here at WF; elsewhere to find the lifetime value to my future clients for picking up a new customer; the return my client is currently getting; the return they'll get on $297/month; their advertising/marketing habits; etc.
I've lurked here for a loooooooong time! Sick of it! Time to move!
PLEASE point out any potential flaws in my plan/execution because I feel as though I need to bring my excitement level down a notch...
Thanks again guys!
