What's interesting to me, is you try and ask the sellers about this and they drop and roll faster than pigs on shit. Half the people here talk about SEO like they're in the trenches, which is absolutely INSANE! (something I'm now trying to get away from a bit) Not once have I heard anyone talking about proper rank tracking for clients, not mention call tracking and integrating a client dashboard with monthly reports. (this is how you keep retention high)
One thing I don't know how to do well is cold call. I see the benefits to mastering the skill, but am scared like a little bitch and I don't need it bad enough. I've gotten referrals for a couple years and never had to prospect much. Now I think that's changing.. or at least I won't reach my new goals unless it does. (it seems like I'm degrading myself to drop to the "level of cold calling" which is a clear indicator of the problem by itself)
Nonetheless, I'm infatuated with prospecting methods which put me in the driver's seat. Cold walk ins work extremely well if you're polished, but I haven't done those in over two years. I also see the greater efficiency in calling instead of driving all over the city.
But all these threads and wso's on the matter seem pretty gimmicky at times. I don't really know where I'm going with this and am rambling now, it just seems weird that everyone goes with the flow of the latest greatest "systems."
In closing, the only WSO's I've purchased that are worthwhile, are tangible assets you can use and put into motion. The next time a "full time offliner's" system, method, whatever has you thinking **this is it** come back to reality...it's a pipe dream. The only thing that's going to change anything is you getting your ass into an actionable pattern ever single day.
I think I've mentioned this before, but this place is it's own ecosystem. What works here isn't necessarily going to do anything in the field. Selling picks to miners with no gloves, masks, or water is a recipe for disaster. The only thing left to do when that doesn't work, is buy something else. And the circle continues...
I can't be the only one that notices this??
