Well its a not a kill yet, but its definitely a hit !
This morning I sent 1( one) email to 1 (one) local business offering web redesign...half an hour later I had the business owner calling me on my mobile phone asking me if I can meet him to discuss my offer.!! wow
Just about 3 months ago I ran this email campaign offering webdesign to local business and the result was poor, I had something like 0.01% respond and 0 sale.!! :-o
This might have been luck But I don't think so and here is why:
1. The business I picked was medium size ( not a papa & mama ones)
2. the email was sent to the manager director - the owner ( got his email from the website)
3. the email was short, simple natural and sounds REAL ( not too much of that selling stuffs)
4. the website needs redesign
The prospect is going for a two weeks vacation and he wants me to get in touch to book a meeting afterwards, He was also interested in doing some SEO...
so wish me luck...
