Learn how I succeed with selling custom hold messages to local businesses.

Would You Like Me to Hand You a Super Simple Business System for Next to Nothing?

I just bumped this. Potentially for the last time. I am going to be selling this outside of the warrior forum for a much higher price.


Hi!

Jeremiah Walsh here!

I have been a member of the Warrior Forum for years. I have bought many WSO's. I have even launched a PLR product and failed MISERABLY. I was stuck in a dead end job and didn't see a way out for the longest time. I was stuck as an IT sales manager with a boss who wasn't much older than I was, and he wasn't going anywhere, so neither was I. Talk about a REAL DEAD END!

I needed a way out. Something that could empower me to support my family and not have to be at the mercy of a boss that could can me at any time...


Does this sound familiar?
  • "I can't stand my current job! I need to make a full time income on my own now!"
  • "I have the tenacity to work hard, but I just don't know what I can do!"
  • "I bought a few products and it didn't work for me!"
  • "I don't know how to build websites and I don't really care much for it"
  • "I'm totally frustrated and lost!"

ATTENTION: If you answered a YES to any of these questions and you are ready to take action and start making money RIGHT AWAY, then this is the probably the most important message you will ever read!

I will be honest with you; I am no internet marketing guru. I never was, and I probably never will be. I make my money in the offline world... helping real people grow their own offline business. Real people just like you.

Now, I don't expect that all of you will believe anything that I say. If you have been hanging around the offline sub forum, then you will have seen me offering up some valuable advice from time to time.

I am not going to sit here and tell you that I have made "easy money" with a push button software and making short videos trying to sell the next "big thing".

As a matter of fact, I have paid dearly for my success. I have paid in "sweat equity"!


I have been successful I a number of different business systems and I am going to share one of them with you today, right here, right now.

Here is it's done;

You reach out to local businesses and offer them a service that is often ignored, but can have a huge impact on their business. I am talking about their hold message on their phone.

Custom hold messages have been around for a very long time. However, they are often done poorly, if at all, and are not designed to sell additional products or services. Through custom hold sales messages, you are empowering local businesses to present an additional call to action to their clients at a time when they never thought about it before.

What's even worse and actually scary is that many local businesses use their local radio station as their hold music. This invites a competitor's radio advertisement to be presented, and if they are not paying licensing fees for each song payed (multiplied by the number of phone lines available) they could be faced with business crippling fines.
If this business idea above sounds interesting and you would like to learn how to offer this as a sustainable and actionable business, then I'll happily teach you.

Pay careful attention to what I'm about to tell you.

If you need to stand up and shake your legs, get a snack, go do it. Regain your focus right now.

It's that IMPORTANT.


Most WSO's purchased are never consumed and acted upon. But you are not going to be one of "those people". You are going to do something different. You are going to purchase this WSO, you are going to learn this system. You are going to put everything that you have got into it, and you are going to succeed all the way to the bank!

You are going to learn how to run this business, an ethical business that you can be proud of.

Here is why you should buy this WSO.
  • It's a proven system in an under served market.
  • Every business of every kind in every language and in every country needs it.
  • It isn't a single time sale. They keep coming back for more because it is a monthly fee.
  • It's at an astronomical 96% gross margin (profit).
  • Once the system is running, it takes very little effort.
  • You can even sell your business and turn a huge profit.
  • This Requires No SEO
  • This requires No PPC
  • This requires No Advertising spend
  • This requires No Affiliate Marketing
  • This only requires elbow grease.
Who Should Not Purchase This Product
  • Anyone looking to get rich quick.
  • Anyone not willing to put in that "sweat equity".
  • Anyone looking for an over complicated method based on theory.
  • Anyone who is going to purchase this WSO and let it collect digital dust.
First, the instant you buy this WSO you will get:
  • A breakdown of how this business works. I will give you the complete nuts and bolts on this business.
  • You will receive free access to my elite prospecting training that I sell for $200 on Udemy. This will help you explode your business real big, real fast!
  • You'll also receive access to my tried and tested sources where I get my prospect lists from.
  • You will find out where I can get information on millions of business in North America so that you can focus on selling to business that make a lot of money, see how much they spend on advertising, see who is the exact person you will need to talk to, and exactly how to reach them, all for FREE!
  • You will receive my most effective prospecting pitches.
  • You will receive an invoice template and work agreement.
  • You will receive my ongoing support so that we can help make your business successful together.


Let's be honest with one another here for a second. You are on the warrior forum because you are looking for not just a better way. You are looking for a better way that you can wrap your head around, that isn't difficult, that has a very small cost to get started, and has the potential to become very successful!


Purchase this WSO today and let me help you with that!

Reserved for FAQ


My first question for you is now I have a lot of time on my hands so I want to do this business full time how much would someone usually charge these businesses each month for this holding type service?

I had 3 price plans and they all revolved around a monthly retainer from $299 - $499 per month. You are able to charge whatever works best for you. In my experience, this worked best for me.



Also, after purchasing your main offer for $27 do you have any oto's or upsells I need to buy before I can implement your main course and generate an income over time?
I don't have any OTO's or upsells attached to this. I may message buyers later with any updates that I may add to the WSO. The updates will be free of course. I am thinking of having a consultation fee for anyone who may be interested in a 1 on 1 coaching scenario. I just haven't decided if I wanted to dedicate some extra time to that.




How much capital is required to start this business based on your experience?
Honestly, I did this on a shoestring budget. I bought a magic jack so I can have a US number and just started dialing local businesses. You may want to have a domain and webpage setup. So the startup costs would be things like your website and some business cards and such. Nothing too crazy...



When you started out doing this business did you have a website at the beginning?
Yes, I had a simple website. It's still up.


And, by starting out on a shoe string budget how much capital did you start in this business with?
I did it part time as I had another job at the time. I believe I spent less than $50 bucks to get the website theme and business cards.


What other offline businesses have you been involved in outside of this phone holding service business?
I do lead generation, sales consulting, sales training, business coaching, and marketing.




As far as this holding service course is this mainly pdf files or videos etc?
It's one main pdf file with a few smaller ones.



I notice the title of your WSO is "The $200k Hold Message Consultant System". What is the $200K?
Well, that is what I brought in over my first 12-month period. The first few months didn't bring in as much revenue as the later months. That's because I put a cadence of activities in place that got the ball rolling.

Which businesses have you had the most success with using this system?
I find the best success with dentists, restaurants, retail.



Do you have to go to meet them in person, or can you close them over the phone?

I mostly do over the phone. That way I can reach more people.



Will you provide support, and/or have a FB group of some kind?
Yes. You can email me any time and I will help out. Having a FB group is a good idea. I'll set one up if enough people buy the wso.

Hi,

This offer sounds interesting. I know you said this is an offline business but is it possible to run the business online?

Thanks...

Yes, it is possible, I just never did it because online isn't my specialty. If you are able to do FB advertisements, lead generation, and the like... you can do it with this.

As long as you can get local business owners to see that they have a problem and you are able to solve it... you are golden.

Hey Jeremiah,
Darrell here with an additional question as well.

I'm asking this because I've never done face to face sales before honestly.

It can if they are local to you and want to meet. I haven't met most of my clients "face to face". Mostly I met them over GoToMeeting... which is close enough. I met them because I wanted to.

If they see the value there is no real selling involved. If you have to "close the deal" they simply didn't understand the value being offered.

You just have to be clear about what you are offering and what the benefits are... and what the risks are of doing nothing. That's the kicker here... if they do nothing they stand to lose business, or even eventually get a crazy fine.

You cant convince everyone though. You only need one person a day. If you follow my prospecting training that I include with this you are going to do well.

Hey! This looks interesting.

I do have a couple of questions, though:

1) Which businesses have you had the most success with using this system?

2) Do you have to go to meet them in person, or can you close them over the phone? I wouldn't have an issue meeting them in person either way, but just wondering.

3) Will you provide support, and/or have a FB group of some kind?

Thank you!

I outsourced the voice talent and production. I didn't outsource the prospecting, but that could be outsourced too. I suggest you do it at first so they you know what works best before outsourcing it.

Hey Jeremiah,
Darrell here and I have a question about this course.


1- When I get started with this business in your opinion could I succeed in this business by doing prospecting via the phone like you did with out a website or is a website mandatory to get started?


Thanks,
Darrell

I think that it would be better to have even a simple one. If you want this to be a real business you would have to appear as such.

And that goes for any business, not just this one.


Makes sense?

There are some fantastic warriors on here that can do a bang up job on a simple website. If you end up buying the wso I will send you my company website so that you can see what I did with mine as an example.

Can you imagine this would work in the UK? How do you find and qualify businesses?

I imagine that you can do it. The same principals apply.

I am not sure where you would get your business lists from as my sources cover North America.

I am sure there would be similar sources in the UK.

Hey Jeremiah,
Darrell here and I was wondering if someone would get your wso and follow it and put the effort in would they be able to duplicate the results you made in your first year of business with this business model?



Thanks,
Darrell

Nothing is ever a guarantee. However, if you put in the effort and work, you will get results.

It's the consistency that is the most important part. No matter how good the business is, if you aren't consistent with your activities you will not succeed.

Activities equal results.

Look, for less than ten bucks I am giving you a working model. It's up to you if you want to use it.

If you do decide to use it you can build something real.

Looks pretty interesting.

What are the most common objections you've experienced from prospects for this service?

What business life cycle i.e. new businesses vs established businesses are the best prospects found for this service?

Does your product include an email and phone script for the initial email outreach and phone appointment contact?

Lastly, you mentioned $27 in the "what you're getting" section but your wso is currently on a dime sale. Is there an OTO that I'm missing? The current price is 8.99

Thanks!

The price was $27. Even though I feel it is worth more, I decided to lower the price so that more people could benefit from this.

I supply some voicemail scripts that worked great for me in the past.

I didn't email for my outreach because I wanted to actually get put on hold. That way I know what I am up against.

This worked best with established customers. You are offering to get their current customers to spend more with them through targeted hold message advertising.

Hi, this seems unique. Just a few questions -

- Once you get a customer, how many hours a month do you have to spend doing work for them?

- Could you tell us what the retention rate is for your customers?

- Also on average, how long do the customers stay with you?

Thanks!

Honestly it takes less than an hour once you have spent the early time to learn their business.

I would retain about 80% of them. The ones that would leave... They left because they saw the increase in business and saw it as the solution. Most customers would see the benefit in maintenance and changing up the messages for different seasons, sales, and new product announcements.

The ones who did stay, stayed for at least 6 months or so. There were quite a few that stayed on permanently.

So, you made 200K a year and quit doing it? Instead sell a how to for 8 bucks?

Makes no sense, Jeremiah.

I make a lot more money with bigger deals helping business with sales process implementation.

Instead of doing several things pretty well I chose to be excellent at one specific thing.

i could have give it away for free here... But then those who got it would not act on it. That's the thing about freebies. People collect them and don't do anything with them.

And you specifically registerd today just to say this? Please offer up some value to the community too.

Does this WSO also teach the fulfillment side of things? It sounds like a unique and interesting niche, but I have no experience making hold advertisements and wouldn't even know where to begin. I'd need sources for copywriting, voice talent, music, etc., and be able to stay in the black while outsourcing all of this.

I wrote the hold messages myself and they are not too difficult. I do go over what and how it should be done. I don't do the voice recording myself because I hate the sound of my voice on a recording. I outsource It.

Well that's a cogent reply. Except for the "register today" leap. And my question did add value to the community

Taking the 8 buck plunge now

Hi Jeremiah.

Would this be just as effective using solely cold calling Email to prospective client? Especially if I as a non US based person wanting to target US business? Do you have a marketing plan for that method? Thanks!

While I have never done cold emails I do think that it could work. They would have to be engaging and offer up some value.

While I don't have a specific market plan for that, I do go over it in my prospecting training that comes with this WSO

Thanks for the reply. I will give it a go cos I have sold worst products with cold emails and your product seems top notch and deserve at least a try.

Is top notch. I've read the main product and going through the bonus now. The bonus is Jeremiah's $75 prospecting course on Udemy. It's no hype. The thing is worth a solid $75.

The main course is quality and it's obvious he's actually done this...

Jeremiah, this business sounds perfect. I'm from Latin America, but it is easy to get US phone numbers, there are options like skype, magic jack, etc.

I would like to know if you need to have your own business entity to get started?

Or could you get started just with a website and later travel to the US to get your business entity.

You say that you are from Canada so I guess you didn't have a US business entity at the beginning.

Thanks

I have never had a US entity. Always calling from the north.

I do have a business, but it's a Canadian business.

Hey Jeremiah,
Darrell here and I have a couple questions for you.

1- How much does it cost to usually outsource the voice over for these on hold type messages when you outsource this part of the business?


2- And, besides setting up the website is outsourcing the voice over talent to fulfill the service is that all I need to have to start this business?


Thanks,
Darrell

I use some specific people on fiverr as the voice talent. There are probably others which are good... But I am really partial to these two people. They are awesome.

That's all you need. Perhaps some fancy business cards if you want.

In fact, It's been since 2012 and I still haven't got my business cards yet... I will one day.

Little confused why would someone buy this service from us for $200.00 a month when you can do a simple google search and you will see a advertisement for a company offering this service for $39.00 a month??

You will also find super cheap SEO service and dirt cheap article writing.

You get what you pay for. We are offering a sales centric hold message. Not just any message. We are going to jumpstart their sales, not just tell someone that "we will be with thin in a moment".

If someone wants to pay for cheap they will never buy from you, and you should never sell to them. You don't want those customers.

You want the people that want a professional... And you will market yourself as such when you reach out to prospects.

Think of it like this, someone who only ever wants a $600 car will never buy a new Audi. You are going to go after the people that want that Audi.

Makes sense?
