July 15th, 2017 - I send the first email pitching a new LinkedIn outreach service
January 15th, 2018 - Lead Cookie is at $33,168 MRR with 15 full-time team members
It’s been a crazy ride, to say the least, and Lead Cookie is just getting started. But considering that we are hitting the 6 months mark, I thought it would be a good to reflect back on the past 6 months and the lessons learned.
This article is a list and summary of all of the lessons and tips I have picked up and learned over the past 6 months which I attribute Lead Cookie’s success to.
My hopes are it will help you on your journey.
11 phone calls
19 qualified leads
3 closed deals
Those were my results after 30 days of running the Linkedin tactics that I am going to share with you in this article.
There is a conversation that I seem to have over and over again with agency owners.
They tell me about their business, and how they are growing.
Every year more revenue and more employees.
Yet their personal income is still low…
They keep “reinvesting in the business” and if they could just make it over this next hump then their profits would go up and they could take home more pay.
This conversation happens time and time again…
In this article, I want to share why an agency owner with a low personal income need to make some serious changes.
There is a trend that I see time and time again in nearly all of the agencies and consultants that I work with.
They often get leads in some form or another.
But, they struggle to nurture and close those leads…
They have no habit built to nurture and close those deals.
In this article, I am going to share with you a super simple weekly nurture habit that takes 30 minutes each week. This habit will help you nurture more customers through to a close.
A few years ago, I heard an interview with Tony Robbins.
While I haven’t read Tony’s books, I thought the interview was at least worth giving a shot.
And in that interview, one piece of advice stuck with me.
And that advice has drastically changed by my business over time.
Finding new clients and better clients is the ongoing challenge of almost any agency or consulting practice.
In this post, I outline 20 different tactics that I have seen agencies and freelancers use to win new clients for their business. These tactics are all real-world examples that I have learned from hands-on experience or interviewing agency owners on my podcast.
About six months ago, an agency owner told me about this interesting Linkedin tactic that he used to win one of their best clients.
At first, I was skeptical on if the approach would actually work. So before recommending it to any of my clients or readers, I decided to give it a shot myself.
After 6 months, I can now cite closing more than $10,000 worth of consulting business from this passive tactic. And as I write this, I am in negotiations with one of my biggest clients to date which could take that closed number to $60k or more.
All of that revenue came from a simple lead generation tactic on Linkedin.
“Starting a podcast sounds great, but it just seems like a ton of work.”
That is what nearly all of my clients say to me when I propose the idea of launching their own podcast.
Yet when I bring up the idea of starting a podcast to others, they have a built in belief that creating and running a podcast is going to take at on of time and energy.
The truth is, that is not the case.
In this post I share my entire workflow on streamlining my podcast process.
