    Yeah, yeah we've all seen the terrible Indian emails promoting mashed together Fiverr gigs. But today a light went off in my head, and here's what I did.

    • Talk to them, yes, pretend like you're looking for White Label SEO services. Build trust here, shouldn't have any problems here.
    • Ask them about what they offer in their packages, backlinks, onsite all etc.
    • Ask to see portfolio, they'll provide some, I got a list of 10 clients. I would then contact the site owners, informing them of the problems(which they will have) on their site.
    • More relationship building here. I offered to 'detox' their backlink profile, and from the 4 people who responded, 1 of them signed. Now they are in their first month with me.
    So yeah, a bit lengthy, but next time you see someone from India emailing you - see it as an opportunity!




    Srs.

    And to think that some of these spammers are in BHW.

    The irony of it all.

    Wow! This is devious and remarkable at the same time! But this could be a problem because those Indian guys might be here in BHW and would become more cautious because of this.

    They're still human, after all. Give anybody a good sales pitch and they're bound to fall for it eventually.

    Good job OP on turning a salesman into a buyer!

    Sadly Fiverr gigs are only marginally worse than the "expert SEO services!" offered on this forum's very own marketplace if it's quality you're after. Quality SEO is a fairytale unless you do everything yourself by hand.

    The only problem with this method is that generally people in USA / CANADA / UK etc that work with those Indian email spammer are used to paying $50 for a website and $10 a month for expert SEO services lol. Or am I completes off base on that assessment??

    No, that's actually a good point you have there. However, if you can get those people who usually work with spammers to see real quality through your services, there's a chance that you could convince them to pay more.

    I actually think I'll test this out in a journey thread, which emails I'll have 2 going at the same time since I'm planning on starting a journey with Meathead's method.

    I thought it was the classic bait and switch method then I realize it way not. Then maybe it was just the classic outsmarting the enemy tactic. HAHA!
