I'll be honest, I'm sure as hell not going to beat around the bush I know you guys don't want that crap and I sure as hell wouldn't. So here it is. I've been acting on advice here on BHW and I'm not letting failure stop me. I don't know what the next step to succeed is but with the amount of failures I got under my belt success is gonna land. Here's a quick run down of what I've done thus far. So far I have: 1. Done research, lots of it and made sure I stayed focused on services that benefit local businesses nothing else! 2. Created websites with keywords that rank first page for local businesses with a good volume of searches. 3. Called these local businesses to rent these sites(no dice) 4. Setup a corporation for marketing 5. Began cold calling 100-200 restaurants per day to setup SMS marketing VIP clubs within their restaurant. 6. Got the script down packed to the point of getting past the gate keeper 90% of the time when the owner was available(less than 10% of the time) and setup a number of interviews for the following few weeks. 7. Changed up my offer to include a free month, kept the price at a reasonable $250 per month and a demonstration of how it worked via my smartphone during the interview(no dice despite a good level of enthusiasm). I even walked door to door to restaurants immediately talking to the owners/managers when they were there. I never got a bad response by phone or in person, but I didn't get a check either. 8. Decided to switch up and sell SEO through cold calling. Instead of going with the direct sales method I decided referrals will be the way to go I realized I'm obviously dealing with trust issues. So I started pitching FREE (yep free) web design to accountants who want it and I rather then appear disingenuous informed them of how new my company is and that my sincere intent is to provide a solid service for the purpose of getting good referrals. I also alluded to the fact that should they refer me they would enjoy a big fat 10% for each client they sent my way that wrote me a check upfront! So where am I now? Like I said above I'm going to continue refining my strategies, shifting my methods/services if that's what I discover the client wants and letting any luck, let any helping hand to grab on to mine to break through that barrier where money starts entering my hands for a change. I want to help people, and myself. I can genuinely create value through the things I have learned here on BHW.
