    The title sums it pretty much up. I know it should be possible. But is it harder to get clients via this method using emails? I am not able to use this method with local customers because every company owner are cheap fucks who dont even want to pay 200$ for a top notch website.

    I will try to use this method with international appartments, restaurants etc who have bad ratings. I already designed a great looking revieuw funnel & build sample reports (showing results comparing last month) that I will give my clients every month/week. I will test this funnel out on my mothers company to make a case study of this for my website.

    So my final questions are:
    - Does anybody ever tried to get customers for a review funnel by sending them emails instead of letter and what were your results?
    - How do you receive payments from online clients? I will use 2checkout in the future but I dont want to register a business before having some results as an individual

    I am looking forward to an anwer from you :)

    The short answer is no, not really.

    You could do it, but the amount of emails it'd take to even get a response is not worth it.

    You're better off dedicating your time to writing letters and making phone calls :)

    Yes, I have tried and guess what? "Don't spam idiot" is the reply you get.

    Better go with letter, you at least won't get such a reply.

    The problem is, the most of the people ignore such mails, so it will be useless even to write them even to search for the Mails.
    I would use the old but gold method and write some letters instead, they will do a better job then E-Mails.

    Yeah, I tried it. I didn't have to send many emails to realise that it wasn't worth my time.

    Thanks for answering the question guys. Disappoints me that i've put time in building my funnel system and site and hearing that I woulnd't have an chance to get success by e-mailing because sending out letters isn't possible for me. I live in a third world country and sending letters internationally is impossible :(

    "OLD IS GOD" This Idiom is worth millions here . 7878 had given a lot of though to this before posting this method, so we better stick to old ways.

    90% of my payments are processed through Paypal. I send an invoice to the client and they pay it with their CC or bank account. They get the safety of Paypal and I pay a bunch of fees.

    As for sending emails, definitely won't work. We all get hundreds of spam emails per day, this will just go to the spam folder or get deleted.

    In addition to the replies above I would add this...

    A significant element of the 7878 method is "impact" and uniqueness. That is all lost by email.

    I think 7878's method is/was so successful for him was because it was physical mail. If you're cold calling or emailing, you get lost in the noise with all of the other phone calls and emails.

    I open every single piece of mail I receive and probably 50% of the emails I receive.
