    Hi everyone, here i am with another method on how to make money. This is tested, achieved, and proven to work. It is an offline method, and outsourcing to fiverr or other gig sites. Let's get to the method.

    1. Print out a small business card emphasizing on the service you want to offer.
    Example " Bob Michaels" "Business promoter" "reach your audience"

    2. Go around your town/city and visit all the independent shops. Usually they would have a container where you can place your cards. Most of those cards stays there and never reaches the owner. What you have to do is talk to the sales person and tell him/her that you have an appointment with the owner. This is just An excuse ofcourse. The sales person will then direct you to the owner, or would ask you for your business card in which he/she would directly give it to the owner. The idea here is to find ways to influence the sales person to directly refer you to the owner. The above is just an example.

    3. Wait for a few days, and you should be already receiving a phone call from owner asking who you are. Done. You have the attention of the boss. Now set a real appointment or message/call him about your business proposal.

    " hi i am, blank, i would love to help you promote your business" i am a blah blah blah and i specialize in bla bla bla. If you're interested, please give me a call.

    4. In my case, i set an appointment, and got a contract worth $2k for business promotions. I bought several custom reviews, logos, and everything else that involves promotions. Make sure you are sepcific to your the services you are offering to your customers, hence a contract. It took me 1 week to get everything from fiverr, and it cost me $90.

    I tried it again with a different shop, and it worked. You just have to sound realistic and convincing. That is the key. Appointments would also increase your "conversion rate" than messaging or phone calls. Business cards are helpful as it is a sign of professionalism. Rinse and repeat.

    The best part of this method is that once a prospect becomes a dustomer, they will most likely remain a customer.

    good tips.. TFS..

    But not everyone is lucky to get client this easily i guess.

    I tried couple of times with emailing, cold calling, appointment also but not getting client as their expectations are high but they want to pay a little peny!

    If you're taking everything from fiverr you cannot be serious about running a longterm business. Sorry, but basing a substantial part of your services on fiverr won't last long imo.

    that's not 2000 $ , thats 2000-90 = 1910 $
    + that's not 3 hours
    you are misleading people on BHW as well as your clients who probably won't appoint you for ur BS services again. Good luck !

    You need to know your prospects. Again and again I see Walmart posts that make 1 penny from a prospect. Good for you, but some of us know how to make gold mines from prospects. Generally speaking, is that where your idea prospect hangs out? He just goes around to every mom and pop place to visit? LOLz, works for some if that is where their target prospect visits, but it's mainly a waste of effort for most. Targeting key areas is the vital part here, but since you like Walmart's tactics go ahead and do that. I just know I don't shop for gamers in a grocery store, I shop for gamers at hubs, events, and spaces where I know they are looking to buy a game.
