    Hello
    So a few days ago I asked for help with cold emailing, a lot of you told me to cold call my potential clients instead, So I did it and the results are good so far, I called 70 client in 2 days , 19 of them gave me their emails and I sent them a 7 day trial account for my service , I made 0 sales because I always offer them to try my service first ( my service is an annual subscription)

    The results are good because I am not from US or other countries , I am from a 3rd world country where people don't get a lot of cald calls/emails ...
    Online marketing here is the same as it was in 10.000 BC

    Now , I can call the clients ,I can introduce my self until "do you have a minute to explain it for you ?" where they always say "Yes" unless they are in a meeting or driving when they tell me to call them back

    My problem , Is I don't think I am creating that image in their mind that they need my product really bad like you guys do here ! seriously some threads here make me want to buy backlinks even that I don't have a website , make me want to start selling products with youtube only to pay some guy to rank my video first page

    So any advices how to sell my product ? How to create that need in their minds so that they buy my product ?

    Also is it wise that when they only ask to send them my website through email I offer them the 7 day free trial by myself, should I stop doing it ?

    That's why you shouldn't try to sell your service but "money", every business owner understand more clients = more money but not all will understand: good SEO = ranking #1 on Google = more clients = more money, that's why when you see someone promising you a good ranking on Google or Youtube you want to buy from them because you can see the correlation but keep in mind not everyone can.

    So I don't know what you are selling but simplify it as much as possible so the business owner can only see that buying whatever you are selling will bring him more money whether it's because he'll have more time to focus on his core business, more leads, etc...


    ps: Congratulation on picking up the phone and calling that's where most people fail.

    You need to show them money and you need to provide them results. It is not enough to simply build backlinks for your clients, but rather to charge a X% based amount that is included in your month fee of service for Facebook or CPA or Google Ads.

    you need to be able to hype yourself. some people would trust you more if you have ever landed a big client. they don't even crosscheck it sometimes. i give you an example. you have a construction company. you did a job for a main contractor of a well-known bank in your country for new ATM machine. your contract was with this main contractor (you are his sub-contractor). technically, you did not do the job for the bank because your contact and your contract was the main contractor of that bank, not the bank itself. however, when you try to present yourself to new client, just hype yourself as if you were the one who made that ATM machine for that bank. by doing this, your client would see you as someone who did a good job with the ATM machine.
