    Let's share our "hacks" we have learned throughout the years.

    I'll start first

    Find clients

    I personally use google maps scraper softwares and linkedin as well as VC backed startups

    Persuade

    Don't sell the product, sell the experience, the gains and profits.

    Don't say I want to sell you this because I am a great marketer, instead say I have been following you for a while and I believe you are missing thousands of potential customers by not implementing proper marketing strategies. If you'd have a look at my past projects I have achieved outstanding results. Best of all I will send you reports every 2 days /week and will teach you how I do it, so you can do it later when I will have too many clients to manage.
    (If he is interested, but not willing to buy yet, offer a free sample)

    I don’t think I’ve been in the business for long enough to have any hacks. But I have noticed that your persuasion tip is totally correct. My brother is a graphic designer, and he says that aside from asking the client what they want the final result to look like, he also asks what they want it to achieve, what they want it to convey to the audience. That’s something anyone can take into their line of work, I think, because it allows you some insight into your client’s core values, which are always important.

    I use the nulled version of them, found them in some arabic hacking forum, so obviously I'm not related to the company or an affiliate of them.

    There are 2 more softwares I have, but can't remember their names. Remind me later when I get home so I can post them as well.

    Btw you can manually search on LinkedIn and Google Maps / Business as well. I will get back to you as soon as I can.

    My favorite hack has to be learning how to do copywriting properly to get the best results.

    Most marketing systems come and go. Fb ads weren’t here 10 years ago, fb chatbots are new, Pinterest only just launched its ad platform.

    But copywriting has been around for a long time.

    If you’re serious about IM, you need to learn how to copywrite.

    You need to know how to get people to do something through words and visuals.

    And you need to be able to look into the heads of your potential money makers.

    You won’t appeal to basketball players completely if you don’t know what’s going on in their heads.

    Any product or service you sell has a core. That core is why someone needs it.

    Copywriting is huge. I’ve spent 10 years so far on it and still learn new things every day.

    Experiment with copywriting. Learn what works and what doesn’t.

    It doesn’t matter what the lead ad platform or social network is in 2030.

    If you know how to copywrite, you will always earn money regardless of the platform you are selling on and regardless of which product you are selling.

    Exactly! Blog posts are a must as well. It's like letting potential customers know that you are serious and are willing to contribute some of your insights, beside showing that you actually know what you are doing.

    Really great advice regarding copywriting. Learning to copywrite in a great way means understanding whom you're writing for and it makes stuff much easier at the same time.

    Ask for referrals if you have happy customers. It takes some time in the beginning, but it grows exponentially.
