Hi there! Yesterday I found the AMA written by @yakuzaemme and I couldn't believe how much value he is giving, insanely useful information. I got inspired to start my plan NOW not later. This will keep me focused and hopefully get some feedback on my progress that can benefit others too. My skills are cold outreach and web design so decided to start an agency. I was a freelancer before and I want to increase my income and scale. This is not something original, just something I think I can achieve. The plan: - Will build websites mainly, since I can rely on it (learning fb ads in the meantime but can't offer it as service yet). - Will work for free to get the first customers and portfolio items (not looking for customers on this forum, this place is for keeping me on track and inspired). - Cold email ugly websites for more customers once I have something to show (portfolio created from free work). - Look for people to outsource extra work, once more customers and referrals kick in. - Start with small prices (under 1K) and increase gradually. - I won't offer maintenance or hosting for customers, just get paid per project, will keep it simple and less hassle. - Will maintain relationship with customers and ask for referrals. I think this income plan is doable: Jan - $0/mo (working for free). Feb - $500-$1000 (first paying customer/s - $500 for a small website). Mar - $2000 (increased min price to $1K per site and get 2 orders). Apr - $2000-$3000 (this is the level I've been before). May - $4000 (thinking 2 sites at $1K and the first $2K website... total 3 customers in 1 month.. starting to need outsourcing soon). Jun - $5000 (2x sites at 2k each and a 1k small one). Jul - $3000 (people on vacation, referrals go down, less response). Aug - $5000 (I push it hard to get previous level of sales plus try to get one $3k customer). Sep - $7000 (2 more $3k sites and a small 1k). Oct - $7000-$8000 (hustling more, trying to get a 4k site too). Nov - $8000-10.000 (might reach the goal this month). Dec - $10K (this can be done with 2x sites at 5k each or 3 sites averaging $3.3K). Plan B if I can't go above 1-2K per project enough times: outsource 10 sites per month x1k = $10.000 and still reach the goal. This is not as easy as it may seem, will be lot of work and friction, but I think it's doable. I just need your help to keep my eye on the ball, seems so exciting to reach this goal. It would mean a lot. What do you think about this? Would you add anything to my plan? Hope you can support me to stay on track and if you've been lazy like me watch this thread as I will be productive this year and stick to the plan, I promise!
