Hi, Many of you know me as the noob who cannot understand IM, so I've decided to consult my current business partner and begin this offline journey. I have a small background in sales, and my partner has a background in advanced web development. (We are both 17 years old). What we're currently doing: -We've registered as a local Web Consulting Agency. -We provide Web Design, SEO, Reputation Management (Thanks 7878), Social Media creation and marketing, Directory Listing (getlisted.. hehe), and more. -Finalizing and organizing our website, legal documents, contracts, agreements, prospect database, email swipes, white papers, etc. Purpose of this journey: -I want everyone to take something from this. -I want you to ask questions and seek advice. -I want you to help us improve our business because we're also learning. What we've done so far: -Cold contacted 100 local businesses, 20 leads require follow ups, 20 weren't interested, and the rest didn't answer. -Closed one sale ($2000/flat + $100/mo "maintenances fee") at 20% deposit. Why a Shelby? Everyone needs a goal, everyone needs something to wake up to and to be motivated by. My personal motivation is a Shelby - It's my wallpaper on my computers and devices. I look at it before I make any call, and that is my secret to success. My ideal deadline: I am hoping to reach this goal by Christmas. My realistic deadline: I am hoping to have this done no later than March 2014. My Promise: I promise to keep this thread updated daily (unless there is nothing new to report). I will share scripts and documents to help you guys get started (can be found online or BHW regardless). I will share my methods of finding buying clients and how everything is handled. Thank you for reading and participating in my journey. The future looks bright!
