Intro(Why I'm Leaving My Last Journey) Hey guys, you can see I've been trolled a bit in the lounge for asking about guru courses. So, I've confirmed there aren't shortcuts. That's fine haha. Now, I've gotten a quite a few jobs on Textbroker. But, I don't care to do the most crowded thing on the Internet for pennies per word. (They also demand articles that read like some chemically castrated English professor wrote them) If I learned anything from it, it is to just do it. Content serfdom revealed that writing content is nothing like I imagined. Also, I'm only an above average writer, but I have been coding for years. Why am I leaving that resource on the table? Plan Outline My plan is to do a slightly more specialized thing for 300 to 500 bucks a job. And that is web design. I will basically cold call ugly and/or slow websites. Basically, I'll customize my themes with their info and show it to them during my call. The idea is I have something in hand. Most web designers offer the promise of a site one day. With this method you can offer a site done for them right now. That is easier than using Wix from their perspective. Running a business is stressful and this alleviates that instantly. This is based on a method I found on BHW. When I can post links, I'll share it. I already know how to design sites, and I'm not afraid trying to help a faceless phone person. At the very least I'll learn something. WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO COLD CALL??? It seems there are two solid ways people on BHW make serious money with limited capital: rev share affiliate programs with churn 'n burn traffic sources skills arbitrage: taking highly competitive skills and offering them to mom and pop businesses I know dick about getting traffic, so that leaves me with the second option. Basically, if you look at the off-line methods, there is much more money per transaction. And there's fewer $5/day kids like me running around. Also, I'll improve my ability to persuade others. That's valuable even in a world with no money or technology. I'm sure it's a pain in the ass, or it wouldn't be worth doing. Maybe this will work, or maybe not quite. First thing I have to do is act. Then I will have something to assess. ONLY THEN, can I consider changing my response. Otherwise I'll be trapped in a loop of mental masturbation. Decision "Metrics": Make 4 pitches a day to hand targeted prospects. Make 5+ calls to each prospect for follow up. Prospect at least 50 businesses before moving to another journey. Goal To Focus On Right Now: Make 1 sale of ~$400 no later than 8/21/17. This is my goal because repeating that every week would enable me to move out and be less of a dependent piece of shit. A lot of people have become infantile and helpless, I'm not one of em'. Possible Goals Afterwards: Make 2 sales a week in order to build a nest egg towards building web business software Hire a designer from Fiverr, so I can focus on selling. Choose unmet problem(s) for web business SaaS. Specifically Wordpress. I'll update every three days, so that I don't spam my post count.
