also when a market becomes more and more saturated - new niches and submarkets appear that float arround that market.
dont be in that saturated market - but maybe develop tools for that market, be an affiliate for that market, merge the saturated market with something new and create your own twist.
saturated often means "filled with the same boring stuff". have a different approach. value skew.
i know guys who started selling print on demand t shirts in 2018 and they are doing great.
you just have to be a bit better than the rest. and in many cases it isnt that hard.
you mean ebooks? i sell a few books on amazon kdp and i never priced below 10€ for softcover books.
i even sell "no content" notebooks for more than 5$
/ the advantage of ams or other ppc ads for books is that it will boost your BSR what could lead to more organic sales.
maybe try a short...
Hey @Fox - Thanks for your answer!
"Spray and Pray" spam wasn't my intention at all. The 100 should just serve as a comparison value so we can compare how much success other people have with Cold Mailing.
I sent 12 Mails tomorrow and will send maybe 10 today. i keep you informed ;)
@GuitarManDan - Did you do cold emails? how many leads/meetings per 100 mails did you generate? i am sending out personalized cold emails to business owners in my region with 1-2 bulletpoints about flaws and opportunitys on their pages - and i dont know what to expect :D
everything in my country is 5 years behind the US ;) ..
yes it isnt the best way... referals would be great but i think i have to do the cold mail/call road for a few months to gain some traction.
networking is great too of course - and i will do that too. but with cold mail i could reach...
Hey Guys and Girls!
all of you doing cold emailing
how much (positive) responses and meetings do you usualy get from 100 mails? how many sales?
i am sending cold emails out cold emails for my webdesign / PPC Freelance Business - Personalized to each business. i point out 1-2 opportunitys...
dont try to focus only on "web design". a website is nothing without a online marketing strategy or a sales system or any goal behind that. dont just sell pretty websites, responsive websites and techy stuff to your clients - sell them the benefits that they will get from their new website and...
@Andy Black i really really like your approach just to move forward and be optimistic about your service and the value behind it. that is refreshingly different from that whole "grind,hustle" pushy salesman stuff.
Love that Image!
The Motto of the People living in northern Germany ( the frisians) is " id rather be dead than a slave" they even have that on their flag
but... i think they think that may not apply to slowlane living.
when refering to PPC - you mean GoogleAds/Facebook/Instagram Ads? I understand "pay per click" but 95% is google/fb/ig ads? maybe linkedin?
/what was your first offer? you mention SEO? Backlink Building? Content Writing?
but if i am good at selling websites and services - why should i stay with the comission and not do it myself/outsource?
3/4 of local businesses just need a good converting, modern looking website and nothing special that would need a deeper coding knowledge.
Selling is indeed the most...
very good point! also applys to art. you dont have to be a starving artist. just learn how to sell.
"selling" is a very bad word for many people (including myself 2 or 3 years ago). reminds us of that cliche of a a pushy salesman or boilerroom telephone calls.
but what is a "salesman"? just...
you have to do things other people dont want to do - but you dont have to be perfect. "enough" isnt enough.
but good enough to launch is 100x better than "i have to make everything perfect to launch"
Check out Printful and Gooten - There is so much more in the Print on Demand Space than T Shirts.
If you are good at creating designs, finding niches and target audiences - try other stuff than t shirts. sure t shirts arent "saturated" but stuff like all over print,leggings,embroidery is very...
Thank you for that in depth reply. covered all my questions.
one more thing. maybe thats a good exemple for your approach and interesting for others as well.
last week i started looking for websites and "selling systems" (dont know how to explain that in proper english) that i could improve...
