    EXECUTION Starting Local Lead Gen Business

    Not too interested in going through Google's policy right now, but a huge benefit of the "lead gen site" model is putting your own credit card on the account. Once you scale, you might be spending 5 or 6 figures per month on ads... with a 2-3% cashback card or a card with good flyer miles...

    Deliver Value Upfront

    This might be obvious for a lot of the members here, but it's one that took me a while to truly understand and internalize. If you are doing outbound/reach marketing, you HAVE to deliver value upfront. Unless your offer/value proposition is absolutely insane, there is no other way. You must...

    RANT A week of work down the drain...

    This thread derailed quickly My thoughts 1) So you "lost" a week of time. Big deal - be prepared to have let-downs far beyond your wildest imagination. The more you prospect, the more you'll realize that people's wishy-washyness is the default. You have to work real hard to refine your...

    Give it a fair read and if it doesn't work out, then be realistic and say something like "Disclaimer: I only read 4 chapters but the writing tone just didn't work for me" Instead of "That book sucks" Nothing wrong with judging if you're honest about what material you're basing your opinion...
