So I had 2 sales calls yesterday. I already shared what happened on the first, so here's the second:


Big diaper and masks company. The prospect had a very solid understanding of Facebook Ads so it was smooth sailing. They were already doing 50% of what I wanted to talk to them about, but had no idea about the rest of the 50% and really appreciated the knowledge. They weren't looking to aggressively scale their ads right now, since they have a logistics issue and asked me to set a reminder to contact them again in late November.

They also said that they're in talks with a few other agencies but that none of them shared their strategies outright, especially "personalized for us" like I did and that the others "just kept showing case studies" and that they'll "definitely keep that in mind after we deal with our inventory problem".

And shortly after:

"I enjoyed talking to you and we'll likely seek you out again, but could you maybe set a reminder to reach out to us around late November?". I consider this call a success for sure.

*Sales call No. 3 didn't happen because the prospect had something come up and let me know 2 hours in advance that they need to reschedule, and reschedule they did - as soon as I replied back to them with a "no worries" type of response.


Anyway, just last night I sent the first ever invoice from my digital marketing agency through PayPal.​


It might sound silly but I was actually pretty stressed out about it and now that I've got it all down (including the terms and conditions) it feels so good. I have now completed the digital marketing agency game in full. The whole process. All that is left is for the invoice to be paid, and even if it won't be I still have more sales calls to go this month and feel completely confident in the process and I'm filled with abundance. It took me a few months to figure it out and I got the best help along the way, so it wasn't easy but I'm really grateful that this is all happening.

Also, I recorded a part of my call yesterday and my spoken English has improved significantly since my first ever video audits and our call with @Phikey on the 14th of September. Exactly a month ago I had absolutely nothing going for me and this man slapped me through Zoom. Can hardly believe the progress I've made since then, I definitely didn't imagine to book 4 sales calls in 15 days sending 5 emails per day, but it's now a fact!
any updates?

Hey buddy I hope you're well. I've read some of the latest progress posts.

Have you considered going door-to-door in your city/neighbor cities and trying to close clients face to face?

I'm telling you this because we were closing like ~1 client per two weeks even before we had registered the legal entity, at the time when friend and I were in the agency business.

On the contrary, long time after I left the business my friend got like 3000 US-based leads to pitch his services. He closed ZERO clients out of email and he IS a good closer. I tried to help him with it and I coludnt close shit either. Weird stuff...

Do try face to face and hit me up if u need help with that.

Also, make a LinkedIn profile and try to pitch there. I think, for starters, that response rate will.be much higher. I believe you'll know what to do from there.

Great stuff man!! Huge leap forward from where you were when we spoke in mid-september. You're clearly making progress and fantastic to hear about that first invoice. All the hard work is now bearing fruit.
