    Totally Agree. I think one main benefit from having people go over to a LP vs just call or send an email is that it's lower commitment and you're able to give more information through media like video, educating them so that they are more likely to request a call.

    But at the end of the day, pretty much all offline high-ticket products/services do end in a phone call. It's hard to get around that (there are exceptions, of course).

    [Day 10]

    Short update. Continued to produce DMs. Email scraper guy messed up (AKA I didn't give clear enough instructions).

    Will be sending out first DMs Today. Ready to rock and roll now!

    Love to follow your challenge and I've some questions :
    - Why did u leave Germany for USA ? More scaling opportunity?
    - After dropping out, what was ur first job, where did u get your first revenues? And how did u get your first paid job in this area with no testimonial and portfolio?
    - So you said that u use AIDA and 4 letters in your direct mail. One letter is for testimonials. What for the others? I understand that you can't show us your letters but could you write a little exemple with another business (imagine that your contacting sushimaker or idk..) ?
    - You help those companies to increase their conversion ratio, right? What do you really do when you work fo them? Redesigning the website, create better cta, split-testing...?
    - Would be awesome if you take the first direct mail you did a few years ago in Germany and show us what you would change on this mail and why it failed.
    - Didn't understand why you want also the email if you direct mail ? You send those emails after they received your DM of before ?
    - On the DM, their is a cta to call you, right ? You said that you offer a lot of value during the first call but at this moment, you don't have the time to check their website. So you ask to schedule an appointment? Or you have a script with a lot of questions to know where they are struggling in and so you can say how they can resolve that ?

    Okay that's a lot of questions, sry but this really interest me !

    Thanks a lot for your response and Happy Birthday Nick !

    "I got a few lead magnets that works really well in that industry"
    So, in your previous business, you created thoses lead magnets and they are generic enough to attract people interesting in medspa?
    When you say lead magnet, this is an ebook, a video or something like that ?

    Ps: sry for "letters" and others english mistakes :rofl:

    Haha, thank you :)

    No, I'm not using the exact same lead magnet (they are not generic but industry specific).

    Ebooks used to work well but nowadays nobody wants them. What's working well for me right now are calculators, quizzes and online assessments

    Buy a Yelp Scraper or Google Maps Scraper. If you can't buy one that does what you need, then hire someone to build one for a few hundred.

    Then buy an email hunter bot that goes to websites and searches for email addresses on about pages.

    No need to have manual "scrapers".

    Loving this thread.

    Keep up the great work!

    - How do you create those lead magnets ? I mean, what plugin/tool you use?

    - At the end of the calculator, quizz, online assessments, you say something like "Put your mail adress below to see the results" ?

    And others questions for your next video : :innocent: :halo:

    - Did you create a new agency website and a new name for this specific business? Or do you use the same website you use for your other business ?

    - For your previous business, you found new clients only by DM, cold calls and cold emails or also with facebook ads and Adword?

    - Do you use "we" instead of "I" and others methos to appear bigger ?

    - You said that you need 6 clients to get your 3KMRR so you charge ~ 700$ (with the taxes)/mo each. Do you have only one price on your proposal or more with options ? (like in the free book "Breaking the time barrier")
    I ask this question because your German friend closed a 15K$ deal, following your advices. Did he charge for like 18 months or did he offers something else more valuable ?

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    I have both a Yelp and Google Maps Scraper. The problem with these are that I only am targeting Medspas that are getting the most organic search traffic since what I am offering is something that helps them with conversion (which is of little value if they aren't already getting traffic). Also, I'm looking to get the owner's name (this is very important). If I send direct mails just addressed to the business, the front office/secretary will get them, open them and decide what to do with them...

    Yes, automated email scraping tools could be helpful. However, I think the highest quality emails are those from the owner where you have to "dig" a little more since these are not filtered through secretaries and fewer marketers are hitting them up. Less noise = higher chance of responding. For the time being I'm not going to pursue email outreach.

    I've answered your questions in today's video:

    [Day 17] First Consult Scheduled + LinkedIn Outreach


    Finally got the first consult on the books. I've decided to supplement the direct mail outreach efforts with LinkedIn.

    Is anyone doing any LinkedIn outreach to get clients?
