How did you conduct your niche research and due diligence?
They give us a pretty cool excel sheet in the group.

We check search volume, population size, backlink, content, and citation amount + the amount of businesses in the area.

It's pretty thorough for sure.

Created content for my website, also picked relevant keywords for ads and a generic little copy. I'm not a genius at google ads haha.

It costs about $5000.

I had a call with them and I was extremely disappointed with the sales person. I actually tried to figure out a way to get out of the call ASAP - it was that bad. Not pushy - just very disinterested in selling from the get go. Even a 10 year old running a lemonade stand can sell better.
Really? I thought my sales call went pretty well, he answered all my questions and was easy to talk to...I had Shiv for mine. Who did you have?

I didn't get Shiv.

All I can say is the guy didn't even bother building rapport. That's why I say a 10 year old can do better cos at least they will be like, "Sir/Ma'am, would you like to buy a glass of lemonade?" with a smile.

Sorry your call didn't go so well...do you have any questions about it I could help you with? Obviously there's nothing in it for me lol, but if you're interested in the model, I wouldn't mind helping a fellow fastlaner out haha.

Hey Kal, I've been reading up on your posts and was wondering if there was a way I can contact you? I'm unsure of the rules here about outside contact, however if there is some way of contacting you please let me know! We are both in very similar situations!

I think you can send me a private message in here. A few others have reached out that way. How exactly can I help you?

Unfortunately there is a threshold for posts to be allowed to message you! It's mainly questions about the course you took, I don't really want to type out a massive huge paragraph in public as it will contain some personal stuff about myself!

Sorry if I'm speaking out of turn!

What happened?
Honestly think I was just too nervous during my presentation over zoom. My mindset just wasn't right. I think I got scared since I was talking to some big guys (which i was) but they could probably feel that coming off me.

Just some personal development I have to work on.

You win some you lose some. No need to worry about it. Note down what you think you did wrong and learn how to correct them for next time.

closed a small deal today, but hey, don't get mad at your money right?...$500 a month. ~85% profit margin.

Niche: tree service
flat rate: proof of calls to justify price.

I saw you posted a different thread asking how to do SEO for big national companies. I'm guessing your uncertainty in your ability to rank them may have played a role.

The good news: you were able to get this door opened. You'll be able to get more opened.

More good news: In our business, it is easy to get the experience we need to have the confidence we need to have. Just set up a site you intend to have a national reach, build it, launch it, rank it. By the time you get, idk, 10k? 50k? visitors per month, you'll have all the confidence you need to get the rankings you want to get. And you'll have a site's data to show that you practice what you preach.

I literally just discovered this thread and your other one a couple days ago after researching extensively regarding this business model and Ippei's/Dan's course. So far I've been able to chat and jump on calls from people who also have taken the course and everyone has said it's been life changing. They say you learn a whole lot more than just lead gen and most people are able to craft other business ideas with the amount of support from the group. Congrats on closing this deal! Keep the updates coming!

Hi Kal-El1998! I actually found this forum while researching Ippei and Dan's course. I was able to talk to a couple of people who've taken it and then was blown off by another. Sounds like you've had a good experience. My two main concerns based on what I researched was the practice of buying backlinks using PBNs. No one I talked to wanted to say they are black hat techniques - I guess they are at minimum gray hat. Still, from what I understand Google strictly forbids it and can penalize your site which means it can be risky for your site and business. Does what they teach heavily rely on this strategy?

Also, I got mixed messages about the Facebook group. On the one hand it sounded like everyone is mostly helpful and supportive with a bit of tough love. On the other hand it also sounded like sometimes it can get abrasive and has a "bro culture" feel to it.

Would love to hear your thoughts on this please.

Thank you for sharing your experience Kal-El1998.

I was wondering how do you make sure you actually get the 15% when a deal is closed? Or rather: How do you even know a deal is closed after you just forward the lead?

Thanks and keep hustling! I am thinking about getting into LeadGen myself. I have experience in WebDev and some SEO.

In the training they teach you how to go out and find your own backlinks, they don't preach PBN's. I've done most of the backlinking and research behind that for my sites.

Some people use PBN's some don't. Personally I haven't seen it negatively effect anyone in the group. What you don't want to fall for is "well google says this..." because at the end of the day google just wants to scare people off. They know that we know how to rank sites (lowkey against their will). Really google just wants people to buy more google ads. Just one of their scare tactics IMO.

I'd say the description of "supportive with tough love" is an accurate description. IMO it's not got a bro culture feel to it. Idk maybe since I'm on the younger end I'm more callused to that stuff...but no one is in the group posting lambos and mansions or shit if that's what you mean. The FB group is heavily moderated and is always kept on topic.

Hope this helps!

Hi! So I like to run my business on a "trust but f*ckin verify" approach.

I know business owners are hit up all the time by sleezebags or foreign scammers from india, so when me as 22 yr old american kid hits them up, I already know I have to fight against the bad marketer / inexperienced kid narrative.

I send them the leads and I will call them up on the first couple to ask if they've closed. Most of the times they're honest.

However I did have one experience last month where a guy took a 40k tree job and ran. Jokes on him though, I called the company who he did the work for up and it's safe to say they'll likely never use him again or recommend them.

The simple fact of the matter is you have to be honest in business. If you're not, you're not gonna last long. Luckily most owners already know this and don't try to jerk ya around.

At least that's my experience with it thusfar.

Yup that was exactly what I meant (re: lambos and mansions) so good to know the group isn't just a big space to brag. I can do supportive with tough love - works well for me. Thanks for your honest response!
