How do I choose an industry or niche? What should I be focusing on?
There is no “Golden Magic Niche” that beats them all. We will teach you how to do market research and use the numbers to make a decision based on the size of your market and how easy it is to find them. We follow the rule of 1’s on LinkedIn, which means that we have 1 focus at a time. Don't worry too much about picking your niche just yet, join and we will figure that out together, we have a process for this.
We have students from almost every kind of industry you can think of that have got amazing results for their businesses. As long as you are doing B2B products or services, this will be a good fit for you.
You can see successful student stories on our website in niches like:
And many more...
Do I use my personal or business profile?
We have tested this over and over again and on this platform and the results were unanimous - you will be focusing on using your personal linkedin profile to build your business. The reason is that people want to deal directly with other people that they can build a relationship with, not brands that don't have names or faces and just want to sell you something. Think about it if a brand wants to connect with you, it’s generally followed by a very impersonal message trying to sell you something.
The best response rates are direct connections and communications so we meet your clients on their level and have a human to human conversation. You will also pick up much higher value clients this way.
What if I have more than 1 business?
Remember the rule of 1? We will focus on building one at a time so you have complete focus. We will be teaching you a system that you can duplicate later, but for now, we will have complete focus on this 1 business/product/service. The message would be completely confusing for someone coming to your page and seeing that you do everything. We will keep you focused and make sure you are getting results in the one business, then you can diversify.
How much time am I going to need to dedicate to this?
It depends on how fast you want to start generating leads. The training is practical and I share the screen a lot so you should be following with me and generating leads as you go through the training. You can complete the entire course in a week and then you need to dedicate between 30 minutes to 2 hours a day to get consistent results.
We have clients who spend 30 minutes a day and generate 10 high value appointments per week and close 60% of those and we have other clients who spend a bit more time because they are looking for more specific, harder to reach clients.
So you will typically need a week to go through the training and an hour a day to reach out to your ideal clients to generate leads.
How long until I start seeing results?
How fast do you want to see results? You can get your LinkedIn makeover done and start reaching out to people within 3 hours and see results.
What skills do I need to do this? How technical do I need to be?
You do not need to have any level of expertise at all. The program is designed for you to follow exactly what I show you in a step by step flow. We have taken out the need to be an expert at writing emails or any copy at all as I have given you all the copy that I personally use for you to edit for your business.
It does help if your LinkedIn profile is set up but it is also not necessary as we have helped people who have never even been on LinkedIn before and not even had a profile to people who have 32 000 connections looking to turn more of those into paying customers to a deaf lady who could not talk to people over the phone - all of them got results
Will this work in my country?
Yes, we currently have customers in 15 countries and in different languages. I can only give you feedback if its in english or you translate it for me but the principles are the same as we are showing you how to create a human connection. Language or culture are not barriers at all for this process - only your imagination will stop you:)
How is this program different to other LinkedIn programs?
I have been door to door sales for most of my career and the biggest goal was to build relationships fast and sign up clients in the shortest period of time and deliver a quality product or service, I have brought that mindset to this platform so the only focus is on generating leads and getting new customer.
We have been running this training for 2 years and have been running live events as well and every person that has been through the course and done all the work has got results in one way or another. This is a proven, reliable and sustainable system and the fastest way to connect with your ideal client without going through a gatekeeper so you can generate a steady stream of high value leads each day for your business
Can I target my exact ideal client on LinkedIn?
Yes you can, as long as your focus is B2B leads and your are being specific about who you are looking for, you will find that this is the best and the easiest way to reach your ideal client. There are specific search criteria that are available to search from:
Years in current position
Company working for
And much more…
Some good examples of searches we have run before have been lasik eye surgeons in the USA with established businesses. C-Level executives of technology companies in the USA and UK. Owners of education and training organizations, chairperson and directors of NGO’s to name a few.
Are there any other costs? (license costs, software costs etc.)
There are no advertising costs, the only other investment will be for Sales Navigator, which is about $70 a month and you get a 30 day free trial which we will use to its fullest potential in the course. We make sure that we set up everything before we begin the trial so you can get the best use out of it.
Later in the course, once you are using it and consistently generating leads, we will be showing you how you can use tools to automate LinkedIn and there are separate costs for that as I do not own the software - that will be made clear when you are ready for it.
