Clients

An extension of my post earlier.

I limit talking about this particular income stream because I intentionally limit the people I serve in this area (I’m happy and their happy too because we both get to spend significant time with each other).

To get the best results:

  • Think of ways you can apply this concept to your brand.
  • Read as many entries as you can! Because one of them might be the trigger you need to unblock your creativity. (Yeah I know, that means it’s not likely that you’ll end up as a client…but that’s okay.)
  • Read the FAQ (even if it is cheeky…its still informative!) — if we end up working together…that’s a quick download. Definitely helpful for me to know if we can bond over other things. (Not a requirement…it just moves you up the list!)
  • Understand that I really do constantly generate ideas. Really! And nothing would make my day more than knowing that they are in good hands.

Then

Decide the arrangement you’d be most comfortable with when you send me a message:

  • Fixed Budget (Spots available: 4)- only for previous clients.
  • Results first then Payment (Spots available: 8) – I spend time learning about your brand to find action items (experiments, tests, strategies…) to implement. Then my fee is a percentage (35%) of the results you get. And yes, that means if the result is $180,000 over that period…then my fee is $63,000.

 

Though the first option is decidedly simpler. I give my clients the second option because that way, they already have what they plan to pay for…so I’ll know the client is happy — which means the odds are VERY VERY low for a refund. Less admin stuff to deal with, which means, I can focus on adding more value. 🙂

 

 CAUTION:

If you are someone who is only concerned with impressions (fancy website, photo driving a Maserati GranCabrio — so people would be drawn to you) rather than results (e.g. $72,000 increase sales after 8 months): you are not a fit.

Tempted to try your luck to see if you can ‘game’ the system? Well, no matter how you approach me (by filling up an application form, reaching out directly, or even somehow getting recommended by a current client)…in the end…if you are not a fit, it’ll come out at some point.

Ponder this: Wouldn’t you rather  spend all those hours finding someone who is a better fit for you rather than wait for the day that I’ll say: ‘Sorry…I wouldn’t be able to help you’?

Did this post spark something that you’d like to talk about more? Go for it! Send me a quick note so I can learn about your bumpy (yet exciting!) adventures.

Wait…

Was it was an action!?

Better do that first before sending me that note!

First time visiting? It’ll be great if you head here after reading. 🙂

Comments: You’ll have to reach out to me via Google+ (click on the hangout button), Youtube (when you’re logged in, and on this page, a ‘message’ button would pop up), or Tumblr (visit any one of my pages, and there would be a button that would make a new window pop-up for you to send me a message) to let me know that you are keen on posting a comment. At the moment, WordPress has this weird comment system that uses cookies from other sites, so until they fix it that only cookies come from within the domain…I am unable to view new comments when they come in.

How you can inspire someone through rejection

Just focus on the possibilities.

Similarly to what Seth wrote to one of the 342 people who didn’t make it to his six month alternative MBA:

 

“The good news, and I hope you think it’s good news, is that you don’t need me. As I said before, I have no magic wand, no secret recipe. Your decision to just make it happen, to push forward, to change… that was the hard part.

Go. Do that. Blow them away. I fully expect it will happen.”

 

I think of the last time I felt gut punched (not that I have..really experience it…) after I didn’t get the result I hoped…

…and thought that if I can just find ways to avoid having another person feel the same way I did, I’d do it. A small start is to be extra mindful in any of my interactions with others (and maybe take that extra minute to shift the conversation more positively).

More delicious stuff:

 

Do you have a memorable note (positive or negative) that just gives you energy to go after your goals to make your vision for your life happen?

Guess What I Bought?

“Everyone wants to buy, but no one wants to be sold to.”

I’ve come across this concept before (though that specific phrase may have come from Philip Hesketh’s book —- which I am in the process of re-rereading…just to find that phrase!), thought it was only until I came across this webinar that I understood. Specifically once it hit 7:08 and there was the example of our most likely reply upon entering a store, if we are approached by a salesperson and asked: ‘May I help you?’

 

I got so excited about my discovery that I was keen on reaching out to any of my contacts who were going to be in a similar situation that week. Why? Because I wanted to let them test out some of my ideas — then hear about the kind of responses they got.

 

 

Do you have a memorable encounter while shopping? How did your conversation go? (And do you keep returning to that same shop?) Looking forward to hear your stories! 🙂
