Sales Funnel Consultant - copywriting, consulting,...

United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 5

I build automated conversion funnels using ClickFunnels. I will essentially create a business for you. All I need from you is your products and content. I have been building websites, driving traffic, and creating conversion systems since 2009. I have built over 100 WordPress sites and built conversion funnels behind most of them. I have setup my business as an "all in one", done for you, internet marketing and sales funnel development service so you don't have to manage another team. I have studied under some of the most successful internet marketers including Eban Pagan, Frank Kern, Brendon Burchard, Russell Brunson, George Brown, Anik Singal, Perry Marshall, Ryan Deiss, and Perry Belcher. My biggest takeaway from the thousands of dollars I spent on their programs and countless hours of studying is this… He or she who is ready, willing, and able to spend the most money to acquire a customer wins! I learned that from Ryan Deiss and he learned that from Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon. Jeff spent millions of dollars and busted his guts for 6 years before he made any money. Maybe you are not that aggressive but for most entrepreneurs that looks like setting a conversion funnel up and driving lots of quality leads. This allows you to see what works and what doesn't so that you can put more money into marketing, which means more profit for you. The biggest challenge for most business owners is setting that digital sales funnel up. Most entrepreneurs are too busy with day to day operations and don’t have a few hours a day to learn something new and another few hours a day to implement it. That is where I come in. I will set you up with a 5 piece system that looks like this… 1. Lead Magnet: Drive people into your automated system by offering something compelling and valuable for free. 2. Trip Wire: Offer something even more valuable for a very low cost to sort the curious from the serious and reimburse you for some of your ad costs. 3. Core Offer: Now that you have under-promised and over-delivered two times, they are really starting to dig you. They are beginning to envision a long-term relationship and may be ready to buy your main thing. You should be profitable at this point and if so, you have a self liquidating offer which you can scale. 4. Profit Maximizer: Offer them something that complements your core offer. Usually this would be something that automates the process or makes their life easier or better in some way. For example, if you sold golf clubs, you would want to offer a golf bag or a golf membership. If your core offer was consulting, offer a done for you service. If you are a landscaper, offer annual fertilization. This is the icing on the cake. 5. Return Path: Now that you know who your prospects are and have identified a few different types of customers, you should segment your email list so that you are sending relevant messages. If you have been building your email list but have not been utilizing it effectively, it is because you have not segmented your list and setup autoresponders for each segment. The first 4 steps happen instantly. They opt in to your email list and these offers come one after the other. The 5th step is your email automation: this happens gradually over time. With all 5 steps you can sell your products and services automatically and make way more money than your competition. If you are the kind of business owner who really believes in something like this but doesn’t have the time to implement it, I am your solution. If you hire me, we will work closely together over the next few months or years as I build, test, and optimize your sales funnel. The reason my rate is $75/hour is because I do not have a bunch of stats and data. As soon as I do have more proof, my rate will go up considerably. But for now, remember that my system is proven by others like Ryan Deiss. We all know the internet is here to stay. We all know that advertising online is legit and we all know that automating the sales process will save you time, money, and frustration in the long run: not to mention you become exponentially more scalable. So, the only question left is, is Nick the right guy for the job? Through oDesk you can see that I am legit. Maybe I don’t have decades of experience but who does? This internet thing is still evolving and there are very few people in this world who can do what I do. And the ones that can, are too busy doing it for their own businesses. For $75/hour, I think it’s worth the risk. My mentors charge $15,000 MINIMUM to set one of these funnels up. The value of what I do is much more than $75/hr and since the system I create for you is yours to keep, you will benefit from it for years to come. It’s what I like to call an exponential ROI. Keep in mind, building sales funnels is time intensive and I can only handle a few clients at a time. Best Regards, Nick Graff PS - To see my package deal visit http://dfyfunnel.com/ .

If I can't find a way to save you as much as the cost of consultation... it's on me. (no charge) Frustrated and need intelligent help with the abundance of techie tasks holding you back and eating up time? I can personally help you . Making sense of conversion rates, online behavioral marketing, funnels, landing pages, email campaigns, CRMs, social media, memberships, HTML this, CSS that... [What is a cPanel again?] the list goes on and it's mind numbing at best. You need to work on your business. Let me take a load off your shoulders. HAVE SOMETHING MORE ADVANCED IN MIND? Throw me a curve. Do five figure months bore you to death? Do you currently gross more than $1m/yr ? Let's cut the small talk and play ball. SERVICE OFFERINGS & RATE SCHEDULE - Analysis / Website Development / General IT / Marketing / InfusionSoft & similar software related tasks totaling up to 30 hours per week. $35/hr - Long-term consulting greater than 10 hours per week. $65/hr - "As Needed" Consulting. $100-250/hr dependent on specific industry experience. TURN 'WORK' INTO PASSION & PLAY Do you want the freedom to spend more time with family and friends? Travel the world? Live spontaneously? Imagine walking the great Wall of China, Swimming in Bora Bora, Climbing a Mayan Temple, or Leaning Tower of Pisa. Perhaps go snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef or simply watch the sun set from your favorite resort 1/2 the year? I have done all of this and much more, and I can help YOU realize these types of dreams too! It begins with a relaxed mind and a well oiled online business. My experiences which span 24 years in business and 30+ years online are concentrated on community building, business processes, marketing and general analysis. These skills have been exercised across several industries including: Retail, eCommerce, Hospitality, Fitness,Travel, Real Estate, Charities and Online Community Development. I will work closely with you to understand your exact needs, goals and ambitions. Together, we will discuss the situation and brainstorm potential scenarios until we narrow the field to a working solution. If you require ongoing support, I will be there for you when the time comes to review progress and suggest/implement tweaks as your path or details change. Helping people achieve business goals based on their desired lifestyle has become a passion. I have personally earned a lifestyle which has taken me around the world and have experienced things most will only see in a magazine or on television. It is my purpose and goal to help others create a situation for themselves, where they too have this opportunity to live out loud. During the interview process, I will listen carefully to your concerns and weigh all options before moving forward. I am not looking for a 'job' as much as long term partners. If you have a great idea, a solid team and sufficient finances to back it up, but are lacking a piece of the puzzle... I may be able to help you. As much as you will interview me, I will interview the situation and will only accept contracts where I believe the client will ultimately be successful. My schedule is purposefully left fluid as much as possible to accommodate client deadlines, the beach and sanity. We are most productive when we are energetic and full of life. I can help you create a similar situation for yourself. Due to confidentiality reasons, previous business relationships will not be displayed on a public profile. Please do not ask for samples of business, marketing or strategy plans as these files are critical to the survival of a company, could violate NDA's, unduly expose IP rights and open the doors for legal action. You should expect the same level of respect and confidentiality from me. If you are serious about taking the next step. If you honestly have a burning desire and are ready to do whatever it takes... we need to talk.
