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/ .

Australia - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 10

Born in a competitive environment where a pause was an error and an error was a catastrophe I quickly learned that desires had to be gained too. A programming and IT industry background gave me an analytical thinking that, coupled with a natural cool blood and patience, makes me able to solve the most complex issues and obtain the best results even complex tasks with pressing deadlines. Well before the legal age I had to take the reins of a family business, giving it a x3 income boost in less than two years, while my home country faced one of the worst crises in the recent economical and political history. That was only the sparkle that started it all; I've already two successful start-up under my belt (from initial business plan to deploying) and the chance of new challenges makes my mind rev faster. I'm an "hands on" approach lover and if I choose to undertake a project I always succeed and exceed expectations. When I wished to learn about web and social media marketing I ended up writing a book aimed at new start-up and entrepreneurs. I'm a great buyer, I love it; give me an internet connection and an Excel spreadsheet and you'll have the best buy at the lowest possible price. When I find a good offer, then I'll make it a bargain. I've experience in leading and coaching small to big sized teams (50 people) through complex tasks and tight deadlines. As an added bonus I'm passionate in everything is complex and, thanks to a continuous learning process, my knowledge cover a vast amount of different topics.

If you answered "Yes" to any (or all) of the above, send me an interview request today. I always aim to exceed my clients' expectations, and a review of my client feedback will confirm this. I'm looking for interesting projects in the following areas (preferably in the real estate industry, but open to interesting alternatives): - light web design work/customization/consulting for real estate agents & brokers - lead generation / internet marketing consulting for real estate agents & brokers - automation consulting (I can help you get rid of time-consuming / redundant / redundant tasks so you can focus on more important things) Preferred Contracts: - $300 minimum (if flat rate) - Less than 5 hours per week (if hourly) Send an interview request today and let's see how I can make your project a smashing success! I've been designing websites, graphics, spreadsheets and software for over 17 years, over 95% from scratch. My specialty is the area having to do with "Direct Response" methods of lead generation, having studied almost every Dan Kennedy book and dozens of self-study courses over the years. I eat, breathe, sleep and dream sales and marketing. You think like an entrepreneur, and so do I...because that's almost all I've known for over a decade. I've been self-employed in some form my entire adult life. Borderline-obsessive work ethic is just another day at the office. I've gone through Tim Ferriss' "4-Hour Work Week" almost a dozen times. GAME. CHANGER. If you've read it, you know what I mean. If you haven't: read it. Real Estate Experience: - licensed residential real estate agent since 2005 - full-time real estate agent 2005-2010 - worked with investors, relocation companies - former real estate Board member + teacher Web Design And Lead Generation: I have spent the past 9 years working extensively with: - Custom landing pages/"Squeeze Pages" (many for the Real Estate niche) - AWeber + GetResponse automated email delivery services - Loan Pre-Qualification forms (designed for real estate agents + residential lenders) - Tons of form-filling processes and data capture on the web - Wordpress integration, theme customization, and theme-building - Internet Video integration - PDF/eBook generation - Fixing bugs so sites display correctly (a necessary evil) Sales & Marketing: - I've been selling enthusiastically since the age of 5 (it started with selling pencils door-to-door. I made $2.50 in 15 minutes. My mom yelled at me and made me return the money. It was on this day that my disdain for authority was born...) - I own (and actually completed) more sales, marketing, real estate investing, and real estate agent training courses than I can count (over 100 at least) - I hired a professional sales and marketing coach for approximately two years while practicing real estate, and amassed a well-rounded business education along the way - Barely old enough to vote, I spent 3 years selling telecommunications service and building sales teams I've also spent more time than I can count on: - Writing custom email campaigns - Writing eBooks and Free Reports for website give-aways - Designing custom graphics, flyers, and advertisements - Designing website elements (logos, buttons, banner graphics, backgrounds, etc) - Copy writing / sales letters (long- and short-form) Long story short: I have a strong background in the many aspects of internet-based sales and marketing, I love sales and marketing, and I'm a stickler for details. Send me an interview request today and let's see how I can be an asset to your project! I'm very familiar with the following languages and tools (if your project requires them): - HTML / PHP / CSS - Javascript / jQuery / jQuery Mobile / AJAX - Adobe Photoshop / PSD-to-HTML - MySQL databases (and website integration) - Microsoft Excel (I've designed hundreds of custom spreadsheets and 3 complete software solutions for myself and clients) If you're looking for a developer or content writer with a strong background in the finer points of sales and marketing, one with an obsession over the details, one with a thorough understanding of what it takes to generate you more business and get you more email subscribers, send me an interview request today and let's see if we're a match.
