  • He wanted to start his own business, but he thinks that being an introvert will be a challenge. So he became a copywriter and built his website.
  • He got to experiment with writing and how to approach people, eventually developing strategies to deal with big companies
  • From trading, his start-up business transitioned to offering services per entity or client, growing into an agency after four years.
  • The goal is to make your clients realize your product is relevant and helpful.
  • Do not “spam” them and overwhelm them with messages.
  • If you cannot let them stay, that is completely fine.
  • Just engage people who want to be engaged.
  • It’s about what you can help people with and connecting on a human level
  • Filter out prospects who are are not the right fit for the business and spend more time with the right people.
  • Once your targets are filtered, devote more time to understanding them.
  • Find ways to help and offer them something of value.
  • Know your audience; capture as much data as you can on them.
  • There are software and tools that are available to aid you in finding the right email addresses.
  • Build an email list of prospects and craft email sequences.
  • Use programs like quickmail.io.
  • Do not send emails to generic email addresses
DIRECT MAIL (15:39) 
  • You can use direct mail in combination with email outreach
  • “Everyone is going online, and no one is going offline.”
  • Excellent packaging will make prospective clients curious.
  • Take note that it should fit into the overall theme of your marketing strategy and enhance your brand.
  • Always find the most effective way to get the best results.
  • Adopt the working strategies and apply them to other clients.
