Pay Per Call Business Blueprint

I have been totally readdressing my offline business and moving over to becoming a leads provider, and I wanted to give you a behind the scenes look at what I am up to.

And I am pulling the curtains back way further than I should be!

The beauty of the whole system is that I didn’t actually have to have all that much in place to get started! But I am expanding my whole operation, building it into a recognisable brand.

First off, I guess you should know what it’s all about…

Well, I have been “doing” offline for about 8 years now. I started out designing websites for local businesses, and I did OK.

Fairly recently I branched into mobile, reputation management and social media. All the stuff they tell you to get into.

BUT there was a bit of an issue.

I HATE SELLING. With a passion!

I like providing solutions, but the sellimg part is not for me. And one question that kept coming up was “will this generate more business for my company?”

Yeah, a decentlyoptimised website, social campaign, mobile site and reputation management should generate business, but how can you quantify it easily? How can you show a well considered ROI?

That got me thinking about lead generation. Yeah, I can build and optimise websites. I can get traffic. I can get optins.

But that’s all a bit old hat. Selling names, email addresses and phone numbers.

So the BIG WHAT IF!

What if I could provide LIVE phone calls to businesses.

Phone calls from customers ready to purchase products or services.

Heck, if people are willing to pay $5, $10, $25 for a click to a website (often poorly optimised for conversions), how much would they pay me for actual live calls?

Well, it works out at the moment about 6-7 TIMES what they pay for pay-per-click.

Yeah. I found companies paying 5 bucks for a click, they are now paying me $35 for a single phone call!

So here’s how I go about it….

I set up a very simple website to direct companies to (I’ll explain how in a moment)

www dot direct live leads dot com

I built this site in next to no time using the fabulous Elegant Theme

http://www.davelikes.me/elegant

Yeah, it needs some polishing, but it’s already bringing me in business!

So then, I set up my call management software, called Analytic Call Tracking. This allows me to buy cheep Twilio numbers, add them into my system, reroute them to a prospect business’s number, add a “Whisper” message when the number is called and TRACK the calls for duration, where they came from etc.

Analytic Call Tracking normally costs $247, but I have managed to get you a WHACKING great discount!

http://www.davelikes.me/act

I generated leads through Facebook “Suggested” posts. This allows me to really laser target demographics, either personal (male, female, young, old) or geographic. And I send them to simple lead generation sites. These were built with basic WP themes, but I have just started to use this fantastic purpose-built theme from my buddy Maulana.

http://www.davelikes.me/leadgensites

The clever bit…

Well it’s all clever, but the really clever bit is that whenever someone phone the number on the lead gen site, they get a little message saying the call can be recorded for training purposes, but the business receiving the call also gets a recorded message saying “There is a LIVE caller on the line, courtesy of Direct Live Leads Dot Com“.

I send a few freebie calls their way. I have already had several companies contact me through these whisper messages and my website asking how they can receive more of the calls. If I cdon’t hear from a company, I call them up. Most recognise my company name from the calls they have received. I explain that if they want to continue receiving LIVE calls, they need to pay for them.

Most do!

Those that don’t, it’s simply a case of redirecting the Twilio number to a different company. Once you tell them that is what you’re going to do, they often come round ;o)

I am developing the business further by rolling out lead generation sites in new areas and to new sectors., and collecting a lot more data from callers, so that I can build my own maiuling lists, sms lists etc, but that’s stuff I’m keeping under my hat just for now. I wasn’t planning on giving this much away, but hey ho!

So quick recap….

Build business site using Elegant theme… http://www.davelikes.me/elegant
Set up call tracking, routing and whispers… http://www.davelikes.me/act
Generate leads from SEO’s sites and FB Suggested posts… http://www.davelikes.me/leadgensites
Get clients using the “Whisper” feature plus follow up calls.
Wash, Rinse, Repeat!

The Missing Link – Offline WSO

RecommendedThe Missing Link – one of my new favourite WSOs!

It’s been WSOOTD, so chances are you may have heard about it, or even bought it already, but here’s my take on it!

http://www.davelikes.me/missinglink

I’ve always know that LinkedIn can be an incredible tool for generating leads, both for my own business and those of my clients. And I have done OK from LinkedIn. But boy, there were some tricks that we were missing!

Greig Wells is undoubtedly one of the leading LinkedIn experts and he has honed a system that will generate a TON of leads for your business (or your client’s), pretty much on auto-pilot.

It’s all laid out in his “Missing Link” report, which takes you step by step through the whole process.

After a brief intro to LinkedIn, he goes on to show you how to set up your profile – and I don’t care how much you THINK you know about LinkedIn, you need to take real note of this section.

This chapter alone gave me so many “Aha” moments!

Groups are covered next, and this is where the real meet of the course comes in. It’s where I realised I was missing quite a few tricks, and has helped me increase one of my client’s email subscribers by over 1600 in under 2 weeks! And these are all RED HOT leads too!

Then Greig explained how we were generally only being seen by a small percentage of LinkedIn users when they perform searches. And gave the secret to extending our reach far beyond what we expected! And this all ties back in with our profile that we created in the first part of the course.

Because instead of just getting a few profile views a week, this particular client of mine is getting dozens each and every day, and these are being converted into additional subscribers!

The final part of this concise report shows you exactly how you can tie everything together to create a real service to offer new or existing clients. And this was the really fun part for me!

It’s simple, free to do, massively effective and an extremely smart way to make yourself and your clients a lot of money!

This WSO have already brought me new business. It has also given me some upgraded services that I am now offering my existing clients.

In fact, it is quite possibly the best 7 bucks I ever spent!

http://www.davelikes.me/missinglink

Is there an OTO?

Yes of course, but the course is complete without it. The OTO offers a few additional ways of generating even more leads, but you can access the OTO sales page after you have completed your purchase, if you decide that the main course warrants you upgrading (which I am convinced you will)

Will this work for newbies?

Absolutely! It is laid out clearly and concisely. Not only that, it will work for outsourcers too. In fact, Greig uses outsourcers to perform much of this stuff, freeing up his time, though of course it can be done by yourself.

Is this for advanced offliners?

I reckon so. I’d consider myself pretty advanced, especially in social media, but this report gave me more “Aha” moments than any other I can recently remember!

http://www.davelikes.me/missinglink

If there’s one WSO that you should grab, and follow through, step by step, make it this one!

Banner Ad Rockstar – WSO Review

If you have local clients, you should consider offering them Adwords (PPC) campaigns, banner advertising on local “portals”, Social networks and other sites.

But it can get expensive having high quality, eye-catching banners made…

Not any more!

With Banner Ad Rockstar, you can create loads of top-quality banners, with just a few clicks.

Banner Ad Rockstar WSO

And what about your own local directories? If you run a business directory for your area (and if you don’t, you should!), this is the perfect up sell!

As soon as I saw this, I started to see the huge potential, so I jumped right on board.

And, OMG, at this price, it’s EXCEPTIONAL value!

The software is really easy to use and the quality of the banners you can create is top notch. There are loads of templates included in both the main WSO offer and, of course, EVEN MORE NICHES and ANIMATED banners in the One Time Offer, which I would highly recommend.

If you’re serious about your consulting business, want to offer a real value-added service to you clients and want to invest WISELY in your future, you really should take a look now…. It ROCKS!

WpLocalDirectory – bulletproofmoney - Got off to a shakey start when we all thought the OP had deserted us, but it turned out he was in hospital. Since his return, he has updated WP Local Directory several times and introduced awesome new features. This is a terrific plugin to turn your website into a local directory that you can use to wow new prospects and get new clients!

Go-ShortCreates cloaked and shortened hyperlinks, but this has a twist. You can add any html content – videos, optins etc in a lightbox over the site you’re redirecting to – So…. Show your prospects website but have a video over the top of it explaining why there are problems with it. Extremely powerful tool I use for much of my long distance prospecting these days. Buy the script for yourself (and start a link shortening service – or use my site for FREE :)

Well, that’s my list. I’m sure I have forgotten some truly brilliant offline products. If I have, remind me! And please let me know what your favourites are too!

Although I can provide an insight into what’s good and what’s not, everyone else will have their own opinions and they will be a valuable help to anybody looking to buy offline products.
