Client-getting super powers from the man with 3 names

Brindas Filip Andrei.

Quite the mouthful. Haha. Anyway, so speaketh Andrei (or Brindas… or Filip):

“When I’ve received the notification from Gmail I started laughing as I could not believe that you’ve given me a shout-out. Here’s my average open rate: somewhere around 70-80%. I really believe that cold email is more like a superpower rather than a client acquisition method. Email is so set in stone that you could reach anyone by email if you do the research. This can get you clients (like it did for me), a job, partnerships, whatever you want or need.”

Ah yes… my young padawan.

Such is the power of the cold email method I teach.

When you learn how to do cold email right, the world becomes your proverbial “oyster”. Or the more graphic Tony Montana version. Get clients, land a high-paying job, get new customers. Hell, you could probably get yourself a date if you wanted.

Everybody (except Nick Saban apparently) has an email address.

It’s kinda like that chick Vince Vaughn hooked up with in Wedding Crashers:

“I will find you.”


Of course, the trick is getting your email read.

And making an impact with what you say.

Learn how to do that and it’s like shooting fish in a barrel.

Anyway, with the anti-business direction big tech is headed, it’s only going to get harder and harder to use those platforms to get clients. And, if you don’t think that’s going to bleed over into platforms like Upwork or Linkedin…

I think you’re being naive.

Movements like that tend to eat everything.

Having a “super power” like cold email…

That’s direct, aggressive and hard to stop…

Might just be the thing that saves you.

Anyway, I just added another big lesson to the course — what I call the 2nd layer. It’s about taking the core method and injecting it with jet fuel using a little Facebook “stalking”. Nothing unethical. Just using the publicly available info people give you…

To make your emails and presentations pack even more of a punch…

Based on the concept of Advanced Personalization.

I’ll talk more about that in the future… but it’s really the big “secret” to all this.

Anyway, I show you how to do it in this new lesson.

Of course, as I’ve mentioned, you can get access to both lessons over on Skillshare inside my 11-hour mega-course, Let’s Talk Freelance (Lessons 3 and 4). If you’re already a Skillshare member, you can go here and start watching right now:

If you’re not a Skillshare member, that link will trigger a 14-day trial for you. What some people do is start the trial, take the course and then cancel before the 14 days is up and you end up getting to take the course without paying a penny for it.

It’s a few hoops to jump through…

But, might be worth it for you.

Especially since the course will come off Skillshare at the end of April… at which point, I’ll sell it on my website for prob $100 or so. So, if you want to save yourself some of your hard-earned smackers, this is a great way to do it.

Anyway, up to you.

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!
