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.

I started this 3 days ago, following John’s suggestions, and I gained the Upwork Rising Talent badge in less than 2 days. I have a call with my first potential client tomorrow. Thanks, John!

John is the man! I followed his steps and I am flooded with interviews in a week. I got into two Talent clouds. The very next day, I got an invitation from the talent specialists from Upwork and a lot more. I wanna shout out, he is the best in this. Thanks John for helping me out!

After viewing John’s course, I made an Upwork account and it got approved the same day. Amazingly, I got my first job the very same day, I couldn’t believe it, I thought maybe I got it by coincidence. Anyways I completed the job and received my first earnings. Then, after two days, I got another job and within a week I got 3 jobs and completed them successfully. All the things he says seem to be minute but have a very great impact on your freelancing career.

I’ve been in an existential crisis for the last week about what the heck I’m doing as a business owner. Even though I’ve been a business for about a year, I’m constantly trying to think of how to prune and refine services. This was very personable and enjoyable to watch. Usually, business courses like this are dry and hard to get through…. repeating the same things over and over again. This was a breath of fresh air. THANK YOU.

I’ve definitely learnt so much in 2.5 hours than I’d learn watching different videos online on Youtube and reading tons of articles on the web. John has a natural way of teaching, where he is passionately diving in the topics and he makes it very easy to grasp — someone who wants you to really start running your business well by learning about the right tools and implement them in your online business. I will definitely share with many of the people I know who have been struggling for so long, I did find my answers and I’m sure will do too.

I have been following John Morris for several years now. His instruction ranges from beginner to advanced, to CEO-level guidance. I have referred friends and clients to John, and have encouraged my own daughter to pay attention to what he says. All of his teachings create wealth for me (and happiness for my clients!) I can’t speak highly enough about John, his name is well known in my home.

Sukh Plaha

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!

John has been the most important person in my freelance career ever since I started. Without him, I would have taken 10 or 20 years more to reach the position I am at now (Level 2 seller on Fiverr and Top Rated on Upwork).
