I’ve easily made more benjamins as a result of following the great Ben Settle than any other “guru” or marketing expert out there. In fact, since I first listened to that podcast on that fateful day where I discovered him…
I’ve quadrupled… and am about to quintuple my income.
HE is why I email everyday.
HE is why I stopped hard teaching in these here posts.
HE is the one who cured me of my shiny object obsession.
If my business is my baby… then HE is it’s baby daddy.
One of the many things he taught me is how to sell without feeling like a class A jack-wad or sounding like a cheesy infomercial. But wait… there’s more… yet, being MORE persuasive and getting BETTER results.
And, as I’ve said, the proof is in the pudding.
It frees you up to be aggressive.
And, be yourself.
And, just focus on making good s!@#.
And, let the chips fall where they may.
And, this stuff is DEADLY effective for freelancers. What I’ve found is most people are sick to death of all the bull-shizen and marketing-speak. They find it refreshing to have someone just be blunt and direct with them.
And, not beat around the George H.W.
Of course, you’ll always have your jack-wagons.
And, your freebie leeches…
Who whine and moan because you stop letting them suck you dry of value.
Including the ones that’ll inevitably reply to this post.
But, the VAST majority appreciate it.
They respect you more.
Trust you faster.
And, are 10X more likely to buy what you’re peddling.
(And no… it’s not just “be a jack-arse”.)
Anyhoo, I share this approach to selling “elBenbo” taught me in the first few minutes of Lesson 6 in my Beginner’s Guide to Freelance course. Who knows? Maybe, it’ll completely shake up your approach and your business like it did me.
