Joel offers to get 10 appointments in 10 days with zero ad spend for gym owners
01:07:00
Joel guarantees 10 appointments without the need to pay for ads on platforms like Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, or Google.
After the initial 10 appointments, the monthly cost is $1500, with a $500 discount if the gym owner decides to start immediately.
The goal is to prove the effectiveness before the gym owner invests further.
Feedback and questions from gym owner John and Mr. Stevenson
01:08:00
Joel emphasizes that the advice is based on real experience in building agencies and getting results.
Mr. Stevenson asks about targeting fish and chip shops in the UK and how to build a database if the customer doesn't have one.
Joel suggests that fish and chip shops may not be the best niche, as it would require a large volume of clients to make it work.
He recommends going after an easier niche where you only need to get them 10 clients for it to make sense.
If a business doesn't have enough emails and phone numbers in their database, Joel suggests pitching them on running ads or asking them to cover the ad spend for a trial period.
The number of people needed in a database for a reactivation campaign depends on the niche and the engagement level of the audience.
01:15:00
For some services like chiropractors, a smaller database may suffice because people can come back at any time.
Services like dentists and realtors may require a larger database due to different engagement levels.
Restaurants may not need a large database if they can attract customers with email offers.
Age and activity of the database are also important factors to consider for a reactivation campaign.
Setting expectations with the business owner is important, and agencies should educate them on the need for a larger database for guaranteed results.
01:17:00
Business owners may not be prepared to fully leverage marketing efforts.
Agencies can protect themselves by setting a minimum number of people in the database for guaranteeing results.
Educating the business owner on the importance of database size is essential.
Conversion rate is not a major concern at the initial stage of database reactivation. The focus should be on setting and closing appointments.
01:18:00
It's more important to take action and proactively reach out to potential customers.
Predicting conversion rates for different niches is not as effective as actually trying database reactivation for 10 people in the niche.
Conversion rate becomes relevant after the reactivation campaign is in progress.
Exclusivity in marketing for multiple businesses in the same area may not be as significant as perceived, especially if the creatives and offers are different.
01:20:00
Exclusivity may only matter if the businesses are very close to each other and offer the same services.
In a small town with limited potential customers, exclusivity could be more important.
For beginners, it's recommended to focus on easier opportunities and not worry too much about exclusivity.
Scaling marketing efforts nationwide or worldwide is possible in the online space.
Local presence is not necessary for building a business, according to the speaker.
01:23:00
The speaker mentions that as a big traditional agency, they did everything related to marketing, regardless of local presence.
They found that simply being locally present did not attract clients.
Instead of networking in person, the speaker suggests sending emails to potential clients.
The belief is that a local presence is an illusion for big agencies.
HighLevel may provide templates for database reactivation, but the speaker suggests keeping it simple and personalized.
01:24:00
HighLevel may offer templates for database reactivation, but the speaker recommends keeping it simple and personalized.
The speaker mentions using a zoom call with the business owner to gather input for text campaigns.
They advise against being too salesy in the messages to create a more conversational and humanized approach.
For prospecting and sales, it's recommended to slice up a large client database and focus on a smaller, more manageable segment.
01:26:00
If a client has a database that's too big, the speaker suggests slicing it up and focusing on a smaller segment for reactivation.
For prospecting at scale, the speaker does not recommend using HighLevel if sending less than 12 to 1500 emails a day.
It's advised to pick an industry that's saturated enough and big enough for long-term success in sales.
Discussion about using multiple Gmail accounts to send outbound emails at scale.
01:31:00
The strategy involves creating a hundred Gmail accounts and having virtual assistants (VAs) send five to ten emails a day from each account.
This approach helps to avoid getting flagged for mass volume outbound email.
Question about the pricing strategy for the DVR (digital video recorder) service for clients.
01:33:00
Is the company charging a monthly fee for the DVR service?
Is there an upsell to a bundle of services after offering the DVR as a foot in the door?
Emphasis on providing new leads and the potential for selling a bundle of services for a monthly fee.
01:34:00
Main focus is on generating new leads through various platforms.
Mention of bundling different functionalities into services for a monthly fee.
SAS (Software as a Service) offer is seen as an option for high-level agencies to separate from traditional marketing agency offers.
Selling SAS offers as a way to retain clients and make the agency business more sellable.
01:37:00
Digital marketing agencies are often dependent on a few people and face high churn, making them less attractive for acquisition.
SAS offers provide a more predictable revenue stream and can be an alternative when clients are not comfortable with the upfront investment.
SAS offers can also be sold when the agency struggles to deliver results in a specific industry.
SAS (Software as a Service) offer is discussed as a way to increase profitability and retain clients.
01:40:00
SAS offer is recommended for businesses that are familiar with marketing and have a client base.
It allows for a steady increase in revenue over time.
The user-friendliness of SAS in HighLevel is expected to improve with the introduction of visual flow and billing management.
SAS offer for 200 bucks a month with two-way text reviews is presented as a way to control profitability.
HighLevel will release a SAS (Software as a Service) feature with improved user-friendliness and billing management.
01:43:00
The SAS feature is expected to have a visual flow for better understanding.
Billing management within HighLevel for clients will make it easier for agencies to deliver.
User friendliness is subjective and depends on how the system is set up.
SAS offer for 200 bucks a month with two-way text reviews is mentioned again.
Database reactivation and lead response management are important for retaining clients.
01:45:00
Database reactivation is a way to earn client's trust and is offered as a done-for-you service.
Lead response management is crucial for successful lead generation.
Selling SAS as a do-it-yourself offer requires the right timing and model.
HighLevel is ready for small business owners to use SAS themselves.
To improve service delivery for clients and encourage them to stay, be realistic in the offers you make and create contingencies for not meeting targets.
01:48:00
Be honest about your ability to fulfill offers.
Create contingencies for not meeting targets, such as paying the difference if the promised number of leads isn't achieved.
Focus on delivering what you promised rather than aiming for perfection. Scaling your agency depends more on marketing and sales skills.
01:49:00
In the marketing world, delivering what you promised is more important than striving for perfection like big players such as Apple and Google.
Scaling your agency is not about quality, but about your marketing and sales skills.
Having 10 clients allows you to test out and improve your offers and understand the industry better.
Results are important in keeping clients, but they won't solely drive or scale your agency. Local market dynamics and understanding the client's business are also crucial.
01:51:00
Results are not the only factor in driving or scaling your agency.
Local market dynamics play a significant role in the effectiveness of ads.
Understanding the client's business and industry is important for running successful ad campaigns.
Focus on one service and streamline your processes for scalable growth. Consider the onboarding process for multiple clients.
01:53:00
If you're earning less than 50k a month, focus on one service and cut out everything else for better scalability.
Streamline your processes to handle onboarding multiple clients for scalable growth.

He suggests offering to save time for eight-figure realtors as a compelling value proposition.

05:33:00
This workshop is focused on launching ads, not just a theoretical class.
It's important to figure out your offer and what result it generates for your client.
Talk in context to the client's desired situation in sales pitches and marketing
02:05:53:00
Clients don't want to hear about the car, they want to hear about the destination.
Focus on the results you can deliver for the client, such as helping realtors close two deals a month.
Differentiate yourself as a marketer by offering specific and impressive results.
The offers that work today may not work in the next quarter, so it's important to have a variety of offers
02:07:51:00
When running ads, it's necessary to swap out offers and use dynamic creatives.
After the first year, an agency should have around 10 offers piled up.
Going into the second year with 10 proven offers gives a strong advantage in offense.
Understanding what the clients want is crucial
02:09:33:00
Thinking more macro on what the clients want is key to success.
The Q&A session was helpful in unpacking the role of SAS in the offer equation.
