Consistency is πŸ”‘ when building a startup #buildinpublic
I always thought it would be awesome to raise money for my startup. #buildinpublic
I guess I can remove the chat widget from my site? 4 new subscriptions though

#buildinpublic
I will hit these goals by:
-scaling up cold outreach(4 emails accounts currently)
-automate emails (welcome etc)
-increasing cr of visitors from the website/app to register/sub
-build better backend sops/systems to hire more va's
-run retargets ads (fb,LI,goog)

-test new increased price point ($297/m) and get 20 new subs
-$30k net after fees before 2023

#buildinpublic
Goals for the next 30 days:
-create a content outline with "core content" for the blog. (best conf to attend+review of each etc)
-make it simple to see value from searchable app
-get 5-10 case video testimonials for the managed service ($3k-5k/m service)...

Not great
-confusion/complaints from sharing a google sheet to a bunch of people at once
-cr from website/search app to registration/sub is very low
-management of unsub list is messy
-procedure of buying domain, warming, sending email with new domain is long

Great
-closed a google employee (used @google.com in stripe)
-4 people subscribed with 0 touch
-found a cold email strategy that is driving subscriptions (conversions from sharing a google sheet died down)
-14 pages from the blog are index-getting imps/clicks

I've only sold what we curate as a one time payment 1ce and for $197 ($197/m sub) - I was scared to lose a sale.

It came up again and va sent a one time payment link for $397. Paid within ~2 hrs.

As we raise our p/m sub fee I'll 2x the 1 time payment option.

Best day so far (less than 90 days live). The new subs were sent a cold email yesterday (by my va) and they subscribed. I need to automate the welcome email. I’m sending that manually right now #buildinpublic
Month 1 I offered a 50% off code ($98.5/m). 3 ppl used the code and all 3 unsubbed within 25 days.They wouldn't share anything - only "didn't work".They wouldn't share who their ideal client was,emails they sent to prospects,not open to help - nothing. GL to them

@alxberman how come you gave up on me so easily?
Does this sequence of 3 emails the same day work better vs spaced out on day 1, 3, 5 for eg? #LeadGeneration #buildinpublic
Wouldn't it be nice if everyone that opened and clicked your cta (links to the homepage) from a cold email saw the value as quickly as Alissa? (never talked to her)

Roast my copy and you provide something I can split test. #LeadGeneration #buildinpublic
That feeling when 3 rebills for $197/m each hit and you don’t get angry messages to cancel #buildinpublic

This is the right way to close a deal. Don't give anyone an excuse to "learn more" etc via email. Having a short 5-10 min call will eliminate 8129379873921831 back and forth emails - getting you to the finish line faster #buildinpublic #LeadGeneration
