What we're about
This group is specifically for Developers, (UX / UI Designers, and coders throughout the Full Stack) who are looking to get more freelance projects or the "right" full-time job you deserve. Rob, Priest & Jimmy have already gotten their first client by sending just one email, and I want the same for you.
If you’re looking to build yourself a sales pipeline of pre-sold inbound future customers…
...customers who are most likely to be your BEST clients, spend with you more often and for longer periods of time.
Then this is a group for you.
I’m Christian Petrou and I know what it’s like to be a one-stop-shop, chasing my tail, and finishing one project only to find yourself praying to get the next project before bills are due. It’s a vicious circle of pitching yourself across a ton of sites, dialing for dollars, jumping from one networking event to the other (when you can), all while killing yourself to get project work done in between. People fight you on price, want to hire you by the hour, just so they can come back later and nitpick how many hours they THINK you worked. They don’t care how many EXTRA HOURS you didn’t charge them for, do they? You end up working ridiculous hours to get the job done and let’s face it - you’re never really “off the clock”, are you? It’s a pretty thankless job and it can just plain suck. But, that’s not WHY you do what you do. You love what you do. It’s a cool combination of high-tech uber nerdy goodness mixed in with creative expression and your favorite skillset - problem solving.
However, as good as you are at what you do - there’s this other problem called sales. You can’t ignore it and wish it into fixing itself. It won’t magically change and you know you need to do something about it, like yesterday. It’s not a reflection of who you are or that you’re a bad person because your sales pipeline is broken. Like you, I didn’t have a SYSTEM based in the fundamentals and principles of direct response marketing… more on that a little later.
You need a system, an example, a method you can follow and learn from. I mean, that how you learn how to problem solve and code, right? Exactly! lol
Over the course of more than a decade, I set out to learn everything I could about marketing and advertising. THEN APPLIED IT. Unfortunately, there’s more bad information out there than there is good training that actually will produce a result and doesn’t require wheel barrels of time and money.
Luckily for you, I’ve already spent all the money on what ain’t gonna work for you. You’re Welcome. :)
In a true golden propellerhead fashion, I distilled everything that worked into a LEAN-ish type of approach. Where to start, what comes next and what you’ll need to do to keep it that way.
However, first things first.
Today, you are in a relationship economy and the better your relationship with your audience, the better you will do and not have to chase your tail, project to project…
The first question every future customer will look to you to answer is the “prove it” question.
People will look for you to PROVE that you can do what you do. - Simple.
It’s human nature for people to ask this question, whether you have a full time job doing side gigs, a freelancer looking for side projects or you’re an independent developer / designer.
They will still look for you to PROVE IT either way.
And, just like your customers, you’re subconsciously looking for me to PROVE that what I’m talking about can actually work for you.
I hear ya, I get it… and I can’t prove that it will, since I have no idea what stage you’re at, your work ethic, and a bunch of other factors out of my control - BUT firmly in YOUR CONTROL.
What I can do is show you how to get your first client by sending one very specific type of email, so you can PROVE IT to yourself whether this is for you or not. For free, no charge... go get your first client before I sell you on our courses we use to teach VARs, MSPs, App Development Firms and just about every other type of tech company out there. Makes sense?
We will be offering group teleseminars that you can register to join for $4.99 - same as the cost to download that “new app” you heard about and gotta have.
On the UXBS PIPELINE PRIMER paid group call, you will discover:
• Why you should always start with this hidden asset in every sales conversation.
• How to get your first pre-sold UX/UI consulting client using one email.
• Recycling your email onto Social Media for more exposure.
• The Gut-Check email that will push fence sitters to hire you or move on.
• Discover the hidden truths of what it takes to survive in the tech biz.
• Learn about the "real world" business strategies you won't learn about in coding classes.
• Get the fundamentals of selling without sounding like slimy salesman.
• This ONE THING that separates you from the nerd-herd and every other freelancer out there.
• BONUS: The step by step PDF guide on everything you need to get going.
• A SPECIAL OFFER FOR ATTENDEES ...and more.
Teleseminars will be posted in the Events section with all the juicy details on how to join.
