πŸ”† My top of the funnel is starting to work

πŸ”† My top of the funnel is starting to work

“My top of the funnel is starting to work, Ton!” was the first thing a CEO from my Mastermind program told me Friday evening.

“You know,” he continued with a smile, “We have been spending 1000s of $ on Google ads each month – and got just crickets. I was fed up with it. So I decided to take a radically different route. Marketing hated it, but ….it’s working”

“So what changed?” I asked.

“Three simple emails…” he replied

So I asked him to elaborate, and this is what unveiled:

πŸ”₯ – Each email focuses on ‘the one thing’ that keeps his ideal buyer up at night.

πŸ”₯ – In the first email, he inspires them to reflect on the consequences of having this problem.

πŸ”₯ – In the second email, he’s triggering the same problem but adding three additional points about why they should care.

πŸ”₯ – In the third, he repeats the pattern but adds one compelling example of a peer that solved this already.

That’s it.

They subscribed toΒ ZoomInfoΒ to build a high-quality list around one particular niche – and from there, with 100 companies per week with a short, plain text email.

𝗧𝗡𝗲 π—Ώπ—²π˜€π˜‚π—Ήπ˜:Β between 5-10% conversion, i.e., appointments each week, at a fraction of the cost. Practically zero.

Key takeaways:

πŸ‘‰ – Connect with your ideal buyers where they are (every one of your buyers has an email)

πŸ‘‰ – Be 100% focused on helping them to solve their most valuable & critical problem.

πŸ‘‰ – Be genuine – show empathy, and offer a helping hand.
