Purpose of this experiment: See if it's possible in a scaleable way to get cold leads and sell something. Experiment:
- Get 100 leads from Upwork.
- Write a 4 day email series offering a discount.
- Send out, see if any sales come from it.
Step 1.) Get 100 Leads From UpworkPart of this experiment is to to be lazy ass hell, so we're outsourcing the lead generation aspect to Upwork. This can often be a tricky proposition because:
- The leads could be "publicly available" contacts which get spammed all the time.
- The worker might half-ass this job and not find relevant people.
- The leads are super ice cold (meaning no relation).
Step 2.) Write a 4 day email series offering a discount.Now to full automate this process we are going to be using a simple autoresponder with some basic logic built in. This is already a service nicely done by MailShake so we'll be using them. It basically keeps sending out an email series, and knows when someone does or doesn't respond.
