The job market is crazy! The competition is insane!

I recently posted a job offer on Upwork, and an hour later I had more than 60 people applying for this Job! SIXTY!

Are you trying to find clients online? How is it even possible for you to get good jobs with competition like that?

The problem is that on platforms like Upwork, you are competing with freelancers and business owners from all over the world. You are fighting against other freelancers who charge half of your price because they are living in cheap countries. So how do you get the job anyway?

It’s simple: You need to have a better profile than the other guys. And by better I mean a profile that makes clients trust you, that shows them to read in between the lines, and that you are the right choice!

In today’s video, I give you step-by-step advanced knowledge on how to level up your profile on Upwork.

If you are a freelancer or a business owner then you HAVE to check this out! These are the techniques that I have been using successfully for many years and that helped me to build a 6-figure business!

You all know LinkedIn, but you probably don’t use it the way that you should!

This is not your fault! You just do what everybody else is doing there. Here is what most people do: They use it as a social media platform to connect with people, post and consume content, maybe present themselves as experts or even look for employees.

This way they waste the huge secret potential that LinkedIn has.

In today’s video, I show you a few simple tricks how to set up your profile to create leads.

Why is everybody talking about online businesses these days? What happened to the good old business as our parents used to know it?

Everybody wants to do Facebook ads, Dropshipping, Web development and E-Commerce, but why?

I sit down with my friend “Old Matt” – Yes, we look like twins but we have an entirely different approach when it comes to business.

I told him 7 reasons why being an online entrepreneur is awesome and why nobody cares about his old school business anymore.

My arguments include sunsets in Vietnam, dying babies in China, and Austin Powers.

Sales is a very complicated process, right?

 

Well…

 

What people say is that you need to know a lot about psychology, you need to use all the tricks and techniques to master sales. Actually, that is already step two! What’s most important first, is that you understand the base behind sales.

 

You need to understand what’s the client’s perspective, even before you get on a call with them.

 

I invented a very simple analogy of fishing and cooking fish. Sounds weird? Here is how I would explain the foundation of sales to a fisherman:

Did you know that you have a SUPERPOWER? And I am not talking about some fairytale Marvel Invention! I am talking about a strength that you have that makes you invincible – if you know how to use it.

 

The fact is everybody is good with some things and worse with others. What your superpower depends on is your personality type. There are 16 personalities, and they determine what you are best at!

 

Not to know your superpower is dangerous. Not only because you waste your potential but also because you might get into a lot of trouble with friends, partners, and your team. You need to know what personality type you are and also what’s the superpower of the people around you.

 

This way you can use your strengths in the best way possible and get the support of the people you deal with by using their superpower as well.

 

It also helps you to understand each other better and to communicate in a way that you both speak the same language.

 

You have to know if you are thinker or feeler, if you are prospecting or judging, if you are extrovert or introvert. In today’s video, you will find out your SUPERPOWER!

“I don’t have time for that.” – Have you ever heard this sentence?

Well, I hear it daily. The funny thing is that we all have the same amount of time, 24 hours every day. The question is how do we use it.

The simple trick is called “leveraging time” or how I like to call it “buy back your time.” How does that work?

Every day you have a million things to do, a never-ending to-do list and a huge amount of tasks that would help you or your business.

The first thing you need to understand is that those tasks don’t have the same value and they don’t cost the same amount of time.

Funny enough: Many high-value tasks are not very time consuming, many low-value tasks steal away half of your day.

Cleaning your apartment is a real-life example. It takes hours even though you could hire somebody to do that for you at an affordable price.

In business, it’s the same. Let’s say you are offering websites. Selling the project on the phone with a 60-minute sales call costs you 1 hour. If you have a closing rate of 25% and you sell for $2000 it takes you 4 hours to make 2k.

Programming and designing the website takes a lot longer, let’s say a week. On Upwork you can find freelancers to do the work for $400. That means $400 investment can save you one week of your time.

In today’s video, “More Free Time! – How to Manage Your Work and Prioritize Tasks”, I am talking about how to buy back your time!

When I was 20 years old, I dropped out of university. I couldn’t listen to professors anymore, because I had the dream of building a business. I realized that sitting in a classroom will not bring me any closer to that goal.

So I was on my own, had no degree and only a few bucks left on my bank account. I had to make some money…

I asked myself what to do next? How can I make money? Working in a restaurant or getting a 9-to-5 job was not an option for me. I decided to sell websites, even though I didn’t know anything about programming, I just thought, “Hey, everybody needs websites, right?”

Back then I failed terribly. It took me years and the help of many mentors to learn how the business model of selling websites can work. Even though it’s so simple – if you know what to do!

Today I want to share the exact business model with you, that I figured over the time. If I had this model back then, I would have saved myself many sleepless nights…

Here is How to Make $8K/Month With Websites (Business Model Revealed)!

Isn’t that the dream? Having people, that make money for you? It’s actually not a dream; these guys are called sales people!

That’s why I get this question a lot: “How can I hire sales guys online?”

I did sales myself for a very long time until I understood something that changed my approach towards sales forever. Yes, sales is one of the most important pillars of every business, but at the same time, it is very time-consuming.

Sales makes money, yes, but it doesn’t grow the business.

At the same time, it is cheap to outsource sales if you hire your sales guys based on commissions.

The only question is: How can I hire my salespeople?

In today’s video, I share the recruitment funnel that I use and give some hands-on knowledge about hiring sales people.
