When I begun this journey I had NO network and NO emails in my list. In under a week, I was able to collect over 30K email addresses and names from Instagram. By creating a criteria, I was able to filter them down to 8300 likely candidates.
By setting up an automated email sequence, all I had to do was check my email for interested parties.
Then when I found interested parties, I would nurture them through my existing sales process, resulting in about 3-5 new clients each month.
