    Cold Outbound Sales Magic | Ep 439

    You're letting people know one-on-one about the stuff that you sell. Today, Alex (@AlexHormozi) talks about how you can possibly leverage referrals and affiliates, an interesting story about cold outbound sales, and how you can profitably grow, even if you're capital constrained.

    Timestamps:
    (1:48) - Oftentimes, using the cold outbound strategy is getting affiliates then affiliates to customers. Getting affiliates are more affordable because they are worth more than a single customer. Alex shares a story of two girls selling energy drinks at the beach.
    (3:12) - Alex dives into the math of how much these two girls end up earning. He discusses the cost of shipping, the product, the labor, etc.
    (4:15) - This is where having a very good product is so important because if you can give a can away for free the thing that you sell and know X percent of people will buy again, then you have an incredibly viral product.
    (7:08) - Marketing always works. It's just a matter of how efficient is it. The problem is it's hard to reach every single person in the world. Since it's a matter of efficiency, we need to have benchmarks such as LTV, and CAC ratio (cost of acquiring a customer).
    (9:00) - Cold outbound strategies can work for any business. You can use it for direct-to-consumer business and other ways like door-to-door, emails, direct mailing, etc. You're letting people know one-on-one about the stuff that you sell.
    (10:01) - A big thing to consider is looking at the ideal cash flow of acquisition, meaning in the first 30 days, the customer, we wanna be able to make back the cash that it costs us to acquire them.

He dives into how he was able to discover this idea, how to apply it, and how it’s a concept on diming imaging admission that you can do as a salesperson to gain the trust of your customers.

    Timestamps:
    (2:07) - Alex shares a story about how he was able to “sell” a product he didn’t have after running out of stock. Rather than saying no to the customer, he gave her recommendations to replace that item and gave her further instructions.
    (3:59) - Selling “Ghost Products” ended up becoming a powerful sales tool to gain the trust of his customers. You also need to know the difference between manipulation and help: intention.
    (5:38) - Gain the trust by giving away the low-margin stuff and then keep the high-margin stuff for yourself. Also, give someone a vision of what their life's going to be like when they're experiencing the benefits.
    (8:01) - This strategy is also an opportunity to offer your upsell with prescriptive closes. Also, we want to figure out ways to associate the usage of the product with something they're already doing.
    (10:22) - It’s also important to introduce the problem you’re trying to solve for your customer if they don’t buy the product. They need to be reminded of why they came to you.
    (12:58) - If you can get this moving at the end of the day, the goal really as a salesperson is to move to their side of the table.

    How I Handle Bad Things From Happening | Ep 436

    How I Handle Bad Things From Happening | Ep 436

    Sometimes, a change in perspective can alter how you live your life. Today, Alex (@AlexHormozi) talks about how we should manage the circumstances or the conditions that come to us, the three different scenarios that he uses to create and destroy meaning in his own life, and how changing your perspective dictates the way you play the game.
    Welcome to The Game Podcast where we talk about how to get more customers, make more profit per customer, and keep them longer, and the many failures and lessons we have learned along the way to $100M in sales. We've got roll-up-your-sleeves kind of hustle with a little bit of cleverness and a lot of heart.
    Timestamps:
    (1:58) - Growing up, there are interpretations of adults that we think are the facts of life when it actually wasn’t. We end up having to unlearn these concepts as we grow older. 2 tools we should use to dictate what is good or bad are time and volume.
    (3:19) - Volume: We should try to think of circumstances like the weather, some days will be sunny while other days will rain. Either way, you need both scenarios. It’s just a matter of how you view the weather.
    (4:21) Time: How much will this situation matter to me 10+ years from now? If you think in time horizons you relieve a lot of pressure in your life.
    (8:15) - A lot of times we inflate the micro importance of things. When in reality, they aren't important at all and we just choose to make them meaningful. Be aware of the levers of meaning that exist.

    Mastering Wealth through Reciprocity, Time, & Sacrifice | Ep 435

    Mastering Wealth through Reciprocity, Time, & Sacrifice | Ep 435

    Wealth is based on the fundamental unit of money. Money is a foundational unit of time. Today, Alex (@AlexHormozi) talks about how mastering wealth is rooted in how you master your time and money, the 3 traits that the ultra-successful share with one another, and how other factors such as reciprocity and sacrifice should matter in your journey to success.
    Welcome to The Game Podcast where we talk about how to get more customers, make more profit per customer, and keep them longer, and the many failures and lessons we have learned along the way to $100M in sales. We've got roll-up-your-sleeves kind of hustle with a little bit of cleverness and a lot of heart.
    Timestamps:
    (1:01) - You can’t force reciprocity in your direction by just jamming so much Goodwill down someone’s throat. When it comes to your business you have to be able to consistently and always have more demand than you can fulfill.
    (3:36) - You want to be able to provide more value to the customer than how much they pay for your help. Ask yourself “how can we provide so much value in excess?”
    (5:02) - Leverage means the ratio between inputs to outputs in a system (ex. inputting time or money). The game of business to aggregate wealth is to play with higher amounts of leverage over one thing.
    (6:04) - Master your time in order to master your money. The 2 components to mastering time are the micro and macro perspectives.
    (10:32) - The three things that made people successful and ultra-successful are having a superiority complex, massive insecurity and fear of failure, and impulse control. Alex goes in-depth on each trait.
    (13:29) - “Why were you willing to sacrifice so much?” The better question to ask is “why are people not willing to sacrifice anything?”

Stephanie the Greek ,

My go to

I have been listening to Alex for months now, and I am stunned at not only what he delivers, but how he delivers it. I’m an entrepreneur with a degree in Philosophy, and he appeals to my mind philosophically, as much as he does entrepreneurially. If you want to understand how to grow a business, this is your guy. If you want to understand your motivation behind why you want to grow a business, this is your guy too. He’s literally my ‘go to.’

FU chive ,

Absolute gold

Hormozi has wisdom beyond his years, likely because he’s put in more time than most have by his age.

I don’t care how long you’ve been in the game, you have something to learn from Alex.
