Everyone gets email spam, your contact info is plastered all over the web.
No, I don't usually reply the emails written in terrible English and offering to destroy my SEO with combined Fiverr gigs.
Today I thought, 'fuck this, I'm going to do something about it'.
Here's what I did:
1. Take your average email spam offering SEO and/or web design services
I am Vanessa,
Manager Online Marketing
To introduce, we are an ISO 9001:2008 certified Indian Web Design and Development firm and have over 10 years of experience. We have been partnering various digital agencies all over US, UK, Australia and Europe.
As you offer Web Design and Development Services to your clients may I propose an association between the two firms. In these tough times, where it is hard to maintain the top line, we can help boost the bottom-line for you.
We can execute the Web Design or SEO projects on a white label basis for you at a much lower cost than what it might be in house - No compromise on quality!
Our Primary Services includes:
Web Design and Development
Web application development
Mobile web development
Do let me know if you are interested and we would be happy to connect with you and discuss more in detail about your project requirement.
I look forward to your positive responses mail.
Email id: Vanessa@xxxxxxxxx.org
2. Reply with Interest
Talk to them, pretend like you're actually interested in their terrible white label SEO services.
The key is to build some trust here, I doubt you'll have any problems here.
Ask them about what they offer in their packages, types of backlinks, onsite SEO and all that good stuff.
Hi Vanessa,Do you offer review copies for your SEO services?Send me your package info.
3. Bonus: Their Package
I won't go into detail about how terrible every is. Someone once covered that a lot of SEO services can be made by combining 4 or 5 Fiverr services, wrapping it up and selling it for x amount of money.
4. Ask for their Portfolio
It is completely normal to ask for their portfolio for validation. What did they give me?
A list of 10 clients and the keywords their ranking for.
Here comes the most crucial part:
Contact each one of the site owners after some brief analysis and inform them of the terrible SEO issues with their site(they will definitely have some).
Work your relationship building skills here:
No need to stop email spam, use it!
So as you can clearly see, this was the easiest way to build a sales funnel. Remember, the next time you see someone from India emailing you, see it as an opportunity!
