UpMyInfluence.com is a B2B Sales consultant agency that uses authority, generosity, and platform to get our members an unlimited number of sales appointments by accelerating their high-level networking. Our members become high-authority experts in their industry. Through leveraging podcasts, we attract in our clients' dream customers week after week. It doesn't matter if you are a tech startup, author, artist, or athlete. The rules are the same and they all equate to one thing:

Today's consumers and decision makers are too busy to pay attention to sloppy, spammy lead generation marketing tactics. Our clients attract more money, more traffic, and more sales for the products they represent because they make it insanely easy for their dream customers to spend time with them through our huge podcast network.

Let's not overcomplicate this.

In account-based sales and marketing, revenue comes from closed sales. More closed sales? More revenue. You want more closed sales? You need to have more sales conversations. To have more sales conversations, you simply need to be networking at a faster pace with your ideal audience. Spamming high-level decision makers won't work today. We need to invite them with something they really, really want. Successful business leaders invest heavily in being seen – particularly on podcasts. This is just ONE of many reasons why podcasting is the ultimate networking tool for thoughtful, ‘give-first' consultants, coaches, agency owners, and other business leaders who provide big ticket services.

The more time your dream customer spends with you (proximity), their familiarity will rise. With more familiarity, they will trust and like you. You'll gain an incredible digital reputation. Investors will pay more attention. Customers will respect your authority in your industry. Your content will get shared far and wide throughout the web – all doing its job to increase your authority, traffic, sales, and profits.

What you'll learn

UpMyInfluence is disrupting 'old school' B2B high-ticket lead generation

You can spend a lot of money to hire a lead generation consultant, agency, or expert to try to get you appointments with your dream customers. Even if they offer to work on performance only, you will likely damage your brand when your approach is to spam email inboxes, DM on LinkedIn, cold calling, incessant ads, or worse. We've interviewed dozens of the top lead generation companies in the United States. They all do the same thing: Gauge intent (hopefully), build a lead pool of ‘qualified' buyers, then spam, baby, spam them to death. Sigh…

Do you REALLY want to risk your reputation by blasting your dream customers in this way?

Do YOU buy products and services from spammers?

UpMyInfluence.com is disrupting this system for anyone looking to create lots of relationships with their dream customers. Our approach to growing connections and exposure through authority, generosity, and platform is based on what works best: thoughtful human connection. Growing a network of hundreds of high-qualified decision makers will change your life. You'll learn what you need to create the relationships and perceived authority that will grow your business. Our system has been working for hundreds of other UpMyInfluence members. It will work for you.

Success requires authority today

What would happen if you had 10 TIMES the industry authority than you currently do?

I have something to tell you that celebrities and successful entrepreneurs know.

If you want to make business easier, you can't just build a business from behind your keyboard and expect to be recognized. Entrepreneurs need to MAKE their authority happen. We do this work with our members.

Gaining authority is not incredibly difficult – but it takes tools, resources, relationships, and expertise to speed up the process. That's what UpMyInfluence has. We turn entrepreneurs into celebrities within their respective industries. Their authority opens up opportunities to work with very successful leaders. As a result, marketing and attraction of customers feel as though it's on autopilot. New business opportunities regularly happen because of the value of our members' networks.

A vast majority of business owners fail at this – and are potentially missing out on millions in sales because their startup just isn't respected.

How Josh bootstrapped a 7-figure a year business.

Prior to Josh launching SavingsAngel.com, he laid the groundwork by making many friends in the media. Because he knew the rules of working with journalists and other influencers, 18 of 20 outlets he chatted with said YES to helping him launch his company with NO out-of-pocket costs on his end.

Bottom-line: If he didn't get the help from the media, his company would never have gotten off the ground.

This is what fuels us, here at UpMyInfluence. There are countless great ideas and budding entrepreneurs who have what it takes to become successful. The only thing missing is customers and sales. A successful, ongoing platform making it easy to facilitate regular connections to decision makers can solve this at a fraction of the cost of paid advertising.

Why there's never been a better time than now

More than ever before, if you are willing to celebrate others first (Read The Go-Giver Bob Burg or How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie) you can build an unlimited number of relationships with your dream customers!

UpMyInfluence.com is designed to find the right decision makers for you and make it happen faster than most lead generation firms. The secret to high-ticket sales is to not only act as an sales person for your company – but as an expert for your industry as a whole. High authority experts and influencers respect and celebrate other professionals in their space. You could keep shelling out tens of thousands of dollars in ads or make it easy for your dream customers to reach out to you because of your generosity and platform. Our job is to help make this all happen so you can relax and network your way up to super-stardom.

Technology has improved. Business has improved. Access to decision makers has improved. However, many entrepreneurs I've spoken with have expressed frustration with a leadgen industry who has not evolved to meet the needs of the lean startup and ambitious entrepreneurs. We created UpMyInfluence to be the service that we needed for nearly a decade but did not exist.

Be prepared BEFORE reaching out to customers

This part is so critical. I cannot overemphasize how important it is that you are ready before you contact your dream customers. You will be judged based on what you are showing the world in terms of your authority. Sadly, most of your dream customers will never tell you why they chose not to reply to your email or content. But it almost always comes down to what and how you are communicating. You need an experienced eye to help you shine.

As an UpMyInfluence.com member, you'll have the tools to gain the trust of customers, influencers, investors, partners, and beyond. Trust us. They are looking for some very specific things and if you don't have them in place, don't even expect a reply. They don't have time to waste on amateurs. We want to make sure this never happens again.
