Closed your first client?


Let's talk about how to RETAIN a client

Here are the 10 commandments to keeping a client


Before we start

Let's make a deal

- You RT the first tweet
- I'll drop another one of these (with content you'd pay hundreds for)


Let's go
1) Build a genuine friendship.

People mess up by trying to keep it all about business.

What are their pains, dreams, plans? You should know.


- A service is replaceable

- A friendship is not
2) Keep a reporting system

(homage @wizofecom)

Your clients should know where they are now vs where they were before

Keep a report of their growth

Update them bi-weekly
3) Communication.

Communication is 🔑

You should be communicating with your clients daily

- What you intend for the day

- What you have done

Your clients need to understand that you're on top of it
4) Be blunt.

You’re the expert

They aren’t paying you to be a yes man.

They’re paying you for results

If you think their idea is bad?

Tell them exactly why

Then give them a solution
5) Own it all.

Your clients hate complaining and excuses

F*cked up?

Own it

They'll respect you for it
6) Keep your word

If you said you'd do something?

It must be done

Move Heaven and earth if you must.
7) The vision

Remind your clients of where they're going

If your client hit $10,000 a month? Remind them that $20,000 is next

If your client hit 1000 followers? Remind them that 2000 is next

They need to be looking forward to the next milestone
8) Results

Results are the base of a long-lasting relationship

It's great if you're friends

But if you're not providing results?

Your client won't stick around

Nobody wants to pay to get nothing in return
9) The extra-mile

If you promised X, your client expects X

What if you deliver 2x? 3x?

This will make you stand out

Almost nobody does this

People will do just enough to get paid

Want to stand out? Go the extra-mile
10) Growth

If your client sees that you're providing increasingly better results, they'll keep you around (and pay you more)

People don't like to do business with people that are stagnant.

-Try new things
-Study your craft

It's a win-win for everybody
Final thoughts:

-You don't have to implement ALL of those

-But you must implement SOME of those

Don't be the freelancer that can't get a client for more than 1 month

You're better than that

❌ Hiring Anyone

❌ Having “Business” Relationships

Retweet this one…


First off, business nowadays isn’t natural.

It started off with you give me X and I’ll give you Y


But it’s turned into...
An overcomplicated marketplace where communication is becoming harder and harder.

Most people are now writing pages of nonsense to “sell” people.

Billions are spent on psychological tricks and tactics to “sell” people.

But the simple ways are FAR from over...

That will make you 6 figs.

This knowledge took me years to build.

I shouldn't be giving it away for free, but I’m certain a few of you reading this will put it to use.

All that I ask from you is that you RT the first tweet.

Fair enough?


Let's dive right in.
1) Don't be a Graphic Designer, Copywriter, App designer expert.

When a CEO sees that you do 5 things, he assumes you're an amateur.

You won't get hired.

When a CEO sees that you only do one thing, he assumes you're a pro.

You will get hired.

How to Recalibrate your environment and virtually guarantee success without even trying

From a guy who went from fat & broke to earning a good living while traveling the world.

> The 3 Origins of Mass Programing
> 2 Practical ways to brainwash yourself

//Thread// ImageImage
Quick PSA:

This thread contains knowledge that took me 5+ years of trial & error and tons of success and failure to learn.

I should charge $100s for this but I'm giving you the juice for free.

All I ask is for you to click the 🔁 button 👆👆.

Thank you

Let's begin...

You're being brainwashed every second of every day whether you like it or not.

It begins the moment you wake up.

From your Twitter feed to the convo with your co-worker to your favorite Netflix show.

This is not *always* a bad thing.

But it's not good...

Everything You Need to Know to Make Your First $ Online

I made my first piece of money online back in 2015.

Since then?

I’ve built up a full-time income using the internet completely.

This thread should get you started the right way, and also set you up so you don’t burn out when you’re making bank.
1) Information Overload

We see all these gurus giving advice.

But often they contradict each other and cram too much in your brain.

Trying to follow ALL advice slows you down when working, or straight up stops you.

Choose one or two experts and stick to their advice.
