    Hey,

    You just pay per booked appointment that shows up & there is no set-up fee with our company.

    I know you just read this message and are probably hesitant to believe it.

    So to be clear, you are getting SHOWED appointments for just 135 each with no upfront expense.

    The sole reason we couldn’t help you is if you don’t meet any of the following requirements:

    – B2B business
    – 7 figure+ business
    – You serve a wide variety of clients (not niched down in an industry)
    – Have a unique value proposition
    – Be able to take on 50 additional appoints each month (bare minimum)

    I originally reached out because I believe you qualify for these, but let me know if I’m incorrect as we wouldn’t be able to produce results then.

    If these are true for your company, It’d be awesome to have a quick chat here to see how we can help:

    Are you available to come on a podcast as a guest?

    If so, our firm will book you on a podcast within one week.

    If you’re available to do this, I’d also like to repurpose the content from your podcast to provide you and your business, online article features, and video content for social media.

    Placing you on podcasts does require an expense, but the online media features and the repurposed video content we will provide completely on us because this is our first time working together :).

    We are doing this for the first 10 people who reply back to us who qualify because it takes up a good amount of our team’s time.

    The one thing I ask is that you tell me if your business is NOT doing 7+ figures.

    I reached out to you because I think you have a 7+ figure business. Most of the hosts that we have connections with are looking for 7+ figure business owners to interview.

    I want to make sure we don’t lie to them so let me know if you are not.

    So, if you qualify, and want to be booked on a podcast you can chat with our Co-Founder here:
