Affiliate Disclosure: Look, I'm working my ass off delivering value to you. So, yes any links that you see in this post are probably affiliate links to help keep this blog going. They are true recommendations and if you click on them and purchase, I probably earn a commission (at no additional cost to you).
You also have to pay annually for most of the software & hosting.
Plus, you will need the more expensive hosting as you have many heavy plugins.
Personally, I prefer Kartra, but feel free to go down this route if you want to.
Example Of One Of My Current Drop Servicing Funnels (Important!)
Here is an example of one of my current drop servicing funnels. You can’t see the domain, because else you can see where I am advertising with certain tools. I don’t want to drive the competition up as it’s working pretty well right now.
The example below is with an extremely basic Kartra templateand it converts so well.
I can buy this service for $30-$150 per month. Then I just use paid ads to advertise this exact funnel. Even if I spend a $200 on getting a couple of trials, I am super-profitable.
Do you see how powerful this is?
I also have an email pop-up that offers a 7 day trial for the same price that I buy the service for. This pop up doubles my conversions. And, I get their email address.
I then use my Kartra follow-up to send them a custom email that contains a link to the 7-day offer.
How I Make Even More Money Drop Servicing
Once, I have the business as a customer, I don’t stop there. I go and research their businesses and see what other social platforms they are on. It may be Pinterest, Facebook, or Instagram. Then I find another freelancer who offers a management service.
Then, I send them another page in a follow-up, but with a discount code. I still make $150+ p/m additionally. And, you can do this with every customer!
Creating Your Drop Servicing Sales Funnel
Taking action is the first step to success. So, go and start creating your sales funnel right now!
Your sales funnel should:
Collect Emails (so you can sell repeatedly)
Include Order-Bumps & One-Click Upsells
As I mentioned earlier, I recommend you use Kartra because that’s what I use. However, feel free to go with the other options.
In the Kartra templates, go to the “long sales pages”. These convert like crazy. You need to edit them a lot & make them unique to what you are offering. I use the dark blue and yellow template in the image below a lot and just leave the colors as they look professional and convert well.
Step 3: Promoting Your Drop Servicing Business
Did you create your drop servicing business?
Yes? Congratulations, you have a business.
No? Go back and do it. If you don’t take action, nothing will happen.
How To Promote Your Drop Servicing Business
You are charging high prices, right?
The people you meet in your local supermarket are not going to pay those prices. You need to advertise to people who need your service. How do we know if somebody needs your service? They are looking for it.
Luckily, with Google ads, you can advertise your business right there. Additionally, if you think you know a place where you could advertise instead, feel free to do so. For example, if your service is Pinterest managing, you could maybe advertise on Pinterest.
Setting Up Google Ads
To make things easier, I linked a brilliant Google ads tutorial below.
There are also some keywords to target below the video. You’re welcome 😉
Here are some keywords that you could consider:
High Quality (service)
Keyword + free is looking for a free version so avoid this.
Again, do this now.
The sooner you get started, the bigger your advantage.
