In this week’s episode of the Extra Paycheck Podcast I am joined by an entrepreneur and co-founder of NinjaOutreach, Mark Samms.
Mark Samms is an amazing salesman. At one point he realized he was bringing in around £500,000 pounds in sales for his employer. This is when Mark decided to do the same but for his own company. Since “software” and “SaaS” (software as a service) were the buzzwords he decided to build his own software. Mark found a business partner and they launched their own service.
However, the service was heavily reliant on other platforms such as YouTube. When these platforms changed their terms of service, Mark’s software became obsolete overnight which caused several charge-backs and a quickly decreasing bank account. Many would give up at this point but Mark knew this couldn’t be the end.
After a little while Mark started his new service, Ninja Outreach with a new business partner, David Schneider.
NinjaOutreach is an influencer marketing platform that helps people just like you and I to find influencers in the industries of interest. Besides finding such influencers the platforms also helps us get in touch with them and much more.
What exactly is influencer outreach and why every entrepreneur needs it? As you grow your business you’ll realize you need to connect with people in order to grow it faster. You might need an expert’s opinion, or simply someone who will share your blog post or maybe even a new investor. It’s all explained in great detail in this episode.
In late 2015 David Schneider was a guest on this very podcast. The company was doing $10,000-$13,000 in recurring income per month. In March of this year they were earning over $50k per month and the goal is to reach $83,000+ by the end of the year. This would mean $1,000,000 per year in recurring income which is amazing.
Mark shares a lot of revealing experiences and many helpful strategies. For example how to contact influencers with the lowest chance of rejection and that ONE mistake that you should never make when reaching out to others. I am not going to spoil the episode so scroll up and press that PLAY button.
