By April

In episode 134 of the weekly Hump Day Hangouts by Semantic Mastery, one viewer asked about the keywords needed for the link building package in Serp Space.

The exact question was:

Hi There SM Mastery Team – Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer my question(s). For your back linking package (to push life to a recently built branded syndication network) – it says to come up with a minimum of 200 keywords OR you can do it for $20. If we are to do this, what they of keywords are you looking for? Branded, LSI, Money or all of the aforementioned? What is the typical turnaround time for a small link building exercise (3500 Web 2.0s) to be complete?

What Are Some Possible Reasons Why A Verified GMB Listing Doesn’t Appear In Search Results For The Key Term?

By April

In episode 134 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked about possible reasons why a verified GMB listing for a dentist doesn't appear in search results for ‘dentist’ but is shown in results for ‘orthodontist’.

The exact question was:

Thanks for the always awesome content!
My question is about MAPs.

I have a client – dentist – that have a GMB verified, his real place. It was showing for terms like “”orthodontist”” and some others, but NEVER for dentist!
Then I deleted other categories, like orthodontist and let only dentist. Now don't show to orthodontist too.

I click on the arrow to see more places and even going on page 3 of map results it isn't there.
Appears only if I search for their name.
Should I delete this one and start another GMB?

Best Practices When Conversing With Lead Gen Prospects Through Cold Calling

By April

In the 134th episode of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked for tips for conversing with lead gen prospects via phone calls. Tips for how to deal with rejections and moving on to different prospects were also discussed.

The exact question was:

Hi Bradley, I have an client closing question.

I know you love to use vmail prospecting to get your lead gen client. However, the area that I do leadgen in a lot of them doesn't have email, so I have to do cold calling.

I manage to get past the gatekeeper but my conversation with the owner is short. That sucks…

So if you are able to get the owner to the phone. How exactly will carry on the conversation without him knowing you in the first place.

Do you talk to him from (I am your competitor, now I have too much leads unable to service. May I forward some leads to you) perspective

Or do you talk to him from (I am a marketer currently have a website that is generating leads but need a contractor to service them”” perspective)

I have tried the 2nd option because I want to be honest but didn't find much success.

But if I go for the 1st option, I was afraid I set the wrong frame for the business owner where he thought his competitor is sending him leads FREE because they cannot service them and freak out when he found that he needs to pay them.

I hate the go for the 1st option route where I am pretending that I am his competitor because it is so easy to set the wrong frame. I don't want to explain to him that I am actually a leadgen company pretending to be hid competitor when he sees the company name on the bill is WSK Consultancy, a marketing firm name

Bradley assume you got past the gatekeeper and the owner say “”hello””.. How do you carry on this conversation with him without setting the wrong frame which leads to disappointment?

Can you do roleplay with Hernan where you are on the phone with the prospect(Hernan) to demonstrate to us how you carry the conversation with the business owner.

2) Do you offer an x amount of free leads to the client before start charging them?

When allowing SERP Space to create your single tier 1 syndication, do they create and set up each account, or would I have to do that? And if they do it, can I supply the accounts that I want to use that I have already created? I'm just trying to get a grip on the concept.

Do You Need An Associated Website For A YouTube Channel?

By April

In episode 133 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked whether an associated website for a Youtube channel is necessary.

The exact question was:

My established website has an empty Youtube channel as part of its existing branded syndication network. I went through your YT Mastery course and will now be adding a lot of videos and am wondering about the companion website you discussed. Is a companion website needed in my situation or is that only used when the YT is the primary focus and there is no related website already in place? I don’t mind having both if adding a companion YT website is beneficial.
