Our Guest: Mike Arce, the CEO, and Founder of Loud Rumor

At times, getting clients for your agency can be a challenge. We invest our time in developing funnels, social media marketing, and retargeting. Despite these efforts, we end up generating a few leads.

Other times we focus on selling our services or products to everyone. We believe in carrying our eggs on different baskets. Even with this approach, hitting a six-figure profit remains a nightmare.

In this episode, Mike Arce opens up to us on the secret behind his success in fitness marketing. Arce shares the power behind cold calling and niching as well as practical lessons for transforming your agency business.

Magical Marketing Quotes from our Guest

“It is so much easier to sell to a niche than it is to sell to abroad.”

“People love to buy, but they hate to be sold.”

“The reason people might be going is because you’re thinking about how you do what I do. What you should be thinking is what could I do that nobody’s doing?”

“I’ve learned that you might not always realize what was the cause of the flop immediately, but maybe somewhere down the line.”

“You have to pick a niche that you can stay with consistently for a long time and be passionate about.”

“People like to be sold, they just don’t like to be sold garbage.”
