Master Class: Connect with Influencers – with Steve Sims
Steve Sims is the founder of Bluefish, a paid, membership concierge firm. He’s helped his clients get on stage with their favorite rock stars, dive down to the Titanic, and set up a table for 6 in Florence at the foot of Michaelagelo’s David.
Reach world-famous influencers for the price of a postage stamp.
Usually when people say they can reach influencers, they mean their favorite blogger or someone who’s Internet-famous.
But what if you want to reach world-famous influencers like Richard Branson, Donald Trump, and Steve Forbes?
And what if you then want to make them your clients?
That’s exactly what Steve Sims, founder of Bluefish and author of 7 Ugly Truths: The Things I’ve Learned in My Life So Far, does every single day. So we invited him to Mixergy to teach us how to do it, too.
And the best part is, this works even if you’re not a natural. And even if you aren’t very well-connected.
After all, that’s where Steve started out, too. “I come from a construction family,” he says. “I think we aspired to be middle class.”
In the full course, you’ll discover:
- Steve’s attention-grabbing system for making initial contact with top influencers (it even got the Vatican to say yes to his crazy request!)
- How Steve lost his company, then bought it back and grew it to multi-millions, all because of the way he builds relationships
- Why sending perfect emails and beautiful videos will KILL your chances of working with A-list clients (and what to do instead)
- What Steve sends his super wealthy clients that gets them to pick up the phone and call him (hint: it costs one postage stamp)
- and much more!
One part that really stood out: How Steve gets a 100% hit rate using snail mail to reach world-famous influencers.
Here’s an excerpt on that, from the full course:
Steve: I may do 100 envelopes on the plane tomorrow. But I guarantee you over the next two weeks, I’ll have 100 conversations and out of those 100 conversations, probably about 20% will go, “We forgot to speak to you…we need to go and do this thing or we need to go and do whatever.” Great. Well, I’m glad it clicked something. So, let’s get it going.
