From $0 to $75K MRR with 0 marketing budget

Today's hack
2nd-3rd follow up emails boosted conversions by 60-100%! [study]

Sergei Gusev recently shared his awesome story on how he went from $0 to $75,000 MRR in1.5 years with zero marketing budget.

His startup Scentbird is a subscription service that offers a 30-day supply of a designer fragrance every month for just $14.95.

Here is his exact growth hacking plan from $0 to $75,000 MRR:

1. Search on YouTube “perfume reviews” & “[competitors or substitutes] reviews.”

2. Write down all influencers in a spreadsheet.

3. Reach out to the Influencers and offer a free product. Interesting statistics here: around 30% of the influencers reply to the first email. Approximately 20%-30% replied to his second or third email. This means that 2nd-3rd follow up emails boosted conversions by 60-100%!

4. Create a unique coupon code or/and a unique link with a coupon code for each influencer to track conversions. And ask them to put your link above the fold.

5. Watch as $75,000 comes to your bank account every month. ;)
