I was recently able to sit down and chat with Reinis Krumins who is the CEO of Sprelf, to discuss how he was able to get to where he is at today. Here is what he had to say:
In your own words, what’s your story Reinis? How did you get to where you are today?
Since I was a child I’ve always wanted to make money. When I was 13 I started mowing lawns for a quick buck. Then later when I was home I did graphic design for some COD sniping clans. I didn’t earn much at the time, but it showed me the possibility of earning money online even as a teenager.
I had to work online since I realized no one would hire me at that young of an age, so I had to make a job for myself.
Graphic design also showed me the social media realm. I had the honor to talk to many people who had racked up tens of thousands of followers. As I grew older, I became a fitness influencer and managed to gain 13,000+ followers.
At around the same time, I thought to myself “What if I was able to do the same for businesses – they would be able to pay me good money for this”
Wow! 13,000 followers is quite an audience! What happened next? What did you learn from that?
Then with my already honed and tested skills, I started sales and marketing on a larger scale. At first, my sales skills weren’t good enough, so it was hard for me to acquire clients. After getting a sales mentor, I became extremely comfortable with sales even as a young 17 year old.
I approached larger businesses such as Bose, and I even landed a meeting and got contacts in there. I loved the work, but it started to get super repetitive. I used to wake up at 8AM, start calls from 9AM to 11AM, then go to meetings so on and so forth.
This led to me thinking of other strategies to acquire clients, so I started testing out a couple of lead generation strategies. Starting from networking all the way up to large scale personal branding.
This led me to creating a unique sales method with utilizing strategic content distribution to get clients coming to me.
This led me to literally having clients come to me. This has allowed me to close 3 deals worth $18,000 in the past 3 weeks.
Slowly, I am testing its power on others and so far it’s working extremely well, since a couple of my students have been able to land 3-7 meetings with High ticket prospects on a weekly basis.
I’ve even helped one student to scale from $400/mo all the way up to $10,191. These results aren’t typical and they do take work. However, it feels like I’ve stumbled upon a golden strategy of outreach. That lands easy-to close clients.
Thanks for sharing your incredible story Reinis! Do you have any last words of advice for readers?
From 2019 on, focus on your product and it’s strategic distribution, since the landscape is changing. 3 Years ago, everyone could run random ads all over social media and succeed, now the landscape is different, only the people whose content and products are good will win. Focus on your value and how it impacts others.
