Are you suffering from a trickle of leads every month?

To earn more revenue, you need more sales. To earn more sales, you need more conversations with your dream customers.

I guarantee that I can get 10 high-ticket appointments for you every single month... with ZERO paid ads.

I'm Josh Elledge - host of the DAILY podcast, The Thoughtful Entrepreneur. I’ve had 2000+ media appearances. I’m the founder of TWO 7-figure companies. I’ve also done a ton of speaking and podcast guest appearances on what you’re about to learn!

Watch me explain why traditional sales and advertising does not work for high-ticket sales and how you can save 10-20 hours every single week:

I've interviewed more than 900 consultants, agencies, and high-ticket service providers. The number one challenge I hear is...

"We get good word of mouth, and referrals - but we'd like repeatable and predictable sales."

Here's what I've learned after 1000 conversations...

Traditional marketing outreach efforts do not work for high-ticket, account-based marketing.

Your End-To-End Funnel Marketing Solution

Build forms and funnel pages to capture leads, user automated sms, email, phone calls, voicemails, and Facebook Messages to nurture leads through custom pipelines, converse with leads & clients via text, phone, and Facebook Messenger (all in one stream!), and more!

My 1200+ guests have (painfully) shared what DOESN'T work:

  • Sales funnels
  • Webinar automation
  • White papers
  • Bots
  • Gimmicks
  • Ads
  • DMs asking for sales appointments
  • Being phony or manipulative
  • Lead-gen services
  • Low-key selling or self-promotion on social
  • Cold email spam
  • Being salesy
  • Content that nobody engages with

If you sell high-ticket ($5,000+ customer lifetime value), there is an UNLIMITED number of VERY qualified clients that will work with you.


There are just three problems:

  • You are currently invisible to your most qualified leads.


  • The most qualified leads are too busy to reply to your cold outreach and advertising.


  • The most qualified leads are too busy to jump into your sales funnel.


In 2007, I launched a 7-figure a year company that has allowed me to study and lead on consumer behavior for nearly 15 years.


Your potential customers are ALL consumers. Old-school sales gimmicks and marketing methods no longer work like they did 5-10 years ago...


Sound familiar? How do YOU feel when people use manipulative or robotic tactics on you?

Yes! You should absolutely use systems - but you've been taught to use them all wrong!

"Gooroos" will tell you to automate everything for passive money. They are dead wrong when it comes to higher-ticket offers. Front-end automation systems do not work. You will REALLY annoy key decision-makers who don't have time for being sold at by your systems.


Here's the deal: Do you really have the time to devote your full attention to 10+ new introductions each week?


I'll teach you how you and your team can work together to truly nurture a high-level relationship like you should!

Where do all these 'leads' come from then??

Can I share something that may blow your mind if you've been living in scarcity for any length of time?


There is an ENDLESS number of potential customers for you. They just don't want to click on your ads. They know what you are doing when you are spending hours a week on social media trying to 'drum up' business.


You've likely met your best clients at events where you can meet organically - and through just being a cool friend with others.


We simply need to scale that activity without you spending all your time doing CEO sales-hustle work.


No... seriously stop. It's embarrassing when you're always in 'sales mode' online. There's a MUCH better way.

A bit about what's possible...

  • I speak with 10-15 new potential customers every single week. These are warmed-up decision-makers - not cold leads.


  • I am always booked out a minimum of 8-10 weeks in advance.


  • Yes... That means I nearly always have 80+ potential customers in my queue... eager to chat with me.


  • I do business with roughly 25% of those 15 each week. Whether we do business or not, I am building relationships - not prospects.

Here's what your week could look like IF you ever wanted to open the flood gates on sales with our system. Dark blue is high-ticket sales-related.

Here's what our clients have to say...

All are 6 to 9-figure business owners.

You are 30-days away from endless high-ticket customers with no paid ads with the...

Frequently Asked Questions:


Am I a good fit for you?

We evaluate our concierge partners in 6 areas:


☑️ Culture fit. We don't work with sales funnel sharks. You need to be committed to relationship-first sales.


☑️ Do you have a high-value offer that would support our model? Our clients have offers that run $5000-$250,000. If your don't currently have a high-value offer, we can help build one through our done-with-you coaching program.


☑️ Your current sales conversion rate.


☑️ Your online authority.


☑️ Your ability to scale.


☑️ Our confidence in attracting your customer avatar.


Will this work for my offer?

It may – or may not. Let's chat. Our partners typically offer larger-ticket B2B products/services. We generally look for offers with a lifetime value of $5000 or more.


We've worked with MANY professional services, coaches, consultants, mastermind facilitators, platforms, SAAS tools, real estate mentors and services, financial advisors, attorneys, developers, doctors, companies seeking investors, industry solutions, manufacturers, and companies seeking strategic partners of their own.


Will this work for my ideal customers?

Do your dream clients see you as an annoying PEST with your advertising, cold calls, emails, & DMs? How would you like to be their welcomed GUEST? Our partners aim for decision-makers with successful companies – or clients that are fairly resistant to ads.


This is where I get on my soapbox a bit – but we are in the midst of the marketing apocalypse – particularly if you want to communicate with a sophisticated, busy audience. They don't want your salesy email drip campaigns. They don't have time for white papers and webinars. Maybe they'll consume your content, but the world is SWIMMING in content! It's a simple fact: Today's leaders do business with people they have relationships with.


If you're just seen as a vendor/someone trying to sell them… good luck. That's why most ‘leadgen' services are awful.


☑️ You need AUTHORITY. Your customers are judging you… harshly.


☑️ You need a PLATFORM. Stop inviting people to sales calls. It just doesn’t work anymore.


☑️ You need to GIVE FIRST. Generosity is the key to authentic relationships.


Partnering with UpMyInfluence is the key to forming ten or more high-value relationships every month; Relationships that will last a lifetime; Relationships that will lead to networking unlike anything you've likely experienced; Relationships that will lead to all the business you and your company can handle.


You simply need to be talking to more qualified customers – who have the ability to pay and desire to pay. We'll create the processes which will fill your schedule with these new relationships.


How much time will this take me/my team?

All of our concierge partners are busy running their companies. That's why this is a concierge-level, done-for-you system. If you and your team have more schedule availability, you might consider our done-with-you coaching program.


Our first step is a single 1-hour onboarding call. We'll also need to gather several resources from you. We'll be asking for content we can share with your future high-level customers, and they can get to know you virtually. The truth is… you are likely spending too much time doing ‘CEO hustle' work. (Watch my video above titled: Recover 10-20 hours a week as a high-ticket B2B CEO.) Spending hours on content creation is great for attracting entry-level customers. It's poor, time-consuming strategy for high-ticket clients until they REALLY want to know you. That's our job.


All told, during the build-out phase, I would plan on allocating 1-2 hours weekly for the first 4 weeks from either you or your team. This is a one-time job which we will provide leadership on. After we're launched, you may want to ease off on all the stuff you are doing to drum up business. We'll partner for life – bringing you great high-level intros week after week!


After we launch, we'll find, vet, and nurture your dream high-level customers week after week. You just need to show up for our introductions and interview them with the script we provide. Then, just follow-up. Our system couldn't be any easier.


If you are currently overwhelmed in your business, you may be a couple of months away from getting your life back.

Why is leveraging platform good for business?

I could spend an hour on this subject alone – and have spoken at many conferences about how my life has been changed with platform – like social media, podcasts, video, etc… Here are a few benefits:


☑️ Building a relationship with nearly anyone you want is one invite away.


☑️ In a single 20-min conversation, you can create more than 40 pieces of content.


☑️ Grow an audience in dozens of podcast directories, youtube, and all the socials.


☑️ Become a center of influence in your industry just from interviewing others!


☑️ Get some SERIOUSLY GREAT SEO love back from all those backlinks – every single week including backlinks from Audible, Spotify, IMDB, Apple, Pandora, IHeartRadio, and dozens more high-authority domains.


☑️ You will get regular opportunities to perfect your own message.


☑️ You will learn a LOT by asking for advice you really want to know.


☑️ Invite top-level guests and get customers.


☑️ Invite top-level guests and get partnership opportunities.


☑️ Invite top-level guests and network your way to the top.


☑️ Invite top-level guests and get speaking opportunities.


As our partner, you will get all this value – and we'll do all the heavy-lifting.


How do you get the leads?

Leadgen is the easiest aspect of what we do. There is a seemingly infinite number of potential customers available. Where marketers typically screw this up is they start selling right away to REAL people – which makes any leadgen service worthless. How do you respond to people who spam you with ads, DMs, calls, cold email? Our job is to get your dream clients to fall in love with you. That's our specialty. We will create authentic relationships – led by your give-first proprietary systems.


We have a huge roster of contacts and over 130K on social. We have big databases of PR contact that will assist us - and many key relationships/ When you launch, we will promote you at no additional charge. This will start the engine!


Ongoing, we can either personally facilitate the high-level intros as an optional upgrade. Or, you can as you and your team follow our proven, guaranteed systems. We will provide the leadership, support on your simple weekly and monthly outreach items for your VA to ensure that you are gaining 10+ intros monthly. If I can chat with 40+ a month for 2+ years, you can get 10+.


Who am I working with?

Your account manager/SDR holds the keys to the kingdom! She or he will be your pointperson – and will connect you with (or gather resources from) our full team of experts – which include sales & marketing strategists, copywriters, video production, integration experts, podcast hosts, developers, and designers. You'll have instant access to your account manager and others in our shared Slack channel. You'll also likely have 2-3 Zoom calls with them during the build-out phase and then monthly for our plan/do/reviews.


Josh, Alissa, Jite, Kimberly, or others will provide your higher-level strategy and coaching. You'll likely meet 2-3 times with either/both of them during the build-out phase – and then monthly for our plan/do/reviews.


Will I get to connect with your other partners?

We have more than 100 amazing concierge partners. We break out into high-level ‘sales mastery' masterminds 1-2 times monthly. All concierge partners are required to be earning 6-7 figures annually in business. No more guessing with your sales systems in a silo'd environment. We'd love for you to join us. It's pretty amazing to learn from each other.


This private community (NOT a facebook group) is free to participate (for life) when you join us. This includes your team.


How do we get the leads?

Leadgen is the simplest aspect of what you'll do when you follow our weekly and monthly action plans. There is a seemingly infinite number of potential customers available. Where marketers typically screw this up is they start selling right away to REAL people – which makes any leadgen service worthless. How do you respond to people who spam you with ads, DMs, calls, cold email? Our mission is to get your dream clients to fall in love with you. That's our specialty. Your new system will create authentic relationships – led by our give-first proprietary systems.


We have a huge roster of contacts and over 130K on social. We have big databases of PR contacts that will assist us - and many key relationships. We will be actively promoting you as part of your 16-week program. Our job is to get the momentum so that you'll always have folks booking for the rest of the life of your business.


After the 16-weeks, we can either personally facilitate high-level intros as an optional upgrade. (Seriously... It's totally optional). Or, you and your team follow our proven, guaranteed systems. We will provide the leadership, support on your simple weekly and monthly outreach items for your VA to ensure that you are gaining 10+ intros monthly. If you ever drop below, 10 in a month, reach out. We'll find a way to fix it.


If I can chat with 40+ a month for 2+ years, you can get 10+.


How quickly can we make sales?

If you are building relationships with 10 or more qualified, nurtured introductions a month, how many would you normally close? How long would that normally take? Getting you talking with more highly qualified decision makers is job #1. That's baked in to our system. It's also baked into our system to build up their familiarity bias with you. Essentially, we want them to feel like they already know you when they talk with you for the first time. This will speed up the process.


What do you think my ROI is?

Because we are employing a relationship-first approach, this is the best way to answer that question


Imagine you are at a conference and you walk into a room full of your dream clients (who meet your ideal customer persona). You are able to have a meaningful, personal conversation with each of them. What percentage would you suppose would end up doing business with you? That should give you an idea of your numbers.


A 20% conversion rate is pretty reasonable. If you are chatting with 10 new amazingly qualified people every month, just work the math backward on your new sales revenue. Yes – you can absolutely grow more than ten a month. (I chat with 45/mo). Let's do the math on our call!


What happens if I don’t like this?

It is absolutely critical that we have a great working relationship together. We'd count on you to be coachable. Likewise, we hope you'll always love the direction that we will take your sales and the manner in which we provide that help. If either of us doesn't feel great about the relationship, we'll part ways. We will refund your investment if we find it's not working within the first 30-days.


This being said, like any investor, we typically vet our partners pretty well. We will internally validate your offer/product/service (see Am I a good fit for you? above) – and may have some suggestions for increasing conversion and profit-margin. We are also very sensitive to culture fit, and will not move forward with anyone we see as a shark. If you see your customers as strictly numbers or dollars, I can tell you already that it's not a fit. We LOVE working with thoughtful leaders committed to making a positive impact in the world.


Alright... What's the investment?

We've set our pricing to follow a trend of value/outcome-based focus for our concierge partners. Our ambition is to minimize risk, max-out positive ROI for you, and make this a no-brainer for you in terms of calculated value we generate. Let's chat. We'll run some numbers and make sure it's a win-win.

Let's chat to make sure we're a good fit!
