How to Create Consistent Sales Without the Desperation of 'Lead Generation'

Here is the Proven Strategy That's Made Us 100% Inbound for Over 4 Years—And How We've Replicated It for 200+ Leaders.

You Already Have the Authority - Stop Competing with Amateurs

In the world of B2B, true leaders aren't sifting through ads and their spam folders.📭 They're engaging where leaders naturally go... stages, media, and other areas where they can make an impact and grow their company.🌟

Redefine Engagement: Celebrate Success, Not Spam

Discover a space where meaningful connections are forged in appreciation of mutual success and respect, far from the typical marketing fray.

Stop Chasing Leads - Collaborate with Leaders Instead

Traditional sales tactics fall short for high-ticket engagements. Why not leverage your own stage and invite the greatest connections into your world... the kinds of leaders you want to do business with?

Lead generation platforms & tactics are a vast wasteland.

In this 7 minute video, I'll reveal my insights collected from over 1,800 leaders on my podcast on what true professionals do to scale business today.🎙️

Hi, I'm Josh Elledge, your ally in redefining B2B connections for consistent, predictable growth. With nearly 2,000 episodes of The Thoughtful Entrepreneur under my belt and over 2,500 media appearances, I've mastered the art of turning visibility into genuine influence.

My work with 200+ concierge clients has paved a proven path for leaders like you, seeking to amplify their authority and business growth. 🌟

While word-of-mouth introductions and referrals are invaluable, the real treasure lies in securing a stream of consistent and predictable sales.

Your Network Defines Your Success

The old saying has never been truer: your network genuinely is your net worth. 🌟 For founders, CEOs, or directors of sales/growth, your #1 job is to Grow your company and impact in the world.

✅ The fastest way to dramatically increase your impact and scale your company is through building lots of high-value relationships.

The Challenge: Consistent & Predictable Conversations with your ideal connections

So, the burning question remains: How do you stand out and connect consistently in today's B2B world? 🤔

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!

What No Longer Works: A Candid Revelation from 1800+ B2B Leaders 🚫

My 1800+ guests have (painfully) shared the outdated tactics that fail to deliver today for larger ticket engagements:

  • Sales Funnels leading nowhere

  • Webinar Automation that lacks engagement

  • White Papers that gather digital dust

  • Bots & Gimmicks that irritate more than innovate

  • Ads & DMs for Sales Appointments that miss the mark

  • Phony or Manipulative Tactics that destroy trust

  • Lead-gen Services & Low-key Social Selling that fall flat (Gross.)🤮

  • Cold Email Spam & Salesy Content that everyone ignores

🔄 Sure. It's easy to get appointments with unqualified 'leads' through these popular but ineffective tactics.

You and I both know... this is an exhausting waste of time for us as leaders.

The only way to consistently attract VIP decision makers

The Three Core Problems Blocking Connections With Your Ideal Client/Partner 🚧

  1. Invisibility: You are currently invisible to your most qualified leaders in their busy lives.

  2. Unreachability: The most qualified leaders are too busy to reply to your cold outreach and advertising.

  3. Resistance: The most qualified leaders are too busy to jump into anything resembling a 'sales funnel.'

🤖 Quite frankly... spammy, salesy outreach is beneath you.

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

What Works: Lead with Generosity & Authenticity 🌟

When you truly embody these values, connections are effortless. You'll find yourself swiftly engaging in meaningful transactions with like-minded leaders within your own 'Whisper Network.'

What Exactly is a 'Whisper Network'? 🤫

A 'Whisper Network' is where experienced business leaders quietly forge bonds with their peers in spaces reserved for the elite — be it VIP speaker lounges, secluded side rooms, private conversations over Zoom, or through personal, high-trust referrals.

This network isn't flashy or overtly salesy. It's about the simple yet profound connection between great 'business adults' who share similar values and energies.

Why a 'Whisper Network' Works:

Trust & Respect: Engaging with others who value integrity.

Quality over Quantity: Focusing on the depth of connections rather than the number.

Mutual Benefit: Naturally creating opportunities where everyone wins.

Embrace the Power of Subtle Influence🌟

Engage in a network that transcends the traditional, transactional business networking approach. 🤗 By leading with generosity and authenticity, you pave the way for relationships that are not only more rewarding but also more likely to yield long-term success.

Where do all these high-level introductions 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 don't want your DMs. They don't want your cold email.

Leaders know what you are doing when you are spending hours a week on social media trying to 'drum up' business. It feels... desperate.

You've likely met many of your best clients organically - and through just being a good friend with others.

To drive revenue and impact, we simply need to scale that activity without you spending all your time doing creepy stalking.

No... seriously stop. There's a MUCH better way.

Attract Your Ideal Connections. 🤝 Stop Chasing. 🛑
