Bonus: 5 Plug-and-Play Emails to cold pitch emails
Sending “influencer emails” to pitch your business can be a challenge, and the right emails can make the difference. I want you to get “Yes’s” from influencers, and avoid the “No’s.” These emails will be my drag and drop emails that work and are proven for influencers. These emails will get you the meetings that you crave. You will position yourself like the champ that you are.

Bonus: Influencer email pitch email feedback from me
You’ll get two strategic email sessions with me on your cold influencer pitches. We will craft them together via email. I can’t stand when people send-out bad pitches. As a podcaster, it breaks my heart when people don’t pitch well. Email is the 100% best channel to cold pitch influencers, and I want to help you along the way.

Bonus: Build Your Network Now​ Module
Your network is your currency in 2018. I’ll share three videos on how to-do three things to accelerate your business leads. 1) You’ll learn how to do killer email introductions. I want to help you grow your network through connecting others. 2) You’ll learn how to give before you get, and solve problems for people. This will also help to grow your network. 3) You’ll understand how to leverage LinkedIn to connect with your weak ties, people who are your acquaintances. I’ll provide you the methods for staying in touch with people for weeks, months and years.

What is an influencer and how will this program help me?

I define an influencer as someone who leads a movement based on the passion and loyal support of their niche community. INFLUENCER ≠ FOLLOWERS. Seemingly overnight, influencers can inspire a smaller project into a world-changing idea. Influence is not something you are born with—it’s a learned and acquired skill. And like most things, one’s influence can be honed and crafted over time. You cannot buy influence, you have to earn it.

In this course, you will learn how to build your community & collaborate with influencers based on proven methods. We’ll help you to pick a launch (or re-launch) date for your business, working backwards to prioritize launch goals. And I’ll teach you to define your big brand vision and marry it with your longer-term influencer collaboration strategy. You will define your niche for your idea, community and ultimately your influencer collaborators.

What you’ll gain:

* Learn how to find your “Badass Stories,” around emotion, authority, and case studies
* Build an early adopter roadmap to find new customers and opportunities
* Craft and write influencer outreach templates to build meaningful connections with industry “thought-leaders”
* Write your brand statement one-pager to deliver to new and potential clients
* Structure 30-day execution roadmap to share your brand vision to the world​
* Find more purpose when selling your work to clients and customers
* Book yourself as a podcast guest and public speaker

You’ll also display your own professional expertise to discover how you are the best at what you do. You’ll learn how to present and NOT pitch your story, while telling the right story, for the right room. Using the ABE Framework (Authority, Business, Emotional), you’ll avoid giving elevator pitches. You’ll learn to use metaphors and visual examples to present your big brand vision.

In order to build powerful relationships, I created my own story-telling framework. I’d love to teach you how you’ll have different stories for different rooms. Everyone has a story to tell. And if you’re an introvert, this is for you.

Here’s Dr. Brad Wolf, a former course participant, sharing his experience working with Ryan:

Here are former student’s words:

Ryan is an Influencer genius. I read his book, which opened my eyes to the world of influencers, influence, and the power of collab, then actualized that information in his pilot online course along with half a dozen other fantastically thoughtful, creative, and enthusiastic participant-collaborators. -Simon Maskel, Advertising Executive and Entrepreneur


“For me, helping others along their own journeys always helps me with my own. The community and vulnerability we all shared while working toward our respective goals was really powerful and helped me immensely. Since I work alone as a consultant, it was exactly what I was missing from my professional life.” – Angie Hilem, Social Media Marketer

Former Student Julie Buchwald, Professional Coach says:


Ryan’s program is efficient and well-tailored to each individual’s plans and objectives, as far as taking the next step with an idea or evolving to the next level. Ryan helps people achieve their dreams, and has a track record of achieving his own dreams to back up his approach. Also, with the group dynamic, I felt a sense of renewed energy from other entrepreneurial-type people, all of whom were just starting out with their own business concepts/ideas and exploring new avenues. – Julie Buchwald, Professional Coach
