I came to work for Matt Pollard on a project through a recommendation from another copywriter to create a 12 Part Autoresponder sequence for Matt to promote his Rapid Growth System. While working on the project, I had the chance to dive deeply into his Rapid Growth Methodology, and couldn’t help but wonder what would happen if I applied the same principles to my consulting business after our project was finished. So I did. Here’s what happened next: Before implementing Matt’s Rapid Growth System, my consulting business was struggling (as embarrassing as it is to admit). Some months were really good, but others were a different story. What would happen in my case is… I would get a good client and it would be great, but then there would be a couple of weeks in between before I obtained another high value client. That’s when business would really suffer and I would end up being forced to take general freelancing jobs that had nothing to do with my speciality (and getting paid a lot less) to make ends meet. Or I would be forced to lower my spending and suffer through it (think ramen noodles). Then it changed for me after I implemented Matt’s methodology. As soon as our project together ended, I went back to the drawing board and immediately started applying the Rapid Growth System to every facet of my business. I changed all of my messaging and really decided on what type of prospects I wanted to target. I killed off my blog, turned off advertising that was bringing in the wrong prospect types (no more scatter gun marketing)… And after I was done, within less than a week I had effectively spread my new Unique Message of Differentiation throughout my network. Then within 72 hours of doing so, I had scheduled new prospect calls and closed a few clients at double my original rate with no price resistance. Today I’m effectively booked solid. And the best part is, since then I’ve continued to increase my rates every quarter, and not only have I found no resistance so far but…I continue to get a constant stream of referrals because people have me in mind for something specific and not as a “general marketing consultant guy.”

The disconnect was horrible. I knew I had a winning solution, but I was failing at communicating my message in a compelling way. In fact, I was almost ready to give up when I met Matthew. After working with him, I had people clamoring to get my card at conferences, and closed my first mentoring client, who signed up immediately after our first session. How? My custom messaging! My mentoring income increased 25% per client because of Matthew’s advice. And, there’s a steady stream. Best of all is the experience of working with Matthew. Because of his amazing background, you want to bring your A+ game. It’s like getting Bette Midler to coach you on the Voice. Matthew is a true teacher who finds the best in you and cultivates that. You will grow and have fun doing it.

Matthew’s experience and frameworks really helped the companies that attended the workshop we set up together identify what differentiates their business from other businesses, as well as ways to leverage their customers’ satisfaction to acquire even more customers at a lower cost!

I’ve done a lot of work on the foundations of my business in the past, but Matthew’s helped me see the way forward through fresh eyes, encouraging me to dig deeper, re-energising myself and Thinkography. It’s exciting, and I’ve fallen in love with my work again. Feels great!

I reached out to Matthew because I was having trouble choosing a direction for my business. We spoke for just over 30 minutes and Matt had some incredible ideas and confidence in me. I didn’t even end up hiring Matt, I got so much out of the initial call that I left that meeting, made the connections I needed to take my business to the next level, and I’m back to enjoying what I do again!

Matthew accepted an invitation to participate as an expert in the Business Networking Online Summit held in April 2016, where I interviewed 42 of the world’s leading authors, practitioners, thought leaders and experts in all topics related to business networking. Matthew was a gracious and enthusiastic interviewee. He shared his story of moving from Australia to Austin, Texas and how he’s grown his business and developed his influence through networking. I highly recommend Matthew Pollard to you.

I started with Matthew with a very complex business problem, and in just one session he completely solved it. After three sessions, he completely rebranded my business, and gave me all the tools to connect with my ideal clients. Working with Matthew was the best decision I’ve made to ensure my online business is a total success. Thanks Matthew!

I was struggling with where to put my time and energy in my business. Matthew showed me how to simplify things and get better results. I can already see big improvements.

I found Matthew Pollard online and thought he would be a good fit to speak at our Builder 2.0 meeting. With 20 builders to convince, however, it was a bit of a hard sell. In the end, they went with it, and boy were they glad! I’ve never seen a group gather around the speaker at the end of the session to try to hear every word he said in order to learn as much as possible from him. He is truly an expert at rapid growth. He had all of us taking notes and producing actionable items in a very short time frame. I highly recommend him. He connected very well to a group of builders and business owners who think that marketing is secondary to, well, everything else.

Matthew came into my life at a time where I had lost focus and direction within my business. I wasn’t even sure how to define myself or what differentiated me from others working in the field. Matthew coached me for a total of six hours over three appointments. I cannot begin to explain the feeling I got when it all came together, when I realized what had been holding me back and what differentiated me in my field. Matthew is an amazing coach, I recommend him highly. No matter what it is you need help with, he is your guy. He is focused on you and your outcomes and works with you until you achieve them. You will move forward with the knowledge and tools, understanding and confidence that will help you take your business to the next level. Since working with Matthew, my life has turned around and my business is on track. Did I get what I expected from Matthew? Yes, I got exactly what I expected and so much more. He went above and beyond what I expected. Matthew, thank you for challenging me and helping me to find my niche.

A big thank you to Matthew Pollard. I came to him with positioning and branding questions and left with a new world of focus and ideas. In my 30 minutes with him, I was able to identify the things that I should focus my attention on. Matthew’s ability to think laterally is amazing. I look forward to working with him again. Thank you!

Just completed my 30 minute phone call with Matthew. I admit I was worried about a big sales pitch at the end. It never came. He just wanted to genuinely help me answer some questions. My take away: “Forget the market.” Be who I am and then go out there and find the people that it resonates with. Thank you, Matthew…a million times.

I was surprised that Matthew was the one actually calling me on the first free appointment call, and not a sales agent underneath him. He was down to earth, and very helpful with giving me good advice on the direction of my business. Thanks, Matthew!

My service business is to drive customers in their private vehicles when they are not legal to drive themselves. It’s been very frustrating finding staff with the right mindset. Within 20 minutes Matthew helped me to realise that I am only looking for employees when hiring. Matthew suggested focusing on entrepreneurial agencies and defining my expectations. Huge thanks Matthew, much appreciated.

Matthew spoke to our association on how to pitch an idea to an employer and knocked it out of the park. All of our attendees raved about how practical and applicable his talk was and took the time to tell me they wished his presentation had been longer. Leading up to the event, he was responsive, professional, and a joy to work with. I wish all my presenters delivered what they promised. Matt went above and beyond. Thank you!!

I got to speak to Matthew for 45 minutes, and in that time we identified several misconceptions that I had regarding growth. While I previously thought that rapid growth required a large outlay of capital, I now know that it can be achieved with minimal resources. I look forward to learning more from Matthew as we work together in future.
