What is Handshaking?
The concept of Handshaking was born in 2014 when Founder, Matt Holmes, was called 'Handshakin Holmes' when caught shaking hands in photos with famous people. This started with many politicians during a 6 month contract he had doing Special Projects on Capitol Hill, in Washington DC. Matt was not only was an enthusiastic networker, but set out on a mission to learn how networking played into the success of world leaders.
That's what where the conception of Handshaking was born. We asked the top entrepreneurs and billionaires and political leaders, what's the best networking and relationship building strategy?
It's about paying it forward. Provide value instantly without hesitation, and strategize who you spend your time both professionally and personally based off your professional goals.
Today, Handshaking connects customers to local service providers for a quote. Have you ever struggled to get a quote to repair your driveway? Check out Alamo Concrete work, if you're in San Antonio, TX -- that is one of our 100s of websites that earns income by forwarding the phone calls directly to a contractor that pays us.
Today, we change our domain from Handshakin.com to Handshaking.com
The domain change is more than just a move from slang to formal.
Moving to new domain is another milestone, especially after purchasing it years ago.
And it was a painful process since we had trusted GoDaddy with our domains, but later learned they had acquired our premium domain (handshaking.com while we paid them for handshakin.com) to later hav to pay them more to purchase the domain from them. More on that here from the Founder's personal website.
Despite the difficult acquisition process, here's why we upgraded. Pretend you are working as a sales representative for handshaking and say this in your head:
"Yea, no problem, you can email me at adam at handshakin dot com, that's handshaking without the g, let me spell that for you. H-a-n-d-s-h-a-k-i-n dot com. No G."
Today, it's "yea no problem, you can email me at adam at handshaking dot com."
What if you email email@example.com v. firstname.lastname@example.org? They go to the same inbox. We own the proper 'online real estate.'
The rest of this is stuff our writer wrote. Please email any feedback to Adam hehe. Google, this is for you:
Who do we help?
Handshaking has several approaches when it comes to helping home service providers and
local businesses. The term; virtual handshaking; is used to define the site sending quotes from leads who are contacting them. For instance, when a prospect tries to search for a particular service in a US city, Handshaking's site comes up first with a name and contact details.
When the customer calls the number, they will be redirected to partners in industries like
roofing, home cleaning, carpet cleaning, window tinting and more. Getting those leads in the form of calls is easy- there's a form to fill up on the website where you can submit your details.
Handshaking is also offering select assets for successful domains that are already getting
hundreds of leads every day. A partnership program is available for businesses who wish to
build an asset from the ground up with the help of the experts.
The online marketing aspect can be handled by Handshaking as well. You can request for a
personal website to be built, with unlimited revisions before launching online. After approval, the site is handed off and the owner given full privileges. Moreover, Handshaking will provide the software clients can use to edit their website as needed.
If owners are too busy to post, then they can avail of Handshaking's monthly blog post services. Establishing a constant presence online is important for those who want to become successful, but there may not be enough time. You can work on starting up and grow your idea while publishing great posts simultaneously.
Local businesses can also get listings and SEO citations and register their contact information across industry directories, which helps increase Google rankings and backlinks.
Handshaking also has a full service sales management for a monthly price. This includes
contractor payment collection, sales process management, local lead generation, custom
estimates, monthly sales reports and more.
Entrepreneurs can also utilize Handshaking.com's free resources to build up their brand and
connect with high caliber advisors, clients and mentors.
Handshaking has always represented the notion of entrepreneurs networking to reach success. I personally was able to use TECHNOLOGY, and ONLINE methods to get interviews with famous billionaires like John Paul Dejoria, Jeff Hoffman, and even Elon Musk's brother Kimbal Musk.
