in some Google ads which is high in some Google ads industries<00:00:54.180> you<00:00:54.300> might<00:00:54.480> see<00:00:54.660> you<00:00:55.350> know<00:00:55.410> cost industries you might see you know cost industries you might see you know cost per<00:00:55.890> click<00:00:56.070> getting<00:00:56.340> that<00:00:56.789> higher<00:00:57.030> higher<00:00:57.360> but per click getting that higher higher but per click getting that higher higher but in<00:00:58.140> social<00:00:58.440> we're<00:00:58.770> used<00:00:58.949> to<00:00:59.100> Facebook<00:00:59.520> where in social we're used to Facebook where in social we're used to Facebook where you<00:00:59.730> have<00:00:59.969> you<00:01:00.300> know<00:01:00.329> 150<00:01:00.899> $2<00:01:01.739> clicks<00:01:02.129> kind<00:01:02.699> of you have you know 150 $2 clicks kind of you have you know 150 $2 clicks kind of at<00:01:02.850> the<00:01:02.940> maximum<00:01:03.359> so<00:01:04.199> because<00:01:04.559> of<00:01:04.710> that at the maximum so because of that at the maximum so because of that because<00:01:05.100> it<00:01:05.430> costs<00:01:05.820> more<00:01:06.030> to<00:01:06.090> get<00:01:06.360> in<00:01:06.540> what<00:01:07.080> it because it costs more to get in what it means<00:01:07.439> is<00:01:07.619> you've<00:01:07.770> got<00:01:07.890> to<00:01:07.979> be<00:01:08.040> able<00:01:08.100> to<00:01:08.220> make because it costs more to get in what it means is you've got to be able to make means is you've got to be able to make more<00:01:08.640> money<00:01:08.700> on<00:01:09.030> the<00:01:09.180> back<00:01:09.450> end<00:01:09.860> in<00:01:10.860> order<00:01:11.100> for more money on the back end in order for more money on the back end in order for to<00:01:11.970> have<00:01:12.330> a<00:01:12.360> return<00:01:12.840> right<00:01:13.619> so<00:01:13.890> so<00:01:14.369> for to have a return right so so for to have a return right so so for building<00:01:15.090> an<00:01:15.150> outbound<00:01:15.479> sales<00:01:15.720> team<00:01:16.020> but building an outbound sales team but building an outbound sales team but typically<00:01:16.560> say<00:01:16.830> that<00:01:17.100> your<00:01:17.689> minimum<00:01:18.689> annual typically say that your minimum annual typically say that your minimum annual contract<00:01:19.590> value<00:01:19.890> be<00:01:20.130> like<00:01:20.310> $10,000<00:01:21.270> to<00:01:21.420> make contract value be like $10,000 to make contract value be like $10,000 to make sales<00:01:21.900> teams<00:01:22.200> work<00:01:22.470> so<00:01:22.650> what's<00:01:22.830> like<00:01:22.979> the sales teams work so what's like the sales teams work so what's like the minimum<00:01:23.520> ballpark<00:01:24.150> for<00:01:24.360> a<00:01:24.420> LinkedIn minimum ballpark for a LinkedIn minimum ballpark for a LinkedIn advertising<00:01:25.140> so<00:01:25.740> we've<00:01:25.860> seen<00:01:26.040> people<00:01:26.189> make<00:01:26.490> it advertising so we've seen people make it advertising so we've seen people make it work<00:01:26.759> with<00:01:26.939> less<00:01:27.150> but<00:01:27.570> what<00:01:27.900> I<00:01:27.930> generally<00:01:28.140> tell work with less but what I generally tell work with less but what I generally tell people<00:01:28.770> is<00:01:28.860> if<00:01:28.979> you're<00:01:29.070> gonna<00:01:29.189> earn<00:01:29.689> $15,000 people is if you're gonna earn $15,000 people is if you're gonna earn $15,000 or<00:01:30.840> more<00:01:30.869> when<00:01:31.320> you<00:01:31.409> close<00:01:31.619> a<00:01:31.650> deal<00:01:31.890> LinkedIn or more when you close a deal LinkedIn or more when you
