There are many factors that drive the companies success.
You will discover that sales is what will keep you business thriving.
Here are some amazing steps to building a clientele from scratch.
#1 – Set Your Target Market
It is very important to identify who will be your target market.
Are you selling directly to a middleman or are you selling directly to the consumer?
Are you selling your services or products to corporations or directly to the consumer market?
Learn to identify your target as this is the foundation to a successful clientele.
#2 – Make Contact
Now that you’ve established who your target market is, you’ll need to begin making contact.
This may be through social media, direct emails, or cold calls. Reach out to the target and let them know what your business is about.
Note: DO NOT get discouraged when someone says no.
They’ve done you a favor by not wasting your time. Turn the page and move on.
You will get no’s and maybes for an answer.
Here’s what to do when someone is interested!
#3 – Make Them Aware of Your Problem-Solving Skills
It is important not to drag the conversation solely about you or the business.
Let them know just enough about who you are and what your business is about without it being all about you.
The prospect should know how your services or products will benefit them!
Ask them a little bit more about their business, make them feel comfortable and get them engaged.
How will your business be of convenience to them? Remember, convenience sells so if you offer more than one product or service, make sure you’re vocal about these ‘solutions’.
Encourage them to see the value of your business by making them aware of your problem-solving skills.
Get a feel of the conversation, did you sell it?
If you didn’t, no worries.
This takes time and take this as experience! If they ask you to follow up with them and provide them with more information this is perfect.
Put them in your data base, let’s get one step closer towards closing the sale.
#4 – Follow Up
The sale is in the follow up. It is vital that you are consistently following up with your prospects.
Your first follow up should address the initial contact.
Thank them for their time and remind them why your service/product is an amazing fit for them or their business.
Don’t be discouraged if they do not respond immediately.
Often times, it will take a few follow ups before the prospect requests a quote or buys from you.
Change your strategy each time you follow up, make them remember you.
#5 – Keep Feeding The Pipeline
Continue to make contact with new consumers/businesses in your target market.
It’s better to keep your pipeline full rather than realizing you have no business because you were so locked on a few prospects that seemed interested that now you have no one to follow up with.
Avoid this mistake by consistently updating your client database and keeping track of who’s interested, who you’re in the talks with already, and who you’ve closed with.
Continuously strive for making new clients, don’t settle.
#6 – Client Retention
Client retention is the ability to retain clients over a period of time. In order to create a successful clientele you must be able to maintain your clients from using your competitors products or services. This is the part where actions speak louder than words. You managed to sell yourself and your business, now it’s time to prove why your business is the best of the best. Client retention is fundamental to a long-term partnership with your clients and customers.
Here are 7 amazing tips that are sure to keep your customers coming back.
Exceed their expectations by overdelivering.
Present a positive attitude at all times.
Show initiative to want to help.
Be a team player!
Appreciate them for their business.
Build a solid relationship.
Take care of their needs so they take care of yours.
Blogging is an amazing way to provide useful information to the world and can feel very rewarding and fulfilling.
It allows us to provide our expertise, opinions, and experience to people all around the world.
Not only that but we get to earn passive income no matter where we are in the world.
I’m going to touch base on topics people blog about as well as my personal favorite things about blogging.
If you’re thinking of starting your very own blog this is no coincidence my friend.
This post was written specifically for you. Here’s how to blog like a champ in 2023!
Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest content on personal finance, entrepreneurship, and trending investing topics. Don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter for more informative posts.
Lets get started!
Find Your Niche First
The first thing you’re going to want to lock down before physically starting your blog is finding your niche.
Your niche should be something you’re good at and can write about fairly easily.
You’re usually very knowledgeable in this area and have a passion for it.
Mine for example is business and finances.
I love business because of the creating process it takes to turn an idea into a reality.
The challenge of managing finances has also made personal financing one my obsessions.
The amazing thing about blogging is you get to provide people with loads of useful information and help.
Do some research to see what sectors dominate the blogging world to gain statistics on your audience.
Here are some blogging ideas:
Food & Recipe
Entertainment & News
Health & Well-being
Mom & dad lifestyle
Sewing & knitting
Fashion & Makeup
Finance & Business
Paranormal / Metaphysical
People are blogging about just anything. Find your niche and express your thoughts!
If you’re a teacher, write about your profession.
I’m sure there’s countless stories you can tell.
Tips even to other teachers!
That’s the point my fellow readers. I
t’s to put your experience online and for others to relate to and gain knowledge from you.
You can do this with anything, I promise.
When I first started my blog I had a blast writing my first batch of posts.
The ideas were overflowing and I couldn’t see myself not doing this moving forward.
Reasons why you should start your own blog
I personally believe everyone should start their own blog.
A blog can provide you with a lifestyle like no other.
Here’s a small list of key reasons why more people should start today:
You have some sort of skill or expertise to share with the world
Your knowledge can answer people’s questions and help them grow
You can monetize your blog with ads and get paid passively every month
Blogging allows you to express your thoughts and opinions
Get paid on the move, while you travel, and while you sleep
Why I personally love blogging
One thing my blog allows me to do is to earn passive income no matter what I’m doing at any time of the day. This is primarily thanks running ads on my website. This is certainly a perk to running a blog.
I get a lot of joy from providing value in people’s lives. I genuinely love to serve people. Blogging allows me to be of help and it just feels good!
Writing is my passion. Whether it’s poetry, music, or advise, I simply love to write. It’s in my blood what can I say? Words are amazing.
Blogging allows me to clear my thoughts. In some ways it’s a form of venting.
Blogging is super easy when you have the right tools.
I’m going to walk you through and provide you with the knowledge you need to build an awesome blog people can talk about.
Lets get started!
#1. Use A Reputable Webhost Service To Blog
This key action will determine just how professional, creative, and even successful your blog has a chance of becoming.
Bluehost is one of the largest webhosting companies hosting over 2 million domains worldwide!
It’s also the number 1 recommended webhost service for blogging by WordPress.
What’s great about Bluehost is that it allows you to create an amazing platform for all of your blogging needs.
It’s easy to use layout and tools make it a leader in its segment.
I personally use Bluehost and I couldn’t be happier.
Everything about Bluehost is professional and easy-to-use.
So, what makes Bluehost great for blogging?
Bluehost has many benefits for bloggers.
One, is the ability to preview your posts and pages during editing.
This makes it very convenient to look at your website from an outside perspective before publishing it.
Other great benefits include:
Free mailing list for your readers
Tons of helpful plugins
Integrated writing and post suggestions for SEO
Realtime traffic statistics
My blog looked nothing like what it looks today.
It’s currently branded and structured to my personal liking.
But, wanna know something crazy?
It looked pretty cool even as a new blog. That’s what I really liked about Bluehost from the get go.
It allowed me to start a presentable website even as a beginner.
Bluehost is going to provide you with everything you basically need to make your blog a success.
You’ll just have to be consistent to see the results you set for your blogging goals.
We’ll talk more about that a little later.
#2. Choose a Plan That Fits Your Needs
You’ll need to choose a plan from Bluehost before you can officially start your blog. Choose the best plan for your goals then choose your domain (e.g. franknez.com).
Each plan will also have a free SSL Certificate which basically means no matter which plan you go with, your website will be secured for your readers!
Now, this is VERY important.
Blogging will require you to have a secured site for your readers.
Which is the best plan?
Plus seems to be a great value considering you get everything Pro gets with the exception of high performance.
Standard performance is adequate for a beginner.
Next is your domain name.
This is what will establish your blog on the internet as a legit website to the world.
Choosing your blog/domain name is a lot of fun.
This is what’s going to differentiate you from everyone else.
Make it personal and mold it to your niche topic. Make it you.
Finish setting up your account information before getting on with some more fun steps!
#3. Get Creative | Pick a Theme For Your Blog
Your blog is the perfect platform for you to get creative, even if your topic is more conservative.
Get creative with the way you format your posts and with the design of your website.
Stand out from other bloggers writing in the same niche as you.
Create a presence your audience will remember.
Be sure everything about your blog stands out as being genuine.
This is a great way for your blog to connect with your readers.
Bluehost has so many cool themes you can choose from.
They do an outstanding job at being able to filter them according to the type of blog you’ll be publishing.
This is a very fun part of the process.
Can I edit the themes?
Yes! You can can edit the themes and move just about anything around to personalize your blog.
You can add menus, change your header image and colors, and add a ton of widgets just about anywhere on your page.
You’ll also be able to change the web address icon image for your website which is super cool.
All the themes are free, however; you can opt out for the premium versions where you can customize your page even more.
This small reinvestment can enhance your blog to the max!

Singer, songwriters, artists, and DJs
Spas, hotels, travel agents, travel bloggers
Magazine and journalists
Trends + more
You can read about each of these on Bluehost’s page here.
#4. Log into WordPress
Once you’ve set up your account, log into WordPress to begin creating your very first blog post!
A great way to promote your blog is through the use of social media platforms.
One way I promote my posts is by taking screen shots of a new posts and uploading them onto my snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, and even Twitter stories.
Promoting your blog on social media will allow your website to gain traffic.
This is going to be very important in the beginning because your blog will take time to rank on google on its own.
The goal is to drive a lot of direct and referral traffic in order for the algorithm to start showing your website to organic viewers outside your circle.
Tip: Get your friends and followers to share your links to drive engagement and optimization.
Use hashtags to optimize growth
The best social media platforms I’ve found have the best hashtag growth potential are Facebook and Twitter.
When you share a post on Facebook be sure to use tags.
This will spread your post to a variety of groups.
Same with Twitter.
Social media hack: after about a week of publishing a post on social media, comment the same hashtags on the comment section of your post.
This will renew your post and put you at the top of your topics!
How to reach 1,000 followers on social media
One of my long-term goals for FrankNez social media accounts was to reach 1,000 followers.
I set this goal because I knew that at this point I would have driven a good amount of traffic to my blog and it really just signified that I stuck to my goals.
After 16 months I finally reached 1,000+ followers on Twitter and I’m actually 70 followers shy of 1,000 on Instagram.
Social media hacks for blog growth
I want to provide my readers with a ton of value so they too can grow their social media following and optimize growth for their blog.
Here are some hacks that can help you along the way:
Go to relevant hashtags and like a ton of peoples tweets
Do the same on Instagram but over on the ‘Recent’ posts instead of ‘Top’ posts
Comment on Instagram ‘Recent’ posts as well
Go through top Instagram post comments and like ‘heart’ peoples comments
Put your blog link on the bio of all your social media accounts
Create content (posts) that will lead your followers straight to your blog
Retweet relevant and helpful posts
Visit your followers followers and like their content
A lot of these hacks are meant to build awareness.
The point is to be seen by as many people as possible.
Having your website link on your bio is going to allow curious visitors to want to learn more about you.
This is why it’s important that you engage with related pages and content.
People who like your content will follow you.
At this point it’s up to you to stay active and be consistent.
Failure in doing so will result in losing followers just as quick as you received them.
#7. Revise older posts
There’s going to come a point when your posts begin to age.
My suggestion to you is to revise older posts to make them even better.
At the very beginning of your blogging journey you’re going to eventually go back to older blog posts and see where you could have added more detail or information.
This is great!
Go though your posts every two months or so and see how you can ‘armor up’ to make them rank higher.
You might even find yourself changing the title of your post.
The point is to keep getting better.
Tip: I will say, shoot for writing long posts.
It will improve your SEO and chance of being found organically on search engines.
Never stop improving champ, you got this.
Should I delete old posts?
I’m going to be honest with you.
I’ve only deleted a few.
What I would do is go back and really take the time to improve a post and make it as detailed as possible.
Aim for high word usage so your blog post can rank in its segment.
Take as much as you need to really power up a targeted post.
Once you’re certain your blog post will rank higher move on to the next one.
If the views don’t improve for these revised posts, figure out what you can do to rank and start seeing more organic traffic flow your way.
Chances are if you write a lengthy blog post and aren’t ranking well then it’s more than likely saturated.
Meaning a ton of bloggers have already covered the topic.
If you run into this problem, keep updating and making it better throughout the months.
Find ways to give your blog post character and make it stand out from everything else that’s out there.
Sure it may be hard to rank for certain keywords but at least you have a detailed post that is continuously being updated to provide more value.
In the end, you might just end up ranking out of the blue.
That’s what hard work does.
#8. Be Consistent
Like any business, art, sport, or dream, you must have perseverance if you are to accomplish a set of goals for your blog.
Be consistent by continuously posting and sharing your information throughout your social media.
Tip: Keep tabs on how your website is performing to see what you need to work on and how you can do it better.
If your blog gets approved by Google AdSense, be sure not to slow down your productivity.
On the contrary, this is the time where you want to put in even more effort than what it took to get approved in the first place.
Blogging can become an amazing source of passive income but will require a lot of discipline and dedication.
Put in the amount of work your goals require from you to see them through.
This creative process is a process.
Becoming a great blogger takes time.
If you find yourself for any reason derailing from publishing, go back to your goal list and see why you started in the first place.
Is it for the income? The freedom? Stay focused and make it happen!
What if I start to lose motivation to blog?
Although blogging can be an amazing escape, it can also be a little overwhelming.
Especially when you’re treating it like a business and have big goals for your blog.
Sometimes we tend to lose motivation and steer from publishing fresh content.
Believe me I’ve been there.
What’s helped me along the way is knowing when to take time off and refresh.
You’re going to want to avoid burning out.
When you burn out you don’t perform at your full potential and creativity seems to fly out the window.
Here are some ways you can regain your motivation to blog again:
Revisit your goals and see why you started in the first place. Was it for the freedom to make money and travel? Are you looking to quit your 9-5?
Searching for high income bloggers personally motivated me when I was feeling down about my own progress as a beginner. This showed me what was possible.
If you’re having writers block, take a few days off and do things outside your blog that you truly enjoy. In my case, I would write music to help spark my creativity again. I also did a lot of studying and reading to recollect my thoughts when on the brink of burning out.
Watch/listen to motivational speakers. Some of my favorite motivational speakers include Grant Cardone, Steve Harvey, Tony Robins, and Gary Vaynerchuck.
Spend time with your family. Connect with your loved ones as a means of getting away from constant work. It’s okay to take a little time off blogging.
If you get back on your feet after a burnout, that discipline and willpower is what’s going to manifest your success as a blogger.
I can honestly say that consistency is what allowed me to reach my first 100 views, then 1,000, then 10,000, and now my first 100K+ views.
Advertising your business is one of the most fun experiences you will have when investing in your company. These are the most effective ways to advertise your business without the use of pay-per-click ads.
Here’s how to grow organically!

#4 – Referrals
Referrals are an amazing way of getting your business advertised through other parties because it’s free promotion and improves credibility.
This form of advertising creates a network for your business and reflects the value of your service or product.
Referrals can be the following:
Person to person recommendation
Shared content on social media
Being featured on blogs
There’s nothing more organic than people talking about your business amongst one another and recommending your services or product to peers.
Tip: If you have a solid relationship with certain customers or clients don’t be afraid to ask for referrals!
Ever heard of the saying “ask and you shall receive”?
#5 – Create A Website
Your business should have a website.
Bluehost allows you to create a professional website for your business while making it super easy to maintain.
Go straight to the source by avoiding the middleman where you’ll spend twice as much for this platform.
A website advertises everything there is to know about your company so get creative and display your business’s services and work.
Having a website allows people to share your services with other people through the use of social media.
It’s also a great way for others to refer your work to other people looking for such services or products.
They get a preview on what you’re able to provide before meeting you which helps build momentum for a potential sale.
#6 – Email Signature
You’d be surprised by the power of an email signature.
Use it to advertise links to your social media, website, and other platforms.
Every email you write will contain this information so use it to your advantage!
Cold emails will now be more effective because of this call-to-action strategy.
Get creative with your signature and really use it as a means of advertising your business.
#7 – Business Cards
Business cards are a great way to advertise your new business.
Always keep them handy and never underestimate the power this little tool has.
These cards might just turn a prospect into a lead and eventually into closing a sale.
Continuously work towards earning more income to pay off your debt more aggressively.
The sooner you payoff one debt, the sooner you can move on to the next while eliminating accruing interest.
Create A Budget
Use a loan calculator for your student loans to understand and save better on bigger payments, as well as finding areas you can budget for, such as junk food, streaming services, and other non-essentials.
You’d be surprised at how much you can save a week by meal prepping instead of eating out daily.
Write down your expenses and see where you can cut back. This strategy will help you not only develop a winner habit but play an important role in your journey to a debt free life.
Mint is a great app that breaks down your expenses and allows you to have an overview on all your account balances.
It Takes Discipline
The fact that you’re here shows your willingness to make this incredible change in your life.
Financial freedom is an amazing experience we all deserve a chance to.
Realistically, only by taking the necessary actions to see our goals through will we truly reach a debt free life.
It’s time to live in the moment and focus on the things that truly matter to us the most.
Be consistent, stay on top of your goal, you have the power to do this.
Ever wondered how to generate money in your sleep? Here are 6 guaranteed ways to earn passive income no matter where you are in the world.
Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest content on personal finance, side hustle ideas, entrepreneurship, and trending investing topics.
Lets get started!
Earning passive income has never been easier to earn.
Whether you’re looking to earn a few hundred dollars per month, an additional $1,000 per month, or $100k per year, it’s all very possible.
Some of these are effortless, others will require more time and work from you.
#1. Invest In Index Funds
An index fund is a type of mutual fund that tracks the market index of pooled investments.
These index funds provide broad market exposure with low operating expense.
Some of these yield a whopping annual return of 10%-20%!
This type of investment can be short-term but is mainly used as a long-term strategy for building wealth.
Depending on the performance of the index fund, these yield passive earnings (dividends) as the market fluctuates.
Here are some tips to choosing the right index fund for you!
Be aware of the expense ratio. The lower this number is, the smaller the fee is. A low expense ratio would be 0.03% while a hefty one would be 1.00%+
Check the funds performance history. You should be investing in a fund with a great performance history, especially if you’re just starting out. The market is consistently going up and down but if a funds history shows it has a great track of continuously going up, then it’s sure to keep growing in value.
Choose a fund that invests in companies that you follow and are genuinely interested in. This thought process allows you to invest in companies comfortably and confidently. Don’t invest in a company you haven’t done your research on.
Index funds are a great way to earn small passive income that eventually snowballs over a long period of time.
#2. Open A High Yielding Savings or Money Market Account
Investing your money into a high yielding or money market accountwill bear money every month.
It will not fail you.
Instead of having your money collect dust in your personal savings account, move some of it to an account that will put your money to work and pay you an interest for holding it.
Here are some tips to how you can make the best out of this strategy:
Choose a bank that is FDIC insured. This protects your assets.
Look for banks with the highest paying interest to make the most of your hard earned money.
Deposit money every month. By depositing earnings every month, interest will accumulate on the deposits made, the initial deposit, and all interest earned! This creates a snowball effect by multiplying your money, also known as compound interest.
This passive income is guaranteed every month and is much more effective than a regular savings account.
This is one of those passive income ideas that require almost no effort at all.
#3. Rental Income
If you own property, you can establish passive income by renting it out.
Each bedroom you aren’t using can generate you passive income year-round!
Write a rental agreement that details the rent amount, due date, whether utilities are covered or not, and conditions of living space in order to set some ground rules clear.
Another great idea is to enlist property you own on Airbnb.
Airbnb is great especially if your property is near a popular tourist hot spot.
List all the awesome areas near your property to attract visitors year-round.
Consider renting out storage space in your home if you have the room for it.
Neighbor.com allows you to find people in your area looking to store their personal belongings.
This makes it easier for you to find prospects without the hassle of marketing your service online.
Renting your space is one of the more underrated strategies to earn passive income.
A REIT is similar to an index fund and is another great way to earn passive income.
By investing in a REIT you invest specifically in real estate companies.
These funds have a higher dividend gain than most index funds and have better traction when the market isn’t performing at its best.
REITs own income-producing real estate such as offices, apartments, warehouses, hospitals, shopping center, hotels, etc…
The awesome thing about REITs is that you invest in real estate without involving credit, large amount of upfront cash, or closing deals yourself.
Similar to an index fund, you want to invest in companies that are high performers and have the biggest returns in history.
#5. YouTube Content
YouTube content has allowed many people to earn passive income through the use of placed advertisement in their videos.
Find a niche and grow an audience.
Meet the requirements to monetize your videos so you can start making money in your sleep.
This will require your time and dedication so write a plan and take action to see it through.
If you found this article to be of value be sure to give it a social share!
Blogging, like YouTube can create passive income when monetized properly.
One of the most common ways blogs are monetized is through displayed advertisement.
Once your blog is monetized with ads, you will begin to earn passive income 24/7, especially if you have a rather large audience.
You can also earn passive income through affiliate programs.
Community, today I want to discuss some AMC stock news and updates. If you’re following me on Twitter, then you’ve seen me post this article a few times.
Bookmark this blog post because I’m going to be updating this article every time new AMC stock news is released! If you’re subscribed to the blog’s newsletter then you will be receiving an email notification or email from me once this article has been updated.
Welcome to Franknez.com – I want to give more to the community. So, here’s the latest AMC stock news for you.
Adam Aron Has His Eyes On Shiba Inu Coin (10/29)
Ladies and gentlemen, Adam Aron has done it again.
He took it to Twitter this morning asking the community whether they’d like to see Shiba Inu coin on the list of cryptocurrencies for online payment.
The CEO had created a poll on Twitter last month regarding the acceptance of Dogecoin (see below).
That poll showed around 77% of retail investors favored the decision.
The most recent poll on Shiba shows almost 90% of the community favors the decision of listing $SHIB.
The cryptocurrency has made mainstream media headlines and has a strong community backing up its presence.
Skeptics of the cryptocurrency fear a diversion of the communities.
However, they fail to see that the SHIB community and AMC community are more alike than they think.
On the contrary, the introduction and acceptance of this community may very well play in each others favor.
How This Affects SHIB & AMC
Adam Aron is bringing more eyes to his company, to the stock, and to the community by making these type of moves.
He understands the importance of community and is accepting another massive community into his world.
The bullish news will serve both AMC and SHIB well, drawing attention to both the stock and crypto.
And if you don’t know where to buy Shiba Inu coin, you can buy it on Coinbase.
Leave your thoughts below in the comment section of the blog.
AMC To Accept Dogecoin Cryptocurrency (9/22)
Adam Aron, CEO of AMC Entertainment, created on poll on Twitter asking retail investors whether AMC should accept Dogecoin for online payment.
The poll received 140,000 votes with 77% of retail investors saying yes and only 23% saying no.
Now it’s just a matter of AMC Entertainment making this form of online payment a reality.
Adam Aron has been an amazing CEO and has proven to be one of the first CEO’s in history to directly engage with its shareholders throughout social media.
Elon Musk even took it to liking Adam Aron’s tweet on Twitter showing his support on the innovation. Elon has been one of the biggest advocates for cryptocurrency with Dogecoin and Bitcoin being the two most popular choices.
What Cryptocurrencies Will AMC Be Accepting?
Aside from Dogecoin and Bitcoin, other form of cryptocurrencies AMC theaters will be accepting include: Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Bitcoin Cash.
This innovation is going to change our world. Cryptocurrency is making a bigger statement than ever before and it’s here to stay.
How it’s regulated or used in companies is something we will come to find out very soon. This bullish news should have retail investors excited for the future of cryptocurrency and AMC Entertainment stock.
Now, this particular piece you’re about to read is from one of my moderators on the Discord, AMC with FrankNez. I’ll leave the link to the group at the end of the article. Enjoy!
Written by: Erin Scott
APES! Huge news on the horizon for AMC.
If you’ve been in Frank’s AMC discord, you likely have seen me in there posting memes, or cracking wise, as I am the resident memelord and comedic relief in the server.
I have been doing some of my own DD, as you should too! Never take anyone’s word for it. Look for yourself apes, all the information is out there if you look hard enough, and boy howdy let me tell you.
I’ve found a few tasty breadcrumbs that could potentially be a trail leading to some major catalysts for an AMC runup. Now bear in mind, folks. I am not a financial advisor, and this is not financial advice. I am just a smoothbrained crayon eating ape investor who is hyped as all get-out and have a very strong bullish sentiment about the next few days in AMC.
As Frank says, let’s get started!
Adam Aron announces AMC theaters will be launching its first ever $25+ million NATIONAL ad campaign with starlet Nicole Kidman! Apes, this is huge! Adam is joining us to remind people that the theater experience is a time honored tradition in our country, that won’t be driven away by greedy hedge funds!
Aron has also been talking with Melissa Lee about never-been-done plans for AMC! Apes, could this be the AMC/GME team up that’s been speculated since AA confirmed he has reached out to GME’s Ryan Cohen??
As of the time of this writing, Melissa Lee hasn’t aired with the story yet, but I am sure Frank will update this article accordingly. Fam, imagine our favorite stocks joining with our community and taking the fight BACK to the shorts who would seek to rob us of our favorite entertainment!?
Furthermore, when doing a little digging, I came across this juicy choice chicken nugget dipped in spicy affirmation sauce! Confirmation of a SEC Investigation on shorted stocks baby! Right in section 5 of GME’s 10Q earning report filed with the SEC itself written in plain English on GameStop’s investor website.
And lastly, we have been bullish for days apes! We have a solid 45° uptrend, and a signal like this chums the waters for those big institutional investors! Something huge is coming our way apes, strap in and hang on, because I have a feeling we are about to take a ride to the next level!
I will keep this short and sweet but if you enjoyed this article, stop by in Frank’s discord and say hello! I’d love to hear from my fellow apes! STONKY KONG, OUT!
NSCC-005 Raises Margin Requirements (9/3)
The DTCC just released a filing approving the NSCC’s proposal to increase the minimum required fund deposit (margin requirements) for short sellers.
Short sellers were required to keep a minimum balance of $10,000 in their margin accounts until now. As of September 3rd, 2021, these accounts are require to keep a whopping $250,000 by law.
“On the morning of the effective date, members with a fund deposit below $250,000 will incur a deficit, that will require funding by 10AM EST”.
How Does This Affect AMC?
This doesn’t just affect AMC, this affects the entire market. Plays that are currently heavily shorted such as GME, SPRT, and BBIG for example, will all be affected.
Short sellers are getting a 2500% margin increase as of September 3rd, 2021. Community, this is massive. If short sellers cannot meet this requirement then their positions will be liquidated.
Your favorite stocks are about to start moving up through a series of gamma squeezes. These gamma squeezes could cause hedge funds to close out their positions resulting in multiple short squeezes from multiple heavily shorted stocks.
These series of gamma squeezes must not be confused with a short squeeze for any particular stock. These margin requirements will first eliminate the smaller short sellers.
Holding will be crucial if we are to squeeze the bigger short sellers from their positions. Massive things are right around the corner!
AMC Theatres On Demand would offer more than 5,000 movies from every major studio and indie film distributors, available for purchase or rent.
“We’re thrilled to have partnered with AMC to power AMC Theatres on Demand for their millions of customers and provide an infrastructure that is efficient and scalable”, said Carol Hanley, president of Whip Media.
Amazing news for AMC Entertainment indeed. This type of bullish news should push AMC stock further up since fundamentalists are still looking at AMC fundamentals.
The ape community understands that fundamentals are out the window when it comes to a short squeeze play. However, every step along the way counts.
Any business that goes online now goes from limitations to unlimited possibilities. While AMC Entertainment earns money the traditional way, through ticket sales and concession stands, they will now have the ability to earn revenue at scale through their online services.
AMC going online can easily raise its value to a 3-figure stock alone. It no longer depends on old traditional business methods. AMC has now configured a hybrid business model that will generate revenue even while movie theaters are closed after business hours.
This is certainly exciting news.
AMC Breaks Through $40
What an amazing day for the ape and retail community. AMC finally broke the $30 level of resistance and flew past $40.
AMC stock volume traded at a whopping 221 million! The average volume is approximately 169 million. Today’s momentum pushed through short sellers like a mob trampling shoppers at a black Friday sale.
August was the time to bulk up before momentum started taking over again. I predicted that these coming days would consist of AMC having an open runway of which we saw happen today (8.24).
Short Sellers Lose $800 Million
According to Ortex, short sellers amounted a whopping $800 million loss as AMC stock spiked up more than 20%. Short sellers betting against the stock can expect this pattern to occur in the coming days to weeks as AMC surges.
The opportunity to close positions in the $30 range are long gone. This is what happens when greed overpowers reasoning.
This last week in August could be pivotal. If shorts do not close their positions now, they will continue to suffer immense losses.
The BIGGEST Catalyst To A Short Squeeze
You know what the biggest catalyst to an AMC short squeeze is? It’s you. That’s right. You reading this.
The ape community is the biggest catalyst to this short squeeze trade. As long as retail investors continue to hold the stock, a short squeeze is inevitable.
Now, while we cannot control what whales (institutions) do, we can certainly control what we do. And that’s all that really matters during this play. Especially given the fact that retail investors own more than 80% of the free float.
Today we saw sells of up to $2.2M, and it barely affected the share price. This shows you just how strong we are as a community.
That’s 1/4 of their investment in the hedge fund. Citadel and partners plan to withdraw the money at the end of the third quarter. They made the investment in late January during the time Melvin Capital’s short positions were under attack by the heroes who saved both AMC Entertainment and GameStop.
The ape community saved two major companies in American history and are on a mission to squeeze shorts from their positions. Will Melvin Capital end up closing their doors? It’s certainly possible, especially if the hedge fund continues to lose money.
What Does This Mean?
We’re beginning to see that hedge funds short on AMC and GME stock are now resulting to desperate measures. They are scrapping money from their own pockets now.
See, retail investors liquidate their positions in other stocks to buy more AMC, to buy more GME stock. Ultimately to make more money right?
Hedge funds on the other hand are liquidating their stocks, and pulling their investments out from other institutions because they’re running out of money. They’re required to keep money above margin requirements.
Unfortunately for Melvin Capital, Citadel just left another hole in their sinking ship by pulling out a quarter billion dollars from the hedge fund. Melvin is already down about 43% this year with about $11 billion in assets remaining.
The retail community continues to buy and hold both AMC and GME stock. AMC stock is setup for another technical break above $40 which will only cause short sellers to trend negative on paper.
Hedge funds cannot afford to lose their clients investments this long. It’s been 8 months of nonstop losses for short sellers all year. Clients will be pulling money out.
It seems retail investors will not only be forcing short sellers to close their positions, but will also take down the hedge funds who planned to bankrupt America’s favorite companies.

If you enjoyed this short piece be sure to subscribe for more updates. I will be revising this piece as new AMC stock news comes up for the community.
Anything that has to do with our community winning against short sellers will be posted here. A lot is going on and has been going on.
I’ve recently come across some speculation that AMC is some sort of pump and dump that’s being promoted for a select few to benefit from.
And although mainstream media has been saying this for quite some time, have you ever really given it any thought?
I have to cover this because I want to protect you. Somebody has to ask the hard questions right? Is AMC a pump and dump?
Welcome to Franknez.com – information landed on my lap last night that led me to some deep digging and serious thought. Let’s identify what a pump and dump actually means.
Let’s get started!
How Did The AMC Movement Start?
The GameStop fiasco was going on for quite some time before it became mainstream. GME stock didn’t begin to move up until some time in late October and began to squeeze in late January.
It wasn’t until Redditors noticed AMC was also being heavily shorted early this year. A few of these retail investors were able to buy AMC stock before it gamma squeezed to $20+ per share.
One of the retail investors who was able to get in just days before the runup was Trey Collins from Trey’s Trades. I got in as the stock was coming down, I had not seen Trey’s content at this point.
It was during this time that Robinhood halted buying GameStop, AMC, Blackberry, and other heavily shorted stocks, and the scandal began.
Trey saw that AMC stock still had high short interest and a high utilization rate. These two data figures is what allowed us to build a strong conviction towards a higher share price.
High short interest meant shorts could potentially get squeezed out of their positions with enough momentum and buying pressure.
The data spread like wildfire.
People were excited about the data. Retail investors heard of what happened with GameStop and experienced FOMO to some degree knowing AMC could potentially have a similar runup.
Retail investors at this point are getting in for a short squeeze play.
AMC Retail Investors Get Ridiculed
The media was quick to ridicule average people buying stock. See, opportunity in the stock market in general is not meant to get passed down to the general public.
It’s a game that’s been hidden from ‘average people’ so to speak, to keep classes in line.
When Franknez.com went live on January 1st of 2020, my goal was to spread financial literacy, teach people how to begin investing in stocks, and to help people create a plan to build wealth.
My platform has always been a place for self-education.
When The Fool, MarketWatch, Benzinga, InvestorPlace, and other financial platforms began attacking the community, I couldn’t bear to see people get pushed around.
If you’ve heard my story before, I didn’t want to write about AMC on my blog. But something told me that this platform was created for the purpose of harnessing information that could change the lives of people.
So, I took it upon myself to stand up for the community and publicly share the information that Trey and other TA analysts were discovering. Before I knew it, we were fighting corruption and our goal has been to make real change in the markets happen.
Only then will we see proper price action in AMC and GME stock.
What Is A Pump And Dump?
A pump and dump is where a group of investors promote a specific stock to pump its price up through buying pressure and then selling off during high runups. Pump and dumps are usually orchestrated from the get-go and die off rather quickly.
Here’s the definition from Investopedia:
“Pump-and-dump is a manipulative scheme that attempts to boost the price of a stock or security through fake recommendations. These recommendations are based on false, misleading, or greatly exaggerated statements. The perpetrators of a pump-and-dump scheme already have an established position in the company’s stock and will sell their positions after the hype has led to a higher share price.” – Investopedia
How Do We Compare This To AMC?
How can we use this information to separate what’s occurring with AMC and what an actual pump and dump means?
Retail investors have been spreading knowledge, not recommendations. Real apes, people – not bots.
The information provided has not been false or misleading. High short interest, high utilization rate, naked shorting, dark pool trading, it’s all real. These are all facts provided by software that tracks this data in the markets. No one is making this up and mainstream media has finally shed light on this real problem.
The AMC community has not sold their stock, even during the highs. Selloffs from institutions combined with short laddering explains why AMC’s stock price has been going down after spikes. That is something our community ultimately has no control over.
See, the media portraying AMC to be a pump and dump fails to touch topic on the high short interest rate. They fail to present the manipulation suppressing the stock’s price.
It’s for this reason why I’m breaking this down today. When people looking for opportunity ‘Google’ whether AMC is a pump and dump, I don’t want The Fool to mislead people or scare them from their money.
How about let’s put everything on the table and let the public decide based on the information provided. Maybe they don’t want to put an effort or join a cause fighting for a fair market. Perhaps it’s too much for them.
But at least fair information and facts would have been provided. Community leaders are not trying to convince people to buy the stock. Anyone who bought AMC months back when we published the data is up more than 1000% in gains.
That is a choice retail investors made based on the information that was provided. That same information is why we continue to hold the stock. What’s limiting the data at hand is the increased manipulation in the market.
The AMC Community Demands A Fair Market
The reality is very few retail investors are facing losses in AMC and seasoned investors in the community continue to hold the stock.
Why are we holding the stock? Because it’s being suppressed by hedge funds and market makers who get to mold the rules to their benefit.
We’re seeking regulations from the SEC that will prevent short sellers from creating counterfeit shares and stop dark pool trading once and for all.
Once these unethical strategies are eliminated, retail investors will begin to experience the bigger fruit of their trade. AMC should runup as transactions are no longer masked through dark pools.
This is a serious matter that financial platforms nor hedge funds have addressed. However, the community has made enough noise to get CNBC’s Melissa Lee and FOX Business’s Charles Payne to publicly touch base on this very real matter.
The AMC community has been a beacon for change in the markets. Financial institutions are going to realize very soon just how much they have underestimated each and every one of us.
So, Is AMC A Pump And Dump?
AMC is the reason why a new era will be replacing its current leaders. AMC is not a pump and dump, it’s a beacon for change and a fair market.
I’m going to be the first to say you don’t have to own any AMC stock to fight against corruption within our community.
Owning AMC stock is a bonus. We have the knowledge and data to stick to our convictions and make a life-changing play for ourselves and our families, if we want. We don’t need anyone’s validation anymore.
Buying AMC stock is a ticket to the moon, there’s no doubt about that. However, fighting for a fair market will be the community’s legacy.
A chance at a fair market will increase our probability of squeezing shorts from their positions. The weight of the wait would have been worth it.
Whether you decide to buy, hold, or sell your stock, don’t stop fighting for the community. But remember, diamonds are created under pressure. Your voice is a weapon, use it.
Retail investors have never been this invested in the markets before. A lot of you have been increasing your knowledge database all year.
We used to park our money in long term index funds or pick some of our favorite companies to invest in and that was it. We let the media decide how to move the markets and we made decisions based on that.
However, ever since investing in momentum stocks such as AMC and GME stock, retail investors have never had a chance at a fair market; until now. The AMC and GME community are changing everything.
From deciding the worth of a company, to being a driving force that has the ability to save industries, hedge funds have awoken a sleeping giant.
Welcome to Franknez.com – I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on the growth and impact of our community recently. Here are 5 reasons why hedge funds fear retail investors right now.
Lets get started!
#1. Knowledge Is Getting Spread
More retail investors have joined the markets and are getting a dose of knowledge every day. If you really think about it, more people have begun investing in the stock and crypto markets than ever before.
People are tired of not doing something to change their current positions in life. Be it monetary for most. Retail investors are in the markets and taking life changing measures to change their financial situations.
And I’m proud of you for that because that’s what it’s going to take to make it out there. Keeping your money in BofA or Wells Fargo isn’t going to multiply your money.
So kudos to you for taking calculated risk and allowing your money to work for you. And if you haven’t shown a friend or family member how to invest in the markets yet, I’m going to leave a link at the end of the article that you can send them so you can save your time from showing them how.
Meme stocks changed the markets in the way that it brought a ton of new retail investors to the game. But what happened next shocked hedge funds. The knowledge of malpractice in the markets spread and now we’ve created a massive movement towards having a fair market.
Knowledge in our community has spread and can continue to spread like wildfire. This is a massive threat now more than ever to hedge funds illegally shorting the companies we’re betting on.
#2. Naked Shorting & Dark Pools Have Gone Mainstream
What was once denied and hidden to the public for so many years has now become public. Naked shorting and dark pools have gone mainstream through platforms such as CNBC and FOX News.
Our community has magnified the cancer in our markets and the spotlight is now directed towards these problems.
We’ve forced the media to cover our story. We’ve forced change to an extent and we must keep making noise.
Naked shorting and dark pool trading must be stopped. I’ve seen many of you tag Gary Gensler and the SEC on Twitter. Keep it up.
Believe me when I say they see our concerns and they see your comments. Let your voice be heard even when it feels like it isn’t being heard. I hear you, the community hears you, and believe me they hear you too.
#3. We’re Putting Real Pressure On Regulations
We know the SEC hears us because they’ve been pushing regulations out although hedge funds continue to find a way around them.
However, we know that the SEC is only making themselves seem like they are doing something, so they don’t look complacent in the eyes of mainstream media.
But we know nothing has really changed. In fact, hedge funds are fighting the SEC on delaying liquidations and margin calls right this very moment.
OCC Requests To Delay Liquidation
Retail investors on Reddit recently came across a proposal sent to the SEC by the OCC (Options Clearing Corporation) to delay liquidation in short and long positions.
Here are the rules the Options Clearing Corporation (OCC) is requesting:
Rule 1104(b) – authority to delay the immediate liquidation of a suspended Clearing Member’s margin deposits and to use such deposits to borrow or otherwise obtain funds from third parties
Rule 1106(e) – authority to determine not to close out a suspended Clearing Member’s unsegregated long positions or short positions in options or BOUNDs, or long or short positions in futures
And Rule 1106(f) – authority to execute hedging transactions to reduce the risk associated with any collateral or positions not immediately liquidated or closed out pursuant to Rules 1104(b) and 1006(e)
We have the power to call out the SEC and Gary Gensler and say we do not approve this as it’s a violates the protection of retail investors from manipulation in the markets.
Only you can do that. We need to ensure that hedge funds get their positions liquidated for AMC and GME to squeeze. Squeezing hedge funds from their positions will do more than make retail investors rich, it will create real change for future investors.
We have the power to create a fair market. All we have to do is be proactive about what we want.
You can read the rest of the incredible DD on r/superstonks here.
#4. Hedge Funds Continue To Eat Millions of Dollars
For every day you hold, hedge funds shorting AMC and GME stock continue to face devastating losses.
I get it, red days aren’t the most exciting. And seeing the manipulation occur in front of our own eyes doesn’t make matters better.
But know this. You holding your stock is causing our adversary so much money that they’ve become so desperate to the point they are asking the SEC for delays on liquidations.
Community, I think we’re getting close.
We are crushing it!
Why Are Hedge Funds Delaying The Inevitable?
They are trying to wear you out. Patience is difficult, I know. By delaying liquidation, they chisel away at retail investors with low convictions.
These institutions have been playing a game of psychology with us all year. They’ve even used AI technology to predict retail’s moves. Their technology can’t give them proper data when all we’re doing is buying and holding the stock though.
This strategy has been our biggest advantage and I’m confident in saying it’s going to pay off.
#5. Retail Investors Are More Intelligent Than They Thought
I think it’s fair to say retail investors have been greatly underestimated. We tarnished reputations from $0.01 expert analyst predictions, denied our table to a two-faced Jim Cramer, and have made the average person a lot of money on paper.
I guess dumb money isn’t so dumb after all.
Our community has been doing the homework every day for almost ten months now and will not stop advocating a fair market.
This historic moment will never be forgotten. You reading this, yes you; have more power than you could ever imagine.
I’ve Never Said This…
There’s something I’ve been wanting to get off my chest for quite some time now. And I think I’m ready to say it now..
I’m proud of you.
I’m proud of you for staying grounded, for shunning negativity, and for sharing valuable content and data with the rest of us.
I’ve used my platform to protect the community, share the knowledge, and to communicate with you. But ultimately, it’s you who’s made a world’s difference, not me.
Your courage is moving mountains! And that’s why I love this community. Your courage has given me strength when I’ve needed it too. So thank you for simply being you.
Cold emailing prospects is a great way to establish new relationships and build your clientele. If you’re looking to improve your technique, well I have you covered. These are the best tips to writing a successful and eye catching email.
Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest content on personal finance, side hustle ideas, entrepreneurship, and trending investing topics.
Lets get started.
Are cold emails effective?
Cold emails have personally worked better for me than any other sales or closing strategy.
The process of sending out cold emails to grow my network and follow up database has allowed me to grow a 6-figure clientele.
For some people cold emails might not drive results. Maybe you’re better at expressing yourself via voice. In this case cold calling might be your best bet.
I love words so I favor writing. I can also speak to a prospect or client confidently over the phone but my choice for initial contact is by cold email. This is what has worked for me and I’m going to show you exactly what I’ve done to make my cold email strategies effective.
Do you know what the purpose of an envelop is? It’s to get the receiver to open it and read the contents within the envelop. Cold emailing prospects will work the same way. You are going to need them to open your email instead of trashing it on sight.
Your subject line must sell the contents within the email so that a prospect takes what you have to say into consideration. Cold emailing prospects will require you to get creative with drawing attention to your emails. An attractive subject line will draw the prospect to your world.
You might have a great idea on how you want to draw a prospect in. You’ll come to find out it takes a lot of practice through trial and error. The persistence that goes into creating great emails will eventually bear fruit. Don’t get discouraged if prospects aren’t replying immediately.
One strategy I found very effective is to simply call them to follow up to let them know you sent out an email with some information you think they can obtain value from. Not only does the prospect hear your voice and has an intro of who you are, but they feel more inclined to find this cold email.
Tips for writing an attractive subject line
There are actually quite a few subject line email hacks that increase your open rate and get your emails seen. Here are some I’ve implemented myself:
Keep your subject line short
Avoid using CAPS AND EXCLAMATION MARKS!
Put yourself in your prospects shoes
Use a positive sentiment
4 major key points to writing an attractive subject line
Keep your subject line short: this tells your prospect you’re not going to waste their time and demonstrates personality. Long subject lines tend to come off as wasteful and sales pitchy.
Avoid using caps and exclamation marks: The purpose of your email’s subject line is to get your email opened and read. Throwing caps and exclamations marks screams SPAM. Avoid this at all cost.
Put yourself in your prospects shoes: Start from the inside out. Begin thinking what type of email you would be more inclined to open if you were in your prospects position. A good way to find out what your prospect needs to see is to know your industry very well.
Use a positive sentiment: Using a positive sentiment is going to make your prospect curious. They’re going to want to know who’s emailing them before even getting to the actual message or purpose of your email.
Here’s an example of a recent success pitch
The sales director of the company I do 100% commission-based sales for let me in on some recent news. One of the biggest clients in the company had acquired another multi-million revenue generating company in our industry.
Within a two weeks timespan I had closed my first sale with this acquired sister company using only emails. The initial email went like this:
And the rest is history. A rep from the company contacted me a week later for a quote on a rather large project and I sealed the deal via email days later.
Did Jamie respond?
Yes, she did. She was pleased to ‘meet me’ and advised she would be sharing my information with her team. Jamie is the CEO of this now acquired sister company.
So, what made this email very successful?
I implemented the 4 key points to writing an attractive subject line. I kept it short with positive sentiment without the need to use an exclamation mark or caps. Who doesn’t like to be congratulated for a big move right?
My email body demonstrated to Jamie what type of connection I could be for her business and for her team. Lets talk a little bit more about what made this email body an attractive email for the CEO of this company to share with her team.
If you’re enjoying this post so far be sure to bookmark it and come back to it a week from now to refresh your memory on these skills that have allowed me to build a 6-figure clientele.
#2. Write a body email that gets noticed
In the example email above you will find that there’s a lot of details packed into an easy-to-read format that delivers exceptional value from the get go.
The keyword here is value.
Every email you send out should provide value in its highest form possible. Yes, even when simply responding to a prospect or a client.
See, when Jamie had responded to my initial contact email I responded back to her.
Wonderful – thanks, Jamie!
Looking forward to providing the team with tons of value.
Always be the last person to respond.
Address your prospect by their name
It’s common courtesy to address someone by their name. Avoid writing ‘to whom it may concern‘. This form of introduction completely disregards who you’re looking to do business with; especially if their name is already on their email address.
Use your prospects name in the email to be direct and personal.
If the prospects email does not have a name and it’s simply an info or sales email, address the team. You can start your email with ‘hello team‘ or ‘good morning team‘ to show comradery and respect to anyone reading the email.
Doesn’t that just sound so much better than ‘to whom it may concern’?
Establish a connection
Figure out how to establish a connection with someone you’ve never met before. I did this on my email by advising that our company has been a long-time partner with the acquirer company as well as another sister company.
This established the possibility of being trusted. Remember, I still have to deliver and won’t be fully trusted until I do business with them and exceed their expectations.
Tip: don’t work to meet your customers needs. Work to exceed your customers expectations.
Make yourself known
Let your prospect know who you are, as well as a little bit about your responsibilities in your company.
Remember, you’re a stranger to your prospect. Giving them a little bit of background lets them know what type of value and commitment you are able to provide to them and their team.
Demonstrate a willingness to help
People are more inclined to work with people who put their customers first. Demonstrating a willingness to help shows you’re:
a team player
committed to seeing a project through
reliable and confident in your work
I did this on my email by making myself available to my prospect at their convenience.
Use a professional signature
Your signature should be clear and easy to understand and read. There’s no need to personalize it with dated script or flashing banners. Often times this comes off as spam.
My email has a headshot image along with my contact information. By personalizing my signature with a headshot, it lets my prospects know who they’re communicating with.
People like to do business with people, not with logos or company names.
When you’re cold emailing prospects you’re going to want to make a great first impression. Your signature is the icing on the cake. It’s the dessert after dinner. It’s the farewell after a meeting.
Your signature should contain the following:
High quality art linking to your website or social media
This information tells your prospect exactly who you are and what company will be doing business with them very soon. They have easy access to your address and number. If they want to explore a little more then they can click on your website or social media link for an in-depth look and insight of your company.
#3. Get Remembered
There’s someone else like you targeting your prospects for their business. But not exactly like you, right? You’re different, you want it more. So get remembered.
Wow your prospects with your demeaner and willingness to help. You already know that no one out there can service them like you can. All you need is ONE opportunity. One opportunity to prove there’s no one like you out there.
Cold emailing prospects is an attempt to get them to look at you. Strategize how you can make that happen. Be honest, never sell yourself short, and genuinely strive to make some else’s lives better.
Since we’re talking about emails, my best advice for you is to get remembered on every email. Once you’ve turned a prospect into a client, keep getting remembered. Each email should leave the client thinking about how much value they get from working with you.
This can easily be accomplished by:
Being courteous and thankful
Responding to emails quickly
Making work easier for them
Using exclamation marks to demonstrate a great attitude (e.g. absolutely!)
Closing emails on kind terms (e.g. have a great weekend, enjoy your time off, etc.)
Overall presenting exceptional customer care
Cold emailing prospects is about strategizing so don’t get frustrated if your emails are not being responded to. Get creative to see how you can tweak your emails to eventually receive a response.
Tip: Leave a great impression every single time, just like when you first began cold emailing prospects.
