with Daniel Priestley

About the Episode

This week’s guest is Daniel Priestley. He is an entrepreneur, best-selling author, and international speaker. He has built successful multi-million-dollar businesses in Australia, the UK, and Singapore. He is also the co-founder of Dent Global, one of the world’s top business accelerators for entrepreneurs and leaders to stand out and scale.  

In today’s episode, we are going to talk about Daniel’s book “Oversubscribed: How to Get People Lining Up to Do Business with You”, and his proven real-world methods that will help you drive demand for your service and increase your business.

We explore the idea of getting signaled interest before making sales. We look at examples like Elon Musk’s pre-order system for the cybertruck and how collecting signals from the market can lead to funding and eventually sales. We discuss how coaches can use signal collection to determine the number of clients they can take on and avoid having to haggle for sales. 

Daniel provides insight into oversubscription in business models, coaching ecosystems, and the importance of delivering delight. We also learn about the role of connection in reducing competition and how being a key person of influence with a positive online presence can lead to life-changing deals. Tune in to the episode to learn more.
