Josh Pocock Story

About Josh Pocock

Josh has been an entrepreneur for many years working in sales and marketing all his life. When Josh started his full-service marketing agency a few years ago he was a generalist cold calling and cold emailing any niche, selling any service from Facebook ads to SEO and website design. Like many entrepreneurs, this didnโ€™t work out well because he was juggling too many different clients in different industries and he had no proven system to convert clients on demand. At first he tried hiring agencies and โ€˜experts to help him get more clients but the ROI was nonexistent. Josh tried everything until he stumbled upon LinkedIn; a goldmine. He spend years learning everything on how to set up a fully automated client acquisition machine leveraging LinkedIn. It worked so well for Josh that his clients started asking for it and it soon became his bread & butter service. He then turned his system into a comprehensible mentorship program to ensure his clients get the long-term results they need while maintaining their sovereignty. Josh quickly was able to scale his business and help his clients scale using LinkedIn and the completely NEW way of prospecting that no one talks about.

Background on

Josh Pocock and Executive Stride

Early Days

As a kid, I wanted to play hockey. In the NHL. I loved the game, so building habits of daily practice and persistence was easy. When a hockey career didnโ€™t happen, I was crushed. It took a minute to recalibrate, but when I did, I knew I didn't want to live life working for others or be dependent on anyone else for my success. I wanted to be an entrepreneur.

Door-to-Door Sales

Started door-to-door sales at 16 - I liked the uncapped income potential. Plus, I wanted to learn how to Sell. Working 12-14 hr days for a month, and closing zero deals was tough. Then things clicked. Soon my sales were ranked number 1 at the company, and over the next year I grew the companyโ€™s top performing sales team. I thought I was โ€˜richโ€™. Made a bunch of money very young and wasnโ€™t smart with it. Had cool toys. Forgot about taxes Accumulated debt.

Started Online Business

Got into online marketing & ecommerce to level up my skills and build a more portable business not reliant on door-to-door grind. Started several ecommerce stores and learned tons about paid ads, websites, SEO, etc. Networking with entrepreneurs, I saw how much I could help other owners strategically grow their businesses. I realized my accrued skill set now offered massive value. So I launched Utopian Marketing - a full service digital marketing agency in Toronto, Canada.

Struggled To Scale

Didnโ€™t take long for the marketing agency to generate a decent income - but โ€˜decentโ€™ was never the objective. Utopian had reached a plateau; I was a generalist cold calling and cold emailing any niche, selling any service from Facebook ads to SEO and website design. I was juggling too many different clients in different niches and hadn't fully systematized and automated my services for either client acquisition or fulfillment. I tried hiring agencies to help, but they all just gave ineffective cookie cutter solutions. My workload and headaches were huge, which made the agencyโ€™s โ€˜decentโ€™ ROI seem even worse. I thought Iโ€™d tried everything, until I came upon a new strategy for business client acquisition. Pretty much locked myself in my office for a few years - invested in myself - learned everything about how to set up a fully automated client acquisition and fulfillment money making machine. One thing I noticed was that there was no cohesive guide that pretty much guaranteed success and encompassed all aspects needed to build a strong foundation and scale quickly. There were many marketers, coaches, and course creators who were just regurgitating information without any idea about all the nuances involved with building a fluent profitable machine. And so I built one myself and started implementing it in my businessโ€ฆ and the automated system worked so well, helping me scale my business like never before, that clients started asking for it. And soon it became my bread and butter service: ExecutiveStride.com.
