Issue #115 | November 21st, 2021

The picture above was from when I took my lovely ladies to get our Christmas Tree!

Yes, it's already that time of year. In fact, on the Aloha Friday Local Marketing Jam Session this week, we even discussed how to get more done even during the holidays (it's below in case you want it).

But we also got a lot more goodies for you. So without further ado… let's dive into this edition of Shark Bites


Welcome to Catch of the Week. Where we show you some of the greatest wins from Sharks across these Offline Seas. If you'd like to be “nominated” for Catch of the Week, be sure to post in the Offline Sharks Private Facebook Group using #win. And you may be featured too. Now on to the good stuff…

To start, we have two “firsts”. One with long-time Shark, Jocelyn Correa Wing, who QUADRUPLED her rates for a client without him batting an eyelash. Woo-hoo!

And also from Ryann Oldach. Who filled his first mailer. That's the power of not giving up. With that attitude, there are many more wins in your future, Ryann.  


Up next we have yet another mailer win with Scott Mizener… THREE mailer wins in fact! Scott didn't say it here, but in the past he said he profits around $5,500 per mailer.

Which means, with these three, he netted a cool $16K+.

Wowza. I helped innovate this mailer method and even that's got me jealous. Just kidding and great job Scott!


And lastly, we have a “grab bag” of wins. 


  • Olivier Leca who landed a mother/daughter duo that turned out to be a hefty client.
  • Michael Howard who landed two small, but mighty projects (and is celebrating by buying himself a few bottles of cheap wine, lol).
  • And Robert Smith, who not only closed 3 lead gen clients… but also filled out 2 mailers for next year. 

Awesome work everyone!

Catch of the week Nov 19

Ok, that's all for Catch of the Week. Remember to head to the Offline Sharks Private Facebook Group and post YOUR wins. And you may be featured to.

Virtual Fortune Roadmap
Closing Soon...

Chances are, you've heard of Virtual Fortune Roadmap by now. (If not, what rock have you been hiding under!?)

This is our “legacy” training. It reveals practically every principle, framework, and guideline we used to grow an agency to $20K+ per month.

And now… we're revealing it all to you.

This training pulled no punches. And it is in many ways the most valuable piece of content we've ever put out. Thing is, it will only be up to watch until Tomorrow, Monday, November 22nd at Midnight Pacific

Catch 2

In this week's “Pirate's Booty”, we're sharing something that should be on every digital marketers radar:

The Google November 2021 Core Update

Not sure what that is? Then you definitely need to check it out. 

Especially because some people have seen a huge drop in traffic (one even said as much as 10X less… yikes). So be sure to check it out here:

Investigating "Naughty Nick"
And His 6-Figure Ways

“Naughty Nick” is under investigation… but it's not what you may think! And that's because the investigator is in fact you!

Nick filmed this video because he wanted to walk you through the process your prospects go through before hiring you. Which is a deep dive “investigation” to make sure you can deliver the goods.

Mere mortal marketers quake at this. After all, they're worried they'll be found out as phonies.

But Nick? Nick LOVES this. In fact, if a prospect goes through an “investigation” like this, they almost always end up hiring him.

How does it work? Tune in here to find out:

How To Stay Sane
While Growing Your Biz
During The Holidays

It's the holidays which means you're going to get a lot done… right?

Not so fast. We may have big goals during the holidays, but the truth is that sometimes it's better to take it slow. You can still be productive… but maybe just not in the ways you think you can be. Which is what we discussed on this week's  Aloha Friday Local Marketing Jam Session.

This is a very important topic. And timely too.

So to be sure you rock and roll this holiday season and get into 2022 with a great start, head here now:

Thanks for playing this round at Shark Bites. I hope you enjoyed it. And if you did, feel free to share it on social media or with a friend.

Before I go, a quick thought on mastery:

Recently Miranda and I started watching a new comedian on Netflix. And this guy is really good at a very unique type of comedy that he does well.

And it made me think: Man, if I was a comedian, I would certainly pay attention to this guy. After all, if you're trying to achieve a goal, the best way to do it is to learn from others who have achieved the same thing.

Not to copy them. But to know what's worked. And what hasn't.

And that in many ways is just what Virtual Fortune Roadmap is all about. It's the things we've done to give us wild success. So you can learn from it. Or straight up copy us if you wish.

But it will only be up until tomorrow night. So best catch it here while you can:

Attended the School of Hard Knocks. A former restaurant manager in Oklahoma, Tom always wanted to be self-employed and free from the butt-smooching of the corporate world. He wanted success bad enough that he picked up his family, including two small children and moved to beautiful Maui, Hawaii. Starting from zero, Tom embarked on building a local marketing consulting business. And promptly fell on his face! It seems Hawaiians were lovely people, until you tried to sell them something! But he persevered and learned from his mistakes. Today he's arguably one of the most successful in his niche and expecting to grow over 100% this year alone.
