‘Twas the day after Christmas and all through Shark HQ, not a creature was stirring, not even a Jay that was Blue. 

The content was hung on the blog post with care. With hopes that Offline Sharks soon would be there!

And look at that, you're already here for this holiday-themed edition of Shark Bites

Before we dive in, let me say a huge thank you and a Merry Christmas from everyone here at Shark HQ. It's been a long, but good year. And I hope you've seen your business grow tremendously.

So without further ado, grab on to Rudolph's antler's, climb into Santa's sleigh, and sled on down to the presents under the tree below… 


[Note: Catch of the Week is where we share some of the greatest weekly wins from Sharks that write in. 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…]

Up first we have a small, but noteworthy win. This win comes from Shark, Ahmad Abdullah Bin Haron, who finished a website for a client and is doing ongoing work from two more. Great job Ahmad! Keep the momentum moving.

And then we also have Shark, Rob Jones, who landed two websites for a whopping $4,000… plus monthly retainer work. Now that's a good Christmas gift to yourself.

Up next, we have a win (plus a great reminder) from Shark, Jhonny Ortega. Jhonny wrote in telling everyone to remember to follow up! So true. And such an easy way to land a client as fast as possible.

Next, there's Olivier Leca, who was able to raise his price on a long-time client… AND lock that client into another year of services. This is well worth looking at if you're thinking of raising your rates (just look at the two options Oliver gave his client… now that's a good offer).

And last but not least, another win from newly crowned Megaladon (which means we verified that her agency did 6-figures in sales this year), Jocelyn “Megalo-Jocelyn” Correa Wing. Great job Jocelyn and keep up the good work!

Catch 2

Welcome to “Pirate's Booty”—a curated stash of local marketing news and content for your reading pleasure. 

Up first we have an article on how to use and profit off SMS marketing. This is a good read because SMS marketing will only become more and more important moving forward. This article is a short, but informative. Catch it here:

SMS Marketing For Local Business: Trends You'll Need In 2022

The next piece of “booty” to enrich your treasure chest, is a nice little ditty on content audits. Content audits are a perfect service to use as a foot in the door for new clients. Because once you audit their content—and show them all the areas they could improve—it becomes very easy to get them to hire you to implement said improvements. To learn how it's done, check out the article here:

A Christmas Confession
From Nautical Nick

Wanna hear Nautical Nick's Christmas “confession” to you? Then step right up! This video is a bit different than usual. No big breakdown of a cutting-edge strategy. And no secret ways to get new clients and make more of the green stuff.

Instead, Nick shares a bit about his story of going from an auto-mechanic to an 8-figure marketer. And he also shares a bit about the Offline Sharks Ugly Christmas Competition.

Holiday Sale
Is Heating Up!

In case you missed it:

This year we had a slight change on our annual 12 Deals of Christmas Sale. And that's because we had way too much cool, new stuff to show you… and ran out of time.

That's why this year, we're doing the 12 Deals in 8 Days Sale! So you get the same 12 deals (including tons of freebies). Only this time, all the goodness is condensed into just 8 days.

Which means, you only have until Friday, December 31st at Midnight Pacific (aka the stroke of New Year's) to get all the savings and freebies included in these 12 deals.

Check them out right here:

That's all for this holiday-themed edition of Shark Bites.

Allow me to take this moment to wish you a happy holiday season. No matter what you celebrate.

This time of year is perfect to reflect on what's truly important. And I know we mostly talk about business and how to grow one. But truly, being surrounded by family, friends, fun, and giving you a life you love is our #1 goal.

Business is just how we get you there. So here's to a happy holiday and an even better New Year's.

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.
