Aloha Shark,

On today's edition of Where In The World Is Nick Ponte… our good pal touches down in The Lone Star State—aka Austin, Texas (that's where the picture above was taken). And he even got to enjoy some fine bbq while there. 

That's one of the reasons we love the remote business model so much. It's not that you have to travel all the time. It's that you can travel if you choose too. And if travel isn't your thing, it still gives you tons of flexibility to take up hobbies or go to happy hour or do whatever it is you enjoy doing.

And on that note, let's dive into this profit-pumping edition of Shark Bites


[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…]

Below you'll find wins from Randy Bett, Jocelyn Correa Wing, Cody Weaver, and Isabel Pizarro.

Randy scored a sweet Squarespace site rebuild. And Isabel closed an annual subscription to Review Pops (which we promoted a while back). 

Jocelyn, one of our Remote Millionaire Members, got a FAT $13,000 per year contract. And Cody Weaver got a whole handful of wins that equal $4,000 upfront with another $2,300+ in monthly recurring tacked on. Great job everyone and thanks for sharing your wins.

How To Go From "Startup"
To CEO Of Your Agency

Today Nick wanted to share this “re-run” episode he filmed a while back. The reason is, someone on our Friday Live Show asked us about going from “startup” to CEO.

It's a great question. But before you can answer that question, you have to know what it means to be the CEO.

And in this video, Nick shares a little how he did it in his agency. And inside you'll see him map out the organizational structure and different departments inside Nick Ponte Marketing.

The Double Your Revenue Plan

On this weeks Aloha Friday Local Marketing Jam Session… we chatted about the “double your revenue plan”. How does it work?

Well let me say that this plan does not require you to take on any new clients. And you don't have to learn anything new. In fact, all this plan takes is to send a few emails to past and current clients and prospects.

Sound too good to be true? It's not! To  find out how it's done, tune into the Live Show replay here:

Something different:

This week we'll be joined by a special guest who will be showing us a hidden feature in Facebook ad targeting that allows for a totally unique type of campaign.

I don't want to spoil the fun here… especially because I'll be sharing more about it this week. But for now just let me say that this is a very unique way of doing things. And it is as “set it and forget it” as they come.

It will take work to get going. But once set up, you're almost sure to see sweet, juicy monthly recurring revenue flow in.

We'll go live on Wednesday, February 16th at 3 pm ET / 12 noon PT

A quick last thought:

I know that you likely see a lot of bright shiny objects. And you want to buy them all. There's a time and place for that. If you're learning and eager, sure it can help.

But there's a time when you need to pull up your britches and get down to work. What I call “revenue-producing activities”. So if you find you're not making any progress, be sure to focus on those few things that will really make the difference. 

Talk soon!

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.
