Issue #169 | December 4th, 2022

The holidays continue with Sophie's birthday! (Happy Birthday Sophie!)

That's her picture above from when we went to see snow last winter. And we're on a road trip now to go skiing too.

Like I often say, work is important. But it's also important to remember why you work. 

And to help you get more out of each hour you put in, let's dive into this round 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 Remote Agency Owners Facebook Group using #win. And you may be featured too. Now on to the good stuff…]

This time on “Catch of the Week…”

  • Remote Millionaire, Paul Wilson, kicks things off with his first monthly recurring SEO client… That's what we like to see.
  • Next, Nick's team hooks up another few SEO and SEM clients… with Nick closing one himself to stay sharp on the ball. 
  • Then Norm “The Norminator” Thomas, lands a HUGE monthly recurring client that is taking some stress off his plate…
  • Last but not least, Remote Millionaire, Jeanine, sold a few projects… hired a VA… and now has some Web Designers in place to outsource work too. Great job Jeanine!

Another great week! And with St. Nick's Challenge coming up… we're sure to see lots more wins just like it.

Do you use LinkedIn to prospect? If so, then you may want to know how the new “Focused Inbox” may affect the messages you send prospects. Read about it here:

Next, an article about SEO, links, and whether or not they're as useful as they used to be. The short answer: They're not. And the longer answer can be found right here:

How can you crush your local market… even if it's tiny and in an international country?

That's just what Jelle DeVlieger discussed with me on Episode 18 of the Remote Millionaires Podcast.

This is a great episode if you live in a small market. Or if you don't live in the US and want to know how to adapt our methods to your local country.

Plus, you'll learn about how Jelle finds clients… his advice for aspiring business owners overseas… and a whole lot more.

On this week's Aloha Friday Local Marketing Jam Session, Nick sat down with a special guest to chat all about prospecting.

Specifically, a certain type of prospecting that can help you clean up when it comes to landing clients.

How's it done?

Well let's just say it works even if you don't have a website, a reference, samples, or any experience.

Tom Gaddis

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.
