Aloha Shark! 

Welcome back to Shark Bites.

This week we hosted a very special training all about using AI + Automation to rake in recurring revenue clients like crazy. 

The link to check out the training is below (it will be up until tomorrow only). 

But in the meantime, 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…”

  • Up first, a small (but mighty) win by Ean Willis. This one, a GBP optimization for one of his wing chun students (a type of kung fu). $315 recurring ain’t bad! Especially if it leads to more opportunities down the line. Great job Ean!
  • Next, Justin Simon closes a deal worth $4,500 over the course of 3 months. That is not too shabby at all! Nice job Justin and keep them coming.
  • And last but not least, Remote Millionaire, Bill Stanley closed a HUGE project management contract for a whopping $14,000. It took him 5 years to land this deal… but I’d say it was worth it (especially if they keep coming back for more).

Well that was a light week of wins as far as they usually go.

But with Bill’s win, we still had a big revenue number for the month. 

So please, write in your wins (no matter how big or small).

If you’d like to write in your wins, you can do so inside of the Remote Marketing Agency Owners Private Facebook Group. Remember to use “#win” so we can feature you in next week’s “Catch of the Week”.

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

Have you ever noticed a sudden drop on one of your keyword rankings? If so, there are some common culprits. And there is a right way to investigate exactly what is going on.

And Google’s Gary Illyes recently spilled the beans on what to do if you see a sudden keyword ranking drop.

This is an interesting article and worth reading if you use any sort of SEO. Because you never know when your ranking might drop and you’ll want to know what to do about it.

Next up, more Google goodness. This one about Google’s April 2023 Reviews Update. Spoiler alert: User experience is a huge factor.

This is a trend that has only been growing with Google and search. It’s ALL about user experience (that’s also true in every other part of your business too).

On this week’s Aloha Friday Local Marketing Jam Session, we talked all about landing a specific type of client.

Restaurant clients to be exact.

We love restaurant clients for a few reasons.

First of all, there are a lot of them out there. And the people who own restaurants usually don’t want to worry about marketing.

Which means they are HUNGRY for someone like you to help them. 

Beyond that, getting restaurant clients good results is easier than you might think.

And that’s because EVERYONE loves food. And everyone has to eat.

So it’s one of the simplest things on planet Earth to sell.

Anyway, if you want to watch the replay of the Live Show, you can do so here:

Starting Soon...

Like I said at the beginning, this week we did a training all about using AI + Automation to land recurring revenue clients at $500+ a pop.

The beauty of doing it the way we revealed is that it is very scalable.

Which means 1 client… and 10 clients… takes about the same amount of work.

So once you get good at bringing in clients…

You can expand your income over time without expanding your workload.

It’s almost magical.

And it’s all revealed on the free training below.

The training will be up until Tomorrow, Monday, April 17th at Midnight Pacific.

Well, that’s all for now.

Thanks again for being here on this Sunday evening (or whenever you’re reading this) to be part of this round of Shark Bites.

By the way, you probably noticed that recently we’ve been talking more about AI.

And one of the reasons is because we’ve been working on a secret strategy that uses AI to find you a Client Goldmine.

It works very, very well.

And I can’t wait to share it with you.

That will be ready 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.
