Aloha Shark! 

And welcome to this round of Shark Bites.

We had another great week at Shark HQ with a lot of good wins coming in from our Sharks and Remote Millionaires.

On a side note, I recently went to the “Fantasy Lab” here in Vegas which is where that picture above is from.

Even though that’s just a silly picture, there’s a lot of truth to it.

And to help you get to the other side of fear, let’s dive into this round of Shark Bites

Catch

[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, Remote Millionaire, Adam Van Duene writes in with a whole host of wins. He had a chiro client come back for more work. An order for a logo for a youth baseball team. And 2 websites (one coming from a referral). Great work Adam!
    • Next, Remote Millionaire, Tim Palmer added a nice $850 in monthly recurring revenue with a website + SEO package. That’s how it’s done.
    • Then Donna Norris let us know she sold another Home Services Jackpot website… (More info on that strategy here: https://www.homeservicesjackpot.com)
    • Next, Remote Millionaire, Scott Sandoz signed a BIG 3-month contract for $5,000+ a percentage of sales. What a cool deal!
    • Last but not least, Shelly Ward is feeling blessed because her first recurring invoice ever has been paid. Many more to come Shelley!

    What a great week! We are so happy and proud of everyone who wrote in with a win.

    If you’d like to write in your wins and be featured, 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”.

Catch 2

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

First up, an article that is about a topic close to our heart: PPC ads. We love PPC ads for many reasons.

First of all, it is a great service to give you recurring revenue. And second of all, PPC ads give a great value to your clients. 

So not only can you get paid big bucks for it… but you can get paid big bucks for it for years and years to come.

Next: Google news.

This time about a leaked Google memo that admits defeat at the hands of Open Source AI (the people behind ChatGPT).

This article isn’t local marketing focused.

But since we recently released AI Client Goldmine, I figured this may be an interesting article to share.

Long story short is that Google is scared at what Open Source AI can do. But… they have a plan to regain their market share.

On this week’s Aloha Friday Local Marketing Jam Session, we talked all about leads…

The truth is that if you can get good at bringing in lots of high-quality leads, there is no end to how far you can scale your agency.

Think of it like gas in the car.

The more gas you put in… the farther you can go.

If you have no gas… you won’t go anywhere.

Anyway, we revealed a whole lot about the art of landing high-quality leads. And you can catch the replay here:

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.
