Issue #199 | July 2nd, 2023

Aloha Shark! 

And welcome back to this special July-themed edition of Shark Bites.

Not only that, but this week marks one week away from the glorious Issue 200!

And to celebrate, we’re going to do something special.

Which is a BIG giveaway with 200 prizes.

Below are some images with the information.

And more information can be found in the Facebook post I made about it which you can find by clicking this link.

We hope you will enter and have as much fun with it as we are.

And with that out of the way… let’s dive right in… 


[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, Richie writes in with a nice $1,282 win for an award entry submission to the New Zealand Tourism Awards. Cool!
  • Next, Kurt Schlichting let us know about a HUGE revenue raise. This time an increase in $15,600 for an SEO contract. (Speaking of SEO… scroll to the bottom of this page for a free training on using AI to make SEO a whole lot easier.)
  • Last but not least, Theresa Simpson Key lands her FIRST EVER CLIENT for $1,700. Great job Theresa and we’re so proud of you!

Well there you have it.

Remember, as part of the Shark Bites 200 Contest, you can win a year in Shark Alliance Elite PLUS more… just by sharing a #Win in the Remote Marketing Agency Owners Private Facebook Group. See above for all the details.

Catch 2

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

Since we’ve been talking all about SEO this week… I figured I’d share this article about what Google’s John Mueller says about Semantic HTML.

(That said, if you want to speed up the process using AI… scroll to the bottom of this page for a free training on how to do that.)

Semantic HTML: Not A Ranking Factor But Still Important

Next up, another Google focused article. This one about how Google may be overcharging advertisers. In fact, the Wall Street Journal found that 80% of YouTube ads could be violating terms of service.

If that interest you, check it out here:

This week’s Aloha Friday Local Marketing Jam Session was a special one.

Because on it, Nick sat down with a special guest and did a LIVE DEMO optimization of his agency site using AI.

This is really cool and not something we usually do on the Live Shows.

It shows you both SEO best practices and of course how to leverage AI to make it all easy and quick.

The best part is, once your agency site is optimized… 

It can bring you high-quality clients for months and years to come. 

The replay is up now and you can find it here:

In case you missed it:

Right now we have a free replay all about using AI to make SEO much quicker and much easier.

AI is something that is only going to become more common and more important.

You don’t have to fear AI.

But you shouldn’t ignore it either.

And I think this training is both a great way to learn more about the powers of AI and to learn how to use it to fulfill a very profitable and high-ticket service. 

The replay of this training will be up until Tomorrow, Monday, July 3rd at Midnight Pacific.

You can watch it now right 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.
