Thank you to everyone who participated! We will be in touch this week to arrange delivery of your prizes.


[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, Ash Butler got a payment for a “nice and easy 4-page website”. That results in a tidy sum of $890—and all for customizing one of our pre-built Home Services Jackpot templates. Great work Ash. (For more info on this strategy, head here:
  • Next, Jennifer Conner writes in with some wins on Upwork. In fact, even though she’s new, these wins amounted to $1,625 + a $1,500 per month retainer. Great work Jennifer!
  • Then we have Remote Millionaire, “The Norminator”, landing an $1,800 per month SEO + GBP package. 
  • And Sandy Alexander who closed a social media client for $154 a month.
  • And last but certainly not least, Kurt Schlichting is having a GREAT week. Hitting the HUGE milestone of $45,600 in revenue… in the past 6 days. Wow!

Another great week! And a huge thanks to 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.

Next week we are hosting a free training with “The Queen of AI” about using AI to boost sales… save you time and money… and scale your agency.

And because of this, I figured I’d share this article about the new GPT-4 expansion and what that means for AI-powered apps. Hint: They are only getting more powerful by the day. 

If you want to read more about it, here’s the link:

You may have heard that Elon Musk and Zuckerberg have been beefing lately. And most recently, Elon is threatening a lawsuit over Zuckerberg’s new “Threads” app.

Now truth be told, this probably won’t affect you too much. But it is an interesting topic and if you want to learn more about it, this article is where it’s at:

On this week’s Aloha Friday Local Marketing Jam Session, I sat down with some of our most successful Remote Millionaires, to chat:

Consistency and Accountability.

These are not the flashiest of topics of course.

But in reality, they are among the most important topics.


Because Consistency and Accountability are two things you NEED to succeed. 

Without these two things, it doesn’t matter how much skill you have or if you pick the perfect strategy. If you don't have consistency in putting the strategy into action…

You’re dead in the water.

To see our best tips to stay consistent, watch the replay here:

Well, there you have it.

Issue 200 has come and gone.

And before you know it, Issue 300 will be here.

(Live Show #200 will be a lot sooner and I’m sure we will plan something special for that too.)

So allow me to say a HUGE thank you for reading.

Whether this is your first Weekly Recap or you’ve read all 200—you are the reason we do what we do.

Thanks again.

And I’ll talk to you 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.
