Issue #216 | October 29th, 2023

Aloha Shark!

And welcome to issue 216 of Shark Bites.

There I am above with Shark, Randy Bett, enjoying his birthday celebration! It’s always fun hanging with the Sharks—and it’s always a reminder that life is about a LOT more than just business.

Business is important no doubt.

But your business should be used to fuel everything else in your life.

Not the other way around.

And to help you get more out of your business and your life, let’s dive into this round of Shark Bites…

catch of the week 2
  • Up first, Remote Millionaire, Brandon Stewart hit us with a NEW CLIENT ALERT. This one for a whole host of projects worth $2,400… with $600 of that monthly recurring revenue. Nice!
  • Then, Brandon Stewart is at it again with a REACH win. This time getting a whopping 61% open rate on 2,300 cold emails. That is GREAT for anyone who’s ever done cold email outreach.
  • Next up, Remote Millionaire, Cyril, upsold a site speed optimization client to an SEO client for a cool $1,500. Great job.
  • Then, Remote Millionaire, FletcherHorton, signed an e-com website management client at $800 per month.
  • And last but not least, Joanne Smith landed her own dentist for a cool $2,000+ gig… just by asking a simple question after one of her checkups. That’s the way to do it!

There goes another great week of wins. Thanks to everyone who wrote in this week!

Catch 2

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

Up first, Google recently announced some new AI features for Google Maps. As you likely know, Google Maps is very important for all sorts of local businesses.

So it’s important to stay up to date on the latest coming from the Google Maps team.

And this new update brings some cool features—such as visual search results with photos for thematic searches such as “animal latte art”.

So there is some potential there for new services to offer your clients. If you want to read more about it, you can do so here:

Up next, Google Performance Max also now has a “themed” search feature. These themes are designed to provide topics and categories to guide Google’s AI system.

Which has the end goal of bringing your sites more relevant traffic.

On this week’s Aloha Friday Local Marketing Jam Session we went live for:

How To Use Networking To Grow Your Revenue Each Month… Even If You're An Introvert And Know Nobody Right Now

This episode was all about networking.

Now networking may not be the flashiest or the coolest topic in the world. But it is quite frankly one of the most important.

Because networking is absolutely the fastest way to land clients…

And to grow through strategic partnerships, word of mouth, and more.

(Just think back to before when we talked about how Joanne Smith landed her own dentist as a client. That’s a form of networking.)

That’s why I spent a whole Live Show talking about this topic.

And if you want to hear my advice on how to network even if you’re an introvert and have no contacts now, you can found out more in the replay here:

What are smart coupons?

They are coupons that come with some major advantages. And one of the major advantages is that they are completely online and highly-automated.

Which saves you time.

Gives your clients better results.

And quite frankly makes it much more profitable for the both of you.

This was a great training and is perfect for anyone looking to add a stream of recurring revenue and open up a new source of clients.

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.
