Issue #219 | November 19th, 2023

Aloha Shark!

And welcome to issue 219 of Shark Bites.

This week in the US we celebrate Thanksgiving! Which means, tons of Turkey, time with the family, and some good old American Football.

No matter where you are in the world or what you celebrate, take this week to remember what you're thankful for.

Personally, I’m thankful for a whole lot.

And one of the things I am most thankful for is all the Sharks out there.


I’m not just saying that. I really mean it. Because this is one of the most supportive communities on the internet.

And not a day goes by that I don’t see Sharks giving help, giving support, giving encouragement, and more.

So a big old THANK YOU on this lovely Turkey Week.

And without further ado, let’s dive into this round of Shark Bites

catch of the week 2
  • Up first, Kurt Schlichting wrote in with a nice $297 sale from Review Pops. Plus, potentially more work on the way. That’s how to sell a foot-in-the-door service.

  • Next, Jacqueline Heath landed a nice $815 client making a brochure + website for a marine welding company. Great job and keep them coming Jacqueline.

  • And last but not least, Sam Raman won a $1,500 per month social media client… but also broke his femur. Ouch! At least the $1,500 per month will ease the pain. Good job and hope you get better soon!

    That’s all for this week! 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.

To start, a little shanty about some new Instagram features that could help make your content more compelling.

Now I know not everyone uses Instagram.

But a lot of people do use it as a way to find and attract clients… as a way to build authority… and some people even sell Instagram management as a service.

So if you fall into any of those categories or you just want to get the skinny on the new features, you can do so here:

Instagram Adds New Ways To Create Content

Next up: YouTube recently released some new rules for AI-created content. This is something that will only continue to become more and more important.

And even if you don’t use AI content now… or you’re not on YouTube…

It never hurts to keep your finger on the pulse for what’s happening with AI in this industry.

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

Automation VS Outsourcing: Which Wins In The Local Marketing Cage Match???

This Live Show was of the “local marketing cage match” variety.

Which means, our two competitors—Automation & Outsourcing—went head to head to see who rules the world of local marketing.

Only kidding!

As I’m sure you know, both automation and outsourcing have a role to play.

So it’s not “which is better”… it’s “how can you use both for maximum profit and gain.”

And if you want to know the answer, then be sure to tune into the replay which is available by going here:

Thanks for tuning into this round of Shark Bites.

Before I let you go, I should tell you about what we have going on this week.

Which is Bob Ross’s NEW course “Google Review Cards Secrets And Mastery”.

If you don’t know, Bob Ross is one of our closest friends up in this biz.

In fact, Bob Ross was the one who got me started in local marketing—and I used a strategy I learned from him to land my first dozen+ clients in just a week.

And ever since then I’ve been a big supporter of Bob and his work.

This new course is no different.

It shows you how to get a steady stream of clients using a simple strategy based around reviews.

We’ll be telling you a whole lot more about it this week.

Stay tuned!

Upcoming Events

In case you missed it:

Right now we have a free replay of the training we did all about smart coupons.

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.

(This training even shows you how to land tons of clients using Groupon.)

The replay is coming down Tomorrow, Monday, October 2nd at Midnight Pacific.

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.
