Issue #229 | January 28th 2024

Welcome to this issue of Shark Bites!

This week we had another great week as we round the corner into February. Which is a good time to sit back and ask yourself… have you made progress on the goals you set for 2024?

Heck—have you even taken the time to set some goals?

If not, now is the time to do it.

So focus down. Take some action steps. And then let’s dive into this round of Shark Bites

catch of the week 3
  • To kick things off with this recap of some of the best wins of 2023… we’ll start off with Adam. Who landed a client with the classic foot in the door offer leading to a recurring revenue deal. That’s why we chose this as a best of 2023—to highlight the importance of this strategy. 
  • Next, Kathy Mason with a HUGE $29,6000 deal… woah that’s a good one. Don’t need many of those to start adding up.
  • Next, postcard expert, Scott Mizener, had a ton of big wins. Including… mailing more than 1 MILLION postcards. Way to go. Plus add on to that some a new record profit… and that’s the way to get it done.
  • Last but not least, Dan used the video audit strategy he learned from “The Norminator” to close a front end deal with more on the way.

So those were some of the wins we wanted to highlight from 2023. Truth is, NO win is too small to celebrate. So be sure to begin writing in your wins starting 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”.

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.
