Issue #230 | February 4th 2024

Welcome to this issue of Shark Bites!

It’s officially February Shark! Which makes this the first February edition of Shark Bites for the year. 

With winter almost gone and spring on the way, it’s time to buckle down and make some SERIOUS progress on your goals.

After all, once spring has sprung…

And the sun is shining on the green grass, it will be much harder to stay inside and work. 

That’s why I’m going to help you make some progress in this episode of Shark Bites

catch of the week 1
  • First up, Brandon Stewart flips a nagging complainer into a client! Read his post because it’s really good. But long story short, someone started out calling him a scam… and after a short phone call, ended up paying him $297 for a premium AGM listing. Lol! Great work Brandon, way not to get down about it.
  • Next, Curtis Burns lands a nice $1k + $200/month electrician client. That’s the way to do it!
  • Then we had a win in our agency that Nick talked about, when our sales rep upsold a client to a sweet $5k/month. This started as a $1k/month client… which just shows the power of upsell marketing.
  • Last but not least, Jerry Wright hit a big $2,350 website client. Nice one Jerry!

Another great week is in the bag. Please write in your wins this coming week—no win is too small!

Catch 2

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

Yet again, we’re starting with Google news. This time Google confirmed an indexing issue that’s affecting some websites. 

Now obviously ranking is HUGE for many local clients. And even just a little bit of time not ranking could affect their revenue for the month. 

So if you’ve noticed a site you care about not ranking, this could be the cause.

Next: More website issues. This time a WordPress vulnerability that is affecting nearly 1 million websites. 

This is something that is always worth staying up to date on if you use WordPress for yourself or your clients. If you want to see what’s going on, read this article here:

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

                                                       Local Marketing MythBusters

This was with co-host, Richie Cronin. And on it, we chatted all about the most important local marketing myths. And the REAL, up-to-date information you need to thrive.

This is perfect no matter what stage you’re at.

Because it’s never too early to do things the right way. And if you’re more experienced, chances are good you’re falling victim to at least one of these myths.

Before I go, one last thought:

Like I said up top, this marks the first Shark Bites of February. Which means, we’re 1/12th through the year.

Have you made it 1/12th through your goals yet?

If not, it’s time to step on the gas.

Get to it. 

And I’ll be rootin for ya.

Talk 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.
