Issue #245 | May 19th 2024

Welcome to Shark Bites!

Well I’m back in Vegas and things are returning to normal. Watching Sophie’s volleyball games. Going out to eat with the fam. And of course, working hard on growing the biz.

That’s what it’s all about. 

And to help you get more growth starting today, let's dive into this round of Shark Bites

catch of the week 2
  • Up first, Shark Alliance Member, Malik Ali, wrote in with some BIG wins. More than $5k in wins in fact with some recurring on the way. Nice work!
  • Next, Tony Edward wrote in letting us know he got 2 wins worth $1,750 per month collectively.
  • Then there’s the great, Zachary Smouse, who landed a $500 website build plus a $50 per month retainer. Good job Zach!
  • And last but not least, Sam Raman got a GREAT retainer worth $2,000 per month… for only 2 hours of work a week. Wow, that’s amazing!

What a great week! Thanks for everyone for writing in their wins. 

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.

Yet again… AI news (there seems to be a theme here eh?). This time about Google’s AI Overview in search… and whether or not it’s theft?

A court has ruled and the details about the case can be found here:

Google AI Overviews = Theft? Court Ruling Sets Precedent

Next… MORE AI news. This time about OpenAI and Reddit partnering to show Reddit content in ChatGPT. 

You may remember a while back I shared an article here about Google and Reddit partnering up on a similar deal.

And Reddit just seems to be becoming more and more of a go-to for content.

Anyway, if you’re interested, here’s the article to read more:

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

              How To Position Yourself To Profit Off Of 2024's Top Marketing Trends

This week, I sat down with Richie Cronin to chat about the future of local marketing.

As you know, we tend to stick to tried-and-true business strategies. Strategies that have worked for the past 100 years… and will work for 100 years more.


That’s no excuse to not keep your eye on the future and see what trends are coming that you can profit from.

If this interests you, here’s the link to check out the replay:

More stuff coming this week.

So keep your eyes peeled…

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.
