Shark Bites – Issue 249

Issue #249 | June 16th 2024

Aloha Shark and welcome to this special post-launch edition of Shark Bites!

As you likely know, we just finished the launch of our new course the Already Done Method.

So if you’re brand new to our shores, welcome! What you’re reading now is called “Shark Bites”—our weekly digest of some of the content we put out from Shark HQ each week.

Here you can find wins that other Sharks posted to our Facebook group. (Go to: and post using #win to share your wins.)

A weekly stash of content about local marketing. Replays of our weekly Live Show. And more! So be sure to check back every week for anything you may have missed.

And with that out of the way, let’s dive into this round of Shark Bites

Catch 2

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

Up first, an article on a topic we don’t often talk about: Copywriting. Truth is, most or all of the copywriting you need to do for an agency could (and probably should) be outsourced.

That said, if you find yourself doing it yourself right now or just want to learn more about how to make ads work, then this article about using simple headlines can help.

Next, another topic we don’t cover too often: YouTube. YouTube is one of those things that if you want to use it, it can be a hugely helpful tool to growing your business. (Or your client’s business.)

But that said, not everyone in local marketing needs to use it. But if it is something you’re interested in, then you may want to know about the new feature YouTube is rolling out that lets you A/B test thumbnails.

On this week’s Aloha Friday Local Marketing Jam Session I sat down with guest, Richie Cronin, to discuss:

                    The Business-Changing Magic Of Productizing Your Services

Every week we go live for the Aloha Friday Local Marketing Jam Session, aka “The Weekly Live Show”. 

This is like a local marketing variety show where we dedicate each session to a single topic. But go through multiple recurring segments.

These segments include Shark Shoutouts, Q&A, trivia (where we give away cash prizes), and more. 

This week we chatted about productizing services.

Which is a very powerful strategy that makes both selling and fulfilling services much, much easier.

Tom Gaddis

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.
