Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Internet Marketing doesn't have to be a shot in the dark. Most people pay money to some advertising company and hope that it works. Those days are gone - or should be. The internet enables you to reach very specific customers that are already looking for your product or services. You just have to connect the dots. We will help you identify your customers, find out what they are truly looking for, and then deliver it to them. You do NOT have to spend a fortune to be successful on the internet.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. We can show you results very quickly and work within your budget. You don't have to spend thousands of dollars with a large company that makes promises to get results "soon". When done right, Internet Marketing is the most controllable and effective marketing available today. And we'll show you how to maximize your marketing by capturing customers for life-not just one click! We are also experts in social networking and can create a Facebook campaign that will turbo charge your marketing efforts.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. We get to pick the projects we work on to make sure we make an impact. We will not take on a project that is not likely to be a success for both our customers and ourselves. We have more of a joint venture mentality and especially enjoy taking mom and pop businesses to the next level. The impact is very quick and our customers businesses are transformed.
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. What does it cost and how do I know it will work? There's no one answer as every business is unique, but we can show you daily, weekly, monthly and yearly results so you know what return you are getting on your valuable marketing dollars. We can start with a small budget and ramp it up as the results come in and you become more confident in our custom designed campaigns. When done right, internet marketing is trackable and controllable. You can make changes as you go BEFORE spending a lot of money. You spend a little upfront to test, test and retest. Once you've got it dialed in, you turn up the power and watch the money roll in. It's quite amazing how controllable it is.
Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?
A. The most frequent questions I get from business owners are related to SEO (search engine optimization) and PPC (Pay-Per-Click) marketing. I've heard countless horror stories from business owners that are burnt on SEO & PPC. The story typically goes something like this…
"I invested $3000 to have a website built, paid some marketing firm another $3000 for SEO and then ran up another $1000 per month in PPC campaigns. And that was just in the first 3 months. And I can't even tell you how much business was actually generated for me, but I know it didn't even come close to covering my investment." Read the full article at http:www.WEBfluence.Info
Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?
A. I actually fell into it when I was trying to take my Real Estate business to the next level. I paid thousands of dollars for a real estate marketing and coaching program. It was worth every penny! But once I realized how powerful internet marketing was, and what it could do for small businesses, I knew very quickly that what I was learning could be applied to almost any business. Now I'm exiting real estate all together to help other small business owners demystify internet marketing. I know what it's like to be a small business owner with a relatively small budget. And I know what it's like to get burnt by advertising companies that do not deliver. I saw an opportunity to support my family and make a real difference in others lives and there's no looking back. I LOVE INTERNET MARKETING!
Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.
A. I'm currently working on a large, nationwide project (small business owner) that will help Newlyweds build a strong foundation for their marriage. As a married man, who has a wonderful marriage and knows first hand the challenges Newlyweds are faced with today, I'm very proud to be a part of this project. We're getting ready to roll out a huge marketing campaign that will reach millions of people on a modest budget. I can't wait until the launch.
Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?
A. I'm almost always in a coaching program of some sort. I've been coached by some very successful Internet Marketers known around the globe including Greg Clement, Jeff Walker, Trey Smith and Frank Kern, just to name a few. I'm currently working on a project to offer software creation and marketing to business owners. That's right! Software! This includes applications for mobile devices like iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry and also Mac and Windows applications. This is the future. And it's accessible to the small business owner too, if you know the right people. And I do.
