Using Offline Gold? Try This Technique

by 0 comments
Hey Warriors,

Firstly, I don't deal with many offline businesses but I tried this the other night and it worked a treat and I then referred the business to a friend of mine. I tried it at a restaurant but it could work with any other business. Here goes...

- Pick a restaurant to eat at and search for it on Google. Take note if they have their own website or not. If NOT it is very likely that a local portal listing will come up for the restaurant (we have eatability here in au), if this is the case ...

- Take a look at the reviews for the restaurant, if they are mediocre you've got a good candidate.

- Go out for a meal at the restaurant and try to talk to the owner. In my experience most smaller sized restaurants will have the owner on premises. Have a chat with the owner but DO NOT put on the hard sell.

- Point out that you love the restaurant and you always bring friends but you know a lot of people who dont come because of the negative reviews. You'll have to use some finesse here so as not to insult the owner. As an example, i told him 'some of my friends didnt want to come because they read your restaurant was noisy, but Ive always thought of it as atmospheric' ... It doesnt have to make sense, just pad the owners ego.

- By this stage you can chat a little freely. Point out that the local portal is ranking #1 for their restaurant name in Google and this may be hurting their business because of a few negative reviews. Let them know that they could EASILY rank #1 for their own name if they had their own site.

- Bedazzle them with some IM 101 talk and then go in for the kill... You might even want to tell them that your friend makes websites (if you have a partner in your business) and that you can pass on the details. This way it doesn tlook like you set him up for the sting.

Ok, thats the jist of it. Essentially you want to tell them that some people have been saying bad things about them and you are the one who can help them set the record straight.

Hope this helps and happy hunting

    If you grew up and went to public school in North America, you know that the school system here is far from perfect. Kids have all different experiences, but one common thread is that everybody learns how to be an employee and not a manager. School isn’t just designed to teach you math, science and English, there are also lessons contained in the actual structure of school itself. When you hear the bell and it directs you to class, you’re learning to follow directions in a very Pavlovian fashion. You know that you can’t get caught in the hallways during class time, so you respond to the bell in order to avoid punishment. When you go into the classroom and sit in your spot in the row of desks and you know you’re not permitted to talk to other students and that the teacher has control of the class, you’re learning that your place in society is to quietly submit to authority.

    Just a quick question for you internet marketing gurus, or for those of you who have a bit of experience in marketing your own businesses. Which social media platform drives the most traffic to your website? Im obviously going to invest a bit of time and money in advertising my business through each of the main platforms, facebook, twitter, instagram etc. I was just wondering, more out of interest than anything (because as I said, I intend to utilize each platform to its max for my business) which of these social media platforms is responsible for the highest amount of visitors to your website?

    I was reflecting on some of the things I have been working on over the past few months since I have been doing IM full time and I thought it's been a massive learning curve but I am making some progress. I've done a few little things that have helped keep me focused now that I don't have the physical motivation of a boss and a workplace surrounding me to crack the whip so to speak when I get a little lost and unmotivated during my work day.

    Hey guys - I have a question that I've been thinking about a fair amount and wanted to discuss with all of you. SEO is one of the main areas of focus for internet marketing - there are a lot of people building websites and competing for search engine traffic. There is so much information out there about search engine optimization and you can virtually get lost for days trying to figure out what the best way is to promote your website or the product that you're selling through search engine rankings.
