updated on Monday 3:45 - fixed links and download

My offline is going great !!!! In less than 3 weeks I have turned my finances around from broke to seeing a future with marketing.

This strategy is what landed me over $6800 in the last 3 weeks, since writing my post about Needing to make it work. I am sharing it with no optin required.

I did not start this strategy without any knowledge of marketing - i.e. I've been selling online for 10 years (on and off) but switched to learn SEO and website building. This money is completely from offline marketing.

I presented this information ONE TIME to local businesses, and got all of this work just in the last 2.5 weeks (work which I am doing on a completely chilled out "few hours a day" schedule).

This is for your personal use only, no other rights included.

Newbies -read these forums, do your research - this stuff works if you work it your own way and don't give up.

Anyway, the information is available at local search pro nm dot com / ?p=387 LOCAL BUSINESS GUIDE | Web Sites, SEO & Social Marketing for Small Business

Update: Saturday Jan 29 - Just added another document about remembering your website visitors are not clicks, they are human! I will be sharing with my customers at the next workshop so I put it in the downloads.

HOW I USED THEM:
So, there are 2 guides in the download. I wrote the "Internet Marketing" overview to just print out and give to local businesses when I went in to their stores. This let me invite them to a workshop that I offered, free, to teach them more about using the internet for their local business.

Then at the workshop, I gave them the address to download the larger "Google" guide which I wrote as well. This shows them step by step why and how to use Google places.

Of course, by the time I walked them through a live demo of using google places in the workshop (just took the out from my computer into a projector), they realized that it is a little more involved than they want to deal with.

Very good feedback from the attendees, and very good results from that one workshop.

I'll be setting up an email series that goes into more detail, so if you want to sign up, please feel free.

Remember, the download is for your own personal use only. No rights otherwise.


NO SIGN UP NEEDED TO GET THE GUIDE
of course, I appreciate signups if you want more info. as I develop my plan.

          kudos! most people get stuck because they try a couple of things and don't
          strike it rich immediately. but when you try a couple more, and a couple more, you can't help but eventually figure some things out, and soon you're the expert everyone else is looking to for advice.

    Hi thanks for your offer and your inspiring story.

    Its a bit funny. your old thread had a lot of naysayers jumping in giving you reasons as to why you should avoid doing any IM. yet you have gone out there and crushed it. thats amazing.

    I will look through your pdfs and await further info you will send out

    Anne, WOW, thank you for this information – it’s very inspirational to know you’ve earned $6,800 so quickly – knowing I could surly have similar results as I’m in a more populated area.

    Do you know when you'll be sharing the step-by-step's of how you put on the workshop? I'm interested to know how you went about inviting the people to the workshop – and also, what day of the week was it on, and time of day? That might just help me since if you did it on a Saturday for example, I should try that first.

    Thanks again, and are people open to your prices, do you think you could eventually charge more for your services?

    Thank you,
    Tracy Moore

    Anne, nice stuff, and thanks for sharing. Question: Did your one hour workshop only deal with Google Places? I think the workshop idea is terrific, it gives value first before any type of selling is done. That makes the positioning that much better. Much better positioning than cold calling or trying to sell SEO, etc. by "dropping by" the business. Keep us posted on progress.

    Anne, thanks so much for your contribution. You are the perfect example of taking action! Congratulations and I'm very happy to hear things are going well and moving forward for you. I also compliment you for sharing your story and resources to everyone here at the forum for free. During a time when you were struggling financially, you took the action needed to resolve your situation and on top of that, have been kind enough to freely provide information here that you could have bundled up and sold as a WSO to further help your finances.

    I signed up and look forward to checking out your resources and applying them to my own ongoing efforts.

    John above found that the 3rd file had http:// twice for him, after signing up I went back to that page and for me clicking on the link I found there was no colon in the http//. So if that's the case for you obviously just add the colon in between http and the // =p

      Anne,

      Congrats on taking action.

      Since my signature is all about taking action, I think I am going to start going to start officially awarding the "TE2 Taking Action" award from this point on.

      So Anne, I now bestow upon you my very first such award.

      Congratulations on this supreme (and soon to be highly coveted and sought after) honor.

      Regards,

      John

      ps - Don't stop now!

    Well done Anne,

    What you're doing should work for most people.

    There's so much focus on ROI and trying to get paying customers right away that many people don't spend enough time on the relationships to start with.

    Some of my best customers (over $10k a month) started as people I helped for free.

    Keep up the great work and keep those relationships strong - don't be afraid to ask for referrals and testimonials.

    Andy

    Anne,

    What an inspiring post. I'd love to hear more about the presentation you gave and even the equipment needed for a presentation using powerpoint etc. I think my local library lets people give free talks but I don't believe they have a setup with a projector. Do you think handouts with screenshots can be used instead if you are in a setting that won't have media?

      Anne - so glad that you have turned things around for the positive, and in such a short time. Kudos to you for taking everyone's suggestions to heart and applying them to work for your background and situation. You're one tough cookie - way to hang in there girl!

      I work with sharing soft-sell ways for my offline clients to improve their businesses and offering free workshops is a perfect example. You gave them something of great value for free and they responded positively by hiring you for additional services.

      Congratulations on soft selling your way to success! I signed up for your mailing, looking forward to staying in touch! Betty

    You are a hero and a champion Anne and an inspiration to us all.

    You took the bull by the horns, and did not behave as a sheep looking to be prodded by a shepard , or begging someone to give you a "job"... you grabbed the bull by the CAHONES when your back was against the wall and took control of your own situation, and hunted like a LION!!

    My hats off to you, I bow to you, and say "thank you" for being an ambassador of "greatness"... and a shining example to all of those who have their back against the wall and need to get their nerve up and CREATE a solution as of YESTERDAY !

    read these forums, do your research - this stuff works if you work it your own way and don't give up.
    Oh so true! This forum has so many examples of success stories in a multitude of methods for making money online or consulting with brick and mortar businesses to help them use the internet to their advantage. You must indeed do things your own way. You know what you can handle and what you cannot handle. The more you know about yourself, then the better the decision you will make about HOW you will make money with the internet. If you know you don't want to do cold calling, then find the alternative. If you love meeting face to face with people then find a way. If you cannot stomach the thought of meeting people, calling them, or even emailing them, then find your own way to make money without any human contact. Those methods exist as well.

    Congratulations on your success and thank you for sharing your method.
