Can I refer local business owners to you? If so, I need a link to your business site...

40 replies
One June 1, we are launching a new series for local business owners in video format that will walk them step by step how to market their business effectively online. I can tell you that a certain percentage of these business owners will grow frustrated with attempting to do it themselves and will want help.

I'm putting together a list of local/regional businesses who can help them with their approach if/when they decide to opt out and have someone do all of this for them. We will have our hands full with this project and do not want to leave a business owner who needs real help without options.

If you would like to be added to my referral list, please IM me with your information and it will be listed on the following page... Click Here

Thank you. Greg

For more information on what we are doing and how you can participate, feel free to IM me with any interest that you may have. G

      We are excited about it, but there are a few missing components that will ensure our success, and one is a network of options for those that want real support locally. Let me know if you want us to add your link. Greg

        I would love to be on your referral list. However, I live in Asia in the Philippines, so my local clients would come from here. I do SEO for clients living or have businesses in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia - they are online clients.

        Maybe if your clients need link variety or boost from time to time, my team and I may be able to support you.

        Tell me your thoughts...

          Send me your link with your location and I'll add it. Although the video series will be marketed by us in the US, there's no telling how far it will expand. Would be happy to include your information. Greg

          I have added your site. No reason not to expect this approach to expand beyond the US. Thanks. Greg

    You may not want to just limit it to online resources. Many local businesses could benefit greatly from mediums such as direct mail.

    While being on the front of google, and having an active facebook page, and getting recurring from text messages to existing customers are all 25x more effective than being burried in the yellowpages. Direct mail can do something all of those things can't do.

    Reach the prospects that don't yet have a clue that their life would be better with (insert local service) so they havn't even started looking yet.

    Google catches those that realize they have a need and go looking...but that group of people is just a fraction of the potential customers within reach of (insert local business) If you could get to those people now you could help create a customer sooner than the 5 years it would have taken for them to figure it out on their own.
    If you want to get to everyone else, direct mail is probably the best way to get it done...and really, it doesn't cost anymore than the yellowpages. Consistent direct mail can be used to educate the public, keep the name fresh in peoples minds, and position (insert local business) as the authority. Obviously the Yellowpages can't do that...but neither can being on the front of Google.

    I like what your doing and would love to be involved if you made a place for a postcard guy

      I would be happy to make a place for a PostCard guy. I want each of you to know that I'm sincere in putting this together. Once I have the links in place, I will continue to update them and expand on them in order to give people a clear picture of what to expect when they contact you. Send me your info. and I will include your link. Greg

      I don't know how to answer that question other than to say this. If you'll go to the page and look at the companies that are already listed, you'll get a feel for what we are looking for. Best of luck to you. Greg
