I woke up this morning and decided to start a mission to save digital marketing and spread the the truth to small business owners.
I have had enough of hearing from one business owner after another that they’ve been fed lies and BS by the account managers of the digital agencies they employee to guide them to online marketing success.
Business owners tell me the same things all the time:
- Once we partnered I never heard from them again
- I don’t even know if they did anything
- After twelve months I am still on page three
- They send me reports that I don’t understand
- I didn’t get a single lead, let a lone a sale
- Nothing they told me, made an ounce of sense
- On and on, they go with horror stories
You see the truth is while your account manager has a duty of care and responsibility to do the right thing; it’s not completely their fault. They don’t even know their doing the wrong thing; because the owners of the agencies training them also don’t know.
People start businesses in the online marketing industry because they thing all we do is change a few words on a page and make a ton of money. They are sales focused first and customer focused second.
I have had enough of it. It is giving my awesome industry a bad name; businesses that could do sensationally well online are being led to believe that digital doesn’t work. Which is a real shame because online marketing is the most incredible thing that’s happened to business since the press, radio and the TV.
Implemented correctly! it’s the most effective and lowest cost way to acquire a large number of new customers fast.
There are great digital consultants!
The good news is there are experts around that do this because they love it; they love turning a simple brochure website into a leads and sales producing machine.
They have passion for their clients results first and making money that comes from that is second. Guess what the best guys that think like this eventually end up the richest from what I’ve seen. They get acquired by bigger businesses for ten’s of millions.
I am one of those guys (not that got acquired for millions); but the joy for me is producing a result for my client.
I am on a mission to spread the truth about online marketing in 3 forms:
- Articles, Video’s, and Live Education
- Coaching, Consulting and Mastermind
- Real World Examples of What Works
Producing incredible results on the internet with a small budget is not easy; however it is possible if you know what you’re doing.
The agencies that have these $300 a year or even $500 a month campaigns are leading you down a garden path though its a scam run away. How much of an experts time do you think you actually get for $500 a month.
Make no mistake this is an expert field that takes years of toil and continuous education to implement campaign that produce profitable results 99% of the time.
However a couple of thousand dollars a month to a few thousand dollars a month can do incredible things for your business. Providing the person doing the work knows how to use the budget properly.
If your a small or even a medium business and you think you might be on the garden path to nowhere fast. Please give me a call for a one hour no obligation consultation; we’ll go right through what’s been happening on the phone call together, what your objectives were and what results have been achieved and if you are in fact being cheated; I will help you get things turned around.
Digital marketing is an incredible field;
There are many excellent highly skilled intelligent consultants that can help you do amazing things for your business;
Over the last few months there have been more business people than normal in the academies and business clubs I belong too reporting bad experiences they’ve had with agencies so I decided to write this post.
I believe this is part due to Google recent updates that had major impact on many businesses;
However even major Google updates won’t stop a great digital marketing consultant from ensuring you have a steady consistent supply of targeted leads coming in and keeping your business on track to hit your objectives.
He or she will help you prevail no matter what happens in the space; they are dynamic individuals that understand the online environment from A-Z; therefore will be able to help you traverse the web sphere to success in every kind of climate.
Happy web marketing
