Hi. My name is Tom Gaddis and I’m a full time local business consultant in Hawaii.
Providing marketing services to local businesses allows me to live a pretty sweet life. I get to work from home, spend as much time with family as I want and the work is rewarding.
But before you get jealous, let me share a secret with you…
It wasn’t so easy when I arrived here from Oklahoma. In fact I damn near
quit out of frustration and lack of clients …and lack of money.
I was determined to build a local marketing business and leave my restaurant career behind.
My # 1Problem was getting my foot in the door and offering something that got the owner’s attention.
Much of what is usually offered to Local businesses either is too complicated or takes too long.
I knew I had great advertising products like the direct mail card system, but who cares if I couldn’t get an appointment?
I bought just about every product I could find trying to find that perfect service that would breakdown prospects doors and allow me to START a relationship with them.
The problem was that most local businesses just didn’t get what I was talking about.
Listen I tried everything:
** I tried 'educating' potential clients
** I tried offering whatever was hot at the time
** I tried cold calling (only time i ever 'froze' in Hawaii)
** I tried running ads online
** I tried running ads offline
** I tried daily Social Media
** I even tried offering services free hoping for upsells
I ended up spending my time working my butt off for free and didn't get any new clients!
About that time, I met Nick Ponte.
Nick was also struggling with getting his offline consulting business off the ground and fighting the same battles.
We decided to compare notes and realized the SOLUTION was right in front of us ...
The Businesses OWN websites!
We discovered almost NO Businesses are happy with their website results – NONE!
We knew there had to be a way to turn this to our advantage.
We both tested and experimented and FINALLY designed a BETTER WAY to ‘crack the doors wide open’ by aiming at the HEART of their problem
So, we started offering AUDITS of their web sites and showed them how to get more customers, build their brand and make money 24/7 off their site.
Here's what's so cool, we almost never failed when we said,
"You already paid good money for a website, NOW lets make it produce"...
By the way, in the training we show you how to apply this 'can't miss' presentation so the doors really do open wide.
For a change you'll be treated like a welcome guest, not another salesman.
These simple to do website Audits were an INSTANT SUCCESS!
Local businesses LOVE the information they get from these audits, and it makes it almost effortless to provide other services for them… once they see how revealing the audits are!
Today we don’t do any other marketing services until the client has hired us to do an audit.
No longer do we waste time trying to sell the same services every other local consultant is pitching.
Now clients pay us to tell them what services they need!
