Make no mistake about it – I’m a local business owner just like you.
And…just like you I needed more phone calls, more leads and ultimately more business just to stay “in business”.
I tried print advertising, radio ads, TV commercials, direct mail, even the dreaded Yellow Pages – I tried them all, and the results were less than spectacular.
Actually I’m being nice; the results sucked – and I’m willing to bet you’ve had the exact same or similar experience.
I thought to myself; “what the hell DOES work?” – and I set out on a journey to get this “handled” in my business once and for all; no matter what – I was going to find a real source of leads, calls and more business from the internet if it killed me.
However, I’m not a gambling man so I hedged my business success by first getting a college degree and then every aircraft/pilot rating known to man – believing the jobs rated almanac (published in 1987) which said that “Airline Pilots Make $250K Per Year With 20 Days Off Per Month” – sounded like a dream job to me.
And a “J.O.B” it turned out to be (you’ve heard the saying, JOB stands for Just Over Broke) – so the day I got my first “flying” job I went to work building my real passion – which was having my own local business, with ME as the boss.
How Is My Business Just Like Yours?
I started by writing a “How To” book and began advertising in every medium possible; the results were a lot of cost and not a lot of profit – until…I got this hair brained idea to build a website in 1994 and begin selling my “book” online.
I started getting orders much to my amazement from all over the world – even more shocking was the fact that shipping my book worldwide was eating all of my profits (and more) because I hadn’t anticipated the cost of international shipping (yes, a rookie mistake).
Now, instead of shutting down my website until I could figure out international shipping rates I thought, why not just increase my price to some astronomical figure ($100+ at the time, for a book none the less) and that would certainly slow down orders until I could get the shipping costs figured out.
The orders kept coming in; even faster and much to my amazement people from all over the world were willing to pay $100+ for a book I wrote on “How To Start Your Own Business” – pretty ironic how I wrote a book on something I hadn’t really done myself, however it was working and I was using the internet as my only advertising source.
I Found Success And Then Sold Out…
I began making other offers to my customer list and from that created a wholesale products company (yes, a real world physical products company) with a massive online membership and multiple U.S. locations which I eventually sold in 1996 for 7 figures; and at the same time I retired from commercial airline flying forever, promising myself that I’ll never “work” again.
Retirement lasted a year – then I got bored (hey I was only 38 years old at the time) so I decided to take all that I had learned about “internet marketing”, “online lead generation” and “social media” – and begin sharing it with “other” local business owners who I knew could us it.
Then, I Started Sharing What I Had Learned With Others…Just Like You
The first company I helped was a local LASIK Eye Surgeon who we took from 4.3M/Year to over 17M/Year in under 3 years; using only the internet and internet marketing techniques as the main advertising methods.
I went on to help dozens of other “local” businesses get a foot hold in the search engines which equated to more leads, more phone calls and more business – and that is exactly what my consulting “motto” is to this day.
“More Leads, More Calls, More Business”
How did I do it? Simple really…
It’s my obsessive personality – I am frankly, obsessed with the internet and all of its paths to generating more business, I have been since day one.
I stay on top of what works, I constantly test (I own dozens of websites across as many different industries and markets) and I’m in every major online marketing circle and network that has any real value at all.
And, to put it to you simply – here’s exactly where I excel…
Firstly; most websites were never built with the search engines and marketing in mind – but rather they were built by some web design firm that guessed at what might work and threw it at the wall hoping that something would stick.
You ended up with an error ridden, non ranking website that sits there, doing nothing; ouch!

Can I show you how to do the latest things online such as “Social Media” OR Google Paid Advertising (PPC)? – Sure, and I will – however FIRST things first; your internet marketing foundation which stands on three legs must be handled before any of that.
What You Must Get Handled First
Leg #1: Your Website (does it have the proper “elements” of success?)
Leg #2: Penalties (almost every site has “bad items” holding it back)
Leg #3: Search Engine Rankings (can potential customers even find you?)
Here’s what you should do next…
I’ll show you how to get each of the “3” foundational legs above “handled” once and for all and give you a track to run on.
Incidentally these are the exact items I obsessed over in the beginning of my online marketing endeavors and they are literally the key to internet marketing success – without them nothing else works.
