"Learn the One Skill that will Enhance Your Credibility, Improve Your Search Engine Visibility, and Win the Trust of New Prospects... in Only Half a Day."

Writing a business blog is arguably the single most effective tactic you can use to grow your business today. In this new half-day workshop, you'll learn the same techniques we've been using for almost 10 years to create big wins for our clients!

  • Physician Dominates Google Results

    Back in 2006, I worked with a local physician who wanted to attract new patients. It was my first experiment with blogging. In the process of overhauling his website, I set him up with a blog and gave him some basic instructions. When the project was over, I all but forgot about it.

    Until 1 year later, that is. That was when I learned that he was dominating the top 40 positions in Google search results for his “big money” keyword phrase. (That’s the first 4 pages of Google, folks!)

    Today, almost 10 years later, he still gets 60% of his new patients from the web. Since he’s a specialist who would normally live on referrals from other physicians, that’s a big deal!

  • Florist Quadruples Sales in 90 Days

    Then there’s the local florist whose website was nowhere to be found in the Google search results. We set up her blog and spent a little time working out a plan for weekly posts.

    She began publishing a new blog post once weekly.

    In less than two weeks, her website was on page 1 for her target keyword phrase.

    She continued blogging, and both her website and blog began to see significantly increased numbers of visitors.

    Shortly thereafter, in only 3 months, orders for flowers through her website equaled what she’d done in the entire year prior! That’s 4x her web sales!

  • Service Business Reaches #1 in Google

    And most recently, there’s the story of a local pest control company who had hired someone to write their blog for them. Their website was getting traffic, but was not at the top of several important searches.

    Within 2 weeks of blogging using our techniques, their website was on page 1 of Google search results for the top industry keyword. Today, you’ll often find their website in the #1 position for “pest control Sarasota.” (I say “often” because Google search results are highly personalized and may vary somewhat based upon your search history and physical location.)

    The big story, though, is the huge volume of traffic their website receives today on hundreds of other search phrases. The impact on their sales has been enormous!

"Where Do I Start?"

The benefits of consistent blogging for your business are too numerous to name, but the one problem we hear about most often is: "I don't even know where to begin."

In only 4 hours, you'll not only know where to begin, you'll have the confidence you need to execute effectively and get results!

Who Should Attend?

This training is intended for business owners and their team members who are responsible for marketing. Often in small businesses, multiple key players need to be "in the loop" about strategy and tactics in order for the business to be successful. If you own a business, wear a "marketing" hat in a business, write for a business, manage social media, or if you're rewarded based upon revenue in any way (i.e. you're a sales person, you need to generate new leads, or you're in an executive position), then this event is for you.

Not sure if it's right? Please contact us and we'll be glad to help.

Will There Be a Sales Pitch?

The big reason we began doing events like this was to provide critical updates and information our other clients and key relationships in the most cost-effective, efficient manner. In the world of marketing—especially using the web, social media, and other digital tools—things change quickly... and we found this a great way to get people up to date.

What we found out was that many of our clients wanted "deeper dive" training in key areas. And so we realized that events like this are a fantastic tool... not only to most effectively serve our clients, but also to introduce other businesses to the strategies and methodologies we use to help our clients achieve results.

If you're not already one of our many satisfied clients, then you'll have an opportunity after the training is over to learn more about what we do. But a sales pitch is not part of the presentation. Our goal for this event remains to provide you with the most up-to-date information available for your digital marketing.

Most everyone who walks away from one of our training events feels that they got far more value than the investment of time and money that they put in. If for any reason you feel as though you did not gain value from the event, let us know on the spot and we'll refund your money.

Where Will This Event Be Held?

We're meeting at the offices of our friends at Nepsis Advisor Services near University Parkway & I-75. It's conveniently located in the Lakewood Ranch area to provide a central, easy-to-get-to location for our clients throughout Southwest Florida.
