In his own words:
“Small businesses don’t have a lot of money to spend, yet they also want a great site that looks good, shows up in search engines, makes the phone ring, and in general–provides a measurable return on their hard-earned dollar. They want something that is simple to understand. And they don’t have time to learn all the technical details, but want a partner that can handle it, because they have a dozen other things to worry about.
My main focus is on training up students with real-world experience at no cost to them– funded by packages. And we do this for pro sports teams plus customers of Infusionsoft, since they have funnels to amplify with social.
I know BlitzMetrics has that team of people–a group of highly-trained analysts, not salespeople or call center people. The person you talk to when you come onboard is the same person who works with you on an on-going basis. They are paid according to how well you do, just like your clients are.
Do you have at least $1 a day to spend for online marketing? And are you willing to work with us as we gather information that you’ll need to present to your clients and customers? Then we might be able to help you show up in local search results. If you’re a franchise with many locations or if you’re a professional service firm that is willing to spend money on advertising, we have a few other options, as well.”
