Hi I’m Allen Blankenship and welcome to my post… If you don’t have time to read my story today, I will understand so here is my link to hear the internet marketing story that may just change your life and the way you market forever! http://bit.ly/Almost_A_Secret_Allen
Year 2015. It’s March 4th in Huntsville Alabama and for the first time…
…since winter hit us here I felt a warmth in the breeze today. So far the only snow was all at one time a week ago and that measured close to six inches. It totally covered everything in a twelve hour period. I have never seen that much fall at one time that I can remember in over 3o years. Well, let’s hope that is all of it because this man and his business is so ready for some Spring Time.
It’s been a slow time for my carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning business as I had to let a large commercial cleaning account go last fall over payment issues. I realized then and now as if a boulder rolled on top of my head that my business needed more residential customers.
I’ve been in this business for years but always struggled…
..with the cost of getting those new residential customers. Some advertising media out there get a lot of traffic for you but wanted up to 50% of the cleaning job leaving accounts receivable at best, even for that first job. How to make that work, where one day, so many folks are using your service that it finally becomes a profit? I believe my biggest mistake through the years was not putting that (marketing rule#1) 30% of my business’s net income back into residential marketing.
…And now that two commercial accounts stung my business bad last year with changing management and it’s vendors and one simply could not pay, I am on a new mission. To start over and change my traditional ways of marketing online.
I wanted to attract my own customers and I wanted to do it for free
Actually that mission started last fall and that was to learn all I could about SEO (search engine optimization) and implementing that knowledge onto my carpet cleaning site. It’s a site on Google I built myself to save me and my future customers money and I offer any Huntsville Alabama and surrounding towns to come and learn more about my many carpet and upholstery services. http://www.carpetupholsterycleaning-huntsvilleal.com
My cleaning site has been on first page of Google for a while but until recently with applying the things I have learned with seo to my site I am finally on Bing and Yahoo now with a first page local listing. When I saw these search results I was one happy guy and so ready for my victory Happy Dance.
What stopped me?
I was already aware of a declining economy and how my own customer list were having to wait on that pay day to schedule and then something else would come up to take that money. So the new trend became a yo-yo actually getting jobs booked. They would schedule, then have to call and postpone. That was going to mean one thing. I needed more traffic to my site period!
Folks these days, including myself unfortunately, really have less money than we feel we do. I call that inflation at a shocking speed. The value of the dollar slowly grinds downward as the cost of products and services go up? That sounds like the biggest no win solution for a business there can be but us entrepreneurs push forward.
And now from the sounds of that old tv show Hee Haw…I searched the (world) net over and found my true love! No It’s not a wife but I believe this little known secret I’m about to share with you that I ‘stumbled across’ in my email is the absolute holy grail Solution for any business marketing in any niche in any market. It’s designed to build your traffic at an accelerated rate on auto pilot if you build it like we show you. And did I mention all that new traffic would be FREE?
