Free help and advice to Small Businesses

I will answer questions related to:

Online Marketing ♦ Online Strategies ♦  Insurance

Why free? What’s the catch? Right?

Here is the situation.  

  • I am 43 and am preparing to “retire” from my day to day job.  (Owning and operating a successful insurance brokerage.)
  • I don’t have the “retiring” sort of personality and am looking for something to do part time to keep me from driving my wife crazy.
  • I attribute a large part of my success in my business to my successful online marketing efforts.  ie public and b2b relations, SEO, SEM, content curator, content creator, web developer, etc.
  • I have had many who have helped and mentored me, and I have a desire to serve others, and now it is time for me to give back.
  • (list of mentors and links to be placed here)

The why.  If you are still trying to figure out my “angle”…  I am looking to build relationships with other business owners & managers so when the time comes for my retirement I will have made the connections and built the relationships necessary to work as a part time consultant.

In the efforts of full disclosure.

  • I am not a classically trained SEO/SEM expert.  Just a small business owner who has had success attracting customers online for several companies with marketing questionsmultiple online properties, in a very difficult niche competing against large corporations with huge ad budgets. (Farmers, Allstate, Geico, Progressive, State Farm)
  • I have made lots of my own mistakes, but I have learned the lessons that have come with them.
  • Sometimes my answer to your questions will be “I don’t know.” or “You should ask ….” etc.
  • Nothing I do is a “get rich” quick idea or will make rainbows appear instantly.
  • I have not begun to accept payment for any of my consulting efforts, but depending on the scope of your question(s) I may ask you for a kind word, referral, testimonial, or a mention on one of your online assets. (Website, social, etc.) Please feel free to share this page with anyone you believe might find it useful.
  • Please understand that I do not have the ability to be a full-time consultant for you or your company.  This offer is designed to be an outlet or resource for your occasional question or problem that you are having trouble with.  
  • Questions should not be essay length. Please provide detailed information but not unnecessarily wordy. Expect the responses to be the same.
