About Marketboom
Joined February 2016
I'm 55 years old and realized two years ago that working for myself was not working well for me. My local service business had a lot of competition and I never had time to learn enough seo (site, blog search engine optimization) to get my local site on page one of a River Of Traffic and Leads.

Long story short, I did it! I now have that business near top of Google searches for most top keywords and quite frankly I wasn't ready for it.

"So, it's hello new customers and goodbye advertising costs!"

These days I am searching for ways to outsource the large jobs that call in till I train or find another professional like me. It truly hurts to lose customers though but at the same time I have to smile and say...

"One step at a time" ...And "Never Give Up!"

Thought will stop by and say a "Hello!" I read your bio. Liked it. In my work I get to deal with many dedicated local business owners who are good with their stuff but find it tough to raise their game in the online world and have a tough time finding new customers. Glad to hear that you have cracked it and could position yourself in top Google searches.

Thanks Thomas. You know, now that my new wp site is actually starting over with Google as I chose not to check a little box to let them know I was moving my business site from them. (I was 50/50 on that decision) but I wanted a new chance to rank high for the big one keyword> carpetcleaning so I went with carpet cleaning services not to be too greedy this time ha. Google had my old site ranked nicely for >upholstery cleaning tho. ..well back to work, somehow Search Console has lost my site map? I thought It was already there. Oh well life in the fast lane lol. ..See you around man :)

Hello Madek! No apologies necessary. We are both busy building our freedom, businesses and sites. We will catch back up one day when I get a little more freed up. Tonight I'm tapping my heals waiting for an important site to reindex on Google on WA. 1/3 of my main traffic is stopped right now...but I'm smiling and feeling good about the NEW seo. :)

How are things going with your business?

Hi, Allen!

Things are going well, despite the little time I have to take forward the website. Actually, that's not a business for a while. For now, I'm looking for helping people in accordance with my articles, through a healthy lifestyle. Wish you great success in your marketing venture. Cheers!

Allen, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend.

You're right about 'small steps'. Build a solid foundation and the sky's your limit.

Work hard, have some fun and don’t forget to ask questions although you probably have a pretty good knowledge by now. How is/are your website/s coming along?

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Hello Helen! Yes, It's been one learning curve after another but highly focused now. My local business is climbing and taking my thoughts and time right now. But that's a good thing :)

How are things going with you? Your sites?

Not too good. I have other things on my mind. But I am tackling things again now.

I understand the focusing problem when our minds are running too fast. I can't handle too much on my plate at one time but hiring helpers for the labor now and invested in the best two marketing tools I know.

My funnels and email campaigns are getting built at record speed now and I'm doing my second Happy Dance since I started marketing online three years ago. It has been worth all the misery and long nights learning the hard free way for traffic.

Keep the vision Close and your tasks limited till you complete each and everyone as you go :)

Hello Alan,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016-2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Good morning to you Allen, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back. What type of outsourcing are you contemplating, perhaps either I or a friend may be able to help you. I am very happy to hear your high in the SERPS with your website so most of the hard work has already been done.
I look forward to working with you and helping whenever asked. I wish you much success and prosperity in your journey.

Congratulations! Great to hear about your success.

You know your business so pardon "this advice" if not what you see is correct. Keep your quality up even if it means fewer sales. If you do so, your business will become more and more sustainable as a result of word-of-mouth and you can command higher margins.

Obviously, continue to grow your staff, but keep strong control of marketing/sales and the above addressed quality. The WHY for the marketing/sales is that you won't be hiring and then so readily training possible competition.

Best

P.S. Nice website

I wish you to become an AWESOME online marketer (if you aren't already :) ) and live a life of your dreams!

My greatest passion is video games and I strongly believe that games can influence our lives in a very positive and beneficial way. I'm always ready and willing to discuss the topic, so feel free to contact me anytime, if you're even slightly interested.

Also, if you ever need anything, have questions to ask, thoughts to share or just want to chat – just send me a message and I will try to help as best I can.

Cheers, good luck and see you around!

Anyway, thanks for the early follow. I really appreciate the welcome. I'm going to be looking to you for how you did it, so . . . until later.

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Allen,

P.j. here again, just stopping by to see how things are going with your training here at WA.

I'm sure by now that you have a good grasp on making money online, and hopefully you are starting to lay the foundations of your own online business.

It's exciting, right? To think that you are actually building a business online, a REAL business, is such an amazing feeling!

It's just the start of great things to come Allen, and over the next month you will be developing your site further and all being well, starting to earn from your website (even more exciting!)

Anyway, I just wanted to reach out and offer you some personal help if you are stuck or maybe need a helping hand, Just drop me a line if I can help in any way.

Before I go, I just wanted to remind you that if you do decide to upgrade to Premium, you can save some money. Please keep an eye on the countdown clock on your WA dashboard if you are considering this.

I really hope you've had a great first week Jan, and do drop me a line when you have the time and let me know what you think of the whole WA experience :-)

Cheers,

P.j.

Hi! Please accept my belated thank you for your warm welcome to WA. Learning the online business, building social media pages and learning how to get free traffic for them and my local carpet and upholstery cleaning site while servicing my new customers was all the time I had left. Anyways, I'm getting caught up tonight with all the getting started videos :) Learning how to get an air purification system that I adore marketed globally faster ...led me back here to WA. Wish me luck! :)
