Small business advertising and marketing tips to help get you ranked high in local search engines shared by business and life coach Greg Clowminzer.
While most online marketing gurus are touting the use of social media such as Twitter, FaceBook, and YouTube to launch the sales of your products and services I have been using a secret weapon virtually no one knows about. It’s called Merchant Circle.
You see in March of 2008 my wife and I became associates in a MLM company which I prefer to call it network marketing company just because I think it sounds better. We fell in love with the company and the product and saw a real opportunity to help people improve their overall health and wellness.
For the last 16 years my primary income has come from providing a service to help entrepreneurs grow their businesses while making sure their life was in balance and that they were living their life on purpose based on their true values and their definition of success.
Over the years, as you can imagine everyone and their brother has tried pitching me on one type of business opportunity or another. In which case I have always politely declined. I was always told that I would be great at network marketing but I just couldn’t see myself bugging my family and friends and try selling them something.
As a business coach I was also concerned about building a sustainable business one that had staying power beyond a warm list of friend and acquaintances. I knew from personal experience that the life of any business boils down to the ability to consistently generate leads and to do it without spending a bunch of money.
If you want to know how I generated tons of free leads that have made thousands of dollars then keep on reading.
I had no idea what I was doing when I started all of this and am completely blown away from what I have been able to do with Merchant Circle and I feel almost obligated to share it with struggling entrepreneurs and small business owners.
So what is Merchant Circle?
Merchant Circle is like a MySpace for business owners plus a lot more.
Basically it is an opportunity to establish a web presence with other business owners and it allows you some really powerful tools like blogging which helps get you ranked high in Goolgle searches for free.
Again, I wasn’t clear of the power of Merchant Circle until I started playing around with it. I created a profile for my MLM business, started connecting with other merchants and posted a couple of blogs.
And guess what happened next?
I started to show up on the first page of Google for specific keywords about my business and yes all for free.
What happened next?
You guessed it.
My phone started ringing.
Yes, people started calling me to find out more information about my product.
It gets better.
People started calling me and wanting to purchase my product.
OK, there is something really important you need to know about my product.
It sells for just over $2000. That’s right $2000.
People were calling me to buy a $2000 product.
I got so excited I immediately upgraded my Merchant Circle account to one of their paid packages.
Again, I hear people talking about all kinds of other strategies for building your business but no one, I mean no one is talking about Merchant Circle.
It is the best kept secret in your online marketing tool box.
Also, I started teaching my entire down-line these marketing trick and guess what, you got it, their phones are ring too.
