Free #IM Consulting Saturdays
Remember the night before Christmas when you were a kid? You didn’t want to SLEEP even thought the only way to make it to THE day was to close your eyes and appease your parents. Sure you wouldn’t be able to actually sleep you would play the part and fool your parents. You were so excited to be alive you didn’t want to miss a moment.
Of course you feel asleep the moment your head hit the pillow. Good thing too because your parents needed you passed out so they could build all the stuff Santa dropped off on his tour of your neighborhood . After 13 years that feeling you remember from the night before Christmas is how I still feel about Internet marketing. I love this stuff.
Free Internet Marketing Consulting Saturdays Offer
Just about every Saturday I sit at my friend Robert Ghanem’s Saladelia restaurant, eat great food and soak up Robert’s generous WiFi. If you would like me to think about your Internet marketing problem or if you would like to come have lunch one Saturday I offer my time, ideas and thoughts free of charge with no obligations or warrants. “Warrants” is legalese for if you make a million bucks from our conversation GREAT and you owe me NOTHING. Appreciate if you donate some to cancer research, but you owe me nothing.
Who are You?
You can read about my 13 years of Internet marketing experience on my Marty Marty Smith LinkedIn Profile. More than ten people I’ve worked WITH or FOR have shared their impressions in recommendations.
The quick summary is I’ve helped others make over $30M online via more than 500,000 transactions with an Average Order Value (AOV) of $65. I’ve spent a week with SEO Guru Bruce Clay and have achieved several important #1 SEO listings (even though #1 isn’t what it used to be post the float LOL). I’ve worked with Seth Godin, and yes I am Martin of Martin’s Ride To Cure Cancer, the little bicycle ride across America to help cure cancer.
My ScentTrail Marketing blog has over 100K views, my Klout score, last time I checked, was in the low sixties. Almost 40,000 viewers have visited my Martin Marty Smith Scoop.it page or one of my 12 digital marketing Revolutions such as the Curation Revolution.
Are You All That and A Bag of Chips or What?
I’ve been LUCKY, worked hard and have been blessed with great bosses like my current boss and have always had smart friends. I’ve failed more than I’ve succeeded as any Internet marketer has. I kept notes, as any Internet marketer does.
I am NOT all that and a bag of chips. I’ve faced challenges, been helped and have helped. I don’t make this offer for fame or glory (lol). I offer my knowledge and experience because I prefer eating lunch WITH someone and enjoy talking Internet marketing with those who care about it too.
What is In It For You?
I’ve been marketing one thing or another for thirty years and MORE brains are always better than fewer. I offer mine without looking for anything in return.
What is the Catch?
While I would love it if you would Follow @ScentTrial on Twitter, threw som +K my way, say nice things about me on LinkedIn (hey I have an ego too LOL) and speak kindly about me to strangers there really is NO CATCH. If you REALLY love my help, donate to cure cancer at the Duke Cancer Institute or help Martin’s Ride achieve its donation goal.
You Just Want To Steal My Secret Sauce
Ideas are rarely stolen since thieves are lazy. When we helped Magnetic Poetry Kit, words on magnets most people put on their fridge or locker, become a multimillion dollar gift brand it wasn’t knocked off until we were well past the $1M mark. Yes things are faster and more connected now, but your secret sauce is safe with me .
Still not sure? Draft a mutual Nondisclosure Agreement (NDA) and I will be glad to sign. Believe me when I tell you I have enough trouble getting MY ideas off the ground stealing yours is not even in my mind (lol).
How Can I Get Your Help
If you live in Raleigh Durham check @ScentTrail on Saturday morning. If, like most Saturdays I am going to be having lunch at Saladelia I will Tweet that Saturday Office Hours At Saladelia are OPEN you are free to join me. Tweet and let me know you are coming or just show up. If we have more than one person looking for help we will make sure everyone’s questions get some thought and answers.
If you don’t live in Raleigh / Durham email your Internet marketing question to either my personal or work emails (contact information below). Since questions take more research and time than talking to people, questions for Saturday must be emailed by no later than Friday noon and will be answered in the order they came in (first in, first out). Questions after Friday noon will be answered the following Saturday.
Skype Option – We may create a skype option eventually if there are enough questions, but, for now, email or show up and have lunch.
