Looking for help in marketing, SEO, or just plain, How do I grow my business?
As the creative director of a website design shop, I get regular requests for ongoing help with marketing, promotion, and the favorite:
So I have a website, thank you! Now what do I do?
Or a plethora of related questions:
- Do you know where I could learn more about SEO?
- Do you provide ongoing marketing services?
- I’d love to do a podcast for my business, do you know how I could get started?
- I’m sure you get this question all the time, but how do I get more traffic to my new site?
- Where can I connect with other small business owners?
There is so much information, education, workshops, classes, and just plain information overload out there that it’s overwhelming. How DO you learn about podcasting or building your audience? Is your target audience even the right one? Who can I bounce ideas off of for my new service idea? Where do you go for help? But maybe even more important:
Where do you go to get help you can trust?
Not just a place where you can buy the ebook only to be badgered to buy the webinar and then you’ll get a special price for the online intensive workshop. But a place where there is a library of information neatly organized (even with markers where you left off last!), interviews with people just like you who have Been There and Done That.
But it’s not just the static information. Then there are the forums. Hundreds of people to connect with to bounce ideas off, connect with, even, gasp, maybe talk to on the telephone or even, shock, horror, meet in person. I know it happens, it’s even happened to me. Crazy, I know.
There are also in-person meet ups, regular “office hours” where the founders have a live Q & A session. The guys have a weekly podcast, regular blog posts, and … man, when I write it down like this, I realize how much they have on offer.
Why am I writing all of this out?
Because I get this question often and I want to have an answer I believe in. Here’s some more about Fizzle from their site.
