From: Tom Gaddis & Nick Ponte
Aloha! I'm Tom Gaddis (in the glasses), and my business partner in the striped shirt is Nick Ponte. We’re full-time offline consultants in Maui, Hawaii.
Providing marketing services to local businesses allows us to live a pretty sweet life. We get to work from home, spend as much time with family as we want and the work is rewarding.
It wasn’t so easy when we first started our businesses. In fact, both of us darn near quit out of frustration and lack of clients …and lack of money.
See we came out of the gate swinging, trying to sell local businesses on high ticket services like SEO, Reputation Management, and Social Media.
We didn't get a single client!
Selling these types of services when without any clients or reputation is nearly impossible.
We needed a service we could start small and grow big.
Building our client base, reputation, and fees along the way.
