Are You a Veteran-Owned Business owner Wanting to Explode Your Profits? Then This Is for YOU.
The Secret’s Out:
‘Free’ Veteran Business Resources Collect Dust while Vet Hustle-Coached Businesses Thrive and Prosper
Have you had enough with veteran business ‘charity’?
There are tons of groups giving out free resources to veteran-owned businesses like yours. But what does all this free stuff get you? PDFs, booklets, notes, and CDs full of stuff you don’t have time to put into play. And no one to help you.
Meanwhile, you’ve got a business to run, customers to serve, and product to move! The free stuff just doesn’t get it done. All the free mentors in the world aren’t worth a dime if they don’t call you back when you need them. Same with free marketing support.
Here’s the reality: There’s one simple reason your business isn’t growing like it should. You don’t market well enough. That’s it. And there are two reasons this will never improve if you don’t take drastic action – today – to change:
3 Reasons You Don’t Do Enough to Market Your Business
- Lack of Time
- Insufficient Funds
- Limited Expertise
When you were a soldier, you mostly had to take orders from someone else. But as a business owner, it’s up to you to make it happen. Here’s the secret to success in business (hint – it’s not really a secret):
Business success lives and dies with marketing success.
If your business is kicking butt and taking names, then you’re doing something right in your marketing.
However, if your business is struggling, you can blame your marketing for that too.
But this is good news!
Why? Because you can do something about it.
It’s not about price. Nor is it about the product. Or about customer service. Yes, all those things matter (a lot!), but if you have all those things and lousy marketing, your company will still struggle.
If you want your business to stop owning you (meaning – sucking every ounce of spare time you have and threatening your livelihood if you dare to take a week off), then it’s time to market as if your life depends on it.
Here’s the marketing you should be doing.

How’d You Do?
If you’re like most veteran-owned businesses, you aren’t doing most of that.
Social media? Most businesses are failing at it.
Email and internal marketing? Do you do any marketing to previous customers? Any idea how many of them are coming back or disappearing?
Scariest question of all for most businesses: How’s your website doing?
Be encouraged: Most business suck at marketing. So after you get yours humming, you’ll be heads and shoulders above most of your competition.
The Two-Part Solution to Veteran Business Marketing Woes

This is the only way for a typical business to do consistent, pound-the-pavement marketing that works. You’ve got to outsource it.
And the best of both worlds is when your marketing coach also does your marketing work, or partners with someone who does. That’s what we do for your business.

Internet Marketing – the Most Vital and Most Challenging Part of Marketing for Veteran Owned Businesses
If you are not easily findable online – whether in search engines or social media – then your business is invisible. And once a lead does find you, your site needs to thrill them and turn them into a satisfied customer. But to create a world-class business site requires a team of people few businesses can afford or have the time to deal with – graphic designers, social media marketers, copywriters, web developers, photographers, videographers, SEO specialists, and a marketing expert to manage them all.
This is all done for you through our service and partnerships.
Pay-Per-Click Online Ad Management
How much business does your website generate? A professional PPC plan works in both the short-term and the long-term. We’ll find your ideal buyers using Google Adwords. You’ll expand visibility and reach new customers and buyers.
Social Media Marketing
Google is good, but it’s not enough. Facebook and other social media networks get used by billions of people, worldwide. We’ll find your target audiences on these networks and take full advantage of the marketing tools these networks offer.
Email Marketing and Customer Retention
There is no better way to retain and re-sell to current and lapsed customers than email. Our team will help you design and implement an email marketing plan that keeps your best buyers happily coming back for more.
100% Mobile-Responsive Website Creation
Every site we create will display in a friendly way whether potential customers are seeking you on a smartphone, PC, tablet, Mac, or whatever else gets invented. Your site will be easy to navigate across all platforms.
Dominate Organic Traffic with SEO
The done-for-you services we offer deliver an optimized website that will bring your business the free organic traffic it needs to thrive from new leads and converted customers. We only use ethical SEO, canonical, rule-compliant strategies that won’t angry the Google overlords (or your customers). You’ll improve your visibility and reputation.
More and more buyers today don’t answer their phones (kind of defeats the purpose of having one, you might say!), especially if the number is unidentified. We’ll create a text-based marketing campaign that will help you capture leads via text message – and turn more leads into paying customers.
We Promise You One Thing: Your Business Will Never Be the Same
We’re veterans just like you, and we want to stand together and build something that lasts. We want to see your business grow. We want it to be more than a job. A job owns you. But when you started a business, the point was more freedom, not less.
