Whew! So much stuff going on right now. It’s very exciting. The biggest things for me lately are the new weekly podcasts. I am having a really great time recording them. I’m trying to go through quite a few of the people who did coffee round tables at Pondomonium. Each of their talks were so interesting and I wish I could have been at all of them. Instead. I’m going to bring the highlight of as many as I can right to you.
Each podcast has a tip of the week and what I did that week along with a guest. The guest and I uncover “secrets” of pond marketing. The first Podcast is “The Secret to Having a Coach. We talk to AquaReale’s coach, Tom Reber of the Contractor Fight about how he motivates us (his clients.) You get a really cool in-depth look at a coach and their client really communicating and asking relevant questions.
Next is the secret to doing a podcast, featuring Mike Gannon, the very popular creator of his own podcast—the Pond Hunter. Here was my chance to find out advice on how to run a good podcast. And third is Michael Garcia—with the secret to being out customer.
Other than that, I’m just keeping up with AquaReale’s daily marketing—there’s always something to do. I hope you get a chance to listen to the podcasts and take some pond marketing actions. Good luck!
Welcome to Pondtent! We plan to help pond builders with marketing, both with our automated marketing solutions and with our weekly podcasts and tips.
We ask other for their “why,” so here is mine. I have been in your shoes. My husband and I own a pond company. I always had my own marketing company as well. For years, we never marketed our landscape business. I didn’t have time and he didn’t know how.
Without marketing, we never grew and expanded. Eventually, family health issues lead me to close my marketing company and concentrate on the landscape/pond business full time. Now I had no choice but to do the marketing. My livelihood depended on it. We did not have another paycheck to fall back on.
I put my marketing skills to the test, doing everything I could to expand and grow. Our business grew in four years from $350,000 in sales to $650,000. Why? Marketing!
People kept asking me what I did and if I could do it for them. I took what I do for AquaReale and simplified it into the easiest marketing program we could come up with. One where you don’ have to do much to get going.
I know the marketing obstacles you all face and I am here to help. My solutions are the only thing you should do, but they are a great base and an excellent place to start. I can’t wait to see how we can help your company grow like mine did!
