A Websitetology Testimonial

One of our clients, Rob Degenhart, invited us to speak to the Fairborn Rotary- then he sent out this e-mail:

Good Morning Fairborn Rotarians, Businesses, Organizations and Residents

Mark your calendars, Friday October 12 at the Park Hills Crossing Clubhouse (Downstairs). Sign up at http://websitetology.com/?page_id=247&product_id=5 you get the full day, Websiteology 101 AND Websiteology Intensive Seminars for $139. While there sign up for David’s Free Newsletter!

This will give you everything you need and more to get your website moving to the top of Google and attracting the visitors to your business that you want. I will be attending both sessions as will two of my employees. Not only should you, the business owner, attend both sessions, it is strongly recommended, by me, to bring someone else from your organization. You need someone else in your business to have the know how to add content to your site. That is the key! Adding relevant content on a regular basis!!!

What is relevant content?

  • If you’re Jamie Hensley at Goodyear Tire it’s a weekly tip on tire care, car care, anything related to your car that his customers should know. Give your customers good information to keep your business name at Top of Mind Awareness.
  • If you’re Terry McCoskey, you sharing healthy living guidelines, news on nutrition, the wheel of wellness. It’s also asking your patients to share relevant information, building dialogue within the community.
  • If you’re George Humerick, It’s sharing news on tax law changes, homestead exemption, money saving ideas, case studies, how a new client benefited from switching tax guys to you…That’s relevant to your clients! And prospective clients…give them reason to visit again…give them value when they come to your site…give them something new to read!
  • If you’re Craig Fourman, it’s easy! Just tell people in your words what your doing, who needs prayers, how about an inspirational note every week, announce weekly attendance…churches are great for blogging! Get your members talking on your site, sharing information that other members of the church would find beneficial.
  • If you’re the Andy and Elmer site, you announce every sale of books, which club bought, how many, how they intend to use them etc….get those clubs to post back to the Andy and Elmer site how the books were received, photos of kids getting books…case studies would work great here…imagine a Rotary Club coming to the site and reading about a dozen other clubs experience with Andy and Elmer? Bet they would be more likely to buy and buy again…

Are you a not for profit? Better get to this seminar!!! Do you have a need to raise money? Let people know what your doing in the community, what help you need, success stories, press releases etc…people will give if they know what and who they are giving to…

Are you a restaurant? How about sharing information on wine, handcrafted beers you serve, special menus that change, recipes, highlight an employee every month, promote the festival you’re participating in…

Are you Fairborn Camera and Video? I did a google search for them today and could not even find a website…That is a crime! Downtown Fairborn Business Association Members need this seminar!

Are you a dry cleaner, dentist, bed and breakfast, automotive repair, association, contractor, a retiree and do interesting things, a printer, real estate professional, costume store, tent company, travel agency, the list goes on and on…You all have relevant content, things to share and give to your customers, you will start seeing results quickly…

The catch is it takes commitment! It takes learning and time, you must commit! David Esrati will tell you that his seminar attendees walk out excited with good intentions and most never end up taking action or following up with commitment…

I will make a commitment to any Fairborn Business, Organization, Club, Individual or Local Government to start a local user group that will meet monthly to review, re-learn, strategize, share information and offer help to those who make the commitment.

Why would I do this? Here are some of my motivations:

  • It’s fun (I enjoy it)
  • It’s easy (Even I can do it)
  • It works (Ask to see my web site stats and Google indexing)
  • It’ll help your business (It’s helped mine)
  • It’ll help Fairborn (Growing businesses help their city)
  • It’s fun (You or someone in your organization will enjoy it)
  • It’s easy (You or someone in your organization can do it)
  • It works (You will see results)

How sold am I on this whole Websiteology thing? I have four of these damn things!

If any of my other graduates would like to offer a testimonial- please comment below (and yes- it adds links back to your site, so it would be a good idea).

  1. David’s seminar is definitely worth the time and the amount of benefit is endless. The most important thing to remember, in my opinion, is that you probably won’t really “get it” until you have worked on the tools you learn for a while. I took the class twice and right after the second time, everything finally clicked!!
    Do yourself and business a HUGE favor–Take The Class!

  2. And everyone is allowed to come to a free refresher class, if there is space available.

  3. I’d just like to offer a quick comment to let you all know about the great success we are having with the site we built after taking the websiteology seminar, thestudiofiles.com. Dave has mentioned it in an earlier email, but our daily hits are increasing at a rate that I would not have thought possible. For one extremely relevant search string in google, we are getting NUMBER ONE ranking after less than 4 weeks. We are even beating out a multimillion dollar company whose name is one of the search terms!

    The secret? Information. Connection. Communication.

    All of the things that a wordpress site makes it so easy to accomplish. Do yourself a favor and take the seminar. Find the places where what you know is a valuable commodity and make a permanent, profitable statement.

  4. Back in 2004, I decided to create a website for my business. After perusing the web, I finally found a firm located in St. Louis, that created websites that not only matched my personality but also seemed to be on the cutting edge of Web Design. I spoke to them on the phone and they mailed me a brochure about the websites they created and how it would cause “Explosive Growth” for my business. I was SOLD! Within days I flew out to St. Louis so they could take pictures and record video of me for my website. Within 3 weeks my website was finished. I was so Excited.

    Well, after two years of so called “Explosive Growth” I had gotten only 4 new clients. So I called the company and spoke to the owner, he was genuinely saddened that the site had not performed better. He gave me a name of a friend of his in Indiana that does web design and SEO (Search Engine Optimization).

    I called him. While on the phone, he pulled up my site and said, “No wonder you are not getting any hits from the search engines.” Then he explained why. After he told me, I was thinking to myself why didn’t the other firm know about this. God knows I paid them enough!

    So I told him to fix my site so that I would not only get more hits but more businesss also. He assured me that would be the case. He proceeded to gut my old site and then rebuilt it. When he was finished I was pleased how it looked but more importantly how it was supposed to perform. After all, he fixed everything that was wrong with it.

    Well, 19 months later I had gotten a total of 5 clients from my revised site. Ugh! That result was unacceptable! About that time a friend of mine had attended a Websiteology seminar. She called me after attending the seminar… she was so excited. She was spewing all kinds of terms I had never heard of. I’m thinking to myself who is this Esrati… the Tony Robbins of Website Design. The information she gave me that night made a lot of sense. I knew that she new nothing about websites yet after going to a one day seminar she seemed very knowledgeable.

    Since my website was essentially invisible to all the search engines I figured I should drive up to Dayton and talk to these guys. What is interesting is they wanted to actually meet me and talk with me. The guy in Indiana did not want to. The meeting went well. I met with David and Seth. Both are very knowledgeable and open. My true Website education began sitting at the table with the two of them. They were totally honest with me. They told me up front it would be work. They signed me up for the seminar and I attended. The semianr was full of pearls! Seth took my website apart and reinstalled the good stuff into WordPress.

    My site has been up now for several weeks and I’m already getting 3 to 4 times as many hits as before. If I had to do it all over again, I would have gone directly to “The Next Wave.” I would have saved lots of money, time and would have gotten many more clients.

    Thanks Guys!
