Today we have an interesting fellow, Speaker, Marketing Consultant, Sales Trainer, Online Video Producer, and the current CEO and Co-Founder of DUDEPros.com: Chris “The Dude Beast” Martinez.
Chris launched WebsiteIn5Days.com, an agency providing websites and digital marketing support to solopreneurs to help them double the amount of leads they generate online in 2012 but he kind of felt like he was starting to lose his personality in the business. He knew he needed to make some sort of change and take it in a kind of a different direction. (although WebsiteIn5Days.com still works with some badass solopreneurs and small businesses). After subscribing and reading to our Evergreen Profits Letter, Chris was convinced to start infusing his personality into his business and marketing. He realized that he liked wearing a wrestling mask and working with marketing consultants, funnel consultants, and agencies WAY more than working with solopreneurs.
In this episode, Chris will talk about how the character “The DUDE Beast” cut through the clutter of all the other Facebook ads and why their clients all across the United States and Canada loved the idea of having their own “digital dream team” in the Next Room: empowering them to get more done, bring on more clients, and have more time to do the things that they love – inexpensively!
