Sydni and I have been getting this question a LOT lately. “Where in the HECK have you been?”
But, you will be ecstatic when you hear why we have been hibernating for so long. Plus, you are going to benefit a great deal!

There has been a host of projects that weâ€™ve worked on that has enabled us to hone our skills so that you can get better at developing yours

Remember those big organizations that I told you about a minute ago? Well, it gets even better for youâ€¦ We are now partners with a company that you may have heard of before. it just so happens that it is the nations largest email marketing firmâ€¦ Constant Contact!
Let me tell you part of the story as to why we’ve been so short on time (and thus away from you for so long).
We have developed a partnership with Constant Contact that keeps both Sydni and I tremendously busy. First, let me share one of the great benefits of this alliance.
Before joining forces with this amazing company, we spent 100% of our business in a virtual environment. Thatâ€™s right, we conducted the majority of our business online.
Now, we speak in front of hundreds of people each quarter and the results have been astounding! In fewer than 15 months we have been able to build a database of over 1,500 prospects. Many of them have become clients of ours.
How is this helpful to you? Well, we are living proof that public speaking is a great way to grow your business. When you speak in front of a live audience (or a virtual one), you gain instant credibility and expert status. (Be sure to make a note of this marketing strategy. This piece of advice is a freebie 🙂
Because of our relationship with Constant Contact, we have earned a few certifications as well. These certifications prove that we have gone through a stringent vetting process and Constant Contact now gladly funnels fresh leads to our company. (See why weâ€™ve been away for so long?)
Here is where this gets really good for you. Now that we are Master Certified Trainers and consultants that are vetted by Constant Contact, that means we have so much more valuable content and resources to share with you!
Very shortly, we will be inviting you to online trainings, live seminars (if you live near San Francisco) and other courses and resources that will help you to master email marketing. Whether you use email marketing for yourself or for your clients, we have exactly what you need to take your marketing skills to an expert level.
