John Vuong - Local SEO Search

John Vuong - Local SEO Search

September 3, 2020

In this episode of the Road To Growth podcast, we are pleased to introduce you to John Vuong. John is the fourth child of Vietnamese immigrants to Canada, John is very familiar with hard work. He was born and raised in Hamilton, and worked from a young age to help his family while also having some pocket money to have fun.

John has had almost too many jobs to count, starting when he was ten helping out on paper routes. Through all of his work, though, he has focused on a single thing – building relationships.

Whether it was collecting money and making sales on his paper route, shelving books at his local library, or manning the fryer at a stadium, he loved meeting new people and getting to know them. He connected by listening to others’ stories and sharing his own.

At University in London, Ontario, he studied finance. He quickly learned that living on your own in residence doesn’t mean you can procrastinate and coast – he got 20% below his usual grades on his first exams. He quickly learned to buckle down and work hard to get the results he wanted.

One of the defining events of his life was when he was accepted into an exchange student program in his 3rd year of university. He travelled to Lancaster, England for a year and learned a whole new culture and approach. He loved meeting new people, whether students or locals.

After graduation, he wanted to continue travelling and was accepted into a program to teach in Japan. However, his brother spoke to him about settling down and handling his finances responsibly, so he chose to get a job in Toronto.

His adventure in sales began at Red Pages, a startup that wanted to follow Yellow Pages and create a printed directory, only of websites instead of phone numbers. This was 2003, when Google was in its infancy and everyone was still trying to understand what the internet would be. Yellow Pages was a major player and everyone invested in print ads.

John did an excellent job building relationships with local businesses and selling ads for Red Pages, but the product wasn’t used the way Yellow Pages was and the startup did not succeed.

John’s next job taught him that building relationships was so important he wasn’t happy if he couldn’t do it every day. He was with an affiliate online marketing company that got customers for big businesses that were paying per acquisition. He found the job very transactional and didn’t stay long. His passion for building relationships was not possible there.

The next five years saw John doing outside sales for Yellow Pages and enjoying the connections he made with business owners and coworkers. However, near the end of his time there the company was faltering. Businesses weren’t getting the returns they used to on their ads. Print was declining, and Google was taking over. John wanted to serve his customers more fully, so he started to explore online marketing.

The founding of Local SEO Search was an adventure. He got his first customer when he didn’t yet have a laptop – he was showing prospects Google search results on his phone. However, his first six-month contract got the ball rolling and it’s been doing well ever since.

His primary passion in his business is to help small business owners succeed. He loves to see his clients grow and see the tangible results of his work every day. Giving small businesses a leg up so they can compete with more established companies is something John enjoys a great deal.

Over time, he’s refined what verticals he’s interested in serving and made the processes at Local SEO Search more efficient. He focuses on working hard, being honest, transparent, and good to staff and clients. That’s when the good stuff really happens.

John believes in education and continuous learning. That’s why he started his own podcast, Local SEO Today, in 2018. He wanted to provide a tool for business owners and entrepreneurs to help them succeed. Originally, the podcast focused on the expertise of himself and Roger Murphy, Local SEO Search’s Vice President of Sales. But in 2019 he began interviewing other business owners and entrepreneurs and has found a wealth of knowledge to share with his audience.

In his personal life, John has a wife and a four year old son who are the center of his world. He loves to watch his son grow, learn, and interact with the world. He works hard during work hours but at a certain time of day the phone goes off and he focuses on his family. They do a lot together: travelling, skiing, swimming and going to live events.

Life is short, so embrace it and take on the adventure. You can run a business the way you want and do it well so that you can spend time with family and friends, which is what really matters.

Ravi Abuvala - Owner of Scaling with Systems

Ravi Abuvala - Owner of Scaling with Systems

August 27, 2020

In this episode of the Road To Growth podcast, we are pleased to introduce you to Ravi Abuvala. Ravi never wanted to be an entrepreneur, his whole life was molded around going to one of the top law schools in the nation. Three days after graduating from college his dad was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. This led him to move in with him in Atlanta, spending 8 hours a day at the hospital for chemo/radiation treatments, then staying up  until about midnight studying for the LSAT (Law School Admission Test). That time made him realize how precious life really was. He decided not to go to law school (took the test, scored in the 90th percentile, got into dream schools), and started my journey towards online business.

    His first company (Prospect Social) made $3,000 in 8 months, then he learned the power of systems and virtual assistants, and 14 months later we are consistently made $200,000-$220,000/month. This fast growth caught the attention of some of his peers at which point he opened up a consulting firm (Scaling With Systems) where he helps other companies scale to multiple seven figures using their fully trained virtual assistants, automation, and systems. They now have a recruitment and training center in the Philippines, they have placed over 600 virtual assistants for their clients, and have helped scale close to 500 companies. For more information on that journey, you can check it out here. You can see hundreds of case studies here.

Matt Clark - Chief Igniter at The Virtual Edge

Matt Clark - Chief Igniter at The Virtual Edge

August 13, 2020

In this episode of the Road To Growth podcast, we are pleased to introduce you to Matt Clark. Matt is the chief Igniter at The Virtual Edge, and his team has been helping businesses double their leads on LinkedIn for years now. Their flagship system - The Rainmaker System, is a clearly defined step by step process that helps coaches, consultants, and advisers generate 2-5 high value leads per day on Linkedin without paying for ads. 

 

They have helped over 1500 businesses in 18 countries grow their businesses to 6 and 7 figures. To get a feel for the effectiveness of this system, one of their clients increased their sales by 800% in just two months. Another generated 300 leads in four months resulting in 50 million dollars in finance.

 

The success of the Rainmaker System has led to Matthew becoming a sought after international speaker and has shared the stage with Dr. Phill, JT Foxx, 

Michael Douglas, and many more. 

 

The most pivotal and poignant moment of his life, was when Matt was diagnosed with a serious life-threatening illness. 

 

Matt’s compelling story of how he recovered and healed himself of Crone’s disease and how it changed his entire life trajectory is definitely one that your audience will find value in. During his illness, Matt could only function and do work for 1-2 hours maximum per day. He was forced to find the most time-efficient way to get generate new leads for his business and keep the lights on. 

 

Not only was this the beginning of The Rainmaker System...

It was also the start of a completely new way of being for Matt

 

Some of these lessons turned into books; The Proven Path, The Automation Playbook, and The Automated Income System. More of these lessons are featured in Wake up- How to live a Healthy Vibrant Lifestyle.
