Using Words That Matter (Sell)

"It's the damn economy's fault!" -Most small business owners It's not the economy, it's not that your people are lazy or any other multitude of reasons that you may be falling behind. A major component as to why you're unable to sell your product and/or service is because your words STINK! Being "good" is simply not good enough! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to be "the absolute best" and to use the most compelling words possible in order to sell what you offer. In this video,…See More

Biography
You can check out my brief story here: http://bit.ly/9X0UDq

I want to give back to the F&B community that gave me so much. My background (aside from five years of restaurant experience) encompasses local SEO, permission marketing and copywriting, which, when fused together, helped me to create a number of incredible start-ups.

I created my company, Triple Your Tips, and contribute to FOHBOH to accomplish five primary objectives:

1. To help restaurant employees maximize their potential and show how much they care about their guests;

2. To help create dining experiences that people feel are worth talking about;

3. To teach others how to use basic online tools to establish their personal brands;

4. To positively influence others and help them understand that their attitude and mindset define, and will continue to define, their circumstances;

5. To show that I actually care.

Shoot me a line at brooks@tripleyourtipsbook.com or check out my site at http://tripleyourtipsbook.com as I would love to meet you! Thank you for your time and choose to live well. You deserve it.

Why Facebook Ads "Work" (And Why They Don't At All)

"Wow, I forgot how awesome Facebook makes their ads look," I thought to myself. I was in the midst of creating a Facebook fan page for my FOH training start-up and was looking at the ad preview that Facebook generates to entice the fan page owner to advertise.



Creating the ad design for the consumer automatically (based on the company's logo and description) is a slick move on Facebook's part but I was immediately reminded of the utter failure that I had experienced with this… Continue
