How a cook went from $200 in his bank account to $100,000 profit in one year doing offline marketing – with Mike Shreeve


Episode 11

A year ago Mike Shreeve was working long shifts as a cook in the¬†Philippines. Now he spends about 20 hours a week working on his offline business and pulls in over $100,000 in profit per year. Today we’ll hear from Mike how he touts himself as a “Reputation¬†Management¬†Consultant” instead of an SEO to give him an edge over the competition.

Things we talk about in the show include:

1. What skills do you need to make money offline?

2. How can get quality leads?

3. What things should I work on myself and what things should I outsource?

4. How many clients will I need to make $100,000/year?

  1. Hi Mike,

    I realize I am only one subscriber, but I wanted to give you some feedback.

    I personally don’t have time to watch 30 and 40 minute videos. (I don’t listen to podcasts either. I can scan and read very quickly, but you can’t scan video or audio.)

    If you could either use a service to add a transcript later (like some other podcasters do), or perhaps mix it up a little bit with some text posts, and some video posts, I would enjoy that a lot more.

    I do understand why you are doing so many videos right now, because I saw you mention it on the intro to the “how to do interviews” video.

    I think that video watchers and readers aren’t necessarily the same audience though, and it’s going to leave me behind if you go in the video only direction.

    Your site redesign looks nice, by the way. Much better.

    1. LH,

      Thanks for your feedback, I really appreciate it.

      I will be releasing a podcast for you to listen to within the next week.

      As far as a text version goes, I’m not sure yet. If I’m producing 20 videos per month and paying at minimum $15 per video I’ll be spending $300/month for transcription services. At this point that’s just way too high a fee, but perhaps in the future.

      Thanks for watching!

  2. Mike,
    another excellent interview. So helpful to get to see and hear an IM marketer who is answering well thought out questions. Mile long sales pages and written blogs can not accomplish what you are doing in this series of interviews. I have been thinking about reputation management as a business and know people that couldn’t survive in their businesses because of one or two disgruntled customers. And the business owners were good, honest people.
    Keep this going Mike. (I bought the WSO)

    1. Jeff,

      Thanks for buying through my link. Mike really seems to know what he’s talking about. All you really need to get is a few clients and you’ll be making pretty decent money.

      Come back and report on how you like the product after you’ve looked it over.

  3. Interesting interview Mike, offline is not something I’d considered. May have to have a look now that Google keeps throwing us curve balls.


    1. Chris,

      It seems like a pretty attractive way to make money after getting slapped around by Google for so long.

      1. I totally agree with Chris. I haven’t looked at offline marketing yet but it seems to be getting more enticing every day now with all these darn Google updates. Keep killing my sites.

        1. James,

          I think there’s still a ton of opportunity to get offline clients. With just 16 clients Mike Shreeve is making over $100,000 a year…very impressive.

  4. I purchased this. I am in the process of repositioning myself in the off-line market and I think this program will provide me a good guide to assess and see if this is a good match.

    1. Jason,

      Let me know what you think of it once you’ve had a chance to look it over.

  5. Hey Mike I continue to get great value from your posts and your new online show.
    Keep up the great work you are doing as I’m sure many people are a little down in the dumps after the previous weekends ..emm….events and anything that creates or promotes a way to move forward deserves credit.

    1. Tim,

      Thanks for your support. Hopefully we can all work together to find other sources of income.
