Do you have an SEO agency and want to expand your services?
Or do you just want to learn how to run Google ads for your own projects?
As a business, it is always important to keep leads coming in. More than that, you need to ensure that these leads convert to sales.
The problem with a lot of businesses is that they focus their attention on developing leads, without paying attention to the kind of business coming from them.
This means that they end up doing a lot more work than necessary. That's where Local Kingpin comes in. It's a course that promises to teach you how to generate leads that convert quickly and efficiently.
You can either use this information to build up your own business leads or to make money helping other businesses do the same.
Lets get to the meat and potatoes here and go over what's actually inside Local Kingpin... Let me first say that I was impressed by the thoroughness of the content.
Local Kingpin, and the course creator Bradley Benner, doesn't leave you high and dry like some courses when it glosses over important concepts because it assumes you already know what they are talking about.
LK covers just about everything you need to know to not only make successful ads, but also creating landing pages and little things you wouldn't think about...
"Why the hell do you need to know how to create Google accounts? Any idiot would surely know how to do that!" You may be asking yourself.
But theres actually a lot more that goes into it than simply adding a new account. Especially when you are running multiple websites.
One thing Google requires when creating a new account is a phone number, Bradley Benner teaches an awesomely simple way for doing that so you can have multiple accounts for each of your websites.
If your not working with a client and your running a local leadgen business, having a verified GMB is important. There are vendors that are selling this service for $200-500 per verified account.
Bradley Benner teaches a super simple way that he gets his accounts verified that he says works every time. The only downside is that he doesn't go over how this process would work in Canada.
Local Kingpin includes how to create landing pages for both WordPress (using Optimize Press) and using Clickfunnels. Obviously if you have read my Clickfunnels Review you know that I am a big fan.
But it can get pretty price for beginners, so it's good that they included Optimize press as an alternative.
This part is fairly dry but really important, setting up Google Adwords accounts. It can be confusing if you don't use it all the time so it is very thorough.
This is where things start to get spicy. Here is where you learn how to set up campaigns and then find which keywords to use that will drive you the most valuable traffic.
Then you learn how to fine tune the process to keep getting a bigger ROI!
Learn the A-Z on how to drive cheap traffic to your sites using Youtube. Bradley also gives a variety of different software you can use to make video ads easily.
There is also a module for Facebook Ads taught by Hernan Vasquez. This gives a good overview on how he sets up ads for a real local client and gives 35 days of updates!
Bradley Brenner promises to have you generating leads within 48 hours. It does seem a little fast to be seeing results. According to users, though, the results really are that fast. The system works well, as long as you complete the steps. So, no, it isn’t a scam.
The company behind the training – Semantic Mastery PR – has developed a good reputation for providing completely training.
The primary complaint that I have come across is the cost of the program. It isn’t cheap, but the system does work. If you cannot rank locally after doing this course, then you never will.
You don't have to rely on a bunch of fake testimonials to find out that the program works. Try it out for yourself, and you can check out the actual case studies. If you then feel it doesn't live up to our expectations, you can request a full refund.
The program itself provides comprehensive training. Other similar courses on the market might have more modules, but none really have the same amount of substance.
Is it worth the price? If you run a business and want to generate local leads, definitely. Google’s algorithm has become a lot more advanced, making it difficult for marketers to get high rankings organically. That means it has never been more difficult to get your business ranked.
Professional marketing advice in this regard can work out pricey, so the software should pay for itself in short order.
If you are a marketer, this training can help you to really boost your business. You will find out how to build landing pages that convert and how to use Google Adwords to ensure that you get traffic flowing to the site easily.
You can then sell the leads generated to local businesses to make some quick money. The whole process can be repeated several times over, allowing you to easily scale the business up.
You are offered two separate upsells:
Local SEO is a big market – many businesses understand the importance of ranking well in this area but have an idea where to start. This method allows you to learn how to customize results as much as you like.
For example, let’s say that your client has a bakery in the Bronx, New York. It would make sense for the business to rank highly in local searches for the Bronx specifically instead of, Staten Island, for example.
How many people would travel from Staten Island to the Bronx specifically to visit a bakery every day?
The other advantage of focusing on local results is that the results tend to be a lot more immediate. While it can take a few months to rank highly in a generic search result, it is much faster when it comes to a local search.
This is one program that I can highly recommend. It offers valuable training and a method that is easy to scale at a later stage. If you need a business boost or a quick injection of cash, this program offers a great way to get real results.
