Santa Rosa, CA (PressExposure) July 14, 2009 -- Don Raffety, a highly experienced small businessman and construction industry professional, has joined internet marketing powerhouse CarbonCopyPRO, the organization that supports Wealth Masters International (WMI) financial consultants. "I'm looking to expand on experience gained over the years," Raffety said. "Although this is a different approach, this is still marketing. Right now, I see a very large window for expansion, plus low overhead after initial startup costs. And the potential payoff is unlimited. On top of that, it's always nice to be able to give back to the community. I think it's great to get next to an idea that allows one to be in such a place."
CarbonCopyPRO was founded by internet marketing legends and dynamically successful online entrepreneurs Jay Kubassek and Aaron Parkinson to automate the lead generation process for WMI consultants. The firm handles back office tasks such as website development and management, copywriting and content development, publicity and public relations, as well as call center operations, thereby freeing the consultant to focus on other, higher value activities such as building relationships and closing sales. The resulting stream of high quality, qualified leads helps WMI consultants to jump start their business and to realize explosive growth over time. The firm recently announced an emerging new focus as an entrepreneurial incubator, providing end-to-end training and development services for its members.
Raffety has for the most part been in the construction industry since 1976, and is currently running a drywall company. His focus remains on the management side, with either in-house crews or outside contractors handling production. Along the way he has also dabbled in real estate, and multi level marketing (MLM), with mixed results. "Ninety seven percent of everyone who starts an MLM business fails at it," Raffety said. "The problem is they lack a system for success. That's why I joined CarbonCopyPRO."
The entrepreneur is looking forward to a new line of work, and some of the things he'll be leaving behind. "The paperwork load--and taxes--that the government places on a small business can literally crush the life out of it," Raffety said. "The assorted forms 941, FUTA taxes, SUTA taxes and 1099's are some examples, and really just the tip of the iceberg. My new career will be a welcomed change."
