Vero Beach, Florida (PressExposure) June 06, 2011 -- Being a merchant advisor for Houston based, Merchant Money, will give Patrick Prohaska the tools his customers need to succeed in today's market. Offering merchant accounts, merchant cash advance, factoring and now internet video marketing, he is fully equipped to help local business succeed.
"Since our company keeps and maintains a 1st page google listing, helping the local merchants succeed with their internet marketing, will be my passion!"
With the growing challenges in today's market, the small business owner needs a team member that can handle the merchant side of his business, so they can focus on the day to day task of running their business. Offering financial solutions, along with a new and proven marketing strategy in one package, gives the business owner the tools they need to succeed.
Traditional marketing methods such as radio, TV, newspapers and the yellow pages have become more expensive and less effective in aquiring new customers. Since 81% of prospects search online before they choose a service provider, it is imperative to have a strong google listing.
Albert Einstein observed,"The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level we were at when we created them." The time has come to adapt and evolve in the marketplace.
After leaving the frozen foods business,(which he truly loved) after 15 years, Patrick decided to get off the road, and focus on his true passion of helping business owners. Learning to listen to people, and their needs, becomes second nature when you are in sales and marketing. With this talent and a passion for coaching and helping people, becoming a merchant advisor for Merchant Money was a perfect fit. He also encourages his clients to keep learning and growing as people, so they can become better problem solvers for their customers.
With a background in real estate and the insurance industries, he also can relate to many of the problems that a changing economy brings to these industries. In the past, traditional methods of marketing, along with knocking on many doors and using the telephone, kept the sales and marketing pipeline full. The internet changed all that, with the ability to market to the entire planet. Since everything seems to run in cycles, the time to focus on the local market is more important now than ever. Budgets tend to be less than before and banks are not lending very freely. This brings a need to spend your marketing dollars, wisely. I like to tell my clients that for every dollar they spend with me, they should expect ten dollars in return!
