Since this is the first post on 5XMarketing.com I thought I’d introduce myself and give you an idea of what you can expect to find on this website.
Who am I?
My name is Leon Turetsky and I am an entrepreneur from Boston MA, USA. I currently own and run 3 businesses – 2 online brands and 1 physical location business. And there is a new venture I have just started (will be revealed here soon)
My online brands:
Started 7 years ago (My first business)
Membership website where we teach people to Ballroom dance online with videos.
Business model: Subscription
Bought the website 2.5 years ago from the owner.
Selling one-off online dance courses in all styles of dance: Hip Hop, Club dance, Ballroom, etc…
Business model: Online Courses
My local business:
3. Leon’s Dance Center – Leonsdance.com
Started about 5 years ago. This is my local dance studio where I still teach.
Business model: Local Ballroom dance studio
As you may have noticed these websites are related to “Dancing”. That is because before I got into all of this “CRAZY WORLD” of online marketing (which has become a passion of mine), I was a professional Ballroom dancer and I still am. For most of my life I trained with the best dance teachers in the world and competed across North America. Last year I finally retired from pro Ballroom competitions and now I have more time to devote to my online ventures. I still teach in my local studio but just not as much anymore. Right now I am very focused on my current online brands and future online brands (like this site!).
What will I blog about?
My goal on this website is to share the lessons I have learned from being an entrepreneur for the past 8 years and share with you what is working and what is not. I plan to be as transparent as I can about my struggles and wins in my own businesses, so that you can hopefully apply them to your own business/es and accelerate your growth.
Chances are if you are here – you are at least interested in Marketing/Building a business, but if you are not, then this website is not for you.
Anyone with any business experience will tell you that as entrepreneurs we’ve got to wear many hats and learn lots of different skills, so my goal here is to share many of my lessons and personal experiences with the following topics:
_ Marketing strategies
– Content marketing
– SEO & Link building
– Conversion optimization
– Upselling/Cross Selling
– Landing page optimization
– Email marketing
– Mind-set for success
– Tools of the trade (The ones I use)
Please fell free to leave your comments at anytime and I will respond to as many as I can.
