Mike, let’s us start by telling us about your business.
Hello, my name is Mike Munter and I’m an internet marketing consultant. I help businesses and individuals market themselves on the internet.
Please tell us how you make sure your customers will become raving fans of your company?
I do what I say I’ll do and never promise something I can’t deliver. I’m honest and upfront with regard to what to expect from your internet marketing campaign.
Please tell us the one thing that separates your business from the competition.
I look for things that work. That might sound simplistic, but the internet in 2020 is still like the wild west. I provide a niche service to my clients and I’m also well networked with other consultants who specialize in their own areas. I refer a lot of business out and its always sent to someone I – and you – can trust.
And to finish this section, please tell us what the one major key to your company’s success is?
I specialize in very specific internet marketing niches where this is little or no competition.
For our readers just starting to build a company, what advice can you give entrepreneurs just starting out with a new venture?
Drill down and get specific. Don’t shy away from something just because someone else is doing it. Do it better and/or drill down and serve a more narrow niche. This allows you to become a specialist and your expertise is more valuable.
For entrepreneurs seeking to build a business as successful as yours, what big piece of advice can you give them when times get a little challenging?
Relax, take a breath and try to look at the problem from a different angle. Reach out to your trusted circle of colleagues and ask for help. Then give it another go. Another thing I’d like to add is to start small and make sure something is working before investing too much time or money. I’m really into scaling things, but I test things out manually first before building systems.
In today’s fast changing business environment, how do you stay abreast of things?
Stay in the trenches.
What is your “Why”? In one sentence, why do you get up in the morning?
So, I can have a cup of coffee 😊 Seriously, I like making money by putting systems in place. It’s fun for me.
In one sentence, what is the most important thing one has to do to be a great leader?
Allow your team to see things from your perspective, then empower them to make decisions based on that vision.
In one sentence, describe how important your customers are to your business?
Many of my clients become friends, so in addition to doing business, there’s that.
In one sentence, describe a positive way that technology can make the world a better place?
AI. The things Elon Musk is doing with Neuralink are very exciting to me.
In one sentence, tell us how something positive to motivate our readers?
The internet gives everyone a chance to be an entrepreneur. Whatever you enjoy and are good at, you can turn that into a business simply by getting a website and sharing your knowledge. If you give great advice, you’ll build an audience and then you can earn money from that. In fact, I’m looking for someone to mentor in this area if anyone reading is interested. Reach out via mikemunter AT gmail DOT com.
In one sentence, tell us how you start your day to get ready?
Coffee and check email.
In one sentence, describe how you handle rejection and setback? Try not to take it personally.
Focus on what you’ve learned from it.
In one sentence, describe what your hiring philosophy is?
Hire for attitude, not skills. Skills can be taught, attitude can’t.
In one sentence, describe how you keep your sanity in a competitive business environment?
I’d run my business by these 3 words – Easy, Fun, Systems. As long as any project meets those criteria, I pursue it.
Mike Munter, thank you so much for participating in the DotCom Magazine Entrepreneurs Spotlight Series. We really appreciate your answers and letting people know more about your business, leadership, and entrepreneurship. Please stay healthy, and thanks again!
