I interviewed Ramey Bell from Tech Reputation โ€“ www.techreputation.com. Tech Reputation automates the process of getting reviews posted on the major review sites. They also have a process to alert you to potentially bad reviews and help you intercept those reviews so you can potentially turn them around.

Tech Reputation was founded in 2017 by Ramey Bell, an IT professional with over twenty years of experience in marketing. Ramey has owned and operated a computer repair shop in Oak Harbor, Washington for the last six years, using those marketing skills to grow his business. He found that having an automated system in place to capture positive reviews led to improved word-of-mouth referrals and increased revenue.

Fully understanding the time limitations all IT owners face, he decided to offer an automated service and marketing system that enables owners to quickly understand their current reputation and manage all of it from a single place.

Google pays attention to about fifty sites that publish reviews. Tech Reputation automates the process of getting positive reviews from your clients.

I caught up with my brother, co-author, and fellow coach recently. It seems odd to interview my brother, but I have massive respect for Manuel. In addition to practicing a work/life balance that few achieve, he is a true master of process control and an amazing business coach.

Manuel Palachuk

You can find out more about his coaching programs at www.manuelpalachuk.com โ€“ and more about our ChannelPro shenanigans at https://events.channelpronetwork.com/.

We start with a bit of a deep dive on coaching. Many people donโ€™t know exactly what they want from coaching. All they really know is that โ€œstuffโ€ is broken and they need help. Manuel explains how he uses and โ€œagileโ€ approach to help companies identify goals and make quick changes to move in that direction.

We also covered mergers and acquisitions in the SMB space. Most important statement in this interview: Companies in the middle of a sale or acquisition are consumed by chaos for six to twelve months. That means you might have an advantage for a period of time when your competitors are up to their eyeballs with the details of a merger or acquisition.

. . . This also ties into the last podcast with Nigel M0ore.

I had a great interview with Nigel Moore from My Technology Business (The Tech Tribe).

Nigel Moore

Nigel joins us from an hour north of Sydney, Australia. He tells us the story of how he sold his managed service business AND maximized the price by creating standardized processes. Great line from this interview: When you move the sale from simply acquiring clients to a strategic buy, then the prices goes way up!

Last year Nigel launched the โ€œTech Tribeโ€ community โ€“ officially My Technology Business. His community provides a wide variety of resources, including video trainings and downloadable templates. In this interview, Nigel walks through one of his favorite forms โ€“ a client screening to determine whether or not itโ€™s worthwhile to take on a client.

. . . Plus stories and a lot more. Enjoy!
