Tranquility: MASSAGESMITH – Interfanatic Customer Spotlight

MASSAGESMITH, for our Customer Spotlight on Tranquility, an Interfanatic Quality

When we develop patience, we find that we develop a reserve of calm and tranquility.

His Holiness Dalai Lama XIV

The goal is peace. To rest easy, knowing all is well. That’s why we work, to rest easy that the families we support will remain supported. To help our customers rest easy, knowing that we’re taking care of our part of their business so they can focus on supporting their families.

Peace requires patience. But the more patience you have, the more calm and tranquility you have, too. So says the Dalai Lama – and he might just know.

When you seek tranquility, find patience first. When you seek calm, go to the MASSAGESMITH, Eric Smith.

Eric recently rebranded his successful massage practice. He’s a great local businessman we’ve worked with for a couple of years now. Another customer we love to refer and we’re pleased to help.

And when I’m looking for more patience, I think of Eric’s calm demeanor and giving mentality. He’s one of the good eggs. Naturally, the oasis he provides, whether in his office or in his patients’ home, is one of peace, calm, and tranquility.

Tranquility: An Interfanatic Quality

Try as we might, everything is not always tranquil. It’s a goal – a journey. And on all of our journeys, at times there is a rocky road. But that is our goal, both for ourselves and for the customers we serve.

When things get rough, I think of the Dalai Lama’s words. I try to increase my patience and empathy for others who have a difficult time. I try to think of how I can help their situation, and I act on it.

We all do here. It is our goal to bring tranquility to our customers, that we might bask in some of that, too.

MASSAGESMITH: A Respite of Tranquility

Eric Smith, the head massage therapist and owner of MASSAGESMITH, goes out of his way to bring you tranquility. Massage therapy is about relaxing sore, tired muscles, and giving them space to heal. Smith provides the environment necessary to bring about that relaxation and healing, whether you go to his office in Torrance, CA, or he comes to your home.

“Massage therapy is about relaxing sore, tired muscles, and giving them space to heal. MASSAGESMITH provides the environment necessary to bring about that relaxation and healing…”

During COVID-19, he has exceeded all safe practices to keep both himself and his clientele safe. He goes the extra step to ensure you feel relaxed and ready for a tranquil oasis away from hectic and stressful life.

Beyond that, his demeanor is one of calm and peace. He is a kind man, happily married with a great life. He’s somewhat new to Torrance, and fitting in well. He also engages in a large number of community activities through his Rotary Club and other philanthropic activities.

We’ve worked with Eric Smith a few times over the past couple of years, most recently to give his business a boost through Search Advertising. Using a modest budget, we’re driving more traffic to his website, and getting him more appointments.

And it’s a good feeling to help a local businessman! It’s a good feeling to help him feel more tranquil when he works so hard for others to revel in the tranquility he brings them.

Interfanatic Service Focus: Interfanatic The Works Marketing Package

Like Baron Rothschild said, “The time to buy is when there’s blood in the streets.” Well, there’s blood in the streets. If you’re able, you should be spending now. Buying your competitors.

I know, I know, the dog eat dog world is hardly a tranquil one. But you can scale back, or you can double down, and set yourself up for the next decade. Of course, it’s your choice.

Not sure where to start? No worries. We are. We’ll evaluate your situation and give you multiple options for the perfect digital marketing plan within your budget. Not sure what your budget should be? No problem, we’ll help you get results within your comfort zone.

This is what we do. Trust us. Trust the process. We’ll help you get where you want to go.

A beautiful day with friends near a calm mountain lake. All that could have made it better was Yo-yo Ma on his cello. Or Eric Smith handing out free massages! Ooh, I like that idea. I’ll keep it in mind for our next vacation.

Tenacity: Intuitive Touch Massage & Wellness – Interfanatic Customer Spotlight

Eric Smith's Intuitive Touch Massage and Wellness for our Customer Spotlight on Tenacity, an Interfanatic Quality

…it is your talent and tenacity that will carve out, shape and seal your possibilities and destiny.

Rasheed Ogunlaru

Talent and tenacity will seal your destiny. In an ideal world, that is definitely true. I’m so pleased Ogunlaru has this optimism now.

Last week, the words of an extremist, this week; inspiring words from an ideal viewpoint. For many Americans, this idea is true.

Talent helps you work smart. Tenacity helps you work hard. One without the other is insufficient in our overpopulated world.

There was a time when talent was sufficient to get by. There was a time when tenacity was enough to get by. But today, in 2020, you need talent, tenacity, and quite a bit of luck to thrive.

Tenacity alone is not enough to seal your destiny. But it does play a huge part.

Tenacity: An Interfanatic Quality

There are many times we want to give up. And you can if you want. Doing so allows your destiny to change. If you want to control your own destiny, you must keep after your goals – to control your own destiny.

There have been projects where I wanted to throw in the towel. Things just weren’t working out. They client wasn’t paying. The designer simply didn’t deliver. But as I’ve found so many times, with tenacity all things can be overcome.

And the result is a growing book of work we can be very proud of.

We often love coming up with a novel way of tackling a problem. For most things, we stick to what works. But when you try new things, they don’t always work the first time. And in that way, progress is powered by tenacity.

As Eric Smith knows well….

Eric Smith & Intuitive Touch Massage and Wellness – Tenacity in Action

When Eric Smith relocated to Southern California a few years ago, he knew tenacity would work in his favor. When he created Intuitive Touch Massage and Wellness, based in Torrance, California, he knew it wouldn’t be easy to survive in a packed locale. But he also knew he could do it.

There are many massage professionals in Southern California. Eric brings his own brand of tenacity and a large vision – and plenty of goodness – to making his business a success.

“Armed with [an Interfanatic SEO Sit Rep and] … his tenacity, he’s improving his website’s performance and bringing in more customers.”

We had the pleasure of working with Eric last year when we helped him to understand his website better through one of our Situation Reports. We did a SEO Situation Report to show him decisively what was working, what wasn’t, and where his competitors stacked up. Armed with this new information and some of his tenacity, he’s improving his website’s performance and bringing in more customers.

We showed him where his website ranked in SERPs (search engine result pages) for local and generic terms important to his business. We then explained what was needed to improve those results.

Good white hat SEO definitely requires tenacity. And we know how to do that.

Tenacity – Know Where you Stand with an Interfanatic Basic SEO Sit Rep

After the success of our Basic SEO Sit Rep, we expanded our Situation Report Service into other areas. We now do SitReps for SEO, Website Performance, and Marketing Message. We also do four tiers of SitRep for each: Free, Basic, Power and The Works.

Free is a quick help for somebody who needs a hand and can’t afford to pay for service. We do a quick check and as we’re experts at all this. With a look at your site, we give you the what may be the easiest or biggest area where your site needs improvement.

Compared to Free, Basic is much more comprehensive. We spend a couple of hours working with the client to understand their needs and give them a snapshot of their current situation, including multiple areas for improvement to reach their goals.

Power is the same work, but again, much more comprehensive – more time invested. We invest about twice the time we do on a Basic Report. The Works is again, much more comprehensive than Power even, and may include all three areas of performance – SEO, technical, and messaging.

If we can help you, we want to. We feel successful when we help you become successful.

We helped Eric, and it was awesome.

How can we help you?

After some very serious topics, I thought I would talk about something even more serious this week. You see, for some people, the above requires great determination. But because of my personal tenacity (combined with diligence in working out… sorta) my training has brought me to a place where the above is easily conquered. Not many have the ability to take that on like I do. Others get stomach aches when I’m just getting started. My wife prepared for me this beautiful sundae. And if you’re jealous, all is right in the world: you most definitely should be.
