061 | Why Most Businesses Fail – with Kris Reid

The main reason businesses fail is simply because they can’t get enough customers. Kris Reid of Ardor SEO is streaming in today from Saigon, Vietnam to speak about the power of SEO in gaining and keeping customers.

Kris has developed a simple system for business owners to get their message in front of their ideal customers, in order to predictably grow their business. He has designed and implemented this system for a variety of people, including Mike Michalowicz, world-renowned business author, and Avery Carl, one of the top 100 realtors in the US. He’s also spoken with John Lee Dumas, host of Entrepreneurs On Fire, the biggest business podcast on the planet. This proven system is repeatable for any business, in any industry, and Kris is here to share it with us today.
