We Don’t Just Create Fantastic Websites

WE GET YOU MORE CLIENTS… IDEAL CLIENTS

Your website is your #1 marketing tool. If your website isn’t doing what it’s supposed to do — that is, driving traffic, piquing the interest of IDEAL clients, and making it super easy and attractive for your ideal clients to take action, then it’s a huge waste of your time and money.

Hi, I’m Heidi DeCoux. Today, I am mostly known as a Marketing Maven, but what you may not know about me is that once upon a time I was a Professional Organizer.

When I was first getting started as an organizer, I had a full-time job and was building my organizing business on the side.

At some point, I got the courage to quit my job and work “all out” on my new business. I had a BIG vision, but was without the safety net of a job, I needed to make it work. I immersed myself in the world of marketing so that I could go big! I spent thousands of dollars AND hundreds of hours on valuable marketing courses, programs, and workshops.

I was running my business by day and toiling away at marketing strategies by night. There were many late nights!

All of these great marketing courses were teaching me that I needed a website. I asked around and was eventually referred to a web designer who was a friend of a friend. I set up a meeting with him, wrote him a check, and he started building me a beautiful website.

Have you ever heard the saying “What you don’t know can’t hurt you”? Well, that’s dead wrong. I didn’t know that web designers are not marketers and for the most part they have NO IDEA how to build an effective website that attracts your ideal clients and converts them into paying clients.

Designers make pretty things, and pretty things aren’t guaranteed to put money in your bank account, unless they are backed by a proven layout and strategy.

In the blink of an eye I had wasted $3,000 on a completely ineffective, worthless (but beautiful!) website.

Arg!

After I figured out everything that was wrong with my website, I created a list of changes I wanted made to my website and gave the list to my web designer, which of course I had to pay extra for.

Double Arg!

He then proceeded to argue with me that the changes I wanted him to make would “interrupt the design integrity”. That’s fancy designer-speak for “It won’t look as pretty”. To which I responded, “Yep, I know, but it will make me money and I have a mortgage to pay”.

Begrudgingly he made the changes I requested and almost immediately my website started producing better results. Ideal clients started to trickle in.

Unfortunately I had to spend an additional $1,500 getting the list of changes made. So all in all my new professional organizing website cost me $4,500, and that was back in 2006. Ouch.

The story only gets worse.

In the marketing programs and courses I was taking I started learning about the importance of having an Irresistible Free Offer (IFO), a matching e-Newsletter Template (e-Newsletter is a catchy word for an online newsletter), a marketing/sales funnel of auto-responder emails set up on auto-pilot, and traffic strategies in place so that new ideal prospective clients can find your website.

Side note: if your eyes are glazing over at all of the marketing terms in that last paragraph, it’s okay, just bear with me for a few more moments.

The good news was that I realized my website could be even more effective if I had these additional elements in place. But the bad news was that I had to spend MORE money to get these additional important elements in place.

Arrrggg!

Oh but that wasn’t all of the bad news. I also realized that I was completely dependent on my web designer. He had built me a full HTML website which meant that in order to make any changes to it, I would have to pay him to do so (or another programmer that knows how to write HTML code). I could not make ANY changes to my own website, ever, unless I learned to write code.

You can probably imagine how frustrated I was by this point.

All I wanted to do was run my little business that I loved and carve out a living doing it. Was that too much to ask?

Because I was really freaking committed to making my business work, back to the drawing board I went. I blew up my expensive mistake of a website and started over.

You read that right. $4,500 down the drain along with hours and hours of my time. As hard as that was to swallow, I knew in my heart that my current website was holding me back from the success I desired.

Armed with a lot more knowledge and know-how, I started the process over again with a new WordPress web designer. One year and another two grand later, I had finally built a successful and profitable business. I had a great looking and highly effective WordPress website that I could update all by myself. I had a high-converting IFO (email opt-in offer), an e-Newsletter Template that matched my website, follow-up auto-responder emails, a bi-weekly e-Newsletter that I was sending out to my email list, and some effective traffic strategies in place that were sending new ideal clients to my website everyday.

It was an expensive, frustrating journey that in the end made me feel like I had earned a Ph.D in marketing and web design.

Within 18 months of starting over with a new website and online platform, I built an email list of over 10,000 people. I had a waiting list of clients. I was charging a higher rate than all of the organizers in my area. And I successfully launched a line of organizing products that I sold through my website.

My friends and clients took note of my creation and began asking me to help them with their businesses. So, on the side, I began consulting clients on how to market their small businesses and what type of website and online marketing platform they needed.

I realized that I was not alone. There were thousands of small business owners that had wasted TONS of money, just like I did, because there was a huge gap in the marketplace for affordable effective websites and online marketing solutions.

I decided to fill that gap. I started a boutique marketing firm, CSM Talent. It grew fast! Within a year I had a staff of eight and have never looked back. I absolutely LOVE giving entrepreneurs exactly what they need to be wildly successful.

What People Are Saying

willy

Within 90 days of my new website going live, I experienced a 34% increase in revenue! I now recommend CSM Talent to everyone.

– Nichi Hirsch

Brooke

The delightful part of working with CSM Talent, other than the very reasonable price, was how friendly and helpful they are. They are very good at what they do but they are human at the same time. I feel as if I am working with a friend, even though we have never met in person before. I am the kind of person that does a lot of research before I enter into type of agreement or purchase. CSM Talent came highly recommended to me and I love how they make things as easy as possible.

– Brooke Standley

Shauna

We love our new website that CSM Talent created for us!!! It exemplifies who we are and what we do. Our project manager Kristy was such a pleasure to work with. She recommended additional tweaks to our website design which made it even better.

– Shauna and Dean Treichel

WILLY

Before I worked with CSM Talent, I had a website that wasn’t bringing in any traffic. It was very basic in nature and not getting the kind of business I had hoped for. I’m so grateful I was able to take advantage of the opportunity to work with them! Not only were they affordable, but they were GREAT to work with. They turned my boring website to a dynamic website that now expresses the most important things; who I am what services I have to offer.

– WILLY BURDEN

kathy

I wanted a website where I could make changes easily on my own. GIFTE had a partnered with CSM Talent to offer a website/email template package for travel agents at an affordable price, just what I needed!

All I had to do was provide some wording and photos and everything else was done for me. From the beginning to end Kristy, my project manager, was there to answer any questions and make changes that I had requested.

After the website was done, they provided a video tutorial to explain the features of the site and how to make changes. I definitely would recommend the services CSM Talent and would not hesitate to use them again in the future.

– Kathy Takushi

Everyone at Marketing For Travel Agents has been a pleasure to work with! It was a smooth experience. I have been getting a ton of great feedback on my new website. Thank you for all that you do.

– Janine Queenin

Here Are Your Options:

  • You could spend months trying to build a website yourself, testing IFO’s, crafting and testing auto-responder emails, taking marketing courses that teach effective layouts and strategies, and designing graphics.
  • You could hire a cheap web designer that probably doesn’t understand your travel business and how to set up your online platform in a way that puts money in your bank account month after month.
  • You could hire a traditional marketing firm that will most likely get you good results and you’ll spend at least $6,000.
  • You could grab the Website Package that we designed exclusively for YOU and discounted over 50%!

Are You Serious About Attracting
More Ideal Clients?

If yes, then today is the day to get your Website Package. There is NO other type of package available that is this comprehensive and effective, for this price point.

The Tourism Intelligence International reported that Americans are predicted to spend 9% more on travel this year and the majority of that 9% will be luxury travelers.

Do you want a slice of that pie? Or do you want to let your competitors get all of those new luxury travelers as clients because you don’t have the right type of website and online marketing in place?

Here Are The Eight Beautiful Designs
You Can Choose From

Your template will be customized for you, and designed to attract YOUR ideal clients. We start with a template in order to keep the cost of this website package low. If we built your site from scratch, we would need to charge quite a bit more because of the labor costs.

With that said, your new website will be FULLY customizable. It can grow and evolve with you as you grow and evolve your business. We’ll give you a nice set of customizations included in your website package purchase, and then for any additional customizations that you want made, now or in the future, we’ll give you 20% off our normal rate — or you can make the customizations yourself, or have someone else do them for you.

You will own and manage your own website, which means that you do not have to purchase any additional website services from us if you don’t want to. And we will give you tutorial videos that show you how to make changes and update your new website (it’s very easy to do!).

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take to build my new website?

3-6 weeks from the time you submit all of your content and info for your new website. We’ll give you a really easy-to-follow checklist that will help you prepare your information and submit it.

What’s the difference between the Standard Website and a Custom Website?

A Standard Website is built using a template, which saves a lot of labor – and therefore saves you money. Also, it’s plug-and-play, which makes it faster and easier for you to get your new website up and running. A Custom Website is fully custom, which means that you are starting with a white canvas and have a LOT more decisions you need to make and the process is significantly more lengthy. With the Standard Website option, you don’t have any restrictions on the design or content of the website. Often times people think that because it’s built using a template they are restricted on their design options – that’s not the case. Your Standard Website is FULLY customizable. And with both options you can update many parts of your website yourself. We give you tutorial videos that show you how to make many changes on your own (and it’s really easy to do!).

I already have a website through my host company. Can we combine the two websites or link to my other website?

Yes, we can link the two websites if you would like. And if you have a booking engine that you want to promote on your new website and link to it – that’s fine too!

Do I fully own my new website?

Yes!! Your new website is 100% yours! You can do anything you want with it, you fully own it and operate it. It’s like ordering a new car. You pick out the car, the color, the features, pay for it, have it delivered, and then it’s YOUR car. You never have to go back to the dealership if you don’t want to, you can sell it, you can change it, it’s 100% yours.

Who manages my new website?

You do. The website is 100% yours and therefore it is 100% your responsibility. We have an optional Back-End Maintenance Plan available that is $46/quarter and includes having us fully update the back-end of your website, run diagnostic tests, test your backup system, and so on – once each quarter. We’ll tell you more about that optional service after your new custom website is live. You can choose to update your website yourself, or have someone else do it. This service is 100% optional and if you do choose to use the service, you can cancel it at anytime. As far as the front-end updates and changes that you want made to your website, you can either do those yourself using the tutorial videos we give you access to, or you can hire us to do them for you at 20% off our normal hourly rate, or you can have someone else do them for you. The website is yours and you can choose how you want to keep both the back-end and front-end updated.

I am an Academy Member. Can I still purchase a website if I cancel my Academy Membership?

Yes, you do not have to be an Academy Member to purchase a website package. We of course recommend that you are an Academy Member because the Academy gives you all of the training and resources you need to attract ideal DREAM clients to your new website.

How long does it take to build my new website?

3-6 weeks from the time you submit all of your information to us. Once you purchase your website package, you’ll get access to a checklist that walks you through the process of collecting and submitting your information to us. You’ll also be assigned a Project Manager who is available to answer any questions you have during the process.

Do I need to be a tech savvy person to have my own website?

Nope! We give you access to short easy-to-follow tutorial videos that show you how to make changes to your website. And you can have us make changes for you. We’ll give you 20% off our normal hourly rate. Or you can have another web designer or programmer make your changes for you.

As the Saying Goes

If you keep doing what you’re doing,
you’ll keep getting what you’re getting.
Instead do something today
that your future self with thank you for.
