Against the worst economic shut-down of the century!
Are you starting to feel the economic shut-down over COVID-19? Are you finding yourself more and more squeezed for cash as customers are forced to stay at home? Are you perhaps one of the millions of small business owners who have already had to lay off employees, and even shutter your doors entirely?
If any of this is true for you right now, you need the information on this page.
Because if there's one thing that's sure:
It's that business owners that fail to pivot and adapt to the changing tide, will be swallowed up, wrung out, and picked clean by the vultures and gulls, the bones left to bleach in the sun.
But I promise you, things are not as bleak as our (beloved) media makes it sound...
In fact, there's some businesses that are still Crushing It right now...
Yes, even in the midst of a major economic downturn that some experts are saying will make the Great Depression look like a solemn hiccup from Grandfather frog.
And on this page, I will show you in *gnarly detail* what these companies are doing to
Take the bull by the horns!
Hey, while you're here...
Wanna get 'down and dirty' with your online business building? Enter your info below, and roll up your sleeves...
Yup..just like that! Okay on to the....
Hold the horse, Just Who is this Buckaroo??
The name's Eric - Eric Schlabach. I live in east Texas with my amazing wife and business partner, Katrina.
I spent my teens and early twenties, in various "blue-collar" companies, including logging, concrete construction, and excavating. In 2017, I began to pursue my passion for marketing & business building as a part-time side hustle.
Today I am business partners in a 7-figure earning digital marketing agency, Troyer Marketing.
That's me and my gorgeous wife, Katrina.
Here's some key things you should know about me:
➡ From 2017 - '19, my first marketing/coaching client went from about $40k in annual revenue to $200k then on to her first $50k month in February 2020.
➡ Since my 2018 partnership with Troyer Marketing, my work has helped bring in millions of dollars in revenues for our various clients.
➡ We have served hundreds of small business owners across the US & Canada, and have been recognized as a 2020 top SEO company by Upcity.
But enough shameless self-promotion...Here's what my partner, Jonas, and a few others, have to say about me..
"I've had Eric build web pages for me before he started his own company, and I can say he's badass at copywriting, and is extremely careful about taking care of his customers! He always provides great customer service. I'm really proud of him for starting his own branch of Troyer Websites and I highly recommend his services!"
- Jonas Troyer
CEO of the Troyer Marketing brand, a 7-figure earning online-marketing company in northern Ohio
"We were looking to get a website done when a friend recommended Eric at Troyer Websites of Texas. Eric is very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly! We are very pleased with the website that he designed for us, and his skills in digital marketing. His service is excellent and he is quick to reply to any questions. We would certainly recommend Eric to anyone!"
- Kathy Coblentz
Small business owner in Greenville, TN
"I had Troyer Websites [of Texas] design a website for my company. We specialize in transportation and setup of portable storage buildings, so it's a pretty niche market with specific needs. Eric built a website that is designed specifically for the shed hauling industry. He did an amazing job and I'm fully expecting our work to increase substantially because of this website design."
- Paul Stalnaker
CEO of Stalnaker Transport, a large-scale shed hauling company in South Carolina
"I am so happy I chose Eric to build my website! He will not settle for any less than the best! I receive many compliments on my website and sales have greatly increased because of his dedication to quality and performance. When I am ready for my next website, he is definitely the guy I will ask to build it!"
- Norma Proctor
Multiple six-figure income earning small business owner in east Texas - who's also a single Mom to three teenage girls.
Okay - On with the story, Little Joe...
>>How<< are these companies not just Surviving, but Thriving as everything else crashes around them?
Well, obviously there's a large variety of factors.. sales skills, market postition, etc, but in short -
They are using the power of the internet to Maximize their market share.
Behold: Some case studies to digest -
➡ Case Study #1.
Our own company, Troyer Marketing.
January 2020 was one of our best months in business, with sales climbing well over the 6-figure mark. The vast majority of those sales were made because of our online & virtual presence - Email, social media, simple website funnels, videos, etc.
(I mean - we are an online marketing company after all..)
Here's the screenshot Jonas sent me after tallying our monthly totals -
➡ Case Study #2.
Marketing & business guru, Grant Cardone
In a more recent (now widely criticized) publicity stunt, Grant released a live Facebook video, claiming he was bankrupt, and all his assets were being seized as an elaborate April Fools joke. Now I'm definitely Not condoning lying to your audience or using deceitful methods to gain attention.
My point however...
Just that video, caused his name and brand to become one of the top most-searched Google terms in less than 24 hours and one of the most-talked-about subjects on the internet.
Love him, or hate him, Cardone clearly demonstrated his ability to get people talking about him even in the midst of the crisis - all by leveraging the power of his online market.
Hold up, Hold up, Hold Up!

"Will marketing on the internet work for Me?"
Ah, and there it is - the multi-million dollar question...
And friend, here's the ugly truth most marketing gurus won't tell you:
There's only One Guarantee in this rodeo - It involves Risk.
If you're unwilling to take a risk, than No, marketing your business online will probably not work for you.
In fact, if that's the case, you should probably not be in business for yourself - no offense.
You are one of that rare breed of man or woman who goes places, and does things, who leads with vision, and who takes Calculated risks to drive their company forward..
Than the answer is "Yes"!
See it doesn't matter that much *What* business you're in.. even physical service based businesses..
If you are the 2nd kind of person, you are the kind of person that will benefit from online business building.

...The 'How' of Marketing Online!
What exactly are these companies doing to continue growing their businesses during the "Bad Economy"?
To begin with, let's take a look at the three basic Tools used to build businesses online:
- Websites - (such as this one)
- Social Media platforms - Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, etc
- Email (and/or text) messaging
And then there are two more main methods that "ride saddle" on the first three:
- Paid advertising
- Search Engine Optimization
So let's break each piece down a little further yet..
Websites are -most of the time- the "hub" of your marketing wheel. The reason being, your website is (or should be!) the most comprehensive piece of information about you on the internet. At minimum it is a landing page with a Call to Action to call your business, signup for your email list, buy your product...you get the idea.
➡ Social Media
Social media is a powerful modem of connection to your ideal audience. Most of them are completely free to use, and feature powerful advertising tools that allow you to grow and connect with your audience on a deeply personal level.
Email is old as the hills, and some "gurus" will tell you it is "Dead! " However, its not dead until its dead, and right now, email is one of the hottest ways to connect and drive sales online - If done right.
➡ Paid Advertising
Many social media platforms come free with potent advertising tools, with dedicated dashboards and deep targeting abilities to get in front of the right people at the right time. Further, Google offers similar abilities with its Adwords platform. In most cases you will need a website or landing page (such as this one) to send your traffic to.
➡ Search Engine Optimization
SEO is the process of getting your website ranking in Google's search algorithm. Being on the front page of Google search for your industry's search term is akin to winning the lottery for many small business owners. And that's the whole game - If you're a hair stylist, you want to be on the front page of "hair stylists near me" when someone searches it out.
Now then, we've got that out of the way, so the next question is....
Where to start??
This is a vast territory filled with as many opinions as Donald Trump himself... but let's break it down into what we've found to be the core principles:
- Start with what you have. Find the "lowest hanging fruit" that will produce results immediately. For many businesses, this will be a simple website, followed by a social media presence.
- Simplicity is King! The rule of thumb is to diversify enough that you're not relying on any one platform for all leads and/or revenue, but not so complicated that it takes a rocket scientist, a priest and a rabbi to run it.
- Leave the low-quality for the hacks, losers, and wannabe's.. 99% of the time, you'll get what you pay for. Invest into quality, proven systems from reputable companies and get quality, proven results.
If I were into cussing, here's where I would drop a few...
Because $%#@ - you are more dedicated to your business than 99% of the folks who never make it far enough to read this! If by now, you're ready to talk to a live person on How to implement online marketing, just click the button below:

No? Alrighty, onward ranger..
Let's dive deeper.
"Start with what you have"
Ask yourself - where am I already in business? What are my immediate and long-term business goals? What marketing pieces (if any) do I have already?
The answers to these questions should give you a good idea of what your best next step is.
"Simplicity is King"
Next, ask yourself - How can I implement my next steps in the most simple and immediately effective way?
"Leave the low-quality behind"
Bright-Shiny-Object syndrome is a very real condition - don't fall for it! Your business is professional, and your marketing should be a dead-serious investment. This is where you want to be "edg-a-ma-cated" regarding hired services - Its up to you to take your due diligence to avoid getting scammed or ripped-off.
Side note: I might sound like a goofy southern cowboy, but fact is, this last bit especially, is worth its weight in gold.
A good rule of thumb is to check what kind of web presence the company has, (if its too good to be true, it probably is), what their track record is (since 2017, we've helped drive online business for hundreds, soon to be thousands, of business owners) and what their clients say about them (We have collected hundreds of five-star reviews across our various platforms).
With that, it's on to...
Decision Time, Boss!
In this report we've established that:
- Businesses who fail to pivot and adapt to the changing economic landscape have a large chance of failing completely in the soon to be coming future.
