In 2009 while selling broadcast media and marketing services from Sacramento to Modesto, a common response I heard was “Greg, we just don’t have the budget to do that”, and rightfully so, as Sacramento and the rest of the country was in the depths of the financial meltdown, business owners were scared that any money that left their pockets may never come back.
My father-in-law had introduced me to payment processing in 2003 right after I graduated from Chico State. Instead of pursuing it as my primary career, I put it on the back burner and followed my passion in marketing and advertising, helping small businesses grow using radio & television advertising.
Right about now you’re probably thinking to yourself; “so what the hell does credit card processing have to do with whether I should hire your as my ad agency”? Great question! I’m coming full circle, bear with me.
For years I noticed many of my local clients complaining about credit card processing fees and the crappy treatment they received from their processing company, whether it was their local bank or a nationwide merchant service provider.
I began reviewing their credit card processing statements, appalled at the amount my clients were being overcharged, from rates to leasing equipment. From this HelpingMerchants.com was founded and a win-win-win situation emerged.
I found I could easily save business owners money on the payment processing that they could in turn purchase advertising through me to grow their business.
