It was a cold dark night. I was sitting alone, trying to figure out what my next move was going to be. It’s a rough road out here as a business owner; so much online marketing to be done. I didn’t know which way to turn for help.

Then in walked a stranger…

Stranger: “So, I heard you own a business.”

Me: “That’s right, I do.”

Stranger: “Let me guess, you’re doing your own online marketing?”

I glared and gave him a curt nod.

Stranger: “And how’s that working out for you?”

Me: “Not so good, but I guess you already knew that.”

Stranger: “Well I guess you could say I have what some would call the ‘sixth sense’ for struggling business owners trying to make it on their own.”

His words cut like a knife, but he wasn’t wrong. The truth hurts sometimes.

Stranger: “You know, there is a better way. You can save yourself all that time, money and hassle researching and testing tools you don’t even know if you can use.”

Me: “Oh yeah? What’s that exactly?”

Stranger: “The folks over at DIYA have an affordable way to get ongoing assistance for all your online marketing needs. They created a ‘Do-It-Yourself’ platform full of information about tools, tips and resources. They can help you find your way when you get lost.”

Me: “Another offer that sounds too good to be true. What’s the catch.?

Stranger: “There is no catch. DIYA is a growing business that knows what it feels like to walk this road alone. They want to break the cycle, and they decided the best way to do that was to build a Toolkit showcasing all the trusted services they use and love.”

I looked at him, still full of doubt.

Me: “If they are so good, what else do they offer?”

Stranger: “They have a Community right on the site that allows you to talk directly to the DIYA Team for assistance. Not only that, you can set up your own groups, network with other members and advertise your business,  all while connecting with other business owners.”

Me: “Yeah, and how much is all that going to cost me?”

He dug into his pocket and pulled out his wallet.

Stranger: “Well, you see this? Time is money, my friend. How much money have you wasted not knowing what to do? They are worth every penny if you ask me.”

I thought about it.

Me: “And all the time and money I save through them, I can put back into my own company and online marketing to make it even more successful.”

Stranger: “Now you are getting it. To sweeten the deal, DIYA has a 7-Day Free Trial just to test the waters. They don’t even ask for a credit card. They like that transparent approach.”

I sat back for a minute. What did I have to lose? Why not just see for myself?

Stranger: “It’s almost dawn, I best be on my way. There is more work for me to do tonight. When you become a member, and you will… Look for me.”

Me: “But how will I know it’s you?”

He turned around slowly.

Stranger: “They call me The Assistant.”

And just like that, he was gone. As the sun rose, I knew what I had to do.
