Follow your passion and heart. Success will follow.

I’m Greg Goodman
dad • artist •
husband • entrepreneur

I can trace the journey of my adult life into three distinct eras. All of them are chronicled on this website.

Photographic Storyteller

For a decade, my wife and I bounced between traveling, living abroad, moving home, working, saving, and doing it all again.

Along the way, I shared photos and stories from our adventures — simply because it made me and other people happy.

That approach to life attracted success – culminating in a National Geographic TV show about my life as a travel blogger.

Business Owner

As a kid sitting at grandpa’s old wooden desk, I dreamed of being a “businessman.” Today, I run a one-man marketing and web design agency that helps small business owners SOAR.

Goodman Creatives allows Carrie and me to own a home, take care of our kids, and live the life of our dreams. And, it keeps me chained to a desk.

Paradigm Shifter

Today, I’m combining these worlds to create a new reality. A reality that’s free of financial shackles. A place where we can all follow our hearts and find success.

I also dedicate myself to radical honesty on social media, giving voice to the internal struggles we all face — but seldom talk of.

A Journey Awaits

Adventures of a GoodMan is the graphic novel of my life and the next chapter is still being written.


Here are 4 good places to start your journey.

Greg Goodman - Photographic Storytelling - a Journey Awaits     

Therapists are the nicest people! ⁣

You give and you give – both during therapy sessions and in life in general.⁣

That’s why it’s no surprise that so many therapist websites provide a resources page full of links to organizations, self-help books, and more. ⁣

The problem is, this display of generosity is actually hurting your ability to turn your site’s visitor into a paying patient.⁣

𝙀𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙮𝙤𝙣𝙚 𝙣𝙚𝙚𝙙𝙨 𝙖 𝙬𝙚𝙗𝙨𝙞𝙩𝙚 …⁣

A place away from the dings and distractions of social media.⁣

Somewhere that inspires people to know, like, and trust you.⁣

Whatever marketing you do, all roads should point back to WWW.⁣

Perhaps I’m biased.⁣

After all, I’ve been designing websites for 25 years.⁣

And, I believe that a website is THE KEY to standing out in a busy online crowd.⁣

A website is the single most important piece of your marketing puzzle.⁣

𝙔𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙬𝙚𝙗𝙨𝙞𝙩𝙚 𝙙𝙤𝙚𝙨𝙣’𝙩 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙗𝙚 𝙗𝙞𝙜.⁣

In fact, many successful websites are only one page long.⁣

You can build it on whatever platform works for you (WordPress, Squarespace, Wix … whatever).⁣

You can hire someone 🙋‍♂️ or, you can DIY.⁣

You can update it regularly … or, you can set it and forget it.⁣

There’s no “right way” to make a website.⁣

Whatever path you take, make sure your website does these 3 key things:⁣

1️⃣ Make a personal connection⁣
2️⃣ Solve a problem⁣
3️⃣ Give people plenty of ways to reach out, stay in touch, or enter your funnel⁣

𝙔𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙬𝙚𝙗𝙨𝙞𝙩𝙚 𝙨𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙗𝙚 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙢, 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙮𝙤𝙪⁣

Before getting excited about look and feel, you need to understand who you most want to serve.⁣

In the past 25 years, I’ve found that the most successful websites are centered around your business’s specific dream client avatar. ⁣

Start by asking yourself:⁣
✅ What is your niche?⁣
✅ Who is your dream client?⁣
✅ What keeps them up at night?⁣
✅ How would their life be different without that pain point?⁣
✅ How are you the only solution?⁣

THAT is how you should approach your website.⁣

How much money do you need to finance the life of your dreams?⁣

Do you know the lifetime value of a new client or sale?⁣

What about a clear breakdown of your monthly expenses?⁣

These are just some of the questions I ask business owners when they book a Q&A call with me.⁣

In case you don't know, I run Goodman Creatives — a marketing, web design, and personal branding agency with one employee (me!)⁣

Usually, the response is, "I have no idea!"⁣

HOW TO CREATE⁣
A MARKETING BUDGET⁣
........................⁣

Until you have clarity on your lifestyle numbers, it's impossible to set a marketing budget.⁣

To start, open up a spreadsheet and your credit card statements and figure out how much it costs just to be you. ⁣

Here are 15 key areas to focus on ... ⁣

Housing - rent, mortgage, upkeep, housekeepers ... ⁣

Utilities - internet, phone, gas, electric ... ⁣

Insurances of all types - home, car, medical, business ... ⁣

Transportation or car expenses - loan payments, registration, gas, bus fare ... ⁣

Food - because organic ain't cheap ⁣

Emergency funds - for when life gets a little kooky ⁣

Entertainment and travel - keeping sane at home and getting out there ⁣

Gifts - if you like giving them, you gotta pay for them! ⁣

Clothes and accessories - how much does it cost to keep you styling? ⁣

Personal development - hiring coaches, gym memberships, and taking care of YOU ⁣

App subscriptions and recurring memberships - Netflix, Spotify, everything on your phone ... ⁣

Taxes - if you are a freelancer or online business owner, make sure to save for Uncle Sam ⁣

Retirement - if you're not getting a 401k, you can always do IRAs or other investments to work up that nest egg ⁣

General Savings - kids college funds, big home improvements, that shiny thing you really want ... ⁣

Business expenses - what people, services, marketing, etc do you pay for each month⁣

5 Common Marketing Mistakes and how to fix them⁣

Marketing comes in all shapes and sizes. ⁣

So do common marketing mistakes! ⁣
» Paid ads⁣
» Organic FB marketing⁣
» Websites⁣
» Google⁣
» SEO⁣
» Personal branding⁣
» Funnels⁣
...... the list goes on. ⁣

Most business owners understand that marketing is an essential part of growing their business. ⁣

However, those same business owners often express frustration at previous marketing failures.A⁣

s the owner of a digital marketing agency, I've heard so many stories about failed marketing.⁣

From those, I came up with a list of 5 must-know tips for successfully promoting your business.⁣

1. Don't invest in marketing until you have clarity on your dream client and niche ⁣

2. Don't spend your whole marketing budget on a website -- leave enough for paid ads⁣

3. Don't try to manage Google Ads and SEO yourself - let an expert get the results you need⁣

4. Don't talk about yourself until your dream client knows you understand THEM⁣

5. Don't choose more marketing channels than you can keep up with⁣

Here’s mine — or at least, today’s version. ⁣

It’s an eternal work in progress. ⁣

I help online business owners get more sales without being salesy by creating an authentic, ethical, kickass personal brand that stands out in a busy online crowd. ⁣

I do this through 1-1 coaching, traditional web design and marketing (at my digital agency), and with an affiliate/network marketing-based online learning platform/community full conscious entrepreneurs who are dedicated to personal growth as a path to making the world a better place.⁣

I get really excited about a lot of things.⁣

Most recently, I was regaling my mom with all the reasons why I LOVE my new online educational platform.⁣

In addition to leveling-up my business world, it's helped me go SO deep internally. ⁣

I've only been a part of it for the past few months -- and it's the best thing I've done for my personal growth since spending a month in the Amazon doing plant medicine in 2014.⁣

It's been epic, to say the least.⁣

And, true to form, my mom replied with a simple, yet incredibly powerful bit of advice ...⁣

In the middle of all the excitement, just remember to breathe.⁣

So wise, mom. So wise!⁣

Thank you thank you thank you mom, for being you!⁣

Love you!⁣

Waiting foreeeeeever for pages to load?⁣

And …⁣

Feeling awestruck every time you typed in www.⁣

WELCOME⁣
YOU’VE GOT MAIL!⁣

The year was 1996.⁣

I was a junior in high school.⁣

Computers were my thing, so I took a coding class as an elective.⁣

That’s where I fell in love with HTML (Hypertext Markup Language).⁣

I did my coding by hand in Notepad.⁣

Netscape was my browser.⁣

AOL was my ISP.⁣

I was hooked for life.⁣

Thanks, June Idzal! 🙏⁣

My final project was a James Bond website.⁣

It’s still online today - universalexports.net⁣

In the years since I’ve created dozens of websites for fun and for pay.⁣

Most are long gone.⁣

Some never even saw the light of day.⁣

However, there are two extra-special websites that continuously fuel my personal and professional growth.⁣

1. AdventuresofaGoodMan.com — My Photographic Storytelling travel blog - which is how I express myself creatively. ⁣

2. GoodmanCreatives.com — my marketing, web design, branding, and coaching agency⁣

Along with Universal Exports, running these sites has helped me keep up with the latest trends in web design and marketing for 25 years.⁣

So there you have it.⁣

That’s my resume.⁣

Ask me anything.
...

Sometimes people don’t have the time to sift through loads of information. ⁣

That lengthy blog post cuts into their time they have with family. ⁣

So in the end, traditional content marketing can become static.⁣

To prevent that from happening, here are a few ways you can integrate interactive marketing into your approach.⁣

» Quizzes⁣

» Interactive Data⁣

» Contests⁣

» Being active on social media⁣

» Email marketing⁣

» Chatbots or live chat⁣

Why Should I Pay More for Web Hosting?⁣

It’s a good question — and one we get a lot here at Goodman Creatives. ⁣

The short answer is that cheap web hosting can slow down your website, leave you vulnerable to hackers and malware, and potentially drive customers away. ⁣

Think of it this way,⁣

If you just bought a Ferrari, would you put sand in the gas tank?!⁣

On one hand, you don’t want to blindly go out and spend big bucks on top-of-the-line options that you’ll never use or understand. ⁣

On the other hand, having this technology in place can make a big difference behind the scenes … even if you never know it’s there. ⁣

Google searches for Online Therapy, Teletherapy, Virtual Therapy, and Video Therapy have been on the rise since the early days of COVID-19.⁣

Part of the reason for this uptick in intakes is the fact that you can promote online therapy services to your entire state, not just your local geographical area. ⁣

Here's what Google had to say:⁣

"Online Therapy“ — gets between 10k – 100k searches each month.⁣

If you’re using Google Ads, you will pay between $7 – $18 to get your result on Page 1.⁣

There is high competition for this keyword.⁣

Teletherapy — gets between 10k – 100k searches each month.⁣

If you’re using Google Ads, you will pay between $2 – $11 to get your result on Page 1.⁣

There is medium competition for this keyword.⁣

Video Therapy — gets between 1k – 10k searches each month.⁣

If you’re using Google Ads, you will pay between $4 – $11 to get your result on Page 1.⁣

There is medium competition for this keyword.⁣

Virtual Therapy — gets between 1k – 10k searches each month.⁣

When creating copy for your dream therapy client, it’s essential to avoid big words, technical jargon, and “me statements.”⁣

I get it – this style of writing is what’s familiar to you. ⁣

Long sentences detailing the psychopathology of an issue are what your professors wanted in your thesis.⁣

But this isn’t grad school – and it’s not what your dream therapy client is looking for.⁣

When your dream client visits your website, they are in pain. ⁣

They want to know that you understand them. ⁣

That you can relate to what they are going through. ⁣

When they first arrive, they don’t want to hear about you.⁣

The key to a successful therapist website is taking yourself almost completely out of it.⁣
