He does not use online marketing companies. He is independent.Let’s look at one example of a problem that can come up in using a searchengine to find a chess tutor in the Salt Lake Valley. This is a national tutoring-marketing company found on the first page of a Google search on the phrase “chess lessons in Utah” (not using quotes), and the details are surprising, if not shocking.Each of the fifteen tutors listed on that page have generous space, fullparagraph space, for describing their tutoring qualifications, experience,and charges. The listed lesson charges range from $27.50 to $62.50.Yet with all those many sentences about what those instructors teach,not once is the word “chess” found inside a paragraph. Not once!We read how those tutors teach writing, typing, math, science, English,music, and study skills. But “chess lessons” is mentioned only in eachtitle space, obviously inserted by the national marketing company. Ifone of those tutors were specializing in chess lessons, surely we wouldfind the word “chess” somewhere in one of those fifteen paragraphs.On the other hand, Jonathan Whitcomb specializes in chess tutoring.He’s a chess book author and writes and publishes his own marketingpages online. He is able to charge only $25 per lesson because he doesnot pay any national tutoring-marketing company.Better still, you pay nothing for the first session, which is a getting-acquainted meeting.
