    From what I can tell, you are doing a lot of great marketing, but around 98 percent of leads to your website are leaving without taking any action on your site. I can show you how, through reverse IP lookup, we can identify the companies and individuals visiting your site. I can also provide you with the contact info – including names, emails and phone numbers – of these visitors, effectively doubling or tripling the number of leads that can be harvested from your existing web traffic.

    My team has over twelve years of experience driving results for our clients, and we want you to be a part of their long reputation for success. We’re based in Los Angeles, we’re Google partners, and we’ve received accolades from Inc Magazine and the LA Business Journal.

    Is there a time this week that works best to set up a call?

    Dear Mark Bonamo,

    We, the Parents of Parents Educating Parents are appalled at the article titled, “Pro-Charter school groups urge Mayor Baraka to work with them.” We would like for you to know the facts about our Honorable Mayor Ras J. Baraka and not the propaganda put forth in the aforementioned article written by Josh Frank. Our Mayor does work with the 7 organizations listed in the article as he is a Mayor who consistently display and state, “He is the Mayor for all children.” He consistently have a team of community leaders both male and female entering into Traditional Common Public Schools and Uncommon Charter Schools with a legislated Public Charter attached top receive Public tax dollars. We also would like you to know, the organizations mentioned in the letter your reporter displayed in his article are organizations that are backed by Hedge funds, the big banking industry, investors, the 1% wealthy population, and major corporations who receive a profit off of poverty stricken disenfranchised children in urban areas in New Jersey.

    Those seven organizations mentioned are not grassroots community organizations with boots on the ground in the urban areas which they propose to represent. However, across the nation there are major organizations that are in support of the moratorium on Charter School expansion. In addition, there are major New Jersey grassroots organizations in support of the moratorium such as NAACP, CASA,NJ BATTS, Parent Power Movement, Save Our Schools NJ, PULSE, NJ J4J Chapter, POP, NJ Communities United, Parents Educating Parents, NTU, ALI and many more.

    Lastly, we have an online petition in support of the moratorium and boots on the ground in the community in all five wards in Newark in support of the Mayor’s letter to Commissioner and support of the bill S2887/A4351.

    Thank you for your immediate response to this matter.
