My name is Simon and this is my website.
This should be about me, and my business.
But, it’s not, it’s about YOU, and YOUR business.
You see, you probably don’t really care about me, and who I am, you’ve not come here to find out about me.
You’ve come here because:
Your business isn’t doing as well as you’d like.
And you’re wondering if a 20-year veteran of the Internet like me might be able to help you sell more stuff and make more money.
* Maybe you’ve not even started your business yet, and need some help figuring out what you should really be doing?
* Or maybe you’ve only just started, and are feeling somewhat overwhelmed by all the stuff you could be doing, and need help in making the right decisions?
* Or maybe you’ve been in business a while, and you’ve got stuck, and need a bit of a shove to unstuckify you?
* Or maybe you just want to be more successful?
But, I might be able to help you.
I’ve been in all of those situations.
And, I’ve helped people in all of those situations.
So yes, I might be able to help you solve problems with your business, and with yourself, and how your thoughts and decisions affect your business.
But before I tell you how I’ll do that, you do need to know how awesome I am, it is my website after all…
I’m an Entrepreneur, Online Business Consultant & Coach.
I live in Christchurch, near Bournemouth, on the South Coast of the United Kingdom.
I live 5 minutes from the beach. It’s nice.
As a teenager I always had a fascination with computers, engineering, making things and selling things.
I have a Masters from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne.
My degree was the Master of Engineering in Microelectronics and Software Engineering.
I graduated with a First Class Honours.
Yes, that’s a very long degree title.
It took a long time, it was very hard.
And I got a First in it.
The degree was basically about how to design computers, and how to program them.
Pretty techy, no? I’m a bit of a geek.
But just studying for a very hard degree wasn’t enough for me.
I was also learning about the Internet outside the degree.
About the Internet, how it works, and how it was fast becoming a place for businesses.
And, I wanted to put that extra-curricular to work, so I got a job in the web design industry.
I was building commercial websites, whilst I was studying full time, in the mid-90s.
I’ve been working on the Internet for over 20 years.
Since before some web designers you’ll meet were even born.
As you can maybe tell, I don’t do things the normal way.
I do them my way.
I don’t follow; I lead.
But, I’m not perfect…
After graduating I was hired by a big corporate.
I made a mistake working for a big corporation as a software engineer straight after graduating.
It wasn’t fulfilling me enough, a big part of me was missing, I wasn’t reaching my full potential.
It wasn’t creative enough, it didn’t make me use all of my brain.
In 2000, I started working for a top London web agency.
They are now the largest digital agency in the UK.
I hopped a ride on the dot.com wave. Complete with indoor lawns, office beer, and a high salary.
But, that still wasn’t enough for me. I still hadn’t found what I was looking for. (Sing it!)
I became a consultant.
I got a gig managing the hosting build of a big newspaper website.
At the time it was the biggest newspaper website in the UK.
I still wasn’t happy.
I wanted even more, so at the same time as consulting…
I started a business.
Well, actually, two businesses.
But I learnt a lot about focusing on one’s expertise!
One didn’t fail.
It succeeded. So I did it full time.
And, it’s still going.
I still get an income from that business 15 years later.
Since then I’ve built other businesses as well.
Some have failed.
Failure is a big part of success. It’s very often not a bad thing at all.
And I’ve sold some businesses. They count as successes.
I’m always starting new businesses.
As I write this, I’m about a month into yet another new venture.
I never stop doing what I do.
I never will.
I’ve always been fascinated by how people work.
About why they do things.
About how they do things.
How they think.
And how they can change that thinking.
I combine Online Business with Psychology.
Should you become a client of mine, I will give you both Internet marketing knowledge and sound business advice.
I’ll tell you if you should be doing SEO, PPC, Social Media, Content Marketing, Email Marketing, or something else.
I will create a Marketing Plan perfect for your business.
That is what will make the difference to get new customers into your business.
I can help you implement that Marketing Plan and turn it into Sales.
And show you how to maximise profits from those sales.
I can work with your team to implement your marketing.
Or, I you can use my team to do it for you.
I will maximise converting your Marketing into Sales.
There’s more, this time it’s all about you.
You will get probed.
Analysed, picked apart.
Then we’ll put you back together again, bigger, better and more than before.
I’ll show you how you need to change how you think.
To make those changes I’ll coach you.
I’ll hold you to account.
I’ll make sure you can see yourself from a different perspective.
The resulting growth in your business may shock you.
But, that’s what you want, right?
So are you ready for it?
Does YOUR BUSINESS need some help?
And, do YOU need some help?
Well, I might be able to give you that help.
I might be able to solve the problems you’re facing.
I might help you grow your business, and achieve your goals.
If we’re a good fit.
Let’s find out.
Ask me to help you on social media, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Introduce yourself, tell me what you do, and why you’re awesome.
Help me get to know who you really are. What makes you tick.
Next, we need to speak, or maybe even meet.
Our conversation will be of huge value to you.
Right from the beginning I’ll be doing what I do.
Right from the start I’ll be giving you the good stuff.
So, how much should that cost?
Should I be giving you that for free?
I will show you exactly what direction to take.
I know I can help, I’ve done it before for many clients.
That very first call has been worth a LOT of money to them.
And has given them a lot of clarity.
But, here’s the thing.
I don’t work for free.
There’s no such thing as a free lunch.
If I reply to your enquiry I’ll tell you my consultation fee, how you will pay in advance, and we can make a date.
If we both think we can work together, you will hire me!
So, you’ve made it this far, you’re nearly at the bottom of this story.
This is where I call you to action. Tell you what to do next.
It’s your turn.
Simply answer this question:
Do you have a problem with your business?
Or, maybe this question:
Are YOU the problem in your business?
If you answered “Yes” to either of those questions (I bet it’s actually both), get in touch on social media, or by email and let me know.
If not, thank you for reading and I wish you luck with everything you do.
PS: Seriously, if you’ve made it this far, we probably need to talk, soon.
And tell me what you want, what you really really want. (Sing it now!)
