Food Truck

This opportunity was found on GoFundMe.com and is a family-owned food truck that sells lobster dishes. They’ve managed to raise almost all the money they set out to raise, but it has taken 40 months.

One way that a lot of business owners earn money is through t-shirt sales. You can sell the t-shirts for whatever you want with proceeds going to your fundraising project or your business. For example, if you wanted to start a restaurant that only sells soup, you could sell t-shirts that say Just Soup with a picture of yummy soup, and this can be the reward people get for investing.

Finding investment for your business via crowdfunding is a legitimate way to get funding. In some cases, you will not have to pay back the money. In others, you’ve given away equity or owe the backers something in return, such as a gift or content.

About Me

I've been designing and marketing websites and businesses for over 24 years and prior to this I worked in sales, marketing and big business for almost 18 years... which makes me not only old, but also highly experienced at this marketing and Internet stuff.  I've won lots of awards and helped thousands of people, and this website is a testament to the information I share freely to help others succeed online.

When I'm not designing websites, doing this online marketing stuff or writing. I love nothing more than getting out on a weekend and scuba diving. I'm a qualified rescue diver and love getting wet in the waters around Perth and Rottenest Island. I also cycle, which must be a sight as I'm not the thinnest of people (lol)... and a paddle on a kayak or a swim helps makes most weeks, perfect. At home I have a marine reef tank, which I just love and on top of that I've an awesome dog, called Ziggy.

What Can I Do For You?

I can work with you to design a website and marketing strategy that actually works. You'll get a website that looks fantastic but also attracts and engages your potential customers, helping generate leads, sales and profits.

What Will It Cost ?

A discussion about your requirements is completely free of charge.

Solutions are tailored to meet your budget and success goals as much as possible, and websites have been delivered costing just a few hundreds dollars a month or for one of payments of a few thousand... it all comes down to our discussions, if you want a website that generates millions of dollars in sales your budget will obviously be bigger, if you're a small business then your goals and costs will be more realistic, at least to start with.
