I used to work in the Middle East as a sales manager, this involved traveling all around the Middle East to our various offices and working with the sales professionals to help them, close sales. Training them and helping them personally develop, whilst all the time pushing for targets to be achieved.

This was almost twenty years ago and although I’ve switched industries my love affair with sales, sales techniques and the methodology of sales has remained and there is not a day that goes by, that I do not draw on these skills. If you think about it, content marketing, social media marketing and even website design and conversion optimization are all methods of making sales, and although the technology might have change, many of the principles are exactly the same.

Let’s start this series on sales off by looking at some of the most common sales mistakes.

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.
