Over the last few weeks I’ve been catching up with an old school friend. I use the term school friend loosely though, as we never really spent all that much time together when we were at school, however, through some mutual friends we have now managed to connect again, and it turns out that we have more in common than I ever realised.
So over the last few weeks we have been discussing all sorts of things, mostly business related (he owns his own business) and it turns out that a lot of the skills I have picked up through running my own website and doing the whole “internet marketing” thing, are coming in really handy for him to expand his business. Some I do on a regular basis and don’t even give a second thought to, are potentially thing can be doing on his business that could massively increase the number of sales he makes on a day to day basis.
As an example – one of the really simple things that we have been working on is increasing his presence within the search engines. Currently he pays for advertising for his business, which is a great way to go about it, but he is losing so much traffic organically to his competitors. I’ve given him a few ideas to ponder, and a couple of action items to follow and I am already starting to see the fruits of that labour. Plus, it’s really good to be helping someone who is not only really grateful for my help, but who is also doing the things we talk about.
We’ve also been tossing around ideas regarding things like my Amazon FBA experiment, and while neither of us is in too deep in that space just yet, it’s exciting to finally find someone who shares many of the same passions that I do, and who doesn’t live on the other side of the world.
How Can I Help You?
The whole thing has given me a bit of a buzz, and i’m really enjoying taking the time to help people. So I thought I would throw the question out there to anyone reading, whether you are a regular subscriber of my site, a first time visitor or a blogger. If you have a question you think I might be able to answer, or if you are a blogger and would like a page promoted on your website – please just let me know in the comments, or shoot me an email here.
