Well obviously I learnt that eventually you need a website, because here I am writing the first post on our new website… (keep an eye out for many more posts and tons of highly actionable content to come)
So five years might seem like a long time to grow a business without a website especially in this day and age but before I go on I must outline that I’ve (and the company) have had a reasonable web presence. Just not in the form of a website, until now.
If you are starting out too, I actually highly recommend the path we have taken for the past five years too. Which is to do at least the following (I tried on many things but these work best):-
- Get presence on at least two social media platforms. Facebook & LinkedIn worked here.
- Run live events, network and build your connections like your life depends on it
- Build a world class future customers marketing pipeline with landing pages. I used Leadpages & Sendpepper to begin with; that would be a great start for you also.
- Comment, be active, message and engage people to find what is their problem. Then give them the next steps they need to take for FREE and ask them if they would like help making it happen.
- Work on yourself, everyday. Your brain is designed to keep you alive, not to have you thrive. You have to instruct your brain to grow your business over and over again. LEARN, UNLEARN & EXPLORE new possibilities. Then implement some more and build systems to save you time.
Actually the funny thing about the above advice is that if you follow it, implement it & refine it you can grow to beyond 7 figures a year without a website. So if you don’t feel very “techy” just start with Leadpages & Sendpepper for now and bring in some revenue to be able to pay a professional to do it for you.
So why are we switching to having a full time website now?
Because as we understand it branding is about explaining yourself without having to say the actual explanation out loud yourself. So we built a website to say most of it. We have tons to learn about what does and doesn’t work on this website yet, but we will be sure to keep you informed as we figure it out.
Thanks for tuning in for the very first blog post, I’d like to ask for your criticism now if I may?
We have consulted tons of expertise to build this site from scratch. We are aware of things to still be fixed but would value your input immensely, my business partner John Bellamy and myself believe in being learning leaders so you won’t offend us.
In advance thanks for your helpful criticism in the facebook comments box below 🙂
