Proof that Gavin Preston can help you to double your business…

As the Gavin Preston team sat down for their months review, they had good news to share with Jane and George…

“You’ve done it! 

I’ve just finished the numbers and I’m delighted to tell you your business has not only grown, it’s doubled since we started to work together. 

AND it’s only taken you 11 months!”

You should have seen the look on their faces (and mine to be honest).

The sheer delight and sense of pride was palpable!

Yet, it all started less than a year before, when an overworked and frankly demoralised couple called me to ask for help. 

Jane and George had taken over a business his mother had set up 20 years previously and in the two years they’d been running it, they’d hit absolute rock bottom. 

The poor things were working six days a week (starting at 3 am and often only finishing at gone 9 at night). 

The staff were demotivated and obstructive, with very low morale. 

Customers were continually complaining and causing trouble. 

The business was barely breaking even. In fact, it lost money almost every month.

George was particularly worried about Jane.

She had dark grey bags beneath her eyes, was utterly exhausted from months of struggle and disappointment. She was completely worn out and it was beginning to affect hear health.

George wasn’t much better, though together they just soldiered on.

However 

Together, they had a dream.

They knew deep in their hearts their business had potential. If only they could take the right actions to bring it out. 

They wanted to create employment opportunities for local people – as the business was in a close-knit rural area. 

They had great products and they wanted to exploit its WOW factor. 

They desperately wanted to give their children a great start in life and provide them with the best education possible. 

What’s more, they had total clarity on what they wanted to achieve.

So… 

Over the next few months we devised a thorough plan of how we could overhaul staff issues, streamline production and sales, boost customer satisfaction to create regular repeat business and most importantly significantly increase profits and personal income.

The result, in under 12 months, Jane and George have a happy and motivated team dedicated to the business. 

They regularly take time out and family holidays together.

The children are receiving the education their parents had dreamed they could have.

Jane and George are happy, excited, more relaxed and now highly rewarded.

AND… 

The business has doubled in turnover and profits. 

But that’s not all
We continued to work together. Jane and George have gone on to double their business not once, but twice again

AND, we’re currently working to do this for a FOURTH time 

Now, you may be wondering… 

What’s the secret?

Are Jane and George exceptional super-humans?

Well, frankly, no. They’re not! They’re just like you.

But they have done a few things differently to most people.

First they’ve used just a few of my strategies and then gone and taken fast, effective and meaningful action.

And to help you do the same I have set up two Double Your Business Business Training Workshops in Bristol and Cardiff for November & December.

To register on to one of our next two Double Your Business Events, in either Bristol or Cardiff in order to find out how this business growth can be achieved, please click the link to the business growth event that’s in the area best for you!

   Cardiff Business Event in December – Double Your Business
Bristol Business Event in November – Double Your Business  

P.S. Important: This proves you can double your business and repeat that success with just two things. The right mind-set and the right tools.

Best wishes

Six Reasons to Invest in Search Marketing or SEO Services…

Business owners are constantly working on business improvement, always looking to make their business better, more profitable, and more relevant.  With that in mind they should be looking to invest in search marketing or SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) services.

The information below should help you to understand the most important reasons to invest in Search Marketing or SEO services.

1. Customer Acquisition

 

Usually the most important factors in running any business is in the acquisition of new clients, customers, or users.

Website customer acquisition…

 

Your website is usually a fundamental piece of the puzzle, and without it, your efforts could be completely wasted.

Whether your website is just there to help your customers find your contact information, or if it is actually used to directly generate leads, appointments or sales, it is likely that you could be doing additional things in order to help you to reach more people and investing in search marketing or SEO services can help.

 

2. Search Marketing, SEO & Social Media Marketing

Social media marketing is, of course, a big area of interest at the moment for many businesses and website operators, and modern search marketing and seo combined more traditional seo services with social media marketing and this should be at the core of your business marketing strategy.

Search Marketing & SEO is forever changing…

Unfortunately, search marketing or SEO is something that is becoming more and more difficult all of the time, and most businesses and web operators do not dedicate enough time to the search marketing, seo or social media marketing and a good SEO Agency will do this for you as well as keeping up to date with all of the changes.

3. Link Building

Google and the other major search engine providers have extremely complex algorithms that help them to determine where various websites, landing pages, and videos should rank in their search results.

This information is proprietary, and so they simply can’t share exactly how each individual site is ranked.

One thing that has been known since the search industry was born, however, is that links are an extremely crucial measurement tool.

Links are valuable…

Having a lot of links pointing to your site is a signal to the search engines that your site has something valuable.  However, getting links to your website from other places on the internet is also quite complex.

 

but the wrong links could be harmful…

Backlinks can also potentially harm your site if those links come from the wrong places.

Quality over quantity…

 

Also, the number of backlinks is not generally viewed to be as important as the quality of a given backlink.  So while link building is important, it’s equally crucial to hire an SEO agency that understands how to do this properly.

4. Content Marketing

You may have heard this phrase before, and it’s likely to be heard many more times as currently within the world of search marketing and SEO content is King.

High Quality Content is Crucial to your success…

 

Having high-quality content on your website is crucial to its success. In most cases, this content consists of informative articles that actually help people in the industry in which you operate.

How, though, does having all of this content actually help your search ranking?

Having high quality articles helps you out in more ways than one.

  • First of all, high quality content makes it much more likely that your content will be viewed, read and shared by others, and this can help you to generate additional backlinks.
  • Secondly, quality content helps you ensure that visitors spend more time on your website, and this is also a very important signal to search engine providers that your site is worthy of a good ranking.

5. New Markets

Often businesses aren’t always covering all of the markets they could be for their products and services and a good search marketing company or SEO agency can help you to find new markets for your products and services via detailed keyword researching and good keyword marketing toward those new markets.

6. Consistent results that can last a long time

There are SEO tactics that can help a website to rank highly fairly immediately, however, many of these tactics will not last, and some will actually cause you to be penalised later on.

Just as is true in most other areas of life, the easy way is generally not the best way.  A search marketing expert or Good SEO agency will help you by using proven strategies that will help you earn traffic for years to come and these results can be far better and more reliable than alternative web marketing strategies such as Adwords.
