if, however you want to deprive the community of all that you have contributed
My posts are here for good. For goodness sake, I’m on my way out of the community. Putting words in people’s mouths was one of my biggest complaints.
It’s my account I’m asking to close. There’s no need to maintain unnecessary personal data like my email address.
I go by my full name while part of a community but I prefer to anonymise posts when I leave and I’m no longer able to manage my online reputation.
I’d like to close my account if that will automate this process.November 19, 2015 at 10:03 am #1191045::
Thank you John. I’ll digest this more later. Have a good evening.November 19, 2015 at 7:29 am #1191074::
Not me buddy. I’d love to be on Instagram but it would be blooming hard to get nice pics for my industry. Very abstract and no one needs to see me in my beach shorts. Really wish I was in a niche in photography sometimes. We struggle to get nice pics for the blog as well with topics like ‘single or double optins for your email list’. Yawn, yawn. Being in the restaurant industry would be nice as well. I’d love putting out pics of the fodder. Hope it doesn’t become invasive – hard balance for these site to manage.

Not used a database but welcome to FS forums Cloudstorming!November 19, 2015 at 1:55 am #1191057::
This might be useful feedback Peter. I tried to find out whether it cost and it wasn’t obvious. I now see ‘Join our Community’ is the link. But I thought these buttons meant joining the forum due to the word community. I was looking in the Directory, right at the top, for something like “List Yourself”. It might be one person’s idiosyncratic thoughts and navigation. But just a thought in terms of CTA.November 19, 2015 at 1:45 am #1191043::
Thanks Byron. Competition – there are plenty of providers but they’re not always competitive on SEO. Depends on the city. London was hugely competitive. Sydney is moderate, though we’re already on page 2 without mentioning Sydney. Brisie, well, even general directory sites often feature in the results.November 19, 2015 at 1:28 am #1191055::
Yeah very helpful thanks Peter. Is the directory listing a paid listing?November 18, 2015 at 8:35 pm #1191047::
Hi Jen. Right section! Welcome!
I used to do proofreading for academic books and foreign student essays. Hope you can find some current proofreaders. I have 8 contacts on LinkedIn in your industry but not sure how to search here by industry. So I’ve asked admin how to search the site membership by industry. You might want to watch this thread: http://j.mp/1X8iMQp in case I’ve overlooked a way to do it. Click ‘Watch Thread’, top right of any thread.
Have a browse around the forums, ask a question, or add your thoughts to someone else’s thread!

Interesting thoughts John. Remember the question was, “Which ones do you agree with”?November 18, 2015 at 10:53 am #1191036::
Like it I can’t remember which company it is – some tech/online – but they let all their staff choose their own title. Sales Jedi is one I heard somewhere. Co-Founder sounds boring now!November 18, 2015 at 10:49 am #1191041::
Thanks John. Catchment area is the cities themselves or people who are searching on these cities from nearby conurbations. Always enjoyed top position in the search engines on one city but #3 to 5 on the second city in both the UK (London, high competition) and here (Brisbane, moderate) after letting the results settle after the initial boost, logged out of Google, and on various connections.
Our prospects are deliberators, rather than impulse, and check out multiple suppliers. So not major deal for us but as I’m restructuring, it’s an opportunity to tune it more finely.
Searches would typically be “hypnotherapy training Sydney” and “Sydney hypnotherapy training”. We’re already on page 2 there even though we don’t mention it. Low search volume and we don’t get overly excited about analytics and keyword tools because data is so scant but customer who could (really) remember their searches often said they used these. UK business was at capacity so we got it spot on.
Here, we’re doing well but a bit less so. Hypnotherapy is a lot less popular here, many providers are distance learning (ours physical), and we’ve been selling to a population a quarter of the size and with Aussie low density population demographics and difficulty travelling.
Just going to tweak that second city.November 18, 2015 at 10:17 am #1191026::
Hi Stephanie. Both of my accountants saw discussing legal structure as part of their job.
Maybe you could have some free initial consultations with prospective new accountants who you might like to do business with. Some will help with this and certainly if you visit a few, you’ll get a feel for them, their ways of working, and pull together the advice into something meaningful.
I don’t think it’s normally the role of a business coach. Some could definitely help but coaching is not normally about advising (and their insurers might not be happy with that either). In fact, coaching is more questioning and catalytic, helping people to help themselves. Yet what you seem to need right now is advice and learning.
Also, the ATO provide some good web pages on this kind of thing as well such as this: http://j.mp/1PNDBQDNovember 18, 2015 at 10:08 am #1191034November 18, 2015 at 9:00 am #1191007
