    Great work by Paul to put that together. I wonder if it might be skewed a little though, not sure what others do but I use my Gmail as a generic/catchall address for signing up to things like Linkedin/forums etc. and use my business/website address for directly business related stuff.

    The reason is just so that I can very quickly filter things in Outlook/mobile by address, so that I immediately know what’s “look at now” and what’s “look at when you have time”. If it hits my business inbox then I know it’s likely to be a client communication, whereas if it’s my gmail then it could be spam/forum post/etc.

    Just wondering if that accounts for a lot of those gmail’s, but I also think for people in the business community their personal address tends to stay the same while their business email can change regularly. My 2c :-)

    That’s great work Paul, well done. Not easy to achieve in that amount of time, particularly if you’re in a competitive niche.

    If I can do a little trumpet blowing myself, at the end of November last year, our main keywords were out of the top 100. I decided I wanted them on page 1 by the end of 2015.

    They’re at around 15 now, and one just cracked the first page a couple of days ago before slipping off again.

    Still hoping we can get there – 2 months and 3 days to go! :-) Can’t wait for it to happen.

    Well done and keep up the great work :-)

    Internet leads are great, WOM leads are better. If you can’t close those it’s going to be VERY hard to close the cold ones ….

    I think the following gets forgotten though, by people who’ve been around an industry for a while and have lots of WOM leads; when you’re just starting out, there are no Mouths to express Words about you!

    So in the beginning you’ve got to get some traffic/leads from somewhere, and the internet is an awesome way to do that.

    Just couldn’t resist chipping in to what I also suspect is a little bit of a troll post :-)

    Hi Jon,

    You must be a good bloke with a name like that! :-)

    Depending on where you’re based I might know someone – I have a great bookbinder who makes my albums and USB presentation boxes, and he can do them in just about any dimensions. Can definitely do embossing etc. on the top as well.

    Let me know if you’re around Melbourne and I’ll send you some details.

    Cheers,
    Jon

    I’d reckon hitting the phones would be the very first step, in conjunction with a tightly targeted adwords campaign. Being a marketing trainer I’d assume you have all your marketing collateral ready to go :-)
