Hang On, What About You? Can You Fix My Problem?
OK this page is meant to be about me, that is one of my problems you see. I am always wanting to help people.
One of my passions is to help business owners who want to turbo boost their online presence. I love helping people to realise their dreams by increasing the profitability of their online business or build the elusive passive income that people dream about.
Through my sort after consultancy service I help entrepreneurs and businesses large and small to build highly effective sales funnels using multiple online channels.
So, you have read this far, and I am sure you are eager to know more about me!
Well it all started in a pub… Not drinking but working full time and very long hours. I know what hard work is and I appreciate how many hours you have put into your business. The greatest skill I gained from all those hours in the pub game was that I learnt to listen, and to deal with many different personalities.
After four years in the pub game I went off to study Geography at Bournemouth University where I spent four wonderful years living, studying and working by the beach.
So, what on earth has studying Geography got to do with solving my marketing problem I hear you ask? And you would be right to ask as well.
A large part of my degree was learning about and working on Geographical Information (GIS) projects.
From University I went on to work with Welsh Water in 2003 mapping their pipelines and pushing them onto the web, this is where I learnt to develop websites which I continued with a new role at Cardiff Council.
By 2007 I had moved to the University of Glamorgan maintaining the website in the marketing team. This morphed from website maintenance to running a few digital marketing campaigns and on to running most of the digital marketing for the university which became the University of South Wales.
I founded Forte Web Solutions whilst still at the University in 2012 with a colleague as we were being asked by a number of people if we could create websites for them.
By 2016 the business had grown enough for me to leave the university and concentrate full time with Forte Web Solutions.
And here we are, I rebranded Forte Web Solutions to Forte Digital Marketing in 2019 simply because of the direction that the market took.
I am still producing websites although that is mainly done through 247 Websites which I run with my colleague John Lomax who is an excellent developer.
Most businesses today want the whole package, someone who can plan and / or build their marketing funnels from start to finish.
