Posted on: November 24th, 2014 by Chris M No Comments
Almost on a daily basis I'll engage with someone who wants assistance with their website and most of the time it's about getting more visitors to their site from Google. I normally start telling them about search engine optimisation and they interupt and tell me they've Googled SEO and know it's about title tags, meta descriptions and a few other things. The problem here is that when you Google about SEO you're readi...

SUCCESS THROUGH SOLVING A PROBLEM


Posted on: November 23rd, 2014 by Chris M No Comments
They say that one of the best ways to launch a company is through solving a problem and if you think about it, that's fairly logical. However, coming up with a problem to solve is difficult, one must be very perceptive and present in life, always taking note of things - I often say that keeping a notebook or application handy is a good way of doing this. Or, to find the headspace to step back from life and a...

I was chatting to a friend the other day who is launching a new product in the not too distant future and he was asking me whether I knew some ways to get the product seeded into the right influencers hands. He has someone to actually handle this task for him so time isn't a big concern, he's one of those guys who wants quality over quantity, which I greatly appreciate. His specific request was to be able to engage w...

KEEP YOUR FINANCIALS SAFE ONLINE


Posted on: November 13th, 2014 by Chris M No Comments
As you all know, I was commissioned by Momentum to blog about their new financial wellness solutions and in doing so I've actually learnt a lot. It's difficult being commissioned because people always assume that you're punting a product regardless of how good it is.
