MY JOURNEY SO FAR...

One of my first businesses was in the corporate wellness space, provide massage and wellness solution to busy corporates. My vision was to provide a healthier and happier environment in these corporate shoeboxes. We quickly grew to 90 + staff members nationally. This business ran purely on online lead generation, branding and enquiries, attracting the likes of Virgin, Coca Cola Amatil and Toshiba. Not long after, I sold this business to move onto my next venture.

It was now mid 2000’s where I saw the need for experts in the health industry to communicate more effectively to consumers. This when Youtube had just started up. I knew entertainment and social interaction would shift digital (look how we’re communicating now). It was at that moment I created Australia’s largest PT video directory, Meet Your Personal Trainer. Until today, it’s still a profitable and scalable model and still ranks position 1 for over 250 Google search terms around fitness. This was my first subscription business.

I still own that business today and it’s still running strong. However, the next and most recent market shift I saw was only 3 years go, ‘the rise and fall of the online marketing agency model’. Today with so much access to content, information and tools, I believe what business owners need is strategy and education! What we’re traditionally use to paying for can now be easily completed with today’s gen Y market… However, the distinguishing factor between the online success of business.. you guessed it,  it’s strategy. Strategy is the difference between social media and a brand that talks to a community.

Precision strategy will give guaranteed results. In todays market, if you’re not in it for the long game, you wont win. Consumers are smarter, access is readily available and most importantly, people can smell bull**** from a mile away. Be authentic, stick to the strategy and believe in the journey, you’’ realize a thing or too.
