Hi, I am Lynne Thomas and I am, among other things a business coach. I say among other things because I am also an online marketer, a re-seller, an affiliate marketer, a trainer and mentor as well as running workshops for new business owners who need help with building websites and getting their business found on the internet.
It is because I do all these other things that I know what problems people face when they are new to business and especially new to online business. In the real world you could just buy a shop, fill it with stock and put an open for business sign on your door and passers by could pop in and see what you have to offer. The online world is different. How do you get passers by on the internet? How do you get people to find your website and therefore your wonderful goods and services?
I often get asked for help with designing and building websites as people have gone down the “free” site route and found it doesn’t do what they want. Some have paid hundreds of pounds to get one built with a few pages and then found they have problems every time they try to update or amend anything.
I also get asked where to advertise on the internet to get customers to find you and how much you should expect to be paying for adverts. I have come to realise that lots of people are having the same problems and struggles that I had when I first started out in business and I wanted to help them.
I have been a trainer/tutor for many years (and still am) and so when I got started in business and began to find my way around things (with lots of help from others I might add) I wanted to give something back and began coaching others through posts and videos that I published on my website.
Things have grown a little since then though and I wanted to create a site that was specifically designed to help people who are starting out in business. I wanted to try and answer as many questions as I could for them and try to find the cheapest simplest way of doing things for them as possible so that they can get up and running without it costing them a fortune.
This is my brand new site but there are lots of posts on my other website www.lynne-thomas.com which you might find useful. I am going to aim to get them all transferred across at some point but you might not be able to wait.
I will aim to cover setting up a website, creating pages and posts, getting your posts out to hundreds of readers (for free) and getting your site indexed by google etc. I am also going to show you how to become an affiliate marketer (could be a little side line to your existing business), how to get paid for other people advertising on your site and how to become a re-seller.
Of course, this is going to take a little while to get together as I am so busy actually doing the work I have to fit my post writing around all this other activity.
I do, of course, offer a one to one coaching service on Skype for those who would like a more bespoke service or for those who prefer to work alongside someone rather than just reading instructions. I charge £30 for 30 minutes and you get to choose how often you speak to me as there is no minimum or maximum sessions.
I hope you gain lots of information and knowledge from my site. It might not all be me, I do embed useful and current YouTube videos into my posts as they are a great way to learn and other people are much better at video stuff than I am – we all have our skills as you will soon learn.
On that note I will also be giving you some great sites for outsourcing which don’t cost you a packet and recommending some free plugins that I have used and found helpful.
Please feel free to contact me as I would love some feedback and suggestions about how else I can help you on your business journey.
