Helping Other Businesses Something I haven’t been able to share until now is that recently, a company approached me about distributing one of our roof coating products.

Where Does The Time Go? Having spent so much time working on building the new business, there’s been none left over to devote to the blog, so my posts have been getting fewer and fewer. Asbestoseal.com is now taking around 75% of my working time, which in addition to my role in buildingsurveys.com leaves me about 50% short on hours […]

Marketing A Business There’s more to marketing a business that simply having a web site and if you’re serious about the business, then it’s a certain fact that the marketing is going to cost money. A lot of money. When, along with my two business partners, I started Asbestoseal in 2013, I knew that I could get the […]
Transition Complete It was January 2000 when I registered my own name as a .com and even back then, the non-hyphenated name had already been taken and was in fact being used by a singer/songwriter of the same name, so I had no complaints and didn’t actually have anything online here until a year later.

Developer Disaster I don’t have time to develop my own sites these days so a few weeks ago embarked on a process to find somebody who could redo a site for me that I felt was a bit dated and rather conservative. As it’s an important site for me, I wanted something that would stand out from […]
End User Domain Sale How do you sell a domain name to an end user? It’s a question pondered by many and one that’s often asked on domain forums as well as being one of the most frequently asked questions of myself.

In Support Of The 7 Figure Click If the conclusion to a story was simply the fact that a deal is done, it would be just another deal. Nothing special about that, people do deals all of the time and they start companies all of the time. So what? The reason I published my 7 figure click story was because over many years, […]
In search of the 7 Figure Click – Part 2 A few years ago, I built a niche web site on a newly registered domain, AsbestosRoofCleaning.co.uk. As you might imagine, this three-word domain was available to register at the normal price. I didn’t have to go to the aftermarket. The idea behind the web site was to provide information about cleaning asbestos roofs as you [...
