Are you a ‘Soul Trader’?
This about page is about You and I because I am not interested in working with just anyone;
I want to work with Soul Traders
and yes the spelling error was intentional: because lets face it, Sole Traders really do trade with their SOUL. You care about what you’re doing, it’s not JUST a way to make money, you have taken a risk to get out there and work for yourself – Well done!
Being a sole trader is not just a job, it’s a lifestyle, it’s exciting, and terrifying all at once.
You may be following a dream, using skills you have developed over time and feel connected to what you’re doing, BUT there is one problem;
You are every department of your company, the finance department, the research departments and the marketing department and it can be a struggle to balance it all and be affective. One of the areas that can feel confusing and overwhelming is your website, which is such a shame, because it can totally empower your business and connect you to new opportunities…if you know how.
You may think that its expensive to have a great online presence and necessary to hire someone to do it for you – I’m here to tell you it needn’t be! I see so many great sole traders out there, ready to provide a service to people that they would find valuable, but they just aren’t quite sure how to get the message out there in an affordable way.
So lets take back the web from the big businesses with big budgets and give it to the traders with Soul, who have passion to bring to the table.
Because I think that a website is so much more than just an online business card, it’s your shop front 24/7, a great way to open a 2 way dialogue with your prospects and there are massive amounts of Free and inexpensive tools to help you…as long as you know how. Let me know what you struggle with in your business so that I can answer those questions and help solve those problems here.
