Hi and welcome to my blog,
Let me introduce myself and explain a bit more ‘about’ me : )
My name is Dave Hayes, I am a professional online business Marketing consultant, specialising in advertising & marketing for the Small Business Sector ( including the home business owner)
I am based on the coast of the UK, about an hour away from London and am married to my dream girl!! ( Ah Bless!!!)
My interests are wide and varied, I support both Arsenal and AFC Wimbledon ( this is a long story!!), enjoy all forms of personal development and sport, including cycling, swimming, dancing and classic old british comedy.
Advertising and Marketing
Why did I choose the online advertising & marketing sector? ~ Well, having discovered the internet, waaaaayyy back in 2000, I stumbled, as you do, across the very interesting and as I was later to discover, highly addictive world of online advertising and marketing for home business owners.
I was introduced to traffic exchanges, and this was in the days before ‘social media’ was even thought about.
So with this new world, I started to market an affiliate product, global domains international on a traffic exchange called traffic swarm. Both products are still going strong today.
Global Domains International, brought me both success and …Income. Needless to say I was hooked!
I stayed with GDI for about a year, not really knowing at that time what I was doing, see there was no handbook, guide or even coaching, to show you what to do back then. Not like there is now with
However, after a year, I decided that, having looked at and understood the GDI compensation plan, that for me to earn a really decent income online ( by decent, I mean at 4 to 5 figures per month) I would need another vehicle from the same industry, because to earn a 4 or 5 figure income… Then I would need about 6,000 plus people to do this.
It was at this point, I was advised by a leading name in internet marketing (I didn’t know that at the time, but found out who he was later!) that I should do one thing and one thing only
Build my own list!
It was explained to me that by building my own list, I would make way more money from affiliate marketing, than by promoting just an affiliate product furthermore i was also shown how to attract the clients / prospects to me ~ Now, not sure about you, but… I quite liked that idea.
“Having prospects come to me! ~ Wow, now smart is that?
The vehicle I chose was Global Virtual Opportunities, in fact you can find out more about GVO / Pure Leverage, by subscribing to the right of this post
So I started learning, how to attract the clients and prospects I wanted, because one thing I had learned, is that there are an awful lot of time wasters and tyre kickers out there… I didn’t want them! (neither will you!)
I put what I was shown into practice, stopped promoting my ‘affiliate’ opportunity and focused soley on helping others, by introducing them to the proven marketing solutions I had.
Such was the success I enjoyed that I was able to leave a secure day JOB and move full time into the field of professional online advertising and marketing, setting up my own marketing consultancy.
