Marketing your Business Today

How did we manage before the internet?

When I first stuck my toe in to working for myself in April 1978, marketing was a whole different ball game.

As an Instrument engineer working in the servicing of scientific instruments in laboratories throughout the UK, our first form of advertising was putting our company label on every instrument we serviced.

List building came from postal addresses generated by magazine advertising and trade exhibitions, all followed up by postal mail shots.

This form of marketing was not only expensive, but extremely time consuming.

Half page advertisements were £500 and small exhibition stands were anything from £3,000.

All of these activities took you away from your core business.

I remember as a small business the whole family sitting around the dining room table stuffing envelopes for mail shots, a 10,000 run could cost you £2,000 postage.

When I hear of people in today’s online businesses complain about business costs, it makes me laugh.

When my servicing business was at it’s height, I had 5 service engineers on the payroll, they all had company cars and expenses accounts.

Can you imagine the running costs of 5 cars, fuel, service, tyres, insurance and not forgetting salaries and expenses.

Marketing Post Internet.

With the internet the world is your oyster.  Since the year 2,000 I have worked in 3 businesses with my daughter Karen.

Our first business was in executive chauffeur car hire, we serviced a millionaire post/zip code south of London.

This was the first instance for us where the internet was a huge aid, not only in promoting, but in the everyday running of our business.

Our website enabled the personal assistants of our clients to book cars, also entering all of their flight details as 90% of our work was to and from airports.

The flight information enabled us to offer an enhanced service by booking cars at the client’s destination airports, we did this by setting up an affiliate network of drivers world wide.  This was before UBER and smart phones.

We sold the car business as a going concern in 2005 with the intention of moving out of London for a peaceful retirement.

We invested the proceeds into a wedding & portrait photography business, which we carried on until 2013 when Karen started her family and I had a few years of bad health.

It was Karen who investigated internet marketing to give her the freedom to work from home to be there for her children.

Following my recovery in 2016, I joined her in looking after her back office, to start with doing her accounts then becoming more involved and going through her training bootcamp.

Internet Marketing Today.

Just this year, Karen has been masterminding with her on-line team members, they have been working on a core system that will serve all of the internet products they handle, whether in affiliate marketing, or bringing products from the traditional warm MLM market place to a much wider audience.

When I look at my previous comments above about marketing costs, how can folk complain about a system that costs just $54 per month? A system that has all the bells and whistles required to launch any product on-line. An affiliate system whereby you can earn by promoting it. It pays for itself and contributes to your Ad Campaigns.


It doesn’t matter if your business is bricks and mortar or on-line, whether you choose to market by using to social media or take the email marketing route, it’s a multifunctional system. Check it out.

The Power Lead System (PLS).

It gets better. The Power Lead System not only promotes your primary product, it also promotes itself at the same time every time you run an ad.  Even more bang for your buck.

For those of you just starting out, PLS has a basic FREE LEAD platform that upgrades through it’s one time $7 fee to the Lead Lightning system whereby, if you up-sell Lead Lightning you earn $6 for every sale. Check the FREE LEAD website here.
