Bubble in the desert

A blog I started whilst on a GE "Bubble" assignment in Nevada. I'm back in Cambridge (UK) now but still miss the desert and my friends out there.

Business Successes

I think the best thing about working for myself is having happy customers. Both Chris (from Chris's Bikes) and Steve the plumber (from Johnson Heating and Plumbing) were starting to notice the slowing economy in their businesses. Now they both have new websites that are easy to find with Google they are noticing the different. Chris has already sold about 20 bikes to people who found him on the web and Steve says that already 90% of his new calls are from the website - many more than are coming from Yellow Pages.

It is great to see that a simple, findable website makes such a different. It is all very well looking at the website statistics but what really matters is sales - and this side of it seems to be working exceptionally well, which I'm really pleased about!
