Is this the best butcher on the Gold Coast?

The team at Gold Coast Fresh Meat Centre have long been regarded as the best butcher on the Gold Coast – and it’s no wonder with their fresh meat and extensive range.

The family owned butcher shop – one of the largest on the Gold Coast – has been providing super fresh meat to Gold Coasters for the past 15 years.

With large growth they’ve moved their butcher shop (if you can call it that!) to Hutchinson St, Burleigh.  Well worth a try for great meat.

Check them out for great steaks, chops and more.

This is Jake - he isn't a butcher on the Gold Coast. But he does eat meat!

Bad Credit Loans From Zoom

A big welcome to our new clients at Zoom Car Loans – this team is fascinating in action as they’re commitment to quality is unsurpassed in anything I’ve seen in the finance industry.

The big plus is they’re in the same building as us here on the Gold Coast, so we’re essentially their in-house agency.

The teams are working closely together to build some terrific strategies to help people with bad credit obtain loans for cars mostly.  It can mean a lot for many people as they seek to gain independence and the ability to get mobile.

So welcome to the team and we look forward to assisting them in 2017.

One of the sites we work with is the sports nutrition site, Hammer Nutrition.

Hammer Nutrition sponsor a heap of athletes and events.

But we talk about only one on a very regular basis and in glowing terms. We publish her photos, race reports and more. We tell thousands of people just how good she is.

The Golden Question

Why this question escapes most web developers who are putting together proposals for prospects, I don’t know.

It’s a critical aspect in understanding what you’re doing for the the prospect and why.  If you know the answer, and if you don’t then you shouldn’t be in business, then your job of pitching and winning new business should be very, very easy.golden-boy

Why Should The Prospect Do Business With You?

That’s it – why should the prospect do business with you?

Simple question, huh?

When analysing what your prospect needs and wants, this ‘golden question’ needs to be in the back of your mind.

Generally speaking, clients don’t buy a web site from us.

They’re buying a tool to generate more profits from their business because they want something like:

  • a holiday
  • a new car
  • a bigger nest egg

Your prospects are in business.  They want to make money.

Tell them and demonstrate to them exactly how you will help them make money should they do business with you.

You see, the golden question leads to the golden answer.  The answer that will make you money.


It’s Time For An Education Shakeup

Tasmanian Education authorities are up in arms over a recent increase in Southern Tasmanian usage of the teacher rating web site

And the owners have the perfect blissfully ignorant ally to help their cause – High School students who think others care about what they think about their teachers.

There’s no filtering of any sort of the comments, as evidenced by just the 2nd teacher I clicked on: [Read more…]
