About Me
 

My business is lead generation and inbound marketing. Working with business owners frustrated at the performance of their website. The focus is locally based retail & hospitality businesses. I also provide social media training on Facebook.

The massive commercial opportunities presented by the internet have captured my imagination and interest for the past 10 years and is the reason for leaving behind the world of finance. I see Facebook for business and Google’s Local Search as the next big things.

Since 2007, I’ve been involved in a number of internet marketing projects including the formation of Physiobench, a cutting-edge solution, providing online treatment from a network of physiotherapists. In 2009, I created Get Above The Fold, aimed at helping small business owners who wanted to become more profitable on the internet.

Extensive hands-on experience came from senior commercial and programme management roles for blue-chip and SME businesses, before forming Pule Consulting Ltd in 2007. My approach is very hands-on, analytical and pragmatic, applying a different set of tactics and solutions to every client.

In 2000, during the internet boom, I was on the management team of Ananova, who provided real-time content to AOL, Cellnet & the US-based Drudge Report. After the internet bubble burst, Ananova transferred into Orange Mobile, so I switched roles into Orange & managed content download deals with third party providers like Disney, EMI & Warner.

As a qualified Scottish Chartered Accountant, I spent my early years in audit before moving to industry becoming Finance Director then branching out into more commercial and marketing focused roles.

I’m an associate of the 6,000-strong Institute for Independent Business consultant network and lead four business 4Networking groups in East Manchester.
