What can I say about Rowan Shead?
Not much, thanks….
Back in 2008 my wife and I had just commenced our own suburban Real Estate Agency.
Three months later the wheels fell off the economy as the Masters of The Universe came up empty after losing at the Casino of Greed.
The outlook for us was a little bleak. Home prices went into freefall, buyers ran for the hills.
However I could see through the doom and gloom that a new age was about to dawn and I knew that if I could jump in and embrace the ride on the developing tsunami, things would be ok.
I welcomed myself to the new ‘Save and Seek Value’ Economy – The exploding world of online business and commerce.
“Where do I start?” I wondered
I’d heard of blogs, I thought that websites were just Yellow Pages ads on steroids, social media platforms were only for telling people what you had for breakfast and dinner and landing pages were things you caught flies with.
I knew that we had to become more engaging on our own website and I asked one of the techs at the digital group who built the site for a link or tab to a blog I wanted to write. He said that I would need to outsource it and he recommended this guy he knew – Rowan Shead.
I got straight onto Rowan and by asking him a couple of what I thought were straight forward questions he then opened up a whole new world for me.
We seemed to talk for hours and each time I thought my head would explode with the knowledge he was sharing with me at the pace of a locked on AK47.
Before I knew it, we were setting up landing pages, branding myself, publishing blogs, posting on social media and business really picked up.
For a bloke who was 44 or 45 at the time, this was like undertaking a mature age Uni course, but with almost immediate and quantifiable results.
I learned so much from Rowan at the time and I am still working with him.
Since those early baby steps, I have built and successfully launched my own online real estate agency, appeared on TV and Radio, written and published scores of blogs and posts, love writing persuasive content and copy for other businesses, conduct webinars, produce short videos, and continue to expand my digital presence to assist my clients.
Without Rowan, none of this would ever have happened.
He is a master of the digital marketing space and someone I would recommend you speak to if you want to move your business to the next level.
