What is Visions Systems and Can We Help You?
It's a really good question and one that you should definitely be asking before you engage any person to help you build an online business. To give you a full answer to that, it's important to understand how this business was born and the levels it's helped businesses reach.
This was not what I expected to be doing...
If you'd told me 7 years ago, that I'd be running a company helping people optimise and streamline their online business, I would have had you checked into a seriously good hospital very quickly.
At that point in time, I'd never heard of WordPress, let alone had any idea of how to tweak it for search engine optimisation, conversion rate optimisation, and build the backend automation systems that make it a hands free operation.
I was just a life coach...
...looking to expand my reach from the few hundred people I could interact with in my daily life, to the few thousand I knew that were searching for answers online.
Fortunately for me, my business parter new a small about online business and he build our very first website. He designed it, built it, and together, we started sharing my message with the world.
I wrote articles, ran webinars, hosted online conferences, and even conducted coaching with students from 4 different continents! And whilst I became more and more comfortable with coaching and sharing ideas online, I still had no idea about the technical side of the business.
Then things got flipped on their head
It wasn't until my business partner decided to move on to greener pastures at the start of 2010 that it became apparent how little involvement I'd had in the technical side of the business and how much I was going to have to learn if I wanted to continue to run this company.
So, I leant.
I started with learning how to build a basic website. I sat myself down in front of WordPress and YouTube for the best part of a month until I could stitch together functional website that worked well enough for now. There were bigger fish to fry than learning HTML and CSS and being able to change the underline colour in the headlines from red to blue. And that bigger fish was getting more traffic to the site.
This is when I launched head fist into the world of Search Engine Optimisation (how to rank higher in the Google search results).
I joined forums, read books, studied DVD's and ran experiment after experiment. Most failed but the ones that worked, WORKED! I managed to increase traffic to the website from a paltry 200 visitors a day to over 2,500 per day in only 6 months!
I felt like that was more than enough to run a successful and stable business so once that traffic settled down, I decided it was time to learn how to turn more of those visitors into customers.
I went through the same process as I did with Search Engine Optimisation. I joined forums, read books, studied DVD's, and ran experiment after experiment. And just like what happened with SEO, most failed but the ones that worked, well... I was incredible. I managed to increase sales from $2,000/month to $10,000/month in half a year - FAR beyond my expectations.
But, I was working like a dog and it was messing up my brain. It was then, I decided it was time to automate the whole operation so my 70 hour week could come back down to a more reasonable 35 hour week.
As I delved deeper and deeper into the world of automation, I ended up creating an automated business that still made good money, despite the fact that I hadn't spent a single hour on it in 6 months.
I thought that was as good at it could get - making a living wage whilst not having to put any effort into maintaining the business.
Then my eyes were opened to what was really possible...
That was when a friend of mine approached me with a business idea. It seemed interesting, fun, and completely outside what I was used to doing so I decided to give it a shot.
We used his technical knowhow and my online business optimisation skills to my business partner and I sitting in his lounge room throwing around ideas, to a company with 14 employees in 5 countries turning over $750,000 a year.
And we did this all in 12 months, whilst I had the freedom to live in 5 cities in three different countries in that time (he lived in 4 cities in 4 countries but lived in the same city twice).
When people saw the success I was having, they started to ask for advice:
- How do I build a website?
- How do I get more visitors?
- People are visiting but not buying, what's wrong?
- Where's the best place to hire a programmer from overseas?
The more time I spent answering questions, the more I realised that there was a significant lack of information available for people who wanted to build and optimise their online business.
This is when Vision Systems was born.
