Dear Small Business Website Builder,

 

If you want to build a website that truly reflects your business and brand…

 

And literally, HAVE CLIENTS SWARMING to your products and services…

 

Then this will be the most important book you’ll ever read.

 

Here’s why:

 

My name is Cameron Theobald and I have been designing websites and working with small business owners in Australia for the past 4 years.

 

I started out with NO WEBSITE EXPERIENCE.

 

I could barely operate a free Facebook account and thought that anyone in IT was a nerd who needed to step outside and get some fresh air.

 

In a way, I was forced to learn web design…

 

I began tinkering with a website that I purchased for different business I was running at the time.

 

I paid thousands of dollars for a web designer to make this site and was devastated by the end result.

 

My business was in its infancy, and I didn’t have much money to spare…

 

I thought that having an online presence would boost my business and bring in more cash.

 

So, I spent all my money on this DISGUSTING excuse of a website…

 

I could not allow my business to remain online in such a state.

 

So I got the login details to the website and set to work redesigning the entire site.

 

I would wake up early every morning and learn how to code, how to navigate a CMS, how to make sure my site was found on Google.

 

I could not let this thing beat me!

 

I was still running a business and was busy being a husband and father.

 

But I knew I had to take my business online and go where my clients were hanging out.

 

Over time my website took shape and clients started rolling in.

 

They loved the website and could not believe I had built this thing from the ground up with no experience.

 

I began to build websites for friends and family and even picked up a few paying clients.

 

Then, one day, I came up with a “crazy idea”.

 

Why don’t you get yourself some qualifications and do this thing for a living?

 

I went to TAFE and studied two courses at the same time so I could become a qualified Web Technician and Business Specialist.

 

I worked my ass off to make sure I understood the technical side of web design and the customer side of running a successful business.

 

Now, when people work with Tradewinds Web Design they benefit from a customer-centric approach that combines broad industry knowledge, modern marketing strategies, and up to date web based technology practices.

 

Everyone thought I was a fool, when I gave up a steady income to go and become a web designer.

 

You must understand that prior to this, I was a technophobe and barely used a smartphone.

 

But I backed myself and knew that I could create a product and service that was cheaper, faster, and better than my competitors.

 

My most popular service was the $299 website package that offered new businesses and money conscious business owners the best value website on the market.

 

My websites used the same technology that companies like Disney, Facebook, Skype, BBC, and Microsoft used to scale their businesses.

 

Customers were astonished when they received their completed websites.

 

Some told me that they were quoted over $1000 for the same thing.

 

So, after many success stories and happy clients, I got to thinking…

 

Small Business is the backbone of our economy.

 

Why is everything out to kill them?

 

They get taxed to death, bound up in red tape, squeezed by large corporations who are in bed with the government, and preyed upon by unscrupulous website providers.

 

I couldn’t take it anymore!

 

I wanted to find a way to offer the help I wish I had when I was starting out online.

 

I wrote this book – 12 Horrifying Website Mistakes That Will Kill Your Online Business to give small business owners a no-nonsense guide for online success.

 

That way, whether you choose to hire a professional, or do it yourself, you will be armed with everything you need to know to succeed online.
