You're invited and I hope to see you there!

PHP's dirty little secret

Sunday 29th of January 2012

In today's show I'll be talking about web development and specifically about a serious problem which is prevalent across the web development community - particularly the PHP community. I'll be explaining how this problem - which I call the "cycle of death" - is literally putting hundreds of companies out of business and, most importantly, I'll be explaining how you can avoid your own web development nightmare. If you have any kind of IT infrastructure or you are considering hiring a web developer then this could be one of the most important messages you'll hear all year.

During the show I mention an article which I wrote last year. Here's a link to the article:

Adwords Magic

Wednesday 26th of October 2011

Today I'm going to tell you precisely how - earlier on this year - I managed to pull in £9,000 (over 14 thousand US dollars!) worth of business PER WEEK by spending just ten pounds per day on Google Adwords. If you're an Adwords user or you're in any way interested in Adwords then I gurantee that this show will change the way you think about Adwords for ever.

I warn you in advance that some of the stuff I'll be discussing today will be rather technical. So, to get the most from this I need you to be totally focussed. This episode is 51 minutes long and it's not easy listening.

So, if you've got your thinking cap on, hit the play button and together let's nail Google Adwords - once and for all.
