Square One – How I Ended Up In This Position and Why I am Happy About It

Okay, you may be wondering (or you may actually give a flying F**) –  but I wanted to let people who DO know me why I have very little left online if I have been online since 2009.

The thing is I lost ALL of my previous hosting – ALL OF IT!

So that means every website, page, post, funnel and sales page is gone…

Nada, zilch, zip…

Well that is the hard truth for my online properties.

What happened?

I had a period of family trauma where I simply was not online for several months and as a result I hadn’t paid my hosting fees (I had more important shit going on…)

So my hosting company terminated my account and basically wiped everything. Even though I was paying extra for backups and storage with them. Everything is now gone…

However I do still have all of my locally produced content, videos, PDFs and tools.

I was gutted at first, then had a bit of a realisation…

Time for a FRESH Start Online!

Here’s the thing – I have been online for 8 years and in that time learned a LOT of valuable lessons, gained a lot of knowledge and I can use that to my advantage moving forward.

What I feel is more important than all of that

I have the knowledge, skills, tools and experience to start over – and that is exactly what I am going to be doing right here on Broadcast Geeks.

Even better than that is I have new plans and ideas. One of which is the change that was needed in my business.

You see, I simply wasn’t happy with the way things were going or the exact course of action that my online buiness was taking. But at the same time because I had invested so much time, effort and money into the prevous funnels, pages and websites. I simply couldn’t bring myself to take them offline.

To many ‘What ifs’ kept coming into my head…

Now I have NO choice, but to change and rebuild. So that is exactly what I plan to do.

I have a fresh start and with that brings new direction, ideas and plans that DO suit me.

What does that mean for you the reader?

Well for one, I am here to help – it is what I LOVE to do!

In-fact that is what makes me tick…

So if I CAN help you, please get in touch with me and ask away.

If I can, I will help!

My Ultimate plans for Broadcast Geeks as a Platform

I want to chat about my skills, experience and interests online. At the end of the day, I am a Geek when it comes to online tech, video, audio and all of that good stuff. So that is what I plan for this site moving forward. That plus a lot of good fun along the way.

I also fully plan to re-launch my Podcast – (you may remember my Simple Digital Profits Podcast).

Well I want to do a Podcast again. I did have a Podcast before but when I got too busy doing other stuff, I simply stopped with it and let it decline. This has been a desire of mine for such a long time and one I will 100% be doing now I have this new platform to work from.

I will also be doing product reviews, tech reviews and also adding in the latest developments in the online world and how you can continue to grow your business and get your message out there to the people that need to hear it.

I will be looking at all of the latest and greatest of marketing skills and changes to keep Broadcast Geeks on the cutting edge of what is happening and how you can leverage this within your business.

The other BIG change for me

Pretty much everything I do online will be via this very platform. So rather than having multiple websites with different funnels, pages, posts etc. I plan to have all of it on here.

A one stop shop for Broadcast Geeks and Chris Cole…

Basically with me now consolidating everything, I am branding myself and the domain BroadcastGeeks.Com as ME, my face and my online business.

So that is why I am happy about my fresh start. I get to build a brand new platform from scratch. I no longer have the ‘What ifs’ and distractions of other websites, funnels etc to deal with.

It is all going to be done here. I know that in time you will enjoy this site when I have it filled with solid content that helps, guides and inspires people.

So with my fresh start I also have a new slogan/tag line:

Broadcast Geeks – Helping You Broadcast Your Message Online

What are your thoughts on this?

I would love you to help me tweak/better this slogan if you can. To do that let me know in the comments.

Maybe over time it will naturally tweak itself and develop along side the site…

So with that said, I will speak to you soon and would love to have you follow along with my journey back from nothing, as who knows…

Watching me could help you grow at the same pace…

Speak soon,
