Why we are doing this?
I had a comment posted by a Chris yesterday. Quite aggressive and very rude but it made me think - so why am I doing this?
There are various reasons and they keep increasing the more I do.
Despite what Chris said, I have run several of my own businesses from start up, some successfully and some not. In fact for 35 years that is what I have been busy doing. I know the difference between failure and success and bullshit and the truth. That is one reason I do this - to make sure that the ECf platforms cannot get away with the lies they have been stringing people along with. The evidence we put out here is all factual, backed up by filed company accounts.
Having started this blog, I came across a few people who enjoyed it and so carried on. In the early stages, I had no intention of making this a commercial venture. However, as luck would have it, people liked the approach and started asking me for advice. So the blog has been the the driver for ECF Solutions Ltd, which is about to launch its first ECf campaign.
Also as a result of the blog, we had approaches from several papers and websites asking if we could write for them. Hell yes, if you pay us, we said. And they did.
So this blog, which Chris has so ridiculed, has now produced two sources of income and started a new business for someone who had semi retired. I have to say I'm loving being back in the saddle Chris.
I had no idea what content marketing was before I started this. When I did my Cranfield MBA the internet was just getting started. Now I have it for breakfast every day.
Chris you will have to forgive me for not publishing your comment but it was written with such venom that most of it doesn't make sense. Feel free to try again but take a little time to read it through. Happy Easter to All.
