The Best Liquid Limestone in Perth?

Some of you might be asking, what the hell is liquid limestone? Well you wont be the first. I’d have to admit myself that I only heard about it several months ago. Only ran into this stuff when I moved to my new place and needed some paving done around my pool. Now living in the inner city of Perth, and being used to the city life. I wasn’t the best when it came to doing things myself around the house. I always tend to call for professional help. Anyways, long story short – a friend of mine mentioned to me about liquid limestone. He explained briefly on what it is, and its awesome features. I especially liked the fact that it is cool to walk on during Perth’s scorching summer heat.

I was pretty much sold on the idea. Because it is not a matter of just buying something of the shelf. The liquid limestone needed to be poured and installed by a professional. I mean, you can do it yourself if you know what you’re doing. But me? No way in hell! Hahaha. Anyways I did my research on the internet by searching for the term “liquid limestone perth” and I came across a company called SOS Liquid Limestone Perth. And I am glad that I did. Why? Because I ended up going with them for the laying of my liquid limestone paving around my pool. The finished product was awesome, words can’t explained how happy I was. Hence why I decided to do this post for you all.

In fact, I’d like to think that this is one of the main reason I created this business blog in the first place. To give helpful tips for local businesses in Perth, which also included reviews such as this one. what better way then to give a glowing review and give credit when credit is due right? Damn right!

Anyways, back to this awesome company. What made them so good that I actually took the effort and write about them in my blog? Well, I can write on and on about why they are great in my eyes. But if I did that, this post will never end. And I mean it! So instead, I’d like to nail it down to the top 3 reasons to why I highly recommend SOS Liquid Limestone Perth for any one in Perth considering liquid limestone.

1. Superior customer service

From the moment I was talking to them on the phone, right through to when I say good bye to them. They have always placed me (the customer) first before anything else.

2. Prompt service

Not only they were super nice and friendly. Making it easy to communicate with them. But they were very prompt when it comes to doing the actual work. Turning up on time and finishing as scheduled. Can’t be any happier!

3. quality product and finish

This says it all. They use quality liquid limestone products and the finish is magnificent.

To wrap it up, here’s a quick video I found on the internet showing them in action:

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions From Local Business Owners About Marketing

Business Frequently Asked Questions

Working with business owners from all walks of life providing different services in various communities has given me great insight into the frequently asked questions that most business owners ask their consultants.

For that reason, I wanted to create a blog post here on Oftalmo Com giving you the answers in the most comprehensive way I can. In doing so, I hope to help as many business owners as possible reach further and gain more from their business.

1.What Is The Most Cost Effective Way To Get More Customers?

This question is one I get a lot. All though there is no definitive answer, there are a few things most business owners can do to get more business that doesn’t cost your arm, leg and the wallet in your pocket.

a. Join a local business group.

Local business groups are an excellent way to meet new people, share your skills and start networking. If you have been trying to build your business without a network of like-minded people, you have been fighting an uphill battle.

Every business group is different. Some cost money; some only allow one business owner per niche, and some are just meeting groups to chat and share. None the less, they are all valuable and well worth the time.

b. Join a local Facebook Group.

Get additional Work at Local networking Groups

This is similar to the experience above however you can do this from the comfort of your home. Facebook groups are free and usually allow a small amount of self-promotion meaning you get the exposure that over time, will help get more customers.

c. Ask for referrals and reviews.

It’s not a crime to ask your loyal customers for a review of your services or a referral. Some people frown at this, but others will see it as an urge to grow and succeed. People like successful people. Asking for reviews and referrals is common practice in many high-end services. There is no reason you can’t do it to.

2. Where should I spend My Marketing Budget?

This is another question I get asked a lot.

If you’re going to spend money on marketing you should most definitely be spending it on your own website. Check out this post about myths when marketing a local business for more information on what I believe the best steps are when marketing your local business. A hint, build a website and use SEO and or Facebook and Adwords.

3. How Much Should I Be Spending On Marketing?

What is the cost of local business marketing in PerthThis question is one that needs to be addressed differently for each and every business. No two business are alike, but we can still follow the same principles here.

When you are marketing your business you should only ever be aiming for a return on investment. There should be no question you’re making the money back on what ever marketing you do invest in.

If you start a marketing campaign and start to lose money, there is no point in continuing.

There are a couple of exceptions here. Firstly, If your doing online marketing like SEO you should give it at least three months to bring in a return on investment. Ranking in the search engines takes time no matter what your budget is. But, and it’s an important but, you should be able to see improvements in your ranking within the first 45 days. If you pay someone to do your SEO, make sure they give you a screenshot of your ranking at the start and an update every month. This way you can gauge if you made the right choice on the company you are investing in.

There is no doubt SEO is an excellent way to market. It pays off in a big way. But only a few business know how to do it effectively, the rest are all sales monkeys. If your company is actively selling to anyone and everyone. Chances are they are not the right place for you.

Thanks for reading, I hope this information answers some of the frequently asked questions you may have in your business.

The Best Skip Bins Company in Perth?

My very first review is a dump! No no no, I’m not talking about rubbish (literally) but instead a skip bins company (Wizz Binz) right here in Perth! Like a radioactive substance, this review glows very brightly. So what is there to say about this particular skip bin hire company? Depends on who you talk to. But we’re focusing on the positive, since I’ve personally used their service and in a nutshell; their service is awesome! So this post is dedicated to the company linked above.

Now before I elaborate more about this company, I’d like to say that some readers might say I am somewhat biased; but I make no apologies. Why? Simply because I have, first hand, hired them to deliver a relatively small sized skip bin to my residential home during my recent move. So do I qualify to make this review, hell yeah! Also, to the best of my knowledge; there’s not that many reviews for skip bin hire companies out there in the world wide web. So the fact I am doing one in this post is somewhat groundbreaking! Jokes. I speak loudly when it comes to what I think! It’s just the way I am. Can’t really change that can we?

So here’s my honest opinion on this skip bins company in Perth, and if you don’t agree; feel free to comment below.

It all came about when I need to throw away a lot of my junk out during a house move a couple of months ago. At first, I thought I can get away by simply throwing it in my usual green and yellow/recycle bins. But boy was I wrong! And I’m the type of person who doesn’t like to admit when I ‘m wrong. In this instance, I am openly saying that I am wrong. After filling up my green bin within minutes of throwing away rubbish, I quickly realise that I needed a skip bin. To be honest, it doesn’t need to be a large one. Instead, a smallish skip bin would do the job just fine.

A picture of their bin that I actually got:

So right away, I was on the internet searching and researching the different bin hire companies that popped out on the results page. Naturally, I compared their listed prices for similar sized bins and Wizz Binz came out trumps. Not only they had the best pricing but they can also deliver the bin as early as 6am! Talk about prompt service!

As promised, the bin was dropped off in my front yard very early the next morning. The guy that dropped it off spoke very politely to me about the dos and don’ts when it comes to skip bins. Long story short, their customer service was top notch. Prompt and friendly. There wasn’t anything to fault. Good service, quality bins and hassle free payment options. With that said, let’s wrap up this review post.

So if you’re looking to hire a skip bin, then I strongly recommend this mob. I loved their service so much that I featured them on my blog!

What Are The Biggest Myths When Marketing A Local Business?

Local Marketing Myths

In 2016 the world has too much information. With the rise of social media and smartphones, fueled by the need to share an opinion and make a mark, valuable information has gone amuck.

In this post, I will cover four common misconceptions about marketing your local business. What works, what doesn’t and I’ll even do my best to cut the fluff.

So without further ado.Here are the four top myths of local business marketing.

Having a website doesn’t make a difference

This myth has been going on too long. Think of it this way. How much would it cost you to have a store that remains open to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week and even on public holidays? A promotion that runs all day every day producing leads and offering your target audience value at any time anywhere?

That is what a website can do for you. In 2016 when everyone is on the internet at some stage in the day, a high-quality website should be on the top of your priority list.

Granted, just having a website won’t bring your business from bust to boom but, in addition to any of the myths we bust below, your website could be the one thing your company is missing.

SEO Doesn’t Work

Does Online Marketing WorkI hear it all the time. SEO is a waste of money! The truth is, it can be. When you pay someone, who has no experience, no proof of their work you’re always going to be playing with fire. If you like to gamble, don’t do it with SEO.

Finding the right online marketing firm can be a headache. Here are three tips that will help you find the best in the bunch, and bring you into the light when it comes to search engine optimisation.

1. Find someone you can meet with face to face. Make it personal and gauge your trust. If they do not have time to meet up, via Skype or in person, they don’t have the time it takes to promote your business effectively.

2. NEVER outsource your work to a foreign company. Unless your dead set on losing money, keep it local. Perth has some excellent marketers that will retain the money in our community, as well as have valuable local knowledge.

3. Forget about the big businesses! I can’t stress this enough. Large companies like Yellow Pages, True Local, and the likes have not got the staff or the hours in the day to do what it takes to get your website ranked. They will list their properties online and provide you with some leads, but what you want here is your own assets (website) in the search engines.

Look for a smaller, more personal company that can dedicate the hours to your business individually.

Paid Advertising Is too Expensive

Is Paid Advertising to expensive

Another myth I hear all the time while consulting is, paid advertising is too expensive.

I agree to some extent. Paid advertising is expensive. But good paid advertising from a company that can help is not. It’s all about ROI. Return on investment. If you get a loan and spend $2000 per month promoting your business is so terrible? The answer depends on your ROI.

If you get $3,000/M back, your winning. Makes sure you pay someone well who knows what they are doing and has a proven track record. Paid advertising is the fastest way to get in front of people who WILL need your service.

Once you have a winning formula and an ROI, all you need to do is scale. Increase what you put in and you will increase what you get back. Every successful company I have consulted with uses some form of Paid advertising when they need an influx of sales, be it Facebook Ads or Adwords its a must!

Conclusion

I hope you have got some value out of this post. I didn’t want to sell anything, Promote anyone or take any of your money. The reason behind writing this post is purely to offer value.

When it comes to building a business it does cost money. There is no question. Using SEO, PPC, and Social Media to rank your local business and gain new traffic is big business and its big business for a good reason.
