Anno Digital – Join the digital era
My name is John Conleth, I’m founder of Anno Digital.
If you’re anything like me you want to know that in a year or twos time you’ll still have a secure source of income and enough time to enjoy that security.
That’s why I started Anno Digital, to help anybody start their own digital business and break free from the 9 to 5 world!
Since I was a child I’ve been dreaming up mad ideas for businesses that I’d run and it’s something that has never left me. I love building stuff and I’ve always been into computers so after school I became a software developer. During my career as a web developer I’ve transformed a lot of businesses through digital integration, automation and self-service of digital tasks. It is rewarding work but it’s more rewarding for the companies I work for (if you get my meaning).
In 2011 I made the decision to take my best idea out of my head and make it a reality. So every evening and most weekends I worked on my new digital product and it was a massive project. I was so excited when it was finally built, it was a unique and clever product that had the potential to become a household name like Google or Facebook. So why am I not a millionaire you might be asking? Well the answer is marketing… I built a product without ever thinking about how people would find it and how I’d make money from it! Yes, silly me 😉
I quickly realised that I had made something that required a lot of selling with very little return. It was a very low point for me.
I marked the failure down as a life lesson and decided to try find out how people were making money online. I quickly discovered that people with far less digital prowess than me were making a far better living from the digital economy and they were spending a fraction of the time doing so.
Normal people like you and me just decided to branch out and learn to become digital marketers! With a basic knowledge of the web and the right digital marketing training anybody can build a massive profitable business online. You just need to know where to start.
So I signed up to every free (and some not so free) get rich quick and internet marketing list I could find. I even got stung by one but that story is for another day. One stood out miles above the rest. I don’t know about you but I’m very cautious about getting my credit card out but after multiple emails and phone calls I just knew that if I was ever going to have my own digital business then this was it… there was nothing else in the same league so I joined the SFM and it was the best decision I ever made – oh apart from marrying Bernadette of course 😉 – wow dodged a bullet there!
Having the system, products, tech support and phone selling all done for me is a God send, without it I would have given up on my digital lifestyle dream.
At this point you might be thinking why would I want a second job if my 9-5 is so great? Well I do have a great job that pays well etc. but last year the company went through a bad financial patch and started putting people on half time and cutting wages. I wasn’t affected because I work in digital but I hated the idea that something outside of my control could have such a massive impact on my life. It wouldn’t matter if I worked harder or longer hours etc. if the company decide to cut employee number 8930297 then I was cut.
I’ll quickly share that another eye opener for me was comparing a large traditional company to a digital company.
If you have any questions about how to get started or have any fears about taking on your own digital business then feel free to send me a message. We are always looking for people who want to learn how to become digital marketers, work hard and reap the massive rewards.
To your success!
