Welcome to Xflow

Xflow is different because I take a multi-faceted approach to improving your business (I’m not all about digital!)

 

My input can be as diverse as suggesting improvements on how leads and enquiries are handled by staff, changing how your business is perceived by consumers, re-thinking your digital strategy, or even optimising stock levels and product promotions to maximise margins.

I can take the time to do this because I work closely with a small group of clients,  I value their custom and I genuinely want to see them to succeed. I’m extremely pro-active and continually advise them on trends and opportunities that have arisen in their marketplace. This is a key difference between myself and my competitors – I provide real actionable insights into what’s happening both online and offline – then create ways to capitalise on them.

My typical process is one of planning, implementing, measuring and refining – played on repeat!

About me

 

I first started my own commercial furniture business in 1996 at the age of 26. At the time I had a little more than $700 to my name and no formal business training. Most people told me not to do it and my competitors thought I was a total mug. But somehow I managed to grow that little business from nothing into a profitable enterprise and then within a few short years had sold it for a six figure sum.

From that early start I created other small businesses including one of Australia’s largest retailers of  ergonomic office equipment and the largest in Western Australia. At it’s peak the business was turning over just under $3,000,000 and netting me nearly $700,000 per annum.

Surely I was doing something right.

 

I have successfully grown businesses where others have failed

 

At the very same time I was turning over $3,000,000, another competitor told me he was getting out of the industry because there was no money in it! Clearly there was a huge difference in the way both of us were thinking and acting in exactly the same business arena.

How was it possible that I was making money while my competitor was getting out? We were both in the same industry after all. So what gives?

 

I believe I know what it takes to succeed in small business

 

I think the main difference between my competitor and I was that I understood how and where to find new clients and how to target quality accounts. However, I also leveraged digital marketing, email marketing and relationship building extensively.  I therefore believe my experience in creating and growing small businesses using integrated marketing methodology makes me a valuable asset to you as a small to medium business owner. I’ll help you master what it takes to succeed in business without offering you empty promises or get-rich quick schemes!

Testimonials

Jay I (Google Review)

“Lee is truly amazing. It is rare to find someone who cares as much about your business as you do and genuinely wants to see your business succeed. Working with Lee and taking his advice, we have experienced a larger volume of quality enquiries, sales have increased and we couldn’t be happier with the growth that we are experiencing. I highly recommend Lee, his knowledge and guidance has been invaluable.”

Roberto T (Google Review)

“We found Lee after years of searching for the right Web developer and SEO company. Lee was a much needed blessing and exceeded our expectations in every way. After years of paying and not receiving what we were paying for, at the cost of our business and financial growth, we cannot say enough about him and highly recommend him. He is honest, he is very knowledgeable, straight-forward, he takes care of ALL your needs quickly, he is reliable, you can count on him and most of all, he does everything he says he will do!!!”

 

Melissa H (Google Review)

“Lee is very knowledgeable when it comes to SEO and digital marketing! What sets Lee apart from others is the time and care taken to interact with you to provide you with the right advice to help you make your choice! Lee is upfront and honest and most importantly won’t charge and arm and a leg like some others! At the same time, he will provide you with the best services! Thanks Lee”

 

Chris S (Google Review)

“Lee was absolutely brilliant! I had to write a business plan and quickly with really no idea where to start Lee not only wrote an amazing plan for me but has also given some really sound advice after the job was done.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Xflow to anyone!
Thanks again Lee”

 

Rod W (Facebook Review)

“I recommend Lee and Xflow Marketing & Consulting because he is a Master and he gets excellent results. “

 

Richard C (Google Review)

“When we made contact with Lee at Xflow Marketing & Consulting to complete an audit of our on line marketing, we knew it needed work but what Lee was able to show us and the tangible results we have achieved with his help have made this a very worthwhile exercise. For a long time I was frustrated at the lack of value I would receive from companies promising great results at inflated pricing for adwords and SEO campaigns. Lee was able to strip back our requirements and show a real technical understanding of the process. The increase in internet enquiries and sales we now make through this medium is testament to his knowledge and understanding what’s required…I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone to engage Xflow for online work…..except my competitors.”

 

Luke M (Google Review)

“Lee has a deep understanding of what’s required to start up, grow and sell a business having successfully done so a number of times. He’s the go to guy to help you build the plan to turn your business idea into reality.”

 

Michael M (Google Review)

Had been tossing up as to whether to bite the bullet and use a service like this for some time, the only regret now is not doing it sooner. Xflow Marketing & Consulting has had an immediate and positive impact on my bottom line.

 

Brent S (Facebook Review)

“Highly recommend Lee if you are looking for help with your business.”
