"I wasted over two hours on this, I thought I was going nuts!"

We've all been there: sitting at our PC doggedly searching and re-searching Google with keywords designed to unveil the answer to our questions.

That damn image isn't sitting right on the page. 

Your list is calling everyone Buddy despite your best attempts at getting it to use the first names you worked so hard at getting.

Your Ultimate Guide is stubbornly displaying "404 Page Not Found" whenever you fill out your name and email and test your opt in forms.

And pages 5 through 11 are displaying in some weird tiny font that you've never seen before in your life.

You woke up this morning and, as you finished up your breakfast, thought you'd get on with adding the polish to your Flagship course's third module unaware that your website had very different plans. Your VA is emailing you saying that they've received seventeen emails today saying that your latest blog post has squares instead of emoticons (and she swears that it looked right on her machine before she sent the email).

You remember checking, and it looked right to you as well.

Time to hit Google again. "Square images instead of proper ones" you type. Nope, that's not the query I want, you think to yourself as you scroll through the results explaining how to properly size Social media images.

So much for module three...

Want to free up 10+ hours every month so you can make your business explode?

What can you do with an extra ten hours every single month? 

How much faster will your business grow? How many more pages of epic content will you be able to create? How many videos can you film and release?

How many people will you be able to deeply interview for your next product?

How much less stressed out will you be knowing that you don't have to worry about your website? Or your email list? Or even getting your content from Google Docs to your website?

What if you could get the two hours you spent formatting your latest blog post back? Would you write your next post now so that you could relax next week?

Or would you spend that time with your loved ones, walking on the beach, knowing everything is in hand?

It can happen

I received the opening headline on this page in response to a solution I had just Slacked over to my Diana, an amazing woman, who routinely keeps multiple plates in the air, and works multiple jobs: the day job, and the side hustle.

When she works to her core strengths, she is fast, efficient, and produces amazing content, bringing massive value to a wide array of people that have come to depend upon her.

When she has to work on the technology used in her business, things slow down. She's working outside of her core strengths, and things take longer.

More time is wasted on searching for various keywords on Google, and she's not enjoying things as much.

It's probably easier to demonstrate this than it is to explain, so:

“Dude…Jonathan is a f*cking rockstar and you better get on his radar before everyone else does. Not only does he know an incredible amount about websites and IT, he’s a lovely person. I really feel like I’m talking to a good friend when I reach out for help. He makes having tech issues less scary and not the end of the world. If you need help with something or you simply don’t want to do this kind of work yourself. Jonathan is your man.”

– Diana Tower from dianatower.com

"I have no idea how you do this stuff so fast!"

Jonathan Ballinger

Hi, I’m Jonathan Ballinger, and I’ve been working with technology for over two decades.

WordPress websites, and their supporting services, are my core strength. When my core strengths are combined with my client's core strengths, the result is a business that effortlessly uses technology to support it.

Diana (from a few paragraphs ago) will spot an issue with her site, or some other piece of software, and mention it to me. I'll investigate, then make the change, and explain what I did.

Simple, and effective.

Do you find yourself “wasting” the time you have allocated to working on your business hunting down solutions to what look like small problems with your website? Do you find yourself dreaming of the money you could be getting if you used that time more productively, on the work you can charge people for?

Do you feel like you are doing your clients a disservice as days pass and you find yourself losing hours (and we all know time is money. How much is an hour of YOUR time worth to you?) on stuff that should just be working?

You’ll sit down and start working on your business, only to look up four hours later and realise you’ve spent all the time working for your business. Maybe the font will look just right, but you could have completed some client work in that time, and been well paid for it.

Has that ever happened to you?

Or have you spent that time on the content, ending up with a piece that you are SO proud of, only to realise that it doesn’t look as good as you imagined when it's on your website?

You have limited time, and your business is clamouring for your attention. Your virtual assistants are billing higher than expected hours for technology issues, when, really, you want them to be rattling off tasks that you've already trained them to do, not learning how to handle your software.

I get it! You’re a business owner and are overflowing with ideas for your business.

You have new programs you want to develop for your audience and want to keep growing. You probably also have more client work than you can complete (and that's if you are able to make the time to devote to it).

You don’t want technology to get in the way.

You’re thinking about having an evergreen webinar act as a lead generator for your next project, but, ugh, you don’t have the time to figure out the software, or work out how to wire it up so that it looks like it’s actually part of your website.

What if you could focus on the substance of your business, knowing that the style will look exactly as you hoped?

Wouldn't it feel great to experience this?

Introducing Guru in Your Pocket

Guru in Your Pocket is a way for you to get help from me, on a regular basis, with all of your tech problems.

Gain hours a month back to work on your business by offloading your site’s busy-and-not-so-busywork off to a trusted advisor. Then use that time to work on the parts of your business which directly make you money.

  • Your courses should look similar and enhance your company's brand, yet they don't.
  • Your product detail page should match the look-and-feel of your homepage, but it's not quite there yet.
  • You just want the site to get out of your way so you can focus on the tasks that earn your company money, but that never seems to happen.
  • You want to move from MailChimp to Drip, but you don't know where to start.
  • Your portfolio images don't look as good as the images in your blog posts, and that’s annoying as you want the portfolio to look perfect! Why couldn’t it have been the other way round?
  • You know your brand colours and typography, but your pages aren't matching!

It should be easy, but nothing you’ve found on Google is helping.

Your business is growing, but you don't want the hassle or expense that comes with hiring a full-time tech guy yet. Your team has been remote up until now, so why change what's working?

Surely there’s a way to get solid advice from someone that lives and breathes technology and software on a daily basis without breaking the bank?

Yes! There is.

You can get direct access to me. When your tech breaks, I'll fix it. I’ll be there for you when the rain… sorry, sorry, Friends flashback there!

But I will be there for you when you get a tech issue, have a question, or simply want a recommendation.

  • Give me your tech tasks. Ask a query when you run into a roadblock while working on your latest piece of epic content.
  • Ask a query when new technology legislation comes out.
  • Google tells you to set up something on your website? Just forward the email on to me, and I'll take care of it for you.
  • Get an email you don't understand? Just forward the email on to me, and I'll take care of it for you.
  • Annoyed because you can't get that one headline to play right with the images above it, particularly on mobile? Just let me know and I'll find a solution for you.
  • Wondering just what the impact of moving from one host to another will be, or splitting off a chunk of your business into its own site so that you can sell it off to someone? I can help you put together a plan of action, and execute the steps required.

More specifically, here’s how it’s going to work…

I'll take care of your tech tasks, so you don't have to worry about them.

What? You need more? Okay!

  1. More valuable time. You’ll gain back hours each month by not having to worry about those annoying tech tasks any more. You can use those hours to skyrocket the growth of your business. Time is more valuable than money after all. You can make money with the extra time. You can devote more time to your family if you're not having to deal with technical issues.
  2. Your very own IT department. It’ll be like having a technical guy on employ without the hassle of employing someone and dealing with taxes, pensions, and all that. You can ask questions, assign work, and monitor what’s being done. As a self-starter, I'll spot some work and propose that I work on it in such a way that you can review the proposal, then say "Yep, go for it."
  3. Full, in-depth company technology audit. A full audit will be carried out, to work out which aspects of your company's technology tools are leaving the most money on the table.
  4. A backlog of tasks. Then we’ll work together to determine the order in which all identified tasks are to be completed. These tasks will be recorded on a secure, private task board, giving you peace of mind and allowing you to focus on those activities that relate to your core strengths.
  5. Do, with my help. If you’re a hands-on type of manager, we'll put together a list of tasks that you can tackle, safe in the knowledge that I'm on hand if you get stuck.
  6. Or you can just say “Make it so!” Turn the whole shebang into one more thing you don’t have to think about. Just ask me to work through the task list that we've prioritised together, and I will.
  7. Got a question? We’ll use a private Slack channel (either on my server, or I'll use your existing systems) to securely communicate in, allowing you to ask a question when it occurs to you and then forget about it until it is answered (within 24 hours).
  8. Want to know what’s been done? Quick requests are carried out there and then (when the question is seen) and added to Trello afterwards to ensure a complete record of work exists. Longer requests are added to Trello, and then prioritised, ensuring nothing gets forgotten. A report is produced at the end of each month of what has been identified, worked on, and completed.
  9. I won’t sit on my hands on your dime. When the backlog drops to five items or fewer, I'll re-audit your business to identify further outstanding tasks, ensuring that everything is regularly monitored. This audit will otherwise take place every three months, ensuring issues are never lost in the cracks.
  10. Peace of mind. Work will continue on your site, granting you the time to focus on your strengths and grow your business. You will have the peace of mind that comes from knowing your site is in good hands, and someone else will fix any issues. You’ll also have someone to answer all your techie questions.
  11. Seven day notice period. For when you grow to the point where you are ready to hire a full time techie or you’ve learned enough from working with me that you’re comfortable doing it all yourself. Just let me know a week before your next bill is due and we’ll part as friends!

Now, you might be wondering if Guru in Your Pocket is right for you?

If you can say “YES!” to any of these questions…

…you're PERFECT for Guru in Your Pocket.

  • Have you (or one of your VAs) ever spent hours Googling for a solution to a problem you've noticed on your site, perhaps not finding a solution at all, and getting nowhere?
  • Have you seen the time you've had available for working on your core business get eaten up through dealing with “small stuff” tech issues, or managing the person dealing with them?
  • Do you want to explosively grow your business and audience, by gaining hours to work on your most important tasks?
  • Have you been considering hiring a tech expert, or do you wish you had someone you could offload your company's technology concerns to?

Guru in Your Pocket is not right for you if:

  • You don’t have a website already with steady, consistent income.
  • You aren’t willing to listen to suggestions regarding your website.
  • You aren't interested in accelerating your business growth by getting more of the most valuable resource you have: your time.
