Hi! My name is Gordon Sheppard
I hail from a little town just outside Edinburgh in Scotland, United Kingdom.
I'm married (20 years + ) with two teenage sons and have had a steady off-line career in technology based customer service and support.
I've been on line browsing around the internet since the late 90's, but only in the last 3 years or so become more interested in the "medium" of the world wide web. As since then have been experimenting with and trying to build ways of generating income streams from the web. This experiment continues on a daily basis, but I do actually get a bigger thrill from testing and tweaking the technology that runs some of my sites and services. And coming from a customer support background, seem to find myself gravitating toward helping others with the technical issues many seem to have when they decide that they too want to run a web based service or two.
I have several sites, some with matching blogs that are designed to generate inbound traffic to the domain (as I said the experimenting continues!), only one or two key sites that actually do generate income to some degree - each offering services for the internet marketer. Over time, maybe you'll be find these through this forum and make use of them
I "bumped into" Brad during a recent email marketing campaign I was running which did enough to provoke an email back at me from Brad. We struck up a conversation (lesson 1 : real people like to deal with real people, not just be on a "list") and, well here I am.
Looking forward to sharing ideas and tips here with fellow members and well as checking out some of your sites and services.
