Hi everyone, Sam Stravelles here
Thanks for popping over to my website stravelles.com.
I have re-directed my Stravelles.com website to this page as I concentrate my web activity just on the one website thepropertydevelopmentcourse.com.
Why redirect I hear you asking?
Because working on only one website never mind multiple websites is tiring!
Stravelles is a private property business which manages my personal portfolio of properties.
It still exists and is stronger than ever.
But we buy, renovate, refurbish and sell property and land...
Do we really need a website?
I don't think so ( I may be wrong and am keeping on the domain).
You see, I have gone full circle on the idea of usefulness of websites.
I loved the idea of having a website and showing the world everything we liked and disliked and what our plans were etc etc.....but then I had to maintain it plus other websites (I am a glutton for punishment).
Stravelles still exists but I found I had three websites for essentially the same business of construction and property and I was like 'why am i doing this'.
Over the past two years very few people came to the stravelles website, and if they did they would maybe surf some pages.
The thing is that I wasn't trying to sell anything retail online so very few people had a reason to visit and I wasn't advertising on googe/facebook/etc etc
Why would people come to the website? Just to get my contact details or address? I started to think what was the point of having this resource open?
As a property development business we don't need to attract new clients so there is no real point to the website.
I was not trying to sell anything on it and all it really did was give my 'about me' and my contact address..
But yet I have the hassle of updating it and maintaining it each year.
So I have decided to just maintain one website for the time being thepropertydevelopmentcourse.com
I offer my quantity surveying services to existing and a small amount of new clients there too plus dispute resolution plus information on the books, audiobooks and podcasts etc
This allows me to spend more time focusing on providing high value courses and training to very specific customers which is what I want to concentrate my time on while developing niche properties that interest me.
