About This Site
“This website sucks, it breaks many of the rules including its omission of the all important <Call To Action> button on your Home Page”......
This was feedback from a Marketing Manager about a year ago, regarding this site and my 'business model'
Stuff that....! :)
He missed the point entirely. This site is not about making money – Pilates isn’t my day job, it’s a hobby and utter passion. That will/should become apparent if you spend but a few minutes perusing.
I started the site to promote a single, weekly class I run in Adelaide’s CBD but it soon became a platform that has enabled me to share a wealth of information (especially under the RESOURCES menu) and to help others.
Hopefully, the material is organised and easy to find (IT being ‘the day job’!). It's aimed at helping :
There are just over 200 (and counting...) google indexed pages including:
All the info / videos / articles / jobs board / cover teaching lists etc are free – always will be.
Many have found it helpful and, apparently, sometimes entertaining (bonus!). I hope it’s of interest and use to you. I appreciate and respond to feedback (good or otherwise) and many aspects of the site have been improved as a result of the comments people have been kind enough to make.
In fact, given this site ‘sucks’, it makes me proud to see it consistently ranking pretty much top on the keywords ‘adelaide’, ‘pilates’. It’s not just the domain name (although, obviously, that helps) but, as far as I can tell, it’s mainly due to the numerous visits I get. I don't pay for Google advertising, so I'm obviously doing something right.
