"Over the last few years I've generated over £5m in new sales revenue and I want to pay it forward. I work with organisations of all shapes and sizes from sole traders and small companies to larger multi-chain brands to grow their sales by helping to improve their lead generation process and create customised sales processes that are more effective and easier to use!"
Paul is originally from Tunbridge Wells, Kent. His first business started when he was only 13, selling his own mixtape CD’s in the age of Napster & Limewire. Although ultimately unsuccessful, Paul had his first taste of business, and it taught him that if he could sell an idea, then he could sell anything!
After dropping out of University (read this post for more on this story), Paul moved to London in 2008 and started his sales career selling high-end commercial property and office space. Shortly afterwards the recession hit, and he found himself back in the job market and moving to Manchester.
Trust your intuition and success will follow
Landing himself on the sales floor of a Google marketing agency, Paul quickly realised that this was the future and within six months he had gone from being a phone jockey, to a team leader, to the sales manager. He was then headhunted to start a sales team at a rival media agency which, with his help, turned over £750,000 in its first 12 months.
Realising that he no longer wanted to pay someone else's mortgage, he founded his first website design & SEO agency.
After growing his business through direct sales and networking, Paul noticed the shift to social media marketing and content development as a method of increasing the return of direct sales strategies. At this point, he began his own journey creating original content as the voice of social sales online.
Bee Social was born as the first agency to deliver more than just social media management, but also brand development, sales strategies and social marketing that sells!
Paul’s life ambition is to design and build his own home so he has somewhere to come back to once he’s travelled the world, with his best friend and wife Jade.
