Marketing yourself online

December 14th, 2010 • By: Gavin marketing ideas

There are a number of stages that you will probably go through or jump in at an advanced point when it comes to marketing yourself online.

Letting people find you.

This might be as simple as having your own domain name and a simple 2-3 page website on it. It's always a good idea to get your
own domain name if it is available. I got my son's name just as he was born.

If someone mention your name to someone else the first thing they are going to do if they are interested in your field is to 'google' you. What comes up now?

At the end of the day the best way to ensure that you detemine what comes up is to have your own domain name.

Building a database

Once people are finding you, it's important to start collecting their e-mail addresses so that now or at some point in the future you
can start or continue to build a relationship with them. You may want to promote a service or sell them a product.

Promoting a product or service

First you have to create a product or service, if you are a coach then it might just be promoting your coaching service.

Creating and Selling an online product

This one takes a bit more thought and planning.

is there a need or demand for the product, what format is your product going to be, a PDF, Video Series, Physical book.

Creating a Membership site

This can be the holy grail in providing residual income, what if you had only 500 people paying you £10 a month. That's going to take care of most mortgage repayments.

Which stage are you at right now?

Torpedo putting shaft shatters conventionial putting wisdom

May 11th, 2007 • By: Gavin Golf
Torpedo Golf is a paradigm shift away from conventional thinking about putting.

 utilizing a "Floating Fulcrum" to trick the human neuromuscular system into putting with improved control of stroke path and more importantly, distance control.

Since most 3 putts are a result of poor distance control, control for distance is one of the single most important aspects of putting. The patent pending Torpedo Putter paradigm has been demonstrated in the laboratory setting to dramatically increase the sweet spot of off-centre strikes along with increased ball forward roll and dramatically improve the kinematics of the putting stroke.

Padraig Harrington has been testing the putter shaft for over six months, with Thursday 3rd May marking is debut on the USPGA Tour with its first competitive round of 24 putts and 6 under par… Wachovia Championship May 07  Please see attached article.

The shaft has three functions:

1) Increase the size of the sweet spot -(off-centre hits go as far as centre hits…)

2) Increases ball roll (no jumping or skidding on impact – irrespective of face design)

3) Increased resistance to rotational forces (the face stays straighter-limits the amount of face rotation during the backswing & through swing)

 The position of the weight is key to the whole project, enabling the hands to be passive during the stoke. Swing the grip and let the putter do the work for you. The weight reduces the need for the hands to become active during the putting

The shaft confirms to USGA & R&A standards and is applicable to all putters, straight shafts, single or double bend. 

We at Torpedo Golf & Quintic believe we have a product that is going to be very revolutionary in the golf business.

The science behind the shaft is compelling and with the favourable reactions of European Tour Players that have recently tested the torpedo putting shaft with their favoured putting heads.  The future looks bright for this revelotionary putting shaft.

Padraig Harrington unveils New Putter shaft from Torpedo Golf

May 4th, 2007 • By: Gavin Golf

Padraig Harrington unveiled his new putter shaft yesterday at the Wachovia Championship with amazing results. After his longest ever layoff from golf he jumped into the first round lead at -6

The Torpedo shaft has been developed by Dr Paul Hurrion owner of Quintic Biomechanics Consultancy. .

I was visiting with Dr Hurrion last week and he introduced me to the Torpedo Golf shaft, in his putting lab in Coventry, England ( the same town that Jaguar Cars are made in).

I had been testing one of his other putting tools soon to be released that gives precise feedback on putting accuracy. I was pulling my putts consistantly to the left,

he said try this and handed me the torpedo shafted putter.

He claimed that it increased the sweet spot and made badly hit puts go straight, I was sceptical to say the least. I picked up the putter had no practice swing and had a putt.

It wasn’t intentional but it was a bad swing, the type that on the backswing you know that it is wrong but you dont have the guts to stop. Anyway I followed through and completed the putt and to my amazement it went dead straight.

I said ‘ that cannot be right, using that shaft cannot be fair’ , Paul said it is and it has been approved by the relevant authorities.
