“If you’re a business in Lancashire, I could be the right person to save you money and help you make more money” -Paul Godbold
My name is Paul Godbold, I live in Preston, Lancashire and I am the owner and founder of Luxurious Magazine®. As the sole owner of the magazine, I have not only written thousands of articles, I’ve also learned how to build an international brand without spending money on marketing.
Yes, you read that correctly! Luxurious Magazine which is the first publication in the world to pass one billion views on Google Plus has never paid for any marketing or promotion.
For seven years, my magazine has been in the top two on Google for its generic term ‘luxury magazine’. Although Luxurious Magazine is regarded as a niche magazine, it still has almost 500,000 followers on social media. I am a fervent believer in ethics and I have an unblemished reputation in the world of publishing. My audience was created through organic growth without ever resorting to tricks and underhand tactics.
Admittedly, this took a lot of hard work, but there is no reason why companies I work with cannot adopt some of my techniques and succeed without a huge spend. This is the reason I created The Copywriters. I have seen too many companies, pay vast sums of money for very little return. Probably 60% of what I know can be uncovered in articles on the internet. But, the remainder, such as engaging an audience, timing and etiquette were learned through simple trial and error.
I created Luxurious Magazine in 2011. I am a full member of the Chartered Institute of Journalists. At 39, I was retired and living on the beach on Penang Island via the Malaysian government’s official MM2H retirement program. Five years ago, a family illness brought me back from Penang to Preston, Lancashire. Fortunately, this family member is still with me and I am enjoying being back once more in North-West England
Prior to moving to Malaysia, I lived in various parts of the UK. I enjoyed the fruits of my success through large country houses, sports cars and exotic travel.
I first became involved in marketing/business-building in the early 1990s when I created some medium-sized computer companies. My main business was PC manufacturing and supplying components to the corporate sector. I was able to win contracts with the M.O.D, IBM, Virgin, local governments and numerous global brands, too long to list. This was my first introduction to the power of the internet.
After I sold those companies, I created a business specialising in funding, insurance and other corporate services. I also co-created a well-known financial services group providing independent financial advice, insurance, loans and mortgages. Due to my marketing reputation in the financial services industry. I was invited to become a consultant to two very well-known high-street banks and a UK building society. It was during this time I saw the impending financial crisis in 2007. This prompted me to sell my UK interests and retire overseas.
How can I help you with your marketing
Through my techniques and training, your marketing can be done in-house using your existing staff. You don’t need to pay for a new member of staff or pay large sums of money to a specialist company to do this. I believe, by splitting the roles between various members of staff, they can achieve the same results. In addition, their working day should not be impeded or productivity reduced and you’ll be saving money.
When you hire me to come to your company for a day or two, I will sit down individually with your nominated members of staff and share my knowledge, teaching them how to gain maximum impact without spending money. I can also investigate your existing social media channels and online presence, refining them to ensure that you are not wasting your valuable time.
