History of Summit Web Perth by Chris Dinham
Right, so lets get started. Who am I? My name is Chris Dinham, I am one of the partners here at Summit Web Perth. Originally I was born over East but I grew up in a small town called Wanaka which is in the South Island of New Zealand.
So I’ll say some funny things like ‘jandals’ and “chilly bin’ but contrary to most Australian’s beliefs about New Zealanders: No, I’ve never worked as a scaffolder. But I have worked in the mines, and that’s where I originally started here in Perth.
So I came over and started offshore oil and gas it was a month-on-month off roster and I was there for a little while until i had a little bit of an injury on my shoulder. So I was basically staring down the barrel of sitting on the couch for six months watching Dr. Phil.
Anyone who knows me knows I can’t sit down for a considerable amount of time so the leading up to that surgery I was looking for something to keep me busy.
I went to a mindset seminar by a man by the name of Paul Blackburn (highly recommend him to anyone who’s interested in that sort of stuff) but a couple were speaking there by the name of Matt and Liz Raad and they were talking about how you can buy and sell websites for profits.
So I thought “perfect, that sounds exactly like me” and to explain how you do it it’s a lot like investment properties. So we buy an old, run-down website (might be an informational website etc) we do it up, we monetise it, get ‘traffic’ generating to it and then sell it down the road for a profit. On a website like Flippa.
So for the next six months there was me in a sling, bashing the keyboard with one arm and Dr. Phil blaring in the background. I learned as much as I could about these buying and selling websites.
About the about ninety percent (90%) of the ones I bought I crashed, but then ten percent started to work.
After that six months I took those ten percent websites and, doing one month offshore and then one month back in Perth, I’d just try and build these websites up and they started to gain a little bit of traction.
A couple of friends realised and said: “Chris if you can build these lead generating strategies or lead generating websites overseas, because most of these websites were based in the United States, can you do the same thing for our local business in Perth?” I said sure why not, the principles are exactly the same – and that’s pretty much how Summit Web was born.
