When I am using Google to look for a product or service I often look for a page that is titled ‘About us’ this is because I like to know the people behind the business who they are and what the look like.
Is this just because I am inquisitive? Or just plain nosy? No, I don’t think it is (although I am nosy!) I think it is because I like to know who I am talking to if I choose to ring them up and even knowing a bit of background about the person or people running the business allows me to feel more connected to them and more likely to use their service or buy their product!
It was a conscious decision when creating our new website to have a bio and a photograph of Paul, Edward and myself so that we were visible to our customers and should they choose to see what we look like they can!
Moving on from this I thought that it might be a good idea to find out a bit more about Paul and I, so I compiled some questions, which Paul gave me a strange look when I asked him to answer them!
Anyway here they are…
What is the best part of your job?
P: Being out and about most days, seeing different properties and meeting a variety of different people.
H: Meeting people, networking and hatching marketing ideas!
Do you have a hobby?
P: Cycling, snowboarding and playing the guitar. The first two I don’t get to do as much as I would like to!
H: I like crafty things, although I wish I was better! I am currently finishing a tapestry I have had for months now! I also have a growing passion for gardening which I blame on Martin from Cowells Garden Centre!
If you won the Lottery what would you do/buy?
P: Go on holiday and buy a place in Whistler, BC in Canada for ski holidays!
H: Buy a new car! Cars are a bit of an obsession in our house! I would like to buy some land and build a house (as would Paul) and I would donate money to charity, the Parkinson’s Disease Society, British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research.
What is your favourite band/singer?
P: The Beatles
H: I can’t decide on just one!
What is your favourite memory?
P: My son being born.
H: When I saw my son for the first time.
I didn’t realise until I saw the answers to Paul’s questions that we had the same favourite memory!
I hope these questions helped you learn a little more about us and maybe got you thinking about some answers of your own!
