David held a LinkedIn Training class for a group of us business owners. He said we would give us two "Ninja Secrets" to boost our LinkedIn rankings. They will make the difference! He also showed us how to add 100+ people to your LinkedIn Network, provided each of us with a LinkedIn Checklist, and why and how you should utilize "Pulse". I left with one goal, to work on my LinkedIn 1 time per week. I would recommend all business owners to take a couple of hours for training with David or at least speak with him on the services he provides. He has been very valuable to our business.
This company was recommended by a colleague who used them. I had a phone consultation with David Johnstone in which he collected a lot of information about me and my business. He created my new website, added a shopping cart, and made it exactly what I wanted it to be. It needed some tweeking in appearance, which David is still work on. He gets back to me quickly, takes action quickly, and is professional every step of the way. He has given me extra help in learning how to maintain my new website, and promoting it. I feel like he took me by the hand and showed me how to have an amazing site that brings a lot of business and make my website stand out on the web. I would recommend this company to anyone who needs a website, webstore, blog, or simply assistance in getting their site noticed on the web and in social media. Top notch all the way!
My experience with David from Flash Forward sites has been positive. David helped me better understand of how SEO works and what it can do for me and my business. David optimized pages for my website which his fees were very reasonable. He also added in some security plugins which I didn't have. David is very knowledgeable with social media and SEO. I recommend David to anyone needing this type of service for their website.
David worked with me setting up a LinkedIn profile for my new business. He spent time educating me on the benefits and uses of LinkedIn. David was patient and had to do a great deal of mind reading to design my profile initially. He added his own touches to make it more results driven. I will be using Flash Forward Sites again soon for another Social Media Tool and would highly recommend the company to everyone from beginner through advance.
David was a lifesaver when I needed to merge three different websites into one single site. He was absolutely prompt in responding to my request, and easily had a solution to bring three sites into one. I was amazed at his professionalism, friendliness and vast knowledge; what seemed like a huge, messy problem felt like a breeze for him to solve. I am grateful to him for allowing such ease when it comes to the headache of technology! When my site was down at a time I really needed it functioning, David responded to my email immediately, and found the solution just as quickly. He is my go-to for all things web and I would recommend him to anyone I know! Thanks David!
I have had many updates and modifications done to my website. David's work is excellent and prices are reasonable. I recommend him to everyone looking to build or update their website.
Do you need help getting a business Facebook page created? Do you want to increase traffic to your business Facebook page? Need helpful tips for better engagement with your clients? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you need to contact David Johnstone at Flash Forward Sites. He can help you with all of you Facebook needs.
As a social media novice, David Johnstone's recent LinkedIn workshop in Sedona was most helpful. He is a knowledgable and engaging instructor and even made the process easy and fun. My "aha" moment came when David shared his Ninja Secret on how to boost your position in search results. I finally really "got it". I look forward to participating in another of David's social media workshops and definitely will consider using David for additional social media coaching. Thank you David!
I attended today a LinkedIn workshop with David Johnstone from Flash Forward Sites. This was a refresher training since I attended a similar workshop by David about two years ago. Since social media is in constant change, this training was of benefit because there's always a new trick to learn.
David conducted the workshop demonstrating his knowledge on the subject and ability to impart it. This is one of the reasons I had to participate of the training.
There were certain ideas, which David calls "Ninja Secrets" and are not taught in ordinary training, that, by themselves, are worth the time and money invested in the workshop. I suggest to any person interested in learning more about LinkedIn or any other aspect of social media to seek David's workshops.
We have utilized their services for more than a year and are impressed with their quality and dedication to us. Their knowledge is top notch. Ask and it is done. The professionalism, quality and timeliness of their work is outstanding. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to get their website up and running or just wants it maintained. David provides quality service and reasonable prices. Steve- CTR Construction
The level of knowledge and service is world class! David goes above and beyond to make sure you are truly successful and visible in your online marketing needs. He helped my Facebook business page soar to heights I never imagined!
CAN YOU HANDLE MORE CLIENTS?
When growing your business, its all about HOW you spread the word, so people learn about you.
Remember the phrase “Build it and they will come” from the movie “Field Of Dreams”? That usually doesn’t work with businesses. You need to promote your products or services by telling people. Don’t sit back and “hope” that because you have a website that they will magically come.
Think of it like a party invitation. You don’t just plan a party for next Saturday night, then HOPE people will magically learn about it and come … right? It’s the same for building and promoting your business …. you need to TELL people.
You WANT people talking about you, leading to more new people being interested to learn more.
This all starts with … how many people did you TELL? Meaning … how many people are learning about you, hearing things about you, and recommending you?
Do you have a great reputation online? Or, are you invisible?
WHAT ARE YOU DOING NOW?
Here are some questions to get you thinking about how you could be spreading the word, to tell people about your products or services.
- What are you doing to reach new clients? (people who don’t know you yet)
- How do you tell people about your products, services, and specials?
- What followup are you doing to reach past clients to help them purchase from you again?
- Are you taking advantage of all the free stuff?
– Blogging on your website
– Google maps
– Nextdoor App
– Bing maps
– Apple maps
There are hundreds more places, but the ones above are the most important ones to start with.
- What PAID services are you using? The free stuff only get’s you so far, so you WILL need to use one or more of these.
– Nextdoor app offers
– Google adwords
– Other sites for your industry? (Avvo, thumbtack, home advisor, groupon, trip advisor, my guy referrals, etc )
– Press Releases
- Is your website connected to Google and are you receiving the free data google is collecting about your website?
- What is your most popular page or content on your website? And what are you doing to turn those visitors into buyers or clients?
- How are you following up with people who visit your website? And people who have watched your videos?
- What are you doing to continuously grow your email list?
- Do you have goals for the number of sales you want?
- How are you asking clients for a review? And are you asking someone every day?

- After each completed sale, how do you ask for a referral?
- How do you followup with past clients to remind them you still want referrals?
- Who are your Referral Partners? This phrase, referral partner, may be new to you. Its someone who’s ideal client is the sames as yours. But your product or service does NOT compete with them. Here are a couple examples to help you see this…..
A) a Chiropractor, massage therapist, and physical therapist. They all serve the same clients, but have different services. It’s EASY for one to refer their client to one of the others. Everyone benefits when the same client is passed around.
B) a Realtor and a mortgage person. Again, different services but the same type of client to share.
So WHO or what type of business would be a great Referral Partner for you?
- How do you educate your Referral Partners so they always know what specific type of client you are looking for?
- Who is your best Referral Partner?
- How do you measure the success of your promotions and advertising? Both the free ones and the paid ones?
Things are constantly changing. So what worked well previously, doesn’t mean it’s still working today and tomorrow.
Knowing what is being successful now, helps you to know where to invest more time and money. As well as cut loose those that aren’t working for you.
