The business side of Martyn Brown’s online career didn’t come until the late 1990s when affiliate marketing was the name of the game along with newsletters via email.
After running several offline magazines for home businesses, Martyn launched a major local community magazine. This ran for around seven years and also won a national award for Best Local Magazine in the UK. Then a new local community magazine for his local area was launched which, eventually, led to the main online business that is still being run today, namely, Marketing Bugle.
While all this was going on, an online magazine for businesses named ‘Working Hours’ was being published every month. This became the longest-running online business magazine in Europe before it changed to ‘Internet Marketing Bugle’ and then to ‘Digital Bugle’ which you can get free by joining our email updates and training. Working Hours Magazine started off as an offline publication but turned to serve both on and offline where, ultimately, it was online only.
Interestingly, there are still articles from the original version being found around the Internet even today. Martyn Brown used to go under the pen name of ‘Kinger’ and where his regular business column was published in a number of magazines around the world. His articles were even turned into a book which was available to buy and download.
Living and breathing the Internet, Martyn started to build websites for local businesses. The main platform today are WordPress websites due to the ease of use for clients and their reliability.
Hosting of virtual servers via Amazon’s AWS platform is the current venture, making Marketing Bugle’s service the fastest and most secure available to businesses.
Branching out from website building, Martyn’s business, Marketing Bugle, now runs online promotions, builds ‘Sales Funnels’, marketing videos, email marketing, webinar systems and much more. Preferring to work on a one-to-one basis with his clients, the success rate is very high and clients tend to stay with him for the long term. Martyn has said that those businesses that stay with him seem to get the best results from their investment into promoting their business. You do need to stick at it and keep things constant. That’s the secret of success. If you give up too soon, you lose your momentum and just end out blaming everyone but yourself.
Marketing Bugle with Martyn Brown have won several awards, right from small-time concerns to bigger national concerns and with, literally, hundreds of testimonials from happy clients (some of which can be viewed on this website) things just keep going from strength to strength.
Backed by a lifetime of marketing experience, it seems Martyn Brown had found his goal in life, and that is to support businesses online and get them hot new leads on a regular basis while keeping the wheels turning 24/7 using the latest automation but with a large dose of personal service … something that larger businesses are unable to offer but does, ultimately, make all the difference.
