Andy is the founder of WeDoTraining.com. The site helps you find the right health and safety related training course all over the United Kingdom.
1.What gave you the idea to start WeDoTraining.com? Share your story.
Training in all workplaces creates a better experience, a safer environment and more highly skilled workers. We wanted to create a business that provides the highest quality in the training sphere and maintains the highest standards across the array of courses we provide. There are a lot of lacklustre trainers out there, but we at WeDo like to target ourselves as the best.
2. How have you gone about getting people to sign up for the courses / certification? What’s working for you?
We do a lot of local advertising to try to get businesses to sign up. We’ve also pushed ourselves in trade and industry magazines – which we find works well too.
3. What has been the biggest challenge for wedotraining.com? How are you overcoming (or planning on overcoming) it?
Competition can be quite tough in this industry particularly in the online space. As we mentioned there are plenty of trainers out there, though we like to see ourselves as one offering the highest quality. Many others are longer established and therefore have a larger web presence. It’s something we’re trying to improve upon and grow.
4. How did you get your very first customer?
An advert in one of the trade magazines.
5.What are your future plans for 2014 and beyond?
Plans for 2014 include improving our web presence in the search engine results and winning more customers we can offer our high quality of training to.
