Dominic Potts – The exciting journey from IT professional to Eazi-Apps superstar
Prior to becoming an Eazi-Apps partner in March 2020, Dominic was an IT Services director for a leading Satellite Communications company. He explained: “My role had been made redundant and that gave me a great opportunity to rethink what I wanted from life and how I wanted to work.” This life changing event was influential for Dominic, and caused him to search for the perfect business opportunity for his new found outlook on life.
When asked about his experience before becoming an Eazi-Apps partner, Dominic continued: “I was in IT for over 30 years so had a vast wealth of technical experience and had run my own IT consultancy for about 10 years, so understood the mechanics of running a business. I’d also built a few websites for myself and for friends.”
When asked if the Eazi-Apps opportunity was good for anyone without experience, Dominic responded with: “Definitely, the applications, the initial training, the training academy and on-going support create an excellent basis for someone wanting to start their own business. But like anything your success will depend greatly on the effort you put in.”
He went on to explain the advantages of the award-winning training, support and technology Eazi-Apps provides, saying: The initial training course was very good. My training was pre-pandemic and I was glad I made the trip to Leicester and attended the training on site. The training gave me a good foundation to start building sites and apps. I had the confidence to get home and start “playing” But, whilst the training was excellent the ongoing support is what really makes the difference. The support team really know the applications and if you get stuck, they’re there ready to help you.
The technology to build sites, apps and delivering SEO for clients is very good. The site builder has an easy entry level, as does the App builder. However, like any tool the more you use it and understand its capabilities, the more proficient and skilful you become and you end up creating stunning websites, amazing apps and can achieve noticeable improvements for your clients’ search rankings with SEO. The other point worth noting is this technology is continually being developed and new features added.”
When asked about an example of one of his own happy clients, he said “Yes, I’ve a client who I built a new website for. The quality and professional nature of this new site over their old “homemade” site increased click through and they directly attribute this to the growth and success of their business.”
Finally, Dominic went on to talk about how Eazi-Business helped to grow his business and whether he would recommend the service to others: “I should have been a comic with my timing! I launched my business days before the first lockdown. The Eazi-Apps team were there and helped me get through that hurdle. The training courses on the Academy have helped me with networking and sales. The support team really are the stars of Eazi-Business. They’ve worked with me on client requirements and to provide solutions to design challenges.
Anyone looking to join should talk to Eazi-Business and to partners. Make a proper business plan, understand that Eazi-Business makes starting a business quicker and simpler, it’s still a business and will require sweat and determination to make it succeed.”Coming from a technology background like Dominic is great, but not essential. Full training is given and ongoing support provided so as long as you have the desire to succeed, Eazi-Business is the perfect choice for entrepreneurs.
