Results Proven Business Mentor UK

Business Mentor using proven strategies to increase a clients business by 233.7% in just 23-days!

Best Business Mentor


I know - A big and extraordinary claim but a true claim all the same.

... I build, create, save, increase or turnaround businesses just like yours using only proven, fast-track, effect, momentum driven business building strategies. I will probably do and advise the opposite to what you are being told by 'marketing experts' right now because most of what you're being told (social media etc) just doesnt deliver the results my clients and clients like you really want and deserve.

If you have a problem I will fix it. If you have a goal I will help you hit it. If you demand more I will give you more than you can demand. I have a track record most would experts would die for. Like conversions of 63% in print, 49.2% online and work against the grain of almost everything most 'marketing experts' will tell you to do. I get it ... your business works or it fails. With me at your side it will work unless that just isn't possible.

Now this is a big page. You have two options: The first is, don't waste time reading it all and let's talk right now. The second is, read the full page and hope I am free to help you once you get to the end of it. My contact details for business mentoring are below.

The answer is simple … working with an expereinced, results driven, trac-record based BUSINESS MENTOR because a GOOD MENTOR will have the experience that you just don’t have and even your in-house experts might not have.

Over Three Decades Business Mentoring, Building, Growing, Playing, and Creating Real Businesses

First, let me explain why you need a business mentor if you handle your own marketing or have under performing marketing.

There is a problem with trying to do everything yourself and it is this and you might have to read this twice.

  1. You are not an expert at everything.
  2. You are NOT an expert at everything.

When I started my first real businesses it was 1985. Then in 1989 I opened my first brick and mortar business (hair salons). By 1991 I was desperate for more success and sales. When I say desperate I mean I was about to have the doors closed by the Inland Revenue.

The pressure led me into something outside my hairdressing businesses. This was something that was simply called – writing adverts - at the time.



This is one of the very fist Ads I wrote and created going all the way back to 1989. It was so successful I ran the same Advert until I sold my salon businesses in 2003

I wrote Ads based on what I thought looked good. I had no education and no training I just fumbled around.

Some worked. Some sucked. I survived.

My approach and strategy then was simple...  try everything and hope it works. This taught me a lot of lessons. I found out what worked and why it worked. I discovered that business and marketing is actually a real science. You run tests and measure the results. 

The longer I ran my businesses the better I got. I got so good in fact clients whose hair I cut started asking my business mentor advice. That advice led me to actually running campaigns for clients. That eventually led me to sell my salons and taking on a role of a direct response marketing consultant for anyone that asked me.

More Than Expert As You'll See ...

But, before then, in my salons, I was one of the biggest sellers of hair colour in the UK. While the majority of salons were selling just 3-5% colour I was selling between 60/70% colour. All the companies knew what I was up to and wanted my account. We were selling literally tons of colour!

Every kind of marketing strategy you can think of a more I was doing it. Pre-web of course but I had become more than famous for my massive amounts of direct mail. I did everything on a big scale for the small town I was in.

Every day without fail I had a list of around TWENTY tactics for marketing that had to be carried out - DAILY!

This led me to be invited to speak to marketing experts (me a hairdresser). Getting invites to speak in huge corporations and share my knowledge. (I’m still just Alan the hairdresser at this point).

Then I got invited to travel to Latvia of all places to be the keynote a conference of 1000 businesses on marketing. Pretty incredible for a hairdresser.


Not only was I good at hairdressing I had become very good at direct marketing and the art of business and mentoring businesses just like yours.

  • This led to me mentoring into selling £1.2 million in cars for one of my salon clients
  • Selling over £800,000 in cosmetic products for another client through direct mail
  • Sell tons of software for an accounting firm again using direct mail

And so many other stories that when I look back sound pretty hard to believe yet they are as true as I am sitting here writing to you. I had created marketing and bespoke business systems for everything and the results had built me a huge home and given me everything and more.

Now here’s something I found out about business and marketing and it is what you should know ...

I am the lucky one. I know it isn’t genes but I do know I was a business man doing his own marketing. I found the way and discovered I was very good at bringing in results. I bought books and studied the subject day and night. More important and studied every result, worked out the way buyers were thinking, how the purchase would make them feel and what they wanted in exchange for parting with their cash.

It's rarely what most businesses think in fact usually quite the opposite.

That took a lot of learning, trying and endlessly pursuing what was working. If it failed – no one got fed! So it had to work for me.

Marketing IS Part of Your Successful Business Machine - Not a One Off Event ... !

Now there have been huge changes in the past few years I have seen momentous changes in business and marketing and the changes are this. The marketing industry gave away all of its insider information. At one time what we knew was as good as secret. They sold the 'how to do' things, the how to write things and the how to do anything.

So you know more than I ever knew. The information available right now to marketing any business is massive.

Yet the reality I see ALL of the time is this reality…

99% of businesses just like yours have tried their own marketing and still cannot get a result they are happy with.

Here’s’ the reason and it isn’t as big as you might think.

The reason is this are you ready?

It’s the smallest details you just cannot see yourself.

I can hardly believe THE CHANGE in not only my business but in ME. Alan’s strategies and advice with guidance took my business to a 53.4% rise in one month, 116% rise in one year. Anyone thinking of working with Alan I would say go for it. There’s absolutely no question

So, although you know a lot about marketing the real problem is you don’t know the finer details about the mind of your buyer and what it takes for that mind to buy from you.

Although you feel you can write copy, create adverts it’s the finer detail that is killing your response.

I can’t even explain what the detail is.

  • It's that magical touch that takes failure in marketing to succeed.It’s the stuff that I can see in a minute of speaking with and looking at any campaign.
  • It’s the stuff that I can see in a minute of speaking with and looking at any campaign.
  • It’s the detail that took the failure above to 49.2%
  • It’s also the detail that took no response to 116% increase in one business
  • It’s the details that took one small printing firm to sales of £42,400 in a single email in under 12-hours after I worked on his campaign.

The magic. The tactics. The strategy. And of course avoiding the hype, the trends, the fads and focusing on doing what really works.

"WORKING WITH ALAN ... The results are UNREAL…"

Hi Alan


Well, what can I say!!

We had a salon, a team,  a business – Or so we thought!!



Rich and Steph, Sage Hair Wickham

We were taking on average £2-3000 a week, it covered the bills… just! We spent A LOT of nights worrying about how we were going to pay the staff if there was money in the bank to pay the product company…. We didn’t take a wage, we didn’t have any spare cash, we thought we were doing everything like we should but we were still not seeing any increase….until we called Alan.

We spent many more nights wondering whether we should take the risk, it was a lot of money that we certainly didn’t have.

We made the jump… and it was honestly THE BEST THING WE HAVE EVER DONE!!!! Alan ripped our business apart and showed us it in a completely different light….

In 4 weeks he has refocused our attention on stabilising and building a BUSINESS. He has almost DOUBLED our turnover in 4 weeks…….at the quietest time of the year!! He has opened our eyes to everything about our business and what we were doing and has flipped it on its head!!

It’s INTENSE, ITS HARD WORK AND ITS EXTREME!! But we are ABSOLUTELY LOVING IT!!  The results are UNREAL….. We are 4 weeks in…..we cant for the results after 12.

Alan is fantastic, he is supportive, encouraging and he knows what he’s talking about! He is ALWAYS at the end of the phone, he keeps us focused and he gets results……it’s  just simply amazing!

I can’t wait to write about our journey after the next 4 weeks!
