ABOUT INVESTORS WALES

Investors in Wales are an important source of equity investment for the small business albeit start-ups seeking to grow, providing ‘smart needed capital’.

Alongside equity finance, Business Angels aka Investors can also bring business experience, strategic advice, and networking opportunities.

An “Investor” is not the same as a “Loan Company” or “Bank”, the “Investors” will take on an active role and monitor your growth.

Investors in Wales are vital for Welsh national, regional, and local financial ecosystems and economy to flourish.

Government funds are also different from Private Investors although typically make important contributions to local equity markets.

For example, the British Business Bank’s whose website consists of hyphens is taboo and not recommended in terms of SEO www.british-business-bank.co.uk recent Small Business Equity Tracker states that 58% of all announced equity deals in Wales in 2020 involved a government fund.

www.developmentbank.wales has its own £100m Regional Angels Programme, which is delivered through its commercial subsidiary, British Business Investments.

The British Business Bank first launched the Regional Angels Programme in October 2018 and has made eight portfolio investments, totalling £100m of commitments. It has raised over £25m into more than 250 businesses, including £1.4m through 12 deals across Wales, from Newport to Anglesey.

In terms of Investors, the Angel Investors Network may help raise funds through Angel Syndicates (multiple investors) or individual investors providing fertile ground to enable the angel finance environment to flourish.

DOMAIN NAME AND SEO

The Domain Names www.investors.wales and www.ukbusinessbanking.co.uk and dot com are for sale.

This domain could help any company attract more business through SEO and Lead Generation Strategies using the exact match searchable keywords.

This said the “Bank “Development Bank of Wales” has an Investor Programme, claiming to be the biggest Angel Network in Wales, which helps to connect experienced investors with Welsh businesses seeking private investment.

However, there is no stopping an entrepreneur such as founders James Badgett & Mike LebusAngel Investment Network to follow suit. Any business that can create a forum as I have done for the domain “www.ukbusinessbanking.co.uk” can also adopt a similar design.

“Development Bank Of Wales” is using a brandable long-tail domain name with the domain extension (.wales). The public searching for investors will type in the word “Investors” orInvestors Walesbefore typing “Development Bank” for the search terms. They may not necessarily think of a Bank as they may wish to steer clear for Bank Loans which can be off-putting to some people. A person searching for an “Investor” will type the words, “Investors”, before any other word or phrase.

THE VISION

Currently, we are affiliated with:

https://www.angelinvestmentnetwork.co.uk/network?ref=H0O281HM0Q

It all starts with a vision and because we sell domain names it is only fitting to add financing services to our business to help domain investors to secure funding. We are happy to publish pitches for businesses as this service is in the Beta stage and can be viewed here!

Angel Investment Network started small – with two childhood friends turning their network of 30 branches extending to 80 different countries, having 1,737,890 registered members, 294,473 investors and 1,443,428 entrepreneurs, this makes the largest Angel Investment Community in the world.

PITCH

1. Buy the domain name outright and develop the website yourself. (The domain is already generating traffic and has backlinks, with a valuation below).

2. Buy the domain and get “UK Website Designers” to develop it, market, and advertise it on Marketing and Advertising Strategies. (May consider leasing it on a monthly payment plan with the option to buy).

VALUATION

The search term Investors Wales has 81,800,000  search results and according to Google Analytics “Keyword Planner” for the search term “Investors” is between 10K and 100K searches per month at the most expensive bidding price of £9.25 per click.

So let’s just analyze this for a moment, if for example, you were paying for PPC advertising and you had 100K clicks per month at a cost of £9.25 your budget would be £925,000 per month multiplied by 12 months advertising would cost £11,100,000 in advertising but you also have to think not all impressions turn into clicks and that the click-through ratio is about 3% meaning only 3% of 100K impressions will click your AD which leaves now the equation 3% of 100K impressions = 3,000 clicks x by £9,25 = £27,750 per month in PPC advertising x 12 months advertising = £333,000.00 without the cost the management fee for the service.

Therefore the overall cost of Building a Website would include:

  1. Design & Development Fee
  2. SEO
  3. Marketing
  4. Advertising
  5. Content Writing

All these factors plus the fact that the perceived equity a website could generate from paid membership registrations, all equates to the final valuation.

FINAL NOTES

I once was asked to tender for a marketing role with the above-mentioned bank but was asked to pay a fee upfront by the agency for the tender of over £2,000, the company did not reveal the name of the bank but with a little digging I found out who they were.

Start-up’s Growth Funding

Start-up’s Growth Funding

I am curious how some people/businesses secure funding other than through traditional methods like going to the bank with cap in hand and a business plan.

Obviously there are venture capitalists and private equity firms but how do you get someone to believe in you enough that they will part with millions of pounds or dollars into your business.

From personal experience I know what options I could try to get funding but that would mean me having to share my business, which I do not want to as I have been burnt badly in the past and “once bitten twice shy as they say”.

So my point is how can these companies have secured funding when looking at their domain names I would not touch with a barge pole.

api.video

ada.support

mojo.vision

celcius.network

infra.market

compound.finance

elodie.games

cellworks.life

drink.haus

3s.money

For starters what about GEO Targeting and GEO Fencing did no one tell them about how they will generate visitors:

https://ukdomainbrokers.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk/?p=1217

Surely there has to be more to this than meets the eye.

I am curious as the only way anyone would invest is if there was a product or service that had perceived equity, which most probably these companies have and that they did not spend silly money on these domain names.

I know if I personally had secured funding I would most probably prosper faster but I choose to be careful as I do not want to be dependant on anyone.

I have grown my business to offer website design, development, domain brokering, SEO & Marketing which is just a few of my services.

So I have no intention of borrowing money or having business partners, been there done that got the t-shirt.

Instead I will just plod on knowing one day I will be able to travel round the world and will be recognised for not having handouts but achieving everything on my own.

I am now concentrating on my personal branding as the more people that know about me the more I can gain people’s trust.

The key to success is personal branding if you can show people you are worth investing in they will.

Me telling the world to look at me!

If however there is a ‘Secret Santa‘ wishing to help with a life changing donation I would not say no unless there were terms and conditions in which I would most definitely decline.

Another person that I read about today was Charlie Mullins OBE, personally I had not heard of him before but have found out since he came from nothing and built a plumbing business empire and is now worth £70 Million.

https://londonlovesbusiness.com/meet-the-entrepreneur-charlie-mullins-obe/

So one has to ask one self how did someone how started out working from his two bedroom apartment become so rich that he was knighted?

I did a little digging, as well as the plumbing business he also buys and sells private number plates. Private number plates are just as unique as domain names and there has been a fair few investors that have made it big and have become millionaires selling high quality one word dot coms. So his plumbing business is backed by his number plate business and because of his personal branding he can now roll in the cash. Would I want him to be in line for the next London Mayor, propbably not just as I would not expect any top Domain investor becoming the next President.

Anyone wishing to invest in the domain names which I have on our marketplace is more than welcome to contact me and we can devise a business plan to develop the domain name into equity.
