5 Secrets Of High-Converting Websites with Greg Merrilees of Studio 1 Design | #581

I’m a little sad. Sad at just how many business owners I speak to who are frustrated by their website that cost them a fortune, but isn’t producing any return on their investment. So, I asked one of Australia’s leading website producers how to design a website to boost conversions in any niche. It’s episode 581 (promising big returns) of The (12 year-old, award-winning) Small Business Big Marketing podcast.


A little more about Studio 1 Design’s Greg Merrilees …


Greg is passionate about creating really, really, really good-looking websites that (wait for it) … actually get great results for their clients. Results like more sales, more enquiry, large lists of prospects to have ongoing communication with.

You know, results that grow businesses!

Website creators Studio 1 Designs has custom designed over 2,000 websites for a range of brands including BulletProof Coffee and Effortless Swimming, plus some high profile online marketers including: Perry Marshall, Chris Ducker & Jordan Harbinger.

Plus he’s putting the finishing touches on my new website.

They even designed a website for Yoda from Star Wars!! Well that’s almost true! They designed one for Frank Oz, the original voice of Yoda, Miss Piggy & other Muppets characters. 

Greg starts off by explaining his obsession with websites …
