    G'day everyone,

    My name is Stephen Handley.

    For all those who want to know my complete history, there's plenty to be found on LinkedIn, Facebook, so I won't bore you here.

    In brief I my career has been split between the IT and Financial Services industries. Over the past 12 months I've developed a number of sites dedicated to the direct life insurance market.

    Look forward to getting to know you all.

    Cheers
    Stephen

    G'day Neddy,

    Code:
    www.miplan.com.au
    is the main site.

    Along with a host of lead generation domains that take advantage of a quote "widget" I've built for affiliate marketers

    Cheers
    Stephen

    G'day Shane,

    It was only a matter of time. :)

    Yes all well. The new miPlan updates are finally online and the traffic is slowly building.

    Cheers

    Nice site Stephen. :)

    And by the way, you can now do signature links and post in marketplace (3 posts to qualify).

    Cheers, Ned

    Have a look at the bottom of Shane's post for an example. You can post a link to your site or sites.

    Go to UserCP on the Nav Bar above; settings and options; edit signature.

    Cheers, Ned

    Hi Stephen,

    You just missed LifeInsuranceQuotes.net.au which dropped over the weekend... might have been of interest.

    Nice site you have though!

    Cheers

    David

    Yep. Saw LIQ.net.au. I'm actually surprised the owner let it lapse.

    How much did it go for in the end?

    My SEO team are not fans of the .net domains. And I already have a number of other .com.au domains I'm developing.

    Cheers
    Stephen

    P.S. Hopefully my signature works ... the preview didn't give me confidence :)

    P.P.S No didn't work. Obviously images can't be imbedded?

    You can do an image signature. You just need to watch size. And click on the box that says "insert image"

    I can see the insert image in the thread post dialog box. But not in the Signature dialog box.

    Not a big deal.

    Wow - I know .au values have been booming over the last couple of years but that's huge!
