I had been fascinated with the potential of the
Internet as it was improving dramatically once the search engines were
created. The biggest problem was how to be found with millions of
new websites constantly being added.
So rightly, or wrongly unlike
all the others, where the website is devoted to only one subject, I decided to make mine show all my
interests. This way if found for 'Jensen classic cars' for example,
the chances are that people will look at some of my other items.
So gradually I added everything I could.
I included my
'Special Effects' photography called 'The Magic Lantern', 'PhotoBackings 100',
'Jensen Classic Cars', 'The History of Jacey Cinemas, 'The Cohen
Collection' of our Asian antiques and more.
Later after I retired and we were living in Marbella and Winterthur I
added the 'Painting with Light' limited edition prints section, more
about this later.
This meant that the search engines had me listed for quite a lot of subjects.
I also made another website for 'The Cohen Collection' but this one requires a payment of only 25 Euros
for unlimited access to view the collection (most auction catalogues cost a
lot more than this) and I now have a good number of
collectors and dealers signed up to it from all over the world.
Having completed these websites, I added
some articles that I had written for
Ezinearticles.com for free publication by other
websites providing they included a link back to mine. Most of them
have been published in a lot of other websites and always with the links
problem, is that since I created my websites so long ago, there have been many changes to the
way websites are now written, mainly because of the new mobile smart phones.
Websites had to be redesigned to be user friendly on such small screens
and a new HTML
language was created.
I confess that I have not learnt how to use
it and instead I have managed to make some changes that at least seem to
make it work on phones. But to change everything is a very big
task as I have so many pages.
Moayedi - Sun Tan Promotions
Together with our close friend Paris (when young he was a very good-looking Omar Sharif-lookalike), we
formed a partnership and ran a sunbed business, providing sunbeds to
various sports clubs. Our scheme was to offer to install superior
sunbeds with a coin operated meter free of charge, thus providing the
clubs with an added facility, and then to share the takings with the
clubs at an agreed percentage (aiming at about 25% to the club).
We then bought several sunbeds (at a reduced purchase price for
quantity) once we had some clubs signed up for them.
This was successful for a year, or two, but then there was some bad
press about a Cancer scare and we quickly sold everything, most of them
were sold to the same clubs for nearly our original purchase price!
