Mike was originally from a financial services background and specialised in property investment. Mike was one of the very first people to realise the massive potential of the Internet for generating enquiries and new business for companies and very quickly built up a solid business and reputation within the overseas property market.
All of his sales leads were generated via the Internet using tried and tested online marketing techniques.
As a result of this success other property companies and businesses sought help for their Internet marketing and Artemis Internet Marketing was formed back in 2003.
Below is a genuine testimonial from a client we have worked with for many years.
“Mike Knivett is one of our most prolific lead generators in Europe, his vast network of sites mean he supplies us with quality enquiries everyday and all are people who have a genuine need for our service and products, without Mike my sales figures would be much lower and I recommend his web knowledge and business skills to anyone.” Steve Tiley, Moneycorp
