Method in the madness? Did the Dragons miss out not getting an investment in Ling “I’m just a genius at marketing” Valentine?
Ling of LINGsCARS will patiently explain to a slow and reluctant audience, how to make online customers happy using subliminal mind-torture and the power of swearing. Regularly grasping victory from the jaws of poor coding, flashing gifs and defeat, Ling intends to describe how she squeezes every last cent out of her customers and how she takes complaining web visitors by the neck and rams them through her car leasing sausage machine. All while making them very happy. This presentation does not include any Thai prostitutes, or dogs playing poker. You won’t understand a word of it. Chopsticks are optional.
About the speakers
Ling Valentine, Boss, LINGsCARS.com
Ling Valentine is the founder and boss of the UK's favourite car leasing website, LINGsCARS.com. Ling appeared on Dragon’s Den, where she pitched her idea of creating psychedelically bright car leasing website that ignores all the "rules”. She has grown her new car leasing website and in 2012, Ling’s business is set to move around £50,000,000 of new cars, earning £480,000 of gross profit without laying out a penny on buying any car stock.
She was born in Chengdu, China and moved to the UK in 1997. Her website is either loved or hated and it gets massive traffic without any paid for advertising or adwords. Yet she says many of her customers are top professionals, including CEO’s and British MP’s.
Ling's motto is "I am Chinese, not Catholic - I can't do bloody miracles."
