For the last seven years I've specialised in helping business owners, marketing managers and entrepreneurs sell more products and services, through the convergence of Social Media, Digital Marketing and eCommerce. Delivering dynamic and engaging webinars, workshops and seminars on Digital Marketing & eCommerce and Business Growth through Investment and funding.
My entrepreneurial skills started after receiving a grant from the Prince's Trust at 22 for a music and clothing European Distribution Company. Focusing on business growth I became the director of a global stationary and accessory business working with Disney and Nickelodeon, growing a licensee from $5Million to $30Million selling to over 40 countries in a 5-year period achieving $1 Million sales in 1 month.
Winning various industry awards and co-founding two IT companies since 2010. The first being an eCommerce platform, getting £150,000 Seed Investment via "SEIS", valuing the business at £1M in less than two years. The second with a “Start Up Loan”, we've built an online learning platform, teaching people how to setup and use Social Networks for their business.
I have over 20 years' experience in marketing and selling products and services globally and seven years in social media and ecommerce. I’m a member of the Professional Speaking Association, a renowned international keynote speaker, trainer and coach, helping 1,000’s of Start Ups and SME's grow using Social Media, Digital Marketing and eCommerce.
As a 1-1 business coach and mentor, I help SME’s build their digital footprint and increase sales by up to 500%, I have a passion for upskilling entrepreneurs and regularly write from various digital marketing and business magazines reaching 100,000's of readers. I've also written three eBooks on Sales, International Growth and Social Media for Business, all of which can be found on Amazon.
Thank you for your kind words and yes I 100% agree and for the right business and personality of the bsuiness owner, facebook is a goldmine, if done correctly.
Have a fun weekend,
Thanks for your comments and I fully take them onboard, as I write many artciles and each article has a focus.
Have a great weekend, Warren
Alexandra, I agree and that's why SnapChat will be a winner in 2014, along with Vine
6 out of 7's not bad Dilum, but you'll have to take that up with Facebook :-)
I totally agree Shaylee, for companies that embrace the importance of engaging with their customer, will be the ones that grow significantly over the next few years.
I have personally picked up more specific "web" information from Mention, that Google Alerts and in realtime, not a few days later.
When I say "Mute" it's in the context of allowing you to target specific keywords for your micro niche market, rather than being generic with you listening, and yes listening is only part of the process.
I have a LEAD startegy, Listen, Experiment, Apply, Develop.
Thanks for commenting.
I think with any "listening" tool, is understanding it's strengths. I have not found 1 tool that does everything well.
I must say I have not found it crashing for me but on iOS my mentions go into spam, which is very frustration.
