New Year – Time to Think About A Boost To YOUR Career

As Christmas is fast approaching and many of us reflect on the past year our thoughts begin shift to the future – How can we improve ourselves – Our focus is on planning, setting goals not just in business but across the areas of our life – what will 2019 hold for you?

We have come up with a few questions to ask yourself to help you find your focus and realise your dreams and goals for the coming year;

  1. Do you feel you are showcasing the best version of you?
  2. Are you earning what you are worth?
  3. Is you business generating the profits you deserve?
  4. Are you efficient but yet effective in your role?
  5. Do you have the skill set to be the best at what you do?
  6. Are you a critical driver in your business?
  7. Does your CV sell you?
  8. Are you a leading edge, innovator in your team?
  9. Are you a reveneue generator through your efforts?
  10. Do you love what you do?

In January an article in the Independent said almost half of UK employees still expect to be looking for a new job in 2018. I wonder what 2019 stats will be!

I love my job but as a business owner I design my role so it would be my fault if I didn’t!

It is easy to get caught up in being too busy so I write a list every week with anything I didn’t enjoy and delegate that then take on something new in exchange.

I block out time in my diary and often my best work ideas are created when I have this headspace.

I set a goals across the 8 key areas of my life each month

  1. well-being
  2. family
  3. work
  4. friends
  5. relationships
  6. adventure
  7. money
  8. home

So last Christmas my partner and I agreed to create a list of 12 things we’d love to do in 2018 – we chose 1 a month – creating memories!

My 3 new swaps are;

  1. I hate 5am starts so next year I’m travelling the night before.
  2. January is a bit lack lustre so going to Mexico
  3. I’m going to share a tip each week for a year that I’ve used in my journey as an entrepreneur entitled ‘52 to improve you’ launches December

52toimproveyou What are your tips to loving life? Or goals for 2019?

I just wanted to share a NEW Webinar I recorded – Developing YOUR Digital Skills to Improve YOUR Marketing Results

FREE to Attend – Refreshments Included

So as I embark on my 14th year in business I look back on what has contributed towards my success and that of my businesses.

As an entrepreneur and owner of an established digital academy and agency I have a very specific interest in how and why a business succeeds.

One of the biggest reasons a business is not reaching its full potential is insufficient marketing or cost-effective marketing.

I realised though that back when I started one of my businesses in 2000 I would have invested someone to actually guide me through marketing my business online. There were no accredited courses or certified qualifications back then so I had to learn through trial and error.

I cannot even put a figure on the amount of time I spent researching, self-teaching myself and wasting money on attending pointless courses where they taught theory and no actual real-world business marketing.

Fast-forward to today and I am a multi-award-winning Digital Marketing Speaker, Author & Trainer and happy to say Founder of a world-leading Digital Marketing Agency & Academy.

I will share directly with you tangible tips, trends, techniques, and tools to maximise your digital marketing profits to scale and grow your business.

Our trademarked Digital Marketing Mandate Model is our award-winning Solution Framework of The Year – It is like a road map that breaks down the ways to market your business online and the strategy, tactics and actions you need to achieve digital marketing success.

We will discuss ways of ramping up your online visibility and presence and methods of reaching and attracting your target audience, driving more leads and using content marketing to turn more of those enquiries into profitable customers.

We will also cover key strategies around getting your customers to be your biggest advocates and ultimately using Marketing as a Revenue Generator!

I will be hosting the event and the team and I can’t wait to welcome you on the day – I am passionate about Digital Marketing and have over 20 years experience – I am ranked #1 by LinkedIn globally in my industry and have just been awarded Best Female Speaker at The Professional Speaker Awards.


9am – Registration & my team will be on hand with refreshments (FREE Tea, Coffee & Water)

  6. Social Selling
  7. Measuring Marketing Results
  8. Digital Marketing Strategy

There will be Q & A Sessions throughout

12pm – Midday Event Closes (You must be able to attend the entire half-day as we cover the steps in a particular sequence so it is crucial you stay to the end).

Who is it for?

Exclusively for marketers, decision makers, entrepreneurs and business owners of start-up to established businesses.

Who will host the Event?

I will be hosting the day and sharing my knowledge experience direct with you – I am Dawn McGruer FRSA FCIM MIoD – I am proud to say I am now an award winning speaker, consultant, trainer and digital practitioner and entrepreneur.

I have a work life balance I strived for years to achieve and take about 10 weeks holiday a year, drive the car I want, live mortgage and debt free and travel around the world for business and pleasure….Sounds nice doesn’t it but believe me I could have been doing this a lot quicker if I had access to the sort of resources available in our Digital Academy.

As I am on the cusp of turning 40 I know I have achieved a lot…but it has come at a sacrifice…late nights, travelling and being away from my family for long periods but I got there and the great news is you can reach whatever your goal is much quicker than I did.

My second book is due out later this year and….and here some quick facts about me

  • Founder of Business Consort
  • Digital Strategist
  • Keynote Speaker
  • Published Author
  • CIM Qualified Tutor
  • 20 years’ experience
  • Over 5 million subscribers
  • Ranked Top 1% globally on LinkedIn

  • Lifetime Fellow of Royal Society – RSA
  • Awarded CIM Fellowship

Why should I attend?

So in short if you are looking to start or grow your business then the ‘8 Powerful Ways to Market Your Business Online’ is great starting point.

Yes I turned my passion into profit but ultimately we only live once so I want to enjoy my time on this planet and wake up feeling invigorated not dreading the day ahead.

When you can reach your audience, generate an abundance of leads and convert them into profitable customers with less time, effort and money that is when the magic happens – I will show you the true meaning of productivity equalling profit.

Please don’t be mistaken that this a half-day networking opportunity as this event has been designed to push you towards achieving your goals and I will be challenging the way you think and providing a new perspective on what success means to you and what that looks like.

You will leave charged and ready to drive your business forward.

How to dominate search engines and generate web traffic

It’s a phrase that has become second nature to us – whether we’re unsure of a spelling, looking for a restaurant to try or hunting for a new job, ‘google it’ is our go-to solution.


For businesses, appearing in search engines is one of the most sought-after goals; regardless of the sector in which you work, prospective clients or customers will often turn to one for answers, using them as a route to your website. And, with 3.5 billion searches made daily across the world and reaching 90 per cent of the internet’s audience, Google is the most popular platform.


Of course, that’s not to say that other engines such as Yahoo and Bing should be discounted, but it’s important to remember that if you’re optimising your site for Google, it’s likely to appear on other search engines, too.


However, simply appearing in a search isn’t enough – page one is where you should be aiming for and as high as possible. If you’re not on the first page, you are most certainly going to lose out to competitors, meaning valuable business – and profit – is being missed.


So, how can we ensure we dominate the search engines, drive traffic to your website and boost that all-important bottom line?


  • Put it on film

It’s important to bear in mind that Google is essentially a service provider and it needs to give its users what they want – which is quality content. While written content is obviously vital, embedding videos into your site will mean you’re four times more likely to appear on page one. Around 80 per cent of businesses currently use video as a marketing tool – up from 63 per cent in 2017 – so, if you have not yet considered some form of video marketing strategy, you are behind the curve and should consider how video can be incorporated into your plans.


But, it shouldn’t stop there. The key is to then think about how to optimise the videos so that they’re shareable and linkable – you need to be producing videos that encourage people to share on social media from your site and that publishers want to link back to.


The video file name plays a role, too – before you upload the video, change the name into something that’s readable and make sense, including a keyword. While viewers won’t see this, search engines will and will reward you with a higher ranking. Additionally, ensure you include a keyword in the video description and in any annotations.


  • Where’s the demand?

As we learned on day two of the 30-Day Digital Challenge, fresh blog content on your website plays a key role in keeping you high in SEO rankings. But, uploading a quick insight piece here and a news review there simply won’t cut it, unfortunately.


Instead, you need to be producing content that people want to read and that they’re demanding. A good way of finding this out is by using a tool called Google Trends, which allows you to see what topics people are searching for and what key words they’re typing into search engines. From this, you can decide where to place your focus and think about which themes need to be prioritised.


Google keyword planner can help you see how various key word rank and can then assist you when drafting blog content so that you’re including those key words that people are looking for.


  • Go mobile

Mobile-friendly websites dominate the top spots on search engine results pages (SERPs), which makes complete sense when we consider that almost 60 per cent of online searches are now being made via mobile devices. It’s therefore essential that your site is optimised for mobile usage, especially due to the fact that Google penalises sites that are not mobile-friendly.

The search giant wants to give mobile users the best experience possible so they want to be directing people to pages that they can easily read on their smartphone without having to zoom in and out as they navigate a site.


As such, use a free tool from Google to rate your site’s mobile friendliness and get tips on how to fix any issues. You can then take the necessary steps to solve the problem.


  • Link up

In terms of SEO, you will have heard the phrase ‘backlinks’ being discussed. Backlinks are directed to your site – the higher your number of backlinks, the higher your popularity or importance is and, consequently, the more traffic is directed to your site.


As we’ve said, you need to prove to the search engine that your website is relevant and users are reading and sharing the content – which can be done through linking other websites to you. Ensure that link building is done to the wider site and to specific landing pages, not just to the homepage, as this will demonstrate that your entire site content is reliable.


Search marketing needn’t be a ‘dark art’ from which you steer clear – as we’ve seen, there are key rules to follow and important changes to implement if you’re to truly dominate search engines. Want to know more? Take a look at our portfolio of digital marketing courses.

How to measure marketing success

Measurement is what enables you to adapt, optimise and improve your campaigns, so it’s an essential part of any marketing strategy. Metrics will give you an idea of what doesn’t work so your efforts and investment can be put into what does.


The key to any business activity, particularly from a marketing standpoint, is to drive a return on investment and amplify your business. Marketing can be one of the biggest investments that your brand or business makes, so ensuring that campaigns meet the overall objectives is vital. Here’s how to ensure you’re measuring successfully…


Back to basics

Begin by deciding how often you will collect and analyse your data – as a minimum, this should be a monthly exercise, but you might opt to do it weekly or even daily, depending on your campaign length and objectives. Then, figure out how you will store and track the data, which could be something as simple as a spreadsheet. Populate this with your agreed marketing goals, KPIs, an outline plan and define responsibilities among your team, if necessary.


The specific KPIs you track could include a number of goals and objectives, from brand awareness and engagement, to lead generation and sales.

Start tracking

One of the best places to start is with Google Analytics. You can set up a free account and install the tracking code for your website, which will allow you to monitor your website and aggregate a huge amount of data to analyse. It will go as granular as telling you how individual pieces of content, such as blogs or videos, are performing and help you to look for new insights.


Remember, tracking success can be as simple or as complicated as you like, as long as the measurements will support your overall goals and business performance. Results and online metrics are often coupled with unfamiliar terms and jargon, so familiarise yourself with the phrases that you may come across first.


Navigate the metrics

There are hundreds of metrics to choose from when analysing the success of your marketing, and they all measure something of value. These include rankings, downloads, reach, engagements, subscribers, traffic – and the list goes on. The key is to ensure the metrics that you measure are relative to what the campaign is trying to achieve, link it back to your objectives and demonstrate if it has provided significant ROI.


Here is an example of just some of the metrics to use when measuring and demonstrating the success of your marketing efforts:


Website traffic, leads and opportunities

Once you’ve signed up for Google Analytics, it will help you to track and measure your website’s traffic. Follow GA’s instructions to find your unique tracking code and apply it to all of your web pages. After a few days, you can check the report under website metrics within the platform – it will tell you how many unique visitors you’ve had, where your site visitors have clicked and where they have come from.


Search engine traffic

Search engine traffic is the amount of traffic being referred to your site through search engines like Google or Bing. This data is important as it gives you an indication of how effective you are at content optimisation and it’s particularly helpful if you are using paid services like pay-per-click.


Conversion rate

Conversions are essential metrics when calculating ROI. Simple conversion goals can be set up using your Google Analytics account and measured each time a user takes action on your website. Conversion goals could be purchases, data input or even number of site pages viewed by a website visitor.




Social engagement and reach

Social media is a key element of a successful brand marketing strategy, so it’s important to measure the metrics available within your chosen platforms, too. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram all have built-in insight tools that allow you to track follower growth, as well as reactions, engagement and reach of all your posts. They will also allow you to delve into the demographics of your audience and find out who is responding to your content.
