Our Story – Business Consort Digital & Social Media Academy from 2000 to now

  • I started Aurora Marketing in 2000 – Digital agency running virtual business partner programme for those with no marketing department or budget for consultancy fees.
  • My background was programming and IT techie – it was a good job as coding helped me when digital tools didn't exist 17 years ago
  • Developed an early social network for a large North West Business Exhibition –  more like an online rotadex – and after the exhibition grew to 50K subscribers
  • So in 2005 we became Business Consort and we decided to do cocktail party style networking events for business growth and high net worth businesses hosted in Aston Martin, Ferrari and Bentley showrooms as well as tours of Bentley factory and diamond auction at Mottram hall – we also produced a magazine called Mingle.
  • As digital agency and networking events we evolved the social network to encompass a panel of experts we then started hosting seminars on digital marketing and social media.
  • I was awarded Fellowship from the RSA – The Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures & Commerce – Recognition of expertise in social media marketing & work to raise awareness of the advantages of social media to business owners.
  • In 2013 we became a training academy and accredited as a study centre by Chartered institute of marketing – All courses accredited under the CIM CPD programme
  • Digital Marketing Institute authorised partner since 2016. 
  • In 2017 we are a Chartered Institute of Marketing accredited study centre of excellence – we have been awarded 9 x commendations to date from the CIM to date for achieving outstanding results achieved for digital qualifications – digital marketing diploma – as we have a 99% rate
  • Reach 20K students trained and certified from 2005 to now – On average we train about 3500 students a year
  • We are growing fast so have already recruited a new team member in March and now we need another 4 people to join us
  • A 100% year on year growth means we are also launching some new and exciting courses later this year and in 2018
  • This year we have already launched 5 NEW Digital Marketing Qualifications – Meaning we now offer 6 digital qualifications to suit beginners through to skilled professionals
  • As head trainer I am central to content creation due to the fact I am a digital consultant, speaker & practitioner with over 17 years’ experience
  • I have almost 20K direct connections on LinkedIn and would love to welcome you to my network if we haven't already connected!

Mission & vision: Bridging the digital skills gap – ensuring skills are present for business marketing with a key emphasis on maximising return on investment for their digital efforts. As digital is so fast paced and ever evolving I feel it’s important to be a practitioner to keep abreast of new tools, insights and trends but it’s only possible to keep up to date because digital is a passion not a job.

There are many talented marketers and business leaders who simply aren’t investing time or budget to develop digital marketing skills, knowledge, and capacity.

The temptation is to hire someone who ‘does social’ or outsource your content production, SEO or PPC. But without that strategic oversight, purpose and a genuinely integrated approach to your marketing and sales, your business will lose out.

Our mission and vision whether you’re just starting out in digital marketing, a senior level marketer, or CEO, training from Business Consort ensures your business gain the right knowledge, strategy, planning, tactics and tools.

Our CIM accredited training programmes can be studied online, face to face or through in company training.

Executive PA to Director (Cheshire Based)

£17 per hour (25-30 hours a week) flexible working hours available – home based!

Behind every company director you'll find an organised, efficient personal assistant.

This role is extremely varied and would suit a dynamic individual looking to work mainly from home as well as from our Cheshire, Manchester or London offices on occasion. You will also be required to attend regular meetings with Director as well as with suppliers and other members of the business.

As a personal assistant (PA) you will work closely with Director to provide administrative support, on a one-to-one basis. You will help make the best use of their time by dealing with secretarial and administrative tasks.

You will also manage our student services team so you will need extensive knowledge of the organisation to aid operational and customer service improvements. You will need to fully understand the organisation's aims and objectives to drive efficiency across the business.

Director will rely heavily on their PA, trusting that work will be handled efficiently in their absence. Discretion and confidentiality are therefore essential attributes for a successful PA.

As a PA, you will often act as the manager's first point of contact with people from both inside and outside the organisation. Tasks are likely to include:

  • devising and maintaining office systems, including data management and filing;
  • arranging travel, accommodation and, occasionally, travelling with the manager to take notes or dictation at meetings or to provide general assistance during presentations;
  • screening phone calls, enquiries and requests, and handling them when appropriate;
  • meeting and greeting visitors at all levels of seniority;
  • organising and maintaining diaries and making appointments;

What is content marketing?

so what is Content marketing? It is probably the most popular aspect of marketing across the internet for business in 2016 due to the return on investment it provides.

Marketing is impossible without the creation of content and over recent years we have seen decline of spend across more traditional methods of advertising such as banner or pay per click Google adwords because of the cost involved and results versus other digital channels.

A large amount of Google search users will skip straight to organic listings under adverts – Accordingly to a recent SEOmoz article organic results are 8.5x more likely to be clicked on than paid search results!

Also the fact that Google is no longer showing AdWords ads on the right hand side of its search results pages which makes it more competitive for the 3 or 4 spots available pushing organic listings down more means that many businesses are pursuing search engine ranking and domination of results through content marketing as a more cost effective method but also to attract traffic for broader search terms.

Consumer behaviour shows that approximately 25% of our searches are around brands, products and services we are actively looking for but the greater number of searches are centered around solving a pain – We search to solve a problem, to get the answer to a question, to research or learn more or compare options.

Keywords are rarely used on a daily basis as part of many marketing strategies and often are neglected after the initial website build and optimsiation meaning it becomes very hard to increase ranking positions and number of times presented in results as a business may only have opportunity to appear in search results for their company name and offerings which would be fine if someone is searching for something specific.

If we turn it around and lets think about your customer journey – Lets imagine you are searching for a ‘yellow widget' we may search for the ‘best yellow widgets' or ‘top 10 yellow widgets' to start comparing options, or research to find out more about types of yellow widgets or the benefits of yellow widgets – we go through a variety of terms to before establishing our shortlist. We may also click through a variety of related articles and materials on our search. Content marketing allows us to create ‘tell not sell' articles to enhance the journey!

Again with the term ‘Blogging' this often acts as an instant turn off to businesses who think it will take over their lives or drain their employee resources with no real benefit – but in fact there is a huge business case for blogging such as increase in traffic and leads.content-marketing-process

Websites with Blogs have 434% more indexed pages (helps search engines & SEO efforts) and 97 % more inbound links. (U.addresstwosee latest 2016 blogging facts

Blogs tend to be where we create this type of content which could be video, article, infographic, whitepaper, tips etc as well as our online press releases.

Google basically rewards businesses who create good quality, unique content on a frequent and consistent basis and successful sites such as the BBC are quite simply blogs – So taking this principle on board content marketing using business blogs as well as promotion tools like email and social networks etc to share and gain reach can increase your engagement and search ranking tenfold.

Developing a consistent and frequent content strategy geared around SEO (search engine optimisation) means we can reach a wider audience, attract visitors into our websites, capture data of prospects which is critical to build sales or lead generation funnels as well as nurture them through to conversion as well as engaging with existing customers for repeat purchase.

Using inbound marketing as a strategy using our website as a content hub tends to be the most effective method as content purely posted in social networks has a short term visibility an d no ongoing seO benefit as content is locked behind a login so Google can't see this meaning it can't be found in search results.

Durability of content whereby it can keep on working for our businesses is key due to the fact we really want to reap the exposure and reach of content over a pre-longed period of time which will in turn enhance visibility in search results of search engines and thus increase web traffic and leads.

What is SEO / Search Engine Optimsiation?

SEO or search engine optimisation is possibly one of the most misunderstood elements of online marketing. Digital agencies have made a tidy profit from businesses lack of knowledge on the subject and unfortunately in some cases caused some detrimental results through applying bad practices.

The term ‘search engine optimsiation‘ quite simply refers to the appearance in search results within a search engine such as Google (reaches 90% of the Internets audience) resulting in more click-through to a company website or blog posts hence more traffic and ultimately more conversion.

SEO is very important for any business as Google handles over 3.5 billion search submissions a day – Check out this recent article ‘100 Amazing Google stats and facts

The more we appear in search for an array of terms the better. Think about it in terms of the more content you create such as blogs or pages, images or videos etc then the more property you are buying on the web and the larger your property portfolio the more visibility you have.

what is seo

SEO is an on-going process not a one-off activity and it should be considered as an investment.

Your Google adwords campaign is only going to perform for your business for as long as you pay – Content marketing however is a strategy many have adopted because of it's return on investment.

Content marketing is a fairly new buzzword banded around in digital but just what does ‘content marketing mean?' – Well it is simply the creation of content for the web to drive inbound traffic. Think of it as drawing your audience in based on their interest.

An article you publish from your blog will keep on creeping up he search ranking and could be bringing in even more leads and traffic 6 months down the line than it did when first published.

Consider creating evergreen content as part of your content and search marketing strategy because articles such as this one ‘what is SEO' is timeless and will still be relevant in months to come unlike timely new pieces.

I would say the biggest pitfall of search marketing is the lack of use of search terms relating to problem solving. Consider the fact that the majority of us use a search engine to research or identify a solution to an issue we have.

So using the example that we as a training provider want to appear in search for terms such as ‘seo course london' this assumes the searcher knows about seo and wishes to learn more.

What about the people searching to find out ‘what is SEO' they are not going to search for a course necessarily but research more about it and perhaps could be inspired into attending a course by reading an array of articles all about SEO, its importance for business, why a business needs an search strategy and so on.

Imagine that 25% of searches are those looking for something specific but 75% of searches are looking to find a solution.

We want to use a knowledge base such as our blog to help draw in visitors interested in our topic ‘digital marketing' – we want to establish ourselves as influencers in this field and build our authority and trust with readers through a tell not sell approach. We want to reach a broader audience using search terms covering our business, products, services etc as well as helping to bridge the digital skills gap.

Would someone feel closer to a brand or business if they had read several useful articles about a subject they were interested in or they had seen numerous times in search results? – well the answer is most probably.

SEO can be simplified into an activity all marketers can be involved in – it is not a dark, complex art only suited to digital experts or agencies. Establishing the terms you wish to rank for is probably the hardest element, followed by mapping out pages on your site to map those keywords to followed by a consistent content marketing strategy to generate useful blog articles to match what people are searching for in your industry. A business should always perform an SEO audit to establish exactly how visible they are in search prior to any other activities.

Digital Marketing Qualifications are key to bridging skills gap

With a huge digital marketing skills gap in the UK digital marketing qualifications such as the CAM Diploma in Digital Marketing will be the key to bridging the lack of advanced knowledge in this  industry.

We find that digital marketing skills are the most sought after in business due to the fact that every business needs to develop their online presence to stay ahead of competition and generate more leads and ultimately profit. Digital marketing channels have also been very popular due to their high return on investment and speed to recognise a return.

Unfortunately we just don't have enough skilled digital marketers to fill job roles and this is partially due to the fact that many senior level managers achieved degrees in marketing but at that time their was very little if any digital marketing in the syllabus.

As digital marketing hit a high we also saw many jump on the band wagon to ‘train' attendees in digital or social media related topics but these courses tended to be delivered by inexperienced or self-taught trainers rather than practitioners which meant there was a huge emphasis on broad strategy or use but no practical or proven examples. In turn there are very few accredited or certified courses of this nature available in the UK and with a huge amount of online content it seems fairly daunting to go the self-teaching route (never mind the time involved).

Hence why we feel this industry needs regulation to ensure delegates receive the quality and value for money that is available in professional and academic study. The great news is there are providers who are accredited and certified – The Chartered Institute of Marketing is one of those bodies forging the way in marketing and digital!

About CIM (The Chartered Institute of Marketing)
