Show No.12 – Matt Duggan – Facebook Marketing Expert

I have dabbled with Facebook and thought I knew enough to get by, that was before I chatted with Matt on the show. I met Matt Duggan back in 2015 when AGR produced a show episode with Jonathan Pfahl, of Rockstar Mentoring.  Matt was based there and was head of digital marketing for the group.

I want to start using Facebook more to its potential for business so I decided to invite Matt for a half hour interview to find out more about using Facebook for business. After editing and re-listening to the show I wanted my business to take up his services. So I booked a conference call. Follow me on Facebook – Chris Murray     View Show

The bottom line for most businesses is maintaining and increases sales. So I wanted to ask Christina the ultimate question “Can we use LinkedIn to increase sales?” Christina is fast becoming a top thought leader in her field.- Chris Murray. View Show

A lot of us will remember watching Levi Roots strolling up to the Dragon’s Den playing his guitar and asking shrewd business investors for £50,000 of investment for a sauce his granny use to make for him… But in all seriousness, if this is what it takes to be successful, then I want to take guitar lessons.

An external subjective look at you and your business could be the answer to unlocking its potential.

Show No.5 – Mentoring – Learning From Someone Else’s Mistakes And Not Your Own

According to Jonathan Pfahl, Managing Director of the country’s leading mentoring group Rockstar Mentoring, a good mentor is someone who has built a business, taken it through multiple recessions and then sold it for a considerable profit. If business owners had someone at the end of an email or phone call who has built a successful business in their sector and could offer them advice on exactly how to achieve their goals, they would probably be on the phone every other day to that individual.

On the 4th June 2015 live in the House Of Commons Chancellor George Osborne said, “We (Great Britain) don’t export enough. So what is being done to encourage more innovation in Britain? Compared with our neighbouring countries it appears that more manufacturing is needed to further boost the economy and compete with the likes of Germany, France, and the Netherlands when it comes to the amount we export. So what support is there for budding innovators and can “birds of a feather get together” and share knowledge and experience for the greater good of themselves and the country?

Show No.2 – Email Marketing, Does it Work?

Many start-up businesses begin with a telephone, email and if they are lucky, a website. Many established businesses still allocate sizable marketing funds to email campaigns. But has email had its day? Is it on its way out? Spam and junk mail are driving most of us up the wall. The question is, is anyone making money from email campaigns? We spoke to email marketing expert Tim Watson from Zettasphere, Chairman of the “Email Best Practice Hub” at the DMA (Direct Marketing Association). The big question was, is email dead?
