102 - Marketing Automation and Audience Growth, with Automation Ninjas and The R&D Community
Today I’m chatting with an expert and a business owner on the subject of Marketing Automation, and how that can help you capture an audience early on, and set you up for forming good audience relations in the long term.
Our first guest is Kenda Macdonald, from Automation Ninjas. Kenda is an expert in behavioural marketing, and helps her clients use marketing automation at all stages of the customer journey, from first contact through to client onboarding.
Our second guest for today’s episode is Richard Edwards, who’s the founder of The R&D Community, which is a training academy and support service for accountants and specialist tax consultants doing R&D claims. Don’t worry if that’s not something you know much about - we don’t really talk about R&D claims, we talk about marketing! Particularly LinkedIn and list building, which are very important subjects.
101 - Audience Growth through Partnerships, with Bad Dinosaur and trundl
Today we’re chatting about using Partnerships to help you build an audience when your business is brand new in the early stages.
First up I’m going to speak to Tina Clark, the marketing manager at an app development agency called Bad Dinosaur. Although a lot of her role is to market the agency itself, she also supports their clients with marketing strategy.
Our next guests are Hilary Mines and Tess Caven, from the new start up trundl. Trundl is a non-competitive activity motivator app, which encourages people to go outside and get some exercise, and offers charity donations as motivation. Hil is the original founder and Tess is the strategy and marketing director.
In my conversations today we touch on a few different techniques for developing your brand as a new business, and for developing your audience along with it. Partnerships are a great way to do this on a shoe string budget, and that’s where a lot of our focus is today.
