How did you get into digital marketing?
After several sales focussed roles in my early twenties, I sat down with a blank piece of paper and listed what I wanted to do with my career in order to be happy. Remembering I loved writing and publishing magazines on computers when I was at school (CorelDraw anyone?), I realised that digital media - and later digital marketing - was where my heart lay. My understanding of sales also means I love the granularity and proof of origination that comes with the technical side of digital marketing - buzzing from learning that £x led to £y revenue.
What's the best thing about your job?
Deep diving. Somehow this water cooler salesman became a data addict. In past agency's I have run, data began to decide subjective arguments and helped produce some incredible project results. Which is all that matters really.
Is there a highlight in your career so far?
The biggest client highlight has to be a rags to riches story. My deep dive analytics completely about-turned a failing insurance company within a year, which then sold for £32m. I made someone else a packet of money! More personally, it's been showing the versatility and resilience to be my own boss of 2 companies - with all that the economy and life throws at us.
