1. Tell us a bit about your background and experience?
My first experience in digital marketing was when I was working for a Personal Training college in Brisbane, Australia. The guy who founded it had developed an online course but was only generating $2,000 per month in revenue. I took it upon myself to build a website and quickly got it ranked on the top page of Google for the key phrase ‘Personal Training Course’. From here, I witnessed the sales soar from $2,000 to $240,000 within a matter of months and learnt the true value of digital marketing.
This feeling of accomplishment was incredible, and I knew from there that I wanted to help other businesses achieve the same level of success by launching my own digital marketing agency.
When I moved to the UK, I struggled to get a bank loan to start my own agency due to being Australian, hence auditioning for BBC’s The Apprentice. After winning in 2014, Climb Online was born and in just 6 years we have become one of the UK’s leading and fastest growing digital marketing agencies, with a clear vision for continued and accelerated growth. Our purpose, however, remains the same and is focused on working closely with businesses and brands to drive profit – no jargon, just results.
2. What motivates you?
There are a number of different things that motivate me personally, but on a business level I am 100% committed to building the World’s leading digital marketing agency that professionals, businesses and brands all aspire to work with as a result of our approach to the sector and ability to help our clients achieve accelerated growth.
