Did you know that even if the marketing budget is low businesses can still make huge profits using different reports generated by website analytics
Amongst managing the biggest Season at @_beyondtransformation_ with our SUMMER SHRED, Coaching amazing business owners in Facebook and running multiple Workshops (not to mention 3 kids, 1 + 1 Dogs, a gorgeous man and my mummy visiting)
I also completed my Diploma in Social Media Marketing.
3 Years in..... I'm completely self taught, and I thought with the saturation of so many social media marketers out there, I thought id get a diploma under my belt to. I figured I could add even more value to the businesses I work with. (I hate watching business gamble their hard earned money away on something they could do themselves for their business at no cost)
After moving to the GC from South Africa 10 years a go, with 2 x 4yr olds and a 1 year old, I had NO MARKETING BUDGET and had to start my business from scratch knowing NOONE! Having NO connections and having NO Financial backing (we spent all are $$$ applying for residency in Australia) I taught myself Organic facebook.... I failed MANY TIMES, I CRIED MANY TIMES, I threw many TANTRUMS.... It was the thought of NEVER GIVING UP, deep down knowing my hard work would pay off sometime, the NEED to provide for my family, surrounding myself with supportive people I admired and educating myself with the necessary skills to advance, this all contributed to me taking massive action and creating 2 successful businesses using FREE facebook.
I will never claim to always being right/perfect (except to you Sandy Preater) and I will never stop learning!
I will always strive to give of my best.
I will continue to support business owners and startups, and help them achieve success...... without the tears , overwhelm and frustration like I had.
I am here for YOU!

How to build extra marketing muscle
When business owners invest time and money on a website, their hope is that people will visit and buy the products and services they sell.
But rather than wait, hoping for website traffic and conversions, let the power of Google AdWords Pay Per Click campaigns do some of the marketing heavy lifting.

Tip #6: Marketing budget
Allocate a certain amount each year/period towards marketing spend. Consider marketing activities that are appropriate to your target customer. Think about online and offline advertising and don't forget to attend events and get yourself out there.
And remember to spend money to make money, well within limits that is.
Early risers, menu planners + list makers...whatever your motivation, Mark Twain was right. Getting started gets ahead. And setting the plan gives you the best chance of staying there.
Is Christmas on your mind Or have you moved already through the live content of Black Friday, seasonal celebrations + gifting to plan for the January slowdown Did you anticipate winter in summer or did you have a hurried schedule meeting some time around October
Here, there’s a spring in my step as I plan for my own 2019 alongside my workload. I’m already synching calendar dates with seasonal targets + monthly goals far beyond January.
And the all important content plan that leaves nothing to chance, has no repetition + enables agile responses when the (inevitable) unexpected happens is more polished novel than first rough draft.
In my publishing days, I used to feel that calendars + always working a season ahead was a curse + made life race by too fast. Now, it’s an essential rhythm that is one of the most valuable tools in my inbound marketing kit. The content calendar is as vital as an editorial plan. A reactive, knee-jerk marketing campaign instead of planned strategy may be less obvious than a dropped magazine issue (and that never happened in my lifetime). But the ill effects on the business could be as bad, if not worse.
So that’s why this month is all about encouraging partners + clients to take those steps + plan ahead. Even with Christmas on the horizon, there is still time...

#tbt to my first few years in New York.
When I got here I was making as little as $300 a week. Imagine living in a city like that with such limited resources. I worked during the day and went to school at night and weekends. I found ways to make whatever money I had work for me. The desire to stay here was too big.
Later, when I finished school and had a good job I got used to a bigger budget, but coming up with creative ways to use it stayed with me.
For people who rely on an hourly rate; like therapists, time literally means money. So maximizing it is important. Knowing what strategy or tool to invest it in can eliminate a lot of stress and anxiety.
Looking back I am amazed at how things worked out on such tiny resources, but it’s good to be reminded that it’s possible.

When I tell people I grew up in London, one of the first stereotypes they think of is “tea time” or “tea and crumpets” 😂 So thought I’d have some fun with it. Each week, while having my daily cup of tea, I will I’ll share what’s on my mind #ToyinsTeaTime.
I believe that marketers have a responsibility to use their budgets wisely. I’ve been in charge of small (<$50k) and large (>$500k) budgets and I always try to find a way to align business strategy with giving back/social programs. Can you imagine if a larger percentage of this $500bn was applied towards funding social and educational programs Brands have the power to make it happen. That’s what MeddlingMinds is here for.
