At SiteVisibility I always make the most of all of our internal and external training sessions so when they come up, I’m usually first to wave my hand in the air shouting me me me! Something brilliant about SiteVisibility is the R&D program in place and how they invest huge amounts of time into each employee giving us the chance to learn new skills both to help us in work and in our day to day lives.
Here at SiteVisibility one of the things I love is the importance the company places on personal development and we are always keen on enhancing our knowledge and understanding of the digital landscape. I have worked on various Twitter Advertising Accounts in the past and have seen some great results engaging with a range of users online so when the opportunity came around to go to a Twitter conference I took this with both arms wide open!
Last week we took time out of the office to meet up with Twitter in the London Film Museum. The topic of the morning was to discuss how Twitter could help businesses grow and engage with their target audience using a variation of both organic and paid approaches.

Email Marketing is widely regarded as a hugely important and growing part of the digital marketing industry. Think about how many email you get each day: not only from friends and colleagues, but also from stops where you make purchases, grocery stores you have accounts with, and even your bank. Consider the following excerpt:
The UK market for email marketing platforms and services grew by an estimated 15.5% year-on-year to a value of £388 million by the end of 2011

I recently attended email marketing training course, given by the IAB and I wanted to share what I learned. This isn’t a “Dos and Don’ts” type post as we’ve done that, but more a top things to consider when creating an email campaign:

We held our annual Search Innovation Seminar at Daytona Sandown Park on 22nd June, and we wanted to share the presentations. It was a fantastic time with informative presentations, great questions from our audience, and lots of knowledge sharing.
Although the weather wasn’t great, the day certainly was!
We’ve just hit what I think is a huge milestone in our podcast’s history! We’ve ticked over a million downloads. However you look at that it’s a huge number and it’s taken about 160 episodes and five and a half years to get there and it’s hugely gratifying. But before I put my feet up and open a nice cold beer I thought this might be a great opportunity to share what I think are the five best episodes.
If you’ve never listened to our the podcast before these five episodes are a great place to start.
Tim & Seth Double Whammy
I still can’t believe we got two New York Times Best-Selling authors in one show but we did! Tim Ferriss, for those of you who have not come across him before, is a productivity and lifestyle guru. It’s probably fair to say that he has had a life changing impact on many marketers. I don’t think many of you won’t have heard of Seth Godin, the prolific marketing author has written dozens of amazing marketing books; ones like Tribes are so good they’ve informed one of SiteVisibility’s fundamental business processes.
Put simply, Avinash is the most respected thinker in the world of Analytics, and in this podcast he challenges a few sacred cows, shares some serious knowledge and infects you with some of his huge passion. If you’ve not yet been biten by the Analytics bug this episode will be the one to do it.
Beginners Guide to Facebook
This is a recent episode but one that covers the fundamentals of the most popular social networking site on the planet. It’s amazed me how popular it’s become. Sometimes the podcasts can get a little detailed and involved. It’s nice to take a step back and do an introduction to a service, especially when it’s proved so useful.
My First Ever Episode
Though it feels like I’ve been on the podcast with Andy forever, that’s not actually the case. This is my first ever episode back in January of 2009. I gabbled a bit and I’m still not sure whether I added much to the discussion but what can I say, it was the first ever time!
The First Ever Episode
This was a long time before I got involved in the podcast, but I still love listening back to these first furtive steps into podcasting. It’s a little dated now but it’s a nostalgic listen for me.
