A Little Bit More About Creative Online Marketing
Hi, I'm Diane Cossie and I'm the CEO of Creative Online Marketing and I'm so excited to tell you about how Creative Online Marketing began, what we specialise in and how we help small business owners and entrepreneurs get their business either off the ground or to the next level when it comes to online marketing.
We began in 2011 when the business opportunity I was involved with split up and went their separate ways.
But every cloud has a silver lining and even though the opportunity was taken away NOBODY can ever take the skills you acquire.
So there I was with some skills in Wordpress, search engine optimisation, Google Adwords, blogging, article writing and starting to get to grips with social media.
At the same time my husband was the National Sales Manager for a log cabin company that had just won the accolade of being involved with the Ideal Home Show in March 2011.
We formed the sales and marketing team at the show and fell in love with the Swedish style open-plan living homes that we were presenting at the show and I started a website called contemporarylogliving.com.
I started with a self-hosted Wordpress blog, very little knowledge about the self-build industry (but I have worked in interior design) and I started writing keyword targeted blog posts every week on the Wordpress website.
I believed 100% that if I just kept blogging - the LEADS would COME!
And they did.
Within 4-5 months we started to dominate the search engines.
Inside 6 months we were getting 4-5,000 visitors a month and when we added a Facebook page in 2012 we started getting 15,000 visitors a month for free!
We designed an online marketing funnel to generate highly targeted leads and nowadays that one website generates sales of around £500,000 a year.
We tested the very same strategies in several other niches and people just like you starting getting the same kind of results.
So we thought we'd start to SHARE the knowledge we have with others via our online Eclasses and Ecourses.
However unlike other Eclasses and Ecourses you download, go through and find yourself just as confused as when you started (or completely overwhelmed) we thought we'd be unbelievably helpful and add even more value to our customers by offering a range of virtual services too!
Please take a look around our store, select what classes will help you, what services you need to "fill in the gaps" and we look forward to being of service to you!
To your online marketing success!
