Stand Out Online & Differentiate Yourself from Your Competitors

By Paula Agius on 03-Dec-2015 08:30:00

Your business has a social media and online presence. You’re posting your ‘stuff’: blogs, industry information... You’re consistently posting. So why is your engagement down?

It could be a variety of many things, but today I’m focusing on one simple foundational element: soul.


In recruitment, when job-hunter numbers were low and vacancies high, we used the phrase, “a candidate’s market”. It’s commerce 101: supply and demand.

In sales and marketing, today’s is a “buyer’s market”. Suppliers are chosen by their buyers from a multitude of available options.

Social Media Planning – Tips to Help Regulate Your Content Marketing

By Paula Agius on 26-Nov-2015 08:30:00

“Through all the social media marketing changes, one thing remains constant:
the more you teach, the more you reach.”

Remember Facebook in the mid-2000s? Pokes to say ‘hi’, hundreds of quiz apps to tell us which character of our favourite shows we were... I recall standing in a bar with friends Friday after work, an actual drink in hand, having a conversation about the virtual drinks we’d been sending earlier that afternoon.

Social media has come a long way since then. As it evolved businesses quickly took to social media marketing, wittingly infiltrating our personal time and lounge rooms with their marketing messages, and social media as a marketing channel became the must-have business tool of the time.

Some platforms fought to keep up with the supply of this overwhelming amount of content, juggling with the need to keep their platform relevant to its users. They reviewed analytics and tweaked algorithms ad infinitum so that only the best content would be delivered to only the most appropriate audience.

But through all the algorithm changes, one thing remained constant: the more you teach, the more you reach.

What is the Buyer’s Journey? Why is it Important to Sales & Marketing?

By Paula Agius on 06-Jul-2015 20:52:13

As needs-based consumers, we generally go through some routine stages prior to purchase.

We begin with the identification of a ‘need’: from something as simple as being invited to a BYO party (“I need to buy drinks to take with me”) to more complex purchases for your business (“I need to market my business better”).

We call this “the buyer’s journey and simply put it’s the active research process a buyer goes through trying to solve a problem they have, leading up to a purchase. It is a model that helps businesses keep the buyer’s behaviour, information, needs and pain points central to any activity in sales and marketing divisions.

What's the Purpose of Blogging? Tips to Creating Blogs With Great ROI!

By Paula Agius on 15-Jun-2015 20:11:00

You’ve heard it before, “You should blog,” “You really need to blog,” “Don’t you have a blog?!”

You’re not sure what the purpose of blogging is, but on your commute you’re motivated to write that 600-word story – about how no one stood up for a disabled passenger and the impact of the aloof, disengaged culture we have become.

Your story’s great; well written, delivers an inspired message - to anyone who finds it. But which of your prospective buyers is typing into Google, “What’s the impact of the aloof and disengaged on society?" Not many, I bet. 

And which part of your service or product offering serves as a solution this problem?

So what’s going on? Your prospects aren’t finding your blogs through search, and while you can still post links to your blog on forums and social media, if the topic isn’t meeting the needs ('pain points') of your prospective buyer, they’re unlikely to click through on it. “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” 

You're not blogging for business and if part of your strategy is to increase the number of visitors to your site or increase your lead conversion rate, you’re probably going to be disappointed by the results of this kind of blogging and simply give it up.

But don't do that yet! Here are my tips to writing relevant blog posts that will bring you the stats you're after:
