I'm Dan, I've been using digital marketing to grow my own and my client's businesses for over 20 years now.
I started my journey promoting club events which I used social media marketing to push.
I then provided the service to a handful of clients through my contacts in hospitality and then from other industries inc financial services. When covid hit it became to difficult to conduct my one to one coaching service and all my hospitality clients fell off. This was when I productised my services into a scalable online school which was covid proof. I now exclusively offer my services to the financial services sector.
My entrepreneurial journey started at the tender age of 17.
After visiting a super-club in Leeds I knew instantly that I somehow wanted to be involved in club-land.
The following 16 years took me on a crazy ride of organising some major club events.
Back in the early days, the internet was still in its infancy.
Social media sites were starting to appear. Things like MySpace and clubbing message boards were a good way for me to get the word out about my events however when Facebook came on my radar in 2004 it was a godsend!
This was my introduction to digital marketing.
Back then it was more for the fun than a money-making venture however I learned a lot through the process.
Things like commitment which resulted in me being the longest standing active club promoter in the area & an unshakable work ethic.
I later began to productise my self taught graphic design & digital marketing skills & offer the services to the connections I had made through my years promoting club nights which led me to set up my own digital marketing agency in 2015 & realise my life long dream of quitting my part-time job & going full-time self-employed.
But I struggled to to scale my business once the referrals dried up.
I felt like I was fumbling in the dark which is when the self doubt crept in.
Things got hard
I knew I had to go out and get new clients but didn't want to come off like a car salesman so I went out and learned how to generate new clients in a way that felt comfortable to me and it WORKED!
Since then worked with 100's of clients and helped generate over £1m in sales.
I now teach these techniques to financial service professionals all over the globe.
