Gord Collins – Digital Marketing Success

Digital marketing agency managers know it takes skill, experience, talent, hard work and passion to position their clients well and to compete in numerous noisy marketplaces.

They amass big teams of mediocre talent, covering topics and industries they haven’t developed expertise in. What distinguishes top performing clients however, is content expertise. Agencies try all sorts of gimmicks to build traffic and generate leads. Yet customer traffic is only won through consistent, relevant, high quality content.

What clients really want is expertise in their industry and in their markets. They expect combined hard skills and soft skills to generate authoritative, engaging and action generating content that achieves high rankings and social share counts.

Whether you’re a tech startup, Realtor, hotel, news publication, travel site, airline, or financial services business, Gord can grow your volume of qualified prospects and give them a compelling experience.

They’ll bookmark, share, and blog because they’ll love your company.

I’ve generated big results for marketing agencies, tech startups, real estate publications, major hotels, and more.  It always begins with big traffic captured via excellent unique content.
