Instructor Biography

Josepf Haslam, I train the trainers

I have a confession to make. I love making bottom line differences. There is nothing more fulfilling to me than crafting and implementing a spot-on digital strategy. Stop using fragmented solutions! Of course your PR firm wants to sell you more PR and your PPC firm says pay-per-click is the way to go. I start with your goals and objectives and then craft a "solution" independent approach for you. Digital Marketing is about creating enduring benefits for your business as people go online to find out more about you. It is all about improving your bottom line results today and in a sustainable long-term way as well.

Is your Advertising or PR driving people to your competitor's website? If you do not have a well established digital footprint then you are missing out! People go online to search for you after they see your PR or advertsing. What do they find (I can tell you, ask me).
