Tell me about you
I’m Danny, 34 years young from Northamptonshire.
I dropped out of my degree in Business Entrepreneurship to set up my first online business 13 years ago and ever since I’ve been building, creating and working in the online marketing industry.
Largely this has been for myself or in my own businesses, big and small.
The largest part of that time was building my own digital agency (DAPA Marketing) from scratch to 100 staff in 4 years.
Turning over nearly £3m in the final year, DAPA focused on SEO and lead generation.
In 2018, I sold out of this business to focus on personal projects.
I decided that the day to day management of an agency was not for me.
Since then, I’ve done a lot of fishing, travelling and building several small internet based businesses to keep my juices flowing.
But now as we approach August ’20, after several months of lock down, those juices are not fulfilled and I am looking to work with a small amount of adventurous businesses who are looking to grow online.
Why should I trust you?
I don’t help businesses as a consultant because I have to.
I do it because I want to.
That makes a huge difference to the level of commitment, passion and quality that you get.
I’m not working with dozens of people, I’m not spread too thinly and I will only work with you if I believe I can add value.
Successful online marketing requires a great working relationship, transparency and diligence.
As importantly I want you to like me, appreciate what I do and together have some fun growing your campaigns successfully.
If all those elements are not part of our relationship, chances are it will fail and I’d rather avoid letting people down, whether it is my fault or not.
I will always tell you how it is, if it won’t work I won’t do it, no matter how much budget you have to throw at it.
Why are you different to other consultants
I could build another digital agency tomorrow.
But I don’t want to.
Doing so would once again take me off the coal face, away from the sharp end of SEO and Paid Media and they’re the things I really enjoy.
I don’t enjoy paying VAT bills or firing people.
The reason I’m different is because SEO and Paid Media is not a job for me, it’s a passion and one that I want to show off and work with like-minded businesses to maximise it.
Tell me something interesting
Last year I went fishing in the Amazon rain forest.
I was cut off from civilisation for 2 whole weeks and while I was there the forest fires were raging across the whole basin.
The media was talking about these huge fires blazing, savaging the wildlife and torturing the landscape.
Naturally my partner and family were worried.
I wasn’t able to talk to anyone, there was no phone signal and no way to call for help.
Luckily, I was happy fishing and drinking grapefruit vodka absolutely oblivious to what was happening around us and we never saw a single bit of smoke.
Although we did catch some incredible fish I have never known a bigger dog house.
