Interview of the Week

In this week’s show I’m joined by Johnny Beirne, Co-Founder of Speakific, the platform where event organisers and speakers connect. Guest Speakers are in demand now more than ever, from large conferences to local networks and meetups.

While there are 1000’s of great speakers out there, how do you find them? And if you are someone who can educate, empower and entertain a room, how do you get found?

Speakific is the solution. It allows event organisers to find great speakers through a simple search. Event organisers can see the speaker’s bio, reviews and videos.


JSB’s Featured Column

What is a digital marketing funnel anyway? 

I talk a lot about digital marketing funnels so I thought I should explain what I mean by it.

Put simply, a digital marketing funnel is how companies attract, convert and customers via the web.

We are all engaged in digital marketing activities and busy pushing out social media marketing messages, but are we capturing the data trail of those who are engaging with our brand and are we re-marketing to them?


The social media tool that saved my working week is… Slack

I am a project manager and lots of my time is briefing and directing my team on client work. We are also spread all over the world in different time zones and in different countries.To reduce death by email we use an app called Slack which has some great functionality.
