To be successful in the digital solutions world you need to have vision. The ability to look into the future and see what is coming so that you can keep ahead of the competition.
As a digital strategist, I am always focused on what’s around the corner and can recognise impending pivotal moments well before they happen. Tapping into this knowledge is how Brilliant Digital is able to achieve a sustained return on investment for our clients.
Being able to see the future enables me to readily identify unprecedented opportunities. I thrive when I am deep in strategic development with a client and the look on their face tells me that my words are resonating with them… or that I’ve triggered genuine excitement about how we can help their business reach new heights.
I also love to access the empathetic and creative part of my brain. Once I understand a market I explore and discover what attracts that customer to a business and in turn understand how to create audience connection and authentic brand engagement.
I then combine that creativity with my inherent analytical skills and my logical side takes over. I am able to marry the two elements together and determine the drivers that will lead to positive business growth.
From there the rubber on the road comes from creating a strategic plan and detailing the steps for its execution… many people set a plan, but they don’t follow through.
It’s one thing to say you are an expert… it’s another to show your expertise. I’ve enjoyed more than 20 years in digital branding, website design, digital marketing and software solutions and I truly know what it takes to succeed.
When I founded Brilliant Digital in 2009, I set my sights on partnering with hard working business owners.
My understanding of branding, marketing and digital technologies enabled me to see so many possibilities and now, more than a decade later, I am extremely proud of the longevity of my business relationships.
I know that if a great business can harness the power of the digital space and implement the right digital solutions, they will truly thrive within their sector.
If they don’t embrace all things digital, they will disappear.
It’s a real passion of mine to support good businesses and stand alongside them as they flourish and grow.
I understand that some business owners are sceptical about digital marketing… especially if they have had negative experiences in the past.
But if you do this right… seek true expertise to develop a thorough strategic plan and then execute that plan, you will achieve the results you deserve.
It is critical that we take a holistic view of a business – we need to see the whole picture.
You cannot market a business or offer any digital solution unless you deeply understand the market AND the business operations.
I love to dive deep into the processes within the business to make sure the necessary technical elements are in place to support the expansion that will undoubtedly come once our plans are implemented.
The solution also has to work for the team inside the business… or it’s no use.
Family is an integral part of Brilliant Digital… not only for me, but for every single member of our team. For so many people work is unknown for their children… they say goodbye to the kids in the morning and spend the next eight hours in a mysterious void that the children rarely understand. But for us, the void doesn’t exist. We work from home so our children see us working, they see what it takes and they recognise the value of hard work.
But we are always still available… we can go to sports days at school, take them to appointments or just stop and chat when they need us. I think this is one of the most important aspects of providing excellent service to our clients. We are all human and we all want to make our work lives be the best they can be.
Making my work life more flexible was central to Brilliant Digital’s inception. For many years I owned a veterinary practice… in fact, this is where my experience in marketing began.
I built a website for the practice and learned everything I could about Google and the digital landscape.
But as a vet, the long hours away from my daughter were hard. I needed to shift my career in order to make family time a priority and the digital space provided the perfect avenue.
Today, I’m so appreciative of how we’ve grown. I’m amazed by the people I work with every day. Their skill, their passion and their dedication support a culture that far exceeds that of many corporate organisations.
As I look to the years ahead, I know that brand value articulation will always be there. Search isn’t going anywhere… but it will require sophisticated skills to partner it with the technical capabilities aligned with new and emerging platforms. And of course the digitisation of business systems and processes is going to continue to accelerate.
Brilliant Digital’s ability to identify technological advancements and understand how to implement them for businesses across all industry sectors truly sets us apart.
Our business structure provides us with rare adaptability… we lead at every step of digital marketing and operating systems evolution. As technology shifts and we find the best way to integrate new tech into business processes.
I am really proud to be at the forefront of digital change while delivering flexible work options to our team. We are always pushing forwards and I’m supremely excited about the future.
