I got Google Analytics Qualified

What is GAIQ Certified?

The Google Analytics Individual Qualification (GAIQ) is a demonstration of proficiency in Google Analytics. Qualified users will be effective at leveraging Google Analytics within their organisations and at helping others to do the same.

As a Content Creator it is important to measure what is working well for you and where you can modify your Marketing Strategy.

Below is a overview of my Google journey so far…

July 2017 – I completed the Google Online Marketing Fundamentals Qualification.

April 2018 – I became a Google Local Guide.

July 2018 – I got ranked Expert Photographer and Reviewer with got over 1.5 Million views.

August 2018 – I became a YouTube Partner.

Jan 2019 – I completed Google Analytics for Beginners and then Advanced Google Analytics.

March 2019 – I passed my Google Analytics Individual Qualification

The journey is not over by any means.

Along the way you will need hands on experience to be able to complete the GAIQ. Fitting video production into my plan helped me become a YouTube Partner allowing me to link my Ad sense account and learn even more.

If you have the drive and want to expand you knowledge learn at every opportunity you can!

Here is a good starting point. Think With Google

The Importance of Motivation

A business is only as good as its workforce. Great companies improve their workforce through training and education.

A lot of companies have never considered using motivational speakers to try and enhance their team’s motivation. Bringing an established business speaker to your company or event is a great way to educate and inspire your employees and industry partners.

Motivational speakers have been popular across many countries for many years. However, what benefits do motivational speakers give to people and their businesses?
The best motivational speakers not only inspire and motivate, but also offer ways to fuel employee and business growth.

Motivational speakers work with your company to identify and strengthen your goals and objectives.
Most business objectives are clearly displayed in most office communal areas and online. A motivational speaker, however, will bring these goals and objectives back into focus.

Tips for Building and Managing Social Media Audience

Social_Media_Management Tips for Building a Social Media Audience.

Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn. Social media profiles – we all have them, but here’s a question… How many of us know what is being said about us or our brand on them?

I’m sure we all pay varying levels of interest to each of our profiles depending on our mood and interests.

In the current digital world improving your social media presence is a big obligation for individuals and businesses alike.

Here are a few Tips for Building and Managing a Social Media Audience.

  • Remember that people want to socialise with the person behind the fancy logo or strapline.
  • Try not to always post about your business offers.
  • Post at different times of the day, we all have different schedules.
  • Follow up on Tweets and engage in conversation.
  • When you find interesting articles, rather than post them all immediately schedule some to post later via social media management programs.

Try not to only post about your business offers and prices

Scheduling posts will help you reach more of your followers, especially those from different time zones. At the same time you want to be careful not to automate everything, follow up on Tweets and engage in conversation; social media is about other people too. When your followers learn that you’re an industry expert, they’ll trust your business when they look for a product in your area.

You may be surprised to learn that there are plenty of tools that can help you monitor and improve your social media activity. Personally, I had been using Hootsuite for a good six months before I upgraded to a pro package. It offers a host of features which help manage multiple profiles and it has helped me a lot to keep on top of all the updates.

Finally, remember – as humans we like to share our feelings and be part of the pack. Don’t be the guy at the party that only talks about himself.

Here is a nice breakdown from docsocTV on what Hootsuite can do for you.
