Pascal Culverhouse is the type of guy you pray your competitors aren’t. His company Electric Tobacconist sells e-Cigarettes, which (because it’s tobacco) is a market where paid ads are practically impossible to run. This means that everyone - brands AND retailers - is using SEO as their primary traffic generator. This, combined with the fast growth in the vertical, makes it uber competitive.
Despite this, Electric Tobacconist (with the help of Exposure Ninja) dominate the search results in the UK, in many cases outranking even the e-cigarette brands for their own brand names. Learn how Pascal’s relentless drive, ‘Nightclub SEO’ theory and MONSTER conversion rates have helped him and the ET team grow a business in record time. Oh, and it turns out he’s also pretty handy at cricket. But that’s another show!

This episode is a must-listen if you sell to people who are passionate about your topic OR you run (or are thinking of running) an online membership. Unless you love horses, you have probably never heard of the Parelli Savvy Club, but what Jerome Love and the team at Parelli have been doing over the years is incredible: they’ve built a hybrid online/offline membership site with tens of thousands of members in 72 countries across the World.
In this episode, hear Jerome take us behind the scenes to explain how the team has built the club, how they maintain such high member retention rates, and the non-traditional Digital Marketing approach that they take… to their Digital Marketing! What’s as important as the marketing piece here is the passion that Jerome has for the message and the cause that Parelli champions and this passion comes through in everything the brand does.

Traditional PR is something that we don’t talk about much on the Exposure Ninja podcast because we are primarily focussed on the Internet and therefore Online PR. But in this episode, Christina Nicholson of Media Maven explains how businesses can tap into the authority and credibility generated by ‘regular’ PR.
We also discuss what TV and media editors are looking for, and the mistakes that many businesses make which mean their pitches get totally ignored so that you can make sure that your pitches are successful.

Today we are joined by Robert Glazer, founder of Acceleration Partners. We wanted to get Robert on to talk about affiliate and performance marketing. Some listeners will have affiliate programs in place, many won’t yet, and some of you will be aware of the whole influencer marketing trend, so Robert is here to explain how businesses can tap into these sources of customers and build out an effective performance marketing strategy,
So whether you’re looking to get your own affiliate or performance marketing program established or you want to work with influencers without having to blindly pay out with no hope of a return, this episode should be super useful. It does get pretty in-depth in places and is one of the more advanced shows we’ve done, so get your teeth stuck in and enjoy!

We’ve brought in an accountant. Before you switch off, he’s not one of those! For one he’s a client of ours for the last couple of years, which makes him immediately awesome. But aside from that, as you’ll hear, Russell Smith is very much the owner of the accountancy business rather than the boring account. He also has a fierce appetite for digital marketing.
In this episode, we discuss the numbers that he runs his business by (accountants are always right here… as I’ve learned the hard way). We talk about the benefits of SEO vs PPC and we discuss how Russell shamelessly copied our bestselling book strategy and used it to grow his business. Good for him.
Great fun, great guy and we hope you enjoy the show.

In this episode, Tim is joined by Jason Hartman. You might not know Jason if you’re in the UK, but Jason has built his name over in the States in real estate, both through his own real estate portfolio and his training company. He’s also a prolific podcaster, and when we say prolific: his company publishes dozens of podcasts and his main one has over 800 episodes, which is pretty freakin’ serious.
What’s fascinating about Jason is how he’s built an empire around his personal brand, how he came up with a personal branding message which resonated so well with his audience, and the marketing tool kit he’s used to work in so many areas. We also get an insight into his podcasting strategy and why he has so many!
Jason is a truly fascinating guy with a great story, so enjoy the show.
