Alison May has built Brocante Home on the back of a very clear manifesto. In fact, her manifesto is so clear that she actually released it to her audience as a way to clearly establish the purpose of her site.
In this episode, we dig through Alison’s growth story so far and hear how she’s grown the Brocante Home, courses and membership, all without ever being ‘sales’. She shares how her authenticity and openness has been a powerful tool to unite her audience around the mission and build a level of trust that very few businesses ever achieve.
We’re joined by Exposure Ninja’s very own Nic Tuxford, who as well as being a superstar Digital Marketer is a long time follower of Alison’s. It’s fascinating to hear Nic’s take, as a customer, and to hear how how Alison’s message and approach has resonated so well.
Fascinating insights for any business, whether or not you’re in a similar market, on the importance of authenticity.

This episode’s guests are content marketing duo Andrew and Pete. Known for their fun approach (no boring, corporate-speak buzzwords here!) and liberal use of emojis, we discuss how brands can develop their own ‘Content Stamp’ and use it to make every piece they write more engaging and more effective at driving traffic, sales and familiarity.
They also share how they organised and promoted their first ever online conference, attracting some of the biggest names in their industry to speak. Online conferences can be a really nifty way of immediately raising your credibility and authority, and can bring in some very valuable connections. Hearing the guys talk about their mistakes and sharing their top tips will be really useful if this is something that you’re considering.

Steph Douglas built eCommerce store Don’t Buy Her Flowers off the back of the success of her ‘warts and all blog’.
In this episode Steph takes us behind the scenes of the store’s growth to explain how she used the popularity of the blog to drive sales in the store, designed the brand, built the social media and email marketing channels, and even used being publicly labelled as a ‘bad parent’ by the Daily Mail to grow her shop’s sales.

Our guest this week shows that whatever your story is, you can find a way to use it to grow your business and build a closeness with your audience.
Ryan Stewman has been to prison - not once but twice - and not because he forgot to pay tax. No, his offenses were related to guns and drugs.
But in this episode, you’ll hear how he’s used that background to build authenticity and discover why he’s not afraid to tell people about his past because, when presented in the right way, he knows it builds rapport.
We discuss Ryan’s pretty non-traditional approach to social media and blogging, and you’ll hear from him how he grew the Hardcore Closer page to over 150,000 fans just by running boosted posts on his own blog posts!
