A good old-fashioned deep dive into the tools and strategies to use in online marketing is all good and well, but sometimes, the end goal goes unmentioned: improving sales and making your business successful.
Perhaps it’s a little too brutally honest to be talked about that often, but it’s important to remember what you’re striving to achieve with your online marketing. That’s why when you see a business soaring to success and making some major profit with the help of marketing strategies, it’s time to sit up and take notice. We found one such success story and just had to get the inside scoop.
We’re talking to Luke Hughes of Origym in this episode of the Exposure Ninja Digital Marketing Podcast. Luke’s the Managing Director of this personal training business which has stormed through the field to become a market leader, less than two years into its existence. The business aims to undercut the plethora of premium-rate personal trainer brands around today, whilst maintaining the quality expected from customers. It’s been a huge success already, turning over seven figures in the first full year with a six-figure net profit.
Luke’s been pretty hands-on with Origym’s marketing strategies, teaching himself the ways of SEO in very little time. That makes it even more outrageous that the Origym website’s Domain Authority is already at 44 – a number most multi-year businesses dream of reaching. Luke talks us through what he and his team have been doing marketing-wise to pull off these tremendous numbers. Plans for Google ads and Facebook ads are discussed, as well as some mean link acquisition strategies to get that DA soaring and put the company on some major publications.
Hughes uses his sales background to never lose sight of that goal of making a profit, but it’s combining that with a more personal, transparent approach that has given Origym the edge over their competitors. So, from a fresh view on digital marketing, to an ethos and branding that makes a genuine difference, there is plenty of success-backed insights here to learn from.

Once unattainable or a luxury in most industries, apps are pretty much commonplace in today’s online world. Every major brand and company you can think of will have its own app. Sooner rather than later, we’ll reach the point where if your business does not have some sort of app, you’ll be behind the curve.
But, just like all other avenues of your business, an app needs to be presented and promoted well to succeed. A poor-quality app that’s difficult to navigate or isn’t functional will flop, potentially creating a negative perception around your entire business. Promotion, meanwhile, is even trickier, with a very limited amount of avenues through which to generate awareness – let alone interest – around a fresh app.
We’re chatting once again to Moran Pober in this digital marketing podcast episode, who has plenty of experience when it comes to owning a successful app. Moran founded iTips: an app that has featured in the top 100 in the app stores of some of the biggest markets on the globe, including the UK, the US and Canada. He talks us through the decision of acquiring and investing in the app, spotting a hole in the market and an opportunity to dominate it – just like all great business strategies. And the best part for Moran is: all of the technical work was carried out by a well-crafted team of app experts.
The development and promotion of the app carried out by this team was vital, making use of new iOS updates to meet its new criteria for content within the Apple app store. Well-targeted paid traffic was utilised, whilst some agile work on landing pages, featured screenshots and icon changes also played their part. If you’re looking for ways to improve conversions and user experience on your app, or are still looking to launch an app, there are some mega-useful tips in this episode for you.

At a glance, the journey of a business towards success can seem like a pretty set-in-stone path, regardless of your industry. Build a client base, sell more and more products, increase your hires and expand the company – that’s the framework you’ll often find in a business, but that doesn’t mean it should be the one that you follow.
Instead of battling against competitors using that standard process, what if you could acquire those competitors – or other business that possess synergy with yours – and expand that way? Sure, it’s bound to be quite an expense during your company’s formative years. But, if you pick the right businesses and negotiate well, it’s an investment that could give you some serious pulling power.
In this episode of the Exposure Ninja Digital Marketing Podcast, we talk to Moran Pober: the founder of ABD Assets. ABD is independent firm that specialises in business transactions, working with companies with huge upsides and assisting them with their goals. There’s no better person than Moran, then, to chat to about how acquiring relevant companies can be a route to success.
Moran gives us a further understanding of acquisitions can allow you to advance in a number of ways, such as speeding up the progress and quality of your products or services – or even create brand new ones altogether. He gives us some tips on identifying the companies that could benefit yours if acquired, how to ensure equity in your deal, and how integrate your new acquisition swiftly, smoothly and effectively.

From handing out flyers in a local park for proof of concept, to a consumer base of thousands of satisfied return users – all in just over 24 months. Sounds like the sort of business success story you’d want to learn more about, right?
Mark Hughes is the co-founder of the Tutora and our latest guest on the Exposure Ninja Digital Marketing Podcast. Hughes has played an integral role (alongside fellow co-founder Scott Woodley) in Tutora defying the odds and flourishing as a business, less than three years since its inception. Not only that, but Mark and the team have achieved this in a relatively crowded market, populated by established names with considerable financial backing.
This success was achieved via a somewhat untraditional form of investment, too: crowdfunding. And all this has been carried out with a ‘chicken and egg’ business model, which many have tried and failed to, shall we say, crack. The company connects students and tutors in all manner of different contacts – from academic studies to piano lessons. For Tutora to succeed, tutors are required to join up so the students can find what they’re looking for… but the tutors need students on the system to be convinced to join.
It’s a tricky platform to master, but Tutora has nailed it, thanks in no small part to some awesome digital marketing strategies. Mark talks us through the company’s use of PPC, SEO, Facebook remarketing and plenty more to help them dominate their market, as well as a glimpse into what the future holds for this trailblazing business.
From the techniques used, to the mind-set that’s driven the business to incredible heights, there are plenty of actionable tips and theories in this podcast episode to carry over to your own projects and experiences. Enjoy!

With so many tactics, tips, tricks and tools involved in digital marketing, no-one would blame you for losing sight of what it’s all in the name of: generating more leads and making sales. Whatever path you go down on your online marketing journey, every step you take should be in the name of encouraging users to invest in your service, product, company or business.
Perhaps there’s no greater example of this than with calls to action. A small, yet significant and emphasised feature on your web pages, a call to action is a crystallisation of everything you’re trying to achieve with your website and online activity. Whether it’s just a handful of words, a contact form, or a redirection to further down the conversion funnel, your aim with a CTA is to gently guide interested onlookers into becoming fully-fledged customers.
In this podcast episode, our very own Lozz Newton chats to Head Ninja Tim Kitchen about crafting the perfect CTA. Outlining your main goal, avoiding classic conversion blockers and keeping things simple for users are just a few of the key techniques Lozz and Tim explain in-depth.
The quality of your call to action is often the defining factor in the conversion rate of your entire website, so this is our way of helping you ensure those CTAs are doing their vital job well. And the thing is: if you nail this aspect of your website, you can see your leads and sales soar - without having to worry about increasing your website traffic! It's not always about expanding your reach to find more customers; it's often about improving what you already use to make that traffic more efficient. There's no greater example of this than with calls to action.
