Day out in Durham with @staceyt304 testing my camera. I'm not a photographer, but it was a good day to have a camera out in Durham.👌🏾 Great scenery, interesting people, a mini pro trump march (5 people), a miners memorial event and 2 random drunks that wanted a picture taken to show me "the real Durham".😂 I get why people love heading out with a camera now. People and places are interesting! 📷

A shameless "new camera" selfie. I'm really starting to understand how these DSLR cameras work, love learning new things 😊

This camera is the one I am going to be using to build my online courses on digital marketing. The format will be video, so I'll be putting my makeshift studio to use! 📷📽️ I am looking to connect with other digital minded and marketing people on here! 🤓

I'm not a creative person by nature. I'm very much a "left brained" logical person who likes data and analytics. 🤓

But you can learn to be creative, even if your learning process is via logic and analytics. 👨🏾‍💻 - By following and learning from creative people, you can force yourself to become more creative by replicating ideas and techniques.

Eventually, you'll become more naturally creative and be able to step outside of your logical brain and come up with ideas. Learning photography and videography is my creative objective 🙌🏾 #digitalmarketing #marketingtips #marketingdigital #seo #ppc #socialmedia #socialmediamarketing #onlinemarketingtips #onlinemarketing #digital #marketing #brand #branding #sem #smm #marketingtips #onlinemarketer #hungry #motivated #videomarketing #video #personalbrand #personalbranding #creative #youtuber #neverstoplearning
You don't need the latest software to get s**t done. I'm not using a Mac, let alone Adobe Premiere. 👨🏾‍💻 I'm using editing software that's probably going to be discontinued, it definitely isn't the fastest and it has limited capabilities. 😒

But, that's not the point! The point is that I get s**t done. I'm creating content and building my brand on a budget. Keep your costs low 😊💷💵 #digitalmarketing #marketingtips #marketingdigital #seo #ppc #socialmedia #socialmediamarketing #onlinemarketingtips #onlinemarketing #digital #marketing #brand #branding #sem #smm #marketingtips #onlinemarketer #hungry #motivated #videomarketing #video #personalbrand #personalbranding #creative #youtuber #neverstoplearning
Anybody here love MS Excel? No? Really? 😄

Although you may think of Excel as boring, the best digital marketers, the "doers" and implementers all have one thing in common. They can all use Excel comfortably and to a proficient level. 🤓 
Think about it... 🤔

What digital marketing tool or platform DOESN'T export to Excel? You's be hard pressed to find one.

So if you want to get more from your data and you want to build reports that turn data into actionable insight, then Excel is your best mate. 
In my latest video, I break down the reasons why it's time to avoid learning more about Excel, and why the best digital marketers live and breathe the spreadsheet life! 👨🏾‍💻 #digitalmarketing #marketingtips #marketingdigital #seo #ppc #socialmedia #socialmediamarketing #onlinemarketingtips #onlinemarketing #digital #marketing #brand #branding #sem #smm #marketingtips #onlinemarketer #hungry #motivated #videomarketing #video #personalbrand #personalbranding #creative #youtuber #neverstoplearning
I had a friend who said he really wanted to get into app development. He had the foundations but wanted and needed to learn more 🤓

He hated his job in retail, it was soul destroying. He was desperate to make the switch into a tech role. However... I asked him what he's doing to break into the Industry? What books he's reading? What apps he's building? What he's doing to differentiate himself from the hoardes of others wanting to get into the industry. 
He had no answers to these questions and wasn't putting in the work outside of hours to get there. I don't know what he's doing now, but if he didn't change, he definitely hasn't moved forward... 🤔

The brand is always in the background... Not just in this picture, but in general. Branding is a seed planted in the mind of an individual. 🌱

Building a strong brand means you won't have to do heavy lifting when it comes to the transactional side of sales and marketing, you'll win the business more often 💷💵 Is it hard to build a brand? You're damn right! But is it worth it? Hell yes! 💪🏾 #digitalmarketing #marketingtips #marketingdigital #seo #ppc #socialmedia #socialmediamarketing #onlinemarketingtips #onlinemarketing #digital #marketing #brand #branding #sem #smm #marketingtips #onlinemarketer #hungry #motivated #videomarketing #video #personalbrand #personalbranding #creative #youtuber #neverstoplearning
Should you outsource your marketing overseas to countries like India or the Philippines to save money? Well, like many things in life, it depends. 🤔

The obvious part to get out the way is the fact that a HUGE amount of spam comes from developing countries, which puts people from outsourcing overseas, but.... Does that mean you shouldn't do it? Definitely not. Check out my video on the subject on my website.

In the last 10 years, smartphones have changed absolutely everything! 📱

Have a question, reach for your phone and Google it. Lost? Pull out your phone and check the map. Bored? Download a game. 📲

In my case, if you need help with digital marketing, at any point jump on your phone and check out my YouTube channel 📽️ #digitalmarketing #marketingtips #marketingdigital #seo #ppc #socialmedia #socialmediamarketing #onlinemarketingtips #onlinemarketing #digital #marketing #brand #branding #sem #smm #marketingtips #onlinemarketer #hungry #motivated #videomarketing #video #personalbrand #personalbranding #creative #youtuber #neverstoplearning
New toy! Welcome to my makeshift video studio 😂

Lights, camera tripod and camera didn't cost much at all, but adds a good professional look and feel to my content 👌🏾 There are people out there who max out credit cards and break the bank to do video content, you really don't need to!

Do it on the cheap and spend money in relation to how much your content brings in directly 💷

If your content generates £1000s in revenue a week, you can afford to upgrade 💪🏾 If not, don't be stupid and break the bank trying to "make it" as a YouTuber. 📷📽️ #digitalmarketing #marketingtips #marketingdigital #seo #ppc #socialmedia #socialmediamarketing #onlinemarketingtips #onlinemarketing #digital #marketing #brand #branding #sem #smm #marketingtips #onlinemarketer #hungry #motivated #videomarketing #video #personalbrand #personalbranding #creative #youtuber #neverstoplearning
Finally made the pilgrimage to @wylam_brewery so many good beers! @staceyt304

The power of good photography is becoming increasingly important! 🤔

It doesn't matter what you do. Whether you're a personal trainer, a chef or a dropship e-commerce expert, good photography sells! 💰💷💵 I want to start getting better at photography and taking higher quality pics, so I need a better camera 📷

To be able to afford the camera I want, I've got a lot of work to do!
