I've recently been working with many bloggers over the past few weeks. All of which have the same fundamental problem. Their livelihoods are dominated and influenced by DA (Domain Authority).

PR with Claire Gamble
This episode we are going to focus on one of the most important aspect of any kind of digital campaign. Good old-fashioned PR. I think sometimes we can get all a little carried away with the technical nitty gritty of digital marketing and it's shiny tools. It's important to remember that when it comes to exposure, Digital PR is one of the biggest tools in your toolkit. Let's not forget that when it comes to website visability with SEO, links are really important and it's not about the quantity of link (yes, ignore those spam emails) it's about the quality of links and PR is one of the best ways to achieve those links. I spoke this episode with a PR expert in Claire Gamble from Unhooked Communications who provides PR services to a range of local and national clients. We discuss how businesses can uncover and utilise PR opportunities that perhaps they weren't even aware of and some of the tactics involved in harnessing them.

A Brief Introduction to Marketing with Roger Edwards
Quick Note from the Presenter: I'm so, so sorry it's been such a long time since I gave you an episode of the Punkcast, however, I should now be back on the wagon (Is that a suitable way of using that term?). This episode I talk with the amazing Roger Edwards, who joined me and we talked about Marketing. I feel it's really important sometimes to take a little step back and look at the bigger picture and sometimes as marketers and business owners we can get a little bogged down in tools, techniques and software, all that nitty gritty stuff, so to take a step back and look at the marketing in general is a really important. Plus, if you are new to marketing your business, product or service then this is a perfect introduction to a way of thinking for you going forward, rather than going feet first into it and walking down the wrong path. Roger has been in the world of marketing for a long, long time and that wealth of knowledge shines through when you talk to him. So take a listen at how he "frames" marketing in such an easy to understand and accessible way. You won't regret it! If you wan to contact the show you can... Email me: email@example.com

Google I/O 2019 Reaction with Mark Williams-Cook
The annual Google I/O event is sometimes compared to Glastonbury for pale skinned, SEO nerds such as myself. The three day event host a range of different announcements and seminars for marketing professionals and developers alike. Most notably for everyone else, it's the time of year that Google announce their new addition to their phone family. In this show, we will be ignoring all that stuff as Google I/O is always a great time to look into the minds of Google to try and foresee what they are thinking for the future of our digital world. As much as you might not like it, they pretty much run that world. I'm joined this episode by Mark Williams-Cook, Director at Norwich based digital agency, Candour and organiser of the fantastic meetup, SearchNorwich. We breakdown the key takeaways from Google I/O 2019 keynote speech, which always highlights the main headline announcements. We discuss... Google's plunge into bring podcasting results to Search AR coming to Search Results. The developments of Duplex on the Web. and much more.

YouTube Advertising with Fionn Patrick
On-Demand video consumption is at an all time high, we watch more YouTube and Twitch than ever before. Advertising on these platforms, I believe is a little secret treasure trove of valuable traffic. Some small business owners are put off by the idea of advertising on YouTube because they don't understand the platform, the costs or the requirements. That's why this week I've invited YouTube advertising expert Fionn Patrick. We discuss YouTube adverts in details and talk about the accessibility of YouTube ads. Can small businesses use YouTube adverts? Is it expensive? Do I need a big video production budget? All your questions about YouTube adverts on this episode of The Digital Marketing Punkcast.
