Digital Marketing Business Coach

Business Coaching to untangle the web

Marketing is a massive field. There’s plenty you could do. And things that you should do. But how do you untangle the web so your business message cuts through the clutter?

Hi! I’m Brook. I’m a Sydney-based business coach who specialises in digital marketing and online communications.

For the last 15 years, I’ve been working in online communications, helping small business owners build their audience and increase their visibility in the online world. With techniques including SEO, copywriting, website design and optimisation, digital strategy and execution and public relations and community management – I’ve helped hundreds of owners boost their sales and corner their market.

Regardless of how hands-on you want to be with your business marketing, I can help you save time, money and frustration with marketing techniques that are both time-honoured and cutting-edge. My business coaching is low on hype and high on practical action and sustainable strategies.

Why you could need a business coach.

      • You have fantastic clients, just not enough of them.
      • You get great feedback and word-of-mouth referrals, but inquiries and sales aren’t steady or predictable.
      • You have plenty of ideas but trouble discerning the great ones from the rest.
      • You’re prone to changing direction and sometimes lack follow through.
      • You need clarity and the confidence that comes with it.
      • You’re reacting and responding rather than leading and directing.

What makes me qualified to be your business coach?

I established my digital marketing consultancy in 2008 and have worked with hundreds of businesses from a variety of industries since then. I’ve helped businesses to sharpen their marketing strategy, tighten their communications focus, magnify their reach, online and off, and increase their reach.

Over the last 10 years, I’ve done all manner of digital marketing on behalf of clients. From website design to SEO copy writing, marketing planning and strategy, to social media implementation, competitions, campaigns and content marketing – if it happens online, there’s a fair chance I’ve done it, managed it, or trained people to do it themselves.

And all that experience goes straight into my coaching.

Business coaching gives you clarity, confidence and accountability. And in the process, you get to take actionable, practical steps to grow your business and evolve your brand. And with the beauty of technology — making location irrelevant — we can work together online to get your plan of action sorted. And your priorities set.

I’ve been told that I’m not a typical business coach.

I’m opinionated and highly practical. And my real-world experience means I can move easily between digital detail to big picture overview. I’ve been told that ‘business coach’ doesn’t cut it – as I’m also a marketing consultant, business advisor, reputation strategist and technical trainer.

Just be sure — that whatever you need to propel your business to it’s next level — together we can make it happen.

What my clients say

“My business is fairly new and I was busy with clients, but I knew I still had so much to learn. I don’t know what I don’t know and was open to learning from someone much more experienced than myself.
I wanted someone to bounce ideas off to make sure I was on the right track. When I met Brook, I instantly clicked with her refreshingly honest, no bullshit approach to business.
The coaching process was relaxed but incredibly constructive. Brook allowed me to drive the content that we would cover in any given session, and offered plenty of really useful insight and material for us to work through. The homework really helped to keep me on track and Brook has a great way of holding me accountable to doing the work, without applying too much pressure.
Since coaching with Brook, I’ve overhauled my website (and gotten far more inquiries), introduced online booking facilities, started blogging, created a mailing list and scheduled marketing emails in advance, and am about to create marketing videos. Coaching has also been invaluable for helping me overhaul my time, productivity and happiness. Before I started coaching, I felt like I was working and responding to clients around the clock and allowing work to preoccupy me and sap my energy. With Brook’s support and guidance, I’ve implemented far stronger boundaries with particular clients and created a far healthier balance between my business and the rest of my life. I’m much more confident in dealing with clients with respect to billing and setting expectations, my clients have a very clear understanding of my services and how to get the most out of my business, I’m much happier and more productive.
Since coaching, I’ve increased my revenue and profits while reducing my hours, and am on track to hit my financial goals this year. I loved Brook’s view that we dictate how we run our business, we set our days to suit us, and we don’t have to follow anyone else’s agenda – that is priceless. Thanks again so much, Brook. You’ve changed my life. I’m mega grateful.”

“I decided to engage Brook as my business coach because I’d worked with her before and I knew she knew her stuff and I wanted someone ‘in the know’ to support me during my first online course launch. Brook helped me in those pivotal days to focus on the key tasks that were essential, not only to the smooth running of the course, but reaching the people who would be most likely to benefit and would purchase. She was, variously, my teacher, trainer, cheer-squad, confidant, accountability coach, and business manager and it made the whole experience that much more easy. Brook is a great combination of supportive, plain speaking, encouraging, and firm when required.”

I decided to engage Brook as my business coach because I needed an objective, credible second opinion to verify my business decisions and Brook has the holy grail combo of no-nonsense business first, with a marketing lens. The process of one-to-one coaching with Brook was fabulous. Her tough questions that were all relevant and useful and she was accommodating when life and business got in the way.
Since working with Brook, I’ve taken big action in two key target areas that I identified when we started working together. I took a big step to invest financially in the business, in both systems and people. Our entire marketing is set up and automated now, so I’m less reliant on personal strengths and time constraints. We have a brand new beautiful website, thanks to Brook and her team. And I’ve engaged a social media person too, to generate credibility-boosting numbers and activity in social media.

Coaching with Brook has renewed my faith in my own decision-making compass. The launch of three unique product lines has been far more scalable and less reliant on my personal contacts and my personal hours. Our second corporate event made a profit and received incredible feedback. And our brand is positioned to best capture the audience we want to sell to.

I’d happily recommend Brook’s business coaching.”

“I needed help to restart my business marketing because I didn’t have enough clients. I find Brook’s clarity really helpful. She challenges a lot of my assumptions and gets me out of my comfort zone.

The process of working together is excellent. I’ve had a huge amount of practical advice on everything from putting together proposals to writing for my audience. Since coaching, I’ve made changes to my website, started blogging, changed where and how I work, and been far more productive. Brook’s advice on improving SEO led to a new client finding me only through my website for the first time ever! Brook cheered me on as I prepared my proposal and I landed a big new contract. I feel far more confident in my business and where I’m headed since coaching.”
