@LukeQuilter, thanks for joining us today Luke. For those that don’t know could you just explain to us what it is you do? #MIVReveals
@Myincventures @SleepingGiantM is a digital marketing agency, working with clients to drive relevant traffic to their websites. @Giant_campus trains people in digital marketing so they can do this for themselves! As CEO, I oversee what we do in both businesses and ensure we are constantly evolving and developing. #MIVReveals
@LukeQuilter Can you tell us about your background and what inspired you to start up your #company? #MIVReveals
@Myincventures @anthonyklokkou and I worked client side before starting @SleepingGiantM. Agencies were part of the day to day. Whenever we contacted an agency, they were either great at tech or at customer service. Never both. @SleepingGiantM was created to offer just that. It's simple, but not many agencies have been able to do it. #MIVReveals
@LukeQuilter What were the biggest challenges when setting up your #business? #MIVReveals
@Myincventures For us, it was just a lot of hard work and long hours! That doesn't stop. The determination pays off, though. #MIVReveals
@LukeQuilter What type of business support have you received from @FolkestoneWorks @shepwaydc? #MIVReveals
@Myincventures For 2 years we've had rate relief from @shepwaydc, which was great. We used this to recruit and grow faster. #MIVReveals
@LukeQuilter What makes your business unique and differentiates you from your competitors? #MIVReveals
@Myincventures Simply being as good as our word. We get great results and offer great customer service. Oh, and our ball pit! #MIVReveals
@LukeQuilter What are your top digital marketing tips for #startup businesses? #MIVReveals
@Myincventures Ask yourself: 1. What questions do my customers ask? 2. Are the answers on my website? If not, get them on there! #MIVReveals
@LukeQuilter What would you say is your proudest #business moment so far? #MIVReveals
@Myincventures There have been many great moments, and so little time to reflect. Carrying the Olympic torch was a high point. #MIVReveals
@LukeQuilter What sacrifices have you had to make to become an #entrepreneur? #MIVReveals
@Myincventures Starting SGM with no income, working through evenings and weekend was tough. I wouldn’t change a thing though! #MIVReveals
@LukeQuilter What does success look like to you? #MIVReveals
@Myincventures Success is life balance and happiness. There's not much point in anything else! #MIVReveals
@LukeQuilter What does the future hold? Any exciting plans we should keep an eye out for? #MIVReveals
@Myincventures In the face of Brexit and other uncertainties, we will stay agile and react faster than anyone to the change. @SleepingGiantM is still only 8 years old. We have a lot more we want to achieve in the business. #MIVReveals
