6 Digital Marketers Regional Business Owners Need To Follow In 2017


Business and digital marketing have always been a part of my life.

I started working in the family business as a young teenager.

As soon as I was old enough to drive, I branched out out with my best mate to run our own tennis coaching business.

During that time, digital marketing was of high interest because of how it could be used as a tool to grow a business.

I have spent many years watching, reading, listening, researching and studying marketing and social media in all its digital glory.

Over the last 3 years, I completed business degrees and passed marketing units.


I have learnt more from the digital marketers listed below, over than any other source.

My own digital marketing business started off the back of content, advice and friendships I have with the people listed below.
