Torkild Smith

Hi, my name is Torkild Smith (LinkedIn) and the owner of Bramhall Digital. I am based just south of Manchester, United Kingdom.

I have been a web developer for over 25 years where I started by hand-coding all web pages. This taught me all the basics I needed to know and to get me where I am today as a Digital Marketing Strategist. I have become very conversant with this and it has enabled me to really fine-tune any marketing platform I now build using WordPress.

I specialise on web sites that not only look good but delivers as well in terms of ROI. I have an extensive network of resources so that I can fulfil the complex requirements a large website require.

 

I give my all to my projects and they take a lot of energy and expertise to get right, so I only work with select clients on projects that excite me and that I think have a real chance at success.

Our focus is on delivering a website (aka marketing platform) that works as a lead generator for you. It is that simple. But don't mistake simple for being easy to do!

If your website is not generating the leads you need please download our guide to learn how you can evaluate the success of your website and get tips for improvements that you can implement straight away.

Gerry Hogan

Hi, my name is Gerry Hogan and I partner with Torkild to deliver sales and performance strategies. I have an extensive portfolio working with large blue-chip companies and corporations, who often need to integrate a presence that will align them with the online world.

I am very down to earth and extremely direct in my approach and I know that the is a very big gap for large established organisations in integrating sales and marketing with the online world. That is where I come in, to bridge together this gap with my Sales Coaching and Bramhall Digital's Online Marketing expertise.

My approach is very much on a personal level and my enthusiasm, refreshing approach, and natural motivational and leadership skills, help people to feel at ease and adds a personal touch to all my sessions.

I have been described by those I work with as a highly sought-after, dynamic, motivating, informative public speaker. Over the last few years, I have been instrumental in taking companies from inception to high levels of turnover.

Before joining Bramhall digital, I had many years of experience in the sales and financial services sector. I have worked for Santander and I have extensive experience in building and leading teams.

Kwai Yu

Hi, my name is Kwai Yu (LinkedIn) and I partner Torkild to deliver the best possible user experience for our clients.

I have over 20 years experience as a senior IT Programme Manager leading £40million IT development projects.  I am also PRINCE II Project Management qualified practitioner.

One of the fundamental causes behind why websites fail to deliver to expectation is because most business owners don't realise a website has to be treated as a Business IT Project.  And it also has to be managed in the way same as any IT project.

This means applying the typical project management disciplines of; specifying business objective, business requirements, design requirements, coding, testing, implementation, managing change and managing risks and assumptions.

As well as project management discipline, I also bring to the team an MBA background as well as 'from the gutter' experience of implementing online marketing strategies.

If I had to name a secondary reason for why most websites fail is because most web developers don't understand business strategy and marketing.

Alison Gould

Hi, my name is Alison Gould (LinkedIn) and I partner Torkild to apply traditional marketing know-how to the online environment.

I have 20 years of experience in marketing having started as a junior marketing executive and rising to become a marketing director.  The one legacy of my marketing achievement is BT OpenReach.  It was called that when I had the sole marketing responsibility for that.

From a marketing perspective, a fundamental reason why websites fail to generate leads is because in the rush to embrace the online marketing era, most business owners fail to realise that traditional marketing know-how still counts to make online work.

Online marketing is still marketing.  And this is where my classic marketing training and experience comes in.

Online is just another channel to market, albeit a very important one.  However, being online doesn't get you leads and sales.  What gets you leads and sales is knowing how to apply the promotion, price, publicity to the world of content marketing and SEO.
