Hi, my name is Kayleigh Angus. I’m an unashamed social media geek who loves helping businesses and entrepreneurs boost their brands online!  I guess you landed here because you want to discover how to do social media successfully, drive more traffic to your website or simply engage with your fans better.  That’s what I do – so you’ve come to the right place! Or were you just curious to find out more about me?

I’ve studied social media and online marketing for the past 7 years and for more than 4 years I’ve helped dozens of businesses grow their social media communities, build their brand online and monetise their fans and followers into quality leads and customers.

But before we get to that I wanted to share a bit about me.

Business can be a struggle. I know – I’ve been there before! I was 22, and I’d just quit my job so I could work full-time on a business idea my cousin and I had.  We had ZERO clients and ZERO leads but the business took off and started quickly building momentum. I was going back and forth between London and Brighton to work on the business, and learning how to grow a team. I hired bookkeepers, accountants, tech people, the works – and keep in mind, before I started working for myself, I had NEVER so much as interviewed anyone! So for better or for worse, I was doing it all and learning as I went.

Honestly, so much was going on at the same time and the business was growing quickly but the bigger we grew the more it became apparent that our vision and goals for the business were different. And as Mark Pincus, co-founder of Zynga (a $7 billion dollar business named after his pet bulldog) said “Not having a clear goal leads to death by a thousand compromises”. It was an online business but it did not involve my real passion at the time – social media.

So eventually I had to make the hardest decision of my life… I walked away from the business.

My fallback option? Get a job. Was it my dream? ABSOLUTELY NOT – but I knew that if I wanted to do social media I was going to have to get serious.

So there I was – unemployed, no degree and surviving on weird groceries.

So what did I do? The only thing I COULD do – I started learning as much as I could from the experts.

I spent hours online and reading, gobbling up advice from Social Media Examiner and social media expert Mari Smith.  I hit up every resource I could possibly find.

Those 3 months of unemployment made me hit rock bottom – it was a rollercoaster ride – the low: being turned down for a £12,000 admin job I was seriously overqualified for. The high? Being hired by Mothercare, the world’s biggest specialist baby store to manage their social media presence to over 200,000 mums and dads.

Since than I’ve had the privilege of working for some of the UK’s biggest retailers including Burberry, Selfridges, Early Learning Centre and Oasis. I’ve also worked with businesses big and small sharing my knowledge and expertise with them to coach them to success. Those roles at big players taught me a lot of the secrets that the big boys know about but you probably have never heard of!

I’ve worked with clients who have had zero social media presence to managing social media communities with millions of fans.

I’ve been honored to receive many awards for the brands I’ve worked with, including Winner of best Marketing Campaign, Commendation for the Best Retail/E-Commerce Social Media Strategy, Winner in UK’s Top 100 social media brands and personally announced as an up-and-coming future leader by Drapers.

I’ve planned, implemented and managed highly successful social media campaigns including Mothercare’s “One Born Every Minute” social media campaign in partnership with Channel 4, which was appraised by Marketing Week as a good example of how brands should connect with consumers. I’ve built campaigns which have been seen my millions, trended on Twitter and my work at Selfridges was even critiqued by the marketing legend Gary Vaynerchuk as “pro”.

I tell you this not to impress you, but to impress upon you that if you follow what I say here, you can create some of the same magic with your customers. This diverse experience set’s me apart from other “experts”.

Social media is a phenomenon that has made the web interactive and even more importantly, more transparent. Managing social media for these leading companies has been very rewarding and given me the in-depth knowledge and experience to be able to share with you all the secrets of how to be successful at social media!

I am a truly passionate entrepreneur who’s main goal in business is to help other people become successful online. With years of online marketing experience and knowledge, whether you’re experienced or not in online marketing, I will help you navigate the social media marketing maze and show you how to get results from all the social media sites step-by-step.

When I’m not engaged in entrepreneurial activities, I spend most of my time hanging out with friends and family – including my beautiful little niece Esme, travelling the world, horse riding or enjoying the odd glass of good wine. I also am continuously learning and educating myself on social media and business.

The Journey Has Changed Me…

In the last 12 months, my business has continued to evolve, as have I!

It made me into more of a complete person. I overcame my fears along the way, so now I am more confident in myself. I also learned how to handle failure, so now I am more successful in whatever I do.

And most importantly, I get to help others.

So was the journey worth it? Yes!

And If I had to do it over again, I’d want it the exact same way.

To your success [/title] signature
