Please share the most memorable challenge when you first started.
People generally don’t want to admit that they need help or training in the area of public speaking, so convincing clients that our methods work was an uphill task.
How did you overcome it?
We needed a good website that could showcase what we do. And of course referrals from satisfied clients. We have corporate clients who return to us regularly for re-skilling, or even to up skill, to more advanced courses.
What motivated you to create a website?
The Paul Carr Media website was the only way to get our brand out there. Even more so during this pandemic where it is a challenge to organize group training sessions with restrictions.
In this digital transformation, we’ve set up the virtual training sessions, this is the best way forward and also to reach a larger audience.
How digital innovation helps your business?
We explored several digital marketing strategies and implemented Google Ads for a better brand presence for our website and company. We have seen a slight increase in our business but more significantly, we are able to reach a global market.
Please share your experience with Exabytes.
