A behind-the-scenes look at TrinityP3’s social media and content marketing machine with CEO and founder, Darren Woolley

26Jan

Australian-based marketing management consulting firm TrinityP3 has built a global footprint off the back of a consistent social media and content marketing effort, with a hefty dash of 'earned media' thrown in for good measure.

In this episode of the PR Warrior Podcast, TrinityP3 founder Darren Woolley takes us behind the scenes of how he approaches the content publishing process, which mediums he uses and how social media fits into the marketing equation.

It's a great case study of persistence. Darren had been blogging since the mid-2000s but five years ago became a lot more strategic in his content marketing and his efforts have paid off big time. In 2007, the TrinityP3 website was attracting just over 3000 unique visitors per year in what is a very niche B2B field; in 2016, this figure hit 200,000 - a jump of some 7000 per cent in traffic! 

Meanwhile, the business continues to power along. Today, TrinityP3 has over 30 consultants around the world and offices in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, London; at time of recording, Darren was in the final stages of negotiating a joint venture in the US.

This episode will be of particular interest to leaders of professional services firms who want to better understand how blogging and social media can help drive global exposure and growth for their business over time.

  • the importance of developing buyer personas and writing a blog to showcase your knowledge and ideas;

Steve Vallas is the social media-savvy owner of the popular Honey Bar & Restaurant in the inner Melbourne suburb of South Melbourne.

In this interview with Trevor Young, Steve chats about using Twitter to build relationships with people as well as a sense of community around the Honey Bar brand. And while that works for him personally, it’s also a highly effective strategy in growing the Honey business.

He says how participating on the social web has underpinned the business “in a way that I wouldn’t have expected when we opened the front doors”.

“It’s allowed me to build a really strong base…allowed me to build a community around the business, that’s constantly talking about the business … constantly bringing in business,” Steve says.

29Sep

For years now Trevor Young (aka The PR Warrior) has kept tabs on what's been happening overseas in terms of social media and content marketing, collecting examples and case studies of individuals and companies that are leading the way in the space.

Now it's Australia's turn!

Content marketing in Australia has been picking up pace for a couple of years now. Google tells us the search trend for the term 'content marketing' is on the up, while according to one research report, spending on content marketing in Australia is set to increase by 61 per cent, with 12 per cent of respondents saying they will be 'significantly increasing' their budget this year.

Obviously this augurs well for the nascent content marketing 'industry' in Australia.

In this episode Trevor discusses 11 excellent examples of content marketing from Australian brands - they include major blue-chip brands such as Telstra and Commonwealth Bank, fast-growing medium-sized enterprises such as Lorna Jane and Intrepid Travel, plus smaller companies including Open Wealth Creation and TrinityP3.

Ep 013 - The New Rules of Marketing & PR with Best-Selling Author, David Meerman Scott

29Sep

Author and professional speaker, David Meerman Scott, first published his seminal book 'The New Rules of Marketing & PR' back in 2007.


What hasn't changed in the past six or so years, David says, are the basic strategies of marketing in an ever-evolving hyper-connected world. What has changed are the tools that we use to publish our content on the web and engage with our audience.

In the years prior to launch when David was writing the book, Twitter wasn't up and running, Facebook was only for college students, while MySpace had four times the number of users as Facebook did back then, and "we had this weird thing called Second Life", David says in the interview.

Fast forward to the latest edition (the fourth) of the book and it has coverage of Twitter and Facebook naturally, but also the likes of Google+, Instagram and Pinterest.
