This week on the Exposure Ninja Digital Marketing Podcast, Tim is joined by his birthday twin, Azeem Ahmad from Staffordshire University. As a frequent speaker at events like BrightonSEO, and having worked with both client and agencies alike, it’s safe to say that Azeem knows his stuff when it comes to digital marketing.
Just in case you don’t get the pleasure of bumping into Azeem at an industry get-together, we’ve grabbed him for a chat. And if you’re looking to reduce your CPA, you’re in the right place. Using his university experience, Azeem talks us through how to manage Paid Ads on a low-scale budget (not to mention in a competitive and seasonal market).
In this episode, Azeem tells us how he analysed user journeys and behaviours to determine which months proved to be most profitable for Staffordshire University. This vital information helped Azeem get ahead of the competition, tailoring content to prospective leads at the right time of year.
So, take a listen today and discover how you could use similar techniques to find out which times of the year are most profitable for your business.
