What Makes Rikki Lear?

Subscribe

Joining me this week on the Azeem Digital Asks podcast is the fantastic Rikki Lear, Director of Digital 22, a specialist HubSpot agency, based in the UK. 

To put it quite simply, you should ABSOLUTELY listen to this episode – Rikki is incredibly open, and honest – and shares all of the highs, and some of the lows that he’s experienced throughout his career. He talks about the difficulties of looking after an agency during COVID, and shares some incredibly useful advice that pretty much everyone in the industry I think would benefit from.

Rikki also shares the story behind how Digital 22 started, which (when I heard it) had me in tears of laughter. He’s genuinely a nice guy, and I’d strongly recommend hearing his story.

What Makes Andrea Cruz?

My guest on the Azeem Digital Asks podcast this week is the incredible Andrea Cruz. She’s the Digital Marketing Manager at KoMarketing, a conference speaker, corgi mom, and most importantly – listed TWICE as one of the top 50 most influential PPC experts to follow by PPC Hero. 

In this episode, we discuss which of her previous and current colleagues are a big source of inspiration for her, what she really values and enjoys about the digital marketing industry, which publications and podcasts she uses to stay on top of the industry daily, and much, much more. It’s a real pleasure for me to have someone I look up to in the PPC industry join me on the show.

What Makes Luke Cope?

To mark hitting episode 10 of the Azeem Digital Asks podcast, I’m doing a double release this week, and it’s a Rise at Seven special! First up, my guest is the absolutely brilliant Luke Cope. Luke is the Head of Digital Strategy at Rise at Seven (he just got promoted yesterday – so a HUGE congratulations to you Luke!), and he shares a lot of knowledge from his years in the industry.

You won’t want to miss this episode, because he shares about how he met Carrie and Stephen from Rise at Seven, and quit his job as Head of Digital at another agency THE NEXT DAY, to (in his own words) “guilt trip” them into hiring him.

Luke is very open and honest in this episode, and shares some of his successes, and failures, and talks quite candidly about impostor syndrome too.

Azeem Digital Asks X SEO SAS Podcast

When podcasts collide! In an absolute first for the podcast, I’m joined by TWO guests, the incredible Sarah and Hannah, co-hosts of the wonderful SEO SAS Podcast.

We have a great conversation about how they began their podcast, how they feel about becoming co-workers, and they also share some really useful tips that can help you become better marketers. We also get to the bottom of why one of them had their eyebrows done – for a podcast – you read that right.

It was an absolute pleasure to record this with two brilliant people who have a lot to share about their past experiences and how it helped them to become who they are today, this episode (I think!) is guaranteed to brighten up your day. 

As always, if you enjoyed this, and other episodes – please like, share, rate and subscribe – it really helps!
