Coaching, consulting and training for proudly independent businesses. We offer battle-tested strategies for turning great ideas into success stories.

Become your own digital marketing and SEO consultant

A lot of small businesses get edged out when it comes to SEO and digital marketing because they're not sure where to start or who to trust. Growth Stream gives you the skills and strategies you need to unlock your own growth potential online so you can claim your rightful position in the marketplace and take your message to the world.

If you love what you do...

Then share it with the world

Lots of small businesses treat marketing as the job they do last, if there is enough time left. That's why 58% of Welsh businesses don't survive the first five years. For a decade now, we have been helping independent businesses make sure the customers turn up. It's not rocket science. But we treat it as the most important job for any entrepreneur who's serious about growth. And we can show you how.

Our services for solopreneurs

Larger businesses usually ask us to come in and do the work for them on a consultancy basis. And we offer this service for micro businesses, too. But the most common thing that solopreneurs say to us is "teach me how to do it" and then "check I'm doing it right". In other words, training and coaching.

Training

Public events or private one-to-one sessions. Learn everything you need to know about SEO and digital marketing, from Day One basics to advanced super-user techniques. This is not abstract theory. You will be learning from the battle-tested playbook that we have been fine-tuning for a decade. More about our training...

Coaching

A coach is someone who can help you get better at what you do. If that involves SEO and digital marketing, we can help you get there faster. We've taken the same journey many times before and we know where the potholes are. Attracting an audience online is not rocket science and it's not a magic trick. It's a process. And we have a formula that works every time. More about our coaching...

Your journey to unstoppable growth

Data-driven gap analysis

We use real data to map out the quickest route from where you are now to where you want to be. What's working for you already online, and what's falling short? Where are your rivals scoring? Who is your dream customer and where can we find them? Expect real numbers, clear outcomes and a detailed roadmap.

Map out an SEO strategy

One reason that SEO isn't right for everyone is the amount of time it takes. It's not a quick fix, and you can't dabble your way to page one of Google. So, if climbing Google is the right move for you, then we will get started right away. We can train and coach you through each step of the process. Or, alternatively, we can do the spade work for you on a consultancy basis.

Mend the leaky bucket

Every website loses traffic, and we will never convert every visitor into a paying customer. But we can provide a data-driven analysis that shows where, when and why people leave your website without converting into buyers or followers. Improving your conversion rate is quick and easy, and it increases the ROI on everything else you do. So, 'mending the leaky bucket' is perhaps the best value-for-money upgrade you can make to your business online.

Future-proof your online growth

To make your online growth sustainable, you will need a diverse spread of traffic sources. In other words, lots of customers finding you in lots of different ways. That way, if anything unexpected happens to one traffic source, the others will keep you going. Paid advertising, local search, social media - click here for a list of what we can help you with.

Stay connected with customers

For a business which offers great customer experiences, the best future prospects are your past customers. Using a mix of traditional and digital marketing, we can help you 'preframe' your customers to want and expect a repeat-business relationship. Then, we can help you stay on their radar by retargeting them online. That means bringing them back, again and again. Finally, we can help you automate your customer relations so that you can deliver an ever better service without ever needing to bring in extra staff.

We can show you how to get people talking about you online and how to get the reviews that will separate you from your rivals.

A little bit about us

What is Growth Stream?

Who we are

Growth Stream is a new name for us. But we have been putting rocket boosters on small businesses for over a decade now. Our specialism is online growth. In a nutshell, that means doing whatever it takes to help you find your customers and turn them into fans. Check out our backstory here...

What we do

We are experts at websites, search engine optimisation and digital marketing. Most businesses contact us because we can get them to the top of Google and keep them there. But that's just one piece of the puzzle. Successful businesses stay with us because our blueprint for growth also includes local search, advertising, web development, copywriting, social media, email marketing and more. Read about our services...

How we work

We offer a combination of business coaching, consulting and training courses, as well as conference speaking. We're really flexible - just let us know what you need.

Cut through the Jargon

What does Digital Marketing mean to us?

Search Engine Optimisation

Search Engine Optimisation

SEO means getting to the top of Google's search rankings (for the right keywords) and staying there. We have a decade of experience in securing position #1 rankings and we can show you the formula. Being a bit nerdy helps. Being passionate about your organisation's growth is a must.

Local Search

If you have a front door and you want customers to walk through it, that's what local search is for. Also known as Google Places or Google Maps. It's what happens when you search for "coffee shop near me" and three minutes later you have a cappuccino moustache and a caffeine buzz.

Pay Per Action

Also known as Pay Per Click. Simply put, it's advertising your services on Google, social media and third-party websites. Our job is to show you how to get value. Done badly, online adverts are a money pit. But if they're done right, they're not a cost, they're an easy way to make money.

Web Design & Development

Building a website can take a weekend or a year. And making it look pretty is the easy part. The challenge is creating a site that is still impresses you at year end, not just on launch day. We've built more websites than we can remember and we can guide you through the whole process.

Copywriting business consultant

Copywriting

Think writing is obsolete? Well, keep reading and think again. From product descriptions to podcast intros, there is still no substitute for well-written language. If you want your message to cut through the background noise, you will need strong, persuasive copy that has impact.

Digital marketing hashtag for social media

Social Media Strategy

Which social media channels should you use and how much time should you invest? Where do your customers congregate online and how do you join the conversation? To answer these questions, you need a well honed marketing plan. Luckily, we can help you with all of the above #winning.

Conversion rates optimisation

Conversion Rates Optimisation

You have a website and it is attracting visitors, so your marketing plan is working. The next task is to fine-tune the website to make sure that the casual browsers become customers and then raving fans. In the industry, that process is called conversion rates optimisation.

Email marketing

Email Marketing

Done right, newsletters are a homing beacon for loyal followers. Done wrong, they're just more unopened spam. We've been delivering successful email-marketing campaigns since 2013 and we have a formula that works, even in the age of GDPR. We found your customers, now let's keep them.

Content marketing megaphone

Content Marketing

Today's online customers expect to receive value from a brand before they make a purchase. By producing great content, you can familiarise potential customers with your brand while showcasing your value. Find your audience, earn their trust, boost sales. We'll walk you through it.
