DONAL WHELAN, MASTERING WORLD

Sourcing SEO and Digital Marketing training through Growth Stream has been the best investment we have ever made since the formation of Music HQ. In a digital world of endless "get to No 1 in Google" emails, it's hard to find a legitimate business that’ll talk to you straight and offer realistic results. Daniel’s approach at Growth Stream is perfect for anyone who wants to cut out all the BS. Daniel is always on hand to talk through any technical issues or a new idea.

MARTIN GODDARD, MUSIC HQ

Dan’s calming presence was so appreciated and he genuinely cared about my business. He is able to work with you to support you in understanding your own goals and how you can achieve them. He always took the time to discuss matters with me, no matter how busy he may have already been and responded to my queries swiftly, which as a start up were many.

FIONA WILLIAMS, LITTLE HAVEN

Dan provided consultancy support for our online marketing efforts particularly around SEO. He was extremely knowledgeable and also very helpful and and went above and beyond what I expected in terms of the quality of the work produced. Based on his recommendations we've been able really extend our reach in our online marketing without spending lots of money on advertising. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone looking for support with their online business development.

MATT ALBIGES, ALIGNED WITH LOVE

Thanks to the help from Dan and the team at Growth Stream we have really been able to grow our online presence. Dan has helped us with our online marketing, our digital appearance and to generally grow our business and raise our profile. Your input has helped our business for the better and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you.

Coaching & Mentoring

It's your business, and nobody knows your product or your customers better than you. But sometimes it's useful to have some extra input in the areas which you don't enjoy quite so much. If that's digital marketing and SEO then maybe we can help you out. Let's chat and find out.

About our coaching services

What do we mean by 'business coaching'?

In any discipline, a coach is someone who can help you get better at what you do best. They can guide you and motivate you in sharpening your own skills, as well as teaching you new ones.

A business coach, in particular, should be able to talk to you about all aspects of running your business and provide value in all your discussions. They should not spend the whole time talking. Instead, they should ask you lots of questions and help you to find the right answers for your business. They will also be suitably qualified to answer your own questions. You should expect your coach to be inspiring and make you want to work hard and get results for yourself.

The process usually begins with both parties working together to formulate a plan for future growth. With Growth Stream, this probably means online growth. Once the plan is in place, you you can expect objectivity and honesty as well as encouragement. A good coach won't tell you you're right if they think you're not. That's a waste of your time and money. They will also provide a degree of accountability: if you're not sticking to the plan, your coach should help you to see the risks and rewards of deviating, and maybe help you to draw up a new plan.

A business coach will help you and your business to grow together quickly and sustainably. With input from an effective coach, you should be able to work efficiently and keep your passion alive.

What's the difference between coaching and consulting?

Coaching, consulting, advising, mentoring. They're all very similar services and there is a lot of overlap between them. But, for us at Growth Stream, there is one main difference between coaching and consulting.

A coach is there to help you decide what to do and plan how it should be done. It's then up to you to do it, and they can help you along the way by providing a degree of accountability. They will have lots of specialist knowledge and can offer plenty of useful advice. But they will offer more guidance than instructions, and they won't do the work for you.

A consultant, by contrast, is there to have the answers or to do the job for you. Maybe even both. They can certainly offer advice and sometimes encouragement, too. But their main role is to help you complete a specific task which, for whatever reason, you don't want to carry out yourself. For example, a consultant could review and critique your sales funnel or train your in-house marketing team. A coach would not be suitable for either of those jobs.

Who will be my business coach?

Growth Stream business coaching is provided by company founder, Daniel Pressley. He has spent the last decade helping small business to grow by harnessing the power of SEO and digital marketing. No gimmicks, no BS. He doesn't want to be your guru and his Instagram is rubbish. But he is absolutely juiced about helping small businesses grow and he's very good at it. He does this by combining honest, practical advice with specialist knowledge and a battle-tested blueprint for growth. To find out more about Daniel, check out our backstory.

How does it work and what do I get?

After a free initial consultation call, you tell us what works best for you. It could be one single session or a long-term arrangement. We can meet online or in person (in or around Cardiff). You can ask lots of questions and scribble down all the answers as we go, or you can follow our battle-tested blueprint for growth one step at a time. We can focus on SEO and digital marketing, or we can range across all aspects of small business growth. It's all completely up to you. Coaching can last one hour or can run for several months or longer. It's your call, just let us know what you need.

What is the cost of business coaching?

We offer a free 20-minute consultation call to give you chance to decide whether Growth Stream is right for you. After that, prices vary according to the number and length of sessions you're looking to book. Our quick-fix coaching sessions are available for as little as £200.

  • Free 20-minute consultation call
  • Remote or face-to-face meetings
  • Direct access to our blueprint for growth
  • One-off or ongoing sessions
  • Technical Q&A and training
  • General business advice

SEO Consulting

We believe that SEO is best done by the people who have the industry-insider knowledge and the personal contacts. That's you. What's usually missing is technical know-how, a proven strategy and a maybe project manager. That's where we come in.

About our consulting services

What do we mean by 'consulting'?

To us, a business consultant is someone you hire to solve a specific problem. Unlike a coach, you hire a consultant based on their own specific hands-on skills, i.e. their ability to do something on your behalf. You may learn a lot from them, but they're not there to change your performance. Rather, a consultant should deliver a specific outcome for you and then move on.

At Growth Stream, we are experts in search engine optimisation and most people hire us to consult for them within the fields of SEO and digital marketing. We're very flexible in how we operate: we can do the job for you, we can show you how to get the same results for yourself, or we can lead your in-house team to make sure they know what to do for next time. Just let us know what works for you.

Can I get consulting in other areas, too?

Yes! Our specialisms are search engine optimisation and digital marketing. But, if your business has or needs a website, we can probably help you make it grow more quickly and sustainably. Click here to see a few of our other skills.

How does it work and what do I get?

It's really flexible and you should tell us what works best for you. Consulting can last a few hours or a few months, it really depends on the size of the job. We will work with you at the start to establish the scale of the task.

Consulting can be done remotely on in person. Common consulting jobs include getting a website to rank in Google for a specific set of keywords (SEO); improving the conversion rates of an existing website; coordinating the different strands of a company's digital marketing; and developing a strategy for just one or two of those strands, e.g. email marketing.

On the day, we can bring in a team to do the job for you; we can project manage and lead your in-house staff; or we can just advise and let you get on with it. Whatever works for you.

Fair warning: if we don't think that our approach will get you the results you want, we will say so from the start. That's important to us because we are very proud of our record. Every time we have agreed to get a website to the top of Google, we have succeeded.

Why Growth Stream?

Why us? One simple reason: you want to grow your business online and we have a step-by-step playbook for making that happen. Best of all, it's backed up by a decade of real results. We have helped businesses like yours many times before and we're very good at it. Check out our backstory for details.

If you choose Growth Stream's consulting services, you will be shortcutting a decade of hands-on learning by bringing in our founder, Dr. Daniel Pressley, to call the plays for you. Dan has been super-gluing websites to the top of Google since 2009 and he can do the same for you. Along the way, he can teach you how to maintain that position to secure sustainable, long-term growth.

Of course, SEO is only one piece of the puzzle. And we don't recommend that clients over-rely on one traffic source. At Growth Stream, we can help you diversify your marketing funnel by introducing or enhancing the other aspects of digital marketing. We can help you with Conversion Rates Optimisation, web development, PPA advertising, email marketing, local search, copywriting and more. Click here to see some of the ways we might be able to help you.

How much does SEO consulting cost?

We offer a free 20-minute consultation call to give you chance to decide whether Growth Stream is right for you. After that, prices vary according to the task at hand. You should expect to pay £500-1000 per day. If you're just looking to pick an expert's brains, our quick-fix sessions are available for as little as £200.

Who else hires Growth Stream for training?

We teach everyone from day-one beginners to experienced SEO and marketing professionals. Perhaps you're a solopreneur looking to do your own SEO and digital marketing. We have the playbook you need and can guide you through it one step at a time.

Maybe you're a manager wanting to keep a more informed eye on your in-house or external SEO team. We can teach you all the fundamentals you need to make sure they're not marking their own homework. If you're recruiting marketing staff or an outside agency, we can give you all the interview questions they were hoping to avoid.

Perhaps you're a freelancer looking to upskill and increase your value. We can show you everything a copywriter and web developer should know about SEO, CRO and all other aspects of digital marketing.

Or are you an industry professional? If so, you're very welcome and we don't hold out. We're happy to share our tactics and we don't mind tricky questions. If we don't know the answer, we will just say so (and email you the details later). We'd recommend you go for one of our advanced sessions, though, for the sake of everyone else. Or just give us a call and we can swap ideas over coffee some time.

What are our qualifications?

If you like flashy certificates, then ask our founder and head trainer to dig out his PhD. But, if Growth Stream is right for you, then you won't be very impressed by that. The only qualification that matters in SEO is your track record, and we have been riveting websites to the top of Google since 2009. If you want to know how we do it, then that's what we will teach you. To find out more about our record, check out our backstory.

Can I book a private training event?

Yes. We offer public and private training events. If you want us to come in and teach your team, just let us know and we can guide you through the whole process. If you are looking for a long-term or recurring course, tell us what you have in mind and we will see what we can do for you on price.

Why choose Growth Stream?

What we offer is not for everyone, but it's perfect if you're a small business looking to grow. There's no qualification or certificate of attendance. Instead, what you get is an actionable playbook for growth, backed up by real-world examples which were experienced first-hand by the person who is teaching you.

If you're more interested in the more abstract, academic side of SEO, for example, this might not be for you. We won't be reading any Google patent applications.

We will teach you what you need to know to do SEO and digital marketing for yourself. Starting right away. We believe that you are better placed to get results than most agencies. After all, you have the product knowledge, the industry contacts and, most importantly, the passion to make it happen. Our training is designed to give you the two missing pieces of the puzzle: the key skills and the gameplan.


How much does training cost?

Our public training events are priced individually. If you would like to book a bespoke, in-house training session for you and your team, we offer a free 20-minute consultation call to give you chance to decide whether Growth Stream is right for you. After that, prices start from £1,500 per day.

  • Open public or in-house events
  • Remote or face-to-face sessions
  • One-off session or extended course
  • Beginner to advanced levels
  • SEO & digitial marketing specialists
  • Traditional marketing also covered

Speaking & Podcast Appearances

Unfiltered, unvarnished, here is roughly what our founder, Daniel Pressley, will say if you book him to speak for your event or podcast. What works for Tesco and GoCompare probably won't work the same for your new startup. In honesty, an SEO or digital agency won't always be the best option either. But we know what will work and we don't keep secrets. Grab something to write with and let's do this.

About our speaking

Our founder and outside speaker, Dr. Daniel Pressley, is a specialist in SEO and digital marketing as well as consumer psychology. If you are organising a conference or event for SMEs who are looking to grow, we'll stick our necks out and make this one prediction.

If you book a session called "what it really takes to get your own website to the top of Google this year", the room will be full of eager note-takers. That's what we can offer. No jargon, no abstract theory, no BS. We offer practical, actionable information which is useful to small businesses who are taking their future growth into their own hands.
