How to KNOW If Your Marketing Really Is Working

So Many People Aren't Sure If Their Marketing Really Works


VernonRiley_HiResVernon Riley knows exactly what works. Vernon for several year is my "go to" guy when it comes to knowing what works and what doesn't.  Vernon is a "reformed" engineer and very precise in all he does. He knows to several decimal places how well each page on a website performs and how to improve the page.  He also knows how to measure things that aren't on your website. Things like email responses or enquiries and even telephone calls.  He can even record all the likes, Retweets, page views, downloads, email open rates etc for you.  Better than that he is able to automate all this and give you the results on a single dashboard on your PC or mobile.     


Vernon also understands about Bounce rate.

Bounce rate is commonly misunderstood phrase.

 A bounce happens if someone who visits a single web page and exits without going anywhere else on your website. This can be the result of misconfiguration if GA isn't setup to recognize:

●          Your website has multiple domains.

●          You use a third party shopping cart.


With all the information Vernon gets you can plan effective marketing and not waste time on dross.


It will embarrass him when I say it but Vernon's talents are pure genius .. totally magic.


With this much expertise to hand I had to get Vernon to write a chapter for Creating Business Growth.


Here is what he says at the outset. "This chapter is in the "what to do" category. It's all about "how to discover" whether the marketing techniques you pick are working for your business. You can apply this information to each and every lead generation technique in this ebook. As well all the other marketing techniques that you may have tried or try in the future. It will also give you feedback on whether your "approach" is working for your business."

Now if you could discover how he does this you'd be mad not to read his chapter .. wouldn't you?


And if you can get a free copy .. it's a no brainer.

What our customers say

What Our Clients Say

As Principal I employed very few consultants but did employ Stefan on the basis of a clear ROI.

I would recommend him to any college, university, business or Government agency as a reliable consultant who will become indispensable.

Ioan Morgan CBE
Latterly FE College Principal & CEO,

He certainly does what he says on the tin...... I've worked with Stefan for many years and he has an uncanny knack of cutting through the ****, focussing on the essentials and coming up with creative and inexpensive marketing ideas that work.

David Morphew

Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity “Stefan was an expert on one of our recent teleseminars speaking about Marketing Secrets Revealed. He gave some fantastic value and gave some great tips that small business owners could use to apply to their businesses straight away. You can get a copy of the recording at I have no hesitation recommending Stefan and think he's great at marketing. It's certainly no accident that he's known as the Marketing Magician.

Helen Dowling

“Stefan was our speaker at a memorable CIM course recruitment event a few years ago. In an hour he covered a wide range of EMarketing topics giving the audience both inspiration and actions they could take with them to implement immediately. Even those that had recently completed marketing degrees commented how practical his advice was and how it clarified what they had previously only learnt in an academic way. Stefan's practical background as a marketing practitioner comes to the fore when he explains, not only what EMarketing is, but how to implement it in a practical way where the ROI can be measured.”.

Rosie Phipps, Principal, Oxford College of Marketing

“Apart from being a incredibly friendly and approachable person, Stefan has a wealth of knowledge in how to effectively market small and large businesses and has applied this knowledge with great success. In short Stefan is a real marketing guru!.

Steve Tipson

““Stefan Drew is a true marketing professional. I have no hesitation in recommending Stefan's marketing expertise. My first contact with Stefan was in 2009. The distance of our office locations (U.K. vs. Australia) did not concern me as it was evident from our first international phone call that my company was in good hands. 2010 presented the GFC which brought with it many marketing & financial challenges. By following Stefan's marketing plan to the letter I could never have imagined such a successful outcome for my business. Thank you Stefan.”.
