Why have Noisy Little Monkey chosen to get involved in this year’s Bath Digital Festival?

There was such a buzz of excitement around Bath Digital Festival last year that we knew we had to be involved when it returned in 2018.

We’re a sociable bunch so when we heard there was an excuse to get out in the Bath community, make some new friends and share a ton of digital marketing knowledge along the way we just couldn’t say no to being involved!

What was it about the ‘Business:Do’ category that you guys felt was relevant to Noisy Little Monkey?

Being a sponsor of the ‘Business:Do’ category was such an obvious fit for us because it means that we get to help local businesses with the practical application of some new digital marketing skills.

Part of Noisy Little Monkey’s MO is to share knowledge and best practice about all things digital marketing. We were founded 10 years ago because Jon wanted to prevent small businesses from being burned by shady SEO agencies and this is something we’ve embedded into our business practice today (the desire to teach and help people, not the shady SEO practice…)

We write regular blogs, create tons of helpful ebooks, host events and run training sessions to make sure that we’re doing our bit to skill-up the marketers of the South West.

If we leave Bath Digital Festival having inspired a small handful of people to improve their digital marketing strategies and make a real difference to their business, then we’ll consider our time well spent and our jobs well done. 

How can we find out more about Noisy Little Monkey?

If you want to know more about what we do and how we can help your digital marketing make a real impact on the bottom line of your business, you can check out the Noisy Little Monkey website.

We run regular digital marketing meet-ups in Bristol so if you want to ask us questions in real life, come along to a future event! If the thought of interacting with a human in real life makes you break out in a cold sweat, you can befriend us on social media instead. You’ll find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. We mainly post pictures of silly things we’re doing in the office (and the occasional bit of digital marketing advice).


James Mulvaney - Digital Marketing Executive

Tell us a bit about yourself and your role at Noisy Little Monkey

Hello, I’m James! I’m a Digital Marketing Executive at Noisy Little Monkey. Fundamentally, this means that I develop and deliver digital and inbound marketing campaigns to B2B clients which usually involves content marketing, social media, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and Pay Per Click (PPC).

The core to what I, and the Noisy Little Monkey team, do is to identify the highest impact digital marketing activities to your business and then execute the delivery and reporting of those activities. This will vary, depending on your business, from foundational website fixes to the more glamorous social campaigns and marketing automation.

What’s your talk at this year’s Bath Digital Festival about? Why have you chosen this particular title? 

On a personal level, most of us are suspicious of digital marketing and, in particular marketing automation. It’s the little gremlin that follows you around the internet, shoving unwanted ads in your face and clogging your inbox with automated junk. It’s probably the reason Trump’s in power, right?

My talk will explore, in unambiguous terms, one aspect of marketing automation: lead nurturing workflows. In doing so, I’ll attempt to banish some of the fear and loathing surrounding marketing automation whilst also revealing practical tips on how you can implement some simple automation that will increase the quality of leads delivered to your sales team.

How can people get in touch with you afterwards? 

Social media is not really my thing unless you’re sending a funny gif/meme. For these, you can use Twitter: @James_Mulvaney.

Gertie Goddard - Digital Marketing Executive

Tell us a bit about yourself and your role at Noisy Little Monkey

Having graduated in 2015 with a science degree, I would never have guessed I’d be working as a Digital Marketing Executive for Noisy Little Monkey in 2018! However, I’ve found my role and interests have been increasingly enveloped in the world of online marketing and SEO.

Not only have I worked with 10 incredibly diverse clients to build their presence online, but I’ve developed a few skills I never knew I had. For instance: interpreting and reporting data in Google Analytics, identifying quick wins for SEO and criticising poor user journeys. I also enjoy a good social media campaign and anything to do with photography, but I’ll stop going on!

What’s your talk at this year’s Bath Digital Festival about? Why have you chosen this particular title?

Your website is, essentially, your 24/7 customer service. It’s your brand image, online personality, and lead generation machine. Yet it never fails to astound me how many businesses fail to test or improve their user journey online, and this can yield some amazing results! Hence, in this talk I’ll be exploring some tests and best practices for your CTAs and landing pages, plus let you in on a few secrets that we discovered to boost our own website conversion rates.

How can people get in touch with you afterwards?

I’m on Twitter @GertieGoddard and on Instagram (although I mainly just share funky photos of Bristol here), but the best place to contact me for advice/business is email –
