Trusting Your Gut- Dorothy Illson

The Free Time Podcast

We all have that little voice in the pit of our stomach that works tirelessly to steer us towards choices that place us on a path of true happiness and fulfillment. Yet, when push comes to shove, our gut instincts tend to get drowned out by a more ‘rational’ voice… the voice of our conscious minds that often tell us to fall in line and stay on the straight and narrow of belief systems that have been widely accepted by society or popular culture.On today’s episode, Dorothy Illson, founder of the Do Well, Do Good Podcast, sits down to share her story about the power behind following her gut and staying true to herself. She explains exactly how she went from turning in her letter of resignation at a Fortune 500 company just two weeks after her college graduation, to taking a MASSIVE leap of faith, joining the start-up world, and ultimately founding her company Needle Eye’s Media. Dorothy breaks down the power behind asking ourselves better questions, and how we can build a stronger mindset to help us create great success and leverage it as a contribution to the world.This is a great episode for anyone who is curious about how to step up and confidently take a stand for what you really want out of life, and how to go after it.Follow Dorothy on Instagram @dorothyillson and check out http://www.needleseyemedia.com/ for more about her and her company’s mission!Also, I'd love to connect with you and hear more about what you'd like to see from the show going forward!

020. Do Well & Do Good with Dorothy Illson.

Taste For Tenacity

This week on the show I’m joined by Dorothy Illson. After discovering personal development and diving in, she shifted from a career path as an accountant, which is traditionally a stable career path. And instead became the third employee at an early stage startup, which is not at all a stable path. So after helping scale the business to 6 million in revenue in three and a half years, Dorothy actually left and founded a full-service digital marketing agency called Needles Media. She is now the premier media buying partner for large personal brands and other digital product businesses. She’s also the host of “Do Well & Do Good.”

#041 Dorothy Illson | Profitable Facebook Ads

Brands On Brands | Personal Branding & Content Marketing

Dorothy Illson is a speaker, entrepreneur, and founder of Needle’s Eye Media, an advertising management agency that helps customers get the most online visibility for their dollar. She also hosts Do Well & Do Good, a podcast where she asks other entrepreneurs how they’ve achieved professional and personal success while still contributing to the community. Dorothy believes financial growth is a vital ingredient to having a positive effect on the world at large. In this episode, Dorothy explains how she found her calling in the world of ad management and explains how she was able to bring in clients when starting her business. She also dishes some important tips for making the most of your own Facebook ads. The Finer Details of This Episode: How Dorothy’s agency helps its clients get on top of their ad game and optimize the traffic coming to their sites. What is “paid traffic” and what does it mean to a rising entrepreneur? Why Dorothy realized accounting wasn’t the career for her and what drew her to the world of ad management. The reason a good grasp of numbers can go a longer way than good copy in the advertising game. Dorothy’s secret for finding clients in the early days of her agency. Dorothy’s core lessons for entrepreneurs looking to implement Facebook ads into their marketing strategy. Why you never want to send paid traffic directly to your homepage. Building an avatar for your ideal customer to understand what they want and how you can best deliver it. Why big brands with big advertising budgets are surprisingly not as effective with regards to paid traffic. The reason Dorothy trusts personal brands more than the larger, more well-known ones. Quotes: “I was able to really get experience and taste a lot of different areas of marketing.” “You really need to let your ego quiet down a little bit and just have the guts to ask for help.” “The best way to build a business is by creating raving fans out of your clients and customers who are then gonna tell people about you.” “It’s not just about getting clients, it’s about delivering to an extremely high level so that those clients are gonna keep coming and coming.” “Give people what you promised them and make it so valuable that they are gonna start to build that Know, Like and Trust factor that’s gonna lead to a sale.” “The brands that I trust the most are the brands built around people.” Mentions: Moink, AdSkills, Chris Harder, Gerard Adams Guest Links:Needle’s Eye Media - https://www.needleseyemedia.com/ Do Well & Do Good - http://dowellanddogood.co/ Dorothy on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/dorothyillson/ Dorothy on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/dorothyillson/ Visit Brandon’s website at www.BrandsOnBrandsOnBrands.com Join the Brand Growth Community on Facebook at www.brandonbrands.com/community And please leave a rating and review on iTunes!
