As an award-winning Social Media Marketing Agency, who specialises in the complex world of paid digital advertising, it’s safe to assume that our team is the foundation to our success, and the very reason that we’re able to say that we sign over 10 new clients every month, we’ve generated over 8 million pounds in revenue and unrivalled client retention.
So this week we caught up with one of the integral members of our ad team, Tom Kieran our Ad Specialist here at the Affluent Agency.
Q. How did you come to be part of the Affluent Agency, and what is your role in the company?
Well, I started with Affluent.co as a student within the Affluent Academy! Not long after joining & completing the course I wanted to test my newfound skills within a role & to surround myself with like-minded people. I put a post out into the Affluent Academy Facebook community page, I essentially advertised myself as a free resource and as somebody that was uber keen to work hard and progress in my career. Joe Hides, Head of Operations then approached me on Instagram and the rest is history! I’ve been a part of the company for over 8 months now and I love every second of it!
My primary role here is to grow and scale digital advertising accounts for some of our biggest clients, I also work closely with each of them on their full-funnel build-out including website optimisation. I love that we work with our clients as an extension to their team and are able to create consistent revenue streams for fantastic businesses.
Q. What has been the most exciting part about working for Affluent.co so far?
I think the most exciting part of working with Affluent is watching the enthusiasm and confidence about everyone’s future and the vision that both Jordan and Joe have for the business. It’s not often that you get the opportunity to work for a company where every single member is excited about what they do and has the opportunity to learn and grow,
We’re certainly not ones to sit still & potter along at a mediocre pace, which is refreshing! Each month the growth is insane from new clients, to new team members it’s so exciting to be part of such a fantastic ambitious team! I believe the best is still yet to come from still such a young company.
Q. What are you excited about in your personal life and in your career?
Wow, so many thoughts come to mind! One that covers both my personal and career life is the ability to be able to travel again. I’m very fortunate that this job allows me to essentially work from anywhere, I’m lucky to have gained complete travel flexibility. I’ve always been someone who loves to meet new people, learn new cultures, and experience new things, so I would love to be able to “slow travel” around the world next year, hopefully staying in different places for months at a time, working as I go, meeting up with some of the clients we have across the globe and of course growing the Affluent brand along the way!
Q. What’s your favourite positive quote?
“The harder I work, the luckier I get” - Samuel Goldwyn.
