Michael Oldroyd – Chief Marketing Officer
Mike brings a knowledge of business to business lead generation to ROARlocal. He’s has a background that encompasses over 15 years of technical sales and marketing roles in the IT industry having held business development, account manager and sales management roles for Impact Data, ProActive Services, Civica and Learning Tree international.
His exceptional sales career has mainly been with small organisations where there has often been little or no effective marketing activity. Therefore, in order to meet his personal and team targets, Mike taught himself a range of ‘low cost – no cost’ marketing, sales lead generation, business growth and profit making principles and strategies that create outstanding results.
These highly sought after tactics are not generally taught through traditional business education, or at business school, on marketing degrees or on any known MBA course. His expertise of scientific advertising methods can quickly bring more visitors to any business or website. He then uses conversion techniques so more of these visitors become profit making customers.
Michael now applies his strategies at ROARlocal and makes them freely available for our clients to benefit and profit from.
