Amanda Dodd

Social Media and Digital Marketing - Using it to benefit you and your students

Amanda Dodd is the owner and Creative Director of Koogar. Founded in 2006, they specialise in providing customised marketing services for companies that have a real passion for their business and want to see it grow. Amanda focuses on integrating a key mix of Digital and Traditional marketing that will push your brand to the next level.

Amanda has spent many years in marketing (since 1999), first starting out as a graphic designer working for major brands such as HSBC, Churchill and Argos. By its very nature, Digital Media is a fast changing element of the marketing mix. It requires continual education and development in order to deliver competitive results for clients. This has earned Amanda a reputation in the Northwest as an expert in Digital Marketing and is often asked to speak at seminars and workshops on the subject.

However much the digital elements are important, they are still just one part of the marketing mix. A company who seeks to develop and grow its brand to new heights needs a wholesome marketing approach. Traditional marketing has not 'left the building' - a successful and lasting marketing plan must incorporate a variety of components. Using specific coaching techniques, she gets to the heart of a company's business objectives and is able to quickly identify the path to growth.

Amanda works closely with her clients, preferring face-to-face meetings so that the plan is designed together. Amanda chooses to work with clients who are keen to take an active role in their brand's marketing - as ultimately their personal commitment is a key factor to its success.

Koogar, is never standing still; in order to deliver the latest marketing advice to clients, it requires commitment to change and development.

Testimonials from Teachers

“Amanda is a master at her craft. I first met her when I sat in the audience and watched her give a spellbinding presentation about the types and benefits of social media – and was so impressed by the practicality and depth of her knowledge that I immediately asked her to develop and deliver a series of two day master-classes on Digital Marketing and Social Media as part of the programme portfolio for the Executive Education business I ran. Those sessions went on to become some of the most highly rated and popular of our courses and several participants went on to engage Amanda personally as their Web Designer and marketing coach – with fantastic results. If you are looking for a passionate, engaging and knowledgeable speaker then look no further than Amanda Dodd. Highly recommended!”

– Phil Ryan, The Management Centre, Bangor, Wales

“Amanda wowed sixth form students when she visited Broughton Hall and made a presentation about digital media. Several students were keen to pursue careers in web design, digital marketing and use social media for business. Amanda offered practical and valuable advice which was relevant and easy to understand. Students were delighted to hear how a “real, live business woman” had made a success of doing something that she really enjoyed."

– Debbie Brisco, Business Manager, Broughton Hall, Liverpool​
