Hi, my name is Lilach Bullock and I am a digital marketing consultant and trainer, social media expert and professional speaker.
Among my list of social proof, I’ve been listed in Forbes as one of the top 20 women social media influencers, named the number one top digital marketing influencer by Career Experts in the UK and won the title of Social Influencer of Europe by Oracle. I’ve attended 10 Downing St. for Best Mumpreneur of the Year and have been awarded a Global Women Champion Award for my outstanding contribution and leadership in business from the Global Connections for Women Foundation.
I’ve also been a judge as well as a presenter and panel participant at events all across the globe – did I mention how much I love to chat?
The books I’ve written have hit the number one spot on Amazon in the Sales and Marketing category, as well as the Small Business and Entrepreneurship category, and I’m often featured in Forbes, The Telegraph, Wired, Prima Magazine, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Kissmetrics, Social Media Today and Radio 5 live – but I think that’s enough of my bragging rights:)
Where I started and where I am now
I started my first business, asklilach, back in 2006 – can’t believe how long it’s been! Although I loved it, it was all a bit of a whirlwind and as I was also using social media to assist my clients at the time, I noticed the huge potential of social media in marketing.
So, in 2009, I decided to sell my business to focus on creating a software tool to bring total social media management under the roof. At the time, there was nothing like that yet on the market – it was the perfect time.
Unfortunately, it turned out to be my biggest nightmare – with investors backing me and lots of money invested in software developments, I was badly let down by developers, three times! Even though I had to admit defeat on this project, I learned a lot from it – and it helped me take my career to the next step.
Still loving social media and digital marketing in general, I went on to co-found an international digital marketing agency. It was an amazing experience and one that taught me a lot about myself and business.
I managed to develop a multi-site blog and online marketing portfolio that generated in excess of 600,000+ visitors per month. And although I loved it and enjoyed working with big brands, I realised it wasn’t what I really wanted; because my goal had always been, from the beginning in 2006, to find a good work-life balance, where I could support my daughter Emily, but also be there with her every step of the way as she grows.
So now I’ve come full circle. I’ve got my own business, and I’m doing what I want to do: work with small businesses, entrepreneurs, start-ups and charities, with those inspiring and driven people who get on and make it happen, who have a real passion for making a difference.
Social media has helped me a lot over the years and has opened up huge opportunities for me. In fact, over the last three years, all my business has come directly to me or been referred to me, because of my social media reputation or the work I have done with clients. If you want to use social media and online marketing to open up opportunities for you then call me on 07590 554292 or email me to have a chat.
