Debra is Google AdWords Qualified and Mediaglue is a Premier Google AdWords Partner.

As a coach and business consultant for more than 20 years, I’ve helped many of my clients maximise their results using my knowledge, skill and experience with sales copy, selling from stage, running events and hosting webinars

My roles as speaker and presenter have brought me face to face with many small business owners across many different industries and in businesses of varying sizes.

One of the commonalities with each of these owners is that while busy running things day to day, they’ve often struggled to be found on the very crowded platform that is the world wide web.

Their strengths and skills lie in running their operations so despite their best efforts, growing the business was a very real challenge simply because they just weren’t being seen online.

Having an intimate insight into that visibility issue led my husband James and I down the track of figuring out how we could help change that situation…

…how to use our expertise to help micro and small business owners grow their businesses to the point where the business could support their financial and lifestyle goals.

After testing Google AdWords for lead generation we were absolutely thrilled with the results, we could see first hand the difference Google Search Marketing was making.

We then became Premier Google AdWords Partners, establishing our digital marketing agency with the specific aim of getting micro and small businesses seen, heard and growing.

Our vision is to help take as many businesses as is humanly possible to the next growth phase…

…and then the next…

…and the next.

We are small business owners who understand that helping other businesses become more successful also helps us become more successful.

IGNITION ACCOUNTANTS

Contact : MICK ALCORN

I’m Mick Alcorn, a fully qualified public accountant and the founder of Ignition Accountants.

 

One of the reasons I started Ignition Accountants is because during my15 years experience in the industry I saw a lot of small business owners really struggling.

 

What I saw was frustration because of the inability to get the help and advice they were desperately looking for quickly and easily. The kind of financial advice they needed so they could grow their business to a point that was in alignment with their goals.

 

It was also very frustrating for me because with my knowledge of the industry and my qualifications I knew I could help these people to grow their businesses to meet their objectives.

 

These businesses were going through growth phases and needed personal attention and assistance appropriate for their particular stages of growth. Often that kind of personalised service is absent in larger accounting firms.

 

Fast forward to today and I am now in the happy position with Ignition Accountants where I am actually able to provide the backup, support and financial advice I have always wanted to give…

 

…and the results are exciting, something I am really proud of. What I’m seeing for my clients is:

 

            • Solid steady increasing turnover

            • Clear financial objectives

            • Targets consistently hit

            • New growth phases reached

            • Reduction in stress levels

            • Space & time to work ON their business rather than IN it

 

I believe it’s my responsibility as your accountant to help you grow your business and increase your profit.

 

That means advising and guiding you to set and achieve your goals, monitoring your progress, fine tuning plans to reflect changes in the law and helping you deal with the challenges that come with each new growth phase.

Hello, 

As a self employed professional with over 20 years experience in the financial services profession I have always had more personal approach to working with my clients. 

With a background in hospitality, I learned the people skills needed in life and after nearly 7 years in the Army, I learned to always "be ready" as life is a constant change. I bring that advice to my clients when we talk about their financial health. 

For most people, seeking the help of a financial planner usually occurs after a "life event" such as marraige, birth of children, buying property or in a lot of cases having close relatives or friends suffer from a trauma or critical event and seeing first hand the financial trauma that can come with such events. 

Ultimately, my clients are your children and grandchildre. 

My goal is to help them have a better life by making sure that my clients are better equipped to build a healthy financial life which enables them to live a happier life, with less stress and more financial confidence. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this, if you have any questions, please ask me. I don't bite. :)
