I cannot recommend Evan Mangan and The Marketing Crowd highly enough. His skills at marketing are exceptional, but most importantly his ability to communicate the most complex information in a simple practical and accessible manner make him and The Marketing Crowd quite simply the best.
I attended a 6 week online marketing course and specific day courses on Facebook, Instagram and making online videos, run by the Marketing Crowd [through the Kerry LEO]. All of the courses were really excellent. The pace and content was well thought out, and Evan was very good at taking complex techy topics and condensing them into bite size chunks. There was also a lot of practical advice on equipment for a range of budgets, subscription services for website health checks and design apps. One of the most useful things I learned was search engine optimisation techniques and ways to help get found on google. The course notes which were provided after each session were fully detailed and I have regularly referred back to them as I’ve gone about getting my business up and running.
Just having done these courses, I have gone from someone who knew nothing about websites or social media, to running an online business, designing my own website, and doing all of my own social media marketing. Not only has this saved me money on not having to hire in experts, but also given me confidence to know I have sufficient control over the techy side of my business. Money well spent – I’d certainly recommend Evan and his team to others!
“I attended a number of courses run by Evan in the last couple of years. Evan's breadth of knowledge in the area of Digital Marketing is enormous. He has a very clear and patient style of teaching, suitable for everyone from beginners to advanced, in the area of digital marketing.
As soon as I heard about the launch of the Digital Marketing School, I immediately joined up. I was a little concerned that the online approach to teaching wouldn't be as effective as the in-person training had been. But all my apprehensions were dissipated from the very first session.
I would highly recommend the Digital Marketing School to anyone who has an online presence or who is thinking about going online. You will learn everything that you need for your journey, step by step, guided by Evan and it is amazing value for money and an investment in your future business that you will not regret.”
Brian Hogan - Digital Marketing Manager
"I really like Evan's approach to digital marketing; all of the content is presented in a clear and logical way which is easy to understand, and - more importantly - easy to apply to my business.
I have learned a great deal from the Digital Marketing School and I have more skills, confidence and focus now in terms of managing my business' digital marketing strategy."
“We highly recommend the Digital Marketing School. We have recently joined the school and the information we have received is fantastic. It is really making us rethink our digital marketing strategy and it is giving us the tools to do it. Looking forward to more of the live zoom sessions”
‘Evan was a great help in improving my SEO which I had neglected for too long. I now have all the bases covered. Evan’s on-line session was very clear and understandable, he explained both the logic and the steps to be taken, so I now have a good understanding myself of the basics required to ensure my website is both findable and receiving good Google Rankings. Evan is not just highly experienced and knowledgeable, he teaches people clearly, effectively and patiently, he has a great manner about him. Well worth the investment to get a great job done!’
“I attended two courses with Evan, Instagram for Business and the Social Media Bootcamp. I cannot recommend Evan more, he was so helpful during both courses and I picked up so many helpful tips. From selling our products on Instagram to editing product videos and getting seen on Google, he really helped me with everything. There was so much useful information in both courses which was emailed to us and it was such a relaxed environment which made it very easy to ask questions. If you are looking to expand your knowledge on Social Media, I would definitely recommend doing a course with The Marketing Crowd.”

I cannot praise Evan and his team enough for their help and expertise. The Marketing Crowd’s courses and training are excellent value for money. I had some one-to-one digital marketing guidance over the course of four months and all my sessions were conducted by teleconference. We’ve applied much of Evan’s training to our digital marketing plans at Tynan O’Donovan Solicitors with great results. The Marketing Crowd are an extremely professional, pleasant and approachable team. A five star marketing company!

I attended a one-to-one session with Evan recently which I found enlightening. I have to say that I was coming from a base of practically zero knowledge on SEO. I had naively thought that once a website was created, that all the work was done. It was an education to me to learn how SEO works and how it is vital to bring customers eyes to your business website. Even after just an hour I got a very good overall handle on how it works. I will be back soon for more training. Thanks again.
Margaret - Ethan House Killarney
Thank you is the first thing I’d like to say to Evan. Having done the 6 week Social Media Marketing Course and now continuing with 1-1 training I feel my business is in safe hands. Evan takes such a genuine interest in my fledgling business and shows me exactly what to do to help it grow, from subtle changes in the meta titles on my web site to how to prepare content that is interesting and that leads to sales. I would have been lost in this world of Social Media without Evan’s help. He makes it manageable and even easy. After each one to one session I have a lot of homework to do before the next session so Evan keeps me on track to get to my end goal. Go raibh míle míle maith agat Evan, le meas
Connie - Irish ICE Card
The information Evan gives is gold. I'm so happy I did this mentoring session for my business. Evan is used to working with both larger companies and SME's like myself and he knows intuitively what will help businesses who clamour to get found in our increasingly digital world. Highly recommend. Will be back.
Susan Browne, Wellness Coach www.lightlifelearning.com
"I have completed 1-1 SEO training with Evan. I would highly recommend The Marketing Crowd to any business owner who is keen in understanding the SEO and implementing it on their website. Evan is great in explaining how it works and he makes it easy to understand. He gives step by step guide on what has to be improved on the website to help with google ranking. I’m very happy I decided on training with him and excited about improving my website. I will definitely come back for more training. Thank you."
Joanna Kelly - Butterfly Furniture
"I have attended one-to-one mentoring with Evan on a few occasions in relation to SEO, websites and Facebook advertising which I found very informative and enlightening. Evan's knowledge is vast and he has a unique way of explaining things in user-friendly terms which is invaluable. Evan has a great ability to step into your business, give insight and suggest improvements. Evan's service is a great asset to any business who wants to master all things online."
Eileen Foley - Inner Healing Counselling
"How could I learn so much about making my own marketing videos in only 4 hours? As a beginner I thought I would be able to film the videos but was definitely not confident about using editing software as I perceived it to be very complicated. Evan’s expert and practical teaching accompanied by extensive notes for future reference gave me huge confidence and made this all straightforward. I was impressed by the quality of video that can easily be produced using a smart phone. I can see how video material of this standard will increase my sales by showing my target market that I am serious about giving them the best. 4 hours later we had made and edited a video! For anyone wanting to produce affordable video marketing content, take this course!"
Janice Tucker - Space To Relax
"I learned a lot from the Digital Marketing course. It was very thorough, excellent notes in advance and very helpful for me. There was a lot to take in but Evan explains things very clearly and expertly. I am still applying the learning to my website and the notes are a great resource. My website is much easier to find now! I'd highly recommend this course to anyone starting out in business who needs to promote themselves through website and social media."
Paul O'Raw - www.pauloraw.ie
"Excellent one to one coaching session - Evan explained things very clearly and I now understand how to improve our website. I highly recommend this coaching service "
Elaine Frattasi - Aim Driving
"Most informative and practical training delivered in a manner that was easy to understand. Excellent"
Joan Scanlon, CareerDecisionMaker.
"I recently had the opportunity to attend two courses on Digital Marketing provided by The Marketing Crowd and presented by Evan Mangan. I can highly recommend them, because they have that unique combination of an in-depth knowledge of their subject and the ability to communicate that in a clear and interesting manner. I came to the subject of Digital Marketing with close to a zero knowledge base and while I am still no expert, I have a profoundly better understanding of the subject now. I can do many things I did not even know about, and I have a good understanding of what possibilities exist in the digital age. A great course, well presented and very enjoyable."
Griffin Management Solutions
"I attended the Digital Marketing Course level 1 and level 2 in Tralee delivered by Evan and Id like to compliment him and The Marketing Crowd for a well delivered comprehensive, informative and logical 6 week course. Great advice and tips on all aspects including the use of free tools which helps any business on a budget. Learned a lot and would highly recommend this Course for any business big or small."
"We started Virgo Tyres in late 2013 and like many new e-commerce websites, we encountered several problems at the beginning. We had little knowledge about SEO, Website Design, etc. so it was then we decided to engage the one to one coaching services of The Marketing Crowd. It genuinely was the best business decision we ever made. Without any complicated terms or alarm bells, Evan very quickly got a handle on our problems and instigated a programme of corrective measures to rectify same. Before we knew it big problems turned into small problems. Each of our issues were broken down & explained, a plan was drawn up and we're thrilled with the results so far. We highly recommend The Marketing Crowd!"
Tadhg Fox - Virgo Tyres

Danielle Ball - Safe-T-Trainer
"The Internet Marketing Course was incredible value for money and has made a big difference to how we at Munster Business Centre view marketing via the internet. The training on how to use Facebook effectively as a tool had an instant effect on our Facebook page, with more likes and much more activity generally. The website training was equally beneficial and our site will hopefully reach many more people as a result. Evan has a knack for making it all simple and easy to understand."
Marianne Hofstedt - Munster Business centre
"Evan possesses indepth knowledge of this subject and delivers it very effectively. Great hand-out each week too for reference afterwards. Very worthwhile course."

Susan Harrington - The Siding Guesthouse
"Evan from the Marketing Crowd presented a great course in web site optimization therefore increasing maximum website performance on my web and blog sites which are now out-performing on every measure, traffic, speed and hits therefore more than compensating the return on my investment."
"I found this course excellent in many respects. Course content was very relevant and concise. Evan was clearly very experienced in the area and explained the content in a way which was easy to understand. The slides shown and the accompanying notes were well prepared and to the point. I would highly recommend "The Marketing Crowd" and Course Tutor Evan if you are interested in learning more about Internet Marketing."

Tom O'Riordan - Kerryblinds.ie
"I found the Internet Marketing Course excellent as it went into great detail on the main topics facing businesses in this digital age. Website SEO, social media and Google analytics were explained really well by Evan, who gave us lots of tips and showed us free resources available. I am benefiting a lot by what I learned on this course and I'm putting into practice the many cost saving and effective digital marketing strategies that Evan outlined. Along with being informative it was hands on as you implemented most of what you learned live on the computer provided. This re-inforced the topics covered and allowed you to test them directly to your website or business pages during the course with the backup of the instructor . This is the best 6 week day course to date I have done and I would highly recommend it for everyone."

"I have attended group and individual courses with Evan from The Marketing Crowd. These courses were like "light bulb" moments. Evan has a great ability to simplify and explain in the user's terms and language the workings and potential of various social media tools, SEO etc. His industry and business knowledge greatly complement the learning. Among the most relevant and valuable courses I have attended.
Eileen Ashe - Annascaul Black Pudding
"I did a one to one coaching session with Evan and I have to say that I found it hugely informative and interesting. Evan is very clear in how he explains something and has a great ability to look at your business as if it was his own and gives great insights and ideas.
The Coaching session I did was the one that explains how to use Facebook effectively, and already I have been able to put this into practise and have seen a positive in trying to raise the awareness of our company.
I have already signed up for the Digital marketing Course that he will give in July, unfortunately the one that is taking place in April is booked out, testament as to how good it must be!! Could not recommend Evan or his approach enough."
