Isn’t it time to take charge of your online business presence?

No more cobbled together, spot fire marketing – just 8 weeks of equipping you with the tools you need to turn your online presence into the client attraction engine your business deserves.


We are living in an age of unprecedented online opportunity.  

It has never been easier to start or continue to grow a business, yet in many respects, it has never seemed so hard. 

Many businesses are just not grabbing this opportunity with both hands.  It can seem a very overwhelming, scary and time-consuming task that can get pushed to the side. 

Too often I see this work being moved to the "one-day" pile.

Well one day never comes

It doesn't matter if you are a new startup or an established player, everyone needs the same thing.


  • Where do I start in the online world?
  • What do I need to know, really to help my business?
  • What can I do myself to save money and how do I implement it?
  • What can I give to someone else to do, to save me time in my business?

This course will give you the knowledge - and the results - that you need.

Who is this course for?

The Digital Ascent Program can be completed by anyone with an interest in Digital Marketing for Business. But, it is particularly helpful for the following people:

  • Business Owners
  • Marketers or salespeople inside a business
  • Graphic designers and web designers looking to expand their client offer in a more holistic way
  • The office go-to admin person who would like to grow their career
  • Communication specialists looking to improve their digital marketing skills
  • Anyone over the age of 35 - I love digital immigrants!
  • Anyone willing to try new things and new ways of doing things
  • Anyone who is willing to feel a little uncomfortable with technology at times
  • Anyone who has been in business for a while and needs to learn the new ways of doing things

How does it work?

8 weeks. Tailored, individual marketing and online business strategy. A personal guide for every step of the way. 

Over the course of the Digital Ascent program, I will share with you practical and proven methods that I have successfully implemented in my businesses, as well as many others just like yours. These are actionable strategies that have been key contributors to online business success and achievement of business objectives.

Module 1 - Base Camp

Get your bearings and map to the summit. We’ll take a reading of ALL your key data before we commence, and understand where the summit is. You’ll get all the checklists and handy tools you’ll need.

Module 2 - Digital Ecosystem

We’re on the path. First up, your Digital Ecosystem. What is it, why do you need it, and how to construct one so you can effectively plan for the future from a solid foundation

Module 3 - Web elements

Let’s look at why your current web elements aren’t working together to achieve optimal outcome for your business. Landing pages, email marketing, blogs and e-commerce, these elements should all come together to achieve your business goals 

Module 4 - Social

In-depth look at your Social Elements - Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn and Snapchat. We’ll walk you through automation, advertising and building your customers via a social community.

Module 5 - Content Marketing

We go deep into the content marketing elements you need and look at planning, implementation and timing to reduce feeling overwhelmed here. You will have the time.

Module 6 - Search marketing

It’s what will get you noticed on search engines - how can you increase your ranking, find out what content is working, what’s not and how to effectively buy more visibility in front of YOUR customers

Module 7 - Personal Branding

People buy from people they know, like and trust, so what does your online footprint say about you? How do help control this message?

Module 8 - Digital Strategy

Let’s turn all your hard work and dedication into action. We’ll show you how to compile your Digital Strategy so it’s ready for you to implement and achieve your objectives.

Digital Sherpa & CEO

I am the founder, CEO and Digital Sherpa of Adventure Digital - a marketing agency based in regional NSW, servicing clients all over the Australian eastern seaboard. I've made it my life's mission to help you grow a sustainable, enjoyable and profitable business. I have worked with many i...

Meet Leanne

Leanne O'Sullivan is amazing and I would recommend her to any business wanting to build and grow their social and digital marketing. I have completed a few of Leanne's social media courses and learnt so much in a very short period of time. I am grateful for all my new skills and confidence in an area of marketing that is constantly changing.

However, the most impressive work Leanne did was help me solve a Google SEO indexing and navigation problem that was seriously impacting on our google ranking we had effectively disappeared from google despite having a mobile friendly site and thinking we have all the necessary infrastructure in place. I had a few SEO experts advise I needed to optimize my site more, but it was not making any difference and our ranking was declining very fast. When I approached Leanne within 24 hours she had identified the problem and advised how to fix it and now we are clawing our ranking back up. With Leanne's expertise, advice and encouragement we are back on page one locally for our business and I didn't need to optimize anything on my site. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I’ve known and worked with Leanne for over 2 years - she has been a client of mine, I've recommended her to several of my clients and I've become a client myself! I'm constantly impressed by Leanne, she has that rare and invaluable combination of deep experience and expertise coupled with a commitment to staying on the absolute cutting edge of new knowledge and developments in the digital space.

Her Digital Ecosystem framework cuts through the potential overwhelm of the online world. She helps business owners deepen their message and stories and then seamlessly connects them with new audiences through their refined websites, social media, SEO and fabulous content. Leanne and her team make it so easy.

If you know you need to broaden your reach, increase your brand clarity and visibility and attract more of the right clients and customers, but feel somewhat mystified by the process (especially if you’re a “Digital Immigrant” rather than a native), I cannot recommend Leanne more highly to help you with those goals.
