Lou Macdonald Social HeadshotHi I’m Louise Curwen Co Founder of IQ Online Marketing.

After over 20 years in teaching and two masters degrees, one in psychology the other in special education, I came to a crossroads and took the entrepreneurial route.   In 2008 I retrained as an NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) Master Practitioner and Coach.  To make ends meet while I set up my new business I started internet marketing, promoting other peoples products online for a commission.  It soon became apparent that I had a flair for online marketing and when I put this together with my new business things took off.

When other local business owners asked for advice and help with their websites I knew I was onto something and launched this as a stand alone service.

By 2012 online video was exploding in the online marketing world, I studied video production as well as marketing, putting the results into practice for my clients, with impressive results.  When Rosa graduated with a degree in Film and Video in 2013 we decided to merge my marketing skills with her advanced film skills and IQ Online Marketing was born.

 

RosaHi I’m Rosa Macdonald one of the Co Founders of IQ Online Marketing.

After a childhood dressing up and treading the boards in amateur dramatics at every possible oppertunity, I discovered film at an after school club when I was 15 and I was hooked! From that time I was determined to carve out a career behind the camera.

Fast forward to 2010 and I was fortunate enough to gain a place at a prestigious Skill Set degree course in Film and Video at the University of South Wales. Daily technical training and practical film making experience over three years confirmed my choice of career. I gained extensive experience operating an array of different cameras ranging from DSLRs to movie standard rigs and I specialized in editing in my final year, since graduating in 2013 I have been putting both these skills to good use in my work with IQ Online Marketing.
