Keeping up to date with the fast evolving world of marketing is something that we take very seriously. If we don’t keep abreast of all the new shiny gizmos how can we ensure we are doing the best possible job for our clients?
We will use the blog as a place to comment on the hottest marketing concepts - from the newest social media platform to the latest thinking on SEO. This will be where we share our marketing expertise and love for all things marketing. And of course where we will have the occasional rant (or perhaps that should be bleat!)
Our very own Marketing Soapbox!

500 Words... Are you ready for an adventure?
Anyone who regularly listens to the Chris Evans Breakfast Show on Radio 2 in the mornings will not have missed the recent call for entries for the annual 500 Words competition.
The competition was started 7 years ago by the DJ in a bid to get children excited about reading and writing. Over three quarters of a million children have written and submitted a story since the competition began with nearly 132,000 entries in 2017. Impressive statistics.
Everyone has different opinions of how soon is “too soon” when it comes to Christmas. Some people start to get excited for the run up to Christmas as soon as autumn arrives, whereas others don’t even want to think about the big “C” word until December comes around.
Regardless of where you stand with it, one thing we all may be starting to notice are the Christmas adverts that are beginning to grace our TV screens. One advert that has caught our eye in particular is M&S’s “Paddington and the Christmas visitor”.
Paddington - The Power of Emotion in Marketing
Social Media Stripped - Our Favourites
For a lot of people, the social media oldies would have included platforms such as MySpace, YouTube and Bebo. Oh, how to go back to the days where your biggest worries were who to have on your top 16 Bebo friends and the betrayal of your friends beginning to leave Bebo for Facebook!
Beyond the “noughties” nostalgia, over the years we have seen social media platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and Pinterest grace the internet.
Currently there are 3.03 billion active social media users around the globe with each user averaging 7.6 different accounts.
Missed the Mark? It's Never Too Late
As humans, we all have a psychological hold on starting something at the beginning of a time period – the beginning of a week, the beginning of a month or the beginning of a year. We don’t hear of many diets starting on a Thursday now do we? (Unless it’s New Year’s Day!)
Inspiration – is it a problem for you?
When Yasmin and I are working with clients or talking to business owners at networking events the issue of content creation appears to be a common thread and a particularly challenging one.
When it comes to Valentine’s Day what is your “go to” gift?
£1.6 billion was spent in the UK alone on Valentine’s Day in 2016! That is a staggering amount when you think about it. But do you know what doesn’t have to cost you that much this Valentine’s Day? Your marketing budget.
