Background

Summary

I have from my days at College and University had a good ability of deconstructing different forms of media. Replicating genres of Films, Magazines and Documentaries. Progressing into Internet sales I got the sales bug progressing from an account manager to becoming a Sales manager.

Working for some of the North West founding Internet companies from the late 90's... When Lycos, Excite and Altavista were competing against Google.

The internet became a real interest and passion for me and that ability to deconstruct media from my college days has stood me on good stead and I have developed my own business. Starting in my back bedroom with £400 and a Dell desktop back in 2007 I was able to turn over a quarter of a million in my first year of trading.

Progressing into not just a search marketing company but form an all in one solution for companies we have become partners with other agencies in the North West and now offer a full service from Web design, Search Marketing and Social media.

Pushing the boundaries and always looking at emerging new developments in marketing that mainstream agencies dont tend to pickup for 3 to 5 years. I always like to keep ahead of the game with trends and developments.

Now providing services to 30 plus top agencies around the UK our service is now as good as it has ever been but we are always on the look out to learn and improve.
