Welcome to our Blog. Your one stop shop to keep up to date with all the latest goings on!!

It seems to be an ever increasing image of our High Streets, where ‘closing down’, ‘liquidation sale’ or ‘store closing’ signage still remains in an empty shell of a shop front.  The signage remains but there is no activity. 

This in a way has parallels with the many social media accounts we all view each week where the profile remains, but again, no activity.


Twitter Advertising has just stepped up a level. Seriously. True, Twitter’s quarterly results haven’t been exciting, more disappointing, but the release of their new TwitterAds certainly shows that the Social Media Network still has what it takes, but more importantly what Brands need. This new addition was originally tested by a number of selected brands earlier in the year ...

The UK has left the building! #Brexit now becomes #Brexited!

Sometimes we don’t always get the right advice from Social Media experts.  In fact some of what these gurus offer I’d probably class as a bit of a pork pie.  Maybe it’s not intentional; maybe just incompetence. 

We've put together three common misconceptions often fuelled by the mouths of Social Media experts...


Okay, I’m going to get this out of the way right now… “Engagement is the most important element of your social media!!!! You should be using social media to chat, discuss and network.”

Now I’ve said that, there’s a “however” coming…


It’s supposed to be easy. Well, it sounds like it should be.  You just start putting a few posts out on Instagram, a couple on Facebook each week and maybe three or four tweets each day.  How difficult is that?!?!  So simple you could give responsibility to your new apprentice.  A few weeks and there’ll be traffic speeding along to your website.

Being able to show return on investment for your social media  is probably more difficult than you think .... at least it is in monetary terms. Many of the bean counters will probably disagree, but return on investment on social media is not always something which can be shown by simply using a pound sign.   Gaining value from social media isn’t going to be the same at every ...
