About Georgia Bradbury

It’s not always easy creating a killer content marketing campaign. Most of the time, it requires months of trial and error. You’ll write one great blog, maybe two, and then you’ll wonder why your site traffic dipped all of a sudden. Or maybe your infographics share well on social media, but your blogs fall by […]

About Rachel Murray

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) has endured some pretty bad PR recently. And the content marketing sector is partially to blame. We’ve all been guilty of propagating ‘content is king’ – as if other marketing techniques, like PR, social media, and (most importantly) SEO, are second-class citizens in the marketing monopoly. The problem with the ‘content […]

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, only one creature was stirring, and he wasn’t a mouse.

About Chris Duszczyk

Before developing it into a successful broadsheet with a projected daily circulation of 1,865,315, amassing 1,150 departmental staff in an office on Manhattan’s Eighth Avenue along the way. […]

About Andrew Williams

There used to be a time when the only way you could judge the success of a certain marketing campaign was either through conversions (sales), or through focus groups where agencies would ask the opinion of those who had witnessed the advertisement. This of course, was before the digital age and while those two parameters […]

About Online Ventures Group

  Change is inevitable, and whether it’s for better or worse, there’s not much a mere mortal like you or me can do about it. People are very vocal about change, just by seeing the reaction to online streaming provider Netflix changing their logo, or by observing the outcry when Facebook decide to tweak their […]

Content is one of the most important things a business can produce. You could have developed one of the most amazing products in the world, but with no content to explain what it is and who you are, it’s more likely than not that your existence and product will be ignored. There are different ways […]
