If you already have a LinkedIn profile, and are familiar with posting updates and building your network, are you now wondering what else can LinkedIn do for you?

Our first update shows you how to receive and provide recommendations.

Featuring in the North East England Chamber Knowledge blog, we explain why it is important to maintain marketing momentum, but also to keep an eye on the constantly evolving marketing tools, tactics and strategies.

Firms who invest in effective digital marketing such as social media, pay per click (PPC) and search engine optimisation (SEO) can often see great results within a relatively short space of time.

We are a specialist marketing, digital marketing and social media agency and business development consultancy working with you to attract ideal clients to your professional services firm.
