Don't rest on your laurels with marketing - Featured in the NEECC Knowldge Blog
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.
Are you bringing your marketing to life?
2019 has seen a surge in the use of video on social media platforms and it is now a focal point in many marketing strategies.
With smartphones and technology, it has never been easier to create cost-effective videos, and these are a great way of demonstrating a company’s story in an entertaining and engaging style.
Marketing life does go on
When I returned from maternity leave after 9 months, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect in the world of marketing, social media and digital marketing.

In turn, brand awareness grows, the number of new enquiries increases and the business expands. But what happens if you stop marketing because you're too busy?
Networking or Not Working?
“I’m too busy doing the day job!” “I haven’t got time for networking!” People have different views on taking time out from fee earning to meet new prospects and build on business relationships. In this blog, we talk about the advantages of networking for your professional services firm.
Repurposing content – the how and why
Blogs and articles take time to research and craft, so why not maximise that effort by ‘repurposing’ them? Repurposing doesn’t only apply to blogs or news articles, though. Tweets or Facebook posts might feel more throwaway, but they don’t have to be. And what do you do with client feedback, testimonials or slide decks and notes you may have spent hours putting together for a presentation?
