Very nicely in fact. Here’s an ad for one, which saw a beautiful partnership between The Royal British Legion
It’s no secret that we’re digital marketing experts with mental health issues. We’re bold about it. It’s not going to go away, and so all we feel like we can do is check in with professionals, spread mental health awareness and, frankly, own the conditions that frequently hamper our lives. We don’t reckon there’s much
Every time we think about running our next webinar, a great big wave of fright washes over us. We have a real fear of running webinars, despite being quite unintimidated by public speaking and slapping our faces all over social media. Why we’re keen to Webinars are in our social media strategy right now, you
Need a few dazzling social media facts to throw in an ignorant conversationalists’ face? We’ve got you covered. We’ve all been chatting to that important but somewhat glib Department Director about our day job role, but are overwhelmingly aware that they think we’re kinda beneath them.

Sure – #NationalPeanutButterLoversDay or #WorldToiletDay might not seem directly relevant to your brand or your social media conversations (although now you know they exist and, actually, #WorldToiletDay is a pretty important charity campaign so if they’re applicable to you, you’re welcome). If you use our Heart and Soul Digital Content Planners, you might wonder why we
Download your FREE social media strategy template now! Be honest; how sick are you of the sentence “everything starts with your social media strategy”?

Recently we freaked out over something that was making us happy. That something was the amount of money we had been spending on coffee and lunches in a local cafe. Actually, scrap that. We weren’t freaking out about the amount – as in, the numerical figure – we were freaking out that we were spending
It’s true that people come to us to manage their digital marketing because we’re something of a one-stop shop. Need strategy? That’s our favourite. Wicked copy? You bet. Pacing and managing content? Hell yes! But we need something from them in return so we can hit the ground running, and make their channels awesome from
Our preference is always to use original photos on any social media newsfeed or blog post, but sometimes it simply isn’t possible. In a world that expects super fast content sharing, expertly arranged photos and virality on a constant basis, sometimes the only way you can get high-quality content out into the world at speed
We run our business well. We do a good job, have a healthy roster of clients, and we take on huge responsibilities every single day. We love it. But for better or worse, pushing ourselves harder is both a blessing and a curse (rhyme unintended but happily left in there). Struggling with work overwhelm is
The internet is not short of stories about new freelancers “making the leap” and “being your own boss”. They’re great!
