Since we regularly get questions from clients and prospects about marketing situations, we decided to start a blog where we can answer those questions and occasionally (ok, more than occasionally) have a rant about something silly we've seen or heard about in the online marketing space! So, without any further ado, please enjoy the posts we've made. 

By the way, if you have any questions or topics you'd like us to discuss, feel free to pop through an enquiry and if we've got time and the topic would be of interest to our site users, we'll look at writing a blog post &/or recording a video on the topic.
