Manchester Skyline by Oliver Kersh


It seems only a short while ago that we started the company, but in actual fact it was 5 whole years ago! Since then we’ve worked with developers, design agencies and of course a whole variety of interesting clients. The range of jobs we’ve worked on is pretty amazing too. We’ve built brochure websites, e-commerce shops, blogs, Facebook pages, email marketing tools and templates, and even social networks. We’ve also managed search engine optimisation campaigns and carried out research, link building and implementation. We’ve worked with clients big and small to consult them and guide them on the best way to develop technology and marketing strategies while avoiding pitfalls.

Digital Marketing Manchester

We are happy to be celebrating one whole year of trading as digital marketing consultants from our fantastic Manchester address. We all love our office space in The Triangle and have really enjoyed working from such a vibrant and innovative environment. Outside the building we’ve met some fantastic agencies and freelancers who we’ve had the honour of working with.

Passionate about the internet

One thing that hasn’t changed that we are truly passionate about what can be achieve with technology, and are still constantly astounded about how barriers are broken down, people are connected and new innovations are made possible. Whether clients have a well established business plan or a brand new start up idea, we welcome them to come and speak to us about how their plan can be developed and deployed using the best parts of the internet at its core. There are no challenges too big or ideas too fanciful.

Plans for the future

We believe that the web is still in its infancy and there are things around the corner that we can’t even imagine yet. We work hard every day to find new ways of working and are constantly learning new methods to stay on the cutting edge of web technology.Our focus for the future will be on more innovation, enhanced user experiences and a web where we are more social and connected than we’ve ever been before.

What does Apple have in store for us next year?

Apple plans to revolutionise your living room

Everyone loves to speculate what product Apple will bring out next, after all the company is at the top of its game. According to the Telegraph newspaper, there is something in the pipeline that will excite many.

Before Steve Jobs died he expressed how he wanted to move into people’s living rooms and hoped to revolutionise the television set.

In his autobiography he stated: “I’d like to create an integrated television set that is completely easy to use. It would be seamlessly synced with all of your devices and with iCloud. It will have the simplest user interface you could imagine.”


Apple products have so far been in people’s pockets with the iPod and iPhone, sat on desks with the Mac and on people’s laps with the iPad.

The new iTV product is likely to come in a range of sizes and will be more expensive than an equivalent television set due to the comprehensive integration with other Apple services and the cloud.

According to news agency Bloomberg, an insider at Apple has revealed the company wants users to access television shows by integrating sources like satellite TV, online film rental services and iTunes downloads.

Steve Jobs has ‘cracked it’

The product, which will be out by next Christmas, will be a complete TV set rather than a plug-in box and one of the last things Steve Jobs talks about in his autobiography was that he “finally cracked it.” He wanted his company to reimagine the design and functionality of television and it looks like he has accomplished just that.
