I attended a digital marketing workshop led by Martin and really benefitted from the course. Martin's presentation gave me a clearer understanding of digital marketing, and I found it useful that it was tailored to our small business. Martin was very informative and shared a lot of practical tips which I hope to implement going forward. Thanks Martin!

I would highly recommend Martins work. Having attended a workshop on digital marketing run by Martin, I was extremely impressed with his depth of knowledge and experience in marketing. Having provided me with some fantastic information I have been able to plan and begin a marketing strategy for my company with confidence that I am getting the foundations right. Following the course, Martin provided 1 - 1 time and gave me invaluable advice and help on designing my own website. Setting up a new company has many hurdles and with Martins help the marketing side for me has been dramatically lowered and is far less daunting now.

Martin held a group of workshops on digital marketing.We covered a lot of information ,he made it applicable to our small business. I am now more confident in our digital marketing strategy and have implemented some ideas already. He doesn't set unrealistic goals, and makes everything achievable for a small business. He doesn't talk down to you;and makes marketing seem simple and easy, when sometimes it really isn't! Thanks

The world of marketing now is unrecognisable compared to 15 years ago. Some of us can remember a world before Facebook, before Google, we can remember it, but we no longer live in that world. Now we live in a marketing world dominated by a few key channels, but most importantly dominated by the consumers.

As technologies continue to evolve so do customers.

As a result, the marketing activities of companies also need to move apace to keep up with both its application of digital technologies and developing the knowledge and skills to use them. It’s no longer good enough to produce a wonderful brochure, print out beautifully designed leaflets, and (metaphorically or literally) start knocking on doors.

Now we need to entice our prospects and customers to come to us, to engage with us, and to stay engaged.

Now, you can develop your website (and you need to keep developing it), run pay per click campaigns, use social media, create viral marketing, have a quality blog, Twitter, Tumblr, pinterest, apps, online media space, analytics, goal tracking – the list goes on… but we understand it can all be very confusing for most businesses!

But not for us, we can lead you through the world of digital and social marketing and make a difference to your company.

Call us on 07765 406530 or email martin@mcm2.co.uk

We will review what you want to achieve, assess your current activity and implement an integrated digital strategy which will deliver the best results for your budget.
