A change of direction

Things have been quiet at DMSMM Towers for some time: apologies for that. A period of physical inactivity following a knee injury last summer, with the help of some business coaching, eventually led to a major rethink. The outcome of this is that I am stepping away from routine social media (such as account setup and management) in favour of more blog post and web copy writing for clients.

For instance I am currently promoting a Kickstarter … Continue reading

This short radio interview tells you a bit more about me!

I hope you enjoy the interview. Feel free to ask me any questions … Continue reading

Tell us where you are!

It usually starts when I am followed by a business on social media, or spot an interesting share or retweet. I click through to their account for a closer look and to see where they are, and at most I see “UK” or “International”. I click through again to their website and click all over the place for their location and find nothing, or maybe just a mobile phone number with no indication of their whereabouts (and using just a mobile phone number can, in some circumstances, look downright unprofessional). I work a lot with local businesses, and make a point … Continue reading
