What led you to set up your own business?
I have a passion for supporting businesses in using social media to amplify their marketing efforts and generate interest. I am extremely passionate about how the power of social media and great content can be leveraged to connect people closer to a business through social media marketing.
Do you have a unique proposition?
Content for social media for a multitude of different industries.
What is your company’s biggest achievement?
Currently it's navigating COVID-19 and setting up a business during the pandemic.
What do you think the future looks like for Manchester’s digital and tech sector?
I think Manchester has such a thriving tech sector and it's the place to be right now if you're in tech. I agree with ideas that areas will take a hit, no thanks to the COVID pandemic but I also believe there's huge appetite for digital businesses and skills.
Tell us something we might not know about your business?
I believe you have to be Relentless and be in the social space with a long term strategy. Positive results are rarely recorded as overnight success and it takes hard work. Hence the name, Relentless.
