In truth I'd got a bit bored blogging so stopped this. Started another elsewhere called Homeslade.com
The caption for this chart is; "..It’s almost a year ago since we created our blueprint for content marketing infographic – and with so much conversation now around the converging of digital and ‘off-line’ media, the proliferation of mobile and the increasing popularity of marketers talking about paid, owned and earned media we wanted to update our blueprint for 2013.."
A very handy, cut out and keep guide to agency names, By Rob & Joe, seen at The Inspiration Room. This chart should be first port of call for any start-up. Best advice, take a really, really long step back before you choose.
My best was 'Hicklin Slade & Partners' sounded solid even when there was only 3 of us in my front room, but even better when there was 90 of us in an office opposite Nike Town. My worst?

Choice can be a cruel option. A few years ago an online professional profile meant Linkedin. Now due to the success of the latter we have loads of options.

I have been trying out a couple of the new ones recently. Vizify looks great and is a doddle to set up. Maybe a bit too style over content, but I do like the look of it. Upmo is more Linkedin-a-like currently a bit buggy and some features are in 'coming soon' mode. It does feature a 'score' number, but a bit like Klout its debatable as to how valuable that may be.
