Hi, my name is Phil. I'm a Digital Strategist from Northumberland, living in London, where I work as a Client Strategist for Manifesto Digital.
In a field of marketing that changes daily, it's my job to understand all the tools available, and monitor evolving trends. My main function is matching these tools and trends to project requirements, and pushing clients to try new, innovative marketing tactics. When not trying and testing the latest ad tools in Facebook, I enjoy watching and reading about wildlife and try to get out and amble with my camera once in a while.
I'm a creative, an optimist, an experimenter and an animal lover, looking to make a difference in the world one digital campaign at a time.
With almost 19 unique users a month I like to think my blog is changing the world. You might notice I'm not so great at keeping it up to date, that's partly because talking to oneself is the first sign of craziness, but also because I spend my spare time writing blogs for others too. If you need a blog writing about digital marketing or social media trends, marketing in the charity, automotive or healthcare sectors, or just generally interesting things that happen on the interweb, then drop me an email.
I'm not sure about you, but I have a huge bookmark folder in Chrome called 'Useful Tools', and I thought I'd share some of my favourites here, along with some of the best guides I've read, the ones I return to over and over. Most of the tools are free to use, like Landscape, a free tool to resize social images, or Pexels, my go-to for royalty free stock images. Hopefully you'll find some keepers in here too, and remember to keep checking back as I update the list with everything I find.
If you have any questions about me or my work, if you're a Nigerian prince with an exciting business opportunity, or if you'd just like to chat, simply fill in the below and I'll be happy to get in touch.
