Example Marketing & Web Design The Journal Issue 8


It is definitely too late to say this now, but we’re going to say it anyway (we just can’t help ourselves) Happy New Year!

We hope your 2023 has got off to a flying start. We have certainly noticed business starting to pick up again after the festive break and it’s nice to get our teeth stuck in to some new projects.

Key Takeways form the linkedin algorithm report


Takeaways from the LinkedIn Algorithm Report Illustration

We came across this very handy and succinct summary of how to improve your LinkedIn efforts.

If, like us, you have been meaning to fully embrace LinkedIn and grow your ‘personal brand’ it can be tricky to know where to start and how to smash the platform. As you would imagine LinkedIn is controlled by an algorithm which you probably don’t have the time, or inclination, to figure out by yourself.

There is so much advice out there, and we’re sure you have come across a very clever LinkedIn trainer or two who will be able to guide you through the whole thing. But, if you’re looking for something easily digestible in the meantime, we think this illustration does the trick.

Sustainability update 2023


Sustainability Update 2023

As a sustainable business with a Norfolk Carbon Charter accreditation, we have a responsibility to continually review and improve our efforts. With that in mind, we have taken a look at what we achieved last year and come up with a list of ways we can improve our sustainability efforts in 2023.

Our biggest challenge this year is to reduce our carbon emissions. We only emit 8.60 tonnes CO2e, which is pretty low. We have moved into a bigger office since we did our calculations so there is only so much we can shave off our carbon emissions. Wish us luck!

McDonalds New Advert

Scrolling through LinkedIn, we came across Joe Glover posting about the new McDonalds advert and we completely agree with his sentiment.

The new McDonalds advert is simple, but very clever. It effectively sells the experience of treating yourself to a McDonalds lunch, without showing a single piece of food. So, actually, you don’t feel like you’re being sold to at all, but I bet you fancy a Bic Mac now. 😉

It also helps how the music is incredibly catchy and we couldn’t make it through the ad without raising our brows 👀 Bravo McDonalds, very well done.
