In the competitive world of the Facebook newsfeed, capturing your community’s attention and driving engagement can be a real challenge. Your community has already put their hand up to say they want to hear from you, but they can prove fickled if you don’t showcase your offering in the right way.

Is LinkedIn overwhelming you? Unsure if it’s worth updating that profile? Will anyone even look at LinkedIn over your CV? Yes! Yes and Yes!
LinkedIn have made so many improvements in recent years, that many people are feeling overwhelmed!

We are seeing creatures, who enjoy stories through visual mechanisms – every year we spend billions on movies, theatre, opera and magazines. As our days get busier and our lives consumed with information, we turn towards the visuals to absorb a message quicker and with more ease.
