It's no secret that Digital 22 is growing rapidly and just before we enter 2019, we'd like to introduce our latest additions to the team. Keep reading to find out more about April, Oli, Chris, Sammie and Teagan to see what they can do to help our clients grow.
April's one of the main points of contact for clients and focuses on delivering quality results. She ensures clients are kept up-to-date with ongoing projects and work with the team internally to manage capacities. She has a background in PR and marketing so you can be sure that April's got everything under control.
Outside of work, April's a gin and prosecco lover. She'll never say no to a glass of either at the weekend. April's also an ex-drama student, having studied at drama school for seven years and used to perform at the Palace Theatre in Manchester every year. But she's definitely not a drama queen (we think).
One more interesting fact about April? She used to live on a farm with over 100 chickens, and would collect and sell the eggs by going door to door on her estate. Wowzer.
At Digital 22, we make sure we give everyone a chance, no matter their age or level of experience.
Oli's the third apprentice we've taken on since the company was founded in 2011. He shadows all areas of Inbound Marketing with a core focus on SEO. Oli helps the inbound team with conducting on-page and off-page optimisation to improve your visibility within search engines and drive targeted traffic to your website.
When Oli's not putting his budding SEO skills into practice, he's busy supporting Manchester United or looking after his pet Royal Python, Perseus. Oh, and he has a knack for getting lost in public places. Once, he got lost at the Eden Project in Cornwall and they had to shut the place down for four hours to find him.
Chris joined the D22 team as a PPC Marketer. He deals with all things Paid Search, from Google Ads, to Bing and social media. His job to help our clients get the most out of their advertising whilst complimenting their Inbound campaign they're running.
With 10 years' experience in Google Ads and, in Chris' own words, "a bit of a geek when it comes to Paid Search", you can be sure that your PPC needs are in capable hands.
On a personal basis, Chris is a huge football fan and has held a season ticket at Turf Moor for nine seasons. He also enjoys going to CrossFit and travelling.
Our second social media marketer here at D22, Sammie helps clients with their online presence by developing social campaigns and strategies. She works with the in-house team of marketing specialists to create relevant engaging content, community management which then, in turn, helps grow clients audiences, hopefully resulting in better ROI and brand awareness.
Outside of work, Sammie loves baking. In fact, she makes custom royal iced sugar cookies - all by hand! Check out her delicious creations on her Instagram here. The Instagram name comes from a song, "Reet Petite" by Jackie Wilson which was Sammie's favourite song as a little girl.
As an Inbound Marketing Apprentice, Teagan supports the SEO team, as well as assisting the marketing team when required. She will be focusing on Inbound Marketing and developing her skills on HubSpot to improve conversion rates for our clients.
Teagan studied Media, Film & Television Production at Edge Hill University. During her time at university, she worked at the Ribble Valley Council as a copywriter and helped produce the Visit Ribble Valley Visitor Guide 2018 - something she's extremely proud of!
Outside of work, she's a social butterfly who likes spending lots of time with friends and family. Teagan loves going to the gym and considers herself to be a big foodie, with Chinese food being her go-to. Teagan also likes to travel to different countries throughout the year - especially if she's going skiing.
All the Digital 22 team is based at Holmes Mill, Clitheroe, which is in the Ribble Valley in Lancashire. Our building is a listed and renovated cotton mill and our Directors chose it due to its convenient size, stunning location and first-class on-site facilities.
Beneath our office is the famous Bowland Brewery, a deli and supermarket that sells local produce. It's also, conveniently, a bar which we love to frequent for the occasional pint and cocktail after work (hooray for early finish Fridays).
