Having loved photography from a young age, I started my working life as a sports photographer, photographing football, golf, basketball, etc, but my passion was, and still is motor sport. So, I was lucky enough to work for Formula One. This lead me to travel the world and see places that I could never have dreamed of ever visiting.
Unfortunately, dreams can come to an end, and working in F1 did, abruptly, by being made redundant. However, this dream only led me to another. Since the age of 12, having seen the “Making of Star Wars” I wanted to work in Visual Effects. So with redundancy I put myself on a visual effects course, which led me to work within the film and visual effects industry. I was fortunate enough to work on films like “Troy”, “Harry Potter” and many others. The highlight being part of the Oscar and BAFTA award winning team that worked on “The Golden Compass”, oh yes, and not to forget the two EMMY Awards for “Rome” and “Generation Kill.”
You can find out which movies I worked on here, at IMDb.
From here I started a successful wedding photography business, that was until the recession of 2008, where my wedding bookings went through the floor!
Not being disheartened, I looked at where I was and had come from – I had created my own website and managed to rank very well in Google and the search engines, and then the “light bulb” moment happened. If I can do that for myself, why can’t I do that for other businesses! There are many small to medium sized businesses out there that need help with their web and online marketing. Many do not even know what SEO is! So Blue Square Management was born.
Our aim and goal is simple, to help grow YOUR business.
We provide digital consultancy services to clients as stand-alone consultancy projects that can also be incorporated into a digital marketing strategy that includes SEO services, PPC Campaign Management and social media management services.
We first employed Blue Square Management for his SEO services and found their professionalism and knowledge to be first class. We were looking for a web designer in Bromley or Orpington area to create a new website. Being impressed with Paul, we asked him to create the site and I believe in style and navigate it surpasses any of our competitors. He worked hard and willingly to make our ideas a reality. Our online reputation has been enhanced through Paul’s work. He is now our “go to” man as we look to increase our on-line presence.Thank you.
We have used Blue Square for around 2 years now. As we grew as a business and the development of technology & social media gathered pace we realised that there were people out there who could do this ‘stuff’ far better than we could in-house. Web site design, Google Adwords, SEO and more are now handled by Blue Square. Without them we would have diverted from the task of actually running and developing the business. Most importantly they have taken the time to learn our business!
We have used Paul to help boost our reviews, especially on Google+ and Facebook. Paul software makes it as simple as clicking the initial invite process and then sitting back. We now have a number of 5 star reviews on our site which is undoubtedly helping us gain more business. Thank you Paul for your hard work and advice.
BlueSquareManagement were really helpful when I was looking for a new theme for my website. They took time to understand my requirements, made recommendations and helped with the set-up throughout. They carried out on-page SEO and set up tools for off-site SEO to ensure I have a greater web presence. Overall I could not be happier with the quick turnaround for my project and I would not hesitate to recommend them to others. I will also be using their reputation management software in future.
I am a professional Toastmaster. Blue Square look after my website optimisation, they maintain the site for relevance and news worthiness; they add pictures and words that I feed them. I don’t know how all this happens, but I trust them absolutely with the guardianship of my image, my reputation and potential future clients. I recommend them strongly.
Paul has helped us improve our online marketing considerably. It has made a great impact on our business and I couldn’t recommend Blue Square Management more highly to any small business.
