Is your brand in a performance marketing plateau?

Sunday, 29th Jan

While we love performance marketing at Shaun Polidano Consulting, it shouldn't be the only channel you rely on for growth.

Change is not an ugly word in SEO

Monday, 7th Jan

Arnold Bennett. said, any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts. Change can sometimes frustrate us, call questions as to why it was needed and even lead to the worst possible unplanned scenario. But change has its benefits, primarily in that it allows us to become better thinkers and become inevitably better marketers.
