As much of the English speaking world seems to be poking, tagging and micro-blogging on a daily basis, is it time to start advertising on social networks?
Fast growing Demographic
People in the UK spend more time on Facebook than any other social network. Surprised? Probably not. What is interesting for marketers though, is the fastest growing demographic are not the kids… but women over 55. The 35-65 year olds now represent a third of all Facebook users. One explanation for females leading the way is they want to view their families’ photos and Facebook has become the biggest online repository of photos in the world.

I’m attempting to climb the 4 peaks in just 36 hours between the 22nd and 24th July. It’s a hardcore 31 miles with no sleep with about 12-14 other happy trekkers to raise funds for Tackle Africa, a charity which raises awareness about HIV using the medium of football.
I’m not an experienced hiker, I have never climbed a mountain before, and I can imagine it’s going be an ‘experience’ I will never forget. Think super blisters and seized muscles….
Anyway, I’m trying hard to raise money, as much money as I can for the charity. As I only decided to do it a few weeks ago, raising the money (and getting fit enough) is going to be a tough call. So I thought I’d see if any readers out there would be kind enough to donate something to the cause?
My target is £500 and I would love to raise more for them… (But at the same time, will be ecstatic to get anywhere near close to the minimum of £500). Any amount counts, so go with any donation, they all add up
For those of you unfamiliar with the four highest peaks in the UK this is what I’ll be doing in a crazily short amount of time:
Slieve Donard (850m) – Northern Ireland
Ben Nevis (1,344m) – Scotland
Scafell Pike (978m) – England
Snowdon (1,085m) – Wales
Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Tackle Africa gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.
Thank you for reading and thank you ever so much if you sponsor me!
This year we raced into #17 place in the New Media Ages Marketing Services Guides (Search Engine Marketing Agency category). It’s a brilliant achievement for a small agency like us and a fantastic improvement on last year’s ranking of #34.
It will be interesting to see what happens next year as this one didn’t take into account the removal of the BPF!

If you’re visiting Brighton for a meeting and want to know where the best coffee houses with Wi-Fi are located, here are some of our favourites:
1. Taylor St Baristas – It’s an unusual set up. A coffee shop kind in front of the travel agent Travelbag but the coffee and cakes are excellent! Plus it’s really close to the train station and we think it was voted best coffee in Brighton at some point.
2. Bills Produce – simply a glorious place to eat and work. It’s pretty quiet outside of lunch and supper time when it’s absolutely heaving.
3. The Tic Tock Cafe – cute and quirky little coffee shop in the heart of the South Laines.
4. Choccywoccydoodahs – the bar chocolat on Middle Street is a chocolat heaven and serves rather good coffee.
5. Pavilion Gardens Cafe – great if you fancy sitting outside and looking out at the Royal Pavilion.
6. Carluccio’s – the authentic Italian set right in the centre of things. You can also sit outside and watch the world go by.
7. The Red Roaster Coffee House – at the bottom of St James Street this is a lovely place with countless coffee options to suit every taste, with selections of coffee from every coffee producing country in the world, probably.
