It’s hard to believe it’s a year since we were last here at Brighton campus handing out our SiteVisibility prize but it was time once again to present our award for digital excellence at the school of computing, engineering and mathematics at Brighton University.
At SiteVisibility I always make the most of all of our internal and external training sessions so when they come up, I’m usually first to wave my hand in the air shouting me me me! Something brilliant about SiteVisibility is the R&D program in place and how they invest huge amounts of time into each employee giving us the chance to learn new skills both to help us in work and in our day to day lives.
I joined the SiteVisibility content marketing team three months ago, after coming from an in house content team, and the difference between the two styles of work place are a lot more different than I predicted. Working in house is a lot more linear, whereas an agency can be a lot more varied and fast-paced, and if you’re thinking of making the move to either side, I’ve found that working here has opened a lot more doors. Here are a few things that really separate the two when it comes to my role.
Having been a part of the SiteVisibility team for just under a month now I am well overdue a blog-post in order to introduce myself. So, hello, my name’s Joe Burford, and I’m a Digital Marketing Manager. I have a background in marketing and sales which includes design, video and most forms of digital media.
My experience and interest in all aspects of digital has always big a major factor in my work, and it’s played an integral part of campaign strategy. I think that SiteVis has as great reputation, but more importantly, I value innovation, transparency and hard-work so I am happy to have joined this team.
Richard Adams has joined the SiteVisibility team as a Content Marketing Intern. These are this thoughts on his first day.
Day one of working at Site Visibility as a content intern and apparently it’s customary to introduce myself right here on the agency blog. For someone like me who dislikes being the centre of attention this is a somewhat scary situation to be in so please be nice with any comments you leave
At first glance I may seem a somewhat unusual recruit for a digital marketing agency in that most of my career to date has been in the world of retail management opening and running stores all over the UK. However alongside my busy life in retail I have also developed a hard-core love of blogging, SEO and more generally creating top-quality content. This is why the content team is such a close fit for me and I’m looking forward to settling in and becoming an integral part of the impressive line-up here at the Brighton SiteVisibility office.

As part of SiteVisibility’s long standing support of the University of Brighton’s Digital Media & Marketing programme, which is now in its ninth year, and following a rigorous and lengthy set of interviews, challenges and tests, we have hired our 2012-2013 digital marketing placement student; the future digital marketing consultant that is Natalie Wright.
SiteVisibility’s University of Brighton Digital Media placement programme is part of SiteVisibility’s CSR programme where we aim to provide opportunities for young people to develop a career in digital marketing.
Like all internet-based companies, digital agencies such as ours “get” social media. We see it as a key part of our marketing mix and we encourage all our clients to do likewise. All of our team are encouraged to use Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn etc during their working day, but should we insist they separate their work personas from their private ones?
The way we all behave and act at work is guided by our company’s values, contracts and policies and, ultimately, Employment Law. In addition, all businesses should have a policy to cover social networking, setting out when social media can be used at work and defining employees’ responsibilities regarding the company’s reputation and intellectual property, both while they are at work and in their private lives.
Digital agencies, however, have a further problem in that employees use social media at work on behalf of both the company and, sometimes, its clients. Who “owns” these accounts, who is responsible for them, who has access to them and what happens when employees leave? Read on
We held our annual Search Innovation Seminar at Daytona Sandown Park on 22nd June, and we wanted to share the presentations. It was a fantastic time with informative presentations, great questions from our audience, and lots of knowledge sharing.
Although the weather wasn’t great, the day certainly was!
