Have you seen LinkedIn’s If I Were 22 series in honour of graduation season? It’s going down a storm! 

Here professionals think back to when they were fresh faced and bushy tailed, just out of university and raring to go into the world of business. If you had the chance to jump in a time machine, bend space and go back to give yourself one piece of career advice, what would you say? 

Well, we’ve asked the Liberty Marketing team and here are a few of their answers:




We’re not sure if you noticed, but the weather was PRETTY abysmal yesterday (the 14th of May 2015, for those of you who stumble across this in the distant future). But that didn’t stop team Lib, who made a tremendous effort to turn up for the 5k Corporate Run Cardiff, which was held in a practically submerged Bute Park. 

Despite the drizzle (which admittedly wasn’t so bad by the time we rocked up), the dream team ran to raise money for the Welsh Children’s Cancer Charity, Latch. This extremely deserving charity does amazing work supporting children and their families who are being treated at the Oncology Unit at the Children’s Hospital of Wales, offering them accommodation, support groups, financial help and a range of activities, as well as lots more. 

So far, we’ve raised £320, but we’ve got big hopes of smashing last year’s total of £631.97, so if you’d like to help us, you can do here. More...

South Wales is emerging as a tech force to be reckoned with, according to a recent Tech Nation report carried out by Tech City UK (the organisation set up by the UK government to promote the tech and digital economy, FYI). 

The self-cited journey through the UK’s twenty one digital clusters highlights each of their assets and shines a spotlight on the UK’s thriving network of growing digital tech economies for professionals and investors alike. 

We (South Wales) made it to the top five in two of Tech Nation’s most exciting categories; average annual company turnover growth since 2010 (at 28%) and fastest annually growing cluster by new companies incorporated since 2010 (with 87%). 

Other impressive stats gleaned from the report include the fact that 98% of digital companies in South Wales expect their revenue to grow next year, and that there are more than 28,000 people in digital employment right here in our neck of the woods. More...






It’s been a little while but we’re back with another 'Meet the Team' segment. Say hello to our SEO sniper Allan Tan! 

Allan joined the team in spring 2015 as our newest SEO Specialist after spending many years as a work-from-home dad, freelancing in the digital world. Allan learnt about SEO from a guru back in 2005 and fell in love with it.

But before this he was a highly trained soldier. Allan can jump off a moving plane (with a parachute of course), is paramedic trained, a fully-qualified lifeguard and can shoot a target comfortably from up to 600 meters away. We don’t know about you, but we wouldn’t want to mess with this guy. He does make us feel safe though. 

When Allan isn’t working he enjoys keeping fit through calisthenics and running, travelling the world and keeping his brain sharp doing Sudoku. His goal in life is rather sweet: he dreams of being a great grandfather one day.

Do you have a lot in common with Allan? Or perhaps you have an SEO related question? Then tweet him at @calisthenics123 and then check out our other Meet the Team profiles under the tab to your right. 


Have you heard the news? Facebook has rolled out a new algorithm and your News Feed will never look the same again. They’re putting users in control of what they see! But what exactly has changed? And how will this affect your business page? Let’s find out.

Finding creative commons photos can be rather tricky, but on the plus side, when browsing these websites you do come across some absolute gems. By gems though, we don’t mean stock photos that perfectly match the topic we're searching for. 

Oh no. We mean real “what the f...otograph is that?!" types of pictures.

Here are just a few of the weirdest stock images that we’ve come across this week:

Happy/sad



A man covered in flour making happy and sad faces; just what I need for that article I was writing about identical twins working in a flour factory that exploded (and only one of them enjoyed their job).

Don’t be sad season 4 has ended. The moment you’ve been waiting for is just a few short weeks away (start the countdown). The charismatic and charming Harvey Specter will be back on your screens soon! The self-proclaimed best lawyer in New York and the rest of Suits’ cast of colourful characters will return with the release of season 5 this June. 

Up there with Game of Thrones and House of Cards in terms of viewing figures, Suits has quickly become a roaring success, both in the US and here in the UK, and it’s easy to see why. Witty, clever and with a drop of romance to spice things up a bit, Suits has all the drama that we try to avoid in our own everyday lives.


Ladies want to be with him and guys want to be him, but did you realise Harvey Specter could teach us a lot about digital marketing? Let’s take a look at his most iconic one-liner quotes and how you can apply them to your day-to-day work in the internet world. 

WARNING! May contain spoilers. 






Have you always admired James Bond’s suave and debonair way of dressing, his way with the ladies or maybe simply his ability to drink so many darn martinis? Well, sadly we can’t help you with that (keep dreaming) but we can, however, turn you into the 007 of the internet.

Good marketing is all about knowing your competitors: who they are, how they work, what they do well and, of course, how you can stand out from them. So, in this post we are going to hone your sleuthing skills and teach you how you can beat the other double 0’s to become the one that everyone remembers. And don’t forget: It’s not spying, it’s gathering intel! 



The General Election is just around the corner, but do you know who you’re voting for yet? The manifestos have been released and the debates have aired, but a surprising amount of people are turning to social media to help them decide who to vote for. 

Two in three online adults now have a current social networking profile and politicians now recognise the power of Facebook and Twitter when communicating their message. So could the 2015 general election be the year that social media changes our country? Certainly.



If your business is online, then you’ve probably been told a million zillion times that you should be blogging. I won’t go into the whys and wherefores because I’m pretty sure that’s not what you’re here for (and we’ve written plenty about it in the past). 

In fact, if I had to, I’d bet my last fiver that you’re here because while you already know you need to write a blog, you haven’t got a clue how to go about it. What you need is tips. And not just any tips, expert tips. 

Boy have you come to the right place. More...
