About me

Hi, I’m James!

With more than 12 years’ experience across several senior Production and Marketing roles, creating interesting content is what I love to do. I’ve produced a huge range of content ranging from magazine articles, press advertisements, social media posts, consumer and B2B emails, direct mail pieces, website content, sales collateral and aspirational blog posts. You name it, I’ve produced it.

As well as extensive experience in creating highly engaging, search-friendly content, I specialise in the amplification of this content. I have a wealth of experience in ensuring the correct content is seen by the correct people on the correct platform – whether that is through social media, advertising platforms, industry publications or targeted email campaigns.

You can check out my work below.

Thanks,

James Richards

As well as engaging with active database members, retention campaigns play a key role in the success of your business.

I have worked on a number of campaigns that have resulted in additional incremental spend and successfully re-engaged and reactivated previously dormant members.

Partnerships and publishers

Throughout my career I’ve worked with a number of external publishers to increase the reach of promotions and communications.

Further reach can help brand awareness, increase database size, increase sales and revenue, increase your pool for digital retargeting.

Likewise, mutually beneficial partnerships with likeminded brands, can help increase the exposure of your company to new audiences through reciprocal marketing or in some instances public relations opportunities.
