    Thanks! Your comments are appreciated. Actually the business has been slowly growing over time, but only recently has become a limited UK company. I've gained some qualifications, done the ground work and research to provide a great service to our clients. We currently have 5 clients who we're managing varying degrees of social media campaigns for, from Wordpress design, to Facebook advertising campaign management.

    We'll be starting some cool services in the future like video and podcast creation.
