February has been a jam-packed month of meetings and events, as our clients get into the swing of 2016 and begin to put their plans and strategies into action. We’ve had an eventful few weeks, with lots of content marketing inspiration provided by Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day!

To bring you up to speed with the latest developments at our copywriting agency, let’s take a look at what’s been happening here at Making You Content:

The #GMBizExpo Returns

As the Greater Manchester Business Exhibition celebrates its 5th year on the 15th of March, already there are over 1000 people signed up for the event. With Brad Burton booked to headline, it’s shaping up to be bigger and better than ever.

To start proceedings off with a bang, Grant Erskine hosted the #GMBizExpo launch event at Printworks. The launch party, held on Tuesday 2nd February, was a huge success. We met a diverse range of businesses and entrepreneurs, and can’t wait for the main event in a few weeks’ time! 

A Resurgence of Print

It’s been a busy start to the year here at Making You Content, with lots of new clients and projects to look forward to over the coming months. Already this year, we’ve spotted a clear and growing trend; many of our clients have been ordering brochures, leaflets and pamphlets, to hand out at events and target prospects through direct mail copywriting.

As more and more brands enhance their social media presence, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to stand out online. So it seems that 2016 may see a resurgence of print marketing – a smart move by savvy brands! Find out why print marketing is so very important in a digital age.

Making You Content Goes Limited

As our Manchester copywriting agency approaches two years in business, it’s time to reflect on our successes and developments so far. In light of the huge growth of the business over the past 12 months, we decided to become a limited company! We’re proud to announce that from April, we will be trading as Making You Content Limited, after incorporating the business at Companies House.

Celebrating International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day falls on Tuesday 8th March, and we’re delighted to have been invited to London to celebrate the occasion. Our founder, Kelly Gilmour-Grassam, will be speaking at IPSE’s Success Stories of Female Freelancers, hosted by broadcaster Penny Haslam.

We’ll be speaking alongside some inspiring individuals, including Hannah Martin, co-founder of the Talented Ladies Club and MP Flick Drummond. Fancy coming along? Book your place – limited tickets available!

It’s been an action-packed few weeks for our content agency, and already March is shaping up to be just as eventful. If you’re going to the GM Biz Expo or IPSE’s International Women’s Day event, we look forward to seeing you there!
