by Rebecca McCormick

When I started in the role of North West regional sales manager for Bdaily I knew, as a Mancunian now living in rural Lancashire, that the region has a lot to offer.

It’s easy to see the bright lights of Manchester and Liverpool that are leading the…

Top ten common content marketing mistakes and how to avoid them

by Ellen Forster

Last year I wrote a blog about what makes good content. Since then, I have received hundreds of content enquiries a day from PR and marketing professionals keen to contribute to our Opinion and Advice columns.

Based on…
