Weekly roundup #1
New members of the team
A lot’s been happening at MOVE over the past few weeks. We’ve been working on some exciting new projects and there have been two new arrivals in the office.
We would like to take the opportunity to introduce our new account manager, Jessica Beswick as well as our dedicated SEO executive, Daniel Monteiro.
The two add even more agency experience to the office and it was imperative that they were able to contribute to creative discussions and strategy.
Daniel is a seasoned SEO veteran and understands how to mix creative ideas with an analytical edge. He has a keen interest in tech and digital marketing and implements this knowledge in a way that really benefits our SEO strategy.
Jessica has a plethora of agency experience working with a range of clients in various different industries. She’s already settled in very well and has added an extra string to our bow in terms of offering a holistic digital marketing strategy.
Needless to say we are both looking forward to working with them and seeing MOVE Digital grow.
Apple rolled out their ‘Apple Pay’ service for the London market this week. However, there have been some fairly serious teething problems. For example, people have been reporting payment failures when touching out on the tube. Also, several banks weren’t ready for the technology. Private banking service, Coutts announced that they were withdrawing from participating in the scheme until 2016.
Talking of Apple, we have been enjoying Apples new music streaming service. There have been understandable UI problems considering that it is the first version. However, the general feel of the interface and the Radio function are of a really high standard. The fact that it is free puts it over the line ahead of Spotify.
