Now then, Rich Sutherland here. How’s it going? You've all seen that I provide copywriting and blog writing services through sobananapenguin, but did you know that I’m also a writer of fiction in my spare time? If this interests you, I’d like to borrow a few minutes of your day to tell you about my current project.

Whether your business is just starting up or has been operating for years, regular press coverage is an essential part of growing your brand and attracting new customers.
Social media has seen a lot of changes in the short time we’ve had it in our lives. Though we use it for everything from idle chatter to heated discussions, perhaps the largest development is how integral it has become to brand awareness, customer service and sales. As the way in which we do business continues to evolve, an active presence on social media has never been more important for companies of all shapes and sizes.
The coronavirus crisis has affected us all in numerous ways, from incorporating social distancing into our daily routines, to many companies putting employees on furlough as a means of minimising financial loss. Whilst the government, local authorities and various funding bodies have put in place support packages, such as interest-free loans and business rates relief, many retailers are reporting that the future is looking bleak for their brick-and-mortar stores. The question is, are all businesses struggling, and if not, what are the successful ones doing differently?
We use LinkedIn on a daily basis to connect with interesting people and explore new trends in marketing, design, social media and the wider world of business.

Whether you’re looking for a dazzling show, a hearty meal or maybe just a frothy coffee whilst you appreciate some local art, Hull Truck Theatre has it all. This time we’re taking a look at the best treats they’ve got in store for the end of 2019.
One of our favourite things about Hull is how many independent retailers there are scattered across the city, from eco-friendly market stalls, to shops that specialise in homemade cakes and pastries, and everything in between.

Humber Street has fast become one of the most popular places to hang out in Hull, with a plethora of exciting shops, restaurants and bars popping up down there over the last few years.

If you’re a foodie living in Hull, you’re really spoilt for choice. With amazing restaurants, cafes and takeaways located on every corner of the city, you could plausibly eat somewhere different every day of the month - but what if your selection is halved by the fact that you don’t eat meat?
