My Technical Mandate

Technical Panic

Succumbing To Technical Things

I’m from a technical background, I spent 20 years in IT. I’m digital marketing now (internet marketing if you like) but my main strength is on the technical side of things so after some thought I have decided to succumb to it and make it my mission to try and explain technical things mostly related to Digital/Internet Marketing for the benefit of people who are not technical and in an easy to understand way without going into geekdom. That’s why I have re-branded as a “Digital Marketer With A Touch Of Tech”! READ MORE

Have You Got 6 Minutes To Help Me Out?

Trust Me

Trusting Me, Trusting You?

Abba or Alan Partridge might have said that 😀

Is your connection to the internet important to you?

For this blog I mostly talk about internet marketing related stuff with an occasional digression.  So far I have laid off the bad jokes and really off track stuff.  In this blog post I’m going off track but still related to internet marketing, just a bit more physical because … if you do anything online you need to be connected …

As well as internet marketing I also run an eCommerce site selling routers and other network gear called iwantrouters.com.  With a 20 year background in IT and 7 years in telecoms I have gathered some proficiency in these things (well I like to think so).  In fact as well as selling routers etc., I can also supply business class broadband, telephone lines, phone systems and most of the other stuff that goes with telecoms.  Anyway, I am not writing this to pitch my stuff but to talk a bit about broadband, in a straightforward and non-techy way … oh, what the heck, what I can supply is listed at the end of this blog … if you’re interested just let me know.
