Battenhall turns five

A lot of people, it turns out, have a five-year plan. I’ve been asking around and I can confirm these plans are almost always incredibly exciting. To travel the world. To buy a home. To swim with dolphins. To start up a business. Some people just plan for health and happiness, which is sensible I think. But five years ago, my plan was to build a business myself, around something I felt I could do well, and for it to succeed. When I say succeed, I meant still exist in five years… that’s all really. And now here we are five years later.

Of late, the News Feed has become congested with random videos, company posts, news headlines, and sometimes less savoury content too. Zuckerberg has made it clear he would like the News Feed to become front and centre in our personal social media lives once again.

Swipe left to like me on… Ripple. Move over LinkedIn

The world of professional social networking hasn't changed that much in the last 10 years. LinkedIn for contacts and companies, Twitter for chat and content, then blogs and forums for niches.

Battenhall’s 2017 in review

With Christmas rapidly approaching, and our agency's 5th birthday right around the corner, it is time to look back over the year gone by and reflect on how it all panned out.

Considering only four years ago we were a company of just one person in an empty co-space hub in Shoreditch, the last 12 months have without doubt been the most formative we've experienced to date. We've invested heavily into our infrastructure in a way that will help us to scale up in 2018, from our new and expanded Battenhall HQ, to new HR and finance systems, and two new technology products developed entirely in-house and used on almost all our clients now.
