Digital and social media

We offer a range of digital services across web and social media to ensure your online footprint is the best shape it can be.

It is vital that professional services firms pay attention to their social media presence and have a strong, engaging website as search ranking is now heavily influenced by these factors. If potential clients cannot find you immediately online or are put off by uninteresting, incomplete or unused social media channels, you will be at a severe disadvantage compared to your competitors.

Your digital presence plays a crucial part in supporting and amplifying any PR and marketing activity and plays an important role in communicating your purpose and brand values.

Social media

Done well, social media is instrumental in driving new business, increasing client engagement and making your firm’s brand stand out in an increasingly competitive market.

Website services

Your website is your shop window to the world. Nearly all consumers will look for a firm’s website on Google before making the decision to buy, so your site needs to be enticing, eye-catching and user friendly.

MD Communications worked with my new marketing team on a retainer basis following a full tendering process.  The results from this collaboration were significant: we received a 45% increase in followers on LinkedIn, a 75% increase in content posted online and a 26% increase in business enquiries coming through the website.  All of this was achieved in under 12 months. I am now an advisor and NED at MD Communications. I would not be linked to a business that I did not feel had something of real value to bring to clients.
