Profoundry is a North West UK based independent digital consultancy started and run by Col Skinner. I provide a range of proactive digital advertising services to help businesses improve their growth.
I was introduced to the world of digital through a 1-year placement during my Marketing degree. After graduating I worked for 6 years across a spectrum of digital disciplines in agency & in-house roles. Then in December 2013, I decided to take control of my working life. I gave up my management job at an agency and started Profoundry with the aim of supporting online brands by personally delivering effective professional digital services.
In late 2018 I decided that over a decade living in the city was enough and bought a house in the West Lancashire countryside. I now call Southport my work home and operate out of an office in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle. However, I still meet with clients across the UK and via Skype for international clients.
I am driven by opportunities to get under the skin of businesses and like to keep things simple, jargon-free and practical. Digital marketing shouldn’t be an intimidating topic. Success in this field rests firmly on four main pillars; Discover, Define, Develop and Deliver.
During my career, I have worked with clients in virtually all industries from large multinational law firms to local one-man startups.
I like to work with clients based in a range of sectors and countries.
I love to write for and collaborate with the media and have been featured in over 20 publications.
I’m often asked why ‘Profoundry’ as a brand name? I chose it for the range of terms the brand name incorporates within:
The Profoundry type and cog are hint back to Manchester, where I founded the business, and it’s industrial past. Whilst the cursor arrow within the cog represents the Digital industry.
I am now based in Liverpool centre working out of a relaxed and professional office space in Studio N, based at Baltic Creative Campus in the heart of the city’s growing creative quarter. I am surrounded by a vibrant community of like-minded entrepreneurs, great coffee shops and fine eateries. Find out more about the office and getting there.
