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 & inhouse 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 the town centre. 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 in a 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 Southport working out of a relaxed and professionals office space in Hesketh Mount, a listed building just off Lord Street, a Victorian canopied boulevard edged in scenic gardens. I am surrounded by a healthy mix of enterprises, great coffee shops and fine eateries. Find out more about the office and getting there.
