About Profoundry

Col Skinner, Owner & Consultant

Profoundry is a Manchester based independent digital consultancy started and run by Col Skinner.
I provide a range of proactive services to help businesses improve their Digital results. 

My (Brief) Story:

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.

My Approach:

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.

Why Work With Me?

Why ‘Profoundry’?

I’m often asked why ‘Profoundry’ as a brand name? I chose it for the range of terms the brand name incorporates within:
