Development has started on a new idea I had to connect clients with relevant freelance marketers and small agencies! More than 130 marketers have signed up already, from all around the world.

I've opted for the obvious name and simply called it Find Me A Marketer. If you work in PR, social media, search marketing, copywriting or any other marketing area(s), sign up here:

goo.gl/NPJ7BB 

Only those signed up before the site launches next month will be able to do so for free, so if you like the sound of it, get yourself on the database ASAP!

You can also find it on Twitter: www.twitter.com/findmeamarketer. Give it a follow if you fancy. 

Any shares appreciated!
The latest from Find Me a Marketer (@findmeamarketer). Find Me a Marketer is a new service connecting users with relevant freelance marketers and small agencies. Launching 06/14. Sign up here: http://goo.gl/NPJ7BB. Worldwide

LOOK, it's a picture of an interconnected world and everything, showing how this is open to marketers all around the world. (A picture says 1,000 words and I've almost just used 1,000 to explain why I used it).

I've said so long to PR (for the time being) and am now working full-time on a blogger engagement service +Andy Barr and I launched officially earlier in the year - www.bloggabase.com. Terrified and excited at the same time.
hanging up boots Today is the day I hang up my PR boots, at the grand old age of 25 (it's my 26th this Sunday, if you want to send me nice things). I joined Frank PR back in June, after almost five and a half years at 10 Yetis in Gloucester. It was a big decision to work in London – in doing so, ...

Story
Tagline
PR man that likes to create things that benefit the industry. Full time tuna eater.
Introduction
I'm a dad of two, one seven year old (Maia) and one two year old (Noah).

In March 2013 I co-founded blogger outreach service bloggabase. After a stint working away from my family at Frank PR, I left to go freelance and spend more time working on bloggabase.

I started my career in PR working for 10 Yetis PR Agency. Before falling into PR, as many of us seem to, I worked in fitness. 

When at 10 Yetis, I came up with The CRAPPs - the Communicate Relations Awards for PR Professionals. It was basically a fun way for us to look at the issue of media relations. The font of all near-knowledge Wikipedia can tell you more about it here.

I live in Gloucester but often split my time between home and London. I like to think I mask the accent well. (I don't). I'm @RichLeighPR on Twitter.

I started PRexamples.com (@PRexamples on Twitter) in January 2012. It is a site dedicated to the best in up-to-date PR stunts and campaigns. More than 200 students and marketing professionals are signed up to contribute. It is now the UK's most popular independent PR blog.

In August 2014 I launched client - marketer matchmaking service www.findmeamarketer.com. Marketers from more than 20 countries have signed up to be found by clients searching for the right fit.

I wrote a column for industry site PRmoment.com (here's the archive) for 2 and a half years, looking at the best and worst of PR each week.

I'm also a former personal trainer and dad to a couple of little ones.
Bragging rights
I was listed in PR Week's 29 under 29 list in 2012 and shortlisted as 'the brightest young social media communicator' in the 2013 UK Social Media Communications Awards.

I worked out of Regus Gloucester for eight months or so and would absolutely recommend it to anybody considering temporary, sporadic or permanent office space. The friendly staff are brilliant - constantly going above and beyond - and there is a great balance between a professional work environment and sociable atmosphere. The Business Lounge - a co-working space on the ground floor - is a great place to work and network, set against a beautiful backdrop in Gloucester Docks.
