+24 marketing hired by ex-Apprentice star

Burnley-based agency +24 Marketing has been appointed to help The Apprentice semi-finalist Neil Clough launch his new company.

+24 Marketing, which operates all over the UK, provides brand management, web design and online marketing services for clients across a range of sectors.

The agency created the website and online marketing strategy for Neil’s new company, NWC Consultancy, which he has been developing since leaving Lord Sugar’s BBC programme last year.

Managing director David Walker will also be joining Neil in NWC Consultancy’s Apprentice-style competition, which is offering other north west business start-ups the chance to win £10,000-worth of business support. David will be bringing his sales and marketing expertise to Neil’s judging panel of experts.

“It was clear when we met that David and I shared the same drive and ethos,” said Neil on the appointment of +24 Marketing.

“The website is a great starting point for my business and had over 15,000 visits in its first day, but +24 Marketing will bring more than online marketing, as David will help choose the winner of my company’s first business support award.”

“I’m delighted to be working with Neil, both to create his site and online sales strategy, and support him in his business venture,” adds David.

“The award is a fantastic way to recognise a small business in the region and this is a strong client to add to our portfolio. I’m passionate about rewarding entrepreneurs so this is a great way to combine business and pleasure!”
