Shipmate Spotlight - Arron Brown

1. What quote do you live your life by?

I struggled with this one – one I’ve come across recently is something that I try and live by, I’m always trying to push myself in life and work - “Do the best you can until you know better. Then, when you know better, do better”.

2. Ten years ago, what did you think you’d be doing now?

I’ve always been interested in marketing & business, but I would have been 19 then so I probably didn’t think too much about what I wanted to do – a professional footballer would have been nice!

3. What’s the one thing you couldn’t live without?

I live, eat, and sleep football so probably that!

4. What are you listening to/ reading/ watching at the moment?

I have quite an eclectic taste in music, I’m listening to a lot of 80’s & 90’s rock at the moment – Rolling Stones, and a massive Oasis fan. I have a habit of starting books and not finishing them, I lose interest quite quickly if it doesn’t grab me. I like boring books about business and psychology though.

5. What do you like to do in your spare time?

I enjoy cooking and gardening – that makes me sound old and boring! I like to keep fit so enjoy the gym, running, and playing football when my fitness levels allow it.

6. What’s your favourite thing about agency life?

Every day is different, it’s also very relaxed. I like to work on different things, it’s something that stimulates my mind.

Generally being in a creative environment is good for your progression, mundane jobs aren’t good for the brain.

7. What’s the coolest digital marketing trend you’ve seen lately?

Conversion rate optimisation is an interesting and growing topic in our industry, subtle changes can make a big impact on ROI. Often clients want more traffic, but there’s just as much value getting more out of what you’ve got.

8. What’s your previous working experience?

I’ve worked in digital since I left Uni, so it’s all I know really – I’ve done quite a lot in that time though, I’ve tinkered with web development & design but it wasn’t really for me.

9. What are you working on at the minute that we should know about?

We are working on loads of exciting projects at the moment, there isn’t really one in isolation. We do have some interesting new services that we are about to add to the site, stay tuned!

10. What are you excited about during the next year at TBB?

Continued growth, and delivering great results for our clients.
