Andrew & Pete
Andrew & Pete, who wrote the foreword for Ultimate Guide to Social Media Marketing, are business partners and best friends (after meeting on the first day of University).
They both always had a passion for business and entrepreneurship, and their ambitions to one day rule the world brought them together. So when they graduated – they decided not to get a “proper job” – but to set-up their own company.
The main aim of their business and their headline programme ATOMIC is to help other small business owners grow and scale their business online. An ATOMIC business is a small AND mighty business. That’s what they believe…. that it’s actually better being small, because you can scale your businesses in better ways, whilst keeping the freedom and flexibility that a small business offers you.
About the book, they said, “If you want to know how to grow your business, using the not-so-new-but-still-ever-changing social media landscape, then this book is for you.” – Andrew & Pete
