Vital’s clients frequently ask about public relations and social media services when they are having a new website built as they often do not have an in-house capability, and the company has responded to this demand.
Andy Topps, Vital Online Studio sales director, said: “Richard has worked closely with us for some time helping to develop our online presence, so we are pleased that he has joined us on a permanent basis.
“From talking to our clients we know there is great demand for these new services which sit very comfortably with what we already offer, and will help us become a major player in the Yorkshire web development sector.
“Richard’s remit is to manage client’s social media sites and email marketing, as well as online and offline news and blogs; and this will be help greatly when pitching for new work.”
Richard Hamer said: “Having worked with Vital Online Studio for some time now I’m keen that the company is able to add to its services as it looks to become a more rounded agency.
Vital Online Studio has a growing client portfolio across Yorkshire, the North East and Lancashire, and has enjoyed its busiest spell for several years.
Its clients include Laver Leisure, Pentland Wholesale and Mabey Hire as well as the award-winning Yorkshire brewery Rudgate.
