Hi, I am James and this is my Atomic Portfolios webpage. 👋
I am a Director and Co-founder of Lead Kinetics, a digital marketing recruitment agency based in the UK.
...Great, but why did I decide to create Atomic Portfolios?
Over time, I developed a purpose to lead, inspire and help graduates and aspiring marketers like yourself. Marketing is an incredibly exciting career, but it can be overwhelming and super competitive to get into. I want to help you develop and shape an exciting marketing career through practice, testing and experimenting.
Without evidence of your practice, skills and knowledge, it becomes harder for employers to justify an invitation for an interview.
So, how can you increase your chances of getting an interview and securing employment when you're just starting out? Good question. My answer? You can increase your chances significantly via the POWER of a digital marketing portfolio.⚡️
For those of you that have been following me on LinkedIn for 3+ years now, you’ll know I've been banging the drum LOUD for digital marketing portfolios to be more widely used and accepted.
I use LinkedIn to empower and inspire current and new generation marketers to develop the best portfolios possible and to achieve great things in their careers.
I can’t wait to see what you create and have you along for the ride.
Why should you listen to me when it comes to digital marketing portfolios?
I’ve been a marketer for 15+ years now and have been an avid student of the subject ever since. Having worked client-side, agency, and in startups, I’ve been fortunate enough to work in dynamic and exciting marketing teams, developing and learning along the way.
I currently run a business in the digital recruitment sector - I speak to employers every week, I know what they want.
I view and review digital marketing portfolios on a daily basis.
I have my own YouTube channel, where I review digital marketing portfolios.
I feature on various marketing and recruitment podcasts.
I've trained and mentored digital marketing apprentices.
I've written and delivered numerous digital marketing courses for aspiring marketers.
I am a practicing and qualified marketer - we can relate!
In my experiences over the years working with some top, driven and dedicated marketers, I've learnt that the only way you can become a top marketer is to actually practice your craft. I’ve been encouraging aspiring marketers to do just that for quite a while now - keep going, keep practicing and enjoy the learning process, it’s one of the best parts of the journey!
I really can't wait to see what you can create!
