The industry has really developed in this time with new technologies and trends, which is something Media Jelly is always keeping up to date with and making the most of.
It has always been Ben’s dream to start a marketing company, and when he recently turned 30, he decided that now was the ideal time to do it. After all, life starts at 30, right? In May this year, after several years of fitting work into his spare time, Ben took the leap to commit to Media Jelly on a full-time basis which is reaping rewards for him already. He now has a huge opportunity to put his knowledge and expertise that he has gained throughout 13 years in the industry to full use.
