A first time for everything
Hello and welcome. If you’re exploring the world of Stand Agency, you’ve just landed on Standpoint, our blog, and you’re in the process of reading our first ever post!
First posts are always exciting. They’re a chance to shape your identity and give a hint of the personalities behind the business. We thought you might like to know what we’ve got in store over the coming weeks and months, so we’re going to tell you what and what not to expect from Standpoint so hopefully you’ll want to come back again and again to read what we have to say.
Standpoint will be a heady mix of the interesting and topical, with the occasional frivolous post thrown in for good measure. This isn’t the place to find regurgitations of the latest news or opinions from the loudest commentators, and it won’t be a spot for industry analysis. This is a stage for open and honest discussion on real issues that are relevant to you, our clients and the team at Stand Agency.
Whether it’s our take on boosting British business or baking perfect cupcakes (we mentioned frivolous), you’ll be reading our opinions.
We’ll try our very best not to indulge in any shameless self-promotion, but if we have some fantastic news to share, you’ll probably read about it here.
Finally, Standpoint isn’t just about us. We’d love to hear your opinions too, so feel free to let us know if you agree, disagree or simply have an amazing cake recipe to share.
