Dr Peter Thompson is the owner of BlueWing Local Marketing. He is highly qualified academically, having obtained a PhD in Science in 1979 and has over 10 scientific publications to his name.
He left research to pursue broader interests in the commercial world, and occupied various senior marketing positions over a period of 24 years. In 2008 he decided that the time was right to open his own Marketing business in the online world.
From 2008 until 2012 Peter was deeply involved in his tourism company, Just Wild Touring, and in 2013 Peter started BlueWing Local Marketing to promote local businesses, offering them effective, yet affordable marketing.
Peter realized that it was important to become a part of the broader Google family help his local clients even more, and so he became a Trusted Google Street View Photographer and a Google Local Guide. The company also purchased a top of the range Google Approved Virtual Reality Ready Camera, to show off small businesses to their potential customers.
At the same time, BlueWing was very pleased to be able to partner with Plush Global Media in Spain, a Google Trusted Agency, which could provide them with a wide spread of Google related services.
BlueWing was now all set to provide the best possible services to small businesses that could make a real difference to their growth prospects. He developed an interest in Google Virtual Tours for Google Maps, and from there he went on to become a Google Trusted Business Verifier and a Google Trusted Street View Photographer, with a Google Digital Marketing qualification.
Peter wanted to create a small, modern digital marketing company that would help local businesses become successful by providing cost-effective solutions for tough economies, like ours, post Covid-19.
Our clients now come from local, neighbourhood businesses, who either do not wish to deal with traditional, large Agencies or who don't have the knowledge or time to do this themselves.
