Blazen Web Marketing was founded by Mark Reynolds in 2009. Mark, an Online Business Growth Consultant, was born and bred in Bristol, UK, with offices in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire and Chipping Sodbury, Bristol.
Before starting Blazen Web Marketing, Mark worked for a number of small UK businesses, designing, developing, marketing, updating and managing their websites, including numerous e-commerce websites.
Back in 2001 Mark graduated from the Universty of Lincoln, UK, with First Class honours. He started design websites professionally in 2002 and has been mamaging Google Adwords accounts since 2005 helping businesses to advertise on Google.
From 2006-2009 Mark was the Online Marketing & Web Manager for Ecovision, a company that designs, supplies and installs renewable energy solutions to homes and businesses across the UK, including to the Highgrove Estate, the home of Prince Charles.
Founded Blazen Web Marketing
In 2009 Mark established Blazen Web Marketing, a web design and internet marketing company helping businesses grow across the UK. The main driver behind the decision to start the company was seeing so many small UK businesses struggling to use the Internet to increase sales.
It was frustrating to see a great deal of new websites appear that were still failing to truly meet the needs of those companies and their customers. It was time to make a difference and help to use the Internet to grow these businesses.
Blazen Web Marketing was born.
What else do we know about Mark?
Back in 2001, Mark along with his student colleagues won a Regional Royal Television Society Award for the acclaimed documentary ‘Battered Cod’, which Mark produced.
Away from work, Mark has enjoyed volunteering for local sports clubs in the past, helping children play & learn cricket. In 2004 Mark’s cricket volunteering work led to him being awarded the ‘Young Volunteer of the Year’ Award by the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB).
After this, Mark worked part-time for the ECB as a Regional Support Officer for the South-West of England, pro-actively supporting cricket clubs across 5 counties. This was in addition to his full-time work in the world of web design and Internet marketing.
In 2009 Mark was presented with an ICC Centenary Medal by the International Cricket Council, the international governing body for cricket. Mark was one of only 50 people in England and Wales to be given this honour. He was presented with the award by Mike Gatting, ex-England cricket captain.
“Today my focus is on my business and helping UK businesses grow using the Internet” says Mark, “but my heart will never be far away from helping children grow through a love of sport and activity. Those years of volunteering, ever since I was a little boy, have been rewarding for me and hopefully many others.”
