Next under the TMRW microscope is Ben Milsom of BBMO, a one-man digital marketing band.
In a nutshell, what is BBMO and how did you get into it?
BBMO is my digital marketing/creative/project management dream job that I accidentally created with the support of some amazing friends and colleagues.
I started work in the TV industry when I was 19 and bounced around Shepherd’s Bush and Shoreditch, first making TV, then in post-production, then videogame project management, then, naturally, readymix concrete sales and marketing.
For the last 3 years I’ve been working with a colourful portfolio of clients that matches my own varied job history. I share an office, and some work, with my mates at Rise Media.
2. Tell us three things you’re hoping to achieve this year for your company
1 Hiring some new team members to help me keep up with the work.
2 Officially changing the name from it’s stupidly long “proper” name to just BBMO which is how everyone refers to it anyway!
3 Moving the office around because we’ve sat in the same places for 2ish years now and I crave change…
3. Your favourite thing about TMRW?
24/7, safe, secure, warm. It’s been my home-from-home for years and Croydon’s become my young family’s favourite town – mostly for visits to Ludoquist and/or tram-spotting…
4. Favourite Byte Cafe bite?
They do this thing with cucumber, guacamole and chilli flakes…🤫 I’ve said too much!
