Online PR News – 07-November-2012 – Cheshire, England – Jonathan Allen Graduated from the Manchester Base of the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy (PJEA) in the summer of 2011, after 12 months of work Jonathan has decided to take the plunge and set up his second business, Social Presence Ltd. The young entrepreneur adds "I feel it’s the right time to set up my first professional business, after the great experience of running a business whilst still at school".
Jonathan's first business, a high end car detailing company, was a great success and he gained a lot of "real world experience". This was the time that he realised running a business was what he wanted to do. He recalls "Back in 2009 I saw a piece on the news about an academy Peter Jones was founding and instantly knew it was the place for me!" Jonathan was one of the first to be accepted at the Manchester academy and started studying in September 2010.
The next nine months would see him learn the basics of accounting & book keeping, business planning & pitching, marketing, and general entrepreneurship. “The academy boosted my self-confidence and gave me the drive and determination to ‘make it’ ”.
After graduation Jonathan secured a job with a local prestige car dealership working within the sales team, and soon realised working for someone else just wasn't an option! Jonathan stayed with the dealership for 12 months and raised enough money to invest in his newest venture.
“Social Presence Ltd has been set up as a client focused online marketing business, we specialise in search engine optimisation, Google Adwords management and social media. Our services are designed for small and large businesses alike.” Jonathan is passionate about online marketing and is ambitious to grow this relatively small venture in to a larger group of specialist marketing businesses!
