Who’s behind comms2point0?

Darren Caveney and Dan Slee.  Want to know more? Read about us.

When did comms2point0 start?

We launched the site back in 2011 but had been plotting and planning it for a while before then.

What made you want to create it?

We’d both been sharing links and comms stuff via twitter and email for a while.  The back catalogue of brilliant ideas, new tools and case studies we were collacting needed a home.  So we decided to build somewhere to store and share it in a more easily accessible way and actively encourage teh comms community to get involved, share and make full use of the resources on tap. Hence comms2point0.

What exactly is comms2point0 and what does it do?

comms2point0 is a free online resource for  creative communicators.  Now home to over 700 posts packed with tips, reviews, advice, tools, case studies  - comms2point0 has evolved into a resource to help comms professionals keep up to speed with all that’s interesting and new in the world of strategic and digital communications. 

Recently it’s been described as ‘a must read for every public sector comms person’.  We were quite chuffed with that description.

Is it your full time job?

It is for Dan.  

How big is the comms2point0 community?

comms2point0 has a large and loyal community of contributors, followers and readers.  Twitter followers (over 8k) and unique visitors (upwards of 6-7k every month) are growing daily. Over a quarter of a million people have visited our site since we launched it.

What platform do you use?

Squarespace.

What theme is it?

Who does your web design/creative?

Where do you get your images from?

Mostly flickr.

Can I use images from your site?

Of course, the flickr images we use are copyright free and so are available to download via the picture credit links you’ll find at the bottom of the post in which the image appears.  If there's no credit, that's because it's one of our own snaps.

We’re happy to share what we create but if you’re going to lift content from the site, please do the right thing and ask for permission first. 

Can I advertise my product/service on your site?
