Dr Peter Thompson is the owner of BlueWing Local Marketing. He is highly qualified academically, having obtained a PhD in Science in 1979. 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 previously not afford to spend enough money to make a real difference to their growth prospects.
One more technological development gave them an even greater opportunity to get closer to their local business owners. With the ubiquitous presence of Mobile Phones in South Africa, BlueWing could tailor their marketing offerings for use on such Phones. This meant that a potential customer could find a business’s products or services at any time from any place.
And so, BlueWing had finally evolved to its present form – a technologically advanced company, designed to make the marketing of small businesses simpler, more effective and affordable – even for the smallest local business owner.
