Plugged In Media was conceived by two of the brightest sparks in the media industry right now. Boasting hugely successful editorial and marketing backgrounds, Sam, James and the team effectively cover every aspect of improving a business or product’s digital presence. Whether it’s creating informative press releases to be sent out to our huge database of contacts, whipping up the perfect strategies for your social media platforms, supplying world-class imagery or developing an optimised website, we’re the guys to talk to. We pride ourselves on our transparent approach, working to develop long-term relationships with our clients, not just one-night stands.
From a very early age, Sam knew he wanted his career to involve cars. Following brief work experience stints at both Autocar and Fast Car magazines, his natural talent in both writing and photography soon shone through, leading him to cut his teeth with a three-year stretch as Features Writer for the UK’s largest Japanese tuning magazine, Banzai. Alongside James, Sam has developed EV Performance, along with taking on freelance PR campaigns for an ever-expanding amount of clients he’s met through the automotive world. Sam regularly takes to the track, has an unashamed obsession with the Nurburgring Nordschleife, and a self confessed weakness for ageing Hondas. Across his numerous clients, Sam’s work is viewed by over half a million people each day. And counting…
With over 12 years of marketing and web development experience, James has harnessed his skills to help steer countless national and international companies to commercial success. Building his expertise from the very start of the digital boom, James continually adapts his business and marketing strategies to ensure he keeps on top of the very latest digital trends. A certified Google Partner and social media specialist, James’ career has spanned the publishing, software, agricultural, retail and real estate industries, with his most recent role being Head of Marketing, Development and Films for Unity Media plc. This covered the company’s portfolio of five renowned automotive magazine titles, along with some of the UK’s biggest business-to-business trade magazines. Personally, James has a healthy interest in cars and the environment, which lead him to develop one of the world’s most popular electric vehicle websites, EV Performance.
