Phil Aston is our senior Internet marketing consultant and helps clients with SEOSocial Media Strategy, WordPress, Facebook Ads, Photography, video and live streaming.

“I started in SEO in the mid-1990s and have seen many changes. The ability to let go of what you know and start again has meant I have clients who trust what I do and have been with me for many years.

There is still a myth that SEO people optimise search engines. we don’t, we optimise your web presence, your digital world for your visitors and customers”.

Phil Aston spent 11 years as Operations Director at WPP before moving to Cornwall and starting Genius Loci Media in 2004.

Phil Aston Consulting

I have been involved in marketing for over 30 years so technically I am not a young person! But all the personal brand marketing I do is through Social Media.

The rules of marketing are exactly the same It is just the tools we use have changed, they are faster and more efficient and actually more exciting.

So not to have a social media strategy and to think we need a young person in to do that is flawed thinking. Just the same as saying I don’t know anyone on Twitter so I cannot see a reason to use it. However, millions of people are.

Twitter is great for late availability if you are in Tourism. Just as with Facebook advertising you can easily target people who are interested in what you are actually doing

My core skill when I started Genius Loci Media was SEO. I still do SEO, but it has changed and social media is now part of that mix. It is important to realise that social media is now part of your marketing mix.


Clients count on us every day to help transform uncertainty into possibility.
