What Our Clients Say...

As the MD of an international dating agency, and operating in the sector we do, public profile is incremental to my business. After having my fingers burned working with another agency who managed my linked in, I was incredibly cautious. Andy took time to listen to my concerns and after several months of me basically procrastinating - and thinking I’d suddenly create time to post - Andy and I started working together. Not only did he quickly pick up the tone of how I wrote, he quickly had a grasp of our business and curated content for my linked in. Within the first couple of posts, we had gained client enquiries and also a new ambassador. Every zoom meeting is a joy and my views and followers are growing. The only thing not in my favour, is that I don’t like Lego. If you are having any hesitations about working with Andy, just don’t. Sigh the contract and start living your best life LinkedIn content writing free!

If LinkedIn was Middle Earth then Andy would no doubt be Gandalf. He is a wise being who likes to roam about guiding less informed individuals (hobbits) along the safest and quickest path to victory (engagements) I was basically Bilbo.. I had no idea what to do or how to navigate this scary unfamiliar world. Thanks to AnDalf.... I have a much better understanding of how it all works and am seeing my engagements increase all the time. He's very easy to talk to (even without one of the lost seeing stones) and is always on hand to offer wise council via WhatsApp or email. We also have a weekly call to discuss positives and negatives from that weeks content. Very happy to recommend Andy and would urge anyone else seeking to recover the lost gold of Erebor or if you just want to boost your linked in following and write great content to get in touch with him!

Energy. That's what I think of when Andy Barden appears on my screen. Andy has more energy than anyone I know. And it is apparent in everything he does. Andy is passionate about his company, the causes he fights for and his work, and I love that. People should be passionate about what they do. I'm glad that Axentia has been a part of Andy's journey and hope that our paths cross in the future.

Andy's persistence, began to intrigue. So I began to take note listen and realised that my ignorance and my belief I knew it all, (I'm an old salesman) was shown how wrong one can be. I began to engage, even ventured to converse with him, and WOW what an eye opener. the realisation that you can teach an old dog new tricks was amazing. Andy then asked me to give an honest review on his training program and sent me the product for comment. This where it gets difficult, so to keep it simple, FANTASTIC, concise and to the point, the program helps you and guides you to relook at what you have conditioned yourself into believing what is right and helps you see, in some parts the obvious that we tend to overlook when we have our blinkers on, and gently instructs you into taking a fresh look and showing you the right way to get and keep getting your message out there. Brilliant product, worth every penny

Andy first captured my attention with his split videos of multiple personalities...from there I was captivated and drawn to this unconventional content. For my own requirements I was looking for someone to help pilot my online video content, take care of all the bits that put me off doing it for myself, the editing, subtitles etc. We worked closely to create an idea of content delivery that was unique to my needs. Andy attention to detail, customer needs and delivery far exceeded my expectations, he is a pleasure to dialogue with, asking all the right probing questions and always attentive. I actually can't recommend Andy enough for any of his services. thank you for all your hard work and effort, I know I haven't been the easiest to deal with, not really knowing how or what I wanted to deliver.....just that I needed to deliver some quality content.

This is the ultimate guide for anybody looking at starting out, or rethinking how they use LinkedIn. Andy delivers the perfect balance of sage advice and his inimitable style to really drill down into how you should prepare your LinkedIn profile and what/who you should be engaging with and why. I particularly like the chronological approach to this. It certainly opened my eyes to how I need to use LinkedIn moving forwards and some rookie mistakes I am making. Wholeheartedly recommended and I'm looking forward to putting the learnings into practice!

We always look to work with people within businesses who are able to deliver on every promise they make and Andy is one of those people. Every interaction is fun but also productive and I really feel like we are in a safe pair of hands when Andy or his team are working on a project with us. Great fun to work with, incredibly knowledgeable and a bloody nice bloke to boot.

Andy is organised, professional and intuitive and has a way with words. This all comes together in a great package when it comes to social media content preparation and platform management. His attention to detail and client research goes above and beyond and makes the content he produces feel tonally on point and relevant to the client. I highly recommend Andy if you are looking for support with your social content and channels.

I have been working with Andy for a couple of months now, he definitely delivers what is written on the packet. He's extremely reliable, consistent and continuously comes up with great material. He has really shown my personality through posts, he truly understands my passion for mental health and the importance of supporting children which he shares daily. Thanks Andy.

Every now and again, someone appears in your dm's that makes you think... oooh... they seem a decent kind of bloke, let me find out a bit more. It doesn't happen often. But it did with Andy. We've been working together for 3 months and I can safely say that my business pivot would be lingering somewhere in a dark corner if it hadn't been for him. Less of a pivot, more of a ungraceful twist that ended up wtih nothing apart from me looking a bit embarrassed. He's a guy that knows his stuff, has a brain that thinks as sideways as mine and explains things in a way that make sense to me. The best bit - a potential client Googling me and my LI profile in my new business name was the first to appear. That's what I call a tangible success.

I was recommended to Andy from a family member with a business in construction who’s content he creates. Andy was taking care of their social media pages, something I was not looking for at the time for my business but I decided to enquire anyway. A lot of conversations between myself and Andy to get my content set up and we got started within a month. After a couple months and a fair few tweaks Andy’s work has now started to pay off. The end goal I had in mind being to connect with new people, build working relationships with new clients which would hopefully lead to an increase in work load which is now starting to happen. I knew going into this that it may not be an instant success but with patience and Andy’s creativity it has worked out better than I originally thought it would. I also feel with Andy being available via message and frequent video calls this helped to change things as we went on to get it correct as what works for others doesn’t always work for you so it is important to have someone like Andy there to guide you and advise what changes may or may not work. Think Unconventionall.

Ditch the 'Tick Box'

We don’t do “Tick Box" social media so if it doesn’t drive attention, our team won't create it. If it's not creating a conversation, it doesn't belong on a social networking site

Making it 'Inclusive'

The mission is to make your brand completely inclusive and accessible to everyone regardless of their personal limitations, so that no one is excluded!

Making you 'Memorable'

We make you memorable for the right reasons, so that your brand receives the attention it needs to make an impact. Everyone included and no one left behind.

What Inspired 'Think Unconventionall'?

The story started with Andy’s Autistic son Jacob.

When the family realised his wonderful outlook on life resulted from his unique neurodiversity and engaging personality, it changed the way they engaged with the people around them. It completely reinvented the way Andy coached and mentored his teams because he now believed in a different way. First came the Unconventionall Boss, then Unconventionall Apparel was launched to build a supportive tribe who celebrate the unconventional journey we all walk through life.

We couldn’t stop there though! As a team we were wearing our belief, now it was time to get businesses living and breathing inclusivity through their online presence and how they communicate in their space. We have taken the core beliefs of the Unconventionall brand and built a company that is designed to help businesses finally put their brand on the social map, in an accessible way.

Since 2019, we’ve been creating engaging content that links everyday situations with a clear business message to bring value to our own audiences, and now we are looking to do that for your business
