If so, the Property & Building Directory has advertising and promotional opportunities suitable for every business and budget. Types of businesses that we currently work with include, for example:

By working together with us, you can benefit from the growing popularity and sector authority of this website, our expanding social media following, and the high profile of Graham Soult, our site’s owner and editor.

Having gained degrees in both architecture and town planning, Graham combines authority on built environment and property issues with, more recently, a strong presence in the retail and digital worlds.

Recently named in Retail Week as the UK’s 12th most influential retail Twitterer, and once characterised by The Journal newspaper as “a cross between Mary Portas and Stephen Fry”, Graham is widely recognised as one of the country’s top retail bloggers and commentators.

He has been interviewed live on the BBC News channel, written columns for Retail Week and the Sage blog, and is the lead content writer across the CannySites.com network of sites, including the Property & Building Directory, where he combines industry knowledge and attention to detail with a warm and accessible style.

Graham is supported by a team of talented and experienced freelance writers, who bring additional skills, knowledge and experience to the site.
