Trig: a Social Marketing Disrupter That’ll Save You Cash!

“Ray – you’ve got to come down to Wales and see the business we’ve got started in!”   It seems a long way back in time: that trek down to South Wales!  I had eventually agreed to go and see what my sister and brother in law had been on about. A social networking site that doesn’t make you change your habits and pays you back rather than paying Zuckerberg!
