We like to share our thoughts on matters relating to the integrated marketing services we offer – including marketing strategy, corporate branding, marketing communications, website design and development, digital marketing (search engine optimisation, digital advertising, social media marketing, content marketing, email marketing and marketing automation), and non-digital marketing (advertising, direct marketing, sales promotion, event marketing, public relations and corporate incentives).
We’re all familiar with an inbox full of emails from companies promoting their goods and services – most you probably can’t even remember signing up for, and a lot will seem utterly irrelevant. But have you ever wondered why so many companies still engage in email marketing activity? It’s simple. It’s because effective email marketing works.
A marketing business plan is a company’s overall vision and mission and will include reference to every part of the business including a marketing strategy, that will have an impact on its ability to achieve its goals. Here’s a link to a Business Plan template https://www.gov.uk/write-business-plan to use as a starting point.
Social media marketing has exploded into our lives, both personally and professionally, over the last few years, but there are still many businesses who are wondering exactly what are the benefits of social media marketing are, and whether it’s really worthwhile to invest the time, money and effort to deliver it effectively. Here are some really strong reasons why you should do it.
So, you’ve got a decent website – it’s on-brand, it’s well designed, it’s optimised for search keywords, it’s full of relevant content, it’s easy to navigate, you’re getting lots of hits, and you’re even receiving some decent sales enquiries. Well done! It’s now time to turn the screw on the competition via digital marketing. (If you don’t have a decent website yet, make that your number one priority…).
Public Relations (PR Campaigns) – when it goes wrong it can be disastrous, but when it goes right – like really right – it can bring a smile to the glummest of faces and, more importantly, it can create a whole lot of extra business opportunity. That’s when you need the help of a London marketing agency to help you.
I‘d like to go back in time, only about fifteen years or so, and say to someone ‘Yeah, I saw his status update and liked it. Then I poked him and he blocked me’. I’d love to see the expression on that person’s face. Would they wonder what on earth I was talking about? Understanding the digital marketing mix that we now have would of been unpredictable.
Just about everyone these days is on social media. But being busy tweeting or getting likes doesn’t necessarily mean it’s adding value to your business just ask any digital marketing agency. And just because everyone else is doing it is not enough of an argument in itself for you to do so too – you have to have a social media plan before you can have a social media strategy.
Your brand is everything that your customers see, hear and feel about your business. It’s not just your logo. It’s the quality of your staff, service or products; it’s how your website looks and what’s in your marketing materials – opinions are formed at every step of a customer’s journey. But it’s not just what you say, it’s how you say it that’s important – and that’s your brand tone of voice.

We acted as the representative for our client in achieving trademark registration and we now offer this service of ‘register a trademark’ to existing and new clients as part of our integrated marketing offering.
It almost goes without saying that it is inconceivable to think of any business that would not benefit from having a better website design – one that helps to fulfil its key objectives, which for most companies is to create sufficient awareness and interest in the products and services that the company is involved with to take the next step (e.g. place an order/ask for more information/request a meeting/etc.).
