Here at the Department of Marketing we underpin our creativity with strategy, understanding and insight.

The digital world is constantly changing. We help you navigate your way through the noise, identify opportunities and maximise your digital potential.

From web design to SEO, PPC campaigns to re-marketing, our mobile-friendly websites and online ordering portals all show consistent results, returning on investment.

Public & Media Relations

Public & Media Relations

A critical element of what is now termed 'content marketing'. We maximise the power of press releases, case studies, blogs, features and comments.

Written in-house, we pride ourselves on understanding your business before we put pen to paper; we produce valuable and beneficial content.

And we'll be sure to share informative and relevant results with you in a regular report.

Exhibitions

Exhibitions

Face-to-face is still the most popular way of generating strong new sales leads.

From a small pop-up display or roadshow to a purpose built exhibition stand we have handled them all.

And we never forget the importance of pre and post show activities including print/email and digital communication and lead generation follow up. In short, we take away the pain and manage the whole exhibition process!

Lead Generation

Lead Generation

The lifeblood of any business, we can kick-start lead generation and help maintain the flow using a myriad of powerful marketing tools.

From a dedicated lead generation website to an appointment telephone service, we understand the importance of generating the next sale.

Startegy

We immerse ourselves in your business, helping to identify your long-term goals and what's needed to achieve them. We then add marketing into the strategic mix to enable it to happen.

Our strategies and plans are practical and budget conscious.

Social Media

Social Media

Social media is about so much more than followers and likes. Working hand-in-hand with strategy, PR, communications, SEO and web development, it adds real business value.

We start with a plan - the back-bone of social media success, and work with the right tools and platforms for your business. We then create valuable and informative content to maximise your digital footprint!

Reporting comes as standard; minus the jargon and baffling data. And for complete reassurance we offer 24-hour management.

From a studio to an event, products to people, in-action to static; we create imagery that works for you and your audience.

We invest time in briefings and planning to ensure that you and your business are best represented.

Communications

A building block of our industry, communication takes many forms. Our expertise ranges from internal communications to crisis management.

We work with you to develop a thorough communications plan. We deliver advice and training to ensure that you and your team are prepared and stay informed.
