Who We Are

We could talk about our awards. About how much we’ve grown since 2006. About the work, we’re most proud of. But we won’t. Not yet. Because that’s not what makes a leader. Real leadership comes from knowing when to talk – and when to listen.

And that’s how we’ll work with you. Because we know you’re a leader in your industry. It’s why we’ll treat you not just as a client, but as our partner. It’s why we’ll seek, respect, and value your input. It’s how we’ll build the trust that allows us to deliver our most effective work. Because when our industry leadership meets yours, we’ll get the results we both want.

How to structure a digital marketing strategy

Data-driven approach

A great digital marketing strategy starts with a data-driven approach. We work with your marketing team to understand the long-term and short-term objectives of your business. During our initial sessions, we will find out as much as possible about the successes and failures of previous marketing campaigns. We believe that understanding business objectives and your target audience are integral to improving your digital marketing success. We will help you to:

  • Define your goals
  • Define your target market
  • Produce KPIs
  • Develop a timeline
  • Build your campaigns
  • Analyse the data

Our digital marketing team use a number of different tools, such as Google Analytics, Google Search Console, Screaming Frog and AHrefs to get a better understanding of how your website is currently performing. This will allow us to develop a really in-depth digital strategy that enables digital growth and helps you to improve your customer digital experience.

We will produce an in-depth digital strategy proposal that has a roadmap to achieving your business objectives. Whether you want to achieve long-term visibility, short term success or a mixture of the two, we can develop a single or multi-channel strategy that aligns with your budget and time frames.

Developing your digital marketing campaign

If you’re a B2B company, your approach to digital marketing will be different to a B2C company and vice versa. There are many marketing channels to explore, test and build upon to maximise your business revenue.

Google Shopping: Google shopping ads are great for businesses in the B2C sector. You can create online ads that reach potential customers exactly when they display interest in the products and services.

Retargeting: If a user has already visited your website, then retargeting is a great way to ensure that they remain interested in your products and services.

PPC: Pay per click advertising is great for both B2B and B2C customers. When a user searches for a keyword that is relevant to your product or service, you can bid against competitors to appear in the Google adverts at the top of the search engine results page.

Social Media: Paid social media is a really visually engaging form of advertising. You can put your brand in front of highly engaged users on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.

SEO: SEO is a long-term strategy that will drive highly-qualified visitors to your website exactly when they are searching for your products and services. SEO helps to increase brand awareness, your website’s user experience and increase conversions.

Email: Email marketing helps you to send a personalised message to a targeted audience who have signed up to your mailing list. This can improve customer relationships and retention and keep your brand at the forefront of their mind.

Analysing and reporting on your data

Once your campaign has started we will continually analyse the data to understand what is working and what isn’t working.

We build custom reports using Data Studio so that you can see how your campaign has performed at a granular level. Our reports focus on your core KPIs so that you can easily report back to your internal team on what has happened throughout the month.

We can integrate reporting tools such as STAT, Facebook Ads, Google Search Console and Google Ads Manager to ensure that we use as many data touchpoints as possible. This allows us to accurately report on your campaign performance.

You will also receive a monthly performance report meeting with one of our senior digital marketing practitioners. In our meetings, we will discuss the work that was completed throughout the month, the challenges that were faced and the plan for the next month. This ensures that we remain aligned with your core business objectives.

We see ourselves as an extension of your team, so will always strive to be transparent so that we are able to deliver the best possible results. If something isn’t working within a digital marketing campaign, then we will provide solutions driven by the data we have collected. That’s what sets us apart as one of the best digital marketing agencies in Manchester.
