We recognise that every business is different, so we tailor our packages for each client. This means you pay for what you need, rather than services you don’t.
Whatever your project, we’ll tailor a package to suit you: business strategy, marketing, web design and SEO, IT consultancy, HR services, accountancy and bookkeeping, commercial support and training.
The packages and pricing below are for small businesses. If you are a larger business, then we will tailor a package to best meet your business needs. Please get in touch to find out more.

From direct to digital and from push to pull strategies, our marketers focus on getting the balance right for your business and establishing metrics that will enable you to monitor and evaluate your return on investment (ROI).
We analyse your activity to see how we can leverage this to capture new clients. Do you have the balance between information, entertainment and sales right? Are you including a call-to-action in your posts? Do you have followers/fans who are also in your industry who you could engage with and cross-promote each other’s products and services? Are you boosting posts and targeting them at the right audience. We analyse your accounts and produce a report with recommendations for any change of tactics to drive sales to your business.
Before we start to manage your social media, we need to develop a strategy and put a plan in place. We meet with you to discuss and agree a strategy and plan for your chosen platforms. The detail includes when to post and how often, your content strategy and what to budget for advertising.

We manage your social media platforms for you: update your profiles, post, pin and tweet as your company, respond to comments, questions and interactions, notify you of important feedback and enquiries and accurately measure results so we can tailor posts and tweets to what works best for your business.
Are you new to the world of social media? Or perhaps you haven’t used it for business? Are you having trouble getting to grips with how to promote your company on the different social media platforms? Whether you’re looking for one-to-one training, a public course or on-site training for your team, we will find a solution to fit your budget.
Whenever you engage with an audience, you need content: be it written, visual or audio; printed or digital. Content should be informative, instructional or persuasive (or a mix depending on the audience) but always it needs to be engaging. If content is not your forte then our copywriters, visual creatives and production experts are here to help you.
Blogging shows your clients that you are an expert in your field. It is also great for search engine optimisation (SEO). We help you to plan your blog calendar and make sure your content is relevant to your market, interesting to read and topical. If you need help to promote your blogs on your social platforms, we will help with that too.
We use your customer database for an email marketing campaign to directly target people who have already expressed an interest in what you do. We would tailor make the design and content of the emails with you and decide how frequently to send them out. We will be able to see who has opened the email, how many clicked through to your site and this way measure the success of the campaign and your ROI.
Fees for email marketing campaigns vary depending on volume and frequency. Please let us know the size of your database and we’ll be able to give you a price based on this.
We will set up and manage your PPC campaigns. Prices vary depending on the complexity of the campaigns and the platforms you choose. The pricing below is based on a single Google AdWords campaign.
