success we have achieved

for some of our clients:

  • The objectives

    Crowhurst Park Holiday Village is one of the South East’s leading holiday resorts. The biggest revenue provider for the company is the sale of holiday homes. The directors wanted a system that would provide a steady stream of quality sales enquiries.


    The solution

    A series of landing pages were produced together with an online marketing strategy. A targeted pay per click campaign was implemented using adverts that drove prospects to the landing pages which had strong calls to actions. A custom built CRM system was developed so the directors could monitor the enquiries.


    The results

    The campaign produces around 20 quality sales leads every month from people wanting to purchase holiday caravans, lodges and bespoke log homes costing £300,000 plus.


  • The objectives

    A motorcycle dealership recognised the most successful part of their business was selling good quality used bikes. However, their challenge was finding and purchasing the right motorcycles.


    The solution

    We suggested developing a campaign utilising paid-for social media.

    After researching the market we developed a set of unique selling points which would differentiate Hastings Motorcycles from their competition. A series of online adverts were produced along with a landing page that had a strong call to action.


    The results

    After the campaign ran for one month the results were such that the client increased their media spend by 50%. The marketing has been so successful that the client has opened a new branch.


  • The objectives

    The company were selling their dog cologne and shampoo products through Amazon. The directors wanted more control over the marketing and sales and to retain more profit so they contacted us to develop an e‑commerce website.


    The solution

    We produced a new e‑commerce website which included writing the content, creating the design and then the production. A targeted online campaign was implemented aimed at dog owners throughout the UK.

    In order to build relationships with customers, we produced helpful dog related videos and blogs and added them to the website.


    The results

    Within 3 months of the website going live it was selling more products than Amazon. We are constantly monitoring the website analytics and making refinements to maximise sales.


  • The objectives

    Stamco Building Supplies, a leading builder’s merchant with five stores, wanted an e‑commerce website to appeal to both the residential market as well as the trade. As we’d been their marketing agency for over five years they asked us to develop the website, they wanted it to feature their whole range of over 5,000 products.


    The solution

    The website needed to integrate in real time with their internal stock control software so customers could place orders knowing they were in stock. After the website was produced a marketing strategy was implemented to promote it, this included pay per click campaigns, retargeting, dynamic advertising and content marketing. We produced monthly reports and analytics showing the return on the marketing investment.


    The results

    We split tested the ads and reviewed the website analytics in order to refine the marketing to give the maximum engagement and return on investment. Four months after the website went live the monthly return was over 4 times greater than the marketing spend.


  • The objectives

    Booker & Best - a large building and property maintenance company, wanted to advertise boiler services during the summer months to keep their operatives busy.


    The solution

    We suggested using paid for Facebook and Google ads. A marketing plan was produced that identified monthly activity. A pipeline was also produced that showed the engagement and those who signed up, it also showed the revenue created against the marketing spend.

    A budget was agreed against which the client was hoping to achieve around 30 boiler service sign ups.


    The results

    Over a 3 month period we achieved 208 boiler service sign ups, over 30 of which also joined the Booker & Best 'Best Options Maintenance Plan', this showed a huge return on their marketing investment.
