Twenty years ago, Creative Media was a design agency. But the world has changed, and so have we. Today, we prefer to call ourselves a growth agency. We use creativity to further business objectives, as part of a strategic approach to design that goes way beyond aesthetics.
You don’t have to take our word for it when we say that our expertise drives growth for our clients; our case studies are full of the proof. Frequently this growth comes from new markets, new methods and revised propositions –unexpected sources that deliver uncommon results.
Creative Media’s comprehensive growth strategy includes advanced digital expertise to help you drive growth. From intuitive e-commerce to data-driven SEO and PPC campaigns, we help our clients to successfully navigate the often mind-boggling world of online business.
Accustomed to working at the highest level as well as integrating with teams, our managing director Marcus Isherwood is equally comfortable around a boardroom table with shareholders, and on the factory floor. His astute yet informal approach enables effective communication for all ears.
In business, it’s easy to become blinkered to what’s happening beyond your own little corner of the universe. With an impressive breadth of expertise, Creative Media brings independent knowledge of different products, services and markets with the potential to shake up your thinking and help you explore new avenues for growth.
This phase is designed to establish a full understanding of your business market, positioning and objectives. Afterwards, Marcus will set out recommendations for moving forward and give you time to consider these. We are confident you’ll like what you hear, so we won’t ask you to commit to the process until this phase is complete.
Phase Two is where we examine the nuts and bolts, taking the information gathered in phase one and working out how it all fits together to maximise your marketing performance. Using over 20 years’ experience in diverse markets across the globe in companies of all sizes, this is where we add the value to your proposition.
In Phase Three we roll our sleeves up! Armed with a thorough understanding of your business and full sign-off on the planning process, we’ll support you and your team as you embark on a new phase. Activity typically follows the planning roadmap created specifically for your organisation and all stakeholders are engaged throughout the process.
Ensuring you have return on investment is just as critical for us as it is for you. It secures our future business together, delivers value to your business and proves we are doing the right things. Sometimes the route has to be altered to take account of changes in the economy. We are always of an agile mind and open to challenge based on continual analysis of performance vs projections.
