Novia Financial asked us to help them with their Social Media. They provide Financial Advisers with a comprehensive ‘wrap’ service – everything they need to manage investors’ portfolios – so their target market is wide, including Advisers and their clients, as well as many other stakeholders.

We developed a new Social Media strategy for them based on ‘Thought Leadership’, and implemented it through a new organisation, Novia IQ, designing and building a website www.novia-iq.co.uk

We support them with the ongoing development of this. The whole campaign has been hugely successful in every way: SEO, engaging with stakeholders, building the brand and driving sales.

It has helped position them strongly for the post-Coronavirus market – in fact we have run workshops for them, for their sales employees and Adviser-clients, on how to get the best out of, and do business through, LinkedIn and other Social Media.

"Marcom’s skills at marketing are superb, and their resources are comprehensive and completely professional. They provided us with the strategic planning and implementation required to create a strong and growing presence on social media, without ever losing site of the commercial and wider needs of the business."

Bill Vasilieff, CEO, Novia Financial PLC

Integrated Print Solutions

Getting to the top of google is the single most important task of marketers in this industry!

Integrated Print Solutions are a leading UK manufacturer of direct mail, integrated labels and cards, NCR sets, pads and books as well as cheques and business forms.

They enjoy strong and long term customer relationships, but nevertheless, coming top of google on a wide range of phrases is vital if they are to continue being the first call for any hard-pressed print buyer.

So we designed their brand and website, setting them up with a platform which they could develop themselves over time, to ensure their Search Engine Marketing produced the results they needed.

This is an ongoing task, requiring constant input and development, so they have trained themselves up and are now expert at the requirements of Search, and are able to respond in real time as the market, and google, changes.

"They set us up, helped and advised us through the process, and used their in-depth understanding of Search and all aspects of digital marketing to make a real difference to how we achieved the great results we have experienced – and continue to see!"

Our clients Nanopharm planned to run a Conference in San Francisco for their industry but lacked the resources to put it together. They had a booking at a suitable venue, and asked us to manage all aspects of the invitations, publicity and presentation.

We therefore came up with a logo and a style for the Conference which ran as a theme throughout the event.

We created a website which we wrote, designed and optimised for key Search terms, then supported through an email campaign and online advertising to target groups using social media.

We also helped liaise with the speakers and produced the event programme, along with the badges, lanyards and display graphics, and supported Nanopharm team members in their work to ensure everything was prepared and ready for them.

The Conference was a huge success and exceeded Nanopharm’s expectations, and is now a regular event in their calendar.

"I want to congratulate you on helping us put together a wonderful package and marketing piece for InspireMe. It has been executed brilliantly and I am grateful for your support. You collaborated excellently with my own team to help bring this together."

‘NPA are an independent, award-winning, multidisciplinary consultancy with complementary expertise in Environmental Assessment, Landscape Architecture, Ecology and Visualisation.’

It was important that all employees were involved, because the website reflects their vision and values, and so many of them are involved in the new business process.

Process:

  1. Mission, Vision and Values analysis
  2. Search Term analysis
  3. Website scoping
  4. Design, build and launch
  5. Ongoing SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)

1. Mission, Vision and Values: we ran workshops with all the employees to establish their MVV and to ensure that the new website would be aligned with these. We felt this was an important part of the process, because they are highly qualified specialists who ought to be consulted, to have their say in the messages and what it says about them. This way what they communicate to clients (current and prospective) would be congruent with what we produced, and they would have a deeper understanding of, and respect for, the company with whom they have chosen to make their career.

2. Search Term Analysis: we spent time considering these, both from NPA’s perspective and from their clients and prospects, arriving at an understanding of how the website should be structured to meet the wide range of Searches and visitor requirements.

3. Website scoping: we spent time discussing the website, considering the User Experience (UX) and Journey, in order to arrive at a comprehensive site which was optimised to meet everyone’s requirements.

4. Design, build and launch: the website design was carefully created and tested to give visitors the best experience of NPA’s areas of expertise and business. It was built on WordPress using code that google would find easy to search and rank on the Results pages – a key part of SEO. The copy was written by the client following our guidelines and direction, and they supplied the photography too.

5. SEO: we drew up a campaign plan targeted at key Search Terms. To manage this we set up a programme of SEO activities which NPA create and implement themselves, under our guidance and direction.

The new NPA website was launched in March and, although it is too early at the time of writing to compare visitor statistics against those of the previous site, it looks as if it will perform well in Search and has delighted everyone involved.

"Marcom understood our requirement to create an up-to-date proactive marketing tool, as well as the importance of ensuring all employees were on board with the new strategy and website. They worked closely with us throughout the process and I’m delighted with our new website. I look forward to developing the SEO of the site with Marcom and increasing our enquiries and conversions."

As professional project management experts, A2D specialise in change and transformation, all manners of risk management and data and IT security.

Over a series of in-depth meetings we looked at A2D from different angles – their clients, prospects and other stakeholders – as well as analysing the competitive environment and their legacy and development plans.

We advised them on their strategy, positioning, messages, branding and SEO, which resulted in us completely renewing their website and marketing materials.

The website is based around landing pages which answer a specific set of Search Terms. They are each optimised for SEO and marketed individually, because the many business areas are separated from each other by client needs.

At top 100 firm of lawyers with a 230 year history in the City of London, Wedlake Bell provide a full legal service to clients ranging from private individuals to large corporates.

We worked with them over several years to develop their on and offline marketing. On our advice they retained their logo, which is well known, and they now project an image which is modern, professional, sophisticated, learned, dynamic, client-centric, helpful, smart and attractive, without being seen to be old fashioned, arrogant or complacent.
As part of this process we created a new website which communicated these values, as well as delivering the elements we identified with them as being relevant and important to clients, prospects and other stakeholders – in a clear, simple and search-efficient way.
We also updated their printed material to ensure that it was benefit led, and worked harder for them than their previous brochures and other collateral.
