Busy bees at Straight Marketing

We’ve been super busy here at Straight Marketing over the last few months. Reflecting back on what we’ve achieved, even just over the last month, we’re pretty impressed with ourselves! We thought it would be interesting to share some of the work we’ve been involved in to give you a flavour for what we deliver for our clients.

Email marketing campaigns

We’ve run a series of email marketing campaigns for our IT services client. We designed the emails, wrote the content and sent the emails.

Direct mail marketing campaign

We ran a direct mail campaign on behalf of our dental client. The campaign was aimed at other dental surgeries who could be potential referrers of patients. We wrote the letter and prepared the database.

Publicity campaign

One of our clients has been shortlisted for UK Plumber of the Year. To get to the final he has just 2 weeks to amass as many votes from the public as he can. There are 15 plumbers on the short list and only 5 will make it though to the final. We’ve been busy getting the message out there with flyers, press releases and a busy social media campaign.

[icon type=”arrow-right-alt1″ color=”#26a29a” size=”20px”]  We’ve received press coverage in the Express & Echo, Sidmouth Herald, Midweek Herald with lots of support on Twitter. We’ve still got a few days to go until the voting closing date so are yet to discover how successful we’ve been!

Strategy and marketing plan

We’ve recently been appointed by a manufacturing company in South Wales to help them determine their marketing strategy and plan their marketing activity. We’ve completed a marketing audit, a review of their position in their marketplace and an internal review of their marketing, and are now putting together our recommended plan of action. This company has a great product but they’ve been hiding their light under a bushel.

During July we also completed the following:

  • Built a database from scratch (including contact names)
  • Wrote blogs for six differerent clients/industries
  • Managed 4 Facebook pages and 5 Twitter accounts
  • Managed Facebook advertising campaigns for 2 clients
  • Wrote copy for a new website
  • Wrote and sent monthly email newsletters on behalf of 2 clients and ourselves
  • Wrote an award submission for the Devon Chamber Awards
  • Managed press advertising including booking and advert design

Phew! I think it might be time for a holiday.

We like to keep busy so if you’d like help making your marketing happen please give us a call on 01395 269791 or drop us an email.
