Social media

Nearly 90% of Kiwis aged 15+ use social media.

We work with Facebook, Instagram, Google+, LinkedIn, and Twitter daily alongside other channels - utilising advertising technologies available on these platforms to deliver cost effective and measurable marketing for our clients.

Social media in marketing today has increased the importance for brands to build deep, meaningful and lasting relationships with customers and is an important part of brand building, reputation management, lead generation and customer communication. It is constantly changing the way we use the internet. Staying on top of this is a full-time job. Call us to help clear the confusion and frustration around social media, and get results instead.

Did you know

Once you’ve ‘spoken’ with prospects once, you can also keep in touch with them via the Facebook advertising technology. This is called re-marketing. Facebook makes your adverts more relevant for the people who see them, and typically brings real sales leads. We have developed a proven stepped approach to re-marketing which allows you to generate a higher ROI.

Website conversions and optimisation

Did you know most websites are underperforming?

Most businesses don't continually test and improve their sites, and it is costing them sales.

The headline used on a page alone has increased revenue by as much as 1200% in some cases and the colour of your “take action” button could be costing half your sales.

We work with you to identify the areas for easy quick wins and help put a process in place to ensure ongoing optimisation. This ensures you are enjoying the maximum return on every advertising dollar you spend while getting the edge over your competition.

List building and email marketing

The unfortunate truth for almost every website is that most visitors will come and go, never to return.

One of the advantages of building an online presence is the ability to capture many of these visits, and build a list of qualified prospects you can keep talking to.

Email marketing has been shown to provide the highest return on investment of any marketing dollar spent.

We can work with you to set up automated sequences so you can set and forget, or help with your monthly mail out. We also have a team of expert writers that make content creation easy.

Traditional (offline) media

Print media, radio, TV, brochures, direct mail, outdoor media and so on...

We can design and create traditional marketing collateral for you such as brochures, print advertising, business cards, radio commercials, etc. However, you can expect to enjoy better than traditional results.

Knowing where to put your marketing dollar can be tricky. There are strategic brand associations, reach, platform and audiences to consider amongst many other things. As well as these considerations, with today’s marketing environment, the advertising dollar is often stretched very thin.

This is where our knowledge of these channels alongside the 'integrated marketing' planning approach we take can ensure maximum impact for minimum investment.

Design

A picture is worth 60,000 words. Literally.

The human brain processes images 60,000 times faster than it does text. In fact, 90% of information sent to the brain is visual. So, what are you saying to your customers?

Visuals can increase brand engagement and message saturation. For that reason, design and visual communication is a vitally important part of the conversation, both on and offline.

As well as Noel and Andy, our in-house designers, we work alongside a range of other designers in New Zealand, all with their own talents and strengths. We can also work with your existing designer if you have one.

Our understanding of consumer behaviour and brand management coupled with these talents, ensure we are achieving maximum impact for your brand through design.
