Prior to forming their business, this company were, and still are, professional commercial and social photographers with a passion for using the power of the internet to communicate with clients and showcase their work. In 2011 they were invited to join an innovative photography programme by Google and developed long term relationships with Google, major sporting venues and a number of national and local clients.
As the program became more mature they realised that business owners needed increased support to maximise the beneﬁts to them. They recognised that traditional advertising media was expensive, lacked measurement and was not particularly effective. They also identiﬁed that small/medium, local businesses had an opportunity to use existing and new technologies, many of them free, to compete effectively to get noticed by much larger, established brands with bigger budgets.
This company offers a programme of support to help local businesses attract customers and build trust within their client base. The major search engines are constantly altering their strategy, developing new products and services while moving resources to meet this shift. However, the majority of businesses are not aware of the opportunities available or how to capitalise this growing area of marketing.
The most successful businesses recognise that online marketing is essential to build long term relationships with customers. Recent research shows that the shopping habits of today’s customer is changing with rapid growth in the use of mobile devices and social reviews inﬂuencing purchasing decisions. Whilst a company website is still the foundation upon which a business’s online presence is built, the ability to attract customers, build brand awareness, trust and conﬁdence means that an effective social media strategy and online Marketing strategy is required. They combine new technology developments, great photography and insight into how businesses get found online is the basis of their approach. The company also have a national network of trained photographers and a central team of social media experts ready to support local businesses once the sales agent brings in new business.
