First, we meet

When we meet we like to understand not only your communication needs, wants and objectives, but the broader picture, the key drivers and core motivations behind the project. Relationships are important to us, because the best results are achieved as a team.

Research

Once we understand the task, we put in time to research and analyse your organisation, your competitors, your sector and relevant past campaigns and strategies. We also look at where there are knowledge gaps, and what further research opportunities may exist.

Plan

Next we discuss your brief and develop creative, strategic and cost effective ideas that we believe offer the best value approach to meeting your objectives. Our recommendations are realistic and effective.

Create Concept

As a team, we develop an overarching creative theme to support your project. We work with you to ensure the creative elements truly bring value to the campaign, and so you love the concept as much as we do.

Implement

We believe good implementation is the key to project success. That’s why we are meticulous in project planning and management. We provide regular updates and make sure that we do all that’s needed to get the job done well.

Evaluate

We are passionate about making a positive impact so we monitor project activity all the way through to the campaign period. We evaluate and analyse our work, and provide you with regular reporting on coverage, impact and key campaign wins, as well as future recommendations.
