Best Marketing Agency in Exeter

Here at Gleave Media we are honoured to have been named as one of the three best marketing agencies in Exeter.

Three Best Rated is a business recommendation website.  It selects what it considers to be the three best businesses within a business category, like marketing agencies, for a given city.  They select businesses based on several criteria such as reviews, pricing, value, trust, general excellence and more are independent of the businesses themselves, consequently making this a really valuable award. Their employees check out businesses they are considering listing for their website, at no stage did they contact us so we had no idea of their due diligence on our business. They only informed us afterwards when they selected Gleave Media Ltd as one of their three best.

Three Best Rated® is an American business based in Austin Texas and was created with a simple goal to find you the top 3 local businesses, professionals, restaurants and health care providers in any city. They check business’s reviews, reputation, history, complaints, ratings, satisfaction, nearness, trust, cost, general excellence using a 50-Point Inspection.

So I like to give a big thank you for selecting Gleave Media, we’re honoured to have been chosen and would also like to  congratulate the other two Exeter Marketing Agencies who were also selected as well.

The Future of Digital Marketing 2013

In July we were doing the rounds of networking events with our 15 minute seminar the Future of Digital Marketing an interactive presentation of 15 minutes highlighting how recent changes in search may effect the listeners profile on Google.  With all the changes happening in search this year and in particular the recent May Google Penguin update it seemed an opportune moment to update our audience in the South West with what they need to be aware of.  As i’m sure you can imagine 15 minutes only gives us the opportunity to scratch the surface, but its a start and if the feedback is anything to go by a well received start.

If you need help to get your Search Engine Optimisation back on track so it is working for your business, then please get in touch through the website here  for a no obligation chat.

GleaveMedia becomes a limited company

GleaveMedia  announces that it will be becoming a limited company from the April 2013 as part of its future development and growth strategy.

Alistair Gleave, the entrepreneur founder of GleaveMedia will become the Company Director, responsible for overseeing the company through this business transition phase and then leading the expansion of the company thereafter.

Becoming a Limited Company is a natural next step for GleaveMedia, which in a relatively short period of time has courted an impressive client base and achieved outstanding successes. Recently GleaveMedia collaborated with Exeter City Council on their ‘Exeter Together’ campaign and as a direct result of GleaveMedia’s involvement in this campaign online engagement increased by over 6000%.

In just 2 years GleaveMedia has established itself within the current marketplace as a reputable, results driven, forward thinking company with huge scope for growth in today’s digital age.  Alistair Gleave said: “This is such an exciting time for GleaveMedia.  Being a digital marketing company with ambition and innovative ideas, the market place offers considerable growth opportunities. Becoming a Limited Company serves as a base for more effective expansion in enabling us to impact and enrich the growth of more businesses through our targeted digital marketing services. Our decision to become a Limited Company is cause for optimism that GleaveMedia will continue to grow at a fast pace and adapt and capitalise in the era of rapid media change. Rest assured however, whilst our company goes through some changes in the coming weeks, GleaveMedia will continue to deliver a comprehensive and professional digital marketing service to our clients as we always have   . . . this will not change

Alistair also co-founded the organisation ‘GrowMyCharity.com’, in which he utlises his digital marketing expertise to provide ideas, tools and resources to help charities and non-profitable organisations grow and operate more effectively. ‘Grow my Charity’ collaborates with national organisations such as the NSPCC and locally based charities like the St Loye’s Foundation.

ExeterTogether enjoys Social Media success with facebook

Exeter TogetherExeter TogetherHere at Gleave Media we recently worked on the Facebook and Twitter platforms with Exeter City Council on their ‘Exeter Together’ campaign which was a stunning success, the people of Exeter were invited to unite and switch their energy bills through the Exeter Together umbrella.

Exeter was one of only five togethers in the UK, the others being Cornwall, UK, Scots and Birmingham and Solihull and the performances provide an interesting insight into the dynamics of collective switching campaigns in small and larger communities. Energy bills have risen by over £700 on average since 2004 – that”s an increase of 140%. According to the Committee on Climate Change, energy bills could go up by as much as £600 as we head into the next few decades of uncertainty.  Exeter Together was not just about saving money, it was about being part of something and making a positive difference.

By its very nature this was a short run campaign focussed on a very targeted area and the success of this campaign on facebook and twitter clearly underlines what can be achieved with proper planning and management. As a direct result of GleaveMedia’s involvement in this campaign online engagement on facebook increased by over 6000%. You can see from the image taken direct from Facebook when we got involved and the net results.

If you want to get your business found on Social Media and need help sorting your Social Media profiles then please get in touch we’d be delighted to help.

Three New Year Resolutions for your Online Marketing Strategy

Teenage girl enjoying winterThe start of 2013 is a great time for starting afresh with your business online marketing plan and the best way to do this is by setting some clear manageable targets and goals. These are our top three new year resolutions for your businesses online marketing.

1. Facebook WILL be part of my customer engagement strategy

As a growing business you simply can no longer afford to ignore facebook, it is growing and evolving at an amazing rate, your audience is active on this site and it is growing fast through mobile and the younger demographics which make great posts with some creative imagery a really good place to start.

2. My business will send at least one targeted email per month

As a business you need to keep in touch with your customers and prospects on a regular basis, you can guarantee if you dont then your competitors will. Setting yourself up to email on a monthly basis is the right kind of timeline to not deluge them but keep in touch – which is exactly what you want.

We run our own email marketing system called mailPDQ a very cost effective tool for collecting data from a multitude of sources and then segmenting this so it can then be used to target a message relevant to the audience, please contact us through the website for a free no obligation trial

3. Blogging will be part of your business engagement strategy

Blogging is a great way to put a personality on your business, not only does it positively help with your search engine rankings but it also allows you to position individuals within the business as leaders or at the very minimum contributors.  By incorporating images and video you can really make this updatebale area of your site almost have a life of its own, i.e. if your factory has a new forklift why not video all that it can do and why its a great addition. Basically think outside the box, the rules have changed…

So if your business can at least start down this route with these three simple steps you will begin to see a clear and accountable result for your actions and if you want help embedding this into a full Digital Marketing Strategy then we are the team to help, please get in touch here.
