We believe in using the right person for the right job, which is why we have developed a network of equally talented professionals to work with.
Because we’re a small business we are passionate about providing a great service at the best price. We have a great understanding of what it is like to run a small business on a budget. Part of our process is to get to know your business and suggest ways to keep your costs down, so that even a small budget delivers great results.
Sometimes you have to pick and choose which bits of your marketing you are going to concentrate on. Below are the various sections we either provide ourselves, or have a network of companies we work closely with and highly recommend.
If you have a website you will need hosting. We do not provide hosting but we have a couple of suggestions.
Managed Hosting and IT support – iSAAC Support offers great specialist care for your Apple. They also offer managed website and email hosting.
Web Design, Build & Manage
Whether you need a new website, refresh, overhaul or simple updates, we can help you achieve what you want.
WordPress is a great platform firstly it’s FREE, but it is also SEO (search engine optimisation) friendly, meaning that you have a better chance of getting a higher listing on search engines like Google and Bing. However, you do need to make sure you keep the core of WordPress and any plugins up-to-date. We can manage this for you if required.
Logo Design & Visual Identity
PosAbilities work with you to develop a whole brand style (or simply a logo) that encapsulates your business personality, and puts you out there in the marketplace with confidence and flair.
A logo doesn’t have to have a graphic it can be text only, but it is worth spending some time or money on getting the right one for your business. The right logo gives the tone for your company.
Whether you are sending out a flyer or handing out business cards, a well-designed layout can make you stand out from your competitors.
Our services include flyers, brochures, posters, business cards, stationary documents, catalogues, postcards, packaging, adverts or any other printed marketing. We can provide you with professional print ready artwork and suggest print options.
We work with local and national printers we know and trust. We can either manage the print for you and we will only charge you for our time, and then the actual price of printing, or you can go direct.
For small print runs, Petaprint in Petersfield offers a great service. For medium quantities, there are some great online digital printers, two that we would recommend are Solopress and Printed (20% off first order if you ask us for a referral). If you have a large print run then it is more cost effective to use a litho printer, like Bishops who offer a great service.
Stock imagery is a cost effective way of using images and Shutterstock have a great collection to pick from. However, if you need product photography or something specific then employing a photographer is going to be essential. Our in-house photographer, Adrian, does our product photography.
For lifestyle images, headshots or more Sarah Sheldrake is our prefered photographer. We have worked with Sarah on a number of projects over the years, and love her work.
Words and content
A well-designed brochure or website will grab the attention of prospective customers, but your copy should be just as engaging. Don’t settle for anything less than the right words at the right time.
Lesley Hussle from Editing Edge has a Fleet Street background and is great at finding the right tone and words.
Bill Young from Bill Blogs is another journalist that not only writes for blogs, but much more.
