09 Jul Now an all service agency – we have teamed up with Poppy Design Studio
Jessica Pilkington, Director, has this announcement:
Just before lockdown I went to a local networking event, courtesy of the Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce and met Marie, the owner of Poppy Design Studio, a fellow Northamptonshire company based in Desborough. We talked about our clients – how ours often need design work and new websites and how hers repeatedly ask for copywriting and PR.
A potential match made in heaven we agreed.
So, during lockdown, thanks to our new-found love of Zoom technology we have been meeting, talking, and planning.
I’ve found through experience that it is a dangerous move to recommend a third-party company to your client if you don’t know and trust them. If it goes wrong we are the ones that look bad – how can you be trusted if your recommendation is poor?
So, by really getting to know Marie and her team during this period of lockdown, and working together on initial projects, I can be confident that we are equally committed to customer care and great at what we do. We have a similar ethos and this means we can start recommending each other without hesitation.
Poppy Design Studio redesigned their own website during lockdown and then worked their magic on ours – treating us to a brand-new website, complete with Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), graphics and a fresh focus on the user experience. We love it.
In turn we rewrote the website content for Poppy Design Studio’s new site – ensuring key words are strategically used and placed to boost SEO (which simply means boosting the visibility of a website on platforms such as Google and Internet Explorer).
Both our companies are now really committed to working together. We already have joint clients and we have plans to launch a monthly networking event later this summer which will allow businesses from across the UK to attend a virtual event, share ideas and learn about marketing. We’ll keep you posted on this front.
Here is a little more information about Poppy Design Studio: They are a company based in Desborough, Northamptonshire, and they focus on website redesigns and graphic design. This summer they celebrate their fifth anniversary.
Marie Baker, owner and MD of Poppy Design Studio, is as excited about our collaboration as I am: “We are already working well together, have been recommending each other to our clients and have a very similar outlook and approach to work. Many of our customers ask for help with their website content, blogs and social media. Some also want press coverage and PR campaigns. Now we have a trusted partner and can confidently offer the whole package to all our customers. Let the collaboration continue!“
Great to be working together Marie.
