The missing link?

By | Design, Marketing

Social networks are now a big part of the landscape when it comes to branding. Websites are important, but how often do customers or clients visit once they have bought a service? What’s more, they don’t often allow you to have conversation with your audience. So when leading fit-out client Brown & Carroll wanted to combat some misguided market perceptions, they asked us to look at their online options.

After doing some research we established that professional network LinkedIn was the most suitable channel for them. We devised a strategy for managing their reputation and communicating with their target audiences and for the last 6 months have been implementing that strategy with great success. Read More

Making that extra mile count

By | News, Web

At Garda we pride ourselves on working hard to understand our clients and their commercial challenges. We believe that in order to produce our best work and help our clients succeed, we must immerse ourselves in their world. So we were recently delighted to receive a glowing testimonial from Tekne’s MD, Edd Sevestre, validating our approach and the resulting website we produced for them.

“We approached several companies but it was Garda who impressed us the most. They travelled miles to see us and spent hours talking to our workers to better understand our business.

Garda were very patient with us, guided through every stage, understood what we needed and were able to translate it into a polished and professional website. They certainly went the extra mile.

Our website is very successful in attracting new enquiries and we cannot thank the team enough. ’

We now print Tekne’s brochures and continue to help them win new business. It just goes to show the value of taking the time to listen and understand the realities of each client’s situation. Does your agency go the extra mile for you?

If a job’s worth doing…

..it’s worth doing well. So thought the MD of fit out firm Tekne, one of the UK’s leading specialist joinery firms. Disappointed with the outcome of his recently redesigned website, and prepared to go back to the drawing board, he contacted Garda after admiring a website that we had produced for a similar business.

We proceeded to do what we do best by producing a key message audit that helped us get to the heart of what was important and special about Tekne and their work with some very high profile clients. Read More

Tangible ways to keep in touch

By | Marketing, Print

In a world obsessed with digital marketing and online campaigns we have been busy with print and branded promotional. Items such as pens, USB sticks, diaries, calendars and pads are making a bit of a comeback as businesses realise the importance of keeping in touch with their customers and managing existing customer relationships.

While digital marketing and email communications are important, something tangible will help you stand out. You’ll cut through the digital noise and bypass the clutter of an overflowing inbox. Read More

A picture is worth a thousand words and in the case of Brown & Carroll Living, the best way to showcase their craftsmanship to clients, was to create dedicated Project Profiles.

From aristocratic penthouses, to the 2012 Athlete’s Village, they have an impressive portfolio to draw from. Read More
