We have just published the second edition of the BCM Journal - a client property magazine which will be printed and distributed on the Isle of Wight and will be online.
We compiled and edited it, sold the adverts, did the graphic design and organised print and delivery.
BRANDING & ID
Do you need to refresh your corporate identity, perform a complete makeover or create a 'brand' new look to launch your venture?
Our most recent rebrand was for www.cornhillfx.com who had a dated look and a rather generic website. We created a fresh identity including a clean new logo, brand guidelines, website, social pages, cards, letterhead and presentation templates.
A lot of people could build their own website.
If you have the time and a good eye, then you could use a template solution like Wix, Squarespace or if you have more skill, Wordpress.
But only you know your time pressures, priorities and skill sets. Remember that it's your window on the world and it's so important that it looks good. Sometimes it's better to get someone else to do it. It's likely to be better and much faster.
We can design and build your website very quickly in Wix (like this one). If your website needs to be more secure, robust and fast-loading we can discuss a bespoke site with no templates, just pure clean code.
Prices vary, depending on the solution.
Using social media isn't the magic wand that people assume.
It's an effective way to communicate and build a community but your posts need to be engaging and regular, ideally interactive.
We can create appropriate content for your audience to gain traction on Facebook and Instagram. Encouraging feedback on review sites is important too.
Our stats don't lie.
MARKETING & PR
Its easy to increase sales by throwing money at marketing but if it doesn't increase your profitability it's pointless (unless you want to buy market share).
You can make a delicious meal using expensive ingredients like truffles and cream but the secret is to make a tasty dish using the cheap cuts.
Return on investment (ROI) should be the focus.
Chase the low hanging fruit first such as existing customers, PR and social channels. We live in a digital age but marketing should be a mix - old fashioned direct mail works as do well-designed Mailchimp emails. The content and subject line are so important.
We have a target driven sales background; it's not all about looking cool just to make the directors feel good.

DESIGN & PRINT
We design a variety of different publications for clients.
Event guides such as The Osborne Horse Trials, Coast & Country, an estate agent's in house magazine, Cowes Magazine, a local yachting glossy as well as brochures, leaflets and business cards.
We can source and deliver quality print using our relationships with various suppliers as well as banners, signs and exhibition graphics.
Good content is imperative. We can research and write magazine articles, press releases, web content, blogs and social posts.
Our best compliment was from an advertiser in Cowes Magazine who said "I normally just flick through magazines but I read every article and they were all really interesting!:"
