A little bit about our digital marketing agency
Posted: 1st August 2016
Priority Pixels has officially been up and running for a couple of months now, having been registered with Companies House on June 1st 2016. We (myself and fellow Director Nathan Yendle) decided to set up a digital marketing agency back in January, so to say the last few months has been busy is an understatement to say the least. Finally though, in the last week or so things have really started to come together and we can finally concentrate on client work.
Why did we start an agency?
There’s no denying it; there are already a shed load of web and digital marketing agencies out there, what makes us so special right? Even though it’s a tough market we have always felt we have more to offer than the average agency by knowing the true value of customer service. Over the years I’ve collaborated with other agencies and web developers on numerous projects and time and time again I’ve said to myself, I can do better than that. It’s not just about providing high quality work, it’s about connecting with your clients, emailing or phoning them back promptly, being courteous, offering them good advice rather than just a sales pitch. These points may seem obvious but it’s incredible the amount of businesses I’ve seen over the years that get these basic fundamentals wrong.
There are a lot of big ego’s in the web design industry that I’ve never really understood. It isn’t like we’re brain surgeons or anything. For us it isn’t just about the money, it’s about doing a good job and having a positive impact on someones business.
What have we been up to?
Since the start of the year I’ve lost count of the numerous conversations I’ve had with my business partner. Early mornings, lunch times, late nights, all whilst trying to maintain our full time jobs and family life. It’s been tough but we’ve knocked about a lot of really good ideas and managed to hone them down to the ones we felt most important. There’s a lot to do when setting up a business and a lot of questions that need answering. What should we call ourselves? What should our domain name be? What services should offer? What should we charge for those services? Not to mention, finding an accountant, sourcing decent invoicing software, registering the business with companies house etc etc.
The experience I’ve had with my freelance business Retro Edge has helped a lot. Many of the clients I’ve worked with over the last decade have stayed with me and have transferred to Priority Pixels without hesitation. My years working as a freelancer has taught me one valuable lesson, how to manage my time, a skill I hope will be invaluable moving forwards.
With the business side of things set up we turned out attention to our own website. We’ve been online just over a month now and we’re bedding in nicely and already seeing some results from our SEO work. We’re happy with how it’s shaping up and feel it’s a good overall reflection of our business.
So what’s next…
Now that we’re up and running we’re turning our attention to our clients. Myself and Nathan’s experience lies largely in the construction and housing sectors so that seems a good place to start. We’re already working with a property developer in London and hope to have their site launched within the next month.
