Harlow Stories - Issue 1

Top Tips 1) Networking is the most economical way for me to regularly meet new prospective customers and grow brand awareness in the business community. 2) It gives me the opportunity to meet reliable and trustworthy suppliers that will help my company to grow. 3) It attracts positive people with a positive business mindset and gives you the opportunity to discuss best practice in the workplace.

One of our strongest skills is our ability to Project Manage for clients. We look after everything an in-house marketing department would and to do this it is incredibly important to have a trusted team to take on specialist tasks. We are often asked, for example, to create a new website on behalf of a client. Now we may be copywriters but we are NOT designers, nor web-developers, or SEO experts, but we know people who ARE. Years of working in the industry and networking globally has provided us with an unrivalled black book which means we can pull together the most skilled and suited team to each and every project we work on. To begin with it would be fair to say that 90% of our clients came directly or indirectly from networking and the relationships we have developed over the years. Steve Chew – Magnificent Stuff
