How can we help you grow your business?

We start by agreeing a '0ne page' marketing plan

This may include some simple desk market research

You may be struggling with writing compelling content for web, blog, social media or print

You may need to look at your customer database; a huge in-house under used sales asset

Your internal marketing team may need short term support

You may need to show others how marketing improves the bottom line

For marketing to be effective it must show a return on investment. You think you may have the best creative work in the world but if it does not bring in any sales it is a waste of cash and resources. The CEO, Chris Edwards, has been invloved in several start ups - some have failed. But here's the thing - you always learn from failures. He has owned an award winning free house.

Deve people are on a mission to show that traditional marketing thinking is still relevant. Creativity is at the heart of marketing organisations. Too much emphasis is placed on the latest technology. Technology develops sales channels, creativity develops value. Most web designers are great at 'techie stuff' but usually very poor at writing elegant flowing content that sells.
