Web Design & Development

We a’re absolutely delighted with the website created by Marketing Matters. Our business is very much about how we are perceived by businesses looking to hire us. Marketing Matters came up with the design concepts which were inspirational, creative and inkeeping with our existing brand. It meant we could leave them to get on with the job without continually checking to see if the site development was ‘on track’.

They did an immense job and one what we are so proud of. Everything from the design, content and initial optimisation were carried out meticulously. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Marketing Matters.

I have personally utilised the services of Marketing Matters twice over the last year, to assist in various marketing challenges facing my business. I found the company to be extremely helpful and professional at all times and also very patient as I collated the necessary information for them. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Marketing Matters .

Publication Design

Janice & Jacquie at Marketing Matters provided an excellent service and a fresh, eye-catching design for our publication. They spent valuable time asking helpful and pertinent questions at the start of the project. Crucially, they listened to us, making sure that they understood our desired outcomes. This preparation became the groundwork for a happy and productive collaboration.

Design work

We have worked with Jacquie Dryden of Marketing Matters for a number of years now and have always found her to be extremely helpful, creative and professional. We are also impressed with her ability to turn design work around at very short notice which is extremely important given the timescales we work to. We would highly recommend Marketing Matters for creative cost effective design work.

Marketing Consultancy

Marketing Matters were brought on board initially, to upgrade our brand and ultimately, improve our corporate identity. However, we soon realised the value of having ongoing marketing consultancy in what is, a very competitive marketplace.

Trichem Scotland and Marketing Matters have been working together for nearly two years and in that time, we have introduced an ongoing marketing communications programme which includes direct mail, e-marketing, Customer Relationship Marketing (CRM) and business referral partner initiatives. Marketing Matters works very closely with Trichem Scotland and has proved to be a valuable addition to the team.

Road Expo, Royal Highland Centre, Edinburgh

Road Expo Scotland 2009 took place on the 4 – 5 November in the Royal Highland Centre, Edinburgh. With around 110 exhibitors and a 10% increase in the number of visitors it was the largest exhibition in the shows history.

Contraflow were given the award for the best visitor promotion. This was awarded for going above and beyond the call of duty in promoting the event to their customers and potential visitors. All of the marketing opportunities offered by the organisers, Faversham House, were taken up by Contraflow and used to great effect. These included a direct mailing service, personalised e-tickets, additional hard copy tickets and an enhanced website listing. On top of this, all correspondence with Contraflow and their marketing agency, Marketing Matters, was actioned promptly and deadlines were always met.

It is of great importance to the continued success of the exhibition that exhibitors engage with the show organisers and marketing options offered to them. Contraflow and Marketing Matters have certainly done this, ensuring a good event for all involved.
