Anecdote is a creative marketing provider who exists to create customer demand for your business.
We work with marketing consultants, marketing departments and growing businesses across the South East, helping them to achieve their goals and objectives.
We work on the premise that great marketing is ‘Creativity + The numbers’.
We create and deliver interesting and intelligent marketing solutions which generate engagement, leads and sales for our customers.
This is at the heart of our philosophy. We unify and maximise the power of businesses brands, plugging them into customer focussed website design and development which creates a platform to deliver effective digital campaigns which generate traffic and leads.
We can help with defining a content marketing plan and deliver strategic email marketing campaigns but we don’t offer paid social, Google ads/PPC or any social media services. We can’t provide the standard’s required so we don’t offer it as a service.
We will always be honest, down the line and extremely hard working. Not forgetting fun to work with!
We specialise in what we’re good at. Where a lot of agencies go wrong is by offering every service under the sun. The results are mediocre.
Now, I’m sure you want more than mediocre. Our pedigree is rooted in branding, before setting up Anecdote, we worked nationally branding National Parks, Counties and Historic destinations in London.
We have taken this experience and upskilled to plug that into modern, customer focussed website experiences.
Again, a lot of web design agencies are great at coding and the technical side of a website but fall down when trying to provide branding as part of their offer as they don’t have the experience.
This is where we make big gains for you and your business. We can deliver proper branding and proper customer focussed website experiences.
Here’s what we offer:-
Trusted branding and creative marketing
A strong truthful brand which is calibrated to maximise the key business objectives. A brand everybody within that business understands and believes in. One which key audiences are drawn back to again and again.
Trusted website design and development
A website which amplifies and celebrates the brand, focusing wholeheartedly on delivering on the key objectives of the business through a user experience built around the customer.
When you maximise the potential of these key creative attributes, businesses thrive and grow for the long term. This is the reason we set up Anecdote. To bring these services together to create demand for business, no matter which sector they find themselves in. Our focus is to help our customers retain and gain new customers.
Our pricing structure flexes to the services you require. Our typical price range for the services we offer range from £1500 up to £7500.
We pride ourselves on complete honesty and transparency and being flexible as possible with any project we undertake. The key for us is that the output drives customer demand and creates leads and new business for you.
Below provides two ways we can work but we are adaptable to your requirements:-
Project by project
Depending on your requirements we can work on a project by project bases. Once we understand the brief we will determine the hours required to complete the work and create a budget cost for the project.
A monthly retainer
If you require ongoing support we can work with you on allocating a set number of hours month to month for which you can use at your discretion. At the end of each week you would be provided with a break down of where the hours were spent. You can adjust the hours depending on requirements or roll them over to the following month.
Anecdote provides a full list of agency services without the big agency fees:
We are a small, lean and productive team. We don’t have the overheads of a well-established agency, meaning we can deliver real value for our clients at pace.
Our working hours are 9 – 5.30pm Monday to Friday. We are a phone call or email away. We work in a way which best suits our clients, whether that’s phone, email or WhatsApp.
Agile creativity and artworking
