From designing flyers to implementing a business’s entire marketing strategy, our Shropshire marketers can help. We provide high quality solutions combined with a responsive customer service.
Are we a London or Manchester marketing agency? No. Are we a one-man band? No. People say there’s no money in the middle but they’re wrong! We don’t have the huge overheads of a big agency but nor do we have the limited in-house resources of a sole marketing consultant. By running a lean ship and having the right processes in place to maximize efficiency, Key 3 Media is able to give our clients the best of both worlds. That agency with the super cool massive office, pool table and beer fridge… guess who’s paying for that? Yup, you!
We’re a friendly, informal bunch too. Professional but approachable. You won’t get any techno-babble from us. We’ll listen to your goals and provide clear and effective options for you to choose from.
So if you’re looking for experienced marketers who will jump through hoops to grow your business, say hello to our team:
Andy began his media journey in 1996 in Carlton TV, helping conduct marketing research for both the broadcast and sales teams. He then moved to Pearl & Dean Cinema Advertising as Research Manager. Andy’s experience diversified to online marketing when he moved back to Shropshire, his home county, and launched the award-winning local business marketing company, thebestof Shrewsbury.
After 20+ years in marketing and advertising, Andy knows how important it is to focus on results. No fluff or theory, but techniques and tools that increase brand awareness and, ultimately, the number of business enquiries. Whether that is overseeing a website build or Facebook Ad campaign, Andy has to balance eye-catching design with strong content to best generate a Return On Investment.
Andy consults mainly for Shropshire-based companies, but works across the UK for a range of different-sized clients, from one-man bands to organisations such as the NHS.
Factoid: Andy once met his hero, Sir Richard Attenborough, and was so stunned all he could say was, “I loved you in The Great Escape.”
Emma has worked in sales and marketing for over 20 years. Her London experience included big-name media companies such as the National Magazine Company and Primesight Outdoor and now she runs thebestof Shrewsbury as well as Twitter accounts for Key 3 Media clients.
Emma researches and posts engaging, informative Twitter content on our clients’ behalf, plus keeps a close eye on the latest Twitter studies in order to maximize this evolving platform. Despite having a tough time in the social media marketplace, Twitter can still play an important role in raising a business’s profile. That said, Emma is now taking on an equal number of accounts for Instagram and LinkedIn.
She is also in charge of Customer Service. When a client has a question, it gets answered. When a client needs something doing, it gets done. One of Emma’s chief priorities is ensuring that clients are fully supported, and it is this genuine aftercare that creates many of Key 3 Media’s recommendations.
Factoid: Emma’s father founded Truprint.
Louise is a natural ad writer and spends a lot of her time showcasing news and events for clients of our sister business, thebestof Shrewsbury. Born and brought up in Shropshire, Louise knows the area well, so is ideally placed for our local promotional work.
She specialises in Google AdWords and blogging. Working across both B2C and B2B, if your website needs to be more prominent on Google, Louise is the person to speak to. Google AdWords isn’t about choosing a few keywords anymore. It requires in-depth research, the uploading of negative keywords, daily monitoring and more. Only then can we keep the cost per click as low as possible for our clients. Louise is Google AdWords certified.
When it comes to blogging, Louise can research and write on any subject. She has a First Class Honours degree in English Literature & Creative Writing! For some clients, Louise provides the copy via email… but others prefer us to have their website login details and she can upload the article directly as well as take care of the SEO.
Factoid: Louise looks amazing in any hat. Bring a hat to the office and test her!
Heidi is a keen charity fundraiser who completed the Virgin London Marathon 2017, raising thousands of pounds in the process and living to tell the tale.
Originally from Australia, Heidi has made Shropshire her home and has gained a strong grasp of the English language, despite Aussie being her first language (her own words…!). Heidi’s strong entrepreneurial skills led to setting up her own successful business from scratch, which gave her a clear understanding of the importance social media plays in the modern business world.
As our resident Instagram guru, Heidi is getting busier as more and more businesses want to start maximizing the platform. Heidi may even have to cut back on her Twitter and Facebook work! She is also able to blog like a boss!
Factoid: Heidi once had lunch with Prince Harry in Edinburgh.
Kimberley is a Creative Writing postgraduate who originally wanted to become a librarian but found a passion for creative media.
At Key 3 Media, Kim works across a variety of areas allowing her to fully utilise her creative writing and research skills… from blog content to organising meetings and maintaining client relationships. An advocate of great customer service, Kim’s motto is – you can never be too helpful and clients should always find an approachable, friendly supplier. Key 3 Media often wins business because the client was simply let down by their previous marketer.
Kim is still an avid reader and likes to browse #bookstagram, which she says is highly productive, as it further hones her proofreading and social media skills.
Factoid – Kim once lived in a library.
Catherine is a fully trained and experienced journalist. From blogs and leaflets to website content, Catherine’s hugely important role is to write and share clients’ news, views and advice. This, in turn, helps position them as experts in their field – forward-thinking business owners who care about their service and their customers.
A significant advantage of using Key 3 Media’s web design service is that we include the content in our cost. Most agencies rely on the client to do that, when often they are busy people and perhaps not even good copywriters. This is where Catherine comes in; she knows what questions to ask and how to translate clients’ answers into great sales & marketing material… all achieved through a single meeting or phonecall.
The less we can ask of a client, the better. Catherine is an expert in getting what we need, quickly!
Laura focuses on the research and production of social media content, predominantly Facebook and Instagram. Through researching the most effective types of content for each client and combining it with Facebook Advertising, Laura helps clients drive towards their no.1 goal – generating more enquiries.
Facebook Advertising is a crucial part of Facebook success for any business. We cannot accept any client for Facebook management unless they are happy to include a Facebook Ad budget (which may be as little as £2 per day). But given the volume and depth of user data, the platform can be hugely cost effective and we have launched businesses on the back of Facebook Advertising alone. Laura is able to target almost audience type you want.
Instagram is the area where she has seen most growth and now that you can tie it in with Facebook Advertising, Key 3 Media has another opportunity to maximise our clients’ Return On Investment.
