Growth Accelerator

Growth Accelerator

Looking to grow your business?

By being part of a unique government initiative called Growth Accelerator we can help you to address new routes to investment, and new ideas and strategy for your business to achieve your full growth potential.

Like most of the companies that we deal with currently, you have probably already built your business and are looking to move it to the next level – but you do not have the in-house experience to do that.

By helping you to address the barriers that are holding you back we can work alongside you and your senior team to identify the best route for you to enable you to achieve your next growth stage.

Our experience can assist you to develop the following:

  • Develop a successful and sustainable growth strategy
  • Unlock your innovation potential
  • Connect with the power of your people
  • Discover new routes to funding and investment and markets too

In addition there is an exclusive access to up to £2,000 match funding for your senior managers to develop their leadership and management skills – we like to call it developing your business from the inside out.

Public Relations

Everyone's public relations (PR) requirements are different and unique.

Whether you are launching a new product or service, organising an event, or looking to increase your brand awareness - with our experience, we can tailor the right activity to suit you.

Together we develop a public relations strategy, complete with target audience, aims and details of measurable outcomes.

And, all of our activity is approved by our clients before issue, so you are safe in the knowledge that your communications are in good hands.

What is PR?

PR is the art of creating and maintaining your company's high profile reputation.

We achieve this by generating positive media coverage, linking your company with an affinity partner and maintaining good relations between you and your public.

Who can benefit from PR?

Everyone can benefit from better communications - whether it be a one man band or a large international organisation, we can help you get your messages and brand in front of the right audiences.

Every client has different aims and we put together a full PR strategy to achieve these objectives, by developing a full media campaign, with detailed strategies, to convey your company's key messages.

The results will be clear, from new business enquiries to increased website traffic to heightened brand awareness.

How can we use PR?

There are countless ways that PR can be used to create and maintain your businesses' high profile reputation.

After developing news with strong angles, we work with the media to secure coverage in the trade, local, regional and national press.

And, should a media crisis ever come your way, then rest assured that our team are fully equipped to take the reins and deal with it.

Live

Heading up our live broadcast department is Llewela Bailey who has a wealth of experience in broadcasting, having worked in the industry for more than 25 years.

She's also one of the most familiar faces in regional television, having worked as a main anchor woman for ITV Central in the West and East Midlands for two decades.

Today she can often be found in our state of the art green screen studio in Coventry where she manages our Studio Services, and Media Training courses.

Our media and presentational courses ensure that you have the 'best dress rehearsal you can ever have' - click here for more information

Whether you are looking to hire our state of the art ‘green screen’ studio with 3D effects for your video content – or have it produced for you by our in-house team, we can help.

Our BBC endorsed cameras, Newtek Tricasters and Adobe Premier editing software and professional lighting ensures perfect results for all of your project requirements, every time.

Based in the Midlands and able to perform live Internet broadcasts from our studio, we are the perfect choice of studio for your individual requirements.

Corporate Services

Let us bring your business to life with a stunning informative video for your website, a product demonstration, or an engaging video newsletter to get your message across - it's so much more effective and personable than a flat email communication.

We also run team building event days, where you can experience the unique buzz of creating your own news broadcast, from filming, presenting and live editing – it is sure to get your communication skills running into overdrive!

Video Newsletters

Sharing information with your employees is a critical means of engaging staff and securing maximum productivity.

Video is fast becoming a medium for communicating with prospects and customers too because of its ability to both engage and inform.

Video newsletters are a contemporary way to communicate to your employees and those around the business community. Not only is this a “green” way to pass your message along, but it is visually engaging which keeps your audience’s attention.

The other major benefit of a video newsletter, unlike traditional newsletters, is that updates and alterations are easily completed due to the digital format it has been produced in, with up-to the-minute changes being a breeze.

Your newsletter can be distributed in a large variety of ways, including email to an electronic mobile device message, and can strengthen company communication and retention whilst being effective and environmentally friendly.

360 degree crystal clear video production

We have brought together all of the latest video technology to now offer full 360 degree video shoots.

Our production team will also include within the video 'multiple' viewpoints and areas of importance, including a click through to other video's, all within the 360!

The panoramic results with background music (and a voiceover by Llewela Bailey if you wish!) are crystal clear and have a real elegance about them - unlike the 'start-stop' results that we have all experienced in the past.

Ideal for all service based companies including, restaurants, hotels, museums and sports and event facilities, the 360 can now combine a crystal clear preview for potential clients to view your facilities 24 hours a day.

Contact us today to see how we can bring together your 'brick and mortar' locations with your digital and social media channels - our 360's combine video and photography to create a unique experience that others simply cannot match.

Digital

Having a web site is important, but increasing traffic and attracting visitors to your site should be priority. Our Internet marketing and search engine optimisation services are designed to drive targeted traffic to your web site.

At a recent exhibition we conducted a 'Web Effectiveness Survey' across a whole range of visitors. The objective was to find out how well people thought their website was performing - and it threw up some amazing results.

The ten questions covered a range of repeated mistakes found during our usability tests and highlighted the key elements required to make the most out of a site. Participants in the survey ranged from public sector organisations to large e-commerce online vendors, and all see their website as crucial to their business.

We would be delighted to discuss with you how we can secure more activity from your website for you - just complete our contact form and we will be in touch.

Key findings include:

45%

...of businesses have no way of monitoring or measuring how their website is being used

40%

...of respondents felt that their website visitors do not look at the areas of their website they would want them to

77%

...believe their site isn’t as easy to use as it should be

81%

Not Monologue

George Bernard Shaw once said that "the problem with communication is the illusion that it has been accomplished."

We believe in providing you with honest feedback on where you are at present - and, what you need to do now to get to where you want to be.

In order for you to understand how to communicate more effectively, both as a company and through the eyes of your senior management team, we will address the following:

  • We will help you to understand how to identify the purpose of a conversation with the relevant audience.
  • We will also help you to deliver an effective and relevant message.
  • We will show you how to test how you were heard and whether you were understood.
  • And finally, we will teach you how to listen with intention and conviction.
