Digital Marketing In Glasgow

Blacktide Marketing is an independent, award-winning, full-service marketing agency, fueled by creativity and grit. Established in 2018 by owners Alexandros Costa and Nicola Costa, the company grew into what is known as the UK’s top Advertisement company. 

Alexandros found a bottle of whisky in his garage which was sold at auction for £800. He used that to fund himself for the first month, which did bring the essentials, however, brought a lot of no replies. Even through rejection the company still powered on until given the chance to prove themselves, by few small businesses hiring them. In a few short months, the company grew into having an office at the world-famous George Square sector of Glasgow, providing services for some of the biggest companies in the world. The company went onto winning ‘Best Advertisement Agency’ and ‘UK Top Advertisement Company’ of 2019 and the following year achieving the ‘Best B2B Business in Western Europe’ and ‘Best B2B Business in the UK’ in 2020.

So far, the project has been so successful that other industry peers are approaching the company for advice. Grey Space Media stands out with their down-to-Earth demeanor and fact-based direction. They're always available for support, and they communicate consistently.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I run a dynamic young construction company which utilises technology when approaching job sites. We are family run and have been going for a little over a year now. I am Managing Director there.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Grey Space Media?

We reach out to Grey Space Media for a revamp of our digital strategy and social media presence in a sector which doesn't usually use it.

What were your goals for this project?

Increase awareness and drive leads through social media for construction projects that range in value and size.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We compiled a few companies together. After speaking with the Managing Partner Ali, it was a definite choice that we would choose them.

His approach was unlike the others. Very calm, very down to earth and everything he said and showed us was backed up without facts. We also found that he wanted to know more about us which was refreshing.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

We asked them to define a social and digital strategy going forward. We are in the progress of having them create a website for us after their recommendation. The social strategy was to include Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram Ads and how we can target audiences. We also had them define our brand guidelines.

What was the team composition?

We utilised all 5 members of the team with the Managing partner being the main point of contact. It was refreshing at how streamlined the workflow and communication was throughout our project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The success has been fantastic with other construction companies now comping to us for advice which I think shows the standard of the work Grey Space Media has produced.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Their workflow was fantastic. Communication was outstanding with Alexandros being available 24/7 for any questions we may have had. It is very rare to find a managing partner which will do that.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The workflow, communication, the friendliness and how well they connected with us. We felt they became part of our company with their style and communication. The work presented throughout was also unparalleled.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The company was fantastic and I would HIGHLY recommend.

Feedback summary: 

The campaign generated a higher-than-usual ROI. There were no issues with the vendor’s workflow. In particular, their efficient communication method was a highlight.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

My company is an interesting one. We help set up relations between smaller retailers and big companies like ASOS etc. We also help by working with agencies to develop campaigns for these brands.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Grey Space Media?

We hired Grey Space Media to collaborate on creating content for the new summer collections we have as well as generating Ad campaigns around this.

What were your goals for this project?

To achieve high end content. To achieve a low cpc when running ads. We also wanted to take brand from start to finish through photo and video work.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We actually know one of the photographers that they use. We have followed him for a while and he introduced us to the partners and from there it was an instant click.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

We ask them to select multiple locations for shoots across the UK. This also involved then arranging studios with models and influencers. From there they shoot, developed and edited the content. After the content was complete we asked them to generate a social media schedule for our brands and then Ad campaigns around it form their building the brand bigger and bigger.

What was the team composition?

We worked with every member of the teams including the partners of the agency. They are very much a hands-on leadership team with an open door policy which was absolutely fantastic. It's great to see how involved they are.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The project was a huge success, for some of our brands we usually only turnover £80,000 plus however after running this content + campaigns with Grey Space Media we hit a record £152,000 in turnover which had us lost for words.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The team was flawless, they introduced us to SLACK which we used to communicate which made the process smooth and efficient.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The communication was unlike anything I have seen. It was fantastics so efficient. Their quality of work was on a level I have never seen. They are perfectionists. The fact that every member of the company was involved made it feel so seamless

Are there any areas for improvement?

They are perfect, would highly recommend
