What our clients say...
First Choice Homes Oldham
Sheena McDonnell, Business Transformation Director, First Choice Homes Oldham (FCHO), May 2013
We have been working with Owl Marketing for a year. They are our professional advisors on PR and communications. In particular they work with us to produce our communications to customers, compile and distribute press releases and respond to press enquiries. We are one of the larger businesses in Oldham with 12,000 properties and over 20,000 customers.
Owl have been instrumental in our journey into the world of social media and they have managed our presence there in a responsive and committed way. They do this with an excellent understanding of our brand persona, which they maintain in all their work for us. Our social media channels are well used and managed seamlessly thanks to the working relationship we have with Owl.
Liz and Deborah are extremely likeable, helpful and approachable and very well connected among local business which has definitely been of benefit to FCHO. Their approach is very refreshing and I would have no hesitation in recommending both them and their services to others.
Oldham Athletic Football Club
Jenny Warburton, Commercial Manager, Oldham Athletic Football Club
Through Oldham Athletic’s involvement in Twestival Oldham, Owl Marketing helped us to set up and manage our official Latics Twitter account. We had considered doing it before, but hosting Twestival in our Corner Flag suite gave us the perfect opportunity to do it and to benefit from being part of a global social media event.
We now use our account to talk directly to the fans, run competitions and give insights into what is going at the club as and when it happens. Owl Marketing has also helped us to use the power of social media by advising us on clever techniques to raise our profile in football league social media competitions.
Trish Travis, Owner/Director, Staff Recruitment
“We approached Owl Marketing to help us to progress our business, in what is for us a very competitive market. They asked (sometimes difficult) questions, did thorough research, and really got to know the business. They produced a marketing strategy and positioning document for Staff, which shaped a new communications plan to steer the direction of the business over the coming years.
They overhauled our direct mail and brochure copy to reflect our customer focused approach and to ensure all our communications speak to our customers in their language. They also introduced us to the virtues of PR and gaining positive media coverage for the business, which put us in front of our customers and prospects, and highlighted the values that make us stand apart from our competitors. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Owl Marketing to any business wanting to grow their business through marketing, communications or PR.”
Bondi Rescue Lifeguards
Reidy, Hoppo, Maxi and Troy, Bondi Rescue Lifeguards
“At quite short notice Owl Marketing came on board as our PR company, for our first ever UK trip. They very quickly and efficiently set up opportunities for us to meet our fans and raise our profile in the UK, whilst spreading the message of surf safety. Deb and Liz came up with innovative ideas to use our social media channels to engage with the fans and to promote the tour and we got some great on and offline coverage of the trip. Nothing was too much trouble for them and as well as really knowing their stuff they are amazeballs fun to work with! We look forward to 2012 and doing it all again with the Owl ladies.”
Nigel Turner, Managing Director, iPackPlus
“Our company iPack is currently based in France, and we needed a UK company to help us find out more about our potential customer base in the UK. Owl Marketing provided us with a straight-forward and comprehensive brief setting out exactly how they would conduct the market research. The work was carried out ethically and accurately, and to the relevant segments of our targeted audience. They fully understood our business and our goals and their thorough approach was reassuring as we moved our services overseas.
The final reports from the research were logical, easy to understand and gave us a valuable insight into the needs of our target market. At every stage of the project we were kept informed of where they were up to and what would happen next. Owl Marketing did everything they stated in their original proposal plus some, and I am happy to recommend their thorough marketing research skills and all-round marketing expertise.”.
Peter Dorotiak, Director, Aspect IT
“We knew we needed to be more proactive with our marketing at Aspect IT but we could never find the time. And we knew it was about time the company became more ‘social’. Before starting any other projects for us, Owl Marketing proofread and made suggestions to our website copy to make it clear and engaging for readers. Owl Marketing were instrumental in getting our blog started and helping us get the best from our social media sites.
We now understand social media is not just an opportunity to tell people our news, but to connect and create conversations with our customers. Owl Marketing know their stuff, and they are expert at getting businesses exposure, and I continue to use Owl Marketing’s services like my very own marketing department.”
Maureen Wray, Owner, Yoga Yourself
“Owl Marketing really know their social media and the personalised report they did for Yoga Yourself was hugely beneficial. The value for me was in them completely understanding my market and advising on what would be of interest to my followers. I know my yoga, but translating that into interesting tweets that would inform and engage was not easy for me. I now fully understand what I am using Twitter for, and I have set myself goals that I want to achieve from it so I can measure if I am being successful.”
NSG U.K. Limited
Howard Satchell, Compliance Manager, NSG U.K. Limited
“Owl Marketing write original copy for a regular internal health & safety bulletin for a large chemical plant which goes out to all staff and contractors. We provide the key topic and contact names, and then we are able to leave it to them to research the subject matter, interview the contacts and provide the copy for the bulletin. Deadlines are met every time and they are a pleasure to work with.”
