Back in The Hive we’ll get busy with your project. We are always on hand for any questions and don’t take offence if you don’t like what we do the first time.

What our clients say

Those lovely clients we mentioned earlier. Here’s what they have to say about working with us.

Richard Ellis
Managing Director
We recently had the opportunity to work with The Marketing Hive whilst rebranding our business.  This involved not only coming up with a new logo, colour scheme and brand positioning but also a total overall and revamp of our website all of which was expertly managed by Rachel who fully understood the brief and delivered an excellent selection of option for us to chose from.  We were thrilled with the results produced by The Marketing Hive as the new branding looks outstanding and the website is absolutely fantastic. So happy were we with the work done by Rachel and her team that we subsequently commissioned them to produced some new marketing material for us to support our promotional activities and this too is of the highest standard.  We have seen our lead generation soar and the traffic to our website significantly increase as a direct result of all of the work done in conjunction with the Marketing Hive.

Discover Freedom

Before I met Rachel, from the Marketing Hive I would get very frustrated when trying to create leaflets ect for our business.

I was a bit concerned, as I was under the impression that having a company to help me would cost a fortune, and we would lose our family business identity.

After taking the plunge, I have found that Rachel seems to tune in to what we need, and doesn’t mind how many times we change our minds, and is incredibly patient showing me how to do techy things time and time again.

Now my leaflets and marking material are getting the enquiries and business we wanted.

I would use Rachel again and again and recommend her with no hesitation

Thank you Rachel

Rachel has been such a brilliant help with my social media planning.  She’s given me inspiring suggestions and I now know how to word my content to maximum effect.  I also had some fantastic training on Mail chimp with her and in just an hour I was able to create a festive campaign which got great recognition.   Thanks Rachel

I must say I’m blown away by this one. I love love love it. Well done with the colours and the layout. It’s not overwhelming chunks of text and very professional of course.

Thank you so much for your amazing help during the ‘power hours’ we had yesterday.  It was such a fun and productive session, I’m really glad I just got on and did it.

What I learnt was so valuable and having the ‘hand holding’ while we whizzed around the web site was just what I needed.  I now have the knowledge to make amendments myself which will save me money going forward.
When you come back next time, I will have a new challenge for you to help me with!
Huge thanks, Emma x

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for your ongoing marketing support for our networking group.  Ever cheerful, patient and professional you have given us lots of new ideas viewed from a different perspective which have proved invaluable in how we grow the groups. Your enthusiasm and encouragement have given us the confidence to try new marketing opportunities and to get an honest response when we bounce thoughts off you.  Thank you Rachel 😊

Rachel and The Marketing Hive are quite simply, fantastic!! When I met Rachel we had a “home made” website. Quickly and efficiently Rachel created a new website for us and one that we could be both pleased with and proud of. We regularly hold events (both in person and now virtual) and Rachel constantly comes up trumps with her marketing ideas and designs. Rachel’s enthusiastic and creative energy always leaves us pleased and coupled with a delightful personality, we would not hesitate in recommending The Marketing Hive.
