The Brighton Academy

Time frame: Past

The Brighton Academy (TBA) opened in 2011 and offered aspiring drama students Performing Arts and Musical Theatre courses in the heart of cosmopolitan Brighton. Since opening the academy, the founders (like most small businesses) had done all of their own promotional material and had built their own, comprehensive Wordpress website to showcase their business. In 2017 we took on The Brighton Academy's marketing activity taking a considerable weight off their shoulders and allowing us to create a creative marketing plan to grow their PR, social media marketing and PPC activity.

Camp Beaumont London Day Camps

Time frame: Present

Camp Beaumont is a well established holiday camp for children between the ages of 4-16 in the London area. They have been running for over 40 years. They started working with Creative Pod in November 2020 to create a new website, and we have since taken on their PPC marketing activity. Camp Beaumont's previous website was very confusing and difficult to navigate for parents trying to book their children into the camps. Consequently, they were having to spend unnecessary time and money taking a large volume of phone calls from parents who found it easier to call them and book. One of the reasons for the difficulty was that the website had been set up with very basic functions and content, and was repeatedly added to as more time went by, so the customer journey hadn't been properly considered. The website was also on a poor content management system which made it hard to update. The purpose, therefore, was to streamline the website and makes it more accessible for customers to explore and use the booking system.

Quality Care Group (QCG) is one of the UK's largest independent insurance brokers and suppliers of business services to the Care Sector. With over 30 years combined experience in care, they are built up of five businesses; QCG, Care Insurance, Business Solutions, General Insurance, and Risk Control. They also have a sister company, Pollards Promises, which is the charitable arm of QCG. They chose a nominated individual in the care industry to fulfil a 'bucket list', wish of theirs. They started working with Creative Pod in September 2019 for a rebrand of their different sectors, and alongside this our design team designed and built two brand new websites. We also became their fully outsourced marketing and design team, which includes monthly social media posting across their three platforms for both companies, as well as PR creation and outreach, paid advertising, campaign planning, and design work. QCG wanted to completely rebrand the company, they felt it was a good time to give the brand a refresh and bring their bespoke products and services under one umbrella of the Group. Furthermore, they were looking for clear guidelines and rules that current and future members of the business could follow regarding the tone of voice and presentation of the company to ensure a streamlined and cohesive image.

Brighton Christmas Festival

Time frame: Present

Brighton Christmas Festival was the first project of its kind in the area and had a speedy turnaround time, so we quickly came together and created eight ad campaigns in total for the festival across their different channels. Our objectives were to help increase brand awareness, drive footfall and generate ticket sales for the following individual events using pay per click digital marketing methods. There were also big gaps between weekday shows and weekend shows that we needed to help with.
