About

Hi There!


We're SO Marketing, a lively and creative team based in Leek, and we've got loads of big ideas when it comes to branding and design. Most importantly, however, we believe that service shouldn't be affected by budget; we work with loads of regional, national and international brands, all of whom get our very best customer service, and most creative design concepts.


Now for a little bit more 'About Us' - that is what the section's called, after all! SO Marketing was formed way back in 2007 by two plucky designers with an idea; they wanted to create an agency with the service and dedication of an in-house team - and that's just what they did. We've changed a little over the years, we've lost copious amounts of hair, and our jeans don't fit as well as they used to; but we've also evolved, levelled up and gained some valuable experience points. We now offer a wide range of graphic design, branding and digital services, but that essential commitment to service has never wavered.


But we don't just sit around all day in front of our humongous iMacs and drink quirky coffee; we deliver tailored solutions, concepts and designs driven by our clients' aims and identity. We help to shape our client's corporate identity through engaging branding and logo design, getting to know the people behind the product and placing their goals at the centre of their new image. The thing is, the brands we create aren't just like outfits cobbled together from the local charity shop; we build high quality logos and engaging visual assets that continue to define digital trends - we're the 'Levis Jeans' of branding, if you will. 


We then take these fancy new brands and plaster them all over a range of digital assets and print marketing materials, from shiny new websites through to the leaflets that people pester you with in the street. Our incredibly talented team can devise everything from banners and corporate artwork to branded stationery and interactive web platforms. We believe that the true test of great web design isn't the number of conversions listed, but instead the number of gasps and remarks of "Oh that's pretty cool, isn't it" that it generates. Alright, conversions are pretty important too. We'll go to great lengths to achieve the appropriate level of shock and awe, from using our purpose-built drone for HD aerial photography, to incorporating the latest interactive web features using HTML5.


The thing is, you can have the most on-trend branding, and an interactive website that makes users' eyes pop with excitement (we won't accept any responsibility in the case of literal eye-popping), but they won't generate a return unless the right consumers can find you. That's why we've expanded into a full service digital marketing agency; working with partners and industry specialists, we deliver a range of solutions to help drive exposure, increase website performance and ultimately develop more conversions. Need help getting found? We can help to secure better positions on search engines, or even develop your social media following. Want to turn those data lists into sales? We can build mobile-optimised email marketing campaigns to drive those all-important conversions.


SO that's us in a (rather hefty) nutshell; we care about creativity and customer service, a sentiment that we hope comes across in our portfolio of engaging, distinctive work, and one that has also been recognised by a whole load of awards and nominations -not that we're the type to brag, of course.


So what do you think - could this be a match made on a dating app? If so, visit our website for more information on the services we offer - we look forward to working together!

Testimonials

"I have only been dealing with So Marketing now for a few months but they have always go above and beyond. No matter how much you pester them over the silliest of things they are always accommodating, friendly and very professional. A great team."

The Admin Genie

"So Marketing are a five star agency. They are always on hand to provide support and guidance. Recently our website went down for five days (outside of anyone control) and So Marketing worked flat out for 5 days with 3 developers to resolve the issues as quickly as possible."

UJIA

"Wouldn't go anywhere else, the guys know what they are doing and worth every penny! I don't see them as a cost, but an investment as they have enabled me to win business 100 times over what I have spend on marketing with SO."
