About

Fellowship

noun: fellowship

a group of people with a shared purpose.

Our purpose is to help you grow your business.

Marketing Agency in Suffolk

Based by the A14 just east of Bury St. Edmunds and only 40 minutes from Cambridge, our expert team specialise in branding, web design & development, bespoke integrations, app development, graphic design and digital marketing.

Over the last 20 years we’ve helped a wide mix of clients with their business challenges. These range from SMEs in East Anglia to national and international businesses as far as the USA. Most of whom have become long-term partners.

Our combination of technical expertise, creative flair and strategic thinking means we can handle pretty much any marketing problem you present us with – from SEO strategy to a complete brand refresh.

Focused on fundamentals

We focus on the fundamentals that make the biggest difference – your brand and your website. Unless you get these right your marketing won’t deliver the results you want.

At the heart of both your brand and your website, you need striking imagery, a strong story and a distinctive style.

Your proposition needs to be relevant, meaningful and memorable, to stand out from the competition. We align your team behind communications that are consistent and persuasive, ensuring your marketing budget is an investment, not an expense.

Brilliant Brands

The strength of your brand is a strong indicator of your future cash flow. Is your business known, liked and admired by your ideal future customers? If not, you’ve got a problem.

Credentials To Get the Job Done

With 20 years’ experience and a team of 18 expert designers and developers, marketers and strategists, writers and project managers, we can handle pretty much any challenge.

Strategic Thinking

We kick off every project by ensuring we thoroughly understand your current situation. We look at your company, customers and competitors, and your ambitions for the future. Having diagnosed the market challenges and opportunities, we can then work out the best way to position and present your business to achieve your objectives. Our thinking is guided by sound marketing principles and what works most effectively to attract your target prospects. It’s based on evidence, not transient trends and tactics.

Creative Flair

To make a strong impression, you need to stand out from your competitors, rather than drown in a sea of sameness. Our finely honed design and writing skills ensure your brand, website and marketing materials are stylish, impactful and appropriate to your audience and sector – while avoiding the trap of looking and sounding like every other business in it. We develop a distinctive look, feel and tone for your communications so you get noticed and remembered, not lost in the crowd.

Deep Technical Expertise

With an in-house team of eight developers and two web designers, we have a deep understanding of how to design, develop and support WordPress websites for maximum impact. We’re also experts in building and maintaining WooCommerce E-commerce sites and handling complex back office integrations with third party accounting, CRM and ERP systems. Our bespoke solutions include developing apps that make your products and services easily accessible to your customers.

Our Values

We can only succeed by helping you realise your ambitions for your business. Which means we believe in delivering an outstanding service with high quality work that gets the results you want. Sustaining such results means building a long term, mutually beneficial relationship that’s underpinned by strong strategy, intelligent marketing and a healthy respect for each other’s ideas and expertise. We don’t believe in endless bureaucracy, baffling you with jargon, or palming you off with juniors learning on the job.

Building Long Term Partnerships

Our clients usually become long term partners. They range from local companies to international businesses. They tell us we’ve transformed the quality and impact of their marketing, leading to sustained growth and success.

They also say we’re lovely people to work with. Feel free to ask them yourself.
