Epic Agency Celebrates Success
2017 closes with a flourish as we welcome the fantastic Laura Murphy to our team as Head of Operations. Laura will be helping to support us following a period of rapid growth over the last eighteen months.
Laura (35), who joins from BetFred, will be helping us to deliver greater operational efficiencies and to manage and oversee workflow. Laura’s appointment has been hitting the headlines with press coverage in Prolific North, Manchester Evening News and Business Cloud.
As well as helping us to manage our workload more efficiently and profitably as we focus on growth Laura will ensure that we continue to deliver excellence.
She will manage the team and be responsible for developing a series of team-building events and training initiatives to ensure we continue to get the very best from the incredible people we employ.
The appointment of Laura comes as our Epic team has picked up yet more new contracts to deliver digital marketing campaigns for brands including Remington, Russell Hobbs and Hermes.
The agency has grown from a team of 2 to 10 in just 3 short years and we now work with a strong portfolio of high-profile, blue-chip clients as well as smaller e-commerce SME businesses.
Other e-commerce client we are proud to be working with include Kids Funtime Beds, Tuff Mutts, Adorable Tots and the Urban Botanist.
Kids Funtime Beds
As well as attracting some great new clients we are absolutely delighted to see one of our longest standing clients, Kids Funtime Beds doing so well.
Run by local joiner Tony Smith, the company has revealed exclusively to Greater Manchester Business Week that its sales have increased twenty-fold since we created its new website and implemented a low-cost digital campaign. The Wythenshawe-based bed maker is now reporting turnover of £2.3m to the end of the financial year and is projected to reach £2.7m next year.
We created a fully-optimised e-commerce website and embarked on a low-cost digital promotion campaign which helped Kids Funtime Beds rise to the top of the Google ranking and saw sales go through the roof.
The campaign, which has generated 212,000 Facebook followers and achieved 99% Trust Pilot rating, was so successful that Tony had to ask us to switch off the digital campaign so he could catch up on orders. Tony and his team are now delivering over 70 handmade beds every week.
We pride ourselves on establishing long-term, deeply embedded relationships with our clients, many of whom have been with us since day one. They remain just as important as our new wins and it’s brilliant to be able to celebrate their successes too.
