In relation to these projects their attention to detail and organisational skills have been an asset to the Council, its officers and members. They’ve continued to forge and strengthen good press relations, which has been acknowledged in the feedback received from a number of media organisations.

We came to Spirus because we needed to improve our Google search ranking. They came at the top of our Google search for local marketing companies. I figured if they could be ranked first themselves they must know what they were doing. So we asked them to work on our website’s SEO, improve the content and take on our social media accounts. We were spending a lot of money on Google Ad Words, but getting very few inquiries in return. Since working with Spirus we have stopped using Google Ad Words completely and instead improved our website and included much more relevant web content. We have also been more visible on social media. Now we are regularly getting new work enquiries coming in from our website, so we are very pleased with the results. Spirus are currently building us a new website to make it mobile friendly and easier to use. A recent email marketing campaign written and delivered by Spirus has had a brilliant response – we have booked several big projects as a result. The ROI was amazing. We have also worked with them on advert and leaflet design, which has been a success. We are very happy with the understanding Spirus have of our business and their ability to take a good brief. The blogs they write for us are always spot on, they get across exactly the message we wanted and we don’t have to waste time making changes. It’s also a relief to hand over the writing to a professional so we can concentrate on our business. Their content marketing has made all the difference to us. We would recommend Spirus to anyone who needs a professional, reliable, friendly and efficient marketing service that gets good results.

The team at Spirus have recently created an animation for our business which we will use on social media. After an initial discussion, Jo provided a very clear description of her proposal and we had a couple of stages until we reached the final result. Jo listened and was understanding of our aims, translating what we had imagined into a piece which we are delighted with. We cannot wait to release the animation on our social media platforms and were pleasantly surprised at how affordable it was for us as a small business, we hope this will be the start of a series.
We are very pleased to be working with Spirus on the next stage of our marketing strategy as we are at an exciting stage with our business and want to partner with an agency who will help us to maximise our opportunities. Spirus have a great team of creative and passionate marketing professionals and we believe that working together will take Ellgia to the next level in terms of reach and sales.

Professional, Efficient and Responsive (and Friendly!)
We worked with Spirus earlier this year on a research project analysing multigenerational living in the UK. We had been unsuccessful ourselves in finding a sample of households to interview and asked Spirus if they could help. The team quickly understood what we were looking for and worked their magic to supply us with a sample of people living in multigenerational households to interview. They were professional, efficient and responsive (and friendly!) and we would work with them again on similar projects.
