It will correct any errors in past marketing and deliver creative campaigns that engage and build demand for clients’ products and extend the product lifecycle through innovation and imagination. To fail to plan is to plan to fail and a definition of madness is to continue to repeat the same processes and to expect different results. With Digital Blanket, expect the unexpected!
Sometimes, hearing the truth from an external agent is an easier pill to swallow. Digital Blanket offers advice and reports that substantiate areas where a business feels they need more light throwing on. Thorough research, interview, visual inspection and experience form some of the principles adopted in determining viability and operational efficiency.
One huge positive Digital Blanket has is the experience of its people in the business and creative industries. Placing a customer and supplier together with shared objectives, and a perfect match, is highly rewarding. Digital Blanket knows many people and if you need a guy to pack and distribute a print campaign to 13,000 students next week, we can help. Suppliers talk to Digital Blanket in the hope that we will be able to make introductions. These relationships can make new and established ventures grow and thrive.
Print / design / airtime advertising / banner advertising
With in-house creatives and through companies trusted to outsource to (such as The Ultimate Marketing Group), Digital Blanket can print on all materials, in all quantities at a good price with SLAs in place to guarantee service delivery is second to none.
Digital Blanket can buy media space in print publications and from air-time in radio and TV broadcasting, as well as on-line in digital platforms. The usual margin Digital Blanket charges equates to the discount it buys at. The customer therefore often buys through Digital Blanket at the price they could buy directly, but gets the brokerage opportunities Digital Blanket offers. These often mean synergy deals with other non-competitive brands; introductions, higher production quality levels, perceived free consultancy, labour or production (via the discount purchase price) and faster routes to market. Digital Blanket also offers advertising within its web articles, in its web banners and peripheries and in its TV / video work for Free To See, Social-Life and more. Affiliate digital advertising on 3rd party platforms is also a delivered service in this package.
Words can make the difference between a yes and a no. From entertainment and sports journalism to B2B articles, Digital Blanket writes on its social and web platforms constantly. Copy writing is also a service offered to clients for tidying up websites, social media posts, reports, key documents and for print. It’s an asset to all companies to have at least one person who can spell check and grammar check documents, web pages, etc. Digital Blanket has more than one excellent copy writer, meaning that the service is continuously available and to consistent editorial standards.
Social media account management
Looking after a social media channel for a client is more complicated than posting stuff on a wall. Negotiations and interactions have to be taken into account. On-going marketing the company is doing, suggestions coming in from fans, questions asked via Messenger Apps, etc. There’s detail on tabs, company facts, designs and artwork, engagement with audience, sharing onto personal walls, liking and commenting on other accounts as the client to bring traffic back. It’s a never-ending list of content, interest and etiquette. You like my page, I like yours. There are protocols which spell out the differences between an easy journey forwards and upwards, and a bumpy ride. Digital Blanket does social media well.
