Business Marketing and Promotion Award 2009

We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded the Best Business Marketing and Promotion Award in the 2009 Worthing Business Awards. We have so many people to thank: Firstly, we thank everyone that nominated us in this category, we are really chuffed. Secondly, Arundel Trophy and Engraving Centre who kindly sponsored this award. We thank all the organisers of this year’s business awards – they were spectacular and Fred Dinenage was very funny when presenting our award. Finally, thank you to all my friends and family for supporting me during these testing times.

Our Marketing Philosophy

This has been a tough year for many businesses and this prestigious award has really strengthened our belief in the old but excellent philosophy of Givers Gain. Our tried-and-tested formula to marketing is HONESTY and HELPING OTHERS. We help businesses and we put ourselves in their shoes. We believe that using honesty when helping our clients with their marketing and promotions automatically raises our profile. This is perfect marketing! Clients we have helped have passed our name to businesses that want to grow and need marketing help.

We have advised all of our clients that good marketing and promotions is key to standing out, especially when the economy is tough. Customers are going to buy from businesses that look professional, well-known and trusted. All of our customers that have taken our marketing advice are thriving through the recession. We advise them to invest what they can afford, and ask the question: Can they afford not to invest? We are honest and independent, and if we think a client should invest either in radio advertising or telephone canvassing or a
PR stunt, then that is what we recommend.

Charity Events and Organic PR

The Brand Surgery have always re-invested their profits back into self-marketing and promotions – albeit in the form of corporate sponsorship (we design graphics pro bono for the End of the Pier Film Festival), or by the boss throwing herself off Worthing Pier in Worthing International Birdman (for charity and in turn good PR).

We have also created stunning exhibition graphic design which has won us ‘Best Stand’ at business exhibitions, this in turn has secured us some large business deals. Perfect marketing!

We believe that we need to lead by example. Everything we advise our clients to do, we do for ourselves. In fact we test all of our advice out on The Brand Surgery before we let loose on our clients – from customer care to the envelopes we post our marketing packs in – marketing and promoting oneself – give as you would like to receive is our motto for marketing success.
