Gobes Creative Ltd... promoting my agency.


New Member
Hi all,

I'm just starting up a small creative design and web development agency based in the UK. Our website is now online at www.gobes.com. We specialise in design and dev for all kinds of stuff, from print and web to UI and apps etc.

I'm really just after some advice and tips as to good places to promote and advertise the agency. I've worked mainly as an in house designer for the last 12 years... so I've never really had to think about promotion or marketing as we had other departments dealing with that.

We are looking into standard stuff such as Google Adwords and design publication advertising (creative review etc). Anybody have any experience with this kind of advertising? Social media is obviously also a must... but I'm not sure how effective alone that avenue will really be.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Gobes, I was where you are now a few years back and one of the best things I did was to hit the streets with my business cards. Get out into your local business comunity and talk to business owners, design a card thats memorable and you will be amazed at how much work it can bring your way.
