Agent Marketing

Established in 2006, Agent Marketing is an award-winning full service marketing agency. We deliver all elements of the marketing mix in house (strategy, creative, digital and communications) meaning our clients can rest in the knowledge that they can come to us for all aspects of marketing support. And they do, time and time again.

Year on year we’ve grown our turnover, won key industry awards and in 2016, have developed a number of new market-leading digital services. We’ve recently recruited talented new staff whilst rewarding our existing team with promotions and further incentives to succeed. Our client portfolio and reach has extended (we work across the public, private and third sectors, respectively), as has the economic and social impact we’re creating as part of every project we passionately undertake.

Client delight underpins everything we do at Agent; going the extra mile always comes as standard. As a result, our clients do the talking for us, with over 60% of our work coming from repeat business and referrals.
