Arran Eleanor Creative Ltd, a creative marketing company based in Garstang, launched earlier this year with an ethos reflecting managing director Arran Rigney’s sentiment that “great marketing should be available to everyone.” The company works with small businesses and start-ups, aiding with website design, social media marketing, and events management, with a focus on keeping costs to a minimum.
“Why should marketing just be for the big dogs?” asks Arran. “Many agencies are focusing their efforts on signing the biggest clients they can find, but that’s not what we’re about.” she says. Arran passionately believes in marketing as a tool for growing businesses from the ground up, which is why her company focuses on finding creative solutions for small budgets. Director Adam Young agrees with this sentiment, “small businesses are often overlooked by marketing agencies, we’re looking to change that.” he said.
The company currently works with The Fleece Inn at Dolphinholme and, after successfully managing their social media accounts during a period of redevelopment, were handed a web development contract with them. The new website is due for release early in May. They also work with Down By The Riverside festival, boosting their ticket sales through highly-targeted social media campaigns. “This is what it’s all about”, says Arran, “enabling growth in businesses that can make a real difference in their community”.
Looking forward, the company aims to build on their recent success by connecting with businesses in the local area looking to boost their growth through digital marketing. By focusing their attention on smaller businesses and looking to support companies within their local community, Arran Eleanor Creative Ltd hope to be at the forefront of a prosperous future for small businesses in Lancashire.
