Our Top Five Moments of 2020

To welcome in the New Year, we wanted to take a look back at our top moments of 2020 to celebrate everything that the team here at The Marketing People has achieved.

We tend to spend so much time celebrating our client’s achievements that we sometimes forget to pause and appreciate how far we have come as a team. So, on that note, please join us as we look back at our favourite moments from 2020.

1. We Started Live Streaming

We went Live for the first time in early November over on our YouTube Channel. After releasing weekly content for around a year we knew that the natural progression was to begin live streaming. So far, we have hosted our Digital Marketing Tuesday series on YouTube Live, and enjoyed bringing guests to the channel too. We look forward to inviting more guests to our YouTube Live in the coming months.

If you missed out on our live streams, then you can easily catch up on our channel! If you want to be alerted of any future live streams simply subscribe and click the notification bell. Click here to visit our YouTube channel.

2. Shortlisted for Small Business of the Year Award

In December, we were delighted to find out that we had been shortlisted for the Cannock Chase Chambers of Commerce Annual Small Business Awards.

We are proud members of the Chamber and this shortlisting is a testament to our team’s dedication, professionalism, and hard work. Typically, entering for awards is not something we do. Seeing our clients grow and achieve their goals is already something worth celebrating. Our personal thanks go out to all the businesses we have and continue to work with, as we would not be in this position without you.

We feel honoured to be shortlisted against many well-deserving companies and the virtual ceremony at the end of January will be something for our team to celebrate and look forward to.

3. Our Team Grew Bigger

In 2020, we also welcomed a new member to the TMP team. Danni Jupp graduated with a first-class honour’s degree from The University of Derby after studying Marketing and Consumer Psychology for four years.

Danni has quickly settled into her role as a Marketing Assistant and has already provided such valuable insights from her previous experience in the B2B and B2C sectors. We look forward to her growth and progression with The Marketing People during the course of 2021.

4. We launched our new website

The year 2020 provided us with the opportunity to focus on our own marketing, which is something we probably don’t do enough of as naturally, our clients always come first.

We completely remodelled our website allowing it to better promote our services. We took the time to update all of the content to ensure it portrayed our business values and conveyed what we can do to help other businesses achieve their goals.

If you haven’t already visited our website then take a look here. Make sure to visit our services pages and find out what we could do to help your business grow in 2021.

 

5. Our Clients

Finally, during such a strange and difficult year for us all, we could not do any of this without the love and support from our clients. From adapting to online consultations and meetings, to sending us heart-warming gifts in the post, our clients have been amazing during such unprecedented times.

We are so grateful for everyone’s ongoing support and we can’t wait to see what 2021 has in store for all of us.

Cannock Chase Chamber Awards – We are Shortlisted

Typically, entering for awards is not something we do, helping our clients establish and grow their business, obtain their goals, and for them to win awards is something worth celebrating for us.

This shortlisting is a testament to our team’s effort, dedication, and professionalism towards our customers and themselves, and the hard work they put in every day. And of course a special thanks to all the businesses we have and continue to work with.

Our focus is on helping our clients make the most out of their marketing investment, and in our way, help sustain and grow the regional economy.

 

As proud members of the Chamber, we are thrilled to announce The Marketing People have been shortlisted for the Cannock Chase Chambers of Commerce annual small business awards following the submissions by many well-deserving local companies.

We have heard some of our clients have submitted applications for this year’s awards, and it is great to see those we have helped in the past be shortlisted alongside us.

“Good luck” to everyone shortlisted for an award in whatever Greater Birmingham Chamber area or category you are in, and we are looking forward to being a part of the virtual ceremony in January.
