CHRISTCHURCH, Today: A *Ferrymead-based advertising agency has launched a new fund to help support companies to bounce back from the impacts of Covid-19.
Boutique agency ALT. marketing (*which you’ll find close to the main route from the city to Sumner and the East Coast beaches) launched in 2015, is offering $50,000 in free marketing products and services as its way of supporting the business community.
ALT. marketing owner/director David Melse says many small businesses are struggling and could do with a helping hand.
“That’s why we’ve launched this incredible new fund to help businesses cut through the clutter and get the word out about their product, service or team during this challenging time,” he said.
“New Zealand is winning the battle against Covid-19, but it’s more important than ever that people know who you are – and our marketing and advertising services could be just what you need.
“ALT. marketing’s team worked from home throughout the lockdown offering pro-bono work which has delivered results.
“Our talented team helped a range of businesses prepare for remote orders by upgrading websites and launching new online ordering systems. This meant our clients were ready to serve customers as we moved through Alert Levels and restrictions eased.”
“ALT. marketing saved us $3000 per week during lockdown. It saved jobs.”
Local business owner Rajiv Biala of Maharaja Indian Restaurant said: “During lockdown ALT. marketing initiated an online ordering system for us quickly. It saved us $3000 per week on third-party order fulfilment fees.
“It saved jobs!”
Alt-Marketing has grown to a team of six since first launching five-years ago with the mission of helping businesses to become more efficient with their marketing dollars.
David Melse says his experienced team offers clients a high-quality and cost-effective approach to marketing, design, creative and digital services.
“We’re putting out clients on the map and helping them understand the huge value there is behind successfully marketing their businesses. The starting point will always be understanding the business needs of our clients and not just creating ‘noise’ for the sake of it.
“Backed by big agency experience, ALT-Marketing is continuing to attract clients and grow.
“Google & Microsoft-qualified digital marketing expert Tim Newman is the latest recruit and is impressing clients with his unique skillset.”
Newman said: “I’m a strong believer that an agency is only as good as its people and I’m looking forward to growing our team further and attracting the best talent in the creative communications industry.
“We have all the benefits of a boutique agency, coupled with ‘big agency’ experience.”
ALT. marketing offers graphic design, branding, website design, video production, product sourcing and digital marketing services. We move fast, have cost effective options and produce tangible results.
