Helping SMEs to cash in online this Christmas

To celebrate a decade in business this month, digitalbeans is supporting local businesses to invest in digital and keep growing in spite of tightening COVID restrictions.

In its tenth year in business, digitalbeans is giving business owners the confidence to try digital marketing. All too aware of the financial pressures facing many of businesses, the agency has unveiled a new brand promise enabling clients to capitalise on increased internet use and ecommerce growth risk-free.

Brands including a Maidstone-based online retailer for stylish breastfeeding apparel, have already benefited. The Milky Tee Company’s investment in digital marketing throughout the pandemic has achieved a 1,000% return on advertising spend – for every £1 spent, £10 was made – leading to stock sell-out in August.

“Online sales have steadily increased over the past few years; however, activity has really jumped since the country went into lockdown in March. In this climate, businesses without a well-promoted ecommerce platform will struggle to serve and attract customers, missing out on vital opportunities to recover Covid losses in the run up to Christmas,” says Piperis Filippaios, MD at digitalbeans.

The web development and digital marketing agency specialises in supporting SME growth across the South East; its new service guarantee inspires confidence in the potential of digital marketing campaigns. digitalbeans promises to achieve an agreed return on investment in the first six months of work, otherwise it will work for free until the target is met. Removing the financial risk, the team makes it easier for business owners to try digital marketing.

Piperis continues: “Businesses are understandably cautious about investing in previously untried sales tactics. Especially now, the risk of making no return on investment and upsetting cash flow is too great for many. Removing this barrier to growth could really help retailers to boost Christmas sales and secure a prosperous future.

“Our brand promise embodies everything we stand for as an agency – measurable results that drive success for SMEs and start-ups. These businesses play a vital role in the UK’s economic success and in our own agency growth. We’re thrilled to celebrate this company milestone, which feels even more of an achievement after this year, and we want to ensure SMEs continue to survive and thrive in this new market. ”
