We're a little different

Online, we specialise in traffic building through Pay Per Click (PPC), Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and Email Marketing (eCRM). We also offer website design, build, and development services with Drupal, Umbraco and WordPress. Finally we offer consumer engagement with Social Media and Social Media Marketing.

Offline, we design and produce printed brochures, direct marketing, outdoor marketing materials, print advertising and large format display advertising.

We’re able to provide effective bespoke solutions for our clients at a competitive price because of the way that we work, as a modern and new agency model that’s … well …. Different. This way of working means that we are geographically accessible and results in reduced overheads, directly benefiting our clients.

We embrace all technology to provide a modern working environment, suited to the needs of our clients and individual team members. We are passionate about our company culture and how this travels through all our working practices to enhance the work/life balance for everyone.

We have successfully run back to work schemes for busy mum’s with young children, and for the long term unemployed.

Our values have remained the same since Be Different was formed in 2003. We work with integrity and passion, and do what is best for our clients. We believe in being authentic, committed and to have fun while we do those things. We will always be approachable, plain speaking and open minded.

Our way of working really inspires our team and we are pleased to say that we are a happy and dedicated bunch.
