Whilstsome clients order full marketing campaigns, others prefer an ad hoc model, where as part of anoverall strategy we might run B2B or B2C social media campaigns, develop an English web presenceand produce marketing material such as press releases, localised copy or create a search engineoptimised video to attract English speaking customers.
