WHAT WE DO.

WEB DESIGN
If you have started a new business (exciting!) and need a website or have a website but think it’s rubbish, we can help. We can build you a website to be proud of and most importantly make your competitors jealous. Don’t be afraid to say hello to find out more about the magic behind a MacMartin website.
SEO & PAID SEARCH
Google is VERY clever… but so are we. We understand how Google works and what it takes for customers to find you online. The ins and outs of this are far too boring and time consuming for you to worry about. Let us take care of it. Just make sure you’re ready to handle all the new business!
SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING
The power of social media is frightening but somehow always gets pushed to the bottom of the ‘to do’ list. We can take it off your hands and help you to communicate with your customers effectively, as well as teach you how to avoid the common pitfalls. It’s not as easy as it looks.
GRAPHIC DESIGN
You have probably spent a lot of time and effort building your business, so don’t let it down with bad design work. Your logo, leaflet, menu, brochure etc. act as the face of your business and tell customers what you are all about. Don’t risk it - make sure it's right!
EMAIL MARKETING
Your inbox is probably flooded with marketing emails from all sorts of businesses. We know it can be annoying… very annoying, BUT it is also very effective for generating sales and leads. A carefully thought out, beautiful looking, helpful and interesting email can work wonders for your business.
BRANDING
Have you ever sat down (with a cup of tea) and really thought about what your business is trying to say? Is that message consistent? Use our skills to help strengthen your brand… we’ll provide the tea (and maybe even a biscuit if you’re lucky).
COPYWRITING
Unless you are a keen writer, you will probably groan at the thought of writing new content for your website, blog, brochure or anything else that involves words. The Mac AND The Martin really enjoy writing and we can adapt our writing styles accordingly.
PHOTOGRAPHY
Pictures speak 1,000 words so they say. Every business should invest in great photographs. Photographs of food, products, staff, buildings and events are some common requests. Taking a few snaps on your iPhone doesn’t quite cut it anymore. We have all the gear and a lot of ideas!
TRAINING
Sometimes you might like to do things for yourself. We run various digital marketing ‘hands-on’ training courses that can be delivered at your own place of work, with your own staff. We will teach you everything that we know (even our top secrets) and be on hand to help where we can afterwards.

WHO WE ARE.

 Sisters that love to get creative.

We are a sisterly double act who get really excited about design and marketing. We have put our childhood differences aside (‘borrowing’ clothes, fighting over who sits in the front seat… that sort of thing) and have teamed up to offer a unique, friendly and straight talking service to small and medium businesses.

Having both worked as Marketing Managers for many years in our ‘real jobs’, we each made the decision to become self-employed after starting our families. We would regularly go to each other for advice and to refer clients to one another. This is when we realised that our different skill sets were incredibly complimentary… and MacMartin Creative was born.

We are not an agency (and we certainly don’t charge as much). We bridge the gap between an agency and an employee; we work anywhere and everywhere, so don’t have agency overheads or pass on any unnecessary costs. We also understand that you may not want to commit yourselves to another employee (just in case) and so offer something between the two; a friendly and professional service that you can use as and when you need it.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.

WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE MACMARTIN CREATIVE?

This is a question that we get asked a lot, and aside from how fantastic (and modest) we are, there are four main reasons that people choose to use us:

1. We bridge the gap between agency and employee: We don’t have agency overheads, so we don’t have to pass on any unnecessary costs. The average cost of a Digital Marking Agency is £800 per day (ouch!) We also understand that you may not want to commit yourselves to another employee (just in case…)

2. Our costs are extremely competitive and transparent: £35 per hour. That’s it!

3. We are very flexible to your needs: You won’t be contracted into a certain number of hours per month, as you never know what you will need! We keep in close contact with you and charge by the hour. Simple as that.

4. We care about your business: We never take on too many clients at once, and most of our clients have been working with us for years. We try and get to know your business and always look out for its best interest.
