CREATIVE AND DEVELOPMENT
« We manage a brand in the same way as we would do if it belonged to us and with integrity. »
As we license your brand, we take it as a « joint venture » between you and us. Each step of the production, design and advertising of the product is agreed by you.
MARKETING AND DIGITAL
« Being creative today is the main goal of every brand. »
We have many years of creativity. Working closely with brand owners, we develop and implement brand guidelines to all our communication, from advertising, point of sale, retail space design to literature & digital campaigns.
« Marketing is at the center of all that we do because we understand the importance of reaching the right consumer effectively."
Working hand-in-Hand with the sales team, marketing has the responsibility to plan strategy, execute promotional and support plans to retailers.
We do this while nurturing relationships with brand owners, suppliers and retailers to ensure our brands perform at their highest potential in the UK market.
Whether you have own marketing program or digital strategy or whether you need help in establishing or tailoring certain elements for your brand, we have the expertise to help your fragrance and beauty brand succeed.
PR AND COMMUNICATION
