Newton-le-Willows based Willow Printing received digital marketing support and tendering support from our Business Growth Proramme.

Cheryl Lamble, Director at Willow Printing, said: “With the support of the marketing consultant we enhanced our online and social media presence. We wanted to make sure that the company image remained professional and that the advertising was effective.

“With a new online ordering service we wanted to make sure everything we do follows digital marketing best practice – for example making our content search engine friendly.

“The strategy that we developed will ensure that our website will enable us to present our offering to bigger blue chip companies, and we expect that it will help us to win new contracts and grow the business.

“I would definitely recommend the Business Growth Programme to other businesses no matter how well they think they are doing. Business is looking really good for us and we have already secured a couple of new clients since developing our social media strategy.”
