At Bewonder* we are made up of a team of more than 50 bold and brave marketing specialists.
We set ourselves aside from any other marketing agency…we are a wow, how did you do that
agency; offering a one-to-one service like no other.
We are about trying something new…turning the ordinary into extraordinary
- delivering results differently.
Our 360º approach sets us apart; working to meet your objectives and exceed KPIs,
communicating on a platform most suited to you.
Whatever the time, whatever the question, we are ready and waiting.
So, welcome to our world and come on in, be prepared to see things differently.
We create charismatic and compelling experiences. We have the courage to be different and we’ll encourage you to do the same.
So are you ready?
Our SWOT Team won’t leave a stone unturned to find the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to your brand. This is what helps us build the foundations of your marketing plan.
A goal is just a wish without a plan. That’s why we’ll develop a strategy that makes the most of your investment, keeps your goal in mind and delivers amazing, measurable results.
When it comes to creative, we don’t just think outside the box. We throw the box out and get to work on creating unforgettable, interactive eye candy. Creating memories, experiences and amazing results is in our DNA.
Details, details, details. We’ll take care of every last one, making sure that every stage of your event runs smoothly. We’ll do whatever it takes to make your event even better than the one you had in your head.
Pixels, we love them, but we make them work – really hard. We create fierce digital strategies to guarantee real stand out. Websites, apps, social media, whatever it is, we’ll make sure your audience finds you and loves you online.
Creativity and collaboration – it’s a combo that brings clients, retailers and brands together. Just like fish and chips or Bonnie and Clyde, we’ve found it’s a brilliant combo that quite simply works.
PR gives us the chance to tell a story, build a personality and keep people talking far longer than an advert could. That’s why our in-house PR experts are always beavering away on brilliant brand reputations.
Our very clever media bods have said that media buying is a lot like comedy – it’s all about timing. So they’ll make sure that your brand is seen in the right place, at the right time, for the best price.
Our B2B marketing isn’t built on luck. It’s built on marketing strategies that generate leads, insight action and deliver a big, fat return on that investment of yours.
“We worked closely with Bewonder* team on the Big Green Leaf campaign, delivering 9 innovative consumer and community focussed events with a sustainability theme across our Regional Retail portfolio. The Bewonder* team were expertly placed to liaise with retailers and suppliers on our behalf and worked very efficiently to meet the demanding 9 week schedule. The original concept, high quality of the events and thorough reporting, demonstrating return on investment, were particularly impressive.”
– Adam Bray, Senior Corporate Affairs Manager, The Crown Estate –
“Bewonder* have provided an exemplary service for us on a number of schemes over the years. They have always sought to understand both the assets and us as a client including our aspirations for schemes. They have shown themselves to be innovative, proactive, adaptable and have consistently delivered results significantly above expectations and targets. The relationships that they have developed with our retailers on site have greatly assisted in delivering successful marketing plans year on year. They stand apart as a result.”
– Helen Snooks, Senior Asset Manager –
Think of Rubix as a giant Bewonder* brain. It’s the intelligent CRM system that’s been specifically designed for retail destinations. Not only does it help us to understand and connect with key audiences – be they shoppers in a shopping centre, occupiers in an office or residents in a residential complex, it also helps us grow databases and really understand the people we are engaging with.
And it doesn’t end there, we can use that information to group people on your database so we can target them with personalised communications. Bespoke email marketing, real time reporting – we’ve got Rubix to thank for it all. Very clever.
What can Rubix do?
· Bespoke email campaigns – white labelled specifically for your asset.
· Regular communications with occupiers – engaging with them to promote events and communicate key company messages.
· Welcome campaigns to more in depth occupier surveys and competitions.
· Out of hours crisis communications – emails, texts to all staff, employees and customers.
· Rubix can be used to send SMS and communicate quickly and directly with occupiers.
· Satisfaction surveys
· Real time reporting and analytics
Bringing out the pirate, spaceman, tiger and caveman that lives in every child… As part of a campaign to encourage children to get creative, Bewonder* launched the Purple Apple Award winning family experience; Snapper Jaxx – a quirky, engaging and free active kids club, born from the desire to deliver innovative and imaginative themed events that would build customer loyalty and drive sales.
A number of our clients had run kids clubs before but had always failed to deliver the level of creativity and imaginative play that children crave, and therefore failed to generate customer loyalty and repeat visits.
Snapper Jaxx exceeds all expectations; with an average of 250 children per session and retailer sales increases of up to 12% YoY, the interactive event utilises specialist performers to teach children new songs and crafts, giving them plenty of reasons to return to the next session!
We’re the best at what we do because of our team.
More than 35 very individual individuals make up our fabric.
All bringing something different to the table,
we’re bonded by our like-minded passion for creativity.
