Happy's marketing news - 19.05.17

It’s been a busy week in the marketing world, here’s what has caught our eye!

McDonald’s hit the headlines for the wrong reasons this week. The fast-food giant has been forced to remove its latest advert in the UK after upset TV viewers complained it “exploits childhood bereavement”. The company’s advert features a boy asking his mother questions about his dead father as he struggles to find things he has in common with him.
Last week’s cyber-attack wiped out most NHS computers in the UK and affected more than 120 countries across the globe. Though “ransomware” is nothing knew and happens more than we give them the headlines for, the BBC have put together a handy glossary for us all. If you aren’t already aware, this blog is well worth a look to gem up on the various words they use!
This might cause some friction in creative agencies across the north west but Manchester is the leading regional market for creative talent, according to a new report. CBRE’s Creative Regions report showcased the Top 25 Regional Creative locations outside of London. Factors taken into account included the concentrations of creative businesses and professionals, talent pools of highly educated graduate populations, millennial populations, transport connections, quality of life, and proximity to universities with strong research and computer science ratings. Manchester was found to have the key ingredients to progress and develop as a future destination for the creative industries, including publishing, film, TV, media, digital, computer programming and information services.
Top brands should remain agile and not be scared to admit when a formula is no longer working, according to marketers from Nokia, Lego and FatFace. The brands were speaking at a Launch 360 event, hosted by agency Five by Five, in London, where Sara Holt, digital marketing director at Lego, spoke about her experience of product launches both in her current role and while at the BBC and UKTV.
We’ve had the “smiley”, the “LGBT” and even the “beardy” so it was only a matter of time before the “ginger” happened. Yes, the ginger emoji is on its way, excited? This will be welcome news for the 21,000 people who signed a petition two years ago to bring in a redhead emoji.

Social Media

We’ll help define the right social media strategy for you, so that you’re on the right platforms, saying the right things to the right people at the right time to generate the right leads.

Design & Brand Building

Marketing is bit like those huge, swirling flocks of starlings you see from time to time. Individually your brochure, email, ad, meme or gif may not change the world.

But when you join them together and ensure they’re all heading in the same direction, you have the power to stop people in their tracks.

We design communications that help build a consistent brand and convert more leads to sales.

Your website can generate leads in so many ways. Informed content. Strong calls to action. A simple, natural journey from ‘Hi there!’ to ‘Buy now’.

Yet websites are never ‘done’. They need to keep evolving to keep pace with your customers’ expectations, so we’ll be with you for the long haul to keep tweaking, refining and growing your site – and to deliver the PPC campaigns that help drive traffic towards it.

Because when your website keeps working to understand and speak to your audience, you’ve got more chance of converting.

PR & Content

There’s a knack to ensuring your business is seen in the right places at the right time. We’ll build your PR profile across the mix of channels that’s right for you (from press to social media to events) and use our contacts to spread the word.

So when your customers are ready to buy, it’ll be your brand they think of first.
