Two Pints with Will & Ralf

For nearly 10 years, Will Mellor and Ralf Little were the voice of a generation – notorious for pushing the boundaries of acceptable humour on British TV. After multiple failed attempts to reunite them, WE DID IT, through a series of podcasts and episodic content.

TikTok Brand Partnership

We’re one of only a few media publishers that hold Tik Tok’s coveted Business Privilege status. Working alongside TikTok, we’ve built an extensive knowledge of its community and influencer culture to really understand what works. We use our unique insights to power our TikTok creative – positioning brands in the most organic, native way possible.

We focus on creative, insights and the right community to tell your story. We live and love social media. We bridge the divide between brands, businesses and consumers.

Mental Health Doesn’t Discriminate

As we began to see a decline in deaths from coronavirus, it became clear that the two-month lockdown was taking its toll on the nation’s mental health. So, in the UK’s hour of need, our charity partner, The Kaleidoscope Plus Group, tasked us and our sister company, Yogurt Top Marketing, to work together and bring to life a campaign to transcend the taboos associated with mental ill-health for Mental Health Awareness Week 2020.

Unmatched understanding of consumer behaviour

The world is changing – most marketers don’t understand consumers and their world. No. They just ‘know’ them by label i.e. Boomers, Eco-warriors, Experiencers, Mums, Teens, LDA+, Opinion formers, Strivers, BLAH BLAH BLAH! Labels are jargon, they merely help perpetuate the illusion of expertise, they don’t care about truth, insight or understanding, which is why we’re stepping out to zig when others zag, eat big fish, blow shit up, in an effort to re-connect brands to consumers.

Data driven communication

Intuition is commonplace in marketing and we’re not saying there’s not a role for it in what we do, but creating content based only on our personal tastes, behaviours, experiences, suppositions, and likings is ‘marketing by selfie-stick - narcissism disguised as strategy’. Our campaigns are born from learning and understanding – from getting to really know people; who they are, what they like and how they feel. That’s what makes our creative so utterly powerful.

Geo-targeting

Geo-targeting isn’t just about pinpointing users on a map and then serving up relatable content. It’s a connector, giving you actionable data that you can analyse to identify and react to behavioural patterns. It’s about creating authentic content through understanding the consumer, which in turn, forges strong, meaningful relationships as well as improved ROI.
