Steve Cranswick

General manager and National Account Manager Plastics & manufacturing industry.

VSMM have provided an exceptional marketing support service to a sales team that were looking to improve their visibility within a market that had competitors that were established and acknowledged as some of the best within the industry, the challenge for VSMM was to capture the ethos of our business within the plastics industry and engage others in a positive outlook as the business grew and faced the challenges that plastics now faces.
I worked closely with VSMM in the development of new product development and re-branding established products to reach other markets.

This was achieved and grew sales by the innovative and fun approach with facts! Utilising a product and seeing its qualities that others missed
brought an increase in sales and placed the business within reach of our competitors, often having our marketing work copied to enhance their own product appearance.

Exhibitions, social media, editorials, relationship building, design development the input of VSMM has been essential to the growth and
development of a positive appearance for both products and the business within a sector that is surrounded by negativity!

Vision & Values

Many small to mid size organisations quickly expand without thinking about what their future business could look like. This lack of clear business
vision can ultimately hamper growth, as well as employee engagement. With the support of VSMM they identified our wish list and must have list and created a vision and values based approach with customer and employee buy in.

Business Development

If you are struggling to grow or thinking about entering new markets, VSMM has the expertise to help you plan and implement your strategy.
from product and market research to rigorous business development processes, VSMM has the expertise to implement change in your organisation.

"I am very pleased to recommend VSMM, I had worked closely with them for most of 2017 helping to build the marketing strategy, market presence and social presence of Binary Life. VSMM performed this role flawlessly and made a huge positive difference to the way we do business.
VSMM are a creative problem-solver, they are dependable, always meet deadlines, and on the rare occasions were unable to do so, would highlight in advance of this and work closely with me to agree re-mediating actions for things that were beyond their control. VSMM are always professional with a broad range of skills that complement their friendly character. 
I can attest to their integrity, careful attention to detail and attitude, their comments are always well thought out and clearly articulated, communication is always clear, both in written and verbal form. I trusted them implicitly to work to the plans we had agreed and to deliver on their promises.

VSMM handles marketing tasks efficiently, and over the time I worked with them, I saw significant enhancement within their knowledge in our business sector, embracing this growth with open arms. Emma (owner) is a tireless worker, intelligent and ambitious, punctual, reliable, and hard-working, willing to go beyond what is required, when the need arises.

Without a doubt, Emma  and VSMM are an asset to any organisation, I have every confidence in their ability to perform and recommend without reservation. They will be successful in any enterprise she undertakes, and I hope very much to work with them again in the future."

 

 

 

 

 

 

Suzi Lowther

NED, marketing & communications consultant and business owner​.

Although we rent our holiday cottage out using an agency, we decided we wanted to start to build a social media presence of our own.

VSMM set up a twitter account for us, making sure we were following and followed by a large group of relevant people who could potentially like and share our content.
They also put together a comprehensive list of hashtags to use in posts. Having tried to do this ourselves in the past with no real success, this has proved to be the critical difference. Using hashtags regularly and consistently has definitely increased the numbers of likes and shares we receive but, more importantly, it has grown our audience and improved the impact and value of our social media activity.
Doing that groundwork must have been a painstaking process but, for us, it has been invaluable. I would definitely recommend getting VSMM on board to help."

Small business Owner, Minnesota USA.​

"I met the owner of VSMM at an event within the events industry. After chatting over coffee for a little while, I decided to approach them to plan two events, the first my daughters wedding, the second a Christmas party for my business, for the UK colleagues.

We not only wanted the event planned in different timezone's, we wanted each event planned digitally, setting up websites, mail-chimp updates, invite notifications, managing meal plans, planning entertainment, organising decoration, the list was endless, and often changing, depending on what idea entered my head at the time.

The whole process was seamless, (the only issues were on my part for not responding to emails on time), although i promptly received an sms if it was over 24 hours! The events ran well, and the feedback was very positive, the social media, planning and management of the whole digital side, was well managed, and planned thoroughly, if you are looking for a company that can handle everything, and if they can't finds someone who can, then VSMM  worth considering, I highly recommend!

‘I have been fortunate to work with VSMM & NDWEP on a few occasions. I’m a bespoke wedding cake maker and VSMM organised a photo shoot to promote a local wedding venue, for which I provided the display cake.

It was my first photo shoot but VSMM  organised everything perfectly, and made everything easy. It was a great success and lead to a photo of my cake from that shoot appearing in Tatler, and many other shoots have followed.

VSMM allow me to do what I do best, and I know I can trust them to take care of things professionally and make it look effortless.’
