Delighted to be double digits

We’re very excited to announce that May 2018 marks the 10-year anniversary of the incorporation of Built for Marketing. So this year we’re celebrating a whole decade of our achievements!

In the beginning

It is amazing to think how much has changed since 2008; a time without tablets, before Twitter went mainstream, we had no GPS on our phones, and working remotely was almost unheard of. Built for Marketing got off the ground simply through passion, determination and appreciation for a proper business led marketing strategy.

Having worked as a Sales and Marketing Director for some time, Jules realised that more often than not, marketing strategies weren’t being aligned to a business plan. Herein lay the motivation and driving force behind Built for Marketing, and that same passion still defines us today.

Our team

Whilst Jules started on her own, Built for Marketing is now a perfectly formed team of 8, with external Marketing Consultants’ support.

Over the last 10 years the business has employed some intelligent, enthusiastic and wonderfully unique individuals. But who lives for the ordinary?

Our staff retention levels are one of our greatest achievements. At Built for Marketing we believe a happy team is the root to success and paves the way to greatness. Ensuring our team are fully engaged, constantly developing, and enjoying the work we do are at the top of our priority list.

Being a relatively small team we work hard, but with that comes playing hard too. We never miss the opportunity for a celebration, a weekend trip away or any excuse to have a gin… As cliché as it sounds, we are not just colleagues, we are friends.

We also wouldn’t be where we are today without our brilliant partners, those whose attention to detail and commitment to the client match our own. Through our love of collaboration and our extensive network, we partner with experts in their fields, from PR copywriters and website developers, to creative designers and film makers. We certainly don’t leave our clients short of choice and we enjoy working seamlessly with these partners to deliver outstanding results.

Our clients

Working as a consultancy means that no two days are the same. On a daily basis, we work for several clients, each with bespoke requirements and goals. Getting bored is not within our capabilities…In fact over the last 10 years we have worked with over 200 clients, mainly within the construction industry.

Our greatest honour and reward is in the close relationships we build with our clients. We not only belong to our Built for Marketing team, but also our clients’ teams, and are proud of it.

Our achievements

The last 10 year’s success is defined by laughter, challenges met, and being recognised for our work. We are proud to call ourselves 2x industry award winners and 4x award finalists. In fact, we have been shortlisted every time we have entered the Construction Marketing Awards; a true reflection of our passion, commitment and dedication to our clients’ business success and to the industry we sit most comfortably in.

More than this, our reputation across construction in Kent is recognised, with us having worked with some of the biggest players in the industry, and being a part of some of the leading construction bodies. Take a look at some of our case studies.

In the now

Built for Marketing firmly believe that to have a successful business you have to align your marketing plan to your business and sales strategy. This of course includes our own.

To mark this milestone in our business journey, we are launching a new, fresh and distinctly different website. More than any of its predecessors, this website represents us and our identity perfectly. 

We will also be promoting ourselves over the coming months through a carefully planned and expertly implemented communications plan!

We are immensely proud of how far we have come but we have so much more we want to achieve. The potential of the next 10 years being as fulfilling and as fun as the last 10, is our new driving force.

We hope you’ll join us in our year of celebration!
