A Month in the Life…

Well it’s been a hectic summer so far at SVC HQ with all kinds of projects kicking off and gearing up nicely…

Firstly – as you can see above, we’ve been taking advantage of the summer sunshine to help our friends at Canoe2 get the most out of the summer months. This year has been the guys’ busiest yet with visitors all over the Boathouse shop every day of the summer holidays. We’ve been hard at work keeping the guys stocked with fresh social media and email goodness, as well as planning for their big charity event with Spurgeons later in the summer as well.

Next, we’ve been hard at work with our friends at SpaceVac supporting the launch of a whole range of new distributors around the world as they continue their quest for global domination. This month we’ve been working on a range of marketing materials to support these companies in countries like Brazil, Slovakia, Lithuania and Austria in this month alone.

Meanwhile, as we start working on a number of retail and merchandising projects in the run up to Ch******s (which we still can’t bring ourselve. In addition we’ve also been hard at work finishing up some new projects with the guys at the Northamptonshire Logistics Forum as they gear up for the release of the new SEATS guidance later this month, helping to standardise quality and safety levels among temporary drivers.

It’s a really interesting project working a whole range of partners to create a range of engaging online and offline materials to support the rollout of the campaign across Northants – and hopefully further afield in the future.

All told between all of the above and criss-crossing the county recording content for the Nene Valley Festival Podcast, (the fifth episode of which just went live!) its been an absolutely crazy few weeks!

Keep up to date with everything we are up to by connecting with on social media (We live at @soverycreative everywhere!) or get in touch to see how we can do something very creative for you!

Drop In Session @ ENC, Thrapston

So you might remember that we posted on here a week or two back on the work we are doing to help with the Nene Valley Festival this year…

This week, as part of our festival outreach, we will be taking part in a drop in session at East Northamptonshire Council with our colleagues from Destination Nene Valley. This free event will take place between 10am and 12pm on Thursday July 26th.

The purpose of the event is for partners, event organisers and businesses from across the Nene Valley to join us and find out a little more on what the festival has to offer this year and how partners can get involved to both help maximise their own exposure but also work with us to help make the festival as big a success as possible.

For more information on the drop-in session, please contact us or get in touch with Karen Williams at East Northamptonshire Council.

Please note if you are unable to join us for this session, the next date will be August 30th at

Digital Marketing Strategy Workshop for DNV

Well we had a lot of fun this morning in Thrapston, with a group of businesses from the Nene Valley region who joined us for a workshop around building a sound digital strategy.

The morning covered quite a lot of ground from the principles of a sound digital strategy through to tips and tools for making the most of online activity. Hopefully folks left with at least one or two good ideas to put to the test when they get back to their desks this afternoon!

You can download the presentation from this mornings event by submitting your email address in the short form below (just like we talked about this morning guys!) so we hope some of you guys find this useful.

In the meantime, we thank the team at DNV and East Northamptonshire Council for their hospitality this morning and for looking after us. Really hope to be back in the Nene Valley soon for some more fun like this morning!

In the meantime heres some links to some of the tools and resources I mentioned:

Workshop Announced: Developing Engaging Content Strategies

We are super excited to announce that we are going to be holding another free marketing workshop for businesses across the Nene Valley.

We have run a couple of these sessions now with the team at East Northamptonshire Council and the Nene Valley project and they are always a really interesting mix of businesses from across the region.

Last time, we spent the morning in Thrapston learning about a whole world of new tools, apps and tricks to help businesses begin to generate more interesting and nicer looking content for their social media feeds (you can find a blog on the session over here). This time out, we are going to take that learning one step to further to begin thinking about how we can tie all of our online activity together in a more concerted, strategic way.

As usual, we aim to deliver these sessions in an informative, friendly way and send our businesses home at the end with a range of takeaways and ideas to get stuck into in their own businesses right away.

The session is taking place in Thrapston on November 23rd at the Council Chambers at East Northamptonshire Council from 10am and is completely free for businesses in the Nene Valley region.
