Marvin & The Starlighters

By |October 13th, 2011|Beno, Fun Stuff, Latest News, TB Marketing|

   Fame at last! Great spot from our mates at Windsor... Can't beat a bit of twist rock.

Two shows. One no-show.

By |September 28th, 2011|Beno, Doncaster Marketing, Latest News|

You might wonder what possesses the organisers of two logistics exhibitions to hold shows in Doncaster on the same day, we certainly have. Today is the second of two days for the Logistics Link North show ("an unmissable opportunity to test and compare"), held in a cavernous empty warehouse and the first of the two day Totally Logistics North show ("Redefining the Logistics exhibition experience") at the home of our favourite jolly, Doncaster Racecourse. With our forklift-clients hat on, we’ve popped in to see what all the fuss is about and have to agree with our mate Mr MacLeod that they’ve put Doncaster on the map ‘for the wrong reasons’. Still, the Racecouse show looks busy enough and the Link guys will probably find adequate reasons to do it all again. Judging by the quizzical looks on their faces, I’m not sure our [...]

A Bit Of A ‘Situation’ Situation

By |August 25th, 2011|Danielle, Latest News, Public Relations, TB Marketing|

Can paying an undesirable customer not to use your products save you from brand damage- or does it because more harm than good? Concerned that its brand image was going to be tainted by the stars of popular reality TV show Jersey Shore (nope I’ve never heard of it either) US clothing brand Abercrombie & Fitch have taken the bold step of offering to pay the cast NOT to wear its clothes. […]

Why Every Woman Wants to be Engaged

By |August 22nd, 2011|Advertising, Danielle, Latest News|

A-ha! So that’s why we always want to spend your money, new research finds women pay more attention to and are therefore more engaged in ads than men. Measuring the effectiveness of advertising is a hard one to crack and when targeting consumers the separate interests and feelings of both men and women are major factors in marketing communications campaigns.

Insert Jumping Student Cliche Here

By |August 19th, 2011|Beno, Public Relations|

When you see photos of jumping, hugging, crying A-level students, you’d at least be forgiven for expecting them to have taken their exams this year! Unlike a couple of former tax dodgers who were snapped having just opened their A-level results at Hayesfield Girls’ School on August 19, 2010 in Bath, only to be seen in the Guardian this week. A picture may speak a thousand words, but it also makes a handy shortcut for cliche-loving newspapers on the lookout for a quick way to tell an often complicated story. Jumping (with paper in hand), crying and hugging are evidently visual shortcuts to ‘young person just got their results’ but they’re not the only ones. […]

Ten Cool Doncaster Marketing Examples (and a couple of very bad ones)

By |July 15th, 2011|Beno, Doncaster Marketing, Latest News|

Most of our work is focused on other parts of the world… Northampton, Hinckley, Gamston, Hull, er, Seoul… We don’t do as much as we’d like to locally (pay attention Doncaster business owners!) but maybe that will change soon. We are, however, always looking around for examples of cool marketing ideas, and sometimes they’re close to home. We had a vote on our favourites from Doncaster (in the interests of fairness, none of them are ours!) here’s what we came up with… Doncaster Marketing examples 10th: Jimmy’s Open All Hours sign Pros: Look! That really is where they filmed Open All Hours! Cons: Is that the best they could come up with? Bigger Con: The actual shop is somewhere else (actually here)! And it’s a bloomin hairdressers! Bloody marketing! […]

Don’t Print Me

By |June 27th, 2011|Beno, Latest News, TB Marketing|

Where do you get your news from? Chances are there’s a variety of news sources on your radar, but soon newspapers might not be one of them. It’s probably about as good a time to start a newspaper as it is to get into pay phones or vhs shops, but that didn’t stop the Independent launching the “I” this year and being the only mashed up tree to see its circulation increase when the last lot of figures came out (thanks to being a:good, b:cheap and c:tv advertised). Figures for newspaper readership look fairly robust, until you think about where they used to be and where they are going. […]

It’s all about the children…

By |June 23rd, 2011|Latest News, Patrick, TB Marketing|

Pato is a big charity fan, so you can imagine his reaction when someone came into the office from Donna’s Dream House… he was of course, very excited. Pato described the Dreamhouse as, a place for poorly kids in Blackpool, but it was probably the Abba music on their website that really got his attention. Well, that and the sweets. […]

Ash’s trip to Westexe

I recently had the opportunity to pay our friends down at Westexe a visit for a fun filled day of farmers, food, animals and lots and lots of cider drinking at the Devon County Fair! […]

The Kate-Factor: A Consumer Fairy-tale

By |June 6th, 2011|Danielle, Public Relations|

As a girl who is constantly trawling the internet for the latest shoes, dresses, handbags, shoes, makeup, jewellery…oh, and did I mention shoes? It’s difficult not get caught up in the latest fashion craze that is Kate Middleton. […]

My first six months at TB Marketing

By |June 1st, 2011|Danielle, TB Marketing|

As the newest edition to Team Beno this is my first blog post. I think the first post you do is always the most difficult and I definitely found it challenging to actually get round to writing this. […]

Foggy Mountain Breakdown - Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs

The fear of being watched by a duck…

The correct placement of an ad is often as important as the ad itself, as demonstrated by this epic fail…

News That’s Dead Good

By |May 27th, 2011|Latest News, Public Relations, TB Marketing|

There can’t be many things that have stayed stuck in there from my actual university days (they were ahem, a few years or so ago afterall) but one thing that certainly stayed with me is the inevitability of communication. The idea that whatever you do and however you say it, you ARE sending a message to customers, suppliers, prospects and other key audiences. Perhaps it was the absurd analogy of a dead person communicating that they weren’t alive by ‘not breathing’ that made it so memorable. Whatever, I’m glad it stayed in there. When you consider this idea, it maybe shifts the focus on ‘whether’ you communicate, onto ‘what’. Many clients now accept the idea that bad news fills a communication vacuum. It might just be gossip or it might be malicious, but either way, it’s easy to see examples of companies getting a hard time or fending off wild rumours when there’s no official viewpoint to fall back on.

Having A Ball

By |May 6th, 2011|Latest News, TB Marketing|

All the gang recently upped sticks and attended the lovely BITA Ball at the equally lovely Stratford Upon Avon. Pato enjoyed the dancing, Aislin enjoyed the comedian, Tony enjoyed the chat and DJ enjoyed the choons! We were most taken aback by the lovely outfits on display - especially these from the, er, brave Peter MacLeod and Rob Fisher. Well done boys! Thanks also to the lovely folk at HSS and Doosan for inviting us.
