Northern Secrets Ltd

Northern Secrets Ltd. was founded by Alex Jacobs in 2007 to serve incoming groups to North East England. Alex was the youngest person to ever qualify as a Blue Badge Guide and along with a Tourism Marketing degree and hands on experience in the hotel industry, is well-placed to understand and serve this market.

Alex is half-German, half-Geordie and Northern Secrets ALSO has a major client based in Germany and Northern Europe.

The agency has grown from strength-to-strength over the past few years and needed an enhanced web presence and communications tools to support the next stage of expansion. It was essential that all software and communications tools could be managed in-house and ideally, from anywhere, as Alex travels regularly on business.

Our brief was to help Northern Secrets rationalise and streamline customer communications and CRM, source a web developer/designer, support the website development, ensure integration and ‘user-friendliness’ of all software platforms and web-based tools with any offline marketing.

The project included Database Cleansing and Segmentation, selection of communications and CRM software, CRM and e-communications set-up and ‘launch’, new website with CMS (WordPress) and refreshed brand, and a comprehensive Marketing Strategy and Plan.

The brand refresh, new bi-lingual website design and build were provided by Arttia Creative.

Joanne is a pleasure to work with – she has great ideas, not only on marketing, but on making a business more efficient, streamlined and, to put it in one word, better!

She is patient and takes her time to listen and understand the business she is working with.

Thanks to Joanne we have new business contacts, have been able to receive funding for projects and have more insight into our customers and can act faster to change.

We are looking forward to working with Joanne in the future.
