Work Experience With Onside

This week we had Olivia from Fallibroome Academy in with us to gain experience and insight into working in a marketing agency. Throughout the week she worked on a number of projects, even contributing to a number of creative idea sessions. The Onside team thoroughly enjoyed having her here and hope to see her in the future.

Here’s what she had to say:

I had a wonderful time at Onside for my work experience. I learnt a great deal about the varied sections within a marketing agency such as advertising, web design, social media engagement and the importance of marketing. The team at Onside are all truly lovely, inviting people and brimming with enthusiasm for their work. The atmosphere at Onside is very cheerful, encouraging me to feel instantly at ease in the work-place. Which I felt made it easier for myself as quite a systematic, shy person be able to think more creatively and speak up, to share my ideas. Furthermore, I learnt that at Onside they work in such an ebullient environment to explore creative ideas and craft a new diverse concept that correlates with the brand and ensures brilliant results. In my time with Onside, John educated me on how to use social media for marketing, by displaying information in a certain way to create a personality for the company or brand that’s more inviting and welcoming to customers, so the brand has a bigger online presence, which gets companies noticed in today’s high intensity, developing, fast paced market. It was very interesting learning how to set up online profiles for companies on platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Instagram, understanding how much social media affects brand recognition and visibility online, such as how creating a Google+ account strengthens a companies SEO. I thoroughly enjoyed working with the whole team over the week, and feel it’s been a great experience.

Celebrating success with our client Oakwrights

Celebrating success with our client Oakwrights

Since we started working with Oakwrights in Hereford 3 years ago, we have worked hard with them to grow their brand into true industry leaders of oak frame homes and buildings in the UK. A couple of years ago, they achieved their very first back-to-back £1 million sales success, and of the first 6 months of this financial year, they have exceeded £1 million in 5 of those months. This called for even bigger celebrations at this year’s annual barbecue at their head office in Hereford. John and Dave headed along to join in the fun- even getting their country heads on and ‘wild camping’ in an adjoining field. As you will see from our video, following the traditional Oakwrights axe throwing competition, maybe we should maybe stick to marketing… As specialist in marketing manufacturing companies, Onside Creative were where Oakwrights turned when they decided to #makethingshappen. Find out what we can do for you…

Vulcan’s last flight over Woodford

Vulcan’s last flight over Woodford

Last weekend, we waved goodbye to the legendary Avro Vulcan XH558. First launched in 1956, the Vulcan retired in 1984 and the delta wing silhouette remains an iconic design even today.  A vision of Avro’s Chief Designer, Roy Chadwick, the plane has a fond memory for local residents who remember seeing the futuristic designs appear overhead many decades ago. For the younger fans, the delta wing design and incredible sound of the Vulcan XH558 epitomise everything about what a jet plane should be! The Onside team were there to wave her goodbye, and we thought we would share the experience with you in this video. Take a look!

Over the last decade, we have built a reputation as specialists in marketing manufacturing companies. The term covers a wide range of industries, but can be simply defined as a company that ‘makes things’. For our clients, this can range across a wide array of products – cranes, lighting, luxurious kitchens, aluminium sliding doors, windows, incredible timber frame homes, fork lift trucks amongst many more. Throughout this time, we have established and built some really exciting brands, campaigns and ideas, so many, that we decided to showcase a few of them in a book which will be due out throughout the Summer. However, if you get in touch with us (either complete the request form, email john@onsidecreative.co.uk or call 01625 584464), we can send you an electronic version as soon as it’s complete, or post you a free copy when it lands on our doorstep from the printers.

Manufacturing marketing specialist

As a full service agency, we work alongside a wide range of manufacturing and lifestyle clients in a flexible capacity. In some cases, we are a brand’s sole marketing resource, and in others, we work alongside their in house team. For global German manufacturing giants Jungheinrich, we create ideas and campaigns to successfully promote the brand in the UK market. With a growing focus in the UK, simply mirroring campaigns that have been rolled out in other markets is not an option. Onside create ideas that really stand out from Jungheinrich’s competitors and convey key messages in a targeted, informative and engaging manner. A recent campaign saw us promote the health and safety aspects of Jungheinrich’s products, portraying the built-in features within the trucks as created by their engineers who have health and safety in their DNA. Take a look at this and other work we have put together for Jungheinrich on our projects section where you will see a range of creative marketing campaigns in a wide range of sectors. Alternatively, call John or Dave on 01625 584464 to find out more.
