“Great things in business are never done by one person; they’re done by a team of people.”
– Steve Jobs
So you’re interested in collaborating with Newcastle Creative Co? Great! We can’t wait to get to know you & hear about your passion project.
First up, have a quick read of our general process below. This will help give you an idea of how we work (although most situations are unique and are tailored to your situation).
Next, you can test your current site and book a Discovery Session online. This is where you tell us why you need help with your business and what you’re hoping to achieve through our collaboration.
You might like to think about what the biggest pain points are with your website or digital marketing currently, and what your goals are. We look forward to collaborating with you!
We enjoy working with businesses that have:
What is it that you want to achieve? We love goals & vision at NCC and we hope you do too! This aspect of your business needs to be clearly communicated from the get go when we collaborate.
A project without goals & vision will ultimately end up wasting time and money. If you don’t have this step, we encourage you to spend some time crafting your vision & goals.
In the digital world we live in it is imperative to know your target audience. Ultimately it will make your digital budget go a lot further for you. Building & engaging with your target audience through relevant product and content is the only way to generate new customers & followers online.
If you don’t already have an audience you should be prepared to build one. This ties into your vision & goals.
The most passionate person in your business should be you. Passion is the fuel needed to keep going when the going gets tough and you need to ride those quieter times out (we all have them, it’s normal).
Building your audience & online content is hard work and it takes time. Your passion will be a direct reflection on how fast your online presence grows and how motivated your team is. We want to catch your fire!
As you can probably tell by now, we are all about collaboration. Like our mate Steve Jobs said earlier, “great things in business are never done by one person; they’re done by a team of people”.
We love bringing our different skills and expertise to the collective table to see your business succeed. So if you’re not much of a team player, don’t have a team or don’t want one, we may not be the best fit.
Cash-flow is king! If you view your website, social media & marketing like a vehicle, then cash is your petrol. No petrol = no go and your business will break down, sit there, gather dust, maybe rust… You get the idea.
If you really want your business to go places, then you’re going to need to invest some cash. We won’t break the bank, and for larger projects we offer affordable monthly payments.
One big thing we appreciate is quality communication on a regular basis. In our experience nothing slows things down and causes frustration quite like vague, slow or last minute briefing. If we work together we need your focus – in particular when we require material for your website, print or socials.
Sounds good? Now that we’ve that out of the way, let’s collaborate! Simply fill out the form below and we’ll get back to you shortly.
1. Test & Discovery
Then we’ll have a Discovery Session where we discuss your project in depth. We talk about your pain points and what you do and don’t want. This is to ensure we fully understand the scope of the project.
2. The Plan
From here the team sits down to research and strategise the best way to get your brand & business in front of your target audience in the most creative and effective way possible. We will work pretty closely with you on this as it is one of the most important steps of the process. Together, we will decide on sitemaps, landing page style, ad spend distribution, SEO approach & strategy, and more.
3. The Production
Once both parties are happy with the plan and we get the green light to move forward, our production team goes to work on developing your project and implementing the strategic plan.
4. The Revisions
For website builds, once production is done we’ll either send you a link to the draft development site or a video run-through so you can assess the progress. For Google Ads services, we’ll send you a video run-through of the account set-up for review. This part of the phase is where any required tweaks or changes are made.
5. The Delivery
After testing and tweaking is done, we work on sending your project live. The big day has finally arrived and your new Google Ads are ready to begin, SEO ready to roll out, or your new website is ready to be shown off and shared with everyone!
6. The Support
No matter what the service is, you get access to the team via our private Slack channel and we generally respond within 24-48 hours. Our SEO & Google Ads management include weekly, monthly, & annual support according to your package and with our Website Care Plans you can rest easy knowing everything is running smoothly.
