E3C Uses Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire Growth Hub Grant as a Springboard to Double Turnover and Help Local Businesses Thrive

May 16, 2022

Staffordshire-based digital agency eighty3creative secured funding via the Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire Growth Hub, Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce and Staffordshire County Council to double its turnover and help local businesses grow and thrive.

Despite the challenges presented in a post-pandemic world, eighty3creative enjoyed a record year.

Since 2008, the digital agency in Wombourne, Staffordshire, has provided businesses with affordable and ROI-driven digital marketing, web design and branding services.

As a prominent member of the Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce, eighty3creative has actively supported local businesses throughout the pandemic and empowered them to reach new heights of growth and turnover.

Just one of these ways was providing clients with a pay-monthly plan for e-commerce website development and digital marketing services, as opposed to traditional expensive up-front costs.

This monthly plan has enabled smaller businesses in the Staffordshire community to create a digital presence and prioritise business growth and development.

“As we all know, the world’s gone digital”, said eighty3creative’s Managing Director, Craig Slater.

“The funding received via the Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire Growth Hub has enabled us to service more clients and make an even bigger impact. We’re repaying that faith and aim to make a real difference to the local community.”

Craig concluded, “Our approach is to grow with the client and to add value. We understand the importance of digital, but we also appreciate the costs involved in building an e-commerce website and utilising digital marketing.

That’s why we offer our clients an ROI-driven monthly service, not just one-off smaller jobs, which garner limited tangible results. The funding has given us a platform to do what we know and do best, but for more local businesses.”

Over the past 12 months, eighty3creative have helped many notable local businesses in Staffordshire and the West Midlands thrive using digital marketing, including Hills Electrical, Wolverson X-Ray Ltd, Ramsay Rubber & Plastics Ltd.

Since receiving the funding, eighty3creative has hired a new web developer and office manager to offer a more rounded and supportive service. After doubling their turnover, they hope to build on this triumph and collaborate with more forward-thinking businesses in 2022.
