BRAND-LED BUSINESS
GROWTH AGENCY

About Us

We like to think that Focus7 is living proof that not all marketing and digital agencies are the same. Although we are skilled in all the design agency disciplines, we never start by offering to sell you a website, a logo or a campaign. If you ask us for something, we always ask why. We’ll recommend a cost-effective workshop here at our Herts agency HQ to define your driving purpose and define what you do better than your competitors.

Then we’ll help you ignite that brand difference by communicating it consistently, creatively and powerfully. Online, offline, all the time. Your most important asset is your team of people, so we’ll make sure they are aligned, united and motivated.

That will help us as we work alongside you to target growth, monitor growth and plan for more growth; funded by the incremental success we deliver. The power of brand is a beautiful thing – just take a look at some of our recent case studies.

Brand means finding the heart of your business and making it beat faster. Brand means celebrating what makes you better than the rest – and exploiting it commercially. Above all, at Focus7, #BrandMeansBusiness.

GIVING BACK

Giving back isn’t just part of our ‘CSR policy’ – it’s a way of working.

We fundraise for a number of fantastic local and national charities, including Isabel Hospice, Asthma UK, Breast Cancer Haven and Alzheimer’s Research UK. As signatories of the Armed Force Covenant, we pledge our support to those who serve and have served, and continue this through assisting veteran charities. In addition, we’re passionate about doing our bit for the environment – promoting green practices and choosing to work with clients and partners who share our eco-friendly values. So much so, we’ve even been finalists for regional environmental awards!
