Challenge & Activity

The agency was taking-on low value projects with much of it being return business and most of the new business coming through word-of-mouth or referrals. They were keen to take-on larger projects with higher value. However, there were some initial reservations about committing to a retained, long-term campaign, before seeing the ROI.

We agreed some tactical targeting of key brands (who do spend £100k plus) and discussed how we help nurture and cement relationships with prospects over time. As the agency work predominantly in the food and beverage industry, they were keen to get more work with blue chip organisations in this space. We were able to demonstrate that we have robust, accurate data resources to identify the right kind of contact and decision maker, but also have the processes in place and the right knowledge and approach to help target this audience properly. An initial 3 month pilot has resulted in a long term successful campaign, delivering real opportunities with key companies.


Positive interactions with decision makers




We have a great relationship with Alchemis. We have worked closely together for over 7 years and have been consistently getting in front of some major brands that are now long-term clients. It’s a real partnership, from our Account Manager who gets us, to how we manage and nurture leads together. The quality of the notes for each lead are superb, demonstrating the depth of the conversations and engagement with prospects and critically providing a solid agenda for each meeting. All the way they help us maximise each and every opportunity….. it works!
