There is no denying that 2020 was a difficult year and unfortunately it seems that in 2021 things will not be returning to normal as soon as we all hoped.
Here at the Inspiration Agency a lot happened in 2020; we pivoted to become a fully Virtual Agency, we took on new staff members and we introduced new processes and systems to support our clients. We also supported many clients with their marketing in order to grow their businesses, even in such a tricky climate.
We thought it would be nice (and quite uplifting) to look back at some of those projects.
We pitched for and won the Museum of East Dorset (previously the Priest House Museum in Wimborne) as a client in early 2020 (pre-Covid). We were so pleased to have been chosen as history is a real interest for us and we LOVE a good museum. The project was to rebrand the newly refurbished museum and create deliverables such as;
Here are a selection of the finished results.
We have worked with the Venue Salon since they launched their first salon back in 2016 and in fact worked with Salon Director Emily on her previous beauty business as far back as 2012. Never one to rest on her laurels Emily chose 2020 as the year to launch her second Venue in Westbourne and wasn’t going to let something like a Global Pandemic put her off!
We supported Emily and her team with the launch including;
We are in the progress of creating a ‘Venue Magazine’ and are looking forward to rolling that out in 2021!
Here are a selection of the finished results and what Salon Director Emily Dillon had to say about our work:
“As my business has grown, the Inspiration Agency have been able to support me with cost effective marketing solutions in all areas. The Inspiration Agency are really creative and I always love their designs, but they are also really efficient. Nothing gets forgotten and tight deadlines are never a problem.”
We met Tracey Beesley, founder of the Lifestyle Concept at a networking event in February 2020 – remember when you could actually go out and meet people! Tracey offers decluttering services and had been running her business for several years, but had found marketing return on investment to be ‘patchy’. Some things she had been advised to do had worked, but others had cost a lot, but not delivered the results she needed.
After a consultation we recommended a marketing strategy that we KNEW would deliver. Unfortunately for Tracey some of our suggestions meant undoing or redoing things she already had in place, but you’ll be happy to hear that it worked and Tracey told us in September last year that she had ‘never been busier’ and that enquiries were ‘flooding in’. Here are some of the things we did for the Lifestyle Concept in 2020;
Here are a selection of the finished results and what Tracey had to say about our work:
“I feel like I have turned a massive corner with my business, in just a short period. My website is now firing on all cylinders, with great SEO, my social media is now in line and getting a lot more engagement than previously. The Inspiration Agency ‘gets’ my brand and is always coming up with new and inventive ideas to grow my business.”
ConnectUp is a slightly revolutionary business founded by Jo Hompstead, the idea being that as humans we all need Connection! I think that after last year, we would all agree with that! ConnectUp uses this guiding principle to help business people in a number of ways; with a monthly virtual event #ConnectUp, with 1-2-1 sessions and with group coaching and development programmes.
ConnectUp needed the basics to get up and running with their marketing, so we delivered;

“I can’t recommend the Inspiration Agency highly enough. They are curious and incisive – helping you determine exactly what you need, the look and feel requirements of your brand, and the right choices for your customer base.”
I think it’s fairly obvious what Teresa does…she is a HR Consultant. Teresa wanted to make the most of her connections and grow her business in 2020. We supported Teresa with;
Here are a selection of the finished results and what Teresa had to say about our work:
“The Inspiration Agency recently created a wonderful website for my business and has gone on to help me with social media and posts to raise the profile of my business. I found the whole experience wonderful as they guided me through it all. The team listened very carefully and captured my personality on the website.”
Your Cosmetic Clinic (YCC) is aesthetic clinic based in Salisbury offering a range of clinical treatments such as dermal fillers and botox. The owner Marie approached us to work with them on their social media. YCC had tried various people and agencies to manage their social media, but never got the results they wanted.
We knew we could get their social media working for them, but in addition we also recommended some additional marketing strategies, we;
Here are a selection of the finished results and what Marie had to say about our work:
“It has been a pleasure working with the Inspiration Agency team. I wanted their help to raise the Clinic’s profile and the work they have done has been outstanding. Our social media engagement is up, website visitors are up and most importantly enquiries are up!”
So that’s it for now….maybe you recognised some of the people and businesses we featured in this blog….if you think your business needs similar help in 2021 get in touch and maybe you can be in next year’s retrospective commenting on how much your profile has been raised and how many new enquiries you have had!
We'd love to chat to you about your marketing needs
