Juicy Marketing Logo

Juicy is a Hampshire-based, integrated marketing agency specialising primarily in technology based brands.

So what’s an ‘integrated agency’ and why does it matter?

Put simply, it means Juicy has the resources, knowledge and experience to deliver all your marketing needs, under one roof.

Modern marketing is complex; it’s fuelled the growth of single-service agencies (digital, web, etc.,) which leads to you ‘wrangling’ multiple suppliers in the hope you can make it all work together.

But at Juicy, our team has the knowledge and expertise to implement different strategies and tactics, fully co-ordinated to ensure your marketing delivers the right impressions and messages, at the right time, to the right target audiences.

Our integrated approach…

  • Saves you time: so you can concentrate on other business issues
  • Increases your ‘reach’: a full range of techniques maximises impact and effectiveness
  • Helps you avoid pitfalls: get it wrong and you’re wasting your money: simple as that!
  • Saves you money: compared to sourcing and managing multiple suppliers

We can even be your complete Outsourced Marketing Department… which means you tap-into over 25 years’ experience of marketing technology companies, from exciting start-ups to corporate multi-nationals.

The magic is in the mix: your marketing mix! So why use just one or two techniques when you can have a whole box full?
