When we started helping the Welsh Wizards in Cardiff, part of the brief was to assist with match nights and how to engage the audience with the team, online and offline. As well as creating the hashtag #WelshWizards for fans to follow on Instagram and Twitter, we also created the very popular Instagram stickers as well as marketing material for the team to display at the venue. We also created a match night programme, a keep sake for fans who attend the home matches and perfe
Designing marketing material is great fun, bringing a brand to life and seeing it in the flesh is amazing, not only seeing digital ads or websites go live but seeing our design in print in the hands of clients or their customers is also a great feeling.

It's Friday morning, and before I head off to a meeting I take a look at my social media analytics, I try and do this detailed look every week but haven't seen the stats in detail for over 10 days now.... It's good news, all the stats are green, we're up on interaction and engagement and our video views are up too, that and a couple of extra likes and followers. One thing I do look at when I'm on the Red Squirrel Marketing Facebook business page analytics is 'Pages to Watch',
We love the idea of QR codes, you know those little boxes of millions of squares to make unique images that direct you to your chosen URL. Well if you didn't know what they were then you do now and we are sure you've seen them around. Some use them in their marketing content in print and online, they are used to make life easier to find specific links but it was always a fuss because you had to download an app, take a pic of the code and then find the URL.
