Supporting SME Start-ups

According to a study by O2, this is the most popular time of year to start a new business in the UK.

The research showed 581,000 new businesses were launched last year, setting a new record, and 4,800 of those new starts were on August 28.

Most of these new starts will fall into the SME category. Many will be lifestyle businesses, while others will have high-growth potential and ambitious plans for expansion and internationalisation from the word go.

Looking comprehensively at PR and marketing from the outset can reap benefits quickly. The think team has supported a wide range of start-ups, providing tailored support to a number of oil and gas firms including Flexlife, a past fastest growing company in Scotland and multi-award winner, and Coretrax, another rapidly expanding, multi-award winner.

Our experienced team of PR and marketing specialists establish just what support is really needed, and customise our service accordingly. From identifying your market (whether that’s the North Sea, Middle East, Asia Pac etc., or subsea, decommissioning etc.) and customers, to working out the best ways to bring your product or service before them. Whatever your needs, we offer a bespoke and cost-effective approach.

For many, the first step is a website, and our ThinkCreative team is on hand to deliver. Others will turn to traditional and social media to build their brand, with our PR and marketing specialists available to support.

Once through the start-up stage, it can be the perfect time to take stock of how you’re selling your products and services with a fresh pair of eyes – we can help you see the bigger picture
