THE fast paced world of digital media has seen York agency Pick & Mix Marketing earn a reputation for staying ahead curve.

Entering the Small Business of the Year award, Pick & Mix Marketing has been successfully delivering social media and marketing support to local businesses for almost seven years in York.

The business has grown in terms of both client numbers and turnover since setting up and has now established a successful position as one of York’s leading social media marketing agencies, maintaining on average 25 happy clients per month.

Pick & Mix Marketing was developed around the core belief that delivering a flexible, high quality, creative, can-do, personal service, can help to achieve great outcomes for all sizes of business.

The team’s agile approach has gained them a valued, established, reputation in the city, and they consistently go over and above to remain up to date with the latest trends - regularly forecasting the next “big thing” in the world of marketing and social media.

The team understand the challenges faced by businesses – lack of time, lack of knowledge, lack of interest, so they take these pressures away by providing a fully integrated marketing service, which offers clients a reliable solution.

The team, based in offices in Hospital Fields Road, are all qualified CIM Marketers, and the business consistently provides team training opportunities.

During 2017, the company invested heavily with team training which incorporated communication and leadership skills development.

Pick & Mix Marketing evolves with the fast-paced changes of digital media and therefore there is always potential for growth. The team work alongside a collective of freelancers which allows more flexibility to keep up with the ever-changing digital landscape.
