NOW in its eighth year, Pick & Mix Marketing has developed around the core belief that a flexible and high-quality marketing and social media service can help Yorkshire business of all sizes achieve great outcomes.

The business has put this into practice with a strategy of sharing its expertise both online and offline while partnering with clients in long-lasting relationships.

Because of this commitment to collaboration, the business finds it is often recommended throughout York and beyond, and is the running for Small Business of the Year award.

They say: “In partnering with clients, we use an agile and creative approach to make their marketing campaigns stand out.

"We have a valued reputation in York for consistently going above and beyond.

"This was recognised in our shortlisting for Tourism Supplier of the Year at the Visit York Tourism Awards.

“We empower our team too. From our managing director becoming a chartered marketer, to new members gaining responsibility fast, we’re driven to continue developing.

“To keep us motivated, we enjoy 4pm finishes on Fridays, birthdays off and quarterly team treats. We’ve also recently invested in our new premise at Northminster Business Park, which provides ample room for training and consultancy sessions in a space we can be proud of.

“Our values of working together, being honest, ambitious and inspiring underpin our approach.

"We recently distilled these in a team-development day with a York-based coach and have since consolidated them in a three-year growth plan.

“Working together, our clients know they can contact us anytime and rely on us to deliver amazing results.

“Our investment in a new CRM system will improve our communication even more.”
