Your brand is your business. It is what you are, who you are and what your entire reputation depends upon. And for a great brand to resonate, engage and remain in the hearts and minds of its intended audience, it needs to be constantly monitored, especially in a digital world that’s constantly evolving.

So, to really get to know your brand, Jellyfish will organize brand immersion days where it meet you and your team, and talk to your customers on and offline.

Jellyfish will study the competition, analyze your search metrics, critique your social media presence and audit your website for conversions. It will look at everything from color to logos, fonts to imagery, and taglines to the tone of voice. Then will present Jellyfish’s findings. It will talk through its concepts, and the figures and the timelines of how it can take your brand to where you want it to go.

Jellyfish’s Brand Strategy & Positioning

A successful online brand strategy is built around three key components:

  • A clearly articulated business strategy with a view of the scale and scope of the business and how you plan to compete.
  • Deep customer insights and an understanding of the evolving nature of your target market, as well as the online demand and competition.
  • A clear picture of the role of your brand which will shape its strategic decisions during the brand development process.

Jellyfish’s Brand Messaging & Proposition

How do Jellyfish communicate who you are and what you do? By making it completely clear to your market, prospects, partners, suppliers and internal staff. To do this, it will review your history, current standing and brand offering. It will examine every part of your company so it can take an external, objective view of how you’re communicating this. 

Then Jellyfish will get to work to determine who you are as a brand and what your audience wants to hear, and then build out your brand messaging and proposition in the most innovative, efficient and cost-effective way possible.

Campaign Creative

A great campaign can be a game-changer for your brand. It can take it to another level and drives sales, increases site/search traffic and set a new benchmark for future creations. It generates PR, gets social sharing and pushes your message to a wider audience and across more markets.

It’s also one of the very few communication platforms that give you the chance to talk in a way you haven’t before. These longer forms of communication and messaging create deeper, longer lasting engagement - so more people see you, understand you and develop a relationship with you. Jellyfish creative experience, visual flair, and proven communication skills begin by defining the unique central theme to your campaign. This overarching concept leads the creative direction for all its marketing services to create a powerful and fully integrated marketing communication that can run for days, weeks or months.

Words from the Chief

“Hi, my name is Rob Pierre and I'm the CEO at Jellyfish. I'm also an incredible husband (just to get a reaction from my wife), proud father, 'wannabe' photographer and frustrated golfer.

The Jellyfish story began in 2005 when I joined Paul Walsh and we set upon our journey to transform a boutique IT consultancy in Reigate into a global digital marketing agency. I'm proud to say we now have over 420 ambitious and talented people working across nine offices in the UK, US, Spain, and South Africa. 

I've always believed that more is lost from indecision than wrong decisions and as a result, we've managed to create an environment where people are encouraged to challenge process and innovate. This culture has cultivated a highly motivated team with an open approach where anyone can share their thoughts and ideas freely.

Today, my goal is to grow Jellyfish into the biggest boutique agency in the world, a vision that is already being brought to life.”
