Company News, Events

Our web design and digital marketing agency in Exeter celebrated 10 years of establishment on July 19th with an all day event at our offices! The Media Street team were ecstatic to see clients, friends and family members from far and wide at the event.

We set out to host an event that would celebrate this special landmark in the history of Media Street and allow us to get to know our clients and local business owners on a personal level. Through taking the necessary steps in the planning process – creating an engaging agenda for the day, giving attendees plenty of notice and promoting the event to businesses – we were able to bring people together for a day of fun-filled engagement.

The event was just as much about teaching attendees about the industry we enjoy working in, and sharing our visions for where the digital world is headed, than it was to celebrate this landmark year for Media Street. With this in mind, our 10 Year Anniversary was a resounding success, as the Media Street team delivered group presentations on wide-ranging subject matters, held individual 1:1 workshops and organised a selection of activities, food & drink that was enjoyed by all!  

There was an abundance of intriguing conversations in between our industry focused talks and workshops, and never a dull moment with classic fun fair themed games such as Splat the Rat, Hook a Duck and Tin Can Alley running all day. Our commemorative 10 Year Anniversary Cakes certainly hit the spot too.

Rather predictably, the weather didn’t exactly play ball, however, that didn’t stop guests from challenging each other to our outdoor activities!

Insightful Industry Focused Group Presentations

Our Exeter SEO, marketing and web development specialists prepared detailed 15-minute group presentations and delivered them to engrossed audiences throughout the day. Here, we outline each of the talks and the key points from each:

  • The Do’s And Don’ts Of Marketing – Our Marketing Manager, Grace, outlined some of the common mistakes to be aware of and some of the best practices to follow.

1:1 Workshops from our Devon Web Design & Marketing Heads

Not only did we deliver incisive and informative group presentations at our 10 Year Anniversary Event, but we sat down with existing and prospective clients to assess discuss their marketing and web design. Our web design experts analysed websites and outlined how they could be improved to attract more visitors and keep them on the site for longer with an enhanced user experience. 

Meanwhile, during our 1:1 marketing workshop slots, we delivered advice in the areas that had been earmarked by ourselves or business owners as one that can be improved. For example, we took a look at the Adwords campaigns of certain businesses and evaluated if budgets were being distributed to the right areas. With others, we looked at their current SEO efforts and if they should be doing more.

Naturally, our team adjusted to each business accordingly while assessing if their on-site and off-site SEO could be improved. Among other things, we questioned whether there any keyword opportunities currently being missed, if there are sufficient internal links across pages and if there are enough quality backlinks pointing to their website.

In addition, we also looked at organisations’ social media pages, discussed how we could help grow audiences organically and reinforced the impact that paid social media advertising could have in generating more leads, thereby improving sales figures.
