Purpose Media wins Marketing Derby video brief

Creative agency Purpose Media has been appointed to provide a year’s worth of video marketing support to inward investment and place promotion organisation Marketing Derby.

The Derbyshire firm will work closely with Marketing Derby throughout 2019, with a view to creating key promotional films aimed at showcasing Derby and Derbyshire to potential investors and businesses, and also highlighting the work it does to promote the city and county.

As part of the contract, Purpose Media will provide full strategic consultancy and creative support to help shape the messaging that sells Derby and Derbyshire in the best light, as well as supporting with the activation and distribution of the films across a range of marketing channels, including online, at events and on social media.

Purpose Media was awarded the contract following a competitive tender process, culminating in a successful two-way pitch, at which it had to demonstrate its understanding of Marketing Derby’s key objectives for the films, the audience personas that they would be aimed at, and its creative ideas for executing the brief.

Katrina Starkie, Marketing Director at Purpose Media, said: “As a local company – and a long-standing Marketing Derby Bondholder – we’re delighted to be working on this project together. We are fiercely proud of our roots and we’re always up for doing anything we can to help put Derby on the map.

“Marketing performs better when it works together and the key to the success of this project will be working collaboratively with the team at Marketing Derby to lend our creative expertise and technical know-how to this exciting initiative, to ensure we can achieve more, together.”

John Forkin, Managing Director at Marketing Derby, added: “fDi Intelligence, a service from the Financial Times, has just recognised Marketing Derby as having the best digital strategy of any global investment promotion agency.

“During 2019 Marketing Derby plans to step up our activity and in this context, we are working with Purpose Media to enhance our digital offering.

“These films will be key tools for us to promote the city and county as a great place to invest as well as to live, work and visit.”
