About Creative Marketing

Our Story

Creative Marketing, established in 1996, is an independent marketing agency with real business smarts. Based in Hastings, Hawke’s Bay, we have clients across the country and world. Distance is no barrier - wherever you are, we'll come to you.

Nothing is more exciting to us than taking a new (or established) concept and turning it into a viable, successful enterprise. We bring together our people working in strategy, design and digital to share insights and formulate strategies that will make your business or organisation grow.

We’ve helped others grow from a fledgling idea to a successful company – or given their established business the kick in the pants it needs. No matter whether you're a startup, challenger, or brand leader we’ll work with you to get results.

We’ll work hard to build loyal relationships for the long term – we believe this achieves better results than short term flings.

Charging

At Creative we're straight up about everything we do and that extends to our charging. We have an in-house system that tracks the time our people spend on projects. Changes to projects' scope and budgets may incur additional costs. Margins are added to all external supplier costs to cover management time and our responsibility to quality control work.

Initial meetings are free of charge but from that point on, any work undertaken is chargeable, even if the work is not used. We also charge project management fees and take a commission on any media booked through us.

We would be pleased to offer you a special contract rate in the form of a written agreement if you commit your marketing budget to us exclusively. That means we'll need you to sign on a dotted line and say Creative Marketing are awesome.

Our Philosophy

We’re all about building an open and honest relationship with you to deliver projects that help achieve your business goals. Our clients love the way we work and we know you will too. Here’s our five main philosophies in a nutshell:

If we’re going to do something, we make sure it’s done well. We look at our clients’ overall business objectives and generate innovative ideas that will help achieve your goals.
There’s nothing that fires us up more than delivering great work that gets results. We aim to deliver 110% magic on each and every project, no matter how large or small.

“The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.” - Steve Jobs

We love creating, designing and delivering innovative solutions that work. It’s as simple as that.
We believe in clear communication in order to ensure no detail is ‘lost in translation’. Costs will be agreed in advance so there are no surprises. We’ll listen carefully and will talk with you directly and frequently so that you are always up to date and can make informed decisions.
Our team of skilled individuals will work together to understand your project before pursuing your goals with a unified purpose. Working together means we’ll achieve higher quality outcomes for you.

Zero Obligation Workshop

We offer an initial 1-2 hour workshop session in order for us to understand the scope of your project, generate innovative ideas that meet the needs of your customers and business, and formulate a plan to move forward.

It’s a chance for you to sound us out, get a feel for how we work, and walk away fired up with a fresh perspective on your project. With this understanding of your project we'll be able to offer you our initial ideas and a ball park cost.

We’re confident you’ll see value in the way we work which is why we offer this no obligation experience.

Contact us and book your workshop today.
