About

In a busy digital world it can be easy to feel like you’re just another business doing exactly the same thing as everyone else. But here’s the thing: you are the only business that does what you do exactly the way that you do it. Telling your brand story is all about letting that talent, personality, and perspective shine through - and we are here to help you achieve it.

Meet Katy

Katy: With a 15 year career working with the Buying teams of many of the UK High Street’s biggest Retailers behind me, I had the sense that I wasn’t using my real skills. Watching the fast-growing digital economy and growth of the independent business I embarked on an intensive period of retraining in Social Media, created a popular community blog, and worked collaboratively with small businesses. Passion turned into purpose as I’d developed the skills of compelling content creation, creative writing, community development and online strategy, and was able to apply these to promoting businesses successfully. Working in partnership with businesses to transform their online presence and tell their business story is still the biggest thrill.

Matt: I have been running a successful freelance photography business for almost 8 years, but also have an interest in web design - something I had been doing on the side without realising for almost a decade. After meeting Katy I found someone who inspired me to push my skills together and to tackle a collaborative project that would build on Katy's popular social media campaign and make a difference to the local community. Katy's ability find stories in the everyday, and her online voice and story-telling have been a major driving force for the success of Tring Buzz, and I am proud to provide the 'techie' side of the business through professional photography and web design. 

About

Matt: Ten years ago I left a career in medical research behind to start my own photography business. Self-taught with a camera, but with a grasp for both the business and the technical side of things, I learnt to code my own websites, gain an in-depth knowledge of photoshop and graphic design software, market myself, and build my business rapidly from the ground up. Although I occasionally built websites for others, it wasn’t until I met Katy that I was inspired to pull together my expertise and take them in a new direction. Having a strong creative eye for detail, but also the technical skills to create, I have found that I approach web design differently from many developers, helping me to create websites that stand out from competitors.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

You may not think you have any great stories to tell or that the industry you are in is particularly exciting - but every business has it's own unique narrative, and there are stories to be found everywhere - and we are here to help. So whether its a story of why you started, a behind-the-scenes look at products in the making, or simply the inside scoop on the office dog - story-telling gives your business its own unique personality, a chance to stand out from competitors, and - most importantly - helps people connect with your brand.

01

Everyone has a story to tell

Beautiful visuals will elevate your business

Having professional photography or video can be one of the best things you can do for your business - creating beautiful, eye-catching visuals that can transform your brand and take it to new heights. Great story-telling visuals also help you connect with your audience and can be a major part of communicating your brand story - from the people behind the business, to the care and attention you put into the skills of your craft.

02

Collaboration gives you freedom

Wearing the many hats required to run a small business can sometimes feel like you have no time to focus on what the business is actually about, diluting creativity or stopping you from pushing your business forward in the way that you planned. We believe outsourcing not only puts specific parts of your business in the hands of pros who can make a real difference, but importantly gives you your freedom back to focus on crafting the business you always envisaged.

03

It doesn't have to cost the earth

It can be easy to spend money on your business in the wrong ways - from costly advertising regrets (we've all been there!) to simply not spending enough where it matters. We want to help you invest wisely in ways that will make the most impact for your brand. That's why we offer a range of services and package options that let's you pick exactly what aspects of our expertise you need the most - whether that's to focus on specific features of your business as budget permits, or to create a bespoke package that provides an all-round solution.
