Who we are

The multi-service marketing agency.

We specialise in the automotive, hospitality and local business sectors.

Established in 2000 by Managing Director Nick Hill Big Marketing has grown from an enthusiastic but not-that-big agency (just Nick in fact) into an advertising and marketing service that’s second to none, staffed by a thirty-strong multidisciplinary team of individuals working together to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations.

Big’s growth has been swift yet organic, increasing the number of services offered by adding specialist team members – recruiting experienced sector leaders, online marketing experts, knowledgeable developers, talented designers and writers.

We’ve now reached the stage where as an integrated creative agency we can offer our clients a multitude of valuable services, built on a pedigree of success in delivering results. This success is down to four key strengths, the values that define Big Marketing: speed, quality, experience and realism.

Specialist areas

Traditional marketing – Digital marketing – Creative design

What this means to you

These four core values ensure you’re provided with the level of service that gets results. The methods and behaviours that underpin each of these values illustrate Big Marketing’s philosophy.

What others say

We always like to impress

We have developed a great partnership with Big Marketing as they consistently go ‘above & beyond’ just the basics. Their understanding of our business is second-to-none and has resulted in a sizeable increase in business across all departments. We love their creative approach to problems – they don’t just tick boxes but come up with fresh & novel solutions. Equally, they are just as competent at doing the ‘bread & butter’ stuff. One of their biggest strengths is undoubtedly their speed – they’re able to turn around most jobs very quickly and haven’t yet missed one of our often unreasonably short deadlines! As they have surpassed expectations and we look forward to continue to working together for a long time.

Jason Smith, Operations Director, Now Vauxhall
Nick and the team at Big Marketing managed our project excellently. The designs presented were exactly to brief, amendments were made quickly in the final piece looked better than I could have imagined. The project was finished in excellent time and the mailer they created helped up launch a new car successfully.

Alan Day have found the Big Marketing team to be extremely friendly and efficient.
They always deliver on time and at the right price, they are the best at what they do and are always looking for ways to push the boundaries.
We are excited see the Alan Day brand evolve under the influence of Big Marketing and looking forward to a long and prosperous partnership with them.

Paul Tanner, Managing Director , Alan Day

Working in the automotive industry is very fast paced and having an agency who can work at that pace is essential. We had an issue with levels of stock and after a discussion with Big we decided to create a website that would solely advertise these cars. Big followed the brief to the letter creating the websites in the correct manufacturer CI and were able to turn it around within a matter of days. These websites gave us more flexibility than our manufacturer sites and we could then promote this via several different digital channels via Big to generate the leads we required.

Derek McQueen - Managing Director, Charters Group

We have found Big Marketing to be extremely easy to work with.   They are friendly and helpful and with their extensive knowledge of the latest marketing developments they have brought us many ideas to take our company promotions to the next level.

Lee Monahan - Director, Crown Honda

Since choosing Big Marketing to manage my campaign, Nick and his team have not only demonstrated their extensive knowledge of the marketing industry but exceeded my expectations with their friendly, professional approach. In just two weeks I saw a noticeable difference in the volume of enquiries I was receiving. A fantastic company that act swiftly, pay attention to detail and get results. I couldn’t be happier.

Kathryn Hunter - Director, Hawkmoth Property Consultants Ltd

We have had our site built by Big as we had previously been with a provider who offered little or no service or functionality. Adam and his team have been so thorough and knowledgeable. We have had our site created and it covers the brief we originally gave and looks amazing. The bugs we encountered have all been picked up and dealt with, usually within minutes. It’s been a very good experience and I look forward to developing and improving our site as we go.

Thank you for all your hard work to date and I look forward to working with the team to keep our site at the top.

David Charlson, Dealer Principle, Romford Kia

From the very start it was obvious that we had chosen the right agency for our business. Big Marketing certainly has the ideas, the enthusiasm and the dedication to work with Perrys. No job was too small or too big and no deadline was too tight – they went the extra mile every time and made our lives so much easier. I have peace of mind knowing that if I handed a campaign to Big that they would deliver, on time and within budget. Big Marketing is great to work with, from directors to designers and developers. They are quite honestly part of our team.
