I would absolutely recommend The Marketing Department to anyone starting up a new business. I would have been completely lost launching My Fairy Pawmother without them. Their friendly and professional service has given me confidence in my business decisions. They’ve helped me with website and social media set up and launch, guided me through ordering business cards and leaflets, and has given my brand the design boost it needed to make me really stand out from the crowd. Any time I have been in touch, I’ve had a response within half an hour and all services have been done quickly and to a really high standard.
