Today we’re in sunny England meeting Richard, Managing Partner at RFS Marketing & Communications Ltd. Richard & RFS have been using Bark since 2017.
The team at RFS help private companies and charities of all shapes and sizes grow their business through social media marketing, website development, paid social media advertising, email marketing, and search engine optimisation – businesses supporting businesses, that’s what we like to hear!
But how has Bark helped Richard to grow his business? Let’s find out…
Tell us a bit about your company and what you do
We are a digital marketing agency based in the UK. We support businesses and charities with website development, social media marketing, paid social media advertising, email marketing and search engine optimisation (SEO).
What you were doing before you launched your business?
I was a board-level director at a leading UK behaviour change consultancy, creating a positive impact through person-centred design.
What made you take the leap to start your own business?
I was really motivated (and still am!) by helping businesses to grow through the use of innovative digital marketing. So I put this into action, using my extensive experience in digital communications to set up RFS.
What made you join Bark?
We joined in 2017 as a way of identifying potential leads in a crowded market place.
Tell us about your experiences on Bark…
To date, Bark has delivered us an incredible 2343.4% return on investment for our company!
What’s the best thing about Bark?
There are dozens of leads in our niche delivered to our inboxes every day, with enough information to allow us to make an informed decision about whether or not to pursue each lead.
What are your top tips for success on Bark?
When you identify a good potential lead, get in touch with them immediately and don’t be surprised to have to call and email several times. Don’t expect them to get back to you, even if they specifically asked you to get in contact.
How helpful have you found our Customer Success team?
Very. Whenever there has been an issue (which has been hardly ever) they’ve responded immediately to resolve it.
How has Bark supported you during the coronavirus pandemic?
The pandemic has largely been business as usual for us, if anything there’s been a greater demand for digital marketing support as more consumers needed to go online, and new startups requiring websites and social media campaigns have emerged.
We’re proud to support the team at RFS Communications, an incredibly talented bunch who continue to support businesses grow and thrive through digital marketing.
