Lightbox undergo a major transformation, and it doesn’t stop there…
By Dion Fanthom
We've undergone a major transformation and we wanted to write a blog post explaining exactly what's going on here at Lightbox. You may have noticed that we've got a brand new website which we have worked hard on over the past few months. We've enhanced our online presence because we have grown... not only as a team but as a business.
The past 12 months has seen the Lightbox team double in size, have a mini makeover in our Birmingham office, expand to a London office and transform into a full Digital Agency. This now means that we can now completely re-imagine your digital offering and put your brand, products and services in front of your customer through the delivery of a robust digital marketing strategy.
During our 10 years in business, we’ve worked on projects that have transformed and enhanced the digital presence of many small to medium businesses. Our drive and dedication for elevating the online presence of clients is what has encouraged our next step within the industry; we have grown to offer an array of services making us a full Digital Agency, with experience in all areas of e-commerce and web development as well as being passionate about running bespoke campaigns across a range of marketing mediums including Remarketing, Social Media Marketing, Email Marketing and many more; see below for all of the new services we now offer under Marketing…
Our transformation has made us aware of the growing demand for accessibility and that’s why we’ve expanded our presence to a London office which means we can reach even more potential clients, aiding in the growth of their businesses. With two physical touch points, we are repositioning ourselves in order to reach even more people who want to elevate their digital presence.
Our growing team means that we can not only offer additional services but also, we can broaden our location scope. Our client portfolio is ever growing and we believe offering our clients a place in the capital to meet, catch up or even just go for a drink will benefit our relationships and help with project progress amongst clients, through a more accessible touch point.
The Lightbox Team
We’ve always been proud of the team we have here at Lightbox, we’re a passionate, diverse group of individuals who really strive to get the best for not only ourselves but for every single one of our clients. That’s no different now that we’ve doubled in size, we are still a friendly and welcoming group of talented individuals who are always eager to work with clients on exciting new projects. We thought we’d introduce ourselves so you can get to know us all as individuals; the Lightbox family is made up of a group of intriguing and unique personalities and we want to show that off wherever possible.
