Client - Version Two

Growth channel - Sales

Delivered by - Gary and Alex

Overview

We recently validated a market and generated £100k+ MRR for Version Two into the US/Canada from cold. They’d never had a client there before. It all started with market research and building them a new asset (contact database) before leveraging their best evidence from UK clients, backed up by hard data, and relating it to the prospects market.

    Expansion Into other geos from the UK

In their words

“With Version Two, a successful UK centric business, we wanted a team to help us expand into the US/Canada. I knew the team at Facets and had a feeling that because of their backgrounds, they gave us the best chance of success. Feeding solid commercial opportunities into our Sales Director to close was an obvious fit and we’ve been really pleased with the results."

JOE WILLIAMS

FOUNDER, MD

In our words

“We used an ‘approval process’ to get the prospects selling to us, rather than seeming wide open. This moved the power balance and allowed us to negotiate fair rates. It all started with research and leveraging the great work V2 had already done so we could identify the doors to knock on, get our foot in, and then we had prospects welcome us in."

Client - Joan Allen Metal Detectors

Growth channel - Marketing

Delivered by - Pete and Natalie

Overview

Facets started working with Joan Allen at the start of the year after poor festive results and some serious SEO challenges. Indentifying possibilities in Paid Search, Social and other channels and working closely with development teams for SEO issues; we turned around the decline in a challenging market to see some of their best monthly revenues.

Project Highlights

  • Plus Icon

    161% rise in annual SEO traffic

  • Arrow Up Icon

    322% rise in Paid Search revenues

  • Arrow Pointer Icon

    New launches into Social, Amazon and more

In their words

"Overwhelming happy with how things are going. A deep knowledge that is readily available to us, giving us a better understanding of our business and what makes it work from a marketing standpoint. Hiring full time isn’t really necessary, not with the support we receive via Facets. A steady improvement across the board on sales but more importantly a cease in the decline of our organic SEO. Commitment from the team is always on point, very rarely are they unavailable. The Marketing team are always inspiring confidence in that there are issues but they are being taken care of. And not only that, the rationale is always explained and in a manner that is easy to digest for us. What is really interesting is the new potential initiatives being forward to us by by Facets, allowing to tap into potential markets and revenue streams that wouldn’t have been readily available to us ordinarily. I look forward to working together more on this in the future!"

LUKE MAHONEY

CEO

In our words

“Joan Allen has been an amazing team to work with and are very receptive to the ideas of the entire Marketing team the same as if we were full-time employees, which is really the secret to the Facets model. They understood our model means we are on their side with no other interests at play. We believe that solid growth rests on solid foundations and so we used our analytical skills to fix tracking, build a baseline of where they were and from that we could formulate a strategy. Obviously channels such as SEO and Paid media are a key component for an eCommerce brand like Joan Allen, but we also added to the strategy brand support with a new website launch and more. The results have been speaking for themselves."

CHIEF MARKETING OFFICER

Client - Brawl Agency

Growth channel - Talent

Delivered by - Sam

Overview

Brawl Directors do everything for their business, including the end to end recruitment process. Facets found a cost effective way to remove that process from their day to day to help a growing business headhunt the right people for the company, who had to be in the office five days per week.

Project Highlights

  • Plus Icon

    Three new brilliant people found

  • Arrow Up Icon

    Two week start search to signed candidate

  • Arrow Pointer Icon

    Small % of salary spread over 6months

In their words

“Brodie and I had a huge challenge to find new people for the business whilst we did everything else, it needed someone dedicated to it. Having worked with Facets in other growth areas, we wanted to explore their Talent division and it has become a great fit for us. We’d never liked traditional recruitment models previously, but this is so different that it’s made the candidate experience pull people to us rather than them feel like a number"

MARTIN JONES

MANAGING PARTNER

In our words

“Working with Brawl has been exciting and challenging. Their requirements of level of employee, cost per head and days in the office make the brief not straightforward. The attraction of the company, its work and Martin & Brodie make the business a sellable product and I have been able to match the company culture easily which has shone through when speaking to candidates. I think we know every person in Yorkshire who’s right for Brawl!"

MATT SHERWEN

MANAGING DIRECTOR

In our words

“Sherwen has been a great partner, giving the business time to mature externally whilst working with us on internal people growth. What Pete, Sam and I have allowed Sherwen to do is focus on client and people development, three year contracts with some huge retailers have been achieved whilst the business goes through building the foundations needed for a sales and marketing push in 2023 "
