marketing agency liverpool David Roberts

David Roberts

Director – Head of Strategy

What do you enjoy about your role at Yellow? 
Being able to take an idea that was once scribbled on a piece of paper and turn it into a fully realised marketing campaign which turns the idea into customers for our clients.

If you were going to give one piece of marketing advice what would it be? 
Concentrate on what you do differently to the competition. What they can’t do. That is what makes people decide you are the supplier for them. If everyone says the same thing, customers just look for the cheapest option.

What do you enjoy about your role at Yellow? 
I love getting to know peoples businesses. Over the years we’ve worked with businesses big and small in a range of industries and I love becoming part of the team.

If you were going to give one piece of marketing advice what would it be? 
Use VIDEO! If you’re not using it, you’re already behind the competition.  Start small with videos made with your own phone then progress to a professional outfit (like Yellow) to produce something spectacular!

marketing agency liverpool Scott Bishop

Scott Bishop

Director – Head of Post Production

What do you enjoy about your role at Yellow? 
The creativity and day-to-day learning. The days of simply setting up an advert and watching the money stream in are over, and the advertising world has become far more competitive.  This means you have to be more creative each and every day to keep your audiences’ attention.

If you were going to give one piece of marketing advice what would it be? 
Track EVERYTHING! There’s no sense in spending money on marketing material when you can’t see whether or not it’s working.  

Favourite movie quote: 
“Mr. Madison what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I’ve ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points… and may God have mercy on your soul” – The Principle, Billy Madison

Jenny Dawson

Head of Marketing

What do you enjoy about your role at Yellow? 
Watching and helping the team grow. It’s exciting to see how Yellow is growing fast and being able to produce more and more exciting projects for our clients.

If you were going to give one piece of marketing advice what would it be? 
Don’t be fixated on bringing in new customers. Do you need more customers or more business? If you need more business, do marketing to your current customers first as they already trust you – making it ten times easier/cheaper to get business from them, rather than strangers.

Marketing Executive

What do you enjoy about your role at Yellow? 
The diversity in my role and the clients I work with. No two days are the same. We all work together as a team so I am able to get involved with a variety of businesses and their campaigns in addition to my own clients.

If you were going to give one piece of marketing advice what would it be? 
The customer journey can vary for each specific business, focus on where your customers/target market are and work to deliver the right message to them at the right time. Some may have never heard of your brand; others may have just purchased from you. Each of these customers are at various stages of the funnel and so the same medium/message will not apply to both.
