Harris Consultancy Partnership


Read all about our partnership with Harris Consultancy

As the old saying goes, “two heads are better than one’, so when award winning, Digital Marketing Agency, Harris Consultancy approached Look Local Magazine with an idea of working alongside one another, the publication owner was keen to meet. 

The vision was to pool both organisations expertise together to help educate local businesses in the importance of linking both traditional offline methods of marketing communication with the ever-evolving world of digital marketing and social media.

Over a couple of Coconut Lattes and a slice of cake, it soon became very clear that there were significant synergies between Look Local Magazine and Harris Consultancy and that their company ethos and objectives complemented one another well. As such, a new partnership has been formed and both Emma Penfold (Look Local) and Chris Harris (Harris Consultancy) are excited to be combining their wealth of experience and knowledge in Marketing, PR, Graphic Design, Branding, Social Media Management, Sales and Website Design to deliver a personal and fully compressive marketing package to both existing and new clients.

By working with a Full-Service Marketing Agency who specialise in supporting the growth of small to medium businesses, start-up’s and sole traders, you can feel assured that every aspect of your business branding is consistent which in turn illustrates confidence to make you stand out from the crowd. Emma & Chris believe that the key to every successful business, coupled with building strong relationships, is
branding. To market your business effectively you need to create a strong brand, which is instantly recognisable. Designing a logo is a good starting point as this can determine the path the rest of your branding follows. Your potential customers will encounter your marketing
collateral long before you have the opportunity to dazzle them with your charm. 

Whether this initial contact has been made via your website, a business card, magazine advert or any other form of marketing communication, it is vital that the correct image is portrayed. If you are keen to come across as a professional and reputable business that the public would want to trust with their custom, it makes sense that your marketing material reflects this. Your website is another vital cog in the marketing wheel. It’s your online shop front, yet statistics show we have less than 15 seconds to capture a potential customer before they navigate to the next site! As times change, consumers are shopping and researching online, often navigating through different sites and sources, reading countless reviews before making a purchasing decision. It is therefore paramount to develop a secure, clean,
responsive and optimised website that is eye-catching, easy to navigate and conversion friendly, ensuring that you convert at every opportunity.

Working with Look Local and Harris Consultancy

We deliver a personal, passionate & tailored service to each and every one of our clients, big or small. We often hear of the challenges local businesses are facing, tight budgets, very little time, not quite enough hands and as such we firmly believe that there’s no merit in a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. Therefore, before recommending a marketing strategy we like to gain more of an insight into our clients company objectives. This enables us to offer the most competitive and innovative solution that we feel confident will achieve solid results.

We are happy to work on one off projects but prefer to grow with our clients and be seen as an extension to their team. As such we have created pay-monthly packages, which encompass;
Advertising, both in the publication and online

  • Social Media Management to help you deliver unforgettable messages as well as build up
  • a client base with targeted adverts.
  • Website build, maintenance and online reputation management
  • Marketing Consultancy Service

So, if you want clear, honest and tangible results on and off line with the opportunity to learn how they’re achieved then visit www.harris-consultancy.co.uk for further information on package prices and see how we can help your business shine.

Love seeing all these posts of pubs and restaurants reopening! Here’s an update from The Angel in Bicester 🍻Oh hi there, remember us? 🙋🏼‍♀️ We remember you and can’t wait to welcome you back on.... 🥁 MONDAY the 12th APRIL!! 🎉🔸Opening Hours. The pub will now be open from 4pm-10pm Monday - Thursday. 3pm - 11pm Friday 12pm - 11pm Saturday 12pm - 9pm Sunday The bar will close 30 minutes before closing time allowing you all enough time to finish your drinks. 👩🏼‍🌾🔸Booking. We have decided that the best way for us to operate means will not be taking bookings, tables will be on a first come first seated basis. 🪑🔸Track & Tracing! It is now mandatory to collect track and trace information from ALL customers. Yes, that’s EVERYONE on your table. We have the relevant NHS COVID 19 poster with the QR code specific to us. You’ll find this on displayed on arrival a member of staff will also have a portable one to bring to your table when they take your first order so we can ensure that everyone has signed in successfully. We would advise that you download the NHS-Covid 19 app before you arrive to make the process as smooth & simple as it can be. No worries if you can’t, we have wifi and you can download it here! No excuses 👀*No track & trace = No drinks* 🔸Face Coverings. We must ask that on entering the building at any time you do so wearing a face covering. Once seated at a table you may remove it. However if for any reason you need to leave the table, for example to come inside to use the toilet, or entering the pub itself for any other reason you must put your face covering back on. 😷🔸Table Service Only. Once you and the members of your group are seated a member of staff will be over to take your order.If you need us just flash us a smile or give us a wave and we will be with you as soon as possible. 🔸Rule of 6.There is a maximum of 6 people to a table however each individual table has its own maximum capacity. Although it’s tempting to stand up and mingle as we’ll all be outside we ask that you remain seated and don’t hop from table to table. 6️⃣I know that’s a lot of information to take in, trust me, we’ve been trying to process it all ourselves. Like always we will do our best to operate the best we can and provide an environment everyone feels safe and comfortable in. ItThank you for following the rules and understanding that they’re not things we want to do but things we HAVE to do. 🥰Much Love Hannah & Team Angel 🧡*P.S, please come prepared for the weather! Bring your own, blankets, brollies, coats, hats, suncream or anything else you might need to shield you from the weather of all four seasons. ☀️🌱⛈❄️🍂As we know, we can experience them all in one day 😂* ...
