I do hope that you’re all keeping well, especially in these testing times. I’m working as usual to keep all my clients’ social media channels up to date and offering as much support as I can!
Now may be a good time to have a think about updating your website, writing some helpful articles/blogs and reaffirming positive messages so that your clients (and potential clients) are reminded of your professional expertise. This will help to maintain your brand identity, your business reputation and your online presence once the current situation has come to an end.
If you need any further advice, please feel free to drop me a line.
Starting on Friday 8th September 2017, the 80+ team of riders are on a quest to visit every rugby club in Norfolk over three days. Ahead of them lies over 320 miles of open roads (during which they may realise that Norfolk is not as quite as flat as its reputation suggests!)
Over the three days, the club will be riding approximately 100 miles each day to raise an amazing amount of money.
The rugby-themed cycling event intends to achieve three objectives:
Raise a life-changing amount of money for community based charities
Create friendships and foster camaraderie across the rugby community
Promote healthy lifestyles and have fun!
The main charity the team will be fundraising for will be Wooden Spoon, which is the children’s charity of rugby. Their mission statement is “to positively transform the lives of children and young people with a disability or facing disadvantage across the UK and Ireland through the power of rugby.”
Norfolk based MN Landscapes are delighted to be celebrating their 20th anniversary on 4th August 2017.
Established in rural Wymondham in 1997 by Martin and Nicky Wood, MN Landscapes continues to offer creative landscape design, construction and maintenance across Norfolk and Suffolk. Martin & Nicky both have a daily hands-on approach in the company, whilst looking for new ideas and both are looking forward for the future.
A family-run company with the ability to handle high quality landscape construction projects, MN Landscapes are proud to be long standing members and accredited by the APL (Association of Professional Landscapers) and BALI (British Association of Landscape Industries).
Previously MN Landscapes entered national awards hosted by the Association of Professional Landscapers and were proud to have been commended by the judges in both categories.
Now in its twentieth year, MN Landscapes has grown into an impressive team of dedicated soft landscaping gardening and hard landscaping professionals. MN Landscapes have invested heavily in their fleet of sign written vehicles with a range of specialist equipment and machinery, enabling the company to handle more involved and technical projects.
Martin Wood said: “Garden landscaping has evolved over the past 20 years. Modern trends are that people are using their gardens as an additional room to their homes for families and social entertaining. In the future, we expect to see an increase in the use of outdoor lighting and preparation & cooking areas as well as a change in design and planting themes to take into account the changing seasons. We are delighted to be offering our garden maintenance services to some of our first clients of now 20 years.”
Learn Movement is approaching companies of all sizes, both locally and nationally, who are keen to be associated with a unique product we have designed which is helping with dementia and with recovery after stroke.
The product is called the RydaMablet system, which is designed to help those recovering from stroke and other brain injuries in addition to those with dementia and other neurological conditions. As we are local to Norwich, the product is manufactured using local companies.
The RydaMablet is bringing great benefit to many people and although many hospitals, care homes, clubs and organisations are very keen to use them, funds are not available in all cases. The Norwich Community Hospital in particular are planning on finding funds so that they can trial the device in their stroke unit.
Find out more about the RydaMablet system and see it in use at:
It’s been another busy year for us here at Enigmedia towers and we’ve certainly enjoyed working on exciting challenges for a range of local and UK businesses.
From social media management, customer service support and proofreading to newsletter, blog and website content writing; each and every project we’ve been involved with during 2016 has been educational and hugely enjoyable.
We received a call not so long ago from Graham, who is the current owner of Louis’ Deli in the Norwich Lanes. Already a successful cafe/take away and with the updated website looking smart, the business was lacking in just one thing – social media!
Graham was unsure how to promote Louis’ online so we began by going through each of his existing social media profiles in turn (Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google Plus, Instagram). We checked that the business information and images were up to date; the branding was consistent and that a link to the website was clearly visible. After that, it was a matter of letting people know where they could find award-winning coffee, delicious meals and some of the best cakes in Norwich!
Although we can clearly see from our feedback reports that people are reacting to and engaging with Louis’ via social media, it’s a real pleasure to hear from Graham that our work has resulted in more people coming through the door and talking about Louis’ Deli in person.
It’s still early days but we look forward to working with Graham (and his amazing manager Hannah) to help the business grow and promote unique events – such as the ever-popular weekday language chats, new online shopping service and pop up foodie evenings.
Naturally, we’ve sampled the merchandise……you must try the treacle tart and they even serve perfect builders’ tea! (And thank you to everyone who has retweeted, shared and posted their experiences at Louis’ Deli & Cafe too!)

EnigMedia Marketing are pleased to announce that we have recently become a member of Buy Local Norfolk!
The not-for-profit ‘social enterprise’ identifies businesses genuinely local to Norfolk with the aim of keeping a higher proportion of money flowing within the local economy. This helps to support local jobs, local distinctiveness and local communities in a sustainable way.
We’re very proud to be a Norfolk-based independent business, serving a wide range of local organisations and also promoting the county as a unique hub for opportunity and vibrancy.
If you’re a fan of the BBC television programme “Dragons’ Den” then you probably remember Ross Mendham and Barenaked Foods. The entrepreneur from Norfolk first appeared on the show in 2013, pitching for a £60k investment in his gluten-free noodle business, when things took an emotional turn. Asked about his family, Ross was overwhelmed as he recalled his wife Kelly’s most recent miscarriage and had to leave the den. However, he gathered himself, re-emerged from the famous lift and faced the formidable “Dragons” once more. That was when Peter Jones surprised everybody by offering Ross the investment he needed. The prolific investor immediately saw the clever business idea and the genuine passion of the man behind it.
Ross revealed that with the ongoing support from Peter Jones, Barenaked Foods has now moved from selling a few hundred to 800,000 packs of noodles per week and the business is well on the way to being worth £2 million. His products are on sale in three major UK supermarkets as well as health shops and specialist online stores. Better still, he and Kelly welcomed a baby boy to their family in 2014!
We’re delighted to have been working with Barenaked Foods since 2012, allowing us to experience just a small part of the business’ journey as it has evolved. We’re also very proud of local boy Ross for all his hard work and incredible inspiration!
