We are often approached by companies looking for an all-inclusive service - redesigning or creating a brand new website, designing a logo and corporate identity, helping write website content, creating leaflets or brochures and building high quality links for SEO. Obviously not every business will want every service, however we can provide small business owners with the peace of mind that they have a single contact point and a pro-active company they can trust to provide all of their online and offline marketing needs.
We understand that larger companies complete much of their online marketing in-house and therefore look to Indigoextra to outsource specific projects that require our expertise. They might want us to convert an article to an infographic, or convert a website to a more user-friendly Drupal CMS and give it a responsive design, to translate a website, or for us to complete a dedicated content marketing campaign with only high authority backlinks.
We work with clients in a wide range of industries including travel, fashion, entertainment, social, wholesale and retail. We have a strict ethical policy and therefore don't work with clients in the gambling, military or adult industries.
Our Multilingual Marketing Company
One of our specialities is providing a multilingual marketing service in English, French, German and Spanish and any content we write will be written by a fluent, native speaker and carefully proofread.
Our core team is based in the UK and in Montpellier, France, however we do work closely with some copywriters and translators in Spain, Germany and Austria, as the internet facilitates international communication and we believe in finding the best people to work with, wherever they happen to be based.
No two projects are identical and we therefore offer a tailor-made service for each client. If you contact us we’re happy to send you a brochure in the first instance, however to give you an accurate quote we find it’s best to talk through your requirements in order to fully understand them, after which we will send you a custom proposal.
