An agency is only as good as the people who work there. And our people are pretty awesome.
We understand that skills need to be kept sharp because the digital landscape evolves rapidly. Technical talent alone isn't enough though; we also focus on a culture of can-do attitudes, proactive thinking and an honest, collaborative approach to working with clients that ensures clear communication and transparent costs. Our goal is to be helpful, insightful and problem solve when digital solutions get complicated.
You don't have to go to London for fast-paced digital expertise and we’re here to prove that.
We're that trusted spare set of hands to help implement a new feature or roll out a campaign. For some clients this is a long-term partnership where we act as an outsourced marketing department. For others, we're there to assist for a key project or when internal resources get tight at short notice.
Perfect for a campaign, website design and development or if you need extra resource short-term. We simply estimate the time, apply the day rate that is relevant for the skill required and take it from there.
This is where you get the most value. We ensure you're first to know about innovations and new features, keep an active eye on the digital health of your business and keep agreed channels running efficiently.
'Pick our brain'
Certain subjects are complicated. Technical integrations, subscriptions, data feeds and digital transformation strategy are all good examples. If you want some of our time to hash out a plan, let's talk.
Tribe Digital was founded in 2015 by Oliver Ody and Emily Shaw, who both started working in digital marketing in 2009.
After working for some big agencies and with big brands (Walker Media, Tug Agency, MullenLowe Profero, Estee Lauder Companies, Glaxo Smith Kline, M&S, Fedex, Fiat, Hunter, Madame Tussauds, Barber – the list goes on), they wanted to try their hand at freelance and bring their knowledge back home to the South West.
By the time they were 30, these two had been used as contractors for agencies including M&C Saatchi, ThinkJam and large multi-national companies such as Swallowfield PLC (now KDC One) and several local SME’s. They have also taken on every scrap of experience they can get with small businesses because they love a start-up and a side-hustle. Their passion for entrepreneurship and helping organisations leverage online opportunities has enabled them to grow their fledgling consultancy into the dynamic agency it is today. The team now includes dedicated expertise in digital design, software development and performance media.
