What our clients say
Both as the National Museum of the Royal Navy and Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, our relationship with the Marketing Collective has extended over a 10 year period. We have always found the team to be entrepreneurial, creative and a ‘make things happen’ organisation. They listen to feedback and are not afraid to try something new. As a business, they have established a good core of clients and work well with them, always demonstrating a ‘can do approach’. We thoroughly enjoy working with them.

Having spent five years redeveloping the Visit Winchester destination brand we are understandably a little precious about who we allow to promote it on our behalf. Jo and the team at the Marketing Collective grasped this and have been a safe pair of hands throughout the production of the Guest Magazine. I would not hesitate to recommend their services to any business looking to produce high quality marketing collateral.
Understanding Destination BrandsEllen Simpson, Head of Tourism, Winchester City Council / Visit Winchester
“I would highly recommend The Marketing Collective to any attraction looking for a team to quickly and efficiently tackle their design and print needs, large or small. Efficiently the team undertook our commission with great efficiency and enthusiasm, which made it a great pleasure to work with them. With a great understanding of the area, our industry and our customers and they quickly understood what was required. I felt that we had an additional dedicated marketing team supporting our very small site based team.”

The Hampshire Top Attractions group is a great example of how they have made there mark, by steadily growing membership and the consumer database as well as raising brand awareness. Jo and her team are able to not only help organisations improve their marketing but also demonstrate their success through careful monitoring and evaluation of activity.”
