Sheffield based marketing support agency Your Marketing Managed has secured a significant new client with XDP Logistics, the UK’s largest independent logistics carriers.

Your Marketing Managed was set up by Elaine Keep following the birth of her first child and the business has grown from strength to strength in just 10 months, taking on valued clients including international tech business Tranxactor, based in New Zealand as well as Lavish, a national gift card provider for the spa industry.

Elaine explains:

“I launched ‘Your Marketing Managed’ as a way to offer businesses the service of a marketing manager, without needing to pay for holidays, sick leave, national insurance and pension, whilst still getting a great service. I had noticed a growing need for businesses to have hands-on marketing support with flexibility.

My background has been 14 years in marketing, working as head of department in a mixture of start ups, local businesses and PLC’s including Tuffnells, BriefYourMarket, GO Outdoors and SVM Global.

In my work I help with a range of things dependent on each client’s needs, such as PR, social media, event marketing, print and ‘traditional’ marketing, website management, influencer outreach, blogging and more. Having a baby was the push I needed to set up Your Marketing Managed and I couldn’t be happier with the interest from local businesses looking to support me.”

The appointment comes on the back of significant investments made by XDP into the area of customer experience.

Chris Tresadern, Sales Director at XDP said of the appointment:

“We wanted to partner with a marketing business that could help us to grow social media presence, engage with customers and improve how we communicate to customers – both existing and prospective. XDP Logistics have already invested substantial amounts into improved customer experience, both for their B2B client deliveries and their substantial B2C network including customer efficiency reporting, SMS alerts and emails to confirm deliveries and allow rearranged deliveries as well as ID cards for drivers.

“Elaine from Your Marketing Managed impressed us with her creative ideas for marketing support and how she proposed to work to ensure marketing met with our overall business objectives.”
