Who we are
We’re a full service marketing agency based in Kings Langley, Herts. The brand, Stop the Train, has been around since 2005. We’re only a small agency (some say perfectly formed) but this means our clients are actually able to talk to us, rather than go through layers of Project Managers!
Our team brings experience of planning, reviewing and implementing marketing plans across a variety of industries. This means we can combine best practice from other sectors and apply these intelligently to your company and situation. The result is an approach that will be realistic, pragmatic and most of all, effective. We can also deliver faster and more efficiently than most external resources.
We work for a variety of sectors including property, travel, training, healthcare, industrial, professional services, automotive, technology, corporate entertainment, communications and medical (to name but a few!).
Why choose us?
Before you have a look some of the great projects we’ve worked on, we thought you might want to know why Stop the Train are the right choice for your next project…
We’ll try and improve your brief
We’ll take the time to listen to what you need and what you want, and make suggestions on how to get the best results from your project. For example, if you’ve got a series of adverts in the same publication, we can come up with a successive campaign to help build brand awareness.
Some of our clients prefer to have input into the design and some like to leave the creative side entirely up to us, we’re happy working either way.
We love a good deadline (except on a Friday!)
We’re used to working with publications and other agencies, and having to produce artwork or content within tight deadlines, although we do prefer having more notice!
We’ll give you what you’ve paid for…
When we purchase any images for your project, we’ll also provide you with these as separate files. As far as we’re concerned, you’ve paid for them and should have them to use in your other marketing projects.
… and give you extras for no extra!
If you’ve already committed to a particular advertiser, and have the size and the format you need, then we’ll supply you with the necessary print-ready file by email or disc for you to send onto them. If it’s an advert for multiple magazines, we’ll supply it in a variety of file formats for you at no extra cost.
We’ll give you more BANG for your buck
Unlike other agencies, we don’t assign the copywriting to a particular project. So, when we’ve written some compelling content for one piece of your marketing and you want to use it in another marketing promotion, you can. In fact, we’ll encourage you to use it in a variety of media to keep the message consistent! It goes without saying that we won’t ask for any more money from you.
We’ll even help you print it
If it’s an offline project and you’ve already chosen your print company, then we’ll supply you with print-ready files of your brochure by email or disc for you to send onto them. If not, we can either introduce you to some of the printers we use, or get your brochures printed for you.
