CREATIVE CONSULTANTS

We are DaisyDM, Direct and Digital Marketing. And we are creative consultants.

We are called Daisy because of the way we are structured: we do the creative strategy and the creative and then we build a bespoke project team using our network to deliver our creative vision. Think of it as a ‘Daisy Chain’ of skills with on-demand expert project managers, strategic planners, data and the right tech and production partners ready as and when needed. What’s different is that you get a dedicated, hands-on Creative Director on top of it from beginning to end.

Ours is more agile, more flexible and a more cost effective way to deliver.

Dave Edwards
Creative and Creative Strategy

“Why creative consultants? it’s simple, the world has changed: creative has a shorter shelf life; budgets are tight; turnarounds tighter still; clients need to get more out of what they have; there’s no room for naval gazing and no budget for indulgent processes”

We believe that the industry has changed

In the new world clients know there are a lot of very experienced, very switched on, commercially minded professionals out there who’ve been there done that as far as big London agencies are concerned and now run their own consultancies doing just the one thing they are very good at. Daisy is the one delivering creative insights and creative executions and with a combination of our network of partners and your people we can bring all the skills together on-demand to deliver creative differently, and get better ROI

With over 25 years experience in top UK agencies including Brann (Havas) and McCanns. Ex CD of DP&A/FCBi (8 yrs) Dave launched Goldfish and won 16 Gold DMA, Fedma, IDM awards on that account alone. He set up Daisy 12 years ago after contracting at a senior level at financial marketing agency Presky Maves and as consultant Creative Director to financial marketing consultancies Macinnes (Mac4) and Bespoke Communications on RBS and GE Money.

We saw a number of agencies – including very well known names – before choosing Daisy for this major project. We liked their approach, their ideas, and the genuine interest they showed in our business. We’re delighted with the results.

They work efficiently to our deadlines and always deliver to budget. Quite simply, they are very easy to do business with and an important part of our Marketing team.

David Newley, Head of Marketing, AIG Direct

In terms of users visiting the website, this has increased since the redevelopment. From the analytics, most people are visiting the site, seeing the number or webchat facility and coming direct to the helpline- this is ideal and aligned to our corporate objectives. We’ve had a warm response around the tone of the site and the website has been referenced by a number of journalists as a great source for pension information. We’ve received a positive response from staff, stakeholders and users regarding the new look and tone.

Michelle Cracknell, CEO, The Pensions Advisory Service

The campaign has been fantastically well received by the agents and consultants of our partner Connells. It’s being actively utilised throughout every part of the sales journey, and we are already starting to see a positive impact on sales volumes. Daisy’s professionalism, attention to detail and execution was second to none, and I look forward to beginning our next creative project together.
