Q&A with Ryan

What was your first ever job?

My first job was at Olympus Sports, Oxford Street in central London at the age of 17.

Due to my love of trainers, I figured I’d be chatting to customers about all the different makes and models as well as making plenty of cash. In reality, I was on minimum wage, working in the stock room and bringing the shoes to the shop-floor staff. Still good fun, all-in-all.

How did you first start in Digital Marketing?

The early part of my career was in Telecoms for the likes of Telefonica o2. Whilst consulting my clients, I would often be asked about my opinion on their marketing strategies. I began researching solutions to help them out.

Shortly afterwards I was headhunted to work in a Digital Consultancy in Hammersmith that was very closely aligned to Google. I learned so much there in a short period of time and began to realise it was my calling. I also started to learn I had a huge passion for design philosophies.

What makes Eastworks different to other Digital agencies?

As well as our focus on Design, we’ve spent considerable time fine tuning the client experience. When working with us, clients can see exactly what is happening at all times, as well as how and when, and feedback is fluid throughout our processes.

This is something we are aware is not typical in our industry.

What kind of clients do you work with?

We have a broad range of customers, from corporates to freelancers. As long as we feel we can add value and help them progress, we’re proud to support them in their endeavours.

What kind of budgets to clients typically spend?

This is a question we get asked a lot. It really is impossible to say as the possibilities are endless when it comes to Digital Marketing.

The main thing is transparency. We never charge out fees without client approval and sign off. Fees are either charged on a per project basis or per hour according to the type of work that is being carried out.

What has been a high point for the business so far?

When we first started, we won Best New Business and Best Creative Business in Anglia. A bit of a surprise for us, but very welcome, and acknowledgement that we were on the right track. Some of our recent client wins have been excellent, but you’d have to ask us about them.
