The Foundry House, set up by Marcie Bell, is the go-to source of support and advice for small, growing companies who need a fresh perspective on their PR, marketing and communications.
Marcie works with some clients on a one-to-one basis but she frequently teams up with her Associates to offer additional capacity and/or specialist skills, such as Social Media Marketing or sector-focused media relations.
However you choose to work us, you’ll find the focus is on strategic, integrated and cost-effective communications.
We work with early-stage companies as well as larger, established businesses and not for profits, handling briefs of all sizes – from small, short burst projects to high profile integrated campaigns.
We believe in joining work up for maximum effect and use all the tools at our disposal, from good, old-fashioned face-to-face communications to all things digital.
We take our name from founder Marcie Bell – the foundry being where bells are cast!
How we work
Unlike agencies, The Foundry House has no hierarchy. We are all highly experienced in what we do and we add most value when we are seen as an extension of your in-house team.
Whether you work one-to-one with Marcie on your strategy and plan or you draw on the wider team for delivery (you can, of course, do both!) we combine our fresh perspective, new ideas and marketing communications skills with your day-to-day knowledge of your business and sector. We define clear strategies and develop compelling campaign plans that help drive growth.
The Virtual Marketing Director gives companies ongoing access to strategic advice, with the option to access hands-on support if needed. With some clients, our brief includes training and developing a member of staff to continue what we have started.
The Foundry House ethos
We are disciplined. You can rely on us to be on time, on message and on top of our work for you. As experienced project managers, we are consummate forward planners – with an eye for detail.
Strategic. Working with you to develop clear strategies to get the right message to your audience in a cost-effective way.
We are trusted. We get results. We don’t make promises we can’t keep. And we’ll tell you if we think you’re barking up the wrong tree!
Flexible. Project-based or retainer; one consultant or a team. It’s your call.
We make it fun. To do a really good job, you need to enjoy what you do and the way you work. And we do! The stimulation we get from each other’s ideas and experience is ploughed into our work for our clients so you get current, creative and strategic advice which we have fun delivering.
We are connected. When we see an opportunity, we will connect you with people we feel could help you get where you want to go.
