Welcome to our world!


You name it, chances are we can help you with it

Our core business is maximising your marketing efforts and it doesn’t worry us if you’re a start-up or a super-successful multi-national, we can’t wait to understand what you do and who you do it for so we can help you do it even better. Yes that’s right, we take the time to understand you and your team, so we can add real value.


Officially we’re professional service providers, unofficially we’ll do everything you need to market your products and services the best possible way how.

We’re all about results, so we focus on making things happen – or helping you make them happen. The marketing plans, brand strategies and communication programmes we develop don’t sit gathering dust on a shelf. That’s because years of experience has shown us that effective implementation is integral to your overall success on and offline.

During the past decade we’ve established a reputation as a talented, creative team.

We respect deadlines, do some straight talking when it’s needed and deliver quality results for our clients. We’ve worked with start-ups, one-man bands, large corporates, councils and community groups… you name the industry and we’ll name the work we’ve done. Prepare to be impressed by the scale and scope of our output – not bad we reckon, for a little company with big ideas.


The no 9 team is bursting with talent, skill, experience and enthusiasm…

Ok, so modesty might not be our strong point... We’re not shy about promoting our clients so we can’t be shy about ourselves! Our collective efforts ensure you get what you need, when you need it, and we’ll also prompt you to do things you’ve never even thought about – but only if we believe it will benefit your business and your bottom line.
