Our supportive approach for your business growth
Hello, I’m Colleen Lewis, founder of 10 Plus Media. I’d like to explain why our approach to online marketing is a bit different from most agencies – thanks to the layers of experience I have gained on my journey from being a corporate writer to running an online marketing agency.
We mentor and facilitate
Empowering and mentoring is integral to our client relationships – it’s the core of how we help our clients make practical marketing strategies and improve their knowledge of digital marketing and customer engagement. All because I started out as an English teacher, which had a huge influence on my work in later years.
We get the basics right
Years of editing and writing corporate content, in particular annual reports and company profiles, honed my skills in professional writing. Here I learned the importance of clear communication and engagement as well as meticulous attention to detail. We may be an online marketing agency, but we are also really good writers. Content is key for any business!
Content that works
As a Mom and most-of-the-time freelance writer, I clocked up thousands of hours of experience in writing for PR agencies, churning out hundreds of press releases, case studies and opinion pieces – which led me to question the marketing value of all the content I had to produce. Thus my interest in online marketing strategy developed, and I saw the need for effective content to support it.
Now I make sure that our clients get quality content, a holistic approach and personal support from experienced people.
We’re on the same business journey
We understand the business journey that our clients are on, because we are travelling that path ourselves. In 2012 I established 10 Plus Media with a collective of writers and offered a content writing service.
It was a natural evolution to specialise in digital content, writing powerful and engaging content for online media such as websites and social media. All our writers are now experts in search engine optimisation (SEO) and we offer monitoring and measuring of online engagement to our clients.
Because marketing requires an integrated approach, our team has grown to include web developers, brand designers, graphic designers, a publicist, an SEO consultant, a funnel marketing specialist and also a business development consultant. We have a satellite team in Cape Town and are currently situated in the vibey entrepreneurial hub in Johannesburg’s Maboneng precinct.
Insights into your challenges
As we have grown ourselves, we have gained insight into the challenges of business growth – which means we can add significant value to our clients. We can see things from their perspective and develop solutions to meet their particular needs.
Our ethos is to provide a back-to-basics service – practical, realistic, budget-conscious, strategic and results-driven. We understand, we find solutions, we work with you, and we stay with you until you succeed.
