About 303 London

303 is a creative digital marketing agency for the new age of advertising.

303 was born out of the lived experiences of our owners, having worked both in-house and agency side. They had found that the traditional digital marketing agency setup, where creative and media were separated, was no longer suitable for direct to consumer brands in the new age of advertising. 

We see the new age of advertising as a world in which creative and media are so intrinsically linked and intertwined, that they simply cannot live apart anymore. Great brands are consistent in how they look and sound, cohesive in their strategies and clearly aligned in their goals. We have experienced first-hand how difficult it is to become a great brand in the traditional agency world, so we created 303 to fix that.

Through our lived experiences of the problems brands face when they detach media and creative, our solution was simple, to put both of them together, all under-one-roof. Half of our agency is made up of a full in-house creative team; working across videography, photography, post-production, motion graphics, graphic design and branding. The other half is a media department, working across an array of channels in the field of paid social, PPC, email marketing, programmatic, organic social, out-of-home and influencer marketing.

 

The benefits of our all under-one-roof approach are numerous, but our partners most notably express their preference of the cohesiveness and alignment of our strategies, our tight, data-driven feedback loops and the economy of scale that comes with having 1 agency partner instead of 2 or more.

Our collaborative, all under-one-roof approach is the reason that partners feel great levels of confidence in our decisions and recommendations. Creative decisions have historically been overly subjective and insufficiently grounded in data. This is a problem for direct to consumer brands, because creative is now one of the biggest variables on performance.

From a TikTok ad to a Sky AdSmart TV commercial, the effectiveness of a piece of content must be measured using the relevant data points. Where the traditional agency model falls down here  is that feedback is often slow and not well understood. Creative teams will often not understand the KPI’s that media teams are working towards and therefore misalign.

Our team of creatives not only receive feedback on an ongoing basis from our media teams, but they truly understand it. They know the difference between what a brand awareness advert and a conversion advert seek to achieve, and they understand the metrics that will measure the effectiveness of the pieces of content that they make.

Moreover, this understanding and alignment between both of our departments results in truly game-changing feedback. Across all of our managed partner accounts, learnings are continually shared, noted and applied. If we see a trend, a platform or a medium working especially well on an account, it can be seamlessly activated across others that same day, giving 303 partners a significant competitive advantage.

We are proud to have a young and talented team of digital and creative specialists at 303. They are all highly experienced in the platforms that we operate on, but crucially, they are also first mover and early adopters of new platforms. They have their fingers firmly on the pulse and regularly propose new channels and opportunities for our clients.

At 303, we take a platform agnostic approach to the strategies that we develop for our partners. Our extensive experience working across multiple sectors, as well as careful analysis of potential new opportunities informs our decision making. All too often traditional platforms are relied upon regardless of the appropriateness of them for each business.

Audiences are one of the biggest variables in our platform decision making for clients. Platforms such as TikTok have a younger usership, so of course will be better matched with those businesses that are targeting a young audience. Likewise businesses that are of a premium price point may opt to work across programmatic channels, so they have the ability to associate their brand with appropriately luxurious websites and their users.

Who we partner with

As a digital marketing agency for direct to consumer brands, our offering has been tailored to provide all the digital marketing and creative services that an ambitious DTC brand needs. The new age of digital marketing has resulted in media and creative becoming so intrinsically linked, that not having a cohesive approach fundamentally limits growth potential for DTC brands.

As a result, the common denominator of all of our partners is that they are ambitious and disruptive in their respective sectors. They are all eager to scale quickly and therefore require an agency partner who is able to facilitate that.

We are proud to partner with brands from a wide array of industries, from automotive to food and beverage. In not confining ourselves to one sector, we are able to share learnings, audience insights and data from a broad range of markets. What’s more, 303’s partner diversity results in highly bespoke, unique campaigns that set them apart from their competitors.
