About

We are

We make digital marketing better.

We bring together industry-leading experts to help organisations that need expertise, transparency and honesty where a more traditional digital agency or consultancy would struggle. We’re known for our experience working with some of the world’s largest digital brands, and for our approach of not only looking at what our clients need to grow, but also where they need to pivot or invest less.

Our Mission

Agencies are known for technical execution and scale, but also always pushing clients to spend more, engage more teams and grab a bigger piece of the pie. We prefer to avoid this approach.

Consultancies are known for being brutally honest about what needs to be done, but often lack the technical expertise or willingness to take responsibility for executing their recommendations. We also prefer to avoid this approach.

VEN aims to be best of both worlds. We advise honestly and execute with technical brilliance.

We are…

Straightforward

We don’t have dedicated pitch teams; the experts who talk to you about our work are the experts that will be responsible for delivering your work. You may deal with multiple people, but you always deal with one team at VEN.

Honest

We work with our clients based on time spent on projects, and generally do not use fixed retainers unless our clients request it. This means if we spend less time on a project compared to our estimate or quote, we pass these savings on to our clients.

Pragmatic

It is important to spot opportunities to grow, but equally important to review and not be afraid of slowing down or stopping things that aren’t being useful. We work more holistically and aren’t afraid to advise where to invest less.

Passionate

We believe that digital campaigns can be forces for good and we enjoy making this happen. We think that you don’t always need to spend more money to achieve more effective outcomes.

We help understand and challenge your organisation’s goals, identifying what would benefit the most and why. We then follow-through with either best-in-class execution, audits and reports for existing providers or training for your internal teams to take things forward – recommending whatever approach will work best for you.
