Marketing Magic across South Tyneside and Beyond
DELIVERING a return on their customer's marketing investment - that's MarketinWand's mission, and that is what they do best. Judging by the steady growth of their customer base this is exactly what they achieve.

If you haven't an in-house marketing professional that has knowledge and experience across the whole marketing mix to manage these agencies - the results can be disappointing. I found this to be a common occurrence - particularly for smaller businesses who didn't have a marketing manager or director in place. …
