A Manchester-based digital marketing agency is set to travel around the world in 80 days this year after winning a number of new clients.

What Marketing, based at The Foundry on Ordsall Lane, has won several pieces of work from clients including SANDEMANs New Europe, WYSE Travel Confederation and Wrestling Travel which will see the team travelling across the globe to film in stunning locations including Fiji, Peru, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Madagascar, Seychelles, Mauritius, Croatia and Cyprus.

Global city tours provider SANDEMANs New Europe has commissioned What Marketing to produce a series of ‘24 hours in the city’ videos for 55% of the cities the company operates in.

The team at SANDEMANs New Europe were so impressed with the work What Marketing did in Berlin last year, that it commissioned an additional five films to be created, each showcasing the very best each city has to offer.

Stephanie Taylor-Carrillo, Chief Partnerships and Communications Officer at SANDEMANs, said: “We were blown away by the dynamic creativity at What Marketing, as well as the quality of their work and the results they generate. They really demonstrated a strong return of investment so there was no question that we wanted to extend our working relationship with them.”

Chris Townsend, co-founder and MD of What Marketing, said “To say What Marketing is going places is an understatement – 24 countries around the world and counting! It’s absolutely incredible the response that we have had to our work and to be winning clients from around the globe is amazing.

“We’re still a young company and we’ve worked really hard to build our reputation within the travel industry. It’s a sector we have a lot of knowledge and experience in and it helps that the team really enjoy the work they do – especially in these stunning locations. We’re all really looking forward to completing these new client briefs and showing them the final results.”

Chris and paid media specialist, Liam Cooper, are the first of the What Marketing team to start the global adventures this year with a trip to Indonesia, Fiji andVanuatu for The Green Lion.
