What's the Bertey story?

#BeBertey - We're big enough to know, but small enough to care... about your digital success

Why Choose Bertey?


Bertey’s audience-centric, data-driven and results-oriented approaches has proven a huge success on the projects we’ve helped with – evident in the long-lasting relationships we’ve built with brands and high client retention rates.  We help brands achieve the success they need to grow their business via continued refinement (because everything digital changes constantly), collaboration, feedback, adjustment, measurement, and innovative strategic recommendations for increased revenues

Who Bertey is

Bertey’s a boutique digital marketing agency providing a range of intelligent data and creativity driven search marketing strategies. She’s also a pomeranian pooch owned by our founder, Dawn Anderson. So, yes, Bertey is a real dog… and a real digital agency (Bertey Ltd).  Bertey’s small enough to provide a dedicated, granular level of service, but she’s big enough to keep abreast of cutting edge industry search strategies.  That’s Bertey the company, not the Pomeranian (of course she’s not at the cutting edge of digital knowledge implementation since she’s a dog, but she certainly hears us talking about all the changes in search, so if she could talk, then maybe she could give a presentation on SEO… hmmm).  Bertey (the company) knows that no one channel can win alone without the amplification effects from others.  Bertey plays nicely and works cross-channel to combine an ‘all-around’ integrated effect via joined-up reach and engagement across paid search, SEO, social media, content, outreach, digital PR and traditional PR.

Bertey can be part of your brand's in-house team

If you don’t have the necessary in-house resource Bertey can provide a full digital marketing and search engine optimization fulfilment service in addition to strategic direction, audits and recommendations.  Bertey works closely with many brand in-house teams who just want either additional support, expert guidance for more junior members or all-round marketers looking for specialist expertise in particular areas.  Maybe you just need an audit for your website, or you are looking for site migration advice?  Bertey can help.  Maybe you’re a start-up looking for a situation analysis of the competitive landscape and want a strategy with tactics formulating.  Bertey can do all of these things, and more.

Bertey comes recommended

Working by recommendation alone we’ve built long-lasting relationships with brands, other contractors, in-house teams, our suppliers, our peers and staff.  We have a long retention history with clients, and an ongoing relationship with them traversing many changes in the digital marketing and SEO landscape in a relatively short space of time.  Clients have continued to see growth through those updates and that’s what matters most.  We adjust as search and online user behaviours change; and they’re always changing.  Because we’ve built many connections we can provide virtually all online marketing services (and some offline marketing ones too – such as traditional PR or print advertising).  You can see many of the reviews and feedback from clients and other members of the digital marketing community on our website and also on our Google My Business page.  We’re well respected by our peers for our contributions to the digital marketing industry.

Bertey traverses the globe from her Manchester base

Whilst Bertey is based up North, in Manchester, UK you’ll be surprised to hear that many clients are based in London or internationally, albeit Bertey do work with some companies and brands in the Manchester area. The nature of the work that Bertey does means that we’re able to work effortlessly with any organisation, regardless of their location via conference call, skype and email of course.  Distance and location is no barrier to us and much of the Bertey team works remotely due to the nature of our consultative work.  Sometimes we are based on site at client premises, and other times we are travelling to speak at conferences or delivering training somewhere.  This means we work whilst we’re on the go.

Collaboration is king

Collaboration and agility are of the utmost importance to us, and we’re always looking at ways in which we can be effective and efficient with our systems and by working alongside clients’ systems. We work with you for the long term.  We can work as an extension of your marketing operation, continually pursuing an integrated digital marketing approach, or provide a strategy for your team to work with.  Our specialists who are experts in their particular channel (each with at least a decade’s worth of experience in the area of paid search, SEO, content marketing or PR, all collaborate with each other too.  We do this so we can deliver campaigns and results which are bigger than the sum of the parts.  Your audience don’t sit in one channel so we work where they are.
