Five by Five is a Launch Marketing agency – which simply means we help brands launch and re-launch more successfully than the business-as-usual approach traditionally taken. We understand that launches are more challenging projects that require a more aligned, more focused process, because, sadly 61% of launches fail in the first two years!
We’re an independent agency with a huge ambition (one that is made credible by the fact that the people who run the agency, own it too) to become the UK’s No.1 Independent Agency.
We may dream big, but we are not a bunch of dreamers. We already have the business set-up and structure needed for success. We’ve built a new and exciting agency around Launch Marketing, defining it as a sector in its own right. What’s more, it’s paying off. Our ‘Launch Loud and Clear’ proposition is more than a soundbite: it’s a proven process that’s appealing to clients who want a more thorough approach that delivers tangible results. We have our own, patented IP client management platform that is the envy of many network agencies. It’s the backbone of the agency’s Launch Marketing system, and we find this really helps open boardroom doors, and build strong relationships with external partners.
With offices in LA, Sydney and London we are still enviously centred in Southampton - which may disappoint anyone who is still naïve to the real power of being an authentic agency outside the London bubble. We’re really excited to invite self-motivated and passionate marketers like you to join us!
