An opportunity to leap at


Business people with creative ideas could benefit from a rare boost this month as members of the team at one of Cornwall’s leading marketing agencies are donating their spare leap-year day to deserving businesses.

Falmouth-based Eight Wire is offering its services free of charge to celebrate the leap year.

Eight Wire delivers marketing-related projects across a broad spectrum including branding, SEO, print design, social media campaigns, public relations, email marketing and graphic design. It also offers marketing training and workshops that help businesses to plan their marketing and growth efforts.

“Based on the Eight Wire ethos of achieving remarkable results with limited resources,” said Sara Pugh, the agency’s MD, “we wanted to celebrate the leap year and the extra day by offering a little piece of Eight Wire to those who have a genuine need.

“In order to avail yourself of a free day of our team’s time — you could be an existing client or someone completely unknown to us — you just have to have a good idea that needs a keen and able digital marketing team to bring it to life.”

To enter, people are asked to visit the Eight Wire website and fill in a digital form explaining what their project is and how they think a bit of assistance from a team of digital marketing experts could help.
