Integrated agency, KISS Communications has been voted number two marketing agency in Business Weekly’s New Year Honours List. According to the Editor of Business Weekly, Tony Quested, “Economic downturns call for innovation and KISS has delivered it in spades. The agency has remained vibrant regardless of the economic chaos in the background and has come up with some novel ways of promoting clients. Managing director Simon Fryer is the kind of leader that inspires clients, stimulating them through stasis and coaxing them through to brighter climes.” KISS Communications competed against hundreds of PR, advertising, marketing, and design agencies across Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire, Suffolk and Norfolk in the fiercely competitive ‘Image Makers’ category. Managing Director at KISS Communications, Simon Fryer said “Recognising the importance of brand and image is critical in these difficult economic times and KISS has been relentless in the quest to provide marketing solutions to give clients competitive market advantage and increased customer loyalty. We are passionate about injecting pace and stimulating businesses to drive growth. Being acknowledged for this success by the team at Business Weekly is fantastic and was only achieved by the dedicated, dynamic and creative team we have at KISS Communications.” Richard Bland, Creative Director at KISS, added, “As an agency we are constantly looking at new services to help support our clients. Following the launch of KISS Public Relations, we set up KISS Future in the last quarter of 2011, a simple, affordable and structured service to define, focus and position aspiring brands to drive business growth. This has really hit a cord with businesses and has been instrumental in helping us to secure a number of exciting new account wins.” Richard continued, “We are pleased to have been voted No.2 this year, especially when our competition have all been around far longer. But we are all committed to working hard to achieve the No. 1 slot. As Avis once said, because we are number two, we try harder.” The agency works with a mixture of blue chip, successful SMEs and interesting start ups, including Bosch, Booking.com, Johnson Matthey, SISK, PlastiKote, One Nucleus, 8 Solutions, Real Status and Intergence. The company provides strategy, branding, advertising, design, digital, exhibitions and public relations services.
