It really doesn’t matter whether you are a 100m yacht, a service company, or onshore you marketing should go through some key steps and from experience 90% of businesses who don’t have a digital agency don’t do these.

A professional website, should be easy, but if you’ve had a web builder build what you’ve asked for you could be missing key conversion aspects.

Do you have tracking, are you getting information on where clients browse, where they leave your website, how they convert, if they get in touch…? All of these are key to knowing how to optimise your website to catch clients just at that point of interest.

What is that point of interest? It can be different for many types, but you need to be aware of the ‘choke points’ where would a client be ready to get in touch – and do you have that conversion technique staring them in the face?

Whether you want them to download a ‘what to expect on board book’, watch a video of your vessel or service, get in touch, or direct them straight to booking with your broker there’s many ways to catch them.

Have you thought about digital marketing?

One of the most powerful aspects of social media is its ability to powerfully connect your business with those who are looking for it. One of the best things about social is finding audiences that are browsing similar businesses. Ask yourself this, how many yachts are out there, now how do you get in front of the client? Do you rely on a a broker, a comparison site? Perhaps if we could shove your business in front of a potential client, if only for a few seconds – it can be enough to start the customer journey. If done right, this can be done for a few cents per person. Once they click not only are they captured in your funnel, they become a powerful source of finding more people just like them for future marketing.

More stuff…

Speed of Light Digital was originally formed when the founders noticed a lack of revenue centred digital agencies in the market. Many were too focused on ‘soft’ returns, metrics like followers, likes.

We knew that you could aggressively target scalable sales, revenue and profit even with a small digital footprint.

A few of us joined forces, named ourselves after the rate at which people scroll through media and started getting some great results for our clients.

We’ve only went from strength to strength.


What our clients say

Derek Watt
Oscars Restaurant & Premier Leisure Cinema

Speed Of Light Digital totally redefined how we market our business online. From re-developing our independent cinema website to allowing meal deals and vouchers to be sold online, right through to assisting us with a better approach to marketing Oscars Restaurant. The guys have made a massive difference to our online presence, and our bottom line. Our non-voucher revenue went up by 39% since they have been actively managing an engagement campaign to drive footfall through our doors.

Scott Mould
Cunninghame Housing Association
Marketing & Publications Manager

Our previous website was proving very difficult for service users and stakeholders to navigate. Speed Of Light Digital came in and worked with us to define the user journey and the business goals of the new project, whilst they delivered a modern user friendly business website.

Estate Agency
Owner & Managing Director

We asked Speed of Light to lay down some training for our team on social media. Within 3 days our reach had doubled, our engagement trebled and we got the same amount of inbound leads from our social media channels than we had in the entire last month, and we had only started 2 of their strategies (they sent us off to plan 7!). Phenomenal.

Succinct and straight to the point. “These strategies are tried and tested”.
They were. And they worked.

Even the biggest believer in our team didn’t expect to see the numbers coming through as they did. We got the first lead before they had left – simply by asking our audience for that engagement. I’m pretty sure the boss said a swear word under her voice when we told her. We work in a high margin industry too, so the few days of training that Speed of Light gave us was paid for within the week.

We’ve used the team again to train new people that come on, and to occasionally give refreshers to the team on what’s happening in social media world and to keep us up to date with new developments.

I’ve already said it but PHENOMENAL. You can’t afford to not call them.

Niche Wine Company
Marketing Manager

Our site was languishing as our team didn’t know how to best exploit SEO. It had been set up in a hurry by a friend of one of the owners.

We asked Speed of Light for a review, asked them to implement it and watched our analytics. Slowly but surely our organic traffic increased, there were month on month increases, topping out after about 4-6 months at around 9% on average and topping 15% some months.

The team were much quicker than I expected them to be, and certainly not as expensive as some agencies that we had quoting for the work.

We’ve continued to work with them for quarterly reviews on what we’re doing and what steps to take to keep ahead of the game and their suggestions are great.

Their business and growth ideas come from grade A business schools, this team are not your typical agency! And you’ll find they act like an extension of your team, interacting with a number of stakeholders in the business seamlessly.

Gillian Urquhart
Moira Anderson Foundation

Our organisation celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2020, we decided to mark this special occasion by revamping our website. We were introduced to Speed of Light via a mutual contact, we’re so pleased that happened. The guys were so helpful and approachable throughout the whole process, nothing was a bother. We were delighted with the end result, we got exactly what we needed to take us forward into our next chapter.
