Point of Sale by definition is the place where decisions are made to buy. It is therefore crucial that any POS designs and displays need to be creatively designed to stand out from the crowd.
Northern Media can source standard POS displays for retailers or offices at affordable prices or we can design and produce bespoke POS display units in metal, plastic, wood and card. Whether you are looking for a one or a thousand, we provide a solution to your needs.

As day to day business becomes increasingly time pressured, a newsletter is an extremely effective way to communicate information, good news, success stories, contract wins, new products and services, project news to either an existing or prospect client base.
In our experience of writing and producing newsletters over the last five years, the key to their success is ensuring that the content is tailored to its target audience and contains information that will be of benefit to the recipient. Generally speaking, we try to ensure that our newsletters strike that balance between having plenty of new, useful, credible and interesting commercial information, coupled with a bit of fun and personality. By giving newsletters a mix, we find that we can reach quite a diverse audience. Our research has also suggested that people read newsletters in downtime, so bombarding readers with too much hard line business information can disengage readers.
Northern Media can provide the complete end to end solution, including bespoke newsletter design, copywriting, photography, print, distribution and electronic mailing. Our team of writers and designers work together to produce a newsletter that is creative and stylish, but fundamentally is tailored to appeal to your target market.
Emailing newsletters either as a flat file, pdf attachment or via a hyperlink to your website has become increasingly popular over the last two years for three key reasons:
1. There is printing involved so costs are kept very low
2. You can reach your target audience within seconds, so it is extremely quick
3. There is an environmental benefit of not using paper
Also known as email marketing, Northern Media can provide the complete e-newsletter service, from the design of the newsletter through to database and contact management, electronic mailing, response analysis, open and click through rates and reporting.
The key to successful website design is to first understand the key and unique strengths of your products and services coupled with the desires and motives of your target market. Your account manager will first ask you lots of questions about your customers, their behaviours, their age and demographic profiles. They will also try to identify key reasons why your target market should buy from you rather than your competition. We will then research the market to gain a better understanding of your competitors websites, any likes and dislikes, and generate ideas how you can stand out from the crowd.
We also discuss how important it is for your website to be optimised within the natural search results of the major search engine as this will also influence the design and layout.
Your account manager will work closely with our website design team to produce a range of front page and internal page concepts that markets the unique selling points of your products, services or business. We will pay particular attention to ensuring that whilst being creative and stylish your website design is functional and practical, to ensure visitors can find exactly what they want quickly. We will ensure that the website design is consistent with your company branding and corporate image, and ties in with other elements of your marketing mix.
Where possible, we will also ensure the design of the website can accommodate future developments within the business, so that if you choose to add new products or services or diversify into new markets the website can evolve and expand.
