With offices in Market Place, Grantham, Local Media Impact has a network of professional copywriters, photographers and designers across the East Midlands.

It offers support creating content for advertising, sales and marketing communications across all media.

The agency, which already has several clients across the region, also specialises in social media.

Mr Parkinson said: “We create compelling words, images and video to help local businesses engage with their customers.

Many business owners are simply too busy to be able to devote much time to their marketing messages.

“Many business owners are simply too busy to be able to devote much time to their marketing messages. But getting it right can make such a difference.

“Although we work with organisations of all sizes, across all sectors, we’re particularly keen to work with small and growing businesses. That’s where our experience can really help.”

Mr Parkinson added: “Grantham has a lot going for it. There are some exciting developments and a growing sense of optimism in the town.

“We believe in collaboration and we are already talking to other marketing companies about working together to support business growth.”
