Getting the proposition right and bringing greater clarity and ease-of-use to their website has been key to supporting the marketing of Child Matters based in Marlow, Bucks.
Child Matters delivers educational training courses in basic life support and paediatric first aid for parents, carers, schools, children’s centres and child-care providers, ensuring standards, legislation and government guidelines are met.
Using the latest equipment – and in small groups of no more than 12 – their highly-qualified paediatric professionals ensure that individuals know what to do in an emergency. They also provide specialist nursing services to social and healthcare organisations.
Claire Street – Child Matters’ MD – had developed her own site from scratch and knew she needed help. Claire bought a block of time from 1st Objective that she then used to gain insight into how her site could be developed, copywriting to give the content a lift and consultancy to improve the online user experience.
Our customer Cliveden Conservation has over 30 years’ experience in practical and pragmatic restoration work, from historic houses, to ancient sites. And their sensitivity in dealing with owners, architects and governing bodies, means their marketing needs safe hands.
Based at Taplow in Berkshire, Cliveden Conservation asked 1st Objective to create a brand new site to hold their extensive library of case studies and showcase their range of work.
Since then we have developed a suite of hardcopy collateral by section – they have locations in Norfolk and Bristol as well as Berkshire – and by discipline –Stone, Plaster and Decorative Arts.
Our latest work promotes their survey work. The survey is the starting point for any restoration or conservation intervention. It informs decisions and provides the contextual basis for choosing the correct courses of action. Analysing the variables, and considering the alternatives takes experience, and that’s where Cliveden Conservation really adds value to their client’s own expertise.
If you’re in a sales-led company – and you’ve taken on the role of marketing – then we could be just what you’re looking for, a marketing resource that you can just switch on or off.
For our bigger customers we supplement the work of their incumbent agencies, bringing specialist skills on a project basis.
At the other end of the scale we act as a completely outsourced marketing department, helping our customers create the brief, present at board level and develop campaigns for focused outcomes.
Your 1st Objective
We align marketing services in a way that supports your sales objectives. We are not a specialist agency and you’ll find that we deliver unbiased, agnostic advice.
We look at typical sales and how they are achieved. Then we suggest marketing services to make those sales easier, more frequent and more likely to succeed. Later we support your engagement with key accounts for repeat sales.
And beyond sales support, we look to build your brand’s value, improve engagement with customers and communicate internally to make your workplace even more productive.

We deliver the following Marketing and PR services:
• Organisational structure and prioritisation of the marketing department(s) resources
• Rigorously auditing the marketing you have planned both past and present
• Market segmentation and scoring against competitors
• Review and evaluate the quality and applicability of market data
• Practical and pragmatic implementation of marketing services to grow sales
