Marketing Funding Available for Companies in the North East

A North East based marketing and PR agency has teamed up with a leading funding provider to offer companies in the energy, water and waste; process, manufacturing and engineering sectors the opportunity to receive marketing funding towards delivering activities that will drive growth and add significant value for businesses.


Scarab4 – situated in Northumberland – is now a registered provider of NBSL funding, meaning that its clients, both new and existing, can apply to receive financial support towards their marketing and PR activities. To support business growth within the region, NBSL’s North East Business Support Fund – (NEBSF) which is part financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) – allows businesses based in Northumberland, Tyne and Wear and County Durham the opportunity to access up to £2,800 worth of funding.


And as registered providers for NEBSF, Scarab4 – a full service agency – deliver a wealth of services, all under one roof, which can be utilized as part of the funding. This includes marketing activities ranging from design, branding and creative right through to digital, PR and market research and strategy. Speaking about the funding, Scarab4’s Katherine Rowell said:


“We understand that engaging in marketing and PR for companies that have never invested in such activities can be quite a daunting task. However, it is certainly an area that companies should not shy away from. With opportunities available – such as this funding – it can make the process of engaging in marketing and PR a lot easier forthose companies that may be a little weary of the measurable impact that such activity can actually have, which can be significant.


“We have carved an excellent reputation in the industry for delivering strategic marketing activities that create awareness, sustain interest and ultimately drive bottom line profit. We are extremely proud that we are able to consistently deliver a significant return on investment for our clients. And funding opportunities like this provide the opportunity for local companies to experience growth and exposure with the help of a subsidised investment.”


As a sector specific agency – only working with clients in the energy, water and waste; process, manufacturing and engineering; housing, regeneration and development and environment sectors – the company prides itself on being experts in these fields, which they firmly believe saves their clients time and money. And with a team of specialists who have worked in these industry sectors for over a decade, the company very much applies its sector knowledge and expertise remaining true to its sector specific roots.
