“It is daunting. None of us got into our profession to be on TV and yet here we are thrown in at the deep end as presenters, sometime actors and camera men… Pete makes this now important side of our digital marketing genuinely enjoyable, often amusing and not as difficult as we thought it might be!
“Most importantly it is a very useful tool in getting our company’s skills and products out to people in a way that is informative and entertaining rather than the hard sell, which to my mind is a much better way of getting our message out there.”
CREATIVE DIRECTOR, AMRON ARCHITECTURAL
“Working with Pete has added creativity, ideas and quality that is outside what we could achieve on our own.
“What I like about working with Pete is that he is passionate about what he does, but also about what we do, and he invested a lot of time in helping us achieve exactly what we wanted. He is able to share ideas that have worked well for his other customers and offers suggestions for new and inventive ways to show off our capability. He also offers valuable input into our wider marketing activity, beyond the video work.”
MANAGING DIRECTOR, HYDROSCAND UK
“Pete is really passionate about social media and its benefits for business. He spoke to me about social media content, and how we could use it for our campaigns. He also created a number of short form videos, that we will be using in our content campaigns going forward.
“If you work in the metal sector and you want video content for your business, I’d have no hesitation in recommending Pete at Comton Media.”
DIRECTOR, ANGLO STAINLESS

How much do you charge?
We believe that it is really important to be open and transparent about our fees and what services we offer, so that you can be completely sure when you call us that we are capable of performing the services you require and can do so for an acceptable fee.
For this reason, we have a complete breakdown of our fees on our Pricing page.
How does the process work?
The first step is to arrange a consultation, where we will discuss your needs and requirements, provide an estimate of the timescales as appropriate to the work being undertaken, and determine a plan of action.
Throughout the process, we will work closely with you and your team to ensure that you are involved, updated and able to provide feedback, so that you can keep your stakeholders updated and receive a product or solution that you are completely satisfied with.
How long does it take?
While each project is unique, we have sufficient data from prior engagements to be able to provide an estimated timescale at the start of the process, and we will be flexible around visiting you on site at times that are convenient to you.
We will agree a timescale with you during our initial consultation, and guarantee to supply our finished work on the agreed completion date.
If you select one of our longer-term contracts, we will set milestones to deliver regular updates, offer flexible payment options, and commence renewal discussions in ample time to enable a seamless continuous service.
Couldn’t we just do this ourselves?
We’re not reinventing the wheel here. There is a good chance that you have a smartphone that is perfectly adequate for taking good quality photos and videos, and access to social media for you to share your thoughts and ideas.
Indeed, we will always recommend that you develop your own in-house marketing capabilities and become adept at representing your own brand across the various web and social media platforms.
We have an ever-growing collection of Articles that will teach you a variety of tips and tricks and enable you to level up your marketing skills.
We want you to call us, though, when you need to draw on our experience to discuss ideas and design processes, when your proposed project is bigger than you feel that you can handle yourself, or if you simply want us to take on all of the marketing burden for you.
