We are the Official Media Partner for the
UK Metals Expo


14-15 September 2022

We specialise in video, audio, web and print marketing for the metal and engineering sectors

We use our wealth of knowledge about the metal and engineering sectors to help you to engage with your customers

Video production services

  • Introduce your customers to new products, services, locations, people or ideas.
  • Deliver news and tell the market what’s happening with your business.
  • Animate complicated processes or simplify big ideas.
  • Create training videos that engage your staff and simplify onboarding and upskilling.

Primarily targeted at the metal and engineering sectors, we bring a breadth of knowledge about the industry to produce video segments that promote businesses in ways that other mediums simply cannot.

Online marketing solutions

  • Maintain a strong online presence
  • Build brand awareness
  • Drive traffic to your site
  • Increase sales

We offer comprehensive marketing solutions that are affordable, lay the groundwork for success and are able to grow with your company.

We will help you get an edge over your competitors, bring in quality traffic and maximise conversions, all while providing the support and guidance you need to stay ahead.

Targeted marketing campaigns

  • Over 100,000 connections and subscribers from across the spectrum of industry
  • The Metal Magazine digital publication, where we can showcase your company or organisation through interviews or editorial-style pieces
  • The Metal Guys Talk Business podcast series where we interview key players from the metal and engineering sectors

Brand strategy

The visual language that you use to convey your marketing messages is often even more important than the message itself.

If you removed your company logo from your website and advertising, would your customers still recognise it as being ‘you’?

Work with us to:

  • Define a consistent visual language for your brand
  • Unify your brand across your website, social media channels, email communications, vehicle branding and packaging
  • Develop your mission statement
  • Design the customer journey through your website and sales process
  • Differentiate your company from your competition

  • “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.”

    Anthony Millington

    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.”

    Rebecca Galley

    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.”

    Steve Brooke

    Director, Anglo Stainless

FAQ

Can’t find your question? Email us!

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.
