The Grange Emporium

I have recently used Creative Lakes on a branding project for The Grange Emporium. I found Neil a pleasure to work with and communication excellent with great inspiring ideas. Neil created a selection of designs and it proved difficult to decide on the end result as I was spoiled for choice. I would definitely recommend Creative Lakes for any branding and marketing project.

Highbrook Homes

I’d definitely recommend Neil to anybody looking to promote their business. As an MBA graduate trained in marketing myself I instantly recognised that he is highly skilled in strategic marketing as well as being able to deliver the message through various mediums. He has a great network and through them he has delivered some great results for me.
— Chris Middlebrook, Managing Director at Highbrook Homes

JT Construction

Neil from Creative Lakes has worked with us to help us better represent and promote our growing business. We have made changes in our company name from J.T Builders to JT Construction, our logo and ultimately our website to encompass our broader offering and growing portfolio.
He has helped us create a brand that is more fitting of the size, quality and core values of the company. This helps us promote our business well and displays to our clients and potential clients what we are capable of delivering.
We look forward to a continued relationship with Creative Lakes, developing and implementing necessary changes as our business continues to grow.

Tinbox Angel

I just wanted to put pen to paper to say thank you for all the help you gave me with the next
growth chapter in my business. I really could not have moved to the next level without all the
help and support you gave me.
From the outset, you listened to me and understood the message I was trying to portray to my
customers. You took time out to get to know my business and the market I was selling to, and for
that I will be eternally grateful. The branding and website you have created for me, was
everything I could’ve hope for and more.
The creation of my website has been a huge leap for me and my business. It has been one of those
really important tasks I couldn’t find the time to sort out alone. I am so glad I finally made the call
to you all those months ago. Handing this task over to you and your team was one of the best
decisions I have made in my business as I simply did not have the skill set to get this off the
ground. You gave me the training I needed to keep it current and operational on a day to day
basis, and although it is still very new to me, I know I have the ability to keep on top of this, and if
not, you are only a simple phone call away.
Running a business on your own can be a lonely and solitude task, but the past few months,
having your input has helped me so much. You have really pushed me to think out of the box, and
given me back my mojo.
I would recommend your services in a heartbeat, and wish you all the future success with
Creative Lakes.
Thank you again for all you have done for me.
— Amanda Gallagher, Owner of Tinbox Angel

Hodgson's Decorators

Neil’s ideas were fresh and constructive and very much just what we were looking for to rebrand the company and really make our website something worth looking at and work better for us, which has already seen an uptake in enquiries and some great feedback regarding our rebranding. His attention to detail is great and you can tell he cares about each individual project he works on. He has been down to see us numerous times to help us with the tweaking of various things which I am sure he never envisaged but nothing has been too much trouble and he has kept things on a level we can understand. We are very pleased with the final results and would have no hesitation in recommending Creative Lakes to businesses or individuals who could benefit from Neil’s knowledge and professionalism.
— Stuart Nelson, Managing DirectoR at Hodgson's Decorators

Sensible Print

The support that Neil and Creative Lakes has provided to Sensible over the last two years has helped us to create a clear direction and strong foundation on which to continue building the business. As a sales person, I was somewhat sceptical about what role marketing had to play in developing the business, but the strategy and regular campaign activity have been instrumental in achieving our growth and goals.
— Phil Graham, Managing Director at Sensible

Turner Scott Lettings

We’ve used Neil’s services for a number of years, particularly on the social media and client communication side. He’s always done a great job, on time and within budget but more importantly, he brings ideas, words and images together to make sure the message gets across perfectly. Highly recommended.

Great Impressions

I approached Neil of Creative Lakes at the beginning of the year, seeking advice and ideas about how to best market my business. I was impressed with his pragmatic, results-driven and measured approach. Fortunately, we were also able to qualify for match funding, which has enabled me to invest in an 8 month program of direct marketing activity with Creative Lakes. These campaigns have generated sales enquiries as well as a far greater awareness of my services amongst my target client base. As a result, I also have a subscriber base of over 3,000 contacts to which I can regularly share information and offers.

One of the best things I have done is employ Neil Corrigan from Creative Lakes to help me with my marketing. I use him freelance and pay him a retainer. Any ideas I have I pass to him and he helps me achieve them. He deals with my email marketing campaigns - from dealing with the data and designing the content, my website content and making sure I keep on top of my time management. Having Neil on board means I’m not wandering in the world on my own and I can do what I love - capturing everyone’s best side.

Beckmead Guest House

I was recommended to speak with Neil at Creative Lakes by one of my trusted business contacts. Following an initial consultation, we started working together to better utilise the key strengths and resources of my business. These included extracting over 600 email contacts from my inbox to create a regular series of online communications. Neil has also overseen the updating of our brand and the delivery of new signage and business cards, plus the writing of the Beckmead ‘story’ for use in our marketing materials. Neil’s advice and support over the last year has been a great help to me and my business, and I would be happy to recommend Creative Lakes to any one looking for professional and cost-effective marketing services.
