“The most successful marketer becomes part of the lives of their followers. They follow back. They wish happy birthday. They handle problems their customers have with products or service. They grow their businesses and brands by involving themselves in their own communities.”

These are the words we live by in everything we do. At our digital marketing agency in London, we eat, sleep and breathe the brands we work with. They’re at the centre of everything we do. A great testimonial tells a story – one that inspires and motivates.

We have been working with RED marketing since 2010 at which point our company was significantly smaller. 13 Years later, and now the largest independent distributor of Comsetics in SA with our own in- house PR department, we still use RED to manage PR specific projects for us from time to time, and enjoy working with them. RED offers a wide range of expertise and delivers consistent results.

CEO - Cosmetix (Miss South-Africa 2002)
It is with pleasure that I write to advise that I (along with my teams) have been working with RED Marketing over the last three years in the various shopping centres under my portfolio. The RED Marketing team have shown consistent and considerable support in multifaceted marketing disciplines that stretch beyond what they ultimately describe in their list of services offered. The RED Marketing team have never hesitated to stretch themselves into unchartered territory for our teams in order to achieve more than the ordinary and much more than most would. We take pride and do appreciate their involvement in our brainstorming days where they challenge us to go further, and the outcomes are truly inspired. Our marketing initiatives require knowledge and work into very different community types across the country; from high end urban centres to the township vibes; the RED Marketing team have stepped up and served these communities with the best every time; from social media page management to appropriate and well-structured design to media bookings that pointedly maximise the right exposure in the right places across both print and digital platforms. Nothing has ever been too much trouble and they all enthusiastically step up and help us step forward. We have been privileged to be able to work with RED Marketing and only wish them strengthened success into their bright future.

Kelly Carmichael
Asset Manager Retail - Fortress Fund
We initially approached Daniel and his team to design our website. However, after seeing RED Marketing's high quality work, we asked them to design brand-new labels for our Commercial, Free-Range and Value-Added lines as well. The team's designs really uplifted our entire brand and we've been receiving amazing feedback from customers! Plus, their turnaround time was quick, which meant that we were able to get our product on the shelves, looking great, much sooner than we had anticipated. We've since approached RED Marketing to assist us in designing truck branding and email signatures, and will definitely use them again for any future projects. It's been a joy working with the team.

Sales Manager - Jaguar Land Rover
RED Marketing is one of the first PR agencies I engaged with over a decade ago. I met managing director Daniel Calbacho when I attended a swanky event they hosted for one of their clients in Johannesburg, whilst I working as online editor for a magazine. I remember being drawn to Daniel’s ability to “command the room”, which in hindsight is a perfect trait to have when running a communications agency. Having remained in the PR and marketing industry all these years later, we’ve maintained a close working relationship, making RED Marketing a team that I’ve always been able to depend on. The support received from RED Marketing — while managing a number of local and international brands in my role as marketing manager for a fashion retail company — made a substantial difference in the prioritisation of my daily tasks. I always felt that I could rely on the team to carry on with what they were commissioned to do without needing to hold their hand. RED Marketing supported me for over 5 years with general PR duties, social media management for one of our international brands, content writing and event management. The team’s knowledge of digital marketing practices added value in growing our digital footprint. What’s more, knowing that they were within reach at any time of the day was of great comfort to me. Always professional, always reliable and always willing to go the extra mile is the service I’ve received from RED Marketing. I’d most certainly recommend them as a leading communication agency.

Property Manager of Legacy Group
The famous words “ain’t no mountain high enough” from Marvin Gaye come to mind when I reference the incredible service RED Marketing provides. They’ve demonstrated utmost dedication and professionalism over the years that we’ve worked together. The team continues to enormously grow our digital footprint through engaging, data-driven content. The team adapts very well to not only clients’ requests, but our customers’ requests and input. I can call on them anytime with new ideas and strategies, which they’re always ready to help bring to life. RED Marketing’s work speaks for itself. I started seeing the proof in the pudding when our competitors mimicked our social media pages’ style and texture of communication to suit their messaging. Evaton Mall is now the leader of the pack!

Ajinder Kaur
Owner of Ghazal
I worked with RED Marketing for several years in my capacity as Communications Manager of Sandton City Shopping Centre, where the RED team handled all the social media for the shopping centre. They were a pleasure to work with and consistently delivered great work, which resulted in a substantial increase in the number of followers and the amount of engagement on our social media pages. The RED Marketing account executives were enthusiastic, grasped our brand well and had an in-depth understanding of our requirements. They were dedicated to providing original, quality content across all platforms. In fact, a more dedicated team you won’t find (in every sense of the word), as they always put us first; willingly and cheerfully working weekends and after hours as the job required. They were also experts in crisis communication and excelled in guiding and advising us. I have nothing but praise for Daniel and his team, and would not hesitate to recommend RED Marketing. They’re by far the best digital marketing company I have worked with!

Kerry Phillips
Former communications and PR Manager of Sandton City
I recently decided to go ‘online’ and give my business a social media presence. Not knowing much about marketing and advertising, I felt completely lost in my attempts to promote myself on social media. Trying to employ different people for different tasks didn’t work very well as it was difficult for me to coordinate everything myself. But after meeting with Daniel, I started to see the light at the end of the tunnel. RED Marketing is a very well-organised agency that can take care of literally everything that makes one feel professionally promoted and advertised. It’s supported by young, enthusiastic professionals who are always ready to assist you and translate creative ideas into innovation. I’m so impressed with the efficiency, availability, creativity and flexibility of the team, from the photographers and graphic designers to the website developers and social media content specialists. The communication is easy and I’ve never experienced such fast-growing numbers of followers on my social media pages. I’m stress-free and well taken care of. Thank you RED Marketing - now I’m able do what I love and simultaneously build my brand in an extremely professional way!

Dr Eva Siolo
Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon
Starting a company during lockdown was daunting enough for me. So many things were happening at once: clients wanting deliverables, broadcasters needing episodes and suppliers waiting to be paid. However, my business had no online presence... I needed a website. I heard about RED Marketing, and the rest is history. I have never in my life worked with people who are so on top of their game. Daniel and Carissa were so spectacularly professional; a trait that’s not very common these days. I cannot tell you how absolutely blown away I was when I saw the mockup website within just a few days. A pure feeling of pride overcame me, along with a sense of I am going to take over the world with my new website!

Owner - It's Real Media
We recently approached RED Marketing to assist in creating a new website for our 3 companies under the Planet Holdings umbrella. We had lost faith in PR Agencies due to previous poor experiences which caused a lot of stress and left us significantly out of pocket with little to show for it.
South African based PR agency RED Marketing recently opened a branch in London. We set up a Teams call with their director Daniel and web designer Carissa to provide a brief of our new website expectation. From the offset Daniel and Carissa were extremely pleasant and professional to deal with. They instantly seemed to comprehend our brand and were invested to meet our website and overall marketing needs in a very short time frame. RED Marketing literally provided a website template for us to review wihthin 3 days. We were truly impressed with the efficiency of their work, the creative design and their valuable input. It was a refreshing change to deal with such a professional company who are totally committed to fulfilling our expectations. We can highly recommend their services as we continue our relationship into the future of our companies growth.
