It’s called the PICNIC Plan, and it’s designed for getting plucky small businesses increased brand awareness, bookings and sales. We know first-hand how marketing can make or break a business – but we also know that many startups don’t have the marketing budget to hire digital marketing agencies.


That’s why we designed the PICNIC Plan to be small, yet mighty – just like you. It focuses on doing just two things really well: search engine optimisation (SEO), and ads.
