Bondholders build the Future together

Bondholder, video production and video marketing agency Future Proof Films has launched its brand new website, courtesy of fellow Bondholder creatives Frogspark
The new visually-led website will help boost Future Proof Films’ online presence, as well as showcase the video specialist’s growing client list, latest work and new Visual Marketing Subscription service.

The two Bondholders have teamed up several times over the years, supporting one another’s growth and progression within the city.

With video being at the centre of Future Proof Films’ business, it was essential for its new website to focus on video, whilst not compromising on loading times and keeping the design simple to navigate. Frogspark picked up the challenge and designed, developed and delivered a clean, crisp website that doesn’t just focus on video, it puts video first. The shiny new site is now the perfect online shop window for generating more leads for Future Proof Films as it continues to grow.

The website also sees the launch of a new service; the Visual Marketing Subscription service which arms companies with a wealth of visual content to strengthen or form their next marketing campaign. 

Drew Taylour-Davis, Director at Future Proof Films said: “Our new Visual Marketing Subscription service will help more and more companies take advantage of the power of visual content marketing, whilst negating unexpected marketing costs and the need for costly in-house production solutions.
"Frogspark have done an exceptional job in creating a website that will push our company even further and be pivotal in the growth of our business. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Frogspark for anyone looking for a bespoke website.”

Scott Clarke, Operations Manager at Frogspark Ltd also commented on the project: “Our key ambition whilst designing and developing this website was to ensure that it showcased the fantastic video work Future Proof Films have already created.
"It's always nice to work with other businesses locally to be able to develop and design a website that is very unique and specific to their brand; we hope this website delivers exactly that.”

Frogspark re-design Cathedral Quarter website

Bondholder Derby Cathedral Quarter Business Improvement District (BID) 
has partnered with fellow Bondholder web design and digital marketing agency, Frogspark, to  design and develop a fresh website that enhance Cathedral Quarter visitors’ experience in both on and offline capacities. 
Frogspark worked hard to engage users and develop a site with the Cathedral Quarter's partner businesses in mind.  

The new-look website is part of Derby Cathedral Quarter BID's new re-launch of its popular loyalty scheme with additional features making it easier for those who work and visit the area to benefit from special offers at local businesses.

The new website is clean and crisp and provides a perfect platform to find out more about the products and services available within the Cathedral Quarter. With a Google maps integration to provide a personalised experience, and provide access to exclusive offers, the Cathedral Quarter website couldn’t be more accessible for the user.     

Ashley Lewis, Senior BID Project Manager at The Business Improvement District, said:  “From start to finish it has been a pleasure working with the team at Frogspark. Whatever our  requirements, they have proved to be professional and knowledgeable in all aspects of  design and maintenance and have been extremely helpful throughout. We are really pleased  with the new website and hope that both visitors to the area and Cathedral Quarter  businesses will find it a useful resource for many years to come.”

Scott Clarke, Operations Manager at Frogspark Ltd also commented on the project: "Being a Derby based company with strong connections in the CQ area, we were very excited to be tasked with creating a new website that would serve as the perfect platform for businesses to be able to promote their events and offers to the many visitors the area has  every day. We hope the people that visit Derby use this site to easily and conveniently  discover the many fantastic businesses that have so much to offer.".  

Frogspark Achieve Record Q1 Sales

January marks the end of the first business quarter for Bondholder Frogspark and it show’s to have been a profitable one; with their turnover up by 118% compared to 2017 and profits up by 110%. Having secured contracts with the likes of NHS, local councils and some Major firms across the Midlands. Their web development and full suite of digital marketing services are helping businesses from all sectors grow and develop continuously.

Rob Twells, Managing Director, at Frogspark has said: “The first quarter of this business year has seen us work with some fantastic clients that I could only dream of working with. Working with such a great team achieving fantastic things really solidifies our decision to take the leap and start the business when we left University”

As they work towards their growth plan, Frogspark have opened up 5 new positions to help them further grow their team to 14 digital marketers and web developers. To accommodate this expansion the whole team will be moving office, which they hope will soon be accommodating the team of 30 planned for the next year. With a projection of 100% growth over the next year, the new office will help drive the business to a new level.

Frogspark's Rapid Growth

Bondholder Frogspark is continuing its rapid growth by hiring six new full-time members of staff. Amongst the new hires are two digital marketing executives, and three new web developers.

Martyn Locker joins the team as the new front-end web developer, after exiting his freelance career to put his knowledge into a more sustainable environment.

Frogspark has also expanded its capabilities by adding digital marketing services to its offer. This side of the business has quickly picked up interest from clients and rapidly matched the successes of Frogspark's web design services.

Rob Twells, Managing Director of Frogspark, has expressed his determination to “continue at the current rate of growth” over the coming years.

Frogspark's Innovative Approach

Bondholder Frogspark has secured a partnership to work with DIMEC, a unique app undergoing a massive overhaul to help modernise the way doctors prescriptions are collected.

Following investment from Chee Wong - the previous CTO & COO of popular apps Shazam and Hailo – DIMEC will be working with Frogspark to produce a brand new website.

DIMEC was developed by Chris Turner & Andrew Bailey, two pharmacists who noticed the hassle ordering and collecting a prescription creates for many people.

Rob Twells, Managing Director of Frogspark, said: “Our team has been busy creating a number of amazing websites for a diverse range of clients and businesses and we are very excited about out work with DIMEC.

"The intended outcome for the website is to help bring onboard new users for the app whilst building on its existing user base and pushing the app to the next level of popularity.

"Frogspark has benefitted from an outstanding period of growth, with several new contract wins and the appointment of two new digital marketers to support our expanding client base. As our expertise has developed, our digital marketing campaigns have become stronger, more sophisticated and efficient, supporting our clients’ businesses to reach the next level.”

Frogspark's Rapid Growth

Bondholder Frogspark is celebrating the rapid growth of its web and digital marketing team, by welcoming three new team members in the space of one month.

Since November, the digital marketing agency has created three new positions and moved to Derwent Business Centre to accommodate its growth. The new additions include an SEO and PPC expert and two web developers.

Because of the increasing demand for digital marketing, Frogspark introduced Paul Smith to the team, as a Digital Marketing Assistant. Paul has a degree in English Literature and a master’s degree in Creative Writing.

Frogspark’s turnover doubled in just one year which meant the development of the web team was crucial for the business to carry on growing.

James and Josh, a front end web developer and a full stack/php developer were brought in to increase Frogspark’s capacity for new projects and to bring fresh ideas to the company.

Rob Twells, Director, said: “Liam and I are extremely happy with the new Frogspark members! They each bring a great set of skills to the business which are going to be very valuable to future of Frogspark.

“The new digital marketing expertise we now have in-house means we can offer the full package to each of our clients."
