SWINDON-based C3 Marketing scooped Best Small Business, which was sponsored by MJ Church, at the Wiltshire Business Awards.

In an age where media advertising can be a stressful and time-consuming affair, C3 Marketing reduces the hassle, making it a far easier task for local business.

The company, based in the Equity Trading Estate, Swindon, prides itself on being completely customer-focussed with a burning desire to meet expectations.

Alison Wraight, co-director of C3 Marketing, said: “We are absolutely elated, it was a totally unexpected win. We spend our whole career trying to make sure our clients are seen in the public arena while we’re under the radar, and that’s how we want it to be.

“Tonight is really special for us as it shows that desire to put our customers first. We’d like to take credit for the fact we’ve won this award only for the amazing team around us, which includes four talented people who support myself and Sharon every day.

“We take pride in making people look good, whether that’s with the use of exhibitions, posters, signage, or anything else. We also manufacture in-house, which is quite unique.”C3 gives a unique telephone number to every client, which ensures the effectiveness of advertising can always be recorded, and that the company’s money is being spent wisely.

Mrs Wraight’s experience includes working in the print and marketing industry for over 25 years as a Print Production Manager and Sales Director for a large print group in the South West.

Steve Blower, from MJ Church who sponsored the award said: “C3 Marketing started in their garage and now runs a very slick operation from their purpose build premises.

“As judges, we particularly liked their saying ‘employ the will, train the skill’. They certainly have a can-do attitude and they also work with their local parish council to promote other small businesses.

“We liked their humble approach whilst giving an aid of confidence in that they had the ability to do what they say they would do.”
