Your brand is your greatest asset, at C2 Business we engage of course with you but, more importantly, we engage with YOUR END USER…our job is to ensure they find and interact with YOU….

the digital challenge


We are more connected than ever with the web via our 4G smart phones and tablets, but as digital users we are more demanding and opportunistic with our time and disposable income. The result is less engagement, lower levels of loyalty and a loss in revenue.

But, as we evolve as digital users there is also opportunity. If we can design and deliver the perfect user experience we can successfully shape behaviour and retain customers for the long term.


affordable and effective marketing solutions

As a truly hybrid Marketing Agency in Derby we successfully marry the perfect combination of Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) qualified marketers with a team of highly skilled creative visionaries. This perfect people mix allows us to discuss and design how best to market your brand and then hand over to our design team to bring our vision and strategy to the screen.


Design is about turning heads and engaging with someone new, not about how cool something looks.

When questioned people often believe that if something looks cool then it must be good, but that is not always the case, it’s simply style over substance. Consumers very quickly catch on when things are not as they seem with a brand or proposition. At C2 of course we like to design things that look great and work on ALL devices but more importantly we design output that captures the imagination and drives people to opt in and engage with you...Style And Substance.
