Being an independent marketing agency doesn’t stop us getting around.
We work with well-known hospitality businesses, from prestigious boutique hotels, to national chains, and everything in between. We also proudly partner with local tourism bodies, media and events organisations, and the best booking engine suppliers.
Whatever the size and scope of your hospitality business—we know how to help you thrive.
Expect to feel important at Clockwork
Because you are. We don’t hide management in meetings or leave you with someone you’ve never met once the ball is rolling. We introduce everyone working on your account from the get-go, and they will always be available to you. It’s disheartening to call up an agency only to hear another new voice. Nothing is lost in translation with Clockwork.
It’s a genuine team effort
We work collaboratively, bringing distinct skills from across our agency, paving the future of your brand and business.
Sometimes our revenue manager gets involved, analysing your revenue data and developing a pricing strategy. Other times a designer and marketing consultant may be required to shape your brand, or a data analyst to set up conversion tracking correctly.
You’ll have a single account manager as a key point of contact, but also a strong and familiar wider marketing team.
Going for B Corp
We are delighted to announce we've submitted our B Impact Assessment and have committed ourselves to become B Corp certified, which is changing the way we do business for the future.
We are acutely aware of the part we play in promoting tourism and its impact on the environment and local communities and we are striving to become a more sustainable business for people, planet, and profit.
B Corp Certification is granted by global, not-for-profit, B Lab, an independent organisation that defines the highest standards for social, environmental and governance best practice for businesses. B Corp is a rigorous certification process that examines every part of our business and our responsibilties to all our stakeholders.
Hospitality in a changing world
The values of society are changing.
People are concerned about the welfare of our planet in a way unseen before. Environmentalism and ethical consumption are playing a big part in their lives. However, our industry has a large carbon footprint and social media aestheticism is causing overtourism in flagship cities and beauty spots around the globe.
As we move into a new era, we must begin to think of hospitality differently, luxury and price alone will not entice tomorrow’s guests. They will expect a reciprocation of their green values and will hold businesses to high moral standards. Tourism will need to evolve too.
Bringing money into an economy won’t be enough—it will have to be environmentally sustainable, or ideally beneficial.
Whilst none of us can act directly on global issues, we can act locally and make sure we continue to change with the times. We’ve taken a step by supporting the Devon Wildlife Trust, helping to preserve the wildlife and nature in one of the UK’s most visited regions. This is a small move, but we are also looking beyond this to the future of our sector.
We want to support regenerative tourism projects enhancing communities and ecological health and encourage others to do the same.
We believe this pioneering approach is essential for the longevity of the hospitality industry and the greater good of our planet. The new paradigm is about giving, not taking.
Tourism for good
Tomorrow’s travellers will demand tourism businesses be inclusive, sustainable, and authentic. To meet these demands, we've teamed up with Plymouth-based, Soundview Media, and organised a new tourism event.
The Tourism Summit explores the theme of “Tourism for good” as a way to pursue a brighter, more sustainable future for tourism. The inaugural event in 2022 featured expert speakers, including former Eden Project Sustainability Director, Chris Hines, tackling everything from B Corp to future guest trends.
The Tourism Summit provides a variety of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices that hospitality businesses can use to futureproof your business and a new “Tourism for good” community.
