A refreshing take on digital marketing

Digital media services based in Brighton, leading the UK

Our Beginnings

Now celebrating NINE YEARS of Bamboo Nine!

We were born on July 3rd 2014 as a two-man band in a small rented room next to Preston Park train station.

Fast forward to today, we’re proudly situated in the heart of Brighton filling the top floor office as a fifty nine-member orchestra.

Delve deeper into the story of Bamboo Nine as we reminisce on our journey and look ahead to the future.

Our History

Our story is unique.

We set up Bamboo Nine after growing frustrated with working for agencies who rely on smoke, mirrors and jargon to win and retain new business.

Their lack of passion or concern for the clients’ best interests never sat right with us.

So, we put our money where our mouth is and decided to do something about it.

Think ‘Jerry Maguire meets Rocky’…

Kind of.

About Us

The first question clients ask is:

“Why call yourselves Bamboo Nine?” 

So, let’s clear this up! Bamboo is an organic, natural plant. It is strong, flexible and trusted for many things. We didn’t want to pretend to be something we are not. We want to be organic in our own growth and be a brand people can rely on. The ‘nine’ came from the fact we initially offered 9 services. A more tenuous link, but one we are claiming, is our initials are, therefore ‘BN’, as is our postcode.

We are different, but you’ve heard this all before?

Winning the trust of a new client is difficult enough, so the least an agency can do is fight tooth and nail to keep their business. This is what spurred us on. Not just to talk a good game but to deliver one.

We set up Bamboo Nine because we believe we can be better as people first, and an agency second. We could be more transparent, we could be more collaborative, we could be more engaged.

So, we decided to do so.

Our people, our clients, our hard work and our passion.

Our success can be attributed to four things – our people, our clients, our hard work and our passion. Once a business becomes a client of ours, we do everything in our power to make sure their campaigns are a success. This means not only do we need experienced and skilled people but these people also need to be committed and engaged to be the best they can be.

Client relationships.

Client relationships are at the forefront of what we do and going the extra mile is second nature to us. We keep our word. We operate on a rolling contract basis. Our clients stay with us because we meet their needs, on a financial and human level. We don’t want to tie anyone down to a contract if we are not delivering on your ROI or on our service.

This is who we are

Each and every one of our clients own their accounts and therefore, all their own data. They also pay the publisher (Google, Bing, Facebook etc) direct, meaning that, unlike most agencies, we don’t take a margin on the spend. We are not a “middle person”.

If you pay the publisher direct, you can rest assured that every penny you invest is going towards your advertising and not our pockets.

Lastly, our bespoke reporting continues to justify our management fee. We break down every hour spent working on your behalf, so you know where your fees have been invested. We don’t just report on what has happened, we take the time to explain “why”. This shows accountability.

If you’ve got this far down our ‘about us’ page, then maybe all you need to do now is give us a call?

Ian, Bamboo Nine Director

What our clients have to say

“We have had the pleasure of working with Bamboo Nine for nearly two years and I would definitely recommend them to anyone out there looking for a reliable and knowledgeable marketing agency. The great thing is that you get an account manager as well as team of specialists and they are all aware of what is happening with your brand, what campaigns are running and where and they are also able to secure good pieces of PR.”

City Fertility

“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Bamboo Nine; they did exactly what we asked them to do and more in a very short space of time and it was a pleasure working with Zak Pashen, Chris Rivera and their head of Technical, Chris Johnson.”

Ian Parrish, Bourne Leisure

“I have been extremely pleased with the quality of lead generation that our PPC campaign has given us. We are consistently visible on the first page of Google for all of our targeted search terms and the fact that over half of our business comes from google shows how well it works. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Bamboo Nine to any escape room looking to increase online visibility and sales because they definitely know what they’re doing!”

Phil Harris, Pier Pressure

“Bamboo Nine’s attitude of never settling and always looking to outperform their previous years achievements for me makes them one of our best business partners and an organisation that shares our pursuit of excellence within the online marketplace.”

Tom Cullingford, R4R

“Chris, I just wanted to let you know how fantastic Luke has been. All of your team are always so quick to respond and get things done but given the current circumstances he’s been truly amazing (and Steve with the bits he’s been assisting with too). Of course not forgetting the rest of the guys; Denise has been great as always too, implementing our EHB restructure today and advising us on our PPC at this uncertain time. You really do have an awesome crew!”

Lucy Hunt, Oak Frames Direct

Daniel Ives, Burlingtons

“We have worked with Bamboo Nine for over 4 years and they are always on the end of the phone and happy to answer questions we have, not just PPC questions! Their customer service is honestly amazing and we see Chris as a part of our business. Our campaigns are run ever so well and long may our relationship continue.”

“Since I’ve worked with Bamboo Nine, our Google Shopping campaign and PPC campaign has improved drastically and we now get the leads in to the business that we want and need, rather than just clicks to our website. The guys are always on the ball and always contactable and due to the success of my PPC campaign, I have introduced Bamboo Nine to other companies with my full recommendation.”
