Who are we?

The story started back in 2009 in the corner of a front room. We have since evolved into a business spanning three UK offices and are now proudly part of the world’s fourth largest advertising and marketing group; IPG Mediabrands.

It’s been quite a journey, but we’ve kept our culture close.

Our enlarged family network has given our team the scale and global reach to work with brands of every size without boundary, as well as access to unbeatable tools and insight from experts in every corner of digital marketing.

We don’t rest on our laurels however. Having helped craft content marketing, our job is to ensure that it continues to develop into the powerful, business changing discipline it is. This means continually innovating to ensure that our approach, strategies and services lead the way.

Our Values
  • Passion

    Put quite simply, we have a voracious appetite to innovate and to deliver the very best service, at every opportunity. As a collective of experts across journalistic content creation, content distribution via PR and influencers, search and data, strategy development, design and development and videography; our collective passion is second to none.

  • Innovation

    We pride ourselves on our contribution to the digital marketing industry. This includes inspiring talks, cutting edge tools and thought leadership pieces, shared across the net. We hold content marketing at the cornerstone of our marketing strategy.

  • Expertise

    We are leaders and not followers. Our proficiency within the industry can be found in any direction online and has been recognised by professional bodies wide and far, as well as our clients most importantly.

  • Creativity

    Creativity is a huge part of content we produce at Zazzle Media, combined with cutting-edge data and visionary strategy, we deliver creative ideas which truly resonate with targeted audiences of value.

  • Empowerment

    Each and every member of the Zazzle Media team is accountable and empowered to deliver astoundingly good results for our clients. From ensuring our thought leadership is ahead of the pack, to driving a project through to completion, we pull together to do fantastic things for our clients.

  • Our Zazzlers

    Our culture is second to none. Our people make sure of this. Our Zazzlers are a family network of creative individuals who share a passion for digital marketing and know how to have a good time too! Often seen rolling their sleeves up for some fundraising, a spot of yoga, seasonal fancy dress or even a table tennis competition! Fancy becoming a Zazzler, take a look at our open opportunities.
