Our Story

Soap Studios

Content planning & production agency

 

We are a unique content planning and production agency, creating the highest standards of content, from photography, video & editorial, to social content, site blogs and marketing campaigns.

Our process is designed to deliver real value to you and your customers:

  • To bring your brand to life across the shopping journey with content that your customers need and value
  • To naturally incorporate your products into your content to build engagement, trust and sales
  • To improve the performance of your marketing and social channels

 

Our story

 

After years of running some of the UK’s biggest content production studios, for Tesco, Argos and Hangar Seven, we realized that most content wasn’t created with a true, strategic purpose.

  • It wasn’t driving conversion, by actively helping shoppers browse and navigate ranges
  • It wasn’t growing market share by delivering better shopping experiences than the competition
  • It wasn’t building engagement by being based on customer needs and insights
  • It wasn’t optimising channel performance to improve sales & profit

We believe its time for content to fulfil its potential to meet commercial and customer needs, and our goal is to drive significant change to the content production landscape.

This is why we drive profit with content

This is Soap Studios
