Terms and Conditions
Working with a marketing consultancy can be an immensely rewarding, cost-effective experience for busy business owners, new entrepreneurs and growing teams. We add expertise, anecdotes and practical support when you need it most.
Working with clients across the UK; we pride ourselves on providing a reliable and innovative service to help you work towards your goals. If you are new to hiring a third party to work with you on your marketing, or have reservations about doing so, we invite you to contact us directly for an informal chat.
How we work with clients
You can hire Bumble and Bloom Media on a retainer or one-off project basis. This could be assistance required with a new product launch, a revamp to your social media marketing strategy, getting started with email marketing or on-page SEO. We work with clients on everything from a one month project to five years' marketing support to grow their brand and manage day-to-day marketing.
Our minimum project time is 8 hours per month, and its 3 months minimum for retainer clients. We book client work into our diary at least a month ahead.
Our working hours are Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm. If we are on deadline, or in a client meeting, please leave a message and we'll get back to you within 24 hours.
How we could work together
We are based in the North East of England, but work with closely with clients across the country via Zoom, Teams, email, conference calls and face-to-face meetings. Our carbon footprint remains one of our highest priorities, notably when booking face to face meetings. If it can be done successfully on Zoom/Teams, we welcome the opportunity to save energy and minimise our carbon footprint.
We want all of our clients to be excited to start work together and feel confident that we are the right person for them. We also value our staff time, so for projects over £520, we request a 25% non-refundable deposit as a way to secure our services and as part of our zero-tolerance for fraudulent or spam enquiries.
We operate with integrity, there are no hidden costs or surprises when working with us which is why we share our rates upfront. We charge clients on either a half (4hrs) or full day rate (8hrs). Our daily rate is £520, half day rate £250. Please note our minimum project time is 8 hours per month. Our fee reflects not only our expertise, but crucially, pays a living wage to our staff.
We invoice clients on the 30th of the month. If this is a weekend or Bank Holiday, we invoice the next working day. As a small business with costs to pay of our own, we request all clients pay invoices within 5 working days of the invoice date.
We ask all clients to digitally sign an agreement prior to starting work together so everyone is clear about priorities, expectations and costs.
We want you to feel confident that we are the right person to work with, which is why give clients a 48 hour cooling-off period after this document is signed should they wish to pause or stop the contract before any work begins. Should you wish to terminate this contract after the cooling-off period, you will be liable to pay the contract agreement fee in full to ensure we do not incur lost income due to booking this time in our diaries for you.
Our time and expertise is our greatest asset, which is why for projects above our £520 daily rate, we respectfully request clients pay a 25% non-refundable deposit to secure our services. This will be taken off your invoice at the end of the month.
For monthly only projects, we give clients a 48 hour cooling-off period after signing our pre-start agreement should they wish to pause or stop the contract before any work begins. Should you wish to cancel this contract after this cooling-off period, you will be liable to pay the contract agreement fee in full to ensure we do not incur lost income due to booking this time in our diaries for you.
In the case of retainer projects, we ask for 4 weeks' notice in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us that you wish to terminate our contract together. We understand that business has ups and downs and budgets can change very quickly and do our best as a small business to protect both your business and ours.
