It’s not the bottom line that drives us, but the desire to satisfy and provide the very best service we can to our clients.
It might sound a bit cliché, but we would much prefer to keep a happy client for life rather than just work with brand new clients each time. Our ethos is what drives us, and makes Polo & Tweed one of the (in our opinion) friendliest and eager to please agencies. Why not try us out and see for yourself? We aim to reply to email/calls within 24 hours, and when you call us you won’t get through to an annoying call centre or computerised systems.
