Martyn Brown, the business owner has been online in the early stages since the 1980s, before the Internet as we know it today was in existence. His first website was built in 1994 again, before the Internet was used for marketing purposes the way it is today.
The selling of digital products came into being in 1998 and the business has been growing ever since.

Almost every business that chooses Marketing Bugle to build their online funnels and website, stay with them for many years as the service matches the results achieved ... success!
Although we do have pre-built packages for those that prefer to work that way, our usual strategy is to find out exactly what your business is looking to achieve and then put a package together that suits. It's no use paying for ten services if you're only going to use two of them.
Yes, Marketing Bugle was designed around the clients wishes and, doing your own editing was right on top of the list. We can do this for you but it's nice to know you can access your website and add your own content when you want to and know it'll look exaclty how you want it to look.
Marketing Bugle specialise in Social Media marketing, especially Facebook Ads. We also produce whiteboard video scribe promo videos as and when needed. We build complete Sales Funnels that are very successful as they use our bespoke specialist software designed for our use.
Marketing Bugle will only take on so many clients at one time. This ensures we have the time required to run your online marketing campaigns properly and effectively. We can change instantly when one of the online giants like Google change their alghorithms while larger companies take months on end before they can change their systems and train their staff about such changes. Also, Marketing Bugle use software developed just for them and that no other business have access to. This keeps us, and our clients, ahead of the competition online.
We have over 100 websites on third party hosting, however, Marketing Bugle have launched their own web hosting service (in December 2016) which runs on SSD drives, rather than conventinal hard disk drives. This means fast running websites that we are fully in control of. We back up your entire website (not just the database ... watch out for that trap), update the security the second an update becomes available and manage our websites 24/7.
Usually, from ordinary web hosting companies, your site is Shared-Hosting which puts your site on a server with 100s or even 1000s of other people's sites. This is bad for SEO, your IP address is Shared by them all, your site can be affected by other site's usage and malware attacks and a number of other negative attributes.
Marketing Bugle run the most secure and fastest hosting available exclusively for their own personal clients.
Nobody can guarantee that any particular campaign will be a success. However, at Marketing Bugle we are experienced enough to know about Split-Testing (running several different versions of the same Ad, for example) to see which gets the best reaction. Once we discover this, we invest in running the 'Control Ad' and get the very best out of it.
This is how we ensure that any funds invested in our marketing efforts get a great return.
Customer loyalty is built in to our email marketing, Bugle-Call and other systems that we run 24/7. Customer referral programmes work really well when they are automated and where we have subscriptions running into the 1000s for many pub/restaurants etc..
We use email marketing in almost every section of our business building. It works better than most online tools when used correctly. The email lists we build for customers are some of the most active in the world.
We never forget offline business. Although we are now pretty-well totally online, we cut our teeth with offline marketing and can still print hard copy magazines, fliers and design your Ads etc..
Automation is amazing when it comes to online marketing, however, some things, especially Social Media works best when it is performed on a manual basis. Marketing Bugle can do that for you and, also, schedule your posts to all of the top Social Media platforms.
Yes, big time! We have had developers design an Online Course portal in order to run this very aspect of your business.
Online Courses are very popular, to say the least and, if you have one, Marketing Bugle can sell it for you while allowing you to add content and edit it yourself at any time.
