A modern digital marketing team should have a broad spectrum of skills and knowledge, and that’s exactly what we have here at HPE.

Nothing showcased that better than the work we carried out for our clients in March. We covered everything a good digital marketing team should cover, from blog posts and YouTube videos to SEO and Twitter posts to Google Ads and Facebook promotions and much more.

And it’s not just the range of services we offer, it’s the diversity of our clients which also illustrates our skills. Agriculture consulting, recruitment agencies, SaaS, industrial, B2B, FMCG, charities… the list goes on.

No matter what your business, no matter where your digital presence is, we can help. Our team of experts have a rich history of copywriting, online marketing, Google Ads, Social Media experience, and much more.

Here are just a few of the projects we worked on in March.

New website for Shower Doctor

The Shower Doctor is a family-run business based in Auckland and Hamilton, specialising in shower repairs, including doors, glass, seals, rails and trays.

Dedicated to customer service, Barry and his son Alex believe in making a good first impression when serving their customers, with Barry working in the home improvement and building supply industry for well over 40 years, gaining a reputation for providing excellent customer service.

After recently going out on his own, Barry came to us for a new website. Starting from scratch, we worked with our developer on layouts, calls-to-action, images and forms. While that was going on, our team of copywriters created all the content for the site, and once it was built, we optimised for Google’s stringent SEO requirements.

Preparing to go live, went through our pre-launch checks, and once the site was up and out there for public viewing, we checked everything was good with our post-launch checks.

Now the site was built, populated with copy and images, and optimised for SEO, it was time to begin promoting across the main social media platforms and the web. We’re off to a great start with two great blog posts, and the client couldn’t be happier with the results!

Workshop strategy for Ata Regenerative

Ants working together

Ata Regenerative help farmers use not only sustainable practices, but regenerative ones, bringing our soil back to full health.

As the only official Savory Hub for New Zealand, Ata is committed to teaching the next generation of farmers how to use regenerative practices, through initiatives such as their Regenerative Design Lab Program and their Regenerative Leadership Program.

The Regenerative Design Lab is a hands-on transformational workshop that will help you unleash your inner designer! It’s an opportunity for you to design your project, team, or organisation using a regenerative, living systems approach that will ignite your regenerative vision and become a leader in regenerative design.

The Regenerative Leadership Program is a 12-week program that encourages you to engage in practice alongside change-makers, CEOs, entrepreneurs, artists, students, and creatives worldwide to build your foundation; develop your ability to adapt and evolve; grow your capacity to persevere; cultivate your community of support, and ultimately realize your unique genius.

We helped by creating both those landing pages, as well as a couple of blog posts on both topics to spread the word. Both landing pages and blog posts were optimised for Google and promoted on various social media platforms.

40 Foot Consulting full digital strategy


Back before Christmas, we worked on a project for IT recruitment agency, 40 Foot Consulting, creating the content for a new website. Of course, the work doesn’t stop there.

Continuing on with their digital strategy development, we have been constantly optimising their site, building and implementing a social media strategy, and creating blog posts.

We’re also advertising the site through Google and Facebook ads, tweaking where necessary to gain the best results with the highest return on investment.

The results have been fantastic, with 40 Foot happy to admit we have exceeded their expectations!

We help with blog posts,  social media management, MailChimp newsletters, Owners surveys, website improvements, hui Q&As, YouTube Zoom videos, reporting and more.

All of this work has led to a massive lift in visibility, website visitors, social media results and engagement with owners at a critical time in development.
