[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1486550030271{padding-right: 30% !important;}”]At Area 213, we believe in understanding a business problem before we set about advertising. Without this knowledge, there is no clarity. Clarity is the cornerstone of good communication and it’s a trait that stands tall in a complex world. Our management consultancy arm uses applied theories such as systemic thinking, behavioural economics, mathematics, neuroscience and decision theory to make your life easier.

Then, we set about the execution phase. A communications solution is varied and tailored to your needs; it can be a tried and tested ad campaign, a paid media strategy or even a completely novel product built from scratch. We’ll work together to determine the ideas, technology and innovation that will your brand forward.

We believe in working closely with clients to make big objectives come to life. We’re not just a marketing agency, but a partner to clients who want creative solutions.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/gem_fullwidth][ultimate_img_separator animation=”No Animation” animation_duration=”3″ animation_delay=”0″ animation_iteration_count=”1″ img_separator_position=”ult-bottom-easy-separator” img_separator=”id^243|url^http://area213international.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/separator-1.png|caption^null|alt^null|title^separator|description^null” img_separator_gutter=”19″ img_separator_width=”desktop:70px;”][gem_fullwidth background_parallax=”1″ background_image=”480″ padding_top=”100″ padding_bottom=”100″][vc_empty_space height=”400″][/gem_fullwidth][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1485727892021{margin-top: -36px !important;}”][gem_fullwidth background_position_vertical=”center” background_parallax=”1″ background_image=”323″ padding_top=”100″ padding_bottom=”100″ background_parallax_overlay_color=”rgba(255,255,255,0.61)”][vc_custom_heading text=”What we do” font_container=”tag:h3|font_size:36|text_align:center|color:%23000000|line_height:1″ use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_empty_space height=”20px”][vc_row_inner equal_height=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1486061362117{padding-right: 5% !important;padding-left: 5% !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][gem_textbox content_background_color=”” padding_top=”15″ padding_bottom=”15″ padding_left=”0″ padding_right=”0″ content_text_color=”#565656″][gem_icon_with_text icon_pack=”material” icon_shape=”hexagon” icon_color=”#000000″ icon_border_color=”#409faa” icon_material=”f114″ icon_background_color=”#ffffff”][vc_column_text]

Advertising campaigns

Whether it’s print or online, we’re passionate about advertising. In the past, we’ve worked at some of the biggest agencies in the world, on Hollywood shoots and indie productions, so we’re comfortable no matter the scale or budget.[/vc_column_text][/gem_icon_with_text][/gem_textbox][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][gem_textbox content_background_color=”” content_text_color=”#565656″ padding_top=”15″ padding_bottom=”15″ padding_left=”0″ padding_right=”0″][gem_icon_with_text icon_pack=”material” icon_shape=”hexagon” icon_color=”#000000″ icon_background_color=”#ffffff” icon_border_color=”#409faa” icon_material=”f59e”][vc_column_text]

Video content

Videos are tough to get right, but once you do, they’re incredibly effective and hugely valuable. The good news is that they’re comparatively cost-effective for the returns they generate.[/vc_column_text][/gem_icon_with_text][/gem_textbox][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][gem_textbox content_background_color=”” content_text_color=”#565656″ padding_top=”15″ padding_bottom=”15″ padding_left=”0″ padding_right=”0″][gem_icon_with_text icon_pack=”material” icon_shape=”hexagon” icon_color=”#000000″ icon_background_color=”#ffffff” icon_border_color=”#409faa” icon_material=”f3f8″ icon_color_2=”#ffffff”][vc_column_text]

Editorial and Search Engine Optimization

Advertorials are an underrated form of advertising. We work with publications in the UK, Americas and Africa to speak to your audience. Plus, our SEO specialists are able to deliver fresh content to your website. In our view, blogs aren’t used enough. And if the content is optimized correctly, it’ll increase your website traffic exponentially.[/vc_column_text][/gem_icon_with_text][/gem_textbox][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][gem_textbox content_background_color=”” content_text_color=”#565656″ padding_top=”15″ padding_bottom=”15″ padding_left=”0″ padding_right=”0″][gem_icon_with_text icon_pack=”material” icon_shape=”hexagon” icon_color=”#000000″ icon_background_color=”#ffffff” icon_border_color=”#409faa” icon_material=”f108″ icon_color_2=”#ffffff”][vc_column_text]
