So, what could a credentials document do for you?

Targeting a specific audience, a credentials document will demonstrate the capabilities of your business, the services you provide, the impact your work can and does have, and why your audience should choose to work with you.

A significant aspect of the credentials document is to include examples of your best work – hero pieces you are proud of! EDGE Creative can help you choose projects that were most successful and display them with clear objectives and results explained. A great way to further support this is by adding client testimonials. This way, prospects can relate to the benefits of services, and therefore will be more likely to engage with you. There’s nothing better for business than a good review!

First impressions are crucial so the document needs to be well presented, on-brand and relevant to your audience. EDGE will work with you to ensure your brand is represented correctly and make you and your company really stand out – it’s what we do best!

Put yourself in your clients’ shoes for a moment. If you wanted to outsource a service, what would you want to know? Our personalised credentials documents outline who you are and what you do as well as feature case studies of successful projects, testimonials, and an attention-grabbing call to action. We can guide you on what your clients really want to see and piece together the perfect proposal tailored to your target audience.

Social Media Account Manager

Jo first joined the EDGE Creative team as a Digital Marketing Assistant. Several years and hundreds (if not thousands) of bottles of Pepsi Max later, she now makes up part of our office’s “Content Corner” as a Social Media Account Manager, bringing together her social media knowledge combined with her writing skills.

With her impressive level of music knowledge, Jo can regularly name a song and tell you an unnecessary music fact in less than 3 seconds from a song starting. This often takes all the fun out of listening to the radio in the office, but it’s certainly a talent, nonetheless.
