There’s innovation, too, across the services we offer direct to local businesses - with our expanding portfolio of apprenticeships focusing on occupations where demand for skills is greatest.

Place marketing is a key part of the BID. It will provide a strong platform for promoting what Hemel and local businesses have to offer, from markets and events to news and special offers.

My Mustard - Business to Business 

My Mustard logo

We all use Google because we know, like and trust it to deliver the best results. Google makes its money by showing ads called AdWords or sponsored links. That’s what we do all day, every day and have done since 2007. We work with dozens of clients who know that Search, Display, Remarketing, Shopping, Mobile, YouTube and Gmail campaigns are key parts of their marketing strategy and outsource their campaign activity to us for efficiency and peace of mind. My Mustard clients also enjoy the benefits of LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pay-per-click advertising opportunities.

The recipe for My Mustard is pretty straightforward: Take eight professional women, two rather splendid young men, a joke-telling pig-rabbit, the world’s biggest search engine, some forward-thinking customers, and mix well. Add hours of number crunching, extensive market research, some seriously creative writing, a lot of patience, a bucketful of tenacity and a bit of luck. Sprinkle with endless enthusiasm and serve hot.

“The winner is the chef who takes the same ingredients as everyone else and produces the best results.”

We work really hard and are nice people to do business with. We realised on day one that we can only do well if our clients do well so we try to stay focused on their success at all times. We really like what we do and it shows... and we always play to win.
