About Us

Sharp Ahead is a B2B digital marketing and transformation agency specialising in lead generation for ambitious, growth-led clients.

We focus specifically on companies with complex products and services, who need to reach specialist decision makers and stay connected with them throughout their decision-making cycle. We drive sales leads through website, search engine, and content marketing.

83% of B2B buyers look for a supplier online. We make sure they find you there–ahead of your competitors. We then turn them into qualified sales leads through smart online marketing you can measure.

Based in the Thames Valley, Sharp Ahead was founded in 2014 by John Woods and Robert Stevens. Both are 15+ year internet industry veterans who wanted to bring the latest tactics in consumer internet marketing to B2B marketers.

What can we do for you?

Digital marketing can bring improved results to even the most traditional of businesses. The Sharp Ahead team of digital experts can offer you a solution if:

  • You are considering a new website.
  • You want to make sure you get found online before your competitors.
  • You need to reach a niche audience, including buyers and principal decision makers.
  • You need to maintain customer relationships and stay connected throughout a lengthy or complex consideration and purchasing cycle.
  • You need more promising sales leads from new and/or existing customers.
  • You need to understand how your customers behave online and where to find them.
  • You need to measure and analyse the results of your digital marketing efforts.

How do we do it?

First, we’ll help you identify your online marketplace and find out where your potential customers are.

We then use this research to create a bespoke digital marketing strategy, helping you make contact with your various audience segments.

Utilising a blend of paid search tactics, targeted landing pages and inbound content marketing techniques, we’ll build awareness of your brand, keep you in the forefront of your customers’ minds during their decision-making cycle and acquire high-quality leads. We apply these same techniques to increase sales amongst your existing customer base, through CRM optimisation.

We track and measure the performance of every element of your digital strategy and use these insights to continually improve and refine.
