Southern Enterprise Awards 2023

SME News Southern Enterprise Awards 2023 | 100 Best Emerging Digital Marketing Agency 2023 - South West Based in Cheltenham, Content Chef is a small content marketing agency equipped with a proven recipe through which it helps drive the growth of clients’ businesses, personal brands, and agencies. Since its establishment, the company has rapidly grown and transformed from a solo freelancing adventure into a fun and vibrant agency with a team of talented professionals. Having spent several years working as a copywriter and marketer at various brands, Daryl Charman, Founder and Director of Content Chef, was inspired to branch out on his own and share his signature style with the content marketing world in 2017. His successful ventures as a freelance copywriter developed and soon led to the formation of a thriving boutique digital marketing agency in Cheltenham, which he named Content Chef. By 2021, the business had transitioned into a limited company. Over the past two years, Content Chef has helped various local and global businesses, brands, and agencies to build an online presence and increase their revenue through authentic storytelling. To this end, the company has provided them with a range of services, including copywriting, blog writing, SEO, social media management, email marketing, paid social ads, PPC, website design, and content marketing strategies. In its work, Content Chef continues to use the same recipe that kickstarted its success, which is centred around taking a direct approach. Daryl and his team strive to cut out the jargon and unjustified prices to provide a transparent, authentic, and genuine service. They always put the client first and ensure that everything they do is purposeful, with the clients’ profit at the forefront of their minds. Content Chef understands that each of its clients have a different set of needs. For this reason, it strives to offer multiple levels of support, encompassing everything from strategy to delivery. Its diverse team of content specialists work to take the pressure off its clients by leveraging the power of language and marketing to provide them with tangible results. As an agency focused on authentic storytelling, Content Chef believes that its growth can be attributed to the fact that more and more businesses are coming to understand the importance of personal branding. They have noticed that modern consumers and clients can see through the rigid, stuffy approach to marketing and sales that is often used. As a result, many SMEs and startups are seeking Content Chef’s services to help add life and personality to their content. Part of this involves writing personal LinkedIn posts for the client’s key figures and rewriting their website content to ensure that it is optimised but authentic in equal measure. With Content Chef, clients know that they will receive unparalleled oneto-one treatment from a socially driven marketing team that consists of people from two generations: Gen Z and Millennials. This young team of professionals provide them with marketing strategies that work well with the emerging generations. In the years to come, Content Chef is keen to serve more local businesses across Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, and Somerset. To accomplish this, it will work to expand its reach by using social media, engaging in PR efforts, and networking via Cotswolds Networking Group. It plans to showcase the excellent results it has achieved for its clients and highlight its unwavering commitment to authentic storytelling. As it strives to obtain more customers, Content Chef aims to grow at a pace that does not compromise the quality of its work or the wellbeing of its team. In this, it hopes to create a team of employees that is big enough to provide a comprehensive, rounded service offering, but small enough to maintain the personal touch and vibrant fun environment that the company has become known for. Moreover, internally, the company plans to continue to develop people-first processes, invest in social activities, and start giving back to the community through charity work. As a result of its continued excellence, Content Chef has been named Best Emerging Digital Marketing Agency, South West, in the Southern Enterprise Awards 2023. With ambitious plans for the years ahead, there is no doubt that Daryl and his team look towards a bright future, and we look forward to seeing what they will go on to accomplish.
