Poke Marketing, a new creative advertising agency has launched in Liverpool offering clients a different approach to marketing.

Focusing in on genuinely transforming businesses through utilisation of creative and strategic marketing the agency also has an agile payment structure, basing fees on hitting KPIs rather than on time.

The agency, formed in the middle of the pandemic, is made up of a group of people, and friends, who have worked together at other agencies over the last fifteen years. Andrew Binns, Mark Harrington and Nicola Docking have all worked with each other at Rippleffect and Ashfield Healthcare before splitting off to work for Havas (Andrew) and Uniform (Mark). They form the senior leadership team of Poke, along with Paul Culshaw, Head of Search who was recruited from CTI Digital. The agency currently has 8 members of staff and is embarking on a recruitment drive to meet client demands.

The agency is backed by investor Sean O’Neill from Adore Group and has already secured a number of clients including Liverpool’s Writing on the Wall, estate agent Sexi Property, celebrity and luxury wedding dress boutique Florianni, Brazilian band Bianana and Liiift, a Business Change Management company. The agency’s proposition and portfolio can be viewed at

“…the talent we have within Poke is something we really wanted to harness. With creativity at our heart we have already delivered some sensational copywriting, design, branding, digital and marketing work…” Mark Harrington, CD

“…having worked most of the last 5 years in New York and across Europe it is fantastic to come back to Liverpool and deliver amazing work with talented people who I also consider my friends. To be honest I grew tired of the traditional agency client relationship where the focus is on always looking to try to bill more hours. Instead I wanted to create a set up where agency and client are working together towards the same goal, more like an internal marketing team. So far so good…” Andrew Binns, MD
