Clear objectives and direction.

Concise plans and strategies.

Creative at heart.

Digital marketing and managing your online presence can be complicated, confusing and time-consuming, but we want to keep things clear and concise for you, as well as give you some of that time back. We’re problem solvers that have access to a full suite of digital & traditional marketing services and a deep network of partners and contacts, but we’re also creatives at heart and we want to understand your story, purpose and goals. 

Stanford & Turner can plugin with your team where needed and help you reach your goals, which could range from handling all your marketing needs… to simply pointing you in the right direction. 

We’re good like that.

OUR Proven Process

We have a proven process that sets us for success. Out of this process, we aim to truly understand your story and objectives, have clearly defined goals and objectives and a shared understanding of the scope and priorities. Here’s what it looks like: 


Discovery Session

This is where it all starts. We want to get to know you, hear your story and discuss your objectives and needs. This is where we get to know each other and get the information we need to come up with a plan.


Internal Conversation

From the information gathered in our discovery session, we’ll brainstorm, discuss options and ideas, as well as talk to our partners and our network, if needed. We want to think about things from all angles and leave no stone unturned.



Eventually, things get refined. So, we’ll take our ideas and put them down on paper. We come up with a deck and a proposal to show you how we think we need to move forward. 



Ideally, we get together and go over our proposal and have a team discussion.  What did we do right… and where did we miss the mark. Here, we change, tweak and refine our plan and, eventually, sign off on a final strategy.


Project Management

We go live… and we’re not one to set it and forget it. We project manage, which means we watch, guide, tweak and change as things progress.



When it’s done, there’s learning and recommendations. Hopefully we gain insights and data that we can use again.  The more we work together, the better we get.



While Stanford & Turner can handle the most technical, mundane aspects of a marketing strategy, being creative is at the core of everything we do. That’s because founders, Ted Stanford and Gemma Turner, have been in the marketing and advertising industry for a combined 40+ years, but it’s what Ted and Gemma did prior to getting into the marketing and advertising industry that drives that creative core. Ted’s background is in film and entertainment, while Gemma’s is in singing and songwriting.   


Ted Stanford

Managing Director

Ted went to film school prior to getting into the advertising industry, even winning some awards for films and screenplays that he worked on. Ted’s first job in advertising was in print, as a media coordinator at Hollinger, but he always maintained his interest in film, entertainment and the arts. His advertising career spanned across numerous media companies in a variety of roles, specializing in B2B marketing, revenue generation and business development.
