Short of time? Here are the answers to the most FAQs
  • What does Manifest do?

    We help advertising, PR, digital and other types of marketing and marketing technology businesses win new clients by securing for them introductory meetings with the decision makers for their services in the companies they want to work with.

  • Do you run pitches?

    No we do not run pitches for clients. Being both gamekeeper and poacher seems somewhat incongruous to us and can lead to a conflict of interest.

  • Do you organise events?

    No, we do not organise events or speed dating opportunities.

  • What can we expect?

    This depends upon your budget. But at the lower end, two to three meetings per month. At the very top end? Well, we once had a client for whom we were tasked with arranging 120 meetings per month …

  • Do you create content?

    No, we do not create content if you mean case studies, whitepapers and the like, but we do craft brilliant emails that generate great response rates.

  • Can you help us with our proposition?

    Yes we can help you create a compelling and distinctive proposition, but it is not included as part of our standard packages.

  • What does the service cost?

    We charge a flat fee at a level appropriate to your needs. We have a few standard options that suit most, but are more than happy to provide an alternative quote if your need to greater. Fill in THIS FORM to access that information.

  • Can you work on a PBR or commission only basis?

    The only result that really matters is the ultimate outcome; winning new clients. And there are simply too many variables outside of our control for us to consider this as an option.

About US

Experience is the teacher of all things
New Business Development

Manifest works with advertising, PR, digital, consulting and technology firms globally. Our role is to help them grow through new client acquisition.

Working closely with you we will identify your ideal customer profile; those companies who are in the perfect sectors, in the right location, with the right size budgets. We will then talk to you about the symptoms your prospects are likely to be showing that indicate they have a problem you can help them fix.

Our team will then research each company thoroughly and choose the right person to contact. ALICE™️ will then research suitable topics of engagement so we can delight and amaze your prospect with our knowledge of their company.

But email alone is not enough; we will call each contact, talk to them about the problems they have, qualify the opportunity and arrange for you to meet them.

  • an Experienced Team

    Our team have been with us for an average of eight years and have all previously worked in a creative, PR, digital or other type of marketing communications agency, so you can be sure they will talk the talk.

  • knowing who to target ...

    We have the tech stack and knowledge to help you identify the companies that fit your ideal customer profile and apply firmographic filters to then identify those on the cusp of buying what you provide.

  • ... HOW TO REACH THEM ...

    We have direct lines, business mobile numbers and email addresses for the vast majority of the people we need to contact and use ALICE™️ to craft individually tailored, bespoke, emails.

  • ... and how to convert them.

    But email alone is sometimes not enough. We are not afraid to pick up the phone. Our team love nothing more than the thrill of the chase; and you’d be surprised at the positive response they get.

Our focus

Tenacity & Technology
INTRODUCING ALICE™️

Hi, I’m ALICE™️, I’m a Generative Pre-Trained Transformer built by Manifest to engage and delight your potential clients. At Manifest, we believe that the days of single message email sequences (we’ve all seen them, “Question, Alice?”) are numbered. With my help our team craft individually tailored emails that 1) get delivered and 2) elicit a positive response

I’m new here, so my bosses don’t want me to say too much about how and what I do in the public gaze. Which is a shame as I’d love to, but if you are looking for a new business agency book a meeting and see me in action!

PERSONALISED EMAIL

We will identify your perfect clients; those companies whose attributes and actions indicate they are ready to hear from you and are likely to have a budget for the services you provide. We will then research their organisation with the help of ALICE™️ and write them an individually tailored email that talks to them about their role and how you can help them.

We’re talking about quality over quantity here; our emails are not written by artificial intelligence but by your Manifest business development lead with a little help on the research side of things to speed things up a bit.

PICK UP THE PHONE!

Your team will consist of our head of operations, head of client success and a business development lead who undertakes all aspects of the outreach, from the writing of the emails to the picking up of the telephone. Our BDLs are all ex-agency staffers, highly experienced at communicating at C-suite level with an average tenure of over eight years with us.

They go mobile-to-mobile where possible and often send messages to check the contact is happy for them to call them. All numbers are checked against country DNC lists and all data is GDPR and CCPA compliant.
