Building pipelines
and reputations



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.

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.

The first touch point is a ‘phone call, but if we are unable to connect then we will write an email or LinkedIn message tailored specifically around news items we have discovered about their business that are relevant.

We then call them again until we speak with them; it is this human touch that makes us special and is only possible because of our policy of only employing seasoned ex-agency staffers.

  • 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 craft individually tailored, bespoke, emails around agreed subjects.

    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.

Short of time? Frequently Asked Questions
  • What does Manifest do?

    We help advertising, PR, digital and other types of marketing and marketing technology businesses build both their pipelines and reputations by professional representation of the very highest level. We don’t just secure new business meetings for you – every touchpoint with your prospects is an opportunity to enhance your reputation, don’t allow it to be squandered or worse.

  • 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?

    On our PREMIUM package, for example, we would be looking to provide an agency wanting clients worth at least £100k in revenue p.a. with a total annual pipeline valued at £4.8m ($6m) per year. In order to estimate what this would mean for your business, divide that pipeline value by your win rate from initial new business meeting.

  • 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. HERE is a link to our pricing page.

  • 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.

  • What makes Manifest special?

    An agency’s brand is of paramount importance and should not be placed in the hands of inexperienced “cold callers” who could do more harm than good; the person who represents you from Manifest will be a seasoned ex-agency staffer who talks the talk as well as walking the walk.
