about

Xtrahead is your second set of eyes to help you identify your real marketing needs. The listening ears are quite something too, but we thought we’d save you from coming across a picture of those.
We write great words which your customers will want to absorb and act upon.

Sometimes extra hands are just not enough…

We’re marketing-minded, so our thinking cap is always firmly in place. Having worked in UK and international marketing for over 20 years, we’ve plenty of experience to call upon right across the marketing mix including branding, online and offline activities and media relations.

We’ve got vision

But we’re straight-talking and very good at getting things done too. It’s what our customers value the most, because they know that our intelligent, partnership approach will deliver a real sense of ownership without gobbling up too much of their time.

Make us ‘one’ of your team

Perceptive, practical, professional and personal. We’re really used to fitting in and are very hands on. We won’t break what’s not broken. We won’t re-invent, but will help you re-visit, if that’s what’s appropriate.

The ‘one‘ is Lindsay Want (Lindsay Want-Beal) – an Oxford graduate and linguist turned tour operator, who quickly migrated into the world of marketing in the early nineties and has been getting on with things ever since.

The driving force behind overseas marketing for the East of England and brand developer for the region as a tourism destination, she stepped out as Xtrahead in 2007 to do more writing and find inspiration across a wider range of sectors including businesses intrinsically-linked to her beloved Suffolk countryside.

Two or more heads are better than one

That’s our over-arching philosophy and that’s why we think you’ll find us a cost-effective critical friend.We respect relationships which work and are happy join forces with your existing service providers such as designers, webbuilders or PR agencies where things make sense, in order to integrate your marketing approach and make everything work harder for you.

But friends are also the reason why Xtrahead talks about itself as ‘we’.

As an individual, the X factor behind Xtrahead can deliver loads from strategic marketing thoughts to concepts and ideas and great words and pictures, but together with trusted and talented colleagues local to Suffolk, Xtrahead becomes a one-stop, cost-effective shop which can get on with making a real difference to your business.

Meet us face to face

We’d so like to introduce ourselves more personally and whenever possible, we value meeting our customers personally -  so please do give us a call.

Xtrahead is based in  inspirational Suffolk, in Framlingham – renowned for its castle and dancing goat.
It’s a great place to be and we’d like to introduce you to that too.
