Burnley based e-mail marketing experts Wired Marketing have been awarded a grant of £36,000 from the Lancashire Business Growth Fund (LBGF).

The grant helped them buy new premises in Kestrel Court Business Park allowing them to continue their exceptional growth for the next 5 years – and creating 4 new jobs in the areas of Sales, Marketing and Training. There will also be an on-site training facility.

Wired Marketing is expert in helping businesses use e-mail as an effective marketing tool to build their brand and increase relevance of their offering to their target markets. They are currently the only company delivering this service in the North of England.

Over the past five years Andrew Hardman of Wired Marketing has built the company following extensive e marketing experience in a number of high tech businesses – one of which he successfully grew from scratch and sold later to establish Wired Marketing and focus on the current area of specialism.

The LBGF fund was recommended to Andrew by Andrew Botham of Mayes Accountants in Accrington. Mayes have acted for the company since the business began in 2011 and have also provided business growth support using their unique Business One Page Plan.

Andrew is delighted with the grant and support he received from the LBGF team, said:

This has allowed us to find the perfect accommodation to develop and move our business forward. We can now accelerate our ambitious growth plans and enhance our reputation. Our aim is to offer a cost effective marketing solution to businesses in the North, from the North which is currently only offered by London based companies.”


The Regional Growth Fund-supported Lancashire Business Growth Fund is a programme offering capital investment grants and international trade support to businesses across the county.

The programme is intended to create 600 new jobs and safeguard a further 200.

Its key aim is to accelerate the creation of sustainable jobs by encouraging companies to bring forward growth projects on a bigger scale with a larger impact at a time when those jobs are most needed.

Businesses bidding for grants from the scheme can claim up to 20 per cent of the total project costs with the remaining costs leveraged from the bank or investment.

To be eligible for the programme, projects must involve the acquisition of new premises, infrastructure, machinery, expansion or another suitable form of capital investment.
