Meet the team helping companies grow, Cultiv8 Marketing
GTN Xtra Promotion


Since establishing in 2018, owners of Cultiv8 Marketing, Rob Giles and Alex Giles have been helping companies grow using bespoke marketing packages designed to get the best return from their marketing budgets. 


Formerly called Stratrg Ltd, Cultiv8 Marketing offer marketing and branding services, with many of their customers operating in the home, garden and pet industry. Having over 20 years combined experience in marketing and product management roles in these industries, Cutliv8 have developed an agency that understands the ins and outs of working in these markets.


This includes having the flexibility to work with differing budgets and delivering to tight timescales. With excellent market knowledge, Cultiv8 are well placed to help you create better marketing whilst sharing your goals to help you to grow.


Rebrand or Refresh

Whether your need is to rebrand or even breathe life into your current offer, Cultiv8 Marketing can help. This can be for one off projects or an on-going resource to help continuously improve your content and communications. 


Lydia Grayston, Marketing Manager of Sipcam Home & Garden said:

‘Working with Cultiv8 is a joy. Rob and Alex bring so much innovation and knowledge to our marketing campaigns. They are happy to take on any new challenges we set and execute everything they do with the highest level of creativity, going that extra mile to ensure they meet even the tightest of deadlines. They successfully manage our social media platforms, creative design and are always at the forefront of our marketing campaigns which included a major re-brand project last year. We no longer see them as our marketing agency, but very much part of our team.’


Launch or Develop

Trained in professional marketing, Cultiv8 Marketing can help at differing stages of product life cycles. You may have a brand-new idea that you need bringing to market, requiring a solid communications plan. At the same time Cultiv8 can breathe life into new product development projects by delivering new packaging and fresh content ideal for your target audience.


Emily Scruton, Brand Manager of WHM Pet Group said:

‘Rob and Alex have produced videos, editorials and managed our social media over the past year and a half for us. With great attention to detail, they’re always collaborative and coming up with new, engaging content to help promote our brand. Also working extremely well under tight deadlines, Rob and Alex have become part of the team in helping contribute to the marketing strategy and overseeing it being successful.’


Big or Small

Cultiv8 have worked with start-ups, new overseas entrants to the UK market and established multi-national companies. Every business has differing resources and Cultiv8 pride themselves on being flexible and creative to provide the best return on investment possible to their customers. With fresh ideas and only your best interests in mind, Cultiv8 are an extension of your team and a flexible resource you can count on whenever it is needed.
