Manufacturing Marketing Agency


The Marketing Agency for Manufacturers

Manufacturing can be a tough sector to grow in.

With squeezed margins and competition marketing can be essential tool to stand out, increase revenues and survive in uncertain times.

Founded in 2014, by young entrepreneur Mitchel White, LeftMedia is a Manchester marketing agency working with manufacturing and performance businesses across the North West and beyond. Starting as a small graphic design business, the business has grown to become a marketing agency with specialist skills in branding, digital marketing and graphic design.

The LeftMedia name was inspired by the Left Bank in Paris, a place known for it’s “sense of bohemianism, counterculture and creativity.” This idea has led everything we do at LeftMedia.

Our mission is to make manufacturing businesses more exciting and profitable by creating memorable brands, effective lead generating websites and effective marketing campaigns.

Mitchel White

Mitchel White

Managing Director & Founder

I founded LeftMedia at 21. When I started the business in my spare bedroom I was working freelance, designing logos for £20 (sometimes a tenner) to feed myself. I was learning on the job. Learning how to design, how to win new clients, how to invoice, how to manage expectations and more important to survival, how to take a break whilst juggling all of the above.

It’s been a hard slog but setting up a business at a young age has it’s benefits. I’ve learnt an array of skills including passing my professional marketing qualification with the Chartered Institute of Marketing, which I am extremely proud of. This allowed LeftMedia to branch out into more skilled areas including digital marketing and brand development.
