Specialist marketing agencies team up to offer clients powerful combined service

Bristol influencer marketing agency Fourth Floor has teamed up with a Bath consultancy to power-up its offering to clients in the gaming, tech and entertainment sectors.

Fourth Floor and Bath-based specialist marketing agency Dialect have both experienced significant growth over the past year due to new client wins and from digital audiences, who have consumed more content than ever through lockdown. 

Last year, the combined efforts of the two agencies reached an incredible 1bn views from consumers interested in content from gaming, tech and entertainment brands.

Fourth Floor is a specialist influencer marketing agency dedicated to building relationships between brands and content creators.

Dialect’s creative division develops world-class branded content for many of gaming’s biggest brands which its media team deploys to engage the right audiences with the right message at every stage of the customer journey.

By teaming up they can share insights and analysis to greater evaluate and track campaign performance and success and offer combined fully integrated marketing services across paid, owned and earned media.

Fourth Floor is headquartered in Bristol with offices in Bordeaux, Toronto and Brighton. It was launched in 2017 by Rich Keith, who previously worked at Bath-based media group Future as a publisher and editor, and as chief revenue officer at Bristol-based Yogscast, the social video company behind the world’s largest gaming YouTube channel.

It specialises in helping brands reach consumers by building partnerships with influential social media content creators to produce branded content that engages audiences and builds emotional connections.

Its services include campaign planning and managing, advocacy programs, event management and merchandising solutions all driven by its proprietary insight engine technology. Fourth Floor’s clients include Ubisoft, Square-Enix, Wargaming, Frontier Developments, Turtle Beach and SEGA.

Last year it appointed Robert Price, the former MD and SVP of home entertainment for 20th Century Fox UK, as chairman.
