The business is founded on a strong ethos that every child, no matter what their social, economical status should have the opportunity to receive private tuition. Their second belief is that learning should be fun. The more a child is engaged with their tutor, the more they will learn. That’s why they employ undergraduates or recent graduates to adopt their contemporary style of teaching. What’s more, every tutor is personally interviewed before being hired to ensure they align with the Manning’s core beliefs.

Despite having this great story, it wasn't being told.

Manning’s faced tough competition from larger tutoring agencies with bigger marketing budgets.

The website was outdated with poor customer experience (UX) design and no blog. There was very little social media presence.


They needed to increase the number of private clients by 108% and increase the number of school/academy clients by 25%.

They also needed to generate new business in pre-defined pockets of London with little current customer presence.
