Standing out in a crowded market place – Zoom Recruitment

Zoom Recruitment is a recruitment agency based in Kent who had approached the team at Oxygen to help them develop a way to stand out from the crowd within the recruitment industry.

We helped zoom by rebranding their current logo and creating a new website for them with added functionality.


The team at Oxygen helped develop and design a new mobile responsive website for Zoom with some unique features that give them a competitive edge in a crowded marketplace. Zoom needed something that would communicate and integrate with their existing systems and therefore communication was key to this process.

Zoom’s old site was unfortunately subject to a malicious hacking. As standard with the development of their new site, we provided them with additional security to ensure this doesn’t happen again. By installing software to run alongside the new site it added another level of security that helped to make the team at Zoom feel more protected against this level of exploitation in the future.

Job Boards:

The larger recruitment sites such as Reed and Monster are cluttered with recruitment agencies and employees pitching jobs to prospects.  This makes it difficult to stand out from the crowd as a recruitment agency due to the sheer amount of jobs being posted. Oxygen helped develop a job board that is personal to the jobs that zoom upload and provided this on their website.

The integrated job board means that clients trying to find a job using the Zoom Recruitment website will only be able to see the jobs that

7 Tips For Stealing The Show

Business success is dependent on the knowledge of your clients. Customers will not want to seek out your business. They will want businesses that are familiar and available to them.

But how do you do that?

Trade shows or exhibitions are a great avenue to promote your business, your brand, and your products and services. They offer the chance to interact face-to-face with current and potential clients and are a great way to showoff the products and services on display. Use this form of marketing to gain sales leads and create more profit.

7 Tips for stealing the show

1. Research

Research trade shows well in advance to determine which show is right for you and your business. It is important to think about the amount of businesses attending the exhibition, the average number of attendees and whether your competitors will be trading. It could also be a good idea to interview past exhibitors and ask for their feedback to give you a rough idea as to what to expect.

2. Registration

Once you have decided which trade shows you would like to participate in, register with the organisers as early as possible. Many trade shows allow for easy registration online and some offer advanced registration discounts, saving your company hundreds if not thousands of pounds.

3. Attention

You need to attract the potential clients to your stand through free promotional items, literature, and interactive elements such as demonstrating a product. Choose a theme for your exhibition space and be sure to make it engaging, interesting and fun.

4. Objectives 

Set objectives for yourself and your staff. Create a list of achievable objectives

Hospitality Christmas Promotions

Now, I know what you’re thinking. Christmas in May?!

It may be 7 months away, but for businesses that specialise in the hospitality sector, preparing for Christmas this early is extremely important. Now is the time to be creating a Christmas marketing plan and breaking it down into weekly managable tasks including who does what. Why start now? Because the sooner your event is planned, the less pressured you will feel. Try not to be the one that leaves it to the last minute.

Across the industry, preparation is key. Chefs need to begin deciding on their delicious menus, information should be displayed on the website along with the booking terms and conditions. Also, by allowing early bookings and accepting deposits for a table which not only will secure the booking but may prevent a cancelation. Which leads on to my next point: event space. If you are planning on theming your Christmas events, make sure you source your decorations and props now as they will be at a discounted rate.

Oxygen Graphics are currently working with Brownsover Hall and Draycote Hotel, in Rugby, in regard to their Christmas promotions. This means that they are already prepared for their busiest time of the year.

A little snippet of what’s to come from Draycote Hotel’s 16 page Christmas brochure designed by Oxygen Graphics.

This three panel folded brochure showcases all the events and menus available over the festive period last year at Brownsover Hall including champagne & canapés, a five course meal, a firework display and a Scottish Piper!

Exhibition & Display Stands


The Exhibitions & Displays range has launched and offers a complete solution for all types of indoor and outdoor events, promotions, trade shows and exhibitions.

“I received more enquiries about my promotional banner at a recent show than the product I was selling. The impact is amazing!” was one customer’s feedback.

The range includes fabrics displays, flags, gazebos, pop out banners, PVC banners, roller banners, posters and ‘raw’ material.

Fabric Displays are made up of two main components – a strong, lightweight, tubular, aluminium frame and a printed fabric cover. The 260gsm ‘stretch’ fabric cover is printed on both sides as standard. Designed to fit tightly over the frame, it is secured at one edge with a zip fastening. The fabric cover is washable, changeable and additional covers can be ordered separately.











These ‘next generation’ displays deliver maximum impact and completely eliminate the problem of visible join lines on the larger displays.

‘Raw’ material are fabrics (polyester, vented, stretch, backlit and flag) in an unfinished state that can be used for different applications such as table cloths, flags, building wraps, backdrops and light boxes. They can be purchased by the metre.

All fabric products are fire retardant and meet B1 and M1 safety standards.
