People don’t passively consume advertising and marketing in the way they did even a few years ago – you can now play an active role in shaping how your business is perceived. Basically, good brands don’t simply talk at people anymore; they interact with them. With our promotional ideas and concepts, we discuss and come up with simple and effective tools for you to get your ROI.
Do you know who is talking about your brand and what they are saying? We help brands to listen, understand and engage in conversations. Using the correct type of Marketing can be an incredible tool for a business, providing you with more customer insight, direct communication channels, and the ability to measure the effectiveness of these conversations closely.

Social media is comprised of many different platforms. Rather than trying to participate in all of them we recommend that clients begin with one or two that seem to make the most sense. Our social media programmes include: Facebook, Blogging, Instagram, Tumblr and Twitter. Traditional one-way media channels are no longer enough if you’re going to engage an audience.
Over the years we have compiled a number of compilations for the music industry including Ministry of Sound, Universal and Absolute Music. We have worked with many artists, record labels, distribution companies, radio pluggers, music PR companies and studios. We have represented a number of artists and released a few tracks in the mainstream market. We have advised another of media and music companies on how to break into the asian market, and vice versa. We have a down to earth attitude yet know the industry inside out.
With Shaanti’s expertise and knowledge of the music scene, help us tap into the market with confidence. Their professionalism sat snugly against their down to earth attitude and their innovative PR and marketing skills took the project to another level which made this compilation a international success.Duncan Collins (Ministry of Sound)

What was also excellent was their cutting edge fusion of live and remixed music inter-cut with iconic film imagery.’Cary Sawhney (British Film Institute)
Shaanti brought a different perspective and added an extra dimension that would not have been found elsewhere. Shaanti acted professionally, delivered beyond our expectations and we look forward to working with them in the future.'Andy Anderson (Channel 4 Ideas Factory)
"Shaanti is one of the most forward looking clubs in the world. It has its roots in one genre, but is always pioneering new sounds and thus forever evolving and keeping things interesting. For any serious music lover anywhere in the world this is the place to be right now.'Martin Morales (Outcaste Records)
‘If one thing defines Birmingham club Shaanti it isn’t the sounds imported from the subcontinent but a rip up the rulebook approach that could only have come from the UK. Featuring grime, dub, hip-hop and drum’n’bass with an Asian twist and a punk attitude, this is the most exciting and vital cultural crossover since The Clash discovered reggae.Dj Magazine
