About DME

Here's a little about us

Digital Media Edge was set up in 2015 to share our expertise in digital and social media marketing with business across the UK. We are proud to have worked with large national corporate business and small start-up businesses across the UK, helping them to adopt a "strategy before tactics" approach to driving results from digital media through effective use of web, social media, mobile and content.

In 2016 DME started working in the Education sector with schools, to help them leverage digital and social media to connect and engage with their school community in a more effective manner. We could immediately see the massive benefits for schools developing a digital strategy, designing a school website to become a living "community hub",  embracing the power of social media to share day to day life in their school, creating remarkable content through images, videos and blog posts to tell their unique story and developing metrics to align all of this to drive very tangible results for the school.

Located on the University of Lincoln campus, situated in the heart of the historic city of Lincoln, we’re thrilled to be working alongside fellow start-up businesses as well as the University of Lincoln itself. Our specialist team is handpicked to ensure a wide range of experience and professionalism, no matter what the task.
