Why are we called Cornerstone?   ‘Something of great importance that everything else depends on.’  

That’s how we view a well-executed marketing strategy. A solid and early foundation from which a business can truly grow and flourish. Whether you’re a small start-up or a global brand it’s an essential part of the build. From there on, your success is set in stone.

Kirkham Property

We have been working with Cornerstone DM for a few years now and utilise their services for most of our media work. We initially approached them about a rebrand and after conducting detailed market analysis they came up with a few options which were all an evolution of our existing brand and better helped to communicate our service offering to our clients. They managed to bring together Kirkham Property, Legal & Financial under one brand and continue to help us with our website, SEO, point of sale, social media, print adverts and any other media work in general. We recommend David and his team and look forward to working with them for many years to come.

Cornerstone provide me with incredible value and are a delight to do business with. Whether they are delivering a social media workshop or creating a mental wellbeing campaign I always sense that I am working with people who really know what they are talking about. I honestly can’t recommend them enough.
