Clientversary: BBX UK

BBX Logo.png

This month we are celebrating our one year ‘clientversary’ with the team at BBXUK!

We began working with BBXUK back in September 2018, when they came to us to promote the online business tool to the media and raise their profile as a community whereby users can exchange their goods and services with others on the platform.

Over the past 12 months SBPR has worked on a strategy designed to keep BBUK in the media all year long. As part of that strategy, the team at SBPR have sourced BBXUK case studies to pitch to press, have come up with a number of creative feature ideas designed to highlight BBXUK as an option for SMEs, and have profiled key members of the team to position BBX as an expert in the industry.

SBPR has achieved 16 pieces of coverage in total for BBXUK over the past year in targeted business and franchise titles as well as consumer publications. Coverage has been featured in key business, trade and franchising titles such as Global Franchise Magazine, Real Business, Elite Business, Elite Franchise Magazine, SmallBusiness.co.uk and UK Fundraising as well as some prominent consumer coverage in titles such as the Mail Online by pitching a case study of a couple who used BBXUK to save £20,000 on their dream wedding. This feature proves that B2B clients can secure space in consumer media, this feature alone reached over 2 million people and had an advertising equivalent of over £53,000!

The SBPR team have thoroughly enjoyed working with such a prestigious franchise and cannot wait to continue working with BBXUK for the next 12 months.

We are super excited to be working on The Upside Gallery Project which will transform the grey pillars that support the Wessex Way in Bournemouth into an amazing creative space of colourful art by world-famous mural artists!

 

This ground-breaking initiative, conceived and driven by Bournemouth-based creative agency, Paintshop Studio, and supported using public funding by Arts Council England, aims to showcase the wide variety and incredible talent that has risen from the street art and graffiti movement to show how art can transform and reinvent spaces.

 

We will be helping spread the word and raise awareness about the fantastic project which will be permanent for visitors and locals to enjoy as they pass through the area.

 

Our good friends at Greenwood Campbell are also working on the project to provide a mobile gallery guide which will be launching on Sept 28th and will allow visitors to the gallery to scan QR codes and access more information about the concepts, artists and progress pictures.

 

The art installation will commence on Monday 9th September and the final gallery will be ready to view on 22nd September – we can’t wait to see it!
