Choosing to work with Big Fish was as much about personality as capability. Our core drive was to increase awareness of the DataHub and its innovative sector capabilities to leisure operators generally. Big Fish provided us with the connections and access to the right channels to drive this awareness. With support on our social media management too, we were able to create a bigger profile for DataHub. Big Fish has been instrumental in the accelerated growth of the platform through intelligent and strategic PR, identifying the right partnerships and opportunities that suit our brand. The team are a pleasure to work with and really take time to understand the requirement and get under the skin of our business to deliver a truly personal, focussed service. Big Fish are considered a virtual extension to our team.
Big Fish are totally flexible to our needs, meaning we can hand things off with total confidence. They are always only a phone call away and willing to give their truly honest opinions on what will / will not work. Given the experience they have in this sector this honesty is something I highly value. The Big Fish team have also supported us in developing our social media platforms - particularly Instagram, LinkedIn and Facebook. Jo was instrumental in highlighting the need to have a presence on Instagram and managing the launch of the Precor channel, which now has a steady following. Jo has clear expertise in growing engagement on social and provided Precor with detailed tips and recommendations, by platform, on how we can better use social as part of our wider marketing strategy.
Having worked closely with Big Fish PR for the last seven years in my previous company, I cannot wait to work with them again in the future to support my new business. Their work ethic is second to none. Always open and honest, and professional to challenge what has been requested if they feel there is a more cost effective and improved potential outcome from the investment. They work at speed, whilst missing nothing out, and deliver on point every time. All this made a huge difference to my previous company, allowing us not to get bogged down in the Marketing/PR minutia, but most importantly enabling us to grow at speed whilst keeping it under control. A valued asset to any organisation - existing or new - your investment will not be wasted.
Like many marketing teams, we had lots of amazing stories about our customers, staff and developments, but the large volume, alongside all our other tasks made it somewhat overwhelming. We needed to get our positive, life changing stories and core messaging in the media for all to read. We needed support and PR expertise; an extension of our team. Big Fish PR have enabled us to bring a fresh and innovative approach to our content and deliver our messages to our customers, reflecting our brand values. Abi and Sarah understand who we are! Nothing is too much of an ask. They are part of our Trafford Leisure team, and enable us never to not miss an opportunity to share a positive story. They always deliver on time, on budget, on brand and to a very high standard.
They have provided a mix of traditional and social-based communications, which have seen some dramatic results.
They have a wealth of experience in our sector and always manage to get us exposure when others couldn’t.
It is one of the best business decisions I have made.
Designing is a matter of concentration. You go deep into what you want to do. It’s about research. The concentration is warm and intimate and like the fire inside the earth – intense but not distorted.

A lot of consumers actively enjoy advertising, especially fashion print ads and clever TV commercials. The nostalgic cable channel TVLand features not only vintage shows but also vintage commercials.

We sell tea in Starbucks, but I think the experience is very different. I think coffee is something that is very quick – it’s transactional. I think tea is slow and more Zen-like. It requires a different environment.
