We are thrilled to announce that BrightWord is turning five years old!
Since our head brightling Rachel started the marketing and PR company back in 2011 we have grown and grown and there has never been a dull day! We are now lucky enough to have a huge variety of wonderful clients who keep us busy bees all day long and we couldn’t love it more.
To celebrate our anniversary, we have narrowed down some of the top BrightWord highlights so far…
Of course the leading highlight has to be winning our first ever client! Being part of the re-launch of Anthony Sinclair, the original tailor to James Bond, was a dream come true and we are proud to say that the brand has gone from strength to strength ever since!
Over the years we have enjoyed managing many successful launch campaigns including the re-opening of the historic New Theatre Royal in Portsmouth and launching one of the most sought after wedding venues in Sussex, the beautiful Southend Barns.
Another of our greatest moments was beating many other established agencies to deliver a coveted SEO project for national superstore ASDA.
We have also had the privilege of working with some well-known local names such as Goodwood, West Dean College and Chichester University, and have been lucky enough to work on many fantastic projects. One in particular that stands out for us was the organising and orchestrating of our first ever festival for The Blacksmiths. It was a lot of work, but the pay off was fantastic with over 500 attendees, and amazing coverage and promotion secured for the client.
Recently we have started working with more and more brands within the wedding industry, a sector that we particularly enjoy. This includes Cred Jewellery, pioneers of the Fairtrade jewellery industry. As well as the beautiful pieces we get to promote, we are also loving being part of the cause to raise awareness for the importance of Fairtrade, helping to make ethical jewellery the rule as opposed to the exception.
Another of our biggest highlights has been seeing the BrightWord team grow. In November 2014 we welcomed Rebecca on-board as Account Manager, she has become an invaluable brightling, taking on huge responsibility within the business and has quickly grown to be Rachel’s right hand woman. Then in November 2015 the team grew again with the addition of Louisa starting as Marketing Executive quickly followed by the arrival of our part-time Social Media Manager, Laionie. Growing such a reliable, hardworking, fun team has definitely been one of the most rewarding sides of Brightword’s development and has enabled us to take on many more fantastic clients and interesting projects.
So to celebrate BrightWord hitting the mid decade mark, our flock of brightlings will be visiting the wonderful Tinwood Estate for a tour of the vineyard and to sample some of their delicious sparkling wines. So cheers, here’s to the next five!
