"We’ve been working with Danielle for over two years now. It feels like Danielle is part of the PMD team and from the start she immediately understood our brand and values. Working with Danielle is refreshing because PR can be a bit of a mystery. The biggest emphasis for us as a business has been securing coverage in the trade titles, which can be challenging. Finance is not a sexy industry, but Danielle has helped craft creative stories and angles for trade, business and local publications. This has helped to raise the profile of the business, as we’ve had a good reactions from the pieces. We also then communicate the press coverage on social media and our marketing channels, which acts as a double whammy as it provides content from that perspective too. We’ve recognised that PR is a subtle way of spreading the word. PR has given us exposure, but it’s a much more subtle way of doing it compared to marketing and advertising. It can be difficult with PR to show a return but we know our ROI (Return on Investment) is certainly positive. As for the fees, they are a good investment - we don’t see working with Danielle as a cost, but an investment."

"Danielle is always a pleasure to work with: professional; positive and extremely enthusiastic no matter how challenging the topic! We’ve seen some fabulous results both locally and nationally and I would recommend Danielle to anyone looking to make PR a significant part of their marketing strategy."
The Creative Branch
"Danielle has helped to raise our profile locally, with press articles including a big feature in Cumbria Life, a BBC radio interview and a number of topical editorials in the local media to tie in with Dying Matters Awareness Week. I first contacted Danielle in September 2017 when I read in the Westmorland Gazette that Bloomin’ Creative had just won 'Best Boutique PR Agency – Cumbria' in the North West Enterprise Awards, itself a testament to the power of successful marketing. Since then, she has encouraged us and cajoled us to be more professional and importantly more proactive with our marketing; we highly value her input and the fresh ideas she brings."

"Bloomin’ Creative has been among the best PR companies to work with. Clear communication is at the heart of everything it does. Danielle, the brains behind the agency, is a wonderful storyteller!”
“We’ve outsourced all of our marketing and PR activities to Danielle for over 18 months now. During this period, she has grown the following and engagement levels on all of our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram), created content for our blog and newsletters, publicised seasonal events and secured features in the press about the Sun Inn. We have regular catch up meetings to plan our quarterly activities, and Danielle provides detailed evaluations and analytics for the social media and PR campaigns. Throughout the time we’ve worked with her, Danielle has implemented a number of creative ideas for our marketing, which is vital in a competitive industry such as hospitality. We’d certainly recommend working with her if you’re looking to maximise marketing and PR for your own business.”

"Danielle at Bloomin’ Creative thoroughly researched my competitors and also analysed my own business’ online strengths and weaknesses. She produced a detailed, but easy to understand, plan of action and also a 12 month strategy which has proved to be a fantastic platform to grow my online presence and digital personality. What impressed me the most about Danielle was how quickly she understood my brand’s personality and business needs and the way she helped me understand how to translate that into the digital world to gain maximum exposure and brand awareness. I am now working with Bloomin’ Creative on a number of projects to develop my business further.”

“We’ve worked with Danielle in both a client and marketing partner capacity. Danielle has secured press coverage for Single Malt in our target publications and has helped us to raise our profile locally. Although the results of PR activity can be challenging to measure, we’ve had really positive feedback from both existing and potential clients who noticed us in the press. As a fellow Kirkby Lonsdale business, it’s always nice to work in collaboration with other local businesses and working with Danielle is no exception. We have some exciting projects in the pipeline that combine and blend Single Malt and Bloomin’ Creative’s marketing skills perfectly!”
"Working with Danielle was efficient and friendly; she kept to deadlines and objectives and communicated clearly throughout us working together. She was proactive in contacting numerous press; achieving some great local coverage for the Oubas brand in titles such as the Westmorland Gazette, as well as reacting to opportunities found online which got us featured in an article for the Telegraph Business! It was brilliant having her support and expertise through our busiest season.”
"I approached Danielle at Bloomin' Creative for help with a new venture I was undertaking. We were expanding our event entertainment business with the introduction of Sleepover Parties. There were brand new to the area and I wanted to reach as many people as possible in our target area so they could see and understand what we were offering, and how we could create a 'magical slumber party experience' and a 'sleepover wonderland' (those were Danielle's fab descriptions) in their own home. Danielle was great from the start, and understood what I was doing, and what message I wanted to get across, and she identified the best approach to get the most successful news coverage. When I met with her initially she listened to my thoughts, asked relevant questions and explored ideas. After she had drafted a press release she came back to me to confirm the details before releasing it. Danielle continued to find new outlets for the article online and offline, and also managed to get a podium piece published as an off-shoot of the original article. The price we paid for the work that Danielle carried out was a fraction of what it would have cost for an advert in the same publications. An article also carries a lot more weight than an advert so it was a win-win, and well worth what we paid. I would have no hesitation is using Bloomin' Creative again for any other publicity needs, and can highly recommend Danielle for her professionalism, knowledge and ability."

“On our first meeting it was clear that Danielle had understood our brief and conducted a lot of background research. She came forward with ideas from the outset. We were impressed with her knowledge and her enthusiasm for PR was infectious. We agreed to an initial six month trial, but when that ended we signed up as clients of Bloomin’ Creative due to the results achieved during those six months. These results included 36 pieces of press coverage (20 in the local media and 16 in the trade media) giving our brand a total of over 2.5 million opportunities to be seen within our target market. Danielle took the time to get to know ICS, clearly demonstrated her ability and shares a detailed monthly report of press coverage analysis with us. Proactive and honest, we would highly recommend Danielle at Bloomin’ Creative.”
“We’ve been working with Bloomin Creative for over a year and find Danielle very easy to communicate with. She has delivered some fantastic, measurable results, often with limited budgets for our clients. Danielle spends time to understand our clients’ market to deliver an excellent outcome.”
"My wife and I have used Danielle and Bloomin’ Creative’s services for several months and we couldn’t be happier! Danielle is friendly, professional and a joy to work alongside with. She is also a great motivator for brainstorming and generating ideas, off her own volition – which I may add is steadfast and determined to deliver the best possible results! I would not hesitate in recommending Bloomin’ Creative to anyone looking to increase their businesses visibility in this modern world.”

Making You Content
"Danielle at Bloomin’ Creative completed extensive learning materials for our Diploma in Marketing programme within our deadline and within our budget. Danielle showed a clear grasp of the subject matter and presented a professional piece of work which required very little editing or proof checking. Any outstanding queries were resolved quickly and accurately and we were able to launch the new programme earlier than originally planned.”

"I used Bloomin’ Creative to help with the launch of my self-published recipe book ‘A Decade of Cake’. Danielle was lovely to talk to and the results have been outstanding with large articles picked up by every publication that I had in mind. I only wished I had used her services sooner!”

"Danielle came on board to assist with our peak marketing plan. With a specific focus on social and user signups, Danielle quickly put together a content plan and constructed a strategy to use as a strong foundation in our long-term marketing. With Christmas being an incredibly busy time for us, Danielle was vital in the implementation and management of a number of seasonal Christmas campaigns, as well as launching our Instagram account. All at the same time as being a pleasure to work with!”
