We receive great feedback from our clients on the cost-effective and tailored service we offer. Here are a few examples;
Alan Moss of Action Against Heartburn
“We are a charity concerned with raising awareness about symptoms of the sixth largest cause of cancer death in the UK, the oesophagus, which is the bit of your body between your throat and your stomach. Nobody knows much about it until you have a problem, for instance with swallowing, so our aim is to try and spread the word about the health risks of persistent heartburn with very little money because this cancer does not have the resources for fundraising that some other cancers have.
We wanted to have something eye-catching and thought that adverts on the back of buses would give people the opportunity to notice the adverts and absorb the message due to quite a long ‘dwell time’. Some of our volunteers have noticed bus adverts in other parts of the country and commented favourably on them.
We have done a little bit of radio advertising before but did not have the funds to pursue it this time. We opted for adverts on 40 Diamond buses for one month to coincide with Oesophageal Cancer Awareness Month in February.
Adverta made the whole process easy because they managed the charity exemption from VAT, the artwork was all sorted out very efficiently and changes were made quickly before we agreed on the final version.
I was pleasantly surprised and would happily use Adverta again for future campaigns. Adverta were professional, prompt and efficient.”
Alicia Bratton of Forest Travel Holidays Ltd
“We have had a really good response from these adverts and are happy to continue them for another year. For the first time ever, we ran out of holiday brochures due to enquiries from the bus adverts and we even had new customers phone us while they were sat on the buses with the adverts in front of them.
We stopped advertising in some local papers to free up budget to advertise on the buses and we most definitely think this was a good move as we have had so much more from the buses.
Thank you so much to all at Adverta for the professional but friendly help and advice and making the campaign such a success. We would certainly recommend this to companies considering it.”
Sarah Langham of Derby City Council
“Derby City Council, Leisure and Culture have worked with Adverta over a number of years to book bus advertisements in the local Derby city area. The service we receive from Adverta has been excellent from the initial meeting to arrange the locations of buses, through to the numerous images we receive when buses are spotted on the route, followed by a courtesy call/email to check our booking was satisfactory.
I always find the initial meeting helpful; no pushy sales – it’s a chat about what we need the advertisement to do and the best locations of advertisements for our budget spend.
Adverta always provides a good service, at an affordable price, providing the best value for money.”
Paul Downes of John Downes (Garages UK) Ltd
“I am always sceptical about salespeople coming to see me and this was initially no different. We were to discuss a small advert for a weekly fee on the lack of a local bus. What we actually ended up with was a completely decorated rear and side!
After I suggested we go all-out with the big guns, it was Amy whose touch paper was lit; she didn’t want to just seal the deal and leave rubbing her hands together – instead, she started drawing ideas and suggestions and she wanted to be part of this from start to finish with me. She was genuinely excited about this project and that’s what has stood out for me over the whole experience; not only while in development but since it has gone live, the follow-on support has been top-class.
I couldn’t have asked for a better service, design, experience or response. That is how all salespeople should leave their clients.”
Byronie Styx of T&S Heating Ltd
“I found booking the bus advertisements with Adverta really smooth going and Mike was extremely knowledgeable. The design team was great to work with; nothing was too much trouble and the artwork was just what we were looking for.
The adverts really are a great value!”
Jonathan Taylor of C.P Walker & Son
“We were approached by Tina at Adverta with an offer to advertise on a tram and, as we were celebrating 120 years in business, we saw it as a good opportunity to promote this.
Tina and her team were extremely professional and helpful from start to finish; nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend Adverta to people who need to promote their business, large or small.”
Claire Austin of Austin’s Family Funeral Directors
“We have a number of Funeral Arrangement offices in towns throughout North and East Hertfordshire. The advertising we have taken with Adverta has enabled us to reach local communities in all these areas. We have staff and friends who play ‘Spot the Austin’s Bus’ and I receive updates on sightings.”
