2016 has been an amazing year of expansion for CJAM.
The Colchester-based marketing and communications agency won 12 new clients and scooped NOT ONE but TWO prestigious marketing awards. We organised 16 major conferences, exhibitions and awards dinners in the UK and Europe, distributed over 200 e-newsletters and developed five new apps.
We’ve worked on a range of exciting projects. We launched a new fundraising appeal for Age UK Essex to help the 33,000 people in our county who are living with loneliness or dementia. We created a suite of over 20 communications materials for leading insurance company Hood Group, to guide policy holders through a multitude of messages and vital information.
We took on all the marketing, PR and advertising for Barleylands Farm Park & Craft Village, a leading Essex attraction which welcomes 60,000 visitors every year. We created five new websites for clients, including Nancy Khawam Family Law and Widford Lodge Preparatory School – for whom we also launched a proactive social media campaign.
We started working with new association clients and in partnership with TyreSafe, achieved charity status its landmark 10th anniversary year. Our cancer campaign for Colchester Hospital was launched by MPs in the House of Commons. The £4.5 million fundraising campaign aims to provide a comprehensive cancer centre with state-of-the-art radiotherapy and chemotherapy suites and an information and advice centre for patients when they need it most.
We achieved a reach of over three billion for clients from TV, radio, national press and online, attended 372 meetings, travelled 100,000 miles and raised an incredible £8,000 for charity.
Managing Director Christine Joyce pulled together the 2016 facts and figures, which also include how many shoes and handbags the team have purchased this year – a very impressive 183!
She said: “2016 has been a memorable year for CJAM and our results speak for themselves. We’ve won two awards and 12 new clients, taken big strides forward across many sectors and devised engaging and creative marketing campaigns for a diverse range of clients.
