Earlier this year, we decided to launch our first ever 'client of the year award' to basically recognise one of our customers who has stood apart from the rest. It was not an easy decision as we have many amazing clients but reached our decision based on many different factors.
James has been a client of Original Bear Media for around five years now, and back in 2018, we had the pleasure of working with him to rebrand his JG Driving College as the Wheeldrive Motoring School. Since this time, we've updated his website and worked with him on a monthly basis looking after his social media and SEO.
It has been a difficult year for small business owners, not least for people like James who were literally unable to work during the first lockdown period and had to totally rethink how their business operated coming out of the lockdown to comply with ever-changing rules and restrictions. We sadly lost a few clients who were unable to survive this pandemic, and we helped many others by deferring payments or providing consultancy.
However despite a lack of work, James continued to maintain and update his website understanding the value of the hard work which has gone into it, he is one of the most reliable customers we have who never misses a payment. But much more importantly, in a situation where many business owners became negative, James kept a positive outlook and stayed focused on the future of his business, developing sensible and workable policies to protect himself and his students when he was able to return to teaching again.
So James, a huge thank you from Original Bear Media for being such a great client and we'll be in touch in the New Year to give you a free website upgrade as a small token of our appreciation!
