WHICH CLIENTS HAVE WE WORKED WITH?
Louise has been instrumental in helping Walkden Town Centre establish their strong Social Media channels. Having had a very poor reputation in the community, the work that Louise has implemented has helped to turn this around. Not only is she great at liaising with our tenants for content, she also thinks outside of the box and posts creative and news worthy content which enables consistent fresh content across each of our channels of Social Media. I don’t even have to ask, Louise uses her initiative and keeps it relevant, exciting and very regular. We have smashed our targets on both Facebook and Twitter and have created an online, fun environment that the community are happy to talk about and share amongst their networks. Additional to this Louise provides me with a wealth of monthly analytics providing evidence that the time and input is creating successful results.

It’s really great to be working with Louise, she has helped VIVA Magazine grow over the last year with her sales and marketing skills and experience within the magazine world. We are grateful to have her on the VIVA team and excited to be continuing our working relationship with Louise to grow VIVA even more.

Louise has worked with On Our Doorstep for 7 years now and still remains as enthusiastic about the work and magazine as when she started. Louise provides a professional service and is a self-starter with a very positive attitude. She has helped to grow the business, getting new clients on board and maintaining existing. With her previous experience, Louise has also been able to offer creative suggestions for magazine as a whole.

Louise worked for me for 12 months in BBC Magazines Northern Sales team covering maternity leave. This was a difficult position to come into but Louise very quickly adapted to the role and through her hard work and sales skills ensured that targets were met and surpassed. During Louise’s time with us BBC Magazine Northern Sales Team experienced frequent periods when we were under-staffed. Louise never hesitated to step in and take on extra responsibilities.

Working with Louise as our IPC Agency Champion has been both an enjoyable and constructive experience. Louise embraced what was a newly created role and always represented IPC in a professional and proactive manner. I wish Louise the best of luck and look forward to working with her again in the not too distant future.
Richard Aldiss Media Director, Universal McCann Manchester 25th April 2016
I can confirm that during the last 4 years Louise has been my day-to-day sales contact at IPC Magazines. During that time she has always delivered a very high standard of client service, consistently demonstrated a tremendous amount of pro-activity, professionalism and enthusiasm.
I find Louise to be very much a ‘people person’ who seems to engender close working relationships with peers and clients alike and is a very affable person.
Kelly Foster Account Manager, ARM, Leeds 25th April 2016
Louise has been our IPC representative since we set up Mediavest Leeds in February 2003. However, I have known Louise for over 6 years. During that time I have always found her to be extremely professional and enthusiastic on every project she’s presented with. We have worked closely with Louise on a range of accounts including Belling, Stoves and Porcelanosa. Louise has always been a popular media owner with our press team and her ability to strike the correct balance between keeping us informed, while not pestering us is always appreciated.
Dominic Geary Director, Mediavest Leeds 25th April 2016
Louise has integrated herself into the Good Homes team really quickly and has been a major contributor to the success of Good Homes this year. She’s had impressive call rates and bought in good pieces of business, as well as building strong relationships with key clients for Good Homes. She is tenacious, enthusiastic and positive – even when faced with adversity. Louise is a pleasure to work with and is an important member of our team.
Natalie Carter Ad Manager, BBC Good Homes 25th April 2016
I have known Louise Adkin for over 12 years first when she was a key part of my launch team at Shape Magazine in 2000. This was her first magazine sales position and she soared, she is a complete natural, connected easily with her clients and agencies and showed a strength in negotiation that is rare. So, in 2014 when I needed freelance assistance I did not hesitate to contact Louise who contributed to the project planning and executed her tasks with aplomb. I would recommend Louise not just for her undoubted sales ability but also for her understanding of the media opportunity, it’s potential. I enjoy her company and admire her work and will most definitely be calling on her services in the very near future.
Lesley Churchill Sponsorship Sales and Search Director 25th April 2016
Louise has been of huge assistance to the Chamber as we went through a significant period of change looking at how we delivered our events and put in place a better structured sponsorship and partner programme. Louise took to the work with great enthusiasm and brought with her years of experience and expertise to help shape and influence a hugely important part of the Chamber’s commercial activity directly related to servicing and offering value to its members and customers.
