As 2019 quickly approaches, we’re taking a look back at what’s been an incredible year for Jam_! We’ve got a shiny new look, some brand new faces and we’ve even had a chance to be the ones giving the awards – though we couldn’t help but win a couple ourselves!
Here’s what 2018 looked like for everyone at Jam Towers.
Say hello to the new Jam_!
In the immortal words of Phil Collins, we’re now “two worlds, one family”.
Clients have had access to a full range of services since Jam_ was created over a decade ago, and we thought it was about time we shouted about this to the outside world.
JAMpr and Jam Creative became Jam_, along with a brand new website designed by our amazing team. Take a look around while you’re here!
Check out our stats
This year, we’ve generated more than 28 million impressions and over 300,000 engagements on social media, and over a thousand pieces of coverage for our clients!
We’ve always looking to increase our stats, with dozens of pitches and new business meetings – but we can tell you more about this in 2019…
Here’s one of our favourite stats of the year – did you know that the Metrolink Monsters game we created for our client Transport for Greater Manchester had more than 100,000 game plays during the campaign? That’s just under 300 days in total!
A couple of new faces
Jam_ Towers has been busier than ever, as we recently added two new senior Jam_mers to the team.
Our Account Director Claire Robinson was appointed to head up and lead the strategy on key accounts including The Furniture Recycling Group and The Printworks.
Our Senior Creative Dan Muir joined the team to lead and implement creative work for clients such as Velcro Brand Products and Sync.
Awards, Awards, Awards
Another year of Jam_ means another year of amazing award wins for our hard work! Our campaigns were shortlisted for THIRTY awards, taking home Gold and Silver at the CIPR PRide Awards for Best Use of Digital and Best Use of Social Media for our work with First Target Recoveries. Go Team Jam_!
After winning The Talk of Manchester Awards (TOMs) five times we decided it was time for Jam_ to take things to the next level. We were headline sponsors and presented the award for Best PR Agency to Thirty30 Media, who coincidentally presented us with the same award last year!
We had an amazing night at the awards and were very proud to be sponsoring an event that celebrates the successful businesses in our fantastic city.
New client wins
Well, it’s certainly been a busy one this year for new clients.
To name just a few, our wins include The Printworks, User Conversion, Hydes Beer Studio, APJ Solicitors and Sync.
One of our top client moments of the year was the launch evening for Sync, which was incredible! We brought Deansgate to a halt, had a tech talk with Gary Neville and made sure Manchester knew exactly who Sync is! Check out a few highlights from the evening here:
All in all, it’s been a very good year and if the last twelve years (yes, twelve!) are anything to go by, 2019 is going to be even bigger for us!
