CEO DragonPass, Global Sales Promotion & Airport Lounge Company – UK and China
I have worked with many types of agencies and consultants. But none of them ever “got it” like Joanne does. If you have the chance to work with a highly creative, hard working, innovative, results driven team, then you should work with effloresce.
Owner, Hair and Beauty Salon, Bedford
I had the pleasure of working with Joanne when I was launching my hair and beauty salon. She took my creative vision and brought it to life. I was blown away with how well she understood me and how amazing and innovative her creative ideas were. I was well looked after and will always be grateful for ever. If you need someone to work with you and take you that extra mile, work with Joanne at effloresce.
Owner, Physiotherapy clinic, Hertfordshire
effloresce are very, very knowledgeable in their field and they don’t just say it; they actually understand and get it and how everything connects. They don’t tell you what you want to hear; they stretched our thinking and have provided us with more opportunity for growth. Consequently we have re-branded and relaunched a new website which is fully SEO optimised and we now have a scheduled communication plan across the marketing channels. We’re looking forward to reaping the rewards of further marketing activities. effloresce are our outsourced marketing department but we have always felt that they are part of our team particularly with the collaborative way they work. That is a huge differentiator from other marketing services out there. We love their energy, focus and passion for our business. On top of this, Jo and Cath are easy to work with, friendly and approachable; it’s a solid relationship we have built with them to take us on our journey.

We are delighted with the work that effloresce have done for us and the relationship that we have established with them and hope that we will be able to continue to work with them. They have devoted time and energy to learning about our business and market sector and as a result of this they have been able to guide our marketing in a fashion and a direction which we would not have otherwise been able to do and this is exactly what we were hoping for – Thank you!
Owner, Language School, Hertfordshire
effloresce grasped the essence of my business very quickly and Catherine was very proactive with her suggestions for improvements and implementation of them. My online presence has improved dramatically in a very short space of time and I have seen an increase in my enquiries as a result.
I have had the privilege of working with effloresce on a number of marketing projects over the past year. Throughout all encounters effloresce have been nothing short of outstanding to deal with and I cannot recommend their renowned services and expertise highly enough. Their marketing knowledge, strategic outlook, hands-on implementation, impeccable service and non-stop support in guiding clients and managing vendors through the re-branding and marketing process is a first class experience and an absolute pleasure to be a part of.
Director, Creative Agency, Sheffield
I have known Joanne since the late 90’s when she was the Beefeater Brand Manager. Since Whitbread I’ve had the pleasure to work with her on other national brands; Harvester Restaurants and Little Chef also benefited from her expertise. She is a highly experienced marketeer with a wealth of experience in a range of sectors. She’s a passionate, methodical, articulate, driven, realist, with an appreciation of creativity. And last but not least she’s great fun to work with, which I am still doing today.
Business Owner, Garden Centre, Hertfordshire
Prior to engaging effloresce, we knew that we wanted to take our family business of over 60 years on a voyage of modernity, but without upsetting the years of heritage
associated with our family name. This also meant taking our loyal customers on this journey with us, whilst also attracting new ones.
We hired effloresce essentially as our outsourced Website and Social Media specialists. effloresce’s marketing knowledge, expertise and integrity provided us with the confidence to reverse-engineer work on our relatively new website, and to literally begin again. This was a massive leap of faith, but it paid off. Like for like metrics on our website have increased since we launched the current site; from the same period Year on Year: 5,642 incremental users, and 7,018 incremental sessions. It has been positively received by our Customers, and continues to attract new Customers from a younger demographic. effloresce’s copy and content writing is creative, fresh and reflects the tone of Aylett Nurseries.
effloresce went on to launch Social Media for Aylett Nurseries. This included a significant piece of due diligence for our team, reviewing operational standards and crisis management procedures before launching. Since launching on 6 February 2017, we have increased “likes” to our Facebook page by 161%, and we look forward to seeing how our very recent presence on Twitter will enhance brand visibility.
effloresce are enthusiastic about our family business, culture, and genuinely making a difference to our business. They have always been open to suggestions, and tackle difficult questions and issues that we have posed.
We would recommend effloresce to people who need to see their business through a fresh pair of eyes; for a consistent and professional approach.
