“We have been working with Explore Gloucestershire for several years now, they have consistently driven traffic to our website and have contributed to our significantly increased visitor numbers and our appeal to the family market.  We have always found them to be incredibly professional, efficient and courteous and look forward to continuing to work with them in the future."
Jackie Pennington

"Promoting the Farm Park through Explore Gloucestershire is a great way for us to reach out to both locals and tourists looking for things to do in the area. The circulation of the print guide is very impressive and we’ve found the website is one of the biggest referrers to our own.”"

"I've been delighted to work with Jerry and his team at ExploreGloucestershire, the service that is provided in terms of online information about our venues and features for our events has been fantastic.  It's been really great value for us and has helped drive more traffic to our website and raise the profile of The Brewery Quarter.  Not only do they have the professional edge, but the cheerful, friendly service makes it an extra pleasure to work with them."
Demelsa Coleman BA (Hons) (Marketing and Communications Manager of The Brewery Quarter in Cheltenham)

“Explore Gloucestershire has provided us with great traffic to our website who are looking for things to do in the area. The team are so helpful and go out of their way to help promote us when we have new promotions. I’m extremely happy with the service they provide.”

“...the Campaign was by far the most effective (beating radio advertising) and we enjoyed a surperb return on investment.”

Chris Miles - Partnership Executive for FOREST HOLIDAYS (Forest of Dean)

“Working with Jerry and the team on behalf of my client, Sudeley Castle & Gardens, has been a delight from day one. Always helpful and friendly, Jerry is willing to go above and beyond to meet our marketing needs, be it instantly uploading our press releases and events or offering some great conversation on a Thursday morning! He is organised to a tee, and this is very helpful when you have a large number of events to promote like we do at Sudeley."
Jade Mansell, WPR Agency (PR Sudeley Castle & Gardens)

“Jerry is great to work with – he understands the needs of our business and advises on what Explore Gloucestershire can offer to help achieve these. As well as paid for campaigns (which are very effective) Jerry also tries to ensure we have editorial inclusion too, where possible. Offering a variety of services and promotional platforms, I’d thoroughly recommend Jerry and Explore Gloucestershire!”
Jenny Balshaw, Senior Marketing Executive, (Boundless)

"We have been working with Jerry and his team at Explore Gloucestershire for the past 10 years and they have helped Birdland redefine its image and presentation. This has been achieved by their commitment to and understanding of the business, a rare commodity. Leaflet and advert production has been excellent, combined with exposure on the website and brochure which are valuable promotional tools.
They are now helping us to produce graphic information/education signs for various aspects of the Park as well as sponsoring our rather unique Penguin webcam.
Birdland still has more ideas to develop and we look forward to the continued support of Explore Gloucestershire."

Simon Blackwell (Director, Birdland Park & Gardens)

"We have found your magazine and website to be an effective and thorough marketing tool for the Forest of Dean, your attention to detail and continual innovations for promoting Gloucestershire (and us) is a refreshing change from the usual 'dead pan' marketing offered by most publications. Keep up the good work."
Jonathon Wright (Director, Clearwell Caves)

"We are delighted with the results that we have achieved in such a short space of time through the Explore Gloucestershire magazines. Jerry and Karen have been fabulous and our voucher sales have been a superb success for Christmas, we couldn't have chosen a better publication. The magazine is a fabulous guide for locals and tourists visiting the area and the investment we've made in advertising in this magazine has been well worth while. We would recommend it over any other print publication. Distribution is excellent, it gets seen and it works!  This is an essential for any new or existing business. Fabulous, very well done and a highly professional team that care about their advertisers. Many thanks and looking forward to being in 2018 edition."
Lisa & Steve Fox (Owners, Briery Hill Llamas)

“After working with Jerry over the last year I can say without hesitation that if you want to make the most of your marketing spend, then Jerry is your man – others may promise you skyscraper impact and blind you with doublespeak (we’ve all had it!), Jerry on the other hand knows his audiences and the regions he works with – his solutions and sage advice have worked for us and if you’re not using him now – your competitors are!”
Mark Clancy, Centre Manager (Dean Heritage Centre)

"It is always an absolute pleasure working with Jerry and Karen, both of whom work tirelessly to ensure our event listings are online, accurate and appealing, and that our adverts are designed to the highest of standards, where no small change is too much. I most value Jerry’s personal approach and his sound advice, both make you feel like a valued customer, which is rare in today’s world! Thank you both for your continued efforts and Nature in Art shall look forward to working with you long into the future."

Sarah George (Collections & Marketing Officer, Nature in Art)

Jerry and his team are great to work with, making the whole thing easy, which for me makes a huge difference as I am very short of time most of my life. They took the whole task over and made a great advert for us, and kept me in touch with what was happening at all times. A first class service from great people and a good website - here's to you Explore Gloucestershire!!
Jemima Parry-Jones (Owner of The International Birds of Prey Centre at Newent)

“Explore Gloucestershire provides an invaluable opportunity to promote our visitor centre and all our events.”
Tom Harverly (Marketing Manager at Taurus Crafts)

“The Explore team have a great knowledge of tourism and attractions, making the website a really good resource for those looking for days out and events in Gloucestershire.”
Gina Mills (Marketing Support Officer Westonbirt Arboretum)

"We have been working closely with Explore for a number of years, but specifically in the last two years where we have worked closely with Jerry and Karen on both printed and online marketing.  With their help we have seen a growth in our passenger numbers of 40% in the two year period.  They continue to drive a large number of customers to our website – and keep us as one of the premier attractions in the Forest of Dean.
Stuart Williams."
