Why work with us? Here’s last year’s winner:

Exercise In The City needed practical help and advice on marketing activities, design and website improvements. We were delighted to help Julia with the following:

  • revitalise her business stationery
  • set up her email marketing template and newsletter content
  • teach her how to track and analyse her website traffic, amongst other things
  • make improvements to her website layout and design and content (we are still working with Julia on this)

A key result was achieving an e-newsletter open rate of 35% (14% above the Mailchimp average for the health & fitness industry).

“Winning Shake to Create has been such a great opportunity for me and Exercise in the City. As the sole Founder my days are so busy and there have been things I’ve always wanted to do but just haven’t had the capacity or the knowledge to do. Rachael and Meg have really helped to promote my business providing both practical marketing and design outputs as well as insightful tips and advice. Plus, my new business cards look great and I’ve had lots of comments on them. Rachael and Meg thank you so much for everything over the last year!” – Julia Scodie, Exercise In The City
