Happy to help grow Blackpool’s business community


Posted on: 1st Oct. 2021

We’re delighted to be continuing in our role as Blackpool Unlimited’s marketing partner after a successful tender process. It means we get to play our part in ensuring more start up and growing Blackpool businesses get the support they need.

Marketing for the bigger picture
Until 2024, we’ll be helping Blackpool Unlimited with a full marketing consultancy service. It’s a role that enables us to look at the bigger picture, creating and shaping bespoke marketing plans and tactics to suit the organisation’s goals.

“So much has changed as a result of the pandemic,” explained Chief Happy, Karen Lambert. “Markets, aspirations, customer behaviours and the way people work together have all been affected. It has changed the nature of the support Blackpool businesses need. It has influenced how the team at Blackpool Unlimited has delivered that support, and that has changed the marketing requirements, and they trust us to adapt with them.”

Throughout the next phase of the relationship, Happy will continue to complement the existing in-house team, providing marketing strategy, planning and brand building, a wide remit that includes creative concept design, content creation, social media management, press releases, animations and video, and event marketing support.

"It’s our pleasure to share the great work they do in building the prosperity of our town. We’re excited to be able to continue our work in ensuring more people and businesses benefit from it."


David Slater, Business Development Manager for Blackpool Council, said, “We exist to support local businesses and to provide more opportunities for job creation in Blackpool. A vital part of our success is the way we market ourselves. Extending our relationship with Happy Creative will enable us to keep extending our reach to offer free support to many more local businesses.”

Karen added, “We first partnered with Blackpool Unlimited in 2013. Since then we’ve seen the difference they make close up, as we’ve talked to start-ups and scale-ups who’ve found answers, inspiration, office space and practical support. It’s our pleasure to share the great work they do in building the prosperity of our town. We’re excited to be able to continue our work in ensuring more people and businesses benefit from it.”

Social Media

All the tweets and posts in the world won’t help generate leads unless there’s some strategic thinking behind what you’re doing.

We’ll help define the right social media strategy for you, so that you’re on the right platforms, saying the right things to the right people at the right time to generate the right leads.

Design & Brand Building

Marketing is bit like those huge, swirling flocks of starlings you see from time to time. Individually your brochure, email, ad, meme or gif may not change the world.

But when you join them together and ensure they’re all heading in the same direction, you have the power to stop people in their tracks.

We design communications that help build a consistent brand and convert more leads to sales.

Your website can generate leads in so many ways. Informed content. Strong calls to action. A simple, natural journey from ‘Hi there!’ to ‘Buy now’.

Yet websites are never ‘done’. They need to keep evolving to keep pace with your customers’ expectations, so we’ll be with you for the long haul to keep tweaking, refining and growing your site – and to deliver the PPC campaigns that help drive traffic towards it.

Because when your website keeps working to understand and speak to your audience, you’ve got more chance of converting.

PR & Content

There’s a knack to ensuring your business is seen in the right places at the right time. We’ll build your PR profile across the mix of channels that’s right for you (from press to social media to events) and use our contacts to spread the word.

So when your customers are ready to buy, it’ll be your brand they think of first.
