On SCRUM Magazine
“Scottish Rugby has provided copy for The SCRUMsince its launch as a means of extending the reach of marketing messages to, and sharing best practice with, the club audience in Scotland. We have always been pleased with The SCRUM’s flexibility and willingness to provide additional editorial space in support of Scottish Rugby’s events and programmes.”
Zoe Paige, Community Marketing Manager, Scottish Rugby
“Chicane have worked with Bell Johnstone Communications for a number of years, placing adverts and editorial for many of our clients in Scots Auto Scene and FACTS Magazine.
“We have found that on several occasion both the magazines have hit our clients’ target markets - generating sales leads and promoting their brands to the publication's readerships north of the border.
“Most recently, Auto Scene has also proved appropriate to target the UK’s wider aspects of the aftermarket, due to the initiative shown by Bell Johnstone in launching this ezine title. It’s demonstrated a real understanding of the market place and when some media titles are unfortunately disappearing due to the nature of these recent difficult times, Bell Johnstone’s team have bucked the trend and brought more into the aftermarket.
"All of us at Chicane continue to enjoy working with Bell Johnstone’s automotive team and find them professional, knowledgeable and indeed very friendly too.”Gary Barak
