Testimonials

Marnie

We knew working with the Grapevine would more easily target our market. We set up 5 years ago to create practical, yet easy to wear rain resistant alternatives to tricky overtrousers. Our products are high end, for a small market; British and very ‘country’. We love the concept of Grapevine, the meeting of similar, yet diverse minds and were delighted to be welcomed on board with our field and rain skirts. Our production facility is tiny and we are not skilled business women therefore finding end users was to have its problems…. Grapevine enabled us to share our work with just the kind of discerning characters we were aiming at, with a lovely sense of belonging, rather than pure ‘product’. Panda will nudge you and guide you, for she wants only the best for her members, like a lovely mother hen. Sell yourself as a good member and join the gang!

We launched our new holiday cottage next to our pub so sought some exposure. And we were amazed to see how effective news spread as people literally “heard it on the Grapevine”.

I joined Grapevine a month ago and along with interesting posts and offers on my weekly email I have used it to promote my workshop business. I found the posting process very straightforward and was delighted with the quality and volume of responses. Panda has been very quick to respond to any questions I have had. I’m looking forward with interest to see how my further posts are received. - owner of Water Lane Workshops Gloucestershire.

“I recently purchased a second hand VW Golf via an advertisement on Grapevine. Often the process of buying a second hand car can be fraught with difficulties & risks but by using the Grapevine’s close knit network meant it was more like buying off a trusted friend & not a dodgy car dealer! The whole transaction could not have been more straightforward & three months on I’m still delighted with my purchase of a great little car for a very reasonable price!”

Sophie

We found a wonderful new home for our last Border puppy on Grapevine, it was so easy to use and we would definitely use it again. Thank you Grapevine!

Of course Panda and Grapevine have helped us broadcast our small business incredibly effectively. We love the clear advertising, excellent photographs and read all interviews avidly. Additionally they have also supported our start up recruitment platform tirelessly with advice, support and given up their precious time to help us. Rarely have I come across such a collaborative collection of people. I cannot recommend and thank Grapevine enough. Thank you all so much. Katharine Landale, Founder, Bold New World
