ATLAS WELLNESS LTD.
Our company has been using Access Point for nearly two years now and we are very happy with their service. Emails are usually answered within 24hrs and our personal contact is very friendly and helpful. We find Access Point is one of the best brokers we've worked with so far. Thank you, Gemma for all your hard work!
The main benefit to using the Access Point service is due to the amount of information we are able to gleam from the use of their online research when selecting site spaces. Making bookings is simple and easy. Searching for location using the actual mosaic profiles makes selecting venues more precise and generates a better return on our investment. I've found the teams across departments very helpful and willing to go the extra mile.
Our recent promotional placement has been very worthwhile for us. Over 1,500 pieces of literature were handed out to specifically targeted shoppers. We feel that the benefit of using promotional sites gives us the opportunity of being face to face with our potential customers. The (customers) are much more likely to contact us having already met us, rather than just seeing an advert in the local paper. We have run this campaign in three local supermarkets recently and are very happy to keep using Access Point on a regular basis for our promotional. Our target demographical is more than covered by the range of shoppers, so is a perfect fit for our marketing efforts.
We are currently booking between 2 and 20 promotional sites a month. We feel this is the best way to launch new business to the local market. It has helped the growth and also means we can sell more territories as Access Point can always find a venue we can use. The booking process is very easy and my team have built up a good relationship with all at Access Point. They have helped out so many times, we would be lost without them.
EVEREST HOME IMPROVEMENTS
The success of the promotional campaigns at supermarkets have had an impact in the approach to market for our sales team, and has reduced reliance on door canvassing. The reactions to the promotions have been very positive, both from the sales staff and from customers.
EVEREST HOME IMPROVEMENTS
Promoting at a supermarket helped me book many appointments for the company. The space was great and the staff friendly so all in a great store, we will be soon as it works great.
When you ask Access Point to look after your venue bookings, you really can get on with something as your request will be dealt with promptly and professionally. I've dealt with Access Point with my last 3 companies and the service has always been the same, excellent. Our results have been over plan because of the care that the AP team make. They consider what it is you are trying to achieve, and help with venue planning. I've run promotions for both sales and lead generation and the help and advice from the AP team means I can get on with other business whilst they look after my needs. They are really easy to do business with, very pleasant to deal with and act promptly.
Setting up a promotional event is really straight forward, the (Access Point) staff are helpful and always get back to our queries and confirm bookings in good time. We are happy with the service they provide and would recommend to any business or charity looking to promote in the local area.
I wanted to say a big thank you for the space you made available to the Explore Learning team February for our promotional event. We had a brilliant day and loved speaking with the customers, and I hope that it added positively to their shopping experience in the store too.
KLEER VISION LTD.
Kleer Vision Windscreen repair specialists Plymouth and South Devon have used Access Point for 18 months, and we have been very impressed with service to date. The staff are very friendly and courteous, booking sites is easy and the staff are very helpful in ensuring the process runs smoothly. We would have no hesitation in recommending Access Point.
LANCASHIRE DOUBLE GLAZING LIMITED
I would like to take this opportunity to say the service offered by Access Point is highly impressive, and every member of staff have been courteous, polite and reliable. The leads we produce from our promotional stands within stores have been of a high quality and we hope this continues.
MARIE CURIE GREAT DAFFODIL APPEAL
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help with booking in collections for Marie Curie during our Great Daffodil Appeal. So far our fundraisers have recorded a huge total of £76,254 from Co-op collections alone, and there is still money coming in. From this income alone we can provide an extra 3,812 hours of nursing care for terminally ill patients and their families. The money raised at each of the Co-op's will stay in the local area to provide care for people living in their community. So a big thank you as well to all the stores for supporting the work we do near them.
NORTH MARIE CURIE CANCER CARE
My experience of Access Point has been of an extremely organised, professional and friendly service. Our promotions raise awareness of Marie Curie services and encourage people to give regularly to support the charity and this year thanks to Access Point, we've been in private sites and the results have been really encouraging.
MOTORLINE NISSAN DARTFORD
Our 3 day day promotion in a car park area had a very positive impact to our business, with four cars being sold directly from the promotion. It is a great way to generate awareness of our dealership in the area and produced many reliable leads. Off site promotions are an important part of our marketing strategy and they drive football into our dealership. Dealing with Access Point was very easy with polite, non-pushy sales staff and a reasonable cost.
The aim was to promote the United Utilities 'Great Value' message at large football areas in UU's catchment areas. The media space had to be large and external in order to house the United Utilities customer vehicle. We had an idea of where we wanted to go and Access Point made it happen in a straight forward way. Jennie is very friendly and has helped me greatly, any questions I had she was able to answer them, giving recommendations. When some sites couldn't accommodate us she gave me alternatives very quickly to suit my needs. Made a booking last minute and (the campaign) was stress free.
NUFFIELD HEALTH & FITNESS
Our recent promotion a Chesterfield Train Station was aimed at creating prospects for this time of the year and has so far had a positive impact on our business. Our intention was to create prospects by offering free trials; we left after one day with 26 new leads! This type of face-to-face marketing has proved to be effective for Nuffield Health & Fitness and is a very important part of our marketing strategy. We regularly book promotional sites every month and the booking process with Access Point is very easy.
Oven Wizards have been using supermarkets all over the country for the last 3 years to launch their new Franchisees and provide existing Franchisees with a boost to their business. We find the whole process very smooth, form the assistance we get in identifying the best store in the Franchisees's Territory, to making the booking and then attending the Sainsbusry's store for the day's event. We have done about 50 events at stores and we find them integral to how we support Oven Wizards Franchisees to launch their new business. Myself and my business partner Mark Abbott support our new Franchisees by standing with them outside the stores, handing out leaflets and making bookings. We get a very positive response from the shoppers, we thoroughly enjoy doing it and we get some great business results.
PENICUIK HOME IMPROVEMENTS
I have used Access Point for promotions in Aberdeen and found it to be very worthwhile. The week I had my team in place produced a steady amount of business and I was more than satisfied with the result. Things got even better during the following week and we did even more business... so not only did we hit our target the week we were there (in store) the knock on effect was outstanding and I would recommend anyone looking to expand to use Access Point. The staff are friendly and helpful and provide a wealth of information from the footfall to the best locations, and using their experience I have found it to be a an easy and profitable way of getting our brand out there, so much so I have just booked another location with them. A big thank you to the team at Access Point for all your help and I look forward to working with you on a regular basis.
We have sourced a good lead generation method through Access Point. It is a great addition to the other promotional marketing methods we use and we continue to generate consistent, high quality leads from this type of face to face marketing.

Our account manager, Lesley provides us with all the information we require before, during and after all of the events we attend - enabling us to carry out our exhibitions in a highly-efficient manner. We look forward to continuing Solar Fusion's successful relationship with Lesley and Access Point in the future.
TIME FOR YOU, EDINBURGH.
I booked a promotional event for a day in Edinburgh. The day was very good and I had the opportunity to approach customers whom I may not otherwise had the chance to speak with. The event is a good opportunity to gain brand awareness and hopefully receive bookings/follow up later. I have already booked a customer from the event and I feel confident I will get more enquiries. It was good to get my leaflets out there and give customers a chance to see what services we have to offer. Although most people are busy when they are shopping they will take your information to look at later, some will want to spend a bit of time talking to you but most grab your leaflet for later reflection. I would book this event again later in the year.
UK CLOTHING CARAVAN LTD.
Our account manager James Wilcoxson has been very helpful by ensuring a smooth process whilst booking Wickes venues for us across the United Kingdom. As one of the UK's leading organisations in the textiles reuse & recycling industry, it is important for us to project a good image and presentation to the public and to the people that we work with. James has done a great job in helping us secure important sites for our Cash for Clothes business. UK Clothing Caravan would like to thank James for his assistance and we look forward to continuing to work with James and Access Point in the future.
Venture Rochdale have been booking exhibitions via Access Point for some time now. I am delighted to say they have been a huge success. There are so many great sites to choose from in our area and we are hoping to continue booking with them for our future exhibitions. They have been quick and simple to set up and all the staff at Access Point have been extremely helpful and friendly when arranging the details.
We have been using Access Point for nearly a year to book private sites for our charity fund-raising campaigns. Joanne Saltmarshe has been an absolute pleasure to work with and I can honestly say she is the most proficient, helpful and friendly Account Manager I ever worked with. Jo is always willing to go the extra mile in accommodating our requirements, offering extremely prompt responses, feedback and results. This has certainly alleviated some of the pressures we have faced and contributed to the overall success of our campaigns. Thank you so much for all your help Jo!
WW&J MCCLURE SOLICITORS
I would like to thank you for your service in helping us book various venues around the country. Having been new to the channel it is refreshing to know that we can rely on you to guide and advise us which has helped hugely...without a doubt this has proven to be a huge success for us, we have seen volumes of appointments with new clients grew 100 fold. This would not have been possible if it were not for the excellent service we receive from from the staff at Access Point and they have managed to negotiate excellent rates compared to what we were quoted directly. We have also had to have a some last minute changes which causes a lot more work for Lesley and her staff but nothing is ever a problem. Overall we will now be looking at expanding this channel in our business and this would not have been as easy if it were not for Access Point. Thanks again and we look forward to working more and more with you in the future.
I wanted to say thank you for helping us to schedule our promotion in Harpenden, overall the week was a fantastic success and we were able to introduce Chilli Pilates to lots of interested shoppers. All of the staff were very helpful and really made us feel welcome. Based on the success of this week I want to plan for more bookings for the rest of the year.
“We were looking for a different type of marketing, which would get us in front of people we wouldn’t normally to speak to. Using the Makro stores achieved this and we will continue to attend these venues for the foreseeable future.”
As always Access Point has someone that understands the pressure that field agencies have. You have been a great help and support.
HIDDEN HEARING LTD
Hidden Hearing have been working with Access Point for over three years now, conducting promotional marketing activities to fulfil lead generation and experiential campaigns across Britain.

MARIE CURIE BELFAST
I would like to thank you for allowing my team to visit Makro and speak to your customers. We had some wonderful conversations with people about the work of the charity and gained new supporters who have committed to a monthly donation to the charity via direct debit. We also spoke to many people who wish to support the charity through volunteering and events. My team really enjoyed working in Makro and found all staff to be friendly and helpful. Once again I would like to thank you for your assistance.
