MARKETING agent Fantastic Media has made its most successful start to a year ever – by securing five new accounts in the first quarter of 2010.

The Birstall-based agency’s successes include working with entrepreneur and Apprentice finalist, Claire Young, Northern Commercials, Liquid Accounts, Alpha Media Solutions and Banana Moon.

The account wins underline the agency’s commercial experience across a wide range of industry sectors – from law firms and haulage companies to cosmetics brands and sports clubs.

Fantastic managing director Andrew Hobson said: “As the region talks about coming out of recession, more and more companies are realising the importance of investing in marketing, PR, web and digital services as a cost-effective means of building their business.

“We are delighted with our continued growth so far this year/ The year 2010 has started very strongly for us and we’re working hard with all of our clients to achieve their business objectives and drive the region’s business growth forwards.”
