SuperAwesome News For Bee Industrious!!!

The Manchester based market research & insights company Bee Industrious has won a major contract with London based SuperAwesome who operate a technology platform enabling safe and compliant digital marketing to kids online.

The multi-year agreement will see Bee Industrious deliver several specific research projects whilst producing four quarterly insight reports (ScreenScape, ReachMeter, AwesomeBrands & TrendAlert) for SuperAwesome and their clients who include Disney and Warner Bros.  SuperAwesome will also see huge benefits from this partnership as they take advantage of the experience the Bee Industrious teams possess. There will be several planned improvements with a focus being placed on increasing the quarterly research panel from just over 2,000 kids between the ages of 4 – 18 years to 4,000. This will make it the largest survey of its kind focusing on the behaviour, habits and trends of kids.

Nick Richardson, Managing Director of Bee Industrious comments ” We are absolutely delighted to be working with SuperAwesome and their hugely impressive list of subscribers. For SuperAwesome to have agreed to a long-term partnership I think it is safe to say we have gained a positive reputation for the quality of our market reports and we are excited to add our own twist to these industry leading reports”

Bee Industrious Is Up & Running!

Bee Industrious is a new market research & insights company founded by Nick Richardson.  Richardson grew up in Altrincham and is a former Manchester Metropolitan University graduate.  He spent the best part of a decade in London holding positions in several senior strategic marketing roles before moving back up to Manchester to launch Bee Industrious. Always looking at ways to sharpen his skills to allow himself to excel within the industry for the good of his clients and projects, Nick is a current executive MBA student at the University of Bolton.

“Having worked in market research and insights for most of my career I have witnessed the phenomenal growth in the industry. Throughout this time, I have come across numerous agencies who have simply provided data but without the insights and I decided that I wanted to focus on setting up an agency with both insight and consultancy at its heart. The next few months will see us building on our infrastructure and we promise to make further exciting updates in the very near future”
