We’re a small team of proven entrepreneurs based in sunny Bournemouth. In the main, we look after a bunch of our own start ups. Elite Media is the engine room used to build and grow stuff. We also take on the occasional exciting project for burgeoning and recognised brands that take our fancy.
We own Elite Living
With over 65,000 subscribers in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, Elite Living offers its members the most exclusive deals on a variety of lifestyle products, covering restaurants, spas, hotels, activities, event and more. Over 250,000 deals have been sold since its inception, creating over £4million in revenue for mostly independently owned businesses in the locality. Elite Media has developed Elite Living from the ground up, and continues to grow the business through innovative tech improvements and use of digital media.
We own Chicken & Blues
A multi-award winning BBQ Chicken concept with 3 locations and an outside event catering business including a fully branded trailer. The Chicken & Blues mission is to provide a completely different take on the traditional Chicken shop. Elite Media has built and developed the online and offline presence and general branding, and continues to manage all marketing activities for the business on a day to day basis. Most recently, Elite Media has partnered with various social influencers and local event producers to place the C&B brand in front of the target demographic in fresh and dynamic formats.
We own Raffity
Elite Media were tasked to develop this fully integrated technology platform, alongside advanced marketing systems, to optimise fund raising opportunities for celebrity partners. Fans are given the chance to win once-in-a-lifetime experiences with their favourite stars, whilst raising money for worthy causes by donating in this unique crowd funding concept. EM’s team have managed to introduce celebrities such as Jamie Laing and Ray Winstone, and sports teams such as AFC Bournemouth, to Raffity, with successful campaigns the result.
We own Fort Raj
Elite Media were able to negotiate a deal to retain the team from the highly established Rajasthan restaurant in Penn Hill, Poole. After 25 years of successful trade, and a highly engaged customer base, we are delighted to have secured a new term and give our partner Bobby the opportunity to continue his fine work in delivering a modern take on authentic Indian cuisine.
Client Sandown Mercedes-Benz
Elite Media has an established relationship with Sandown Mercedes-Benz of Poole, stretching back many years. EM created an experiential events brand under the working title ‘Mercedes Rocks’, which has seen countless celebrities, as well as over 10,000 people attend a variety of events in the Bournemouth and Poole area. Lead generation, partnership introductions and direct sales have also formed part of the marketing mix, which has resulted in circa 100 vehicles being sold at the dealership.
Elite Media were tasked by Deliveroo to consult on their launch in the Bournemouth and Poole area. EM continues to advise Deliveroo on regional marketing on a consultancy basis. The support given touched the full spectrum of tools at EM’s disposal. From social media content creation, influencer partnerships, media buying (including negotiating a large scale deal with AFC Bournemouth), multiple event sponsorships, lead generation strategies, business to business contra deal negotiation and much more.
One of the most iconic member’s nightclubs in history, Tramp London, came to Elite Media for support and strategic advice. EM was able to consult on high level, owed to the partners having had front line experience in nightlife internationally for over 15 years. An overhaul of digital imagery, tone of voice, social media content creation, web presence, member communications and event curation were implemented over a 6 month period, before being handed back to a very able team. Tramp continues to thrive to this day, with an ever growing list of members from around the world.
