Who am I?
My name is Louise Bruce, the founder and owner of Big Red Box PR. I started up the business in Feb 2011 after a friend bet me all the money in his pocket (£6) that I wouldn't do it. He never did win his money back and I never looked back. Thanks Rod.
I am a Mum of two adult children, a wannabe triathlete, a runner, a dog owner, a wine lover, a festival goer, BBQ Queen, the owner of a campervan that I use A LOT and a semi professional party thrower.
In my spare time I am passionate about franchising and running Big Red Box PR. I'm one of those annoying people who sticks their hands up at parties and says 'I love my job' when all around are saying how much they hate theirs. Sorry.
I love franchising
Why do I love franchising? Because as a model, done correctly, it works and I feel my job is to keep letting the world know this. Because I get to meet so many interesting people, franchisors and franchisees, they all have great stories to tell and I love sharing them. Because I can really make a difference to the public awareness of a brand. Louise Harris and I even took our turn at being co chairs of EWIF (Encouraging Women Into Franchising). We rebuilt the website and introduced regional meetings including one in the House of Commons.
Experienced and qualified
In 2021 I went back to school and gained a qualification in digital marketing, making me a Certified Digital Marketeer, so now, not only do I write up great stories, I also share them in digital format too. I can also do simple videos to go with award entries. Aside from press releases, case studies etc, I also love copy writing, drafting articles that appear on blogs or in franchising magazines.
I have been working with all the franchising magazines for many years I .regularly write columns/articles for them under my client's name. Read what some of them have been kind enough to say on my 'Testimonials' page.
Who do I work for?
I work for a wide variety of franchise organisations, see my testimonials for some idea of the companies. I also work for other industries including cyber security. IT services and insurance.
