The guiding principle of PinPoint is simple. We think every business deserves smart, human, targeted content with a bit of wow.
But what does that mean to you? Here’s how it all happens when you work with us…
How we work
We use insights to create content that truly moves the needle. We’ll never waste your time on waffle, or work that is pretty for pretty’s sake.
Projects evolve and needs change. We are always agile, adapting our teams, processes and ways of working for each client.
Clear Goals Up-Front
We’ll take the time to understand the outcome you need. Once we’ve agreed some shared goals, we can measure progress and celebrate success.
No Big Reveals
We work openly and transparently, sharing, improving and testing as we go. We never miss an email and we’ll never disappear on you.
No More Stuff for the Sake of Stuff.
No nonsense means not doing things for the sake of it. Whether that’s needlessly expensive production, content that doesn’t serve a purpose or strategy simply to justify media spend.
It also means taking pride in creating content that we can all be proud of. With data-driven accountability and the kind of inspired storytelling that stops you in your tracks and your feed.
It’s a culture that started with our founder, Oliver Bruce, who set up PinPoint aged 19, having spotted that many businesses were keen to use the power of video but either couldn’t afford it, or didn’t know where to start.
That belief now underpins everything we do… That every business large or small should have access to transparent, smart thinking that gets the right content in the right place with an added dash of wow… After all, who said No Nonsense had to mean dull?
With 1 GCSE, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and having been to 7 different schools it’s safe to say education wasn’t Oliver’s strongpoint.
Having founded his first business whilst at University aged 18, Oliver, now 29, continues to aggressively expand PinPoint Media as they explore data-led and analytical video, voice and animation content forecasting to double revenues in 2021.
Oliver has won numerous awards for Entrepreneurship from the Institute of Directors, Director of the Year award (aged 24) through to the FSB Young Entrepreneur award and multiple 30 under 30 recognitions. He’s a passion for start-ups and entrepreneurialism mentoring for the Princes Trust as well as students as an alumnus of his University.
Fergus started his career in events working for O2, after realising he wasn’t so good at being told what to do, he went freelance managing festivals around the UK. After building his network he set up his first ‘proper’ business delivering experiential brand activations for some of the best brands including Relentless, Cornish Orchards and Puma at events festivals across the UK.
Having scaled and sold the business aged 26, Fergus joined Oliver at PinPoint Media to help drive its aggressive expansion in the media world. Since joining PinPoint the team, growth and turnover has tripled in as many years. Day-to-day he focuses on operational excellence, project deliverability, staff engagement and recruitment.
Frustrated by the agency world, Fergus is passionate about delivering data-driven creative with production expertise to power the growth of the business and its clients – proving the return on investment.
