Our services

We work in a variety of areas to provide bespoke services tailored to you.

Websites

We can help with your websites, whether it’s building and maintaining a new website from scratch, or taking on the management or development of an existing site.

Design and publicity

From fliers and publicity materials, to book publishing, we can work with you to design a wide range of materials for a variety of purposes, turning your ideas, requirements and needs into professional looking product, whether for printing, emailing, online or a combination.

Mailings and communication

We can work with you to produce regular email newsletters and mailings, fully integrated with your website and social media, as well as managing mailing lists and databases.

Other services

We have a wide range of experience in many of the other services needed to support a charity, organisation or small business:

  • organisational support, including administration; bookkeeping and finance; management reporting; IT; stock and sales management
  • charity support, including establishing and registering a charity; trustee and annual reporting
  • event planning
  • video production and editing; photography

Why we’re different

Whilst there are many website companies, design agencies and mailing houses, each at significant cost, we are able to provide many specialist services in one place – meaning that you can get all of your website, design, mailing, logistical, administrative and planning needs in one place – and for one fee. We can tailor packages to your needs and your budget, so please do get in touch so that we can put together a bespoke offering of exactly what you need.

For example, you might want:

  • a day per week to look after your website, social media and design needs
  • a one-off website, video, flier and publicity materials for a particular campaign you are running
  • regular event planning and design of publicity for those events
  • a rebranding, redesign of your website, new stationery and publicity materials
  • help in setting up and managing a new charity – governing documents, registration, an annual report and trustee communication

We love unusual combinations, so whatever your needs, please do get in touch and see whether we can help you out.

What people say

What we needed during my year as President of the Methodist Conference (2016-17) was someone who could learn quickly, work well with colleagues, respond flexibly to changing situations and be meticulous in administrative support. In Ben, that is exactly what we got.

Ben took our tentative words and ideas and built us a great website. He has been readily available to help us when we got stuck and has equipped us to update and add new information ourselves. Great to work with and starts where you are!

We found that working with Ben at Bromeliad was incredibly easy and straightforward. He understood the work which we needed to be completed and helped with developing our ideas and requirements. The work we commissioned was completed on time and to a very high standard. We would highly recommend working with Bromeliad.

Why Bromeliad?

I told her we were going to get married, and all she could talk about was frogs. She said there’s these hills where it’s hot and rains all the time, and in the rainforests there are these very tall trees and right in the top branches of the trees there are these like great big flowers called… bromeliads, I think, and water gets into the flowers and makes little pools and there’s a type of frog that lays eggs in the pools and tadpoles hatch and grow into new frogs and these little frogs live their whole lives in the flowers right at the top of the trees and don’t even know about the ground, and once you know the world is full of things like that, your life is never the same.
