Huddersfield Hub is proud to welcome Beanie Media on board as one of its major new sponsors.

Denby Dale-based Beanie Media is a fast-growing web design and development, eCommerce and social media agency.

The company was set up in 2018 by business partners Melissa Roberts and Dan Atkinson, who were aged just 18 and 19 at the time.

The agency, which has a five-strong team, has just celebrated its third anniversary by winning website maintenance contracts with two large e-commerce brands.

Melissa recently joined the board of the Huddersfield-based Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce after a year as a patron.

Beanie Media will become sponsors of Huddersfield Hub’s Business Section from October 1 and Huddersfield Hub editor and managing director Martin Shaw said: “It’s great to welcome Beanie Media on board.

“It’s amazing what Melissa and Dan have achieved in such a short space of time and they are proving a real inspiration to young people in business.

“It’s brilliant that they are supporting us to provide a platform to help support other small businesses thrive and grow.”

Martin added: “The pandemic has been tough for everyone but no-one wants a constant diet of bad news and negativity when there’s plenty to be positive and optimistic about.

“At Huddersfield Hub we don’t cover breaking news, we break good news, and that’s what makes us different.

“What Huddersfield Hub wants to do is bring people together and foster a sense of community. Positivity, kindness and people helping people can move mountains.”

Beanie Media managing director Melissa said she was delighted to support a media outlet that dared to be different.

“Huddersfield Hub was launched to offer a vibrant and positive source of news to the Huddersfield community and we love that vision and ethos. This aligns with our own values as a business as we set up Beanie Media to give local businesses a different kind of agency experience.

“Like many people, I’ve got tired of seeing negative news stories about the local area when there are so many wonderful things going on in Huddersfield.

“Huddersfield Hub is shouting about these and helping to promote the town with a positive energy.

“The strong sense of community spirit in Huddersfield has helped us to thrive as a business, and we want to support the town however we can, which is why we’ve become a partner of Huddersfield Hub.”
