Disabled Motoring UK (DMUK) is a campaigning charity for disabled drivers, passengers and Blue Badge holders.
Nimble Media took over the advertising sales and management of the print and distribution of Disabled Motoring, the organisation’s monthly magazine, in 2018.
The magazine is free to DMUK members and features current campaigns, news, legislation updates, real life stories and reviews of vehicles, scooters and mobility aids.
A digital version is distributed to online subscribers, advertisers and supporters of the charity.
Graham Footer, DMUK chief executive, explains: “I first learned about Vicky through a mutual friend who works in the rail industry.
“Our magazine’s publishing deal was coming to an end and so he put me in touch with Nimble Media.
“First impressions and gut feeling account for a lot in my experience and Vicky gave off the right vibe at our very first meeting – the perfect combination of professional and personable.
“From the outset, working with Vicky and the Nimble Media team has been a positive experience and grown to become a great partnership.
“I really feel that they care about the charity and our magazine and are always approachable and supportive.
“They are a close-knit team, passionate about what they do – exactly mirroring what we have here at DMUK.
“They genuinely want to do the best possible job, often going the extra mile to help, and we work extremely effectively together.”
Nimble Media stepped up to provide additional support to the publication when the editorial designer went on maternity leave in summer 2020.
“Vicky ensured the magazine production continued to run smoothly by organising for the Nimble Media designer to step into the role.
“He also refreshed the design, which has received positive feedback from members and advertisers.
“This support proved invaluable and just one example of why working with Vicky and the Nimble Media team has been an excellent move for us.
“They are flexible and willing to go above and beyond when needed.
“I wouldn’t think twice about asking Vicky for help with a problem because I am confident she would find a solution.
“Nimble Media enables DMUK to produce the magazine month after month to a high calibre and on time, which is very reassuring.
“If standards are not maintained at the level members and advertisers expect then it could be very damaging, not only to our reputation but also our revenue – we could lose subscribers and advertisers.
“In fact, since Nimble Media’s involvement in the magazine revenues have increased.
“I have recommended Vicky to several contacts in the charity sector and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again.”
