Patience is a Virtue

16th April 2014

The other day, I was travelling on a bus as part of my usual morning commute. It might sound a bit dull, but here’s a surprising amount of action on a sleepy double-decker at 7am. With the U…

Communication through humour is on the up. If you want someone to listen to your marketing message, make them laugh and you're in with a shot.
 
As a brand, Funny Women has cornered today’s hardest-to-reach audience. LOHAS (Life Styles of Health and Sustainability) are people who spend their money on what they believe in, no matter what they earn. They are very now, very hard to reach, and very, very valuable. LOHAS are 60% female - they are also our audience. 
 
For brands wanting to get right to the core of a predominantly female target market, we have the answer. With 11 years experience of providing a platform for a new generation of female talent, we know just how much the LOHAS like to enjoy life and like to have FUN.
 
In the current economic climate, collaboration is the key. We offer our brand partners visibility, originality and credibility at our live events and in our virtual environments, with real potential for long term awareness.
  
We have a full programme of shows and events for 2014 and we are looking for sponsors, business partners, media partners, venues, prizes, resources and commissions. We want to find new, fresh ways to work with interesting businesses and invite you to take a look at us.
 
Please call on 020 8948 4444 or email lynne@funnywomen.com and find out how having fun can be rewarding.
 

What our sponsors say

"Thought that the production and planning of this year's Funny Women Awards were totally fab - was really impressed and contrary to popular belief we are a pretty hard to please bunch - we just hide it well. Not..."
 
Benefit Cosmetics (2012 & 2013) 
 
 
“Funny Women was a perfect fit for Babycham. It is all about women, it addresses serious issues yet it does it so in a unique way that is both fun and engaging. 
 
“With more than 50 years of heritage and a unique place in the affections of women of all generations, it was very important for Babycham to find the right partner to work with. For three years Funny Women has been a vital element in the work to build a reputation for Babycham as a credible and relevant brand for women, and to do it in a cost-effective way. 
 
“We are delighted with the results and the association. It has also been great fun and rewarding to be part of something that is really building momentum. 
 
“Any brand with women as it's main focus would find, like we have, that a relationship with Funny Women creates a unique awareness through fun and glamorous activities without losing sight of issues that are important to women.”
 
Babycham (2003- 2005)
 
"Designed by women, for women, the Sheilas' Wheels brand perfectly complemented Funny Women - with its amusing yet serious side - and the sponsorship package reaped benefits in terms of PR coverage across print and online, extraordinary corporate hospitality opportunities that can't be bought 'off the shelf' and strong brand awareness amongst the company's target audience. 
 
"The events programme provided Sheilas' Wheels' PR team with a platform to entertain journalists of the nationals, trades and women's press - offering them something fun and different - whilst promoting the brand and its values.  
"All events have been professional and well-promoted and at the comedy awards we were extremely impressed by the high standard of entrants. Lynne Parker and the Funny Women team are a passionate, hard-working and dedicated bunch who go the extra mile to make everything they touch a success. 
 
"We would whole-heartedly recommend this sponsorship opportunity to any company that targets women - of all ages and walks of life." 
 
Sheilas' Wheels (2006)
 
"We just wanted to congratulate you on a truly brilliant event last night. From a brand perspective, the event was a truly warm hearted and positive experience, which reflects very well what the Nivea brand is all about.
 
“The quality of talent making it through to the final really is a credit to the credibility of the competition. The contribution which Funny Women makes to the comedy industry is certainly a really important one and it was fantastic to see so many talented new female stand ups have the opportunity to perform in front of not only a number of comedy opinion formers but also a very receptive and supportive audience."
 
Nivea (2007 & 2008)
