Why we think long-distance relationships really do work
Have you ever been in a long-distance relationship? If so, you’ll no doubt have already formed your own thoughts on how well things tend to go when travelling is involved…yes, it takes time and effort to keep it alive, but at Shuttlefish, we believe that just means you must make the most of the time you have together.
You may have guessed but we’re not a dating agency here at Shuttlefish and shouldn’t be giving advice to help you with your significant other. That’s why we’re not talking romantically here, we’re talking about long-distance relationships from a business perspective! And we find working with clients located further away no different than working with those near to our studio just outside Stratford-upon-Avon.
We do have several local clients in and around the Warwickshire area and it is quite nice to be able to swing by and say hello as and when we fancy it, but in the digital age, it’s so easy to send and receive briefs and creative work that a few more miles between us won’t ever hold us back.
At Shuttlefish, we already work with clients in Merseyside, Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, West Midlands, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Greater London, Wiltshire, Sussex, Surrey, Devon, Dorset, Kent, even as far as Stirling in Scotland and Swansea in Wales! So, wherever you are, it’s no problem at all.
A longer distance between us may mean that it takes us a little longer to get to meetings and we can’t just pop in for a cuppa tea, but we’ll be there for all the important stuff; whether it’s a launch event, open day or anything else, we’re more than happy to travel and be there for support whenever possible. If you think about how many businesses allow remote working, it’s the same for an advertising agency – if our staff don’t always need to be in the office, our clients don’t need to be either!
As long as that mutual affection remains and you’re willing to put in the work, which we always are, there’s no reason why a long-distance working relationship should ever fail. So, do you fancy arranging a blind date with Shuttlefish sometime soon? We’d love to meet up for a coffee and a chat. Wherever you’re based, why don’t you get in touch and find out what we can do for you? We’re positive we can make it work, no matter how far apart we are.
