Commercial opportunities

Entrepreneurs are our thing...
As a dedicated supporter of entrepreneurship, BQ is making a real and tangible contribution to local, regional and national economic growth across the UK. We are completely unique in what we aim to achieve as a media brand, a brand which has established a loyal audience of high growth SMEs as well as leading business influencers. They wholeheartedly believe in BQ’s focus on people – those individuals that are challenging the traditional ways of doing things. They are our entrepreneurs.

A positive place in the market
BQ has an extensive reach in the UK of over 153,000 entrepreneurs, MDs and CEOs across Scotland, North East & Cumbria, Yorkshire, the North West, Midlands, Wales, the South East and the City of London and is an “alternative” publisher with a positive place in the market. The national strength of BQ is in its foundations – firmly rooted in local and regional business communities across the UK with unrivalled distribution and market penetration. We speak to thousands of businesses every day, so are ideally positioned to help you raise your profile or that of your clients and explain key propositions to the business community, but achieve this in a way which is unique, different,
and highly effective.

Vision and values that make us more than a publisher
BQ achieves this by blending regular digital activity, national magazines and thought leadership reports and events, matched with a range of innovative campaigns specifically designed to help businesses succeed and grow. BQ has a vision and values that make it more than a publisher - a national brand dedicated to making a positive difference to business. We are a collective of entrepreneurs, businesses and support partners, we are the BQ community, and we believe that by effectively telling positive stories, we can make a difference. We hope you do too.

We know what works...
Our capacity to think differently, and our understanding of the BQ audience and how to positively engage them means our audience value and trust our views and we can align your messaging with this intelligently to produce the very best results. BQ’s portfolio allows you to inform and influence at all levels and our creative campaigns have provided partners with commercial profile, business intelligence and connections that add value – something which BQ does very well. We can add value to your activity through collaboration and personalisation, leaving you without any doubt that we really can deliver something different.
