About BoomBoom Media and the team. A local agency based in Barnstaple North Devon.

Graham Harris

Leader of BoomBoom Media

Born and raised in Barnstaple North Devon. I have over 14 years experience working in local press, online marketing and radio. I started my media career at the North Devon Journal as an Account Manager before serving a year in the Reserve Army in Iraq.

Upon my return I worked at the Journal for another 6 months before moving to the North Devon Gazette. In both roles my job was to look after the needs of my clients, their budgets and their advertising. I ensured that they had the best account management possible and that their advertising and marketing worked. 

I left the North Devon Gazette and worked for Heart Radio. Despite the change in the advertising medium my job was to ensure that the client was advised how to get the most out of their advertising. A good radio campaign on the right station can work wonders.

After only 6 months in the job I was asked to return to the North Devon Gazette to manage the team there. I was quickly promoted to Publisher and was given the Agi Trader and two rural magazines to run as well as the Wedding Factor, The North Devon Scene and My Town Bideford.
Whilst working for Archant I increased my media knowledge by taking an Online Marketing course both basic and advanced and a Social Media Management course.
I understand that the world of Media is changing and that each business needs different help, guidance and advice. There is no “one size fits all” marketing solution.

So BoomBoom Media was started. Based in Barnstaple North Devon, we understand that all business need to advertise and market themselves to succeed. We are a local company focussed on helping other local businesses thrive. Our business is about making your business succeed.

 

Hazel Knight

Content and Social Media Manager

Born and raised in Kent I moved to North Devon in 2002. Upon arriving and exploring the local communities, I began work within the telecommunications sector with customer service and satisfaction as the core focus. In 2004 I began working at the Dogs Trust Rehoming Centre in Ilfracombe and would relish working both with the dogs and those wishing to re-home them, however I left after the birth of my son to concentrate on my little bundle of joy and have loved nurturing my young family. From early 2015 I began my career in marketing where I specialised in social media on different media platforms and content creation. I have worked with many companies throughout North Devon ensuring that their social media is both current and converts into sales.  I have also specialised in increasing brand awareness, visibility and advertising along with content creation (blog writing, video creation, social media posting and eventing) I absolutely love my role at Boom Boom media and excel with a jam packed schedule. A big passion of mine is making sure that each customer realises their marketing potential and knowing that I can maximise their branding and increase their following  which boosts their sales.
