Social agency Media Bounty announces collaboration with Tamlo to service Japanese businesses targeting UK and Europe

Will London and Tokyo move closer post-Brexit?

Creative social media agency Media Bounty has announced a tie-up with Tamlo, a British subsidiary of successful Japanese content marketing business Tam Co. Ltd.

Media Bounty will be collaborating with Tamlo to develop social media marketing services for Japanese businesses looking to strengthen their position in the UK and Europe.

Tam Co. Ltd was founded in 1992 in Osaka, and has further offices in Tokyo, Singapore and San Francisco. It launched into the UK as Tamlo in May 2017 - a significant move given the recent meeting between Theresa May and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, which firmly hinted at the prospect of a lucrative UK-Japan trade deal, post-Brexit.

Yuichi Ishino, managing director of Tamlo, said: “We are very aware that marketing via social media is becoming more complicated and global by the day. Despite this, we believe that our collaboration will directly respond to market trends so that we are able to support clients who wish to expand or promote their businesses worldwide, with a special focus on Japan and the UK.”

Matt Webster, co-founder of Media Bounty, said: “Our expertise in providing long-term brand growth through deep insight, outstanding strategy and kick ass creative on social is a natural fit with TAM’s ethos. We look forward to working with Yuichi and Tamlo in providing continued value and expert consultation – especially with regard to the Japan-based clients looking to move operations and services into the UK and Europe”.

Media Bounty works with brands such as Bodyform, Heinz, Boots and Seriously Strong Cheddar to achieve long-term brand growth through social.
