Now he can work for you and so, after he cooked up an amazing feast for an event we organised, we thought it would be great to say thanks in our own special way…through the medium of video.

We recorded a video (click here to see it) testimonial highlighting the excellent work that he had done and it was posted on social media outlets such as Facebook, Twitter, Linked In etc.

The results were amazing according to Chris with the number of hits rapidly adding up in a short space of time. “I can’t believe we have had over 2,000 hits on the video in just two days,” he said. Although we were happy, we weren’t too surprised. As we constantly point out to our clients and friends, embedding video or using links to You Tube are guaranteed to increase your traffic, not only on your dedicated website but also through the numerous social media channels at your fingertips.


We are also pleased to report that Chris was so delighted with our help for his new business, he’s offered to cook up a storm for us the next time we are in Yorkshire. That’s one promise www will definitely follow up on.

We wish him the very best of good fortune with his new venture




Social Media Video for Cat Care Awards

When our client Ceva Santé Animale scooped a series of ‘gongs’ at the recent International Cat Care 2016 Awards, we were there with our cameras and able to broadcast the success on social media within minutes.

Ceva UK’s companion animal team, led by the newly appointed Managing Director for the UK and Ireland, Cüneyt Seçkin, was delighted to be invited once again to the annual International Cat Care Awards, hosted at the impressive Kensington Roof Gardens in central London.

The team was thrilled to learn that Ceva was to be awarded, not one, but TWO AWARDS at the event.

Award winning Feliway Friends


Amodip®, the first veterinary licensed amlodipine for cats, was awarded the Easy To Give award which values medicines that make life a little easier for owners to administer to their cats. They had barely returned to their seats, when they were invited on stage once again to collect an award for The Cat Friendly category, awarded to Feliway Friends®. The Cat Friendly Award recognises products which have made a real difference to cat well being and welfare.

Good Call Media helps to operate Ceva TV for Ceva and, using our skills from our days with the BBC, we are able to produce top quality video content as and when events happen so our cameras were at the Awards, held against the beautiful backdrop of the Kensington Roof Gardens in the centre of London in the UK. The video footage was used on Twitter, Facebook, Linked In and Galaxy, which is Ceva’s own internal intranet site that features Ceva TV as a key component in the communication mix.
