“I think the stats online speak for themselves. My number of Twitter followers has increased by 150% in the last 6 months – mainly through Passle.”

Gareth Eggle is the Head of Insurance at Flint Hyde, a boutique search firm. Flint Hyde’s communications strategy, as a search firm, was primarily direct client contact (over the phone, at meetings, or through attended and organised events). The market is saturated by firms with large advertising budgets, making it harder for SMEs to compete. ‘As the market I was targeting is somewhat saturated by firms with large advertising budgets, I was seeking an alternative, content led marketing strategy, which Passle facilitates’, says Gareth.


Passle facilitates an alternative, content-led marketing strategy, that allows Flint Hyde to compete with larger firms. For Eggle, it is a “significant opportunity to save my time, and share significantly more content”. Using Passle has significantly increased Eggle’s digital profile, bringing him numerous opportunities, some of which are outlined below.
