The Scottish Sun
News International – Printworx Program

‘I attended the Keys to Success workshop in Glasgow with The Scottish Sun and the session was really interesting. Cheryl gave a great presentation and spoke passionately about the subject. Not only was I reminded of some of the basics again, but it redirected my focus on what I and our organisation have to do to be successful in the long term.’

Stuart Mcdowall – Director
City of Glasgow College.

The Scottish Sun
News International – Printworx Program

‘News International (Scotland) contracted inXcess to deliver their Printworx programme in March 2012. We had an extremely positive experience throughout.  The processes they have in place are clear, concise and highly professional from the delivery of the initial idea and supporting documentation, through to the telephone contact week when Nicola Walsh drove and controlled the sessions and finally to the seminars themselves when Cheryl proved to be an extremely effective presenter who engaged fully with business owners from the local Scottish market.  At the time of writing this we are following up on contacts made and are confident that an excellent revenue result will be achieved and we hope to be working closely with inXcess in the months and years to come.’

Independent Newspapers Ltd
Online Event Auction – Bid’n’Save

“The most important factor in the success of our first auction was the infrastructure provided by InXcess in the areas of system management tools, support, training and reporting. Our bidders and readers associated the newspapers with the professionalism of the bid process and infrastructure – real “First World” stuff in a somewhat Third World environment!”

John Millar, Project Manager Bid’n’Save, INL South Africa


News Communities
Printworx – Future Growth

“During my tenure as CEO of News Communities (Australia), I was involved with Cheryl and her team in the implementation of Forward Sales Programs designed to attract new advertisers to the group.

These were very successful and News Communities continues to run these programs to this day.   They resulted in over 500 new clients being signed in the first year at Cumberland Newspapers NSW, and across the group a total of over $8 Million was achieved in additional revenue.

I would recommend this program to any media company wanting to improve on their budgeted revenue for any given year. It is also an excellent way to attract new customers.

Cheryl is committed to empowering individuals to achieve their personal and professional goals whilst at the same time allowing them to achieve new skills by team building which comes as part of the program.”

Gene Swinstead, Director, GWS Consulting

Daniel Canny – Group Advertising Director – Messenger Community News

NT News
News Australia – Online Event Auction – browsebidandbuy

“As the Advertising Manager at the NT News in Darwin I was excited our organisation was able to secure inXcess to facilitate our auction. The creation of new opportunities with clients is paramount to success in our business and the inXcess auction program provided an acquisition strategy for clients who previously hd not advertised with us. It gave them the means to advertise in our products that they may not have necessarily had. Through the auction the NT News has been able to give our clients the privilege of choice when looking at advertising as we were able to offer newspaper solutions, magazine offerings and online opportunities. Overall the technology for the auction platform worked very well providing all of the reporting functionality I needed and the support from the inXcess team was great. What we aim to do for our next program is simple – more product and increase bidders, we learnt so much from the first year so I am confident we can continue to grow our auction site. “

Narelle Neville – Advertising Manager – NT News

Geelong Advertiser
News Australia – Online Event Auction – Bid Buy Local

“With the help of inXcess the Geelong Advertiser Group launched Bid Buy Local in 2010 with great success. After our first event 92% of bidders surveyed said they would participate in another Bid Buy Local online auction and almost 90% had referred friends or family to the website. The program has generated fantastic awareness and new customers for our advertisers and most importantly it’s delivered new clients and immediate incremental revenue to our bottom line – which we plan to grow year on year.”

Mark Hallo – Group Advertising Director – Geelong Advertiser
