Phil Spencer

Founder of Move iQ and Rhizome Media client.

I’ve worked in property and broadcasting for two decades, yet in all that time I’ve never come across anyone quite like Rhizome. Their passion, energy and sixth sense for what makes the media tick is breathtaking. They’re a joy to work with and consistently deliver stellar media coverage.

"I’ve worked in property and broadcasting for two decades, yet in all that time I’ve never come across anyone quite like Rhizome. Their passion, energy and sixth sense for what makes the media tick is breathtaking. They’re a joy to work with and consistently deliver stellar media coverage."

"Move iQ is a business with a mission: to be a mover’s champion that puts power in the hands of property buyers and renters. Rhizome instantly understood our vision, and their work doesn’t just deliver huge exposure, it reinforces our brand and helps us connect with people in a way advertising never could."

Dominic Hiatt, founder of Rhizome Media, blushed pink: “Property has been one of our specialist sectors for years and so it’s great to have Phil and Move IQ onboard as a client. They’re arming anyone seeking to move, rent or buy with valuable intel that’s simply not available elsewhere and we’ll be using everything in our media toolbox to get them out there.”

OUR WONDERFUL clients

the AA

2015 – Present
Since 2015, we’ve worked with the AA to raise the profile of its exciting subsidiary brands, such as AA Cars, the used car buying portal. One of our key goals has been to dispel the jaded, and frankly anachronistic image that car dealers are all Arthur Daley types with forecourts chock full of bangers and lemons.Through a combination of authoritative industry pieces, speedy responses to important monthly sector data and features and opinion pieces in the national and consumer media, our job is to distinguish and elevate the importance of the AA Cars brand in its own right.Recent proactive campaigns have swung between the heavy-hitting (the bearing of car finance deals on the longevity of ownership) and lighter (fastest selling used cars of 2020) ends of the scale, all the while placing AA Cars at the centre of the conversation around car buying and selling.

Uswitch

2011 – Present
We've worked with Uswitch for nigh on a decade and dovetail effortlessly with their internal comms team. Initially starting with their mobile and broadband division, we now take care of their utilities comparison service, too. For both of these flagship divisions, we set the news agenda with proactive analysis and research, and also comment reactively to breaking news.It's a rapid and intense news sector and so we're often up at 7am drafting comment on industry stories. While the news changes daily, our role remains the same: to break everything down into digestible, comprehensive and compelling copy that always seeks to answer the question: “What does this mean for consumers?”

Gatehouse Bank

2017 – Present
We love to peer forensically into the detail of every financial services space and Gatehouse, a Shariah-compliant ethical bank is a great example of Rhizome getting to grips with a niche area and turning it mainstream.‍Gatehouse’s senior management team set us the challenge of explaining to everyday British banking customers why Shariah-compliant savings accounts and home finance are a great alternative to the High Street. The result? Mountains of national media coverage and frequent appearances in the savings stories that personal finance journalists love to write, week in, week out. ‍From media training, journalist briefings and interviews to proactive data-led stories driven by our own research and reaction to breaking news, Gatehouse Bank’s profile has positively rocketed since we started working with them.

Public Affairs

Rhizome Media continuously monitors Government and regulatory policy for a number of its clients, ensuring they stay abreast of any and all changes — fiscal, legislative or corporate — that could impact or empower their businesses. When required, we also actively lobby Government on behalf of a number of our clients, with probably our biggest success to date being the 'Raise the Roof' campaign on behalf of property- and flat-sharing website, Spareroom.

In 2015, the then Chancellor, George Osborne, announced that from April 2016 the Government would increase the tax-free amount home owners could earn by renting out a room from £4,250 to £7,500 — a significant financial boost for anyone with a lodger, and a policy materially influenced by Rhizome's work on the Raise the Roof campaign.
