►  NOTEEvery client who has used the eBritNews service has reported great response.  One Ft. Lauderdale employer seeking local British staff —who already had their US work visa—was so pleased he used our service 3 times.    Another told me:  ” Patricia, within hours of your email going out I had the British applicants I wanted…with more coming in for days. All local Brits.   Thank you—-and yes we DID hire people from your email.” 

►  2017:  ABOUT OUR DATABASE, compiled since 1991 and updated weekly.     We have Florida’s entire resident British community sorted by local area code, so we can target for clients.    The eBritNews eblast goes out direct to thousands of British individuals plus British clubs, British businesses, British associations, the British Consulate office, Florida Association of British Business members,  the 4 British-American Chamber and  BABC chapters in Florida,  British Network meeting attendees, the British Business Council of Miami, British pubs and English tearooms plus British readers of the Florida column of the former Union Jack Newspaper.   We also send it to the many Americans who have British spouses or business partners, others connected to the large resident British community and have dealings with us.  It also reaches our UK associates and UK-Based Brits planning to move here,  British Bureau clients and FABB members.    You are paying for access to our British contacts database, built up over 2 decades,  which takes us considerable time to maintain and input new contacts,  plus our professional copywriting skills to create an effectively-worded email to appeal to Brits.   BONUS:  Each Briton in our database has many more contacts in his/her email address book they forward our eBritNews to. This reaches a greater audience for you.  he additional strength of the eBritnews is that recipients forward it to other Brits in their address books. Also to many Social Media outlets like Facebook, Linked-In, Twitter, Instagram et al.   Also entered into our database are the email addresses of everybody who attends the monthly British Network meetings [established in 1992 ] —that’s 12 meetings  a year for 25 years.     Compiled over the 2 decades the British Bureau of Florida has been in business,  our statewide database also includes British and Anglophile readers of Patricia Kawaja’s Florida column in the former Union Jack British Newspaper. These are Florida readers who contacted her directly over the 24 years.  Likewise, we add everybody who asks to receive the eBritnews via the Contact Us page on www.britishflorida.com and other Brits who contact our office for any reason, plus every attendee of our British Bureau events in Miami.   Everybody on our email list are opt-in resident Brits and Anglophile Americans.  Many local promoters and organizations have used it over the years for events promotion.

► ►  You are paying for the use of our vast British contacts database built up since 1991, which takes many business hours and dollars to maintain, plus our professional marketing/copywriting skills to appeal specifically to Brits.   For instance:   Do you have an event to promote to the British community—sell more tickets by sending out an eBritNews direct to Brits, promoting your event.      Do you want to hire British staff for your company?   Employers have had particular success with our niche head-hunting service, for those to hire resident Brits [in all parts of Florida] . They already have a work visa, so no sponsorship necessary!    

Example 1 of hundreds:   In October 2000, Bloomingdale’s in Boca was hosting a promotion of Wedgwood English china with Her Highness the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson making a personal appearance. Obviously the British community would be hugely interested in attending this event.  Bloomingdale’s and Wedgwood PR people did not have a British contacts database, so they hired the British Bureau to invite South Florida Brits.    As a result their audience was full of local Brits who bought china, making buck$$$ for Bloomies!      Example 2.  :    A California TV company making a programme needed to find a British person anywhere in USA who has built a British pub inside their home. They would fly their crew to anywhere in 50 states to film it. They had heard about my work even in California and phoned me.  I found them their needle in a haystack–the ONLY one. They happily paid my fee, flew a crew to Florida, filmed and aired the show.  “There would have been no programme without your help, Patricia,”  the producer told me.
