Creative agency The Works and content marketing agency Daresay banded together to offer their services to small businesses impacted by COVID-19 and the Australian bushfire crisis.

Dubbed ‘VanJams’, members of the two agencies travelled around New South Wales in TheWorks’ VW Combi van providing free consultations and practical digital and social media marketing and branding.

Damian Pincus, founder and creative partner at The Works said Van Jams is how the agency was started: “We started the agency almost two decades ago by driving our van to the doorsteps of businesses to solve their marketing problems,”

“After seeing the devastating effect COVID and the fires has had on many small businesses we wanted to do something to support their recovery and what better way to do it than get back in our van and bring our teams’ expertise direct to where they work.”
