Barcadia Media is a modern media and publishing company based in the sunny seaside town of Blackpool, Lancashire. We provide marketing and email broadcast solutions for finance and property professionals, as well as three popular online trade publications; Financial Reporter, Property Reporter and the newly-introduced Commercial Reporter.
Founded in 2009 by owners Andy Shields and James Lucas, Barcadia aims to offer intelligent, effective marketing solutions and we do all this by working together, sharing responsibilities, hearing each other out, working to each of our strengths, having a beer or two at the end of the day... anything that will keep the wheel turning.
We love a challenge and we love the chance to meet new people and show what we can do.
We're Barcadia Media and we'd love to hear from you.
With three trade publications covering financial services, commercial finance and property, we have our finger on the pulse – so we're always in touch with who's reading the news and what issues and topics matter to them. We provide an unbiased and current look at a range of markets, attracting over 75,000 readers per month.
We know your clients. We know how to get their attention. Our marketing campaigns deliver your message via our extensive business databases and in-house email broadcast systems, so that you can say exactly what you want, to exactly the right people.
Good design is a combination of unique ideas and clear communication, and that's exactly what our in-house creative team provides. We're experts in creating digital media, in a variety of formats, from inbox-friendly emails to animated web-banners, and with a wealth of experience in online design, you can be sure it will get the job done.
Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
We constantly have our finger on the pulse – our news publications deliver the latest in financial, property, and commercial news with straightforward reporting and a wealth of industry insight and comment.
Financial Reporter is market-leading in its space, offering a clear & unbiased look at the industry as well as the latest comment and opinion from those in the know to an audience of financial intermediaries, lenders and product providers.
Property Reporter has a wide audience from landlords & letting agents to property investors and covers a range of topics as well as expert insight into the property market.
Carving its own space in a niche area of the industry, Commercial Reporter is the newest addition to our publications and offers a unique focus on the commercial market.
The Barcadia Media team are a tight-knit, highly motivated group of people. We play to our individual strengths to ensure the best quality service for our clients and believe a positive attitude goes a long way.
