V4B Business Finance wins place on Sky Media SME100
We are delighted that Sky Media has chosen us to take part in its SME100 initiative. It is a £2million support scheme for small businesses, giving us access to TV advertising through AdSmart.
As part of the V4B Group we have supported businesses for almost 30 years which means as a small business ourselves we understand the challenges, especially over the past year.
Recovering from the pandemic has been tough for many small businesses so we are extremely grateful to participate. As a result, it will allow us to reach even more businesses, providing the help and support they need to prosper in 2021.
Through the scheme, 100 small businesses will receive £20,000 of TV advertising across Sky Media’s channels. In addition to a free 12-month superfast business broadband and digital phone package. Courtesy of Sky Connect – Sky’s new B2B telecoms business.
Nation emerges from lockdown
Sky launched the initiative because it wanted to help small businesses succeed and stay connected to their customers. Boosting their recovery as the nation emerges from lockdown.
It is a huge boost and will allow us to provide support for SMEs requiring business finance. We are already known as a reputable, trustworthy company. By promoting our services through Sky’s TV advertising we will spread the message further. As a result, more businesses can grow, invest, and thrive this year and beyond.
Sky Media SME100 initiative
Stephen van Rooyen, EVP & CEO UK & Europe at Sky, said: “Small British businesses are more important to the UK economy than ever before. The pandemic has hit them hard, and we want to ensure they can bounce back even stronger. Through the SME100 scheme, we’re offering industry-leading products to help them stay connected to their customers and most importantly, increase their sales and revenue.”
Sky has already put us in touch with some creative agencies in our local area. They will help design and create our TV campaign. The advert will be shown between some of Sky’s fantastic content during September.

AdSmart from Sky will deliver the campaign. Its new technology means a brand can reach households by postcode, within a designated distance of their store, by household make-up or lifestyle. In only targeting audiences that matter to the business, brands can provide advertising that is relevant, accessible, and drive business results.
It is a new venture for us and we are hoping to promote the benefits of alternative finance to businesses that need our support and are looking to grow.
