Eddison Media is pleased to announce the sponsorship of National Hunt Jockey James Cowley. The Jockey will be wearing Eddison-Media branded breeches during the current National Hunt season.

James is a Conditional jockey which is the National Hunt (over jumps) equivalent to the apprentice jockey on the flat. Conditional jockeys can claim a weight allowance until the point where he or she has won 75 races or reaches the age of 26. This knocks off a few pounds from the horses allotted weight in any handicap race. The weight allowance system allows for less experienced jockeys to compete for rides with the seasoned professionals.

James is learning his trade with Grand National winning trainer Donald McCain at Bankhouse in Cheshire. He is already well on his way to ‘losing his claim’ and turning professional, we hope our sponsorship will help this young jockey achieve his ambition.

We recently caught up with James at Bangor-On-Dee racecourse where he was riding in the Deva Racing Handicap Hurdle. Below you can view a gallery of the photos we took on the day.

If you’re interested in checking out the benefits of jockey sponsorship then you can read the PJA guide here. It’s worth noting that the average jockey covers over 40,000 miles traveling between racecourses in the UK and your branding can be displayed on their vehicles and clothing traveling to and from meetings. On course a jockey can display branding on one of three pre-approved areas of clothing: Breeches, Neck Roll and Coccyx. If your jockey wins a big race then you can be assured that your brand will gain additional exposure on television and in the press.

www.diamond-rings.me.uk is the newest entry into Eddison-Media’s website portfolio, rings is not a market that we’ve entered into before and we’ll be interested to see how the site performs. Diamond-Rings.me.uk allows visitors who are looking for engagement rings or other types of diamond rings to quickly search through multiple UK suppliers.

The ring merchants are sourced from AffiliateWindow (one of my favorite networks) and the site is built with WordPress and custom templates. As yet we’ve not sold a single ring! but the site is still very new and we’re waiting for google to trawl all the pages. Fingers crossed for the first sale soon.

Scratch-Cards.me.uk started out as a fairly small website which we produced on a whim and never really believe would be that popular. We couldn’t have been more wrong! As often happens in affiliate marketing the websites you least expect to become successful end up becoming blockbusters. That’s not to say the traffic levels of Scratch-Card.me.uk are out of this world, but it does seem that visitors really engage with the site content and conversion rates are very high.

Recently we added our first video reviews and video game previews of all the scratch cards available to play thru Scratch-Cards.me.uk. The high quality videos are produced with iShowU HD capture software and uploaded to Vimeo.

The site currently features games from Jackpot Joy, Scratch2Cash, Crown Bingo, Will Hill and Hoppa. We are always looking for more scratch card games to feature on the site, so if you have any recommendation then let us know ~ commenting is often the easiest way to contact us.
