Happy Birthday To Us!!
Shaw Marketing Services Celebrates their 6th Anniversary

Six years ago we launched Shaw Marketing Services with just one small copywriting job at the beginning of Spain’s worst recession. Here we still are 6 years on, established with a great group of loyal clients and a fantastic stream of new business keeping us very busy and motivated.

Huge thanks to our loyal clients and supporters who have trusted and believed in us. Special thanks must go to property management and rental company HomeCareontheWeb who was one of our very first clients and who we still work with to this day as their blog writers. Also Specsavers, who we have worked with for four years now and helped to grow on the Costa del Sol, Costa Blanca and Mallorca.

We feel truly lucky to still be here when so many companies have failed and look forward to many more years ahead of us!

Marbella Classic Grand Prix

One of our latest projects is launching the first Marbella Classic Grand Prix which will see 50 classic cars take to Marbella’s streets on June 8th to compete in a regularity rally. This is an open road race following the rules of the Highway Code and is not a speed race, but an event of skill and timing including timed sections and special stages requiring split second accuracy, measured with hyper-sensitive timing equipment. These sections are completed at slow speeds without stopping the car and penalty points given for every 0.01 second difference from the allotted completion time.

There are still places available for people to take part in the race and there’s a special early bird price for anyone booking their place before Wednesday 15th June. All you need is a car made before 31st December 1980, two stop watches, a driver and co-driver to take part. If you would like to register to take part please visit

Sotogrande International School’s Yearbook

As you know, we’re always looking for cost-effective ways to reach target clients, so I wanted to share the opportunity to be included in Sotogrande International School’s Yearbook.

This is a publication which reaches all the students and parents of the school, as well as potential parents who visit the school for more information. It is a book that is created by the students and more than just a magazine, it is an important part of the school journey for the students and therefore is kept for many years.

There will be a guide at the back of the book, where all advertisers will be grouped by sector and easy to find with a user-friendly contents table. Prices start at 150€ for a third of a page, contact for prices and more information.
