That is what Bravr is all about.
Bravr (pronounced braver) is a London based “boutique” digital marketing agency with a global client base across four continents.
As an agency, we specialise in one core thing; helping our clients achieve spectacular growth, even in the toughest market conditions and competitive landscapes. We achieve this by encouraging our clients to challenge what they think is possible and constantly pushing hard to exceed their stated goals and expectations.
We believe that by doing this, and operating in an open and collaborative way with our clients and partners, we deliver market beating solutions. This ethos runs through everything we do today, from our service offerings, staff ethos, recruitment and dedication to continued learning.

Ethos and Ethics
Life is too short for work not to be fun. Apart from sleep, it’s what we spend the majority of time doing, so like to make it as enjoyable as possible. We encourage a dynamic and lively work environment within our offices, and like to socialise with our clients as well as just deliver exceptional marketing results. It is our belief that if people enjoy something, they are typically good at it.
We believe that you only get exceptional results if you work hard. It is for this reason that we invest heavily in our staff development. Our team not only have a robust work ethic, but are highly ambitious and enjoy work. We have found our work ethic to be on of Bravr’s critical differentiators and why you’ll find us burning the candle at both ends when needed.
Honesty and transparency are important to us. We believe that integrity and having a strong drive to do the right thing goes hand-in-hand with good business. This dramatically impacts the way we run Bravr, how we support our staff and how we work with clients. While this may seem like an outdated approach to some, we have found strong business ethics never go out of fashion.
At Bravr, we believe in a culture of continuous learning and development. The digital world is constantly evolving, and we always make sure we are a few steps ahead. We heavily invest in our staff by helping them gain professional qualifications and attend relevant events that will aid their career development. We work hard to develop an inquisitive, questioning and knowledge-hungry team.
Time and again, experience has taught us that working together as a team generates better results (and a better environment) than trying to go it alone. Whether that means a quick brainstorm internally, our annual summer offsite trip or regular informal client gatherings, building and maintaining a team ethos is central to everything we do. It’s why we are able to build great relationships with clients.
There are no ivory towers at Bravr. Our management are “in the trenches” with the rest of the team, driving exceptional results. This committed, enthusiastic attitude extends to how we manage accounts and communicate with clients. We don’t position ourselves as a third party service provider, but as a marketing partner, who can be relied upon to deliver outstanding results.
Shahin Fard, CEO & Founder of Bravr
Shahin Fard, a true techie, started programming at the age of 7. By 12, Shahin supported local businesses with PC tech support for lunch money. As he matured, he continued to focus his studying on Computer Science both in the UK and the US. In 1999, Shahin taught himself HTML/CSS/JS and built a website to promote his passion for music. His early adoption of web technology and IT skills landed Shahin Fard a job at Cheapflights.com in 2000, joining as the sixth member.
Quickly progressing in Cheapflights as the webmaster leading a team of front-end web developers and company IT administator, Shahin built a solid technical foundation before moving swiftly into digital marketing in 2002. Armed with the CEO’s credit card, Shahin Fard started Cheapflights first Google AdWords campaign, buying paid traffic and optimising Cheapflights SEO supporting business growth and profitability.
Through continuous innovation on both PPC and SEO, Cheapflights dominated the search engines during Shahin Fard’s tenure, growing revenue exponentially each year. An independent review put Cheapflights at the top of the SEO charts with a 100% perfect score in SEO visibility.
In 2009 Shahin left Cheapflights looking for the next big challenge, enter Bravr (previously equals3). With a strong team with complementary skills, Bravr has been successful and profitable since launch. When Shahin isn’t working at Bravr he’s heavily involved into building and racing cars. With a home built 10 sec 1/4 mile drag racing Skyline GTR with over 900bhp, and a Pro Drift car with routes from a well known Japanese D-shop his need for performance and pushing limits is reflected in his professional and personal life.
Shahin takes personal care of each client of Bravr, he is always at hand to provide strategic insight into the Bravr team and Bravr clients. His view is the company is one big family, and clients are an extension of that family.
