Fanbytes counts Apple, Nike, McDonald’s, Deliveroo and even the UK government as its clients.

Armoo thinks “the variable to success now is not about budget or how much you can spend – the variable is content.” He created Fanbytes whilst still studying at university. Within years, the company has won recognition from international publications like Forbes and Business Insider. Bloomberg has even described it as “leading the charge for Gen Z and millennial marketing”.
