Public RelationsPR Services

A good Public Relations campaign requires creativity, careful consideration, planning and an awareness of the bigger picture. That’s why we treat PR as one discipline within the broader marketing spectrum.  PR works best in harmony with your overall marketing plan and that is why it’s included in our marketing retainer packages..

Our PR services are completely flexible, so even if you don’t sign up to a general marketing retainer, we can provide PR alone through an exclusively PR-focused retainer or adhoc for single events and projects.

It’s worth remembering that PR isn’t just about press releases and newspaper coverage anymore. Today’s digital platforms offer major publicity that crosses way into the marketing discipline and reaches audiences virally; through real time events; via other people’s blogs and across social media platforms.

If your business needs to generate publicity for whatever reason, we’ll take a look at your objectives and figure out the best way to put you in the limelight.

 Personal PR

We also take on clients who require personal PR and profile enhancing across many industries, including the corporate, academic and entertainment sectors. Our media links are growing stronger with each new day.  We are current and are aim to achieve significant coverage for clients in the local media as well as national, keeping them in the public eye and talked about for all the right reasons.

Getting to know our clients is something we do best. We forge close relationships with all of our clients and that’s how we achieve the results that we do for them. We can’t work on their behalf and act as their spokespeople, without understanding them and their goals properly.

So we can set you up on the right social media platforms and show you how to manage them, from the setting up the visual elements to make the right impression and creating the right tone of voice for your business; to content planning, scheduling and assessing the analytics and engagement rates.

We can search and post content, manage interactions and direct messages and when necessary, relay anything back to you that needs to be addressed in-house.

We Offer Monthly Management Services, Single Campaign Management or simply post sharing through our vast social media network.

We can provide:

  • Social strategy
  • Account set up and management for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram
  • Campaign planning
  • Content scheduling
  • Facebook ad management
