ALL THINGS PR

Public relations is about reputation. A strategic, targeted public relations campaign helps to build that reputation and to tell your brand story. Through merging traditional PR with online communications we take a strategic approach to promoting your products or services; building credibility and trust, as we go, with your customers, employees and other stakeholders. Our experience and knowledge allows us to suggest and implement the best strategies and channels for client messages….plus add that all important sprinkle of creativity.

ALL THINGS DIGITAL

We know digital, live digital, and would eat digital if we could. We’re able to work with you to develop a digital marketing plan, whether it’s for a short-term promotional campaign, or a long-term strategy to increase your audience and traffic. We can train you to have the skills you need to manage your own social media channels, or we can manage them for you. From social media management, search engine optimisation (SEO), pay-per-click advertising, user experience (UX) reporting to website analytics and email marketing.

ALL THINGS INTEGRATED

It isn’t the hit, creative viral video that is going to bring automatic business success. It’s the hit viral video that links to engaging Facebook and Twitter accounts with interesting articles, blogs, competitions and company endeavours.  It’s the ability to easily use these sites to find a product, peruse user reviews and recommendations, or voice customer service concerns. It’s the TV ad that drives excitement over a new mobile app, and the mobile app that leads a customer to the nearest store. It is all about having an integrated approach.
