WHAT WE DO

Brand Publicity

When it comes to promoting brands, we pride ourselves on being industry leaders. It doesn’t matter whether we are working with big and well established brands or young challengers, we combine imaginative flair with specialist expertise to create high-impact brand campaigns. We are skilled at building brand stories and in managing strategic communications that achieve maximum exposure and return on investment. 

Trade PR

We have always pioneered a progressive and tailored approach to trade communications. Our clients have on-call access to our knowledge and experience and we help them to manage and maximise important business milestones alongside the natural ebb and flow of the licensing calendar. We are experts in developing and amplifying communications for the long term which is how lucrative franchises are built.  

Influencer Outreach

Peer to peer recommendations are an increasingly important influence on consumer purchasing. We work across social media with a wide range of parenting, lifestyle and celebrity influencers and we organise themed outreach campaigns to showcase our clients’ products throughout the year. We are skilled at telling simple but very effective brand stories and our campaigns are often linked to current issues or seasonal hooks, whilst reinforcing positive brand messaging and driving retail sales. 

Events

A package through the letterbox is great but nothing compares to experiencing a brand in real life. We create and host successful hot ticket events using our own network to attract attendees who will generate a social buzz as well as national press coverage and positive word of mouth. From partying with PJ Masks to Fun in the Foyer at the Peppa Pig cinema premiere, our bespoke events make a positive impact and add the magic feel good factor every time.

Celebrity Seeding

We understand just how effective a celebrity endorsement can be in raising the commercial potential of products and brands. So we monitor the media closely in order to identify and build meaningful relationships with celebrities that can represent your brand. We have a strong track record in targeting celebs with tailored products and packages that translate seamlessly into wide-reaching media coverage that has impact and, often, longevity.

Major Anniversaries

A major anniversary or milestone is the perfect opportunity for a brand to celebrate. We specialise in making the most of these anniversaries with multi-platform PR activity spanning print, broadcast, online and social media. This might include talent interviews and celebrity seeding or showcasing new products and creating news stories. This involves working closely with multiple key stakeholders to celebrate those big milestones with impact and style.
