There's a lot of bunkum talked about how to handle press and public relations. But when it comes to press relations we have broken the mould: our approach is smart and simple.
Send us an outline - in no more than 500 words - of the material you want to project.
Then for a bargain fee of £250* we will sprinkle it with stardust, turn it into a story that will grab attention, and send it out to the right print and broadcast media.
We strongly recommend sending pictures with your press release and we can lay on a photographer - and one with the right kind of picture ideas - anywhere in the UK.
We get constantly stories into print in the pages of Britain's national daily and Sunday newspapers, so we KNOW how to project your story at every level, national, regional, local or specialist and trade press.
In the modern age of digital photography and instant e-mail communication it's easy for companies to fall into the trap of thinking that anyone can issue a press release.
But 99% of those will be junked. The reality is that ever more e-mail material is dropping on the screens of busy journalists. And the more dross there is the LESS likely any message will see the light of day.
You only need to look at the "DELETED" baskets on the screens of busy news editors to see what happens to press releases that are churned out by well-meaning amateurs or by PR companies who vastly over-charge for their services.
If you want a PR person to hold your hand, massage your ego, and make you pay through the nose for their service... you have come to the wrong place!
If your want a savvy journalist who can turn your material into the kind of press release that GETS NOTICED then
you have come to the right place!

* The bargain rate includes the price of a phone call "interview" with a journalist assigned to turning your press release into a story. (More extensive treatment is available at low rates!)
