Press releases

Press releases are the back bone of any PR and marketing plan. They can introduce a new product, service or technology; profile new appointments, investments or acquisitions; and cover projects won or other industry successes. Our press releases are succinct and convey a clear message every time.

We develop a circulation list for each of our customers, targeting key trade press and media.

Case studies

A case study demonstrates how a product or service is used in practice and highlights the benefits to the end user. We produce accurate and interesting case studies through research, liaison and sound technical understanding. They can be widely used as part of a company’s marketing strategy. We often match our case study plans to magazine feature lists to ensure maximum coverage.

Articles

The articles we write cover products, services, companies and markets. They aim to educate and inform, usually highlighting unique selling points.

Our articles explain complex products, services or concepts in an accessible form, concentrating on the benefits they bring to the user.

Articles may include company profiles, informational and educational pieces, expert columns and opinion pieces.

Examples:

Digital media

Regular contact with customers helps to inform them of products and services that may be of interest to them. It also gives them a feel for how you operate as a company and provides openings for one to one contact. It is an environmentally friendly method of communication and a cheap alternative to fliers, mini brochures and leaflets.
