Why work with us?
Quite simply because we’re good at what
With a huge network of media contacts within hospitality and leisure, to say that we’re ‘well connected’ is a pretty big understatement! ‘It isn’t what you know but who you know’ as the saying goes, but we’d argue that having a strong foundation of knowledge is just as important as having a ‘grade A’ list of contacts. The fact that we bring both of those together is one of our greatest strengths.
We have a breadth of social media experience within the team and work closely with our clients to incorporate social media in to their communications and maximise on real-time opportunities. That said, we haven’t forgotten how influential print and broadcast can be and make sure we implement the right balance tailored specifically to each client.
Last but by no means least, we’re results driven. We ensure that we work closely with our clients in order to develop and agree key objectives and always aim to exceed expectation. We like to be seen as an extension of our clients’ team. We don’t baffle with marketing jargon, no false promises, just honest recommendations designed to generate the right results.
