in-depth industry knowledge and insight you can recognise new market opportunities and think strategically about how to tap into these. Every PR marketing and communications activity should start with intelligence, so we never stop
Genius may be 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration, but with respect to Mr Edison it’s the 1% that makes the difference. B2B PR, marketing and communications relies on knowing your audience and understanding their challenges, but it takes a creative approach to actually engage them. Businesses don’t buy from other businesses, people do. That’s why we always look for inventive ways to present an idea,
message or product.
People use an increasing range of channels to find and share information, but the core principle remains the same - communication is built on conversations. Whether you’re trying to retain customer loyalty, build brand awareness or generate new leads, you need to use influence to change people’s perceptions. Building relationships with opinion formers and influencers is at the heart of every campaign we develop.

A new appreciation of print
Author: Steph Hieatt
The Baader-Meinhof phenomenon, otherwise known as frequency illusion, occurs when the thing you’ve just noticed or been told about seems to crop up constantly. You know how it is; you’re looking for a new car and then, everywhere you go, you start to see that particular make and model.

Are PR stunts still a safe marketing tactic?
Author: Michael Grass
Had you been wandering down the Southbank on the sunny morning of May 16th this year, you may have noticed a giant green figure looming over the assorted dinghies and tourist boats docked on the river Thames. And while the movie geek in me would’ve loved to see headlines announcing Godzilla’s arrival to our UK shores, it was actually a statue of the PG Tips monkey (him from the Johnny Vegas ads) made out of 110,486 plastic leaves. As it turns out, the chimp’s merry trip down the stream was a PR stunt that aimed to raise awareness of a then soon to be released ‘green paper' report by PG tips which promoted its green tea project.

The battle of the Christmas ads – light-hearted humour replaces “sadvertising”
Author: Alexa Mills
It’s that time of year again when my inner ‘video nerd’ comes out to play and I studiously watch the Christmas ads released by the big retailers. Each year (without fail) the concepts get cleverer, the wider campaigns (beyond the TV ads) get more creative and the parodies get funnier.

How innovative packaging can help eliminate food waste
Author: Ellie Bunce
Did you know that UK homes throw away on average 7 million tonnes of food and drink a year, the total value of which is estimated at a massive £12.5 billion? It’s no wonder that food waste is high on the national news agenda at the moment with retailers such as Sainsbury’s and Tesco taking a stand to help tackle the issue.

Time to take a closer look at digital technology for direct-to-container printing?
Author: Greg Mills
At the last Direct Container Print (DCP) conference in Dusseldorf last November, Douglas Hutt of SABMiller, who was participating in a panel discussion about direct-to-container printing, commented: “Digital (printing) won’t replace any of the analogue packaging formats; it will just complement it.” Although he did go on to say that it will provide “different, better… more efficient… more effective ways to manage your brand...” and may not be as far off the mark as Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, who remarked in 1943 that there would be “a world market for maybe five computers", the continuous evolution of digital technology, even in direct to container printing, is likely to prove Mr Hutt wrong.

An appetite for instruction
Author: Louise Lazell
With World Vegan Day held earlier this month and now over 540,000 vegans in the UK, I think it’s fair to say that veganism is becoming more ‘mainstream’. And while when discussing this ‘lifestyle’ with friends, family and colleagues, their views on it can sometimes become a little heated, I think the one thing ‘omni’s’ and herbivores can agree on is that there is still a real inconvenience to being vegan when out and about.
