what we do

We deliver bespoke, effective PR campaigns designed to meet specific objectives.

Media management

What do you want to say, and who do you want to say it to? Using a choice of different strategies, creative ideas, and our extensive contacts in the media, we can target news, features, arts and specialist coverage in newspapers, magazines, broadcast and online media. We can also investigate media partnerships and paid-for promotions.

Profile management

We can deliver a strategic plan to raise and manage your profile through the media, and directly with the stakeholders involved in your business or project. This can include crisis management,  influencing opinion through media and social media, and managing a story.

Events

From launches and press conferences to openings and fundraising events, we work with a wide range of suppliers and venues to create effective and inspiring events.

Book festivals

Working with the Borders Book Festival team, we delivered a prestigious annual book festival at Lennoxlove House in East Lothian from 2009 to 2013.  We have also delivered events for other festivals and have managed the PR for the Borders Book Festival for the last seven years.

Book prizes

For the last six years we have handled administration and publicity for the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction.  This has involved administration of entries, judging and prize events as well as all the marketing and media liaison for the Prize.

A new creative writing prize for young writers, the Young Walter Scott Prize, has been piloted during 2015, and we have been handling its PR and marketing.

Social media

We can plan and execute a social media strategy for your campaign or business.  Often we work with preferred suppliers and other consultants who have expertise in this field.
