We believe anyone can produce great PR results without the need for an expensive agency.
All it takes is passion for your business, some strategic planning, and great news, of course.
That’s why we’ve created an online platform where business owners can access the tools and services provided by a PR agency. With do-it-yourself resources and training you can achieve the same (if not better) results as an agency – but at a fraction of the cost.
From press release templates, to help with writing and media distribution services, our online tools will help you with all aspects of PR, whether you’re a start-up or an established company looking to grow.
Meet our founder
“Over the last decade I’ve worked exclusively with small food, drink and lifestyle businesses. I’ve supported fundraising campaigns, been a sounding board for expansion plans, helped with new product development, matched many different beverages with all types of foods, launched new products to media, taken wine exams, beer exams, cooking exams and PR exams… and generated the PR that my clients really needed at an affordable price. I have launched hundreds of new products, news stories and press events. And I’ve made some fantastic friends in the process. I really love what I do.”
