WHAT WE DO

How we ensure our clients success

social media

With PR at our roots, communication is second nature to how we present ourselves and represent our clients. Specialising in both B2B and B2C communications, we are well equipped to post, manage and review all manner of content across all social media channels.

Having produced content on a variety of social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube, we are well versed in various content types and lead generation through online platforms.

We offer:

  • Measurement of key metrics and audience assessment
  • Audience tailored campaigns and promotion to generate maximum engagement from your core markets
  • The ability to reach your KPIs, from improving website traffic to brand preference
  • Our knowledge of and access to key industry influencers and publications, allowing exposure on numerous blogs and online publications
press events

Planning and logistical management of your event can seem overwhelming at a distance – we understand that from being there ourselves!

We have organised and participated in events such as:

  • Christmas in July and other Consumer Media Events
  • Grand Designs Live
  • Ideal Home Show
  • Key Trade Events across the UK

Involvement in such events has allowed us to successfully connect key press, consumers and retailers with our clients, giving brand exposure and fostering enduring relationships.

In addition, we can create individual press events, attracting relevant and influential press. From celebrating a ground-breaking innovation to the introduction of a new product line, PR Direct can shine a national spotlight on your brand. We have worked with fantastic event spaces in London like Ice Tank, Divertimenti Cookery School and the RSA Vaults, tailoring each event to the needs of both brands and their audience.

WHO WE WORK WITH

Homeware, tabletop and hardware brands

PRD currently works with a number of housewares, tabletop and hardware brands, most of whom either sell through all the different distribution channels or are looking to do so. In some cases this is an area we have been helping our clients with too, suggesting a form of approach and also helping to source sales contacts/distributors where relevant. Our work has included liaison with major department store and online retailers.

We have worked with non-UK organisations extensively – liaising with principles or parent companies based outside of the UK and also those who did not have any UK operation.  Our international work has included companies from Portugal, Spain, Italy, the US, France, Scandinavia, the Netherlands and Belgium.
