Listed in a PR Hall of Fame

What a fantastic way to start the year… Check out the blog post below from news and PR agency, 72 Point. It’s very flattering to have my PR and coverage-generation skills recognised and to be included on a list of such prolific PRs:

A bank holiday well-spent

As I mentioned in a previous post, working a bank holiday over Christmas resulted in wide-spread national and online coverage for my client, HotVouchers.com. At the same time, I also pitched a story for another client, ToyBoy.com after they conducted a poll which revealed Denise Van Outen as the nation’s favourite cougar. The story was picked up by Metro, Daily Star and the News of the World, resulting in some excellent branded coverage for the toyboy-dating website. I’m so driven by results at any time of year, but seeing the coverage after working around the kids on a festive bank holiday is an even greater feeling!
