PR & Communications

In a world where everyone is competing to be heard, we help clients cut through the noise with clear, effective PR and media.

We can help you tell your stories to inspire, engage and connect your target audience and act as a proactive and reactive press office function to deal with any PR issue. In a crowded marketplace, we help clients cut through the noise with clear, effective PR and media.

Media relations

Social’s team of PR professionals has many former journalists on board, so we know exactly how to work with the media to deliver stories they want to publish. From news scanning to stay on top of the agenda, to news jacking to take advantage of topical opportunities, we will work proactively to get you the publicity you need for your projects and services. We’re also here to act as a reactive press team for you, handling day-to-day media enquiries, monitoring for key stories outside of office hours and helping you through any crisis issues that arise.

Thought Leadership

Thought leadership blogs and columns offer an opportunity for our clients to position themselves as experts in their sectors. Whether they are blogs on your own website or well-placed articles in the local, national or trade media, they can ensure visibility for your senior leaders and demonstrate that your business is leading the conversation on the issues that matter.

Stakeholder Engagement

Collaboration is critical to regeneration projects – and we understand the importance of stakeholder communication in building strong relationships. Communities and stakeholders demand genuine, authentic communication from organisations – and they will call it out when they don’t see it. We can help you build inclusive relationships and empower people to share their voice by developing effective strategies, stakeholder mapping, social listening, surveys and consultation events.  All these tools help you identify the right messages and use the most effective channels to deliver them.

Campaigns

From behaviour change to public affairs activity linked to Government policy, our experienced team delivers campaigns across the country. We bring together integrated communications and marketing professionals with an innovative and creative spark to create compelling and impactful award-winning campaigns. We can take the lead at the strategic planning stages, craft meaningful content and imagery for the delivery and pull together comprehensive reports to demonstrate your impact.

Awards

We understand the important role that being nominated for – and winning – awards plays in raising the profile of our clients. Our experienced team have supported countless successful nominations, so we can do the research to find the right awards and categories for you and your sector and then write powerful and persuasive targeted submissions that stand out from the crowd to get your and your staff noticed.

Copywriting

Words matter – and our expert writers create copy that captures your target audience’s attention for all the right reasons.  We don’t use jargon that confuses and alienates people.  We’ve built our business by speaking fluent human – creating copy that people understand and react to.  Whether you need short, punchy text to grab attention, or in-depth research documents, our team delivers what you need to get your messages out.

Digital and Social Media

It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the sheer number of digital channels out there- but we have the skills to get your messages on the right platforms for your audience. We understand how different channels work and how best to use them. We’ve posted live on X at major events for our clients and created lively and engaging videos, imagery and brand assets for sharing on social media. We have also developed websites and microsites for campaigns and rebrands – all helping to raise awareness and inspire user generated content to amplify stories and bring about change.

Sustainability, ESG and Impact Communications

Telling your ESG story in an impactful way can be complex. Through a tried and tested approach, Social can help you address this challenge with a full set of services, from workshops that help you navigate the fast-moving world of ESG, to the structuring, drafting and production of your report. Whether you’re an investor making a positive impact, a business demonstrating your principles, or a not-for-profit telling your story to funders and key stakeholders, we are here to help you define and deliver your mission and your message.
