Services for SMEs

We view small to medium sized businesses as the clients of the future and see no reason why small businesses should not benefit from techniques that will allow them to punch well beyond their weight in a competitive marketplace.

We delight in helping fast-growing businesses get the message out and can help align existing marketing and sales messages so that the PR turbo-charges the business.
For smaller enterprises, our founder, Penny Haywood, wrote the best-selling business book: DIY PR, the small business owner's guide to 'free' publicity (Batsford 1998, paperback) covering 30 low cost PR/publicity techniques with guidance on how to select the right tools to align sales messages with the overall business objectives to get sales messages across effectively.

We also offer a press release writing and distribution service to support business owners attempting DIY  PR. This is undertaken on the understanding that PHPR does not represent the client in any way and the small business owner is solely responsible for the accuracy of the information provided and handles all media liaison themselves. They cannot describe themselves as a PHPR client: they are merely using a DIYPR support service.

We can also train small business owners in DIY PR
